The Harder They Come Gets a Digital Re-Release
The Harder They Come, the iconic 1972 Jamaican film that starred reggae legend Jimmy Cliff, has been digitally remastered and re-released in high-definition. Fans can now download the new version of the film—which was first shown in theaters last September as part of a one-night event—via its official website, as well as through iTunes.
The Harder They Come was a smash hit in Jamaica, and the film surprised many by crossing over into international markets. The movie is most famous for its reggae soundtrack, which first introduced much of the world to reggae music.
