Cannery Row (1982) 4K Blu-ray: A surreal Steinbeck rom-com

Warner Archive has announced the release of director David S. Ward’s funny Steinbeck adaptation of Cannery Row (1982) on a 4K restoration Blu-ray. Stars Nick Nolte, Debra Winger.

The canneries stand empty now that the sardines have abandoned the waters, but life continues on the Row. Here, you’ll find Doc (Nick Nolte), a marine biologist and community mentor; Suzy (Debra Winger), a good-hearted newcomer gone astray; and Mack, Hazel, and all the boys working hard at not working. Here, you’ll also find the love of a man for a woman, of a writer for a place and of life for more life. Based on works by John Steinbeck and written for the screen and directed by The Sting’s David S. Ward, Cannery Row – from its lyrical John Huston narration and saggy blues to its top-drawer performances, waterfront sets, and whimsical charm – is an atmospheric gem, one that has its world “spinning in greased grooves.”
