We just received at Unfair Park HQ a copy of Baz Luhrmann's 2001 extravaganza Moulin Rouge -- like we need another one? Only this one's got the pink sleeve you see at right, courtesy Dallas-based Susan G. Komen for the Cure. As it turns out, 20th Century Fox is partnering with Nancy Brinker's foundation to re-release a dozen popular titles in October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Among the DVDs being rebranded: Legally Blonde, Say Anything..., Thelma & Louise and ... There's Something About Mary? Says an accompanying release, Fox Home Entertainment and MGM Home Entertainment will donate a minimum of $250,000 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure in October.
In other local-related DVD news, today you can rush, rush, rush out and pick up the "special edition" of Robert Altman's Dr. T & The Women, the entirety of which was set and shot in Dallas. It only has two new features -- a short doc titled Robert Altman: Documentaries and Dreams and another one called Inventing a New Alphabet: Writing with Altman -- but it does, after all, feature this very famous scene involving the fountain at NorthPark Center. And, far as movies about Dallas go, it ain't, um, terrible. --Robert Wilonsky
