Remember when Francis Ford Coppola didn't make sh*t looking movies like Twixt? Well, for those who love the now flailing director's early work, his celebrated thriller The Conversation is making its first appearance on Blu-ray Disc and Digital Download from Lionsgate on October 25th.

The three-time Academy Award nominated film, (Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Sound, 1974) features an outstanding all-star cast including Gene Hackman and Robert Duvall alongside Harrison Ford, Frederic Forrest; and Cindy Williams and John Cazale.

From the release:
The Conversation won over critics and audiences with its innovative concept, and received further accolades with four Golden Globes nominations across categories - Best Drama, Best Director, Best Screenplay and Motion Picture Actor - Drama (Hackman).

Winner of the Golden Palm at the Cannes Film Festival, the film was selected for inclusion in the National Film Registry by the U.S. Library of Congress for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."

Restored to debut in high definition, The Conversation includes never-before-seen screen tests, an on-location retrospective featurette, archival audio, all-new interviews with Coppola and composer David Shire as well as archival footage, audio commentaries, a "making of" featurette, short film, marketing gallery and trailer.



Synopsis:
In an underground world of conspiracy, surveillance and mystery, the film follows expert wire-tapper and spy Harry Caul (Hackman) during a routine investigation. With a haunting past tormenting his every move, Caul makes it a golden rule to stay far outside of each project. However, his latest job turns out to be more than Caul bargained for when he's caught inside a web of murder and secrecy that threatens his safety - and his sanity.
