Beaches Re-issue Washes Ashore Today

Ms. Inez: Mister D, or Donny as I refer to him, wanted me to remind you that the Beaches Special Edition DVD is being released today. I’m guessing all of you know that. I’m staying with Donny and Barry one week out of each month, so don’t be surprised to see me pop up every once in awhile. Donny should be back in the swing of things soon. Just give him some time. Thank you.

At last the beloved film BEACHES, from director Gary Marshall (“Raising Helen,” “Pretty Woman”), will be available to own in a superb SPECIAL EDITION DVD on April 26.

Starring Bette Midler (“The First Wives Club,” “The Stepford Wives”) and Barbara Hershey (“Riding The Bullet”), this new edition of BEACHES will include new audio commentary with director Gary Marshall; never before seen Beaches bloopers; music video “Wind Beneath My Wings” performed by Bette Midler; Mayim Bialik’s Beaches memories; Barbara Hershey’s original screen test for the film; the film’s original Theatrical trailer; and a segment from the American Film Institute special program “100 Songs with Bette Midler.”

The BEACHES SPECIAL EDITION DVD will be available for $19.99 (S.R.P.) from Touchstone Home Entertainment.

Arriving in time for Mother’s Day, BEACHES glows with warmth, humor, and tenderness, as this is one friendship you’ll enjoy every minute of. Brassy C.C. Bloom (Bette Midler) and classy Hillary Whitney (Barbara Hershey) met on a beach when they were very young. Through good times and bad times, through broken marriages and budding careers, they always had each other. And together, they would face their greatest challenge … as only best friends could. Hershey is splendid, and Midler will astound you all over again with her comedic and musical talents in this critically acclaimed box office smash.

The screenplay for BEACHES is by Mary Agnes Donoghue. Based on the book by Iris Rainer Dart. Directed by Garry Marshall. The excellent cast of BEACHES includes John Heard (“White Chicks”), the late Spalding Gray (“Kate and Leopold”), Lainie Kazan (“My Big Fat Greek Wedding”), James Read (“Legally Blonde”) and Mayim Bialik (TV’s “Blossom”).
