The recent arrival of Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In on DVD reminded many of the comic genius of Lily Tomlin. While certain performers peaked during their time on the show, Tomlin went on to do so much. One of her big projects was The Incredible Shrinking Woman which played off the original movie that was more male oriented. While the earlier film had its character reduced because of atomic fallout, Tomlin’s housewife falls victim to the elements of being a housewife. Tomlin and other key folks participated in the bonus features to give a larger picture of the small film. Here’s the press release from Shout! Factory:
THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING WOMAN [COLLECTOR’S EDITION]
ARRIVES ON BLU-RAY™ NOVEMBER 14
LOADED WITH BONUS FEATURES, INCLUDING
A NEW INTERVIEW WITH LILY TOMLIN
Los Angeles, CA – On November 14, 2017, The Incredible Shrinking Woman [Collector’s Edition] comes to Blu-ray! Available for pre-order now on amazon.com and Shoutfactory.com, the releases is loaded with bonus features, including a new 2017 high-definition transfer, a new conversation with actress Lily Tomlin and writer/executive producer Jane Wagner, a new interview with Director Joel Schumacher, a new interview with cinematographer and visual effects supervisor Bruce Logan, a new audio interview with composer Suzanne Ciani, the new “On Location: Now and Then Featurette”, as well as the “Edith Ann” deleted scene, the theatrical trailer, and a still gallery.
She was an ordinary housewife who gave so much … and got so little. Comedy legend Lily Tomlin stars in the effervescent 1981 comedy The Incredible Shrinking Woman. Exposed to a heady mix of household chemicals, Pat Kramer (Tomlin) contracts a strange side effect: She begins to shrink! Baffling doctors, Pat’s diminishing size starts to really bring her down … until her story captures the hearts of the American people and the attention of a sinister group of scientists bent on world domination. Getting out of this predicament while still taking care of her family will be no small feat!
Also starring Charles Grodin (Midnight Run), Ned Beatty (Deliverance, Homicide: Life On The Street), and Tomlin’s fellow Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In alumnus Henry Gibson, and featuring makeup master Rick Baker (King Kong, Star Wars) as Sidney the gorilla, The Incredible Shrinking Woman is a smart little comedy with big laughs.
