When Captain America Was JD Salinger’s Son

The original* Captain America movie is getting a new DVD rerelease as part of the MGM Limited Edition Collection – by which they mean manufactured on demand, with discs burned and despatched to order. Judging from this trailer, they’ve got some fairly good source materials.

Interestingly, the press release doesn’t mention director Albert Pyun anywhere. Nor that Matt Salinger, the star, is JD’s son. Or that those aren’t Salinger’s real ears when he’s in costume, but fake ones so that the plastic mask wouldn’t chafe him. I don’t think I’d let whoever wrote this press release on my pub quiz team.

The DVD will be available from July 19th.

*And best? Until we see the new one, we won’t know for sure, I suppose.
