A few months ago I reported that there was news that HBO’s 1991 bio-pic The Josephine Baker Story starring Lynn Whitfield as the legendary entertainer, would be coming out sometime on blu-ray DVD. (1991? WOW That was 20 years ago! How times flies! That was back when NO ONE had cable TV!)

Now, they have announced a date. The DVD will be released by HBO Home Entertainment on January 17, 2012; and among the extras with it will be an all-new audio commentary from Whitfield, screenwriter Ron Hutchinson, and associate producer Alisa Taylor.
