The Naked Gun"Planes, Trains And Automobiles," "Airplane!" and "The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad" make their Blu-ray debut exclusively at Best Buy on September 25 from Paramount Home Entertainment. 

Written and directed by John Hughes, the hilarious classic "Planes, Trains And Automobiles" stars Steve Martin and John Candy as a businessman and traveling salesman forced together by circumstance as they try to get home in time for Thanksgiving.  

The Blu-ray features a brand new, in-depth retrospective on John Hughes’ career that includes new interviews and explores his indelible impact as a writer and filmmaker.  Additional features include "Getting There is Half the Fun: The Story of Planes, Trains And Automobiles," "John Hughes For Adults," a tribute to John Candy and a deleted scene.

A masterpiece of off-the-wall comedy, "Airplane!" tells the story of an ex-fighter pilot who takes control of an airliner when the crew is incapacitated—and skewers airplane disaster flicks, religious zealots, television commercials and everything else in its path along the way.

Leslie Nielsen stars as Police Squad's own granite-jawed, rock-brained cop Frank Drebin, who bumbles across a mind-control scheme to assassinate Queen Elizabeth in "The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad." Priscilla Presley, Ricardo Montalban, a stuffed beaver, two baseball teams and an odd assortment of others join the wacko goings-on.
