There are some classic films being released on Blu-ray for the first time this week.
"Meet Me in St. Louis" -- Vincent Minnelli's film, considered one of the best musicals of all time, has never looked or sounded better, and fans will be amazed by the beauty of the production. You will be able to relive your memories of the film as you hear Judy Garland singing along with other members of the cast. This package also includes bonus features including the short film "Bubbles."
"Stars & Stripes Forever" -- Clifton Webb stars as John Philip Sousa in this tale of the marching band master's family life, Marine service and more. It features great music and includes extras such as advertising, still galleries and trailers.
"The Caine Mutiny" -- Nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Actor and Picture, this film features Humphrey Bogart as the unstable Captain Queeg. The writing and acting are outstanding, and the special features include commentary, documentary, subtitles, many languages and more.
"Tora, Tora, Tora" -- Daryl Zanuck wanted to make a big-budget film that showed the attack on Pearl Harbor from the American and Japanese sides. Though he succeeded, his movie lost millions at the box office. The stellar cast includes Joseph Cotten, Martin Balsam and Jason Robards. Among the special features are behind-the-scenes footage, trailers, a book and more.

The four-man Il Divo's concert was filmed at the London Coliseum, home of the English National Opera with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra. Some of the songs are "Wicked Game," "Crying," "Come What May" and "Time to Say Goodbye." There is also a behind-the-scenes documentary.
