Warner Home Video has added a DVD edition of director Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s 1977 film adaptation of the Muriel Sparks Nun-themed novel, “The Abbess of Crewe” — which reached the screen as Nasty Habits — to its Aug. 19 release calendar.
This all-star comedy (a spoof of the recent Watergate scandal) features the likes of Glenda Jackson as Sister Alexandra and her minions, Sister Walburga (Geraldine Page) and Sister Mildred (Anne Jackson), who are pitted against Sister Felicity (played by Susan Penhaligon) and her novice nuns over control of the Abbey of Crewe. It is a no-holds-barred affair with comedy veterans (Jerry) Stiller and (Anne) Meara, plus Eli Wallach, Rip Torn and Melina Mercouri joining the fun.
Also added to the Aug. 19 release calendar is the five-disc DVD set of Maya: The Complete Series, teaming Jay North (of Dennis the Menace fame) with Sajid Khan in an adventure series that was filmed on location in the Kashmir region of northern India.
