Network to Release ‘Miss Leslie’s Dolls’ and ‘Who Killed Teddy Bear’ on Blu-ray!

on

UK’s Network is gearing up to release  Miss Leslie’s Dolls and Who Killed Teddy Bear on Blu-ray, providing both films with their debut in the format. First up is Miss Leslie’s Dolls coming on September 3rd. This lost grindhouse classic is a demented tale of possession and transvestitism from director Joseph G. Prieto. Thought to have been lost to time, the original film elements were discovered and remastered specifically for this new release. The restoration puts the film in it original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and was careful to remove film dirt and damage while correcting instability, warping and density fluctuations.

Synopsis:
Stranded in the backwoods during a thunderstorm, a beautiful teacher and her three promiscuous students take refuge at a lonely house owned by the middle-aged Miss Leslie. Miss Leslie, however, is less a mild-mannered spinster and more an axe-wielding, homicidal cross-dresser intent on transferring his spirit into the nubile body of any girl foolish enough to come visiting…

Aspect ratio: 1.85:1

Then on September 17th, Network will release the psychedelic 1965 noir, Who Killed Teddy Bear. While previously released on DVD, this sleazy film featuring Sal Mineo as pornography-addicted, bodybuilding bus boy has been newly scanned and restored from a surviving 35mm print and will be presented in the original 1.85:1 aspect ratio. Missing scenes have been re-instated from a 16mm print and the image matched up as best as possible.

Synopsis:
A grim police detective embarks on a one-man crusade to track down a depraved sex maniac when a nightclub dancer receives a disturbing series of obscene phone calls. Finding himself getting far too close to the victim for comfort, the hard-boiled cop must track down the unbalanced pervert before he can carry out his sick threats…
