Product Details

Jane Wyman is a repressed wealthy widow and Rock Hudson is the hunky Thoreau-following gardener who loves her in Douglas Sirk’s heartbreakingly beautiful indictment of 1950s small-town America. Sirk utilizes expressionist colors, reflective surfaces, and frames-within-frames to convey the loneliness and isolation of a matriarch trapped by the snobbery of her children and the gossip of her social-climbing country club chums. Special Features * New widescreen digital transfer, enhanced for 16×9 televisions * A half hour of excerpts from Behind the Mirror: A Profile of Douglas Sirk, a 1979 BBC documentary featuring rare interview footage with the director * “Imitation of Life: On the Films on Douglas Sirk”: an illustrated essay by filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder * A collection of vintage lobby cards and production stills * Original theatrical trailer * English subtitles for the deaf and hearing impaired * Exclusive liner notes by noted film theorist Laura Mulvey
