Peyton Place - The Classic Mia Farrow/Ryan O'Neal Prime Time Soap Finally Comes Home on DVD!

Shout! Factory reveals that a 5-disc collection will invade your community in May

Posted by David Lambert
The 1956 novel Peyton Place by Grace Metalious was full of controversy: low moral standards and high levels of tawdry hijinks drawn from real-life small town experiences made the book a best seller (although owners often hid their copies from friends and family). It also made the story a perfect fit for Hollywood, leading to Fox's 1957 film Peyton Place, and the 1961 sequel Return to Peyton Place. Then, in 1964 the novel was adapted into a highly successful prime-time soap opera, which aired on ABC for 5 seasons.

The show starred Mia Farrow (Rosemary's Baby, The Last Unicorn), leading the cast as "Allison MacKenzie." Other original stars included Ryan O'Neal (Love Story, Paper Moon), Barbara Perkins (Valley of the Dolls, Captains and the Kings), Ed Nelson (Midway, For the Love of Benji and Dorothy Malone (The Big Sleep, The Last Sunset as Allison's mother, Constance. Other actors who would appear during the show's run included Tim O'Connor, Mariette Hartley, Leslie Nielsen, David Canary, Mary Anderson, James Doohan, Greg Morris, Micky Dolenz, Glynn Turman, Lana Wood, Susan Oliver, Gena Rowlands and Joan Van Ark.

We're pleased to break the news that Shout! Factory has licensed the series, and is bringing it home to DVD at last beginning with their May 19th release of Peyton Place - Part 1. This first collection running 720 minutes long will arrive on 5 discs. The show's five-year run made the transition to color beginning with the beginning of the third season, but the first two years' worth of episodes were broadcast in black-and-white. From the information available to us right now, it appears that Shout! is preserving the original on-air presentation of full screen black-and-white video, with English mono audio. There's been no word yet about bonus materials, if any, but Shout! usually tries to include some sort of extras. The studio has provided us with a picture of the eye-catching package art for this title:
