ISHTAR: A Flop Too Good for DVD

This morning, Sony announced Elaine May’s notorious 1987 flop ISHTAR for home video release at long last on January 4th, 2011.  Long-requested by home theater enthusiasts, the Warren Beatty/Dustin Hoffman-starring comedy is skipping DVD entirely and coming exclusively to Blu-ray.  Yup, DVD isn’t good enough for the film that ran Coca-Cola out of the film business and nearly ended Elaine May’s career.
