Nick Nolte and Debra Winger in CANNERY ROW will be available on Blu-ray From Warner Archive. Ordering information can be found HERE

The canneries stand empty now that the sardines have abandoned the waters, but life continues on the Row. Here, you’ll find Doc (Nick Nolte), a marine biologist and community mentor; Suzy (Debra Winger), a good-hearted newcomer gone astray; and Mack, Hazel and all the boys working hard at not working. Here, you’ll also find the love of a man for a woman, of a writer for a place and of life for more life. Based on works by John Steinbeck and written for the screen and directed by The Sting’s David S. Ward, Cannery Row — from its lyrical John Huston narration and saggy blues to its top-drawer performances, waterfront sets and whimsical charm — is an atmospheric gem, one that has its world “spinning in greased grooves.”

John Steinbeck’s beloved pair of Monterey Bay novellas “Cannery Row” and “Sweet Thursday” get adapted for the big screen in this ahead-of-its-time sophisticated throwback to simple, sweeter days. Nick Nolte and Debra Winger star as tide-tossed lovers marine biologist Doc and bordello ingenue Suzy whose awkward and charming romance is aided and abetted by the plethora of eccentric oddballs who refuse to abandon the failed fishing village they call home. Written for the screen and directed by David S. Ward (The Sting), Cannery Row adapts Steinbeck with an American take on magical realism, thanks to Ward and the captivating camerawork of Sven Nykvist along with a superb production design team, that is revealed in all its quiet wonder thanks to this long overdue new HD presentation from a 4K scan of the original camera negatives. Theatrical Trailer (HD) 16×9 Widescreen
