    Well, Fox showing some interest in a blu-ray of BOAD gives a ray of hope, at least. It does seem to indicate that good elements exist. And, I must admit, I've really come to admire Fox SO MUCH more than the underachievers at, say, WB. They did just give us AGONY AND THE ECSTASY and 300 SPARTANS and let LONG HOT SUMMER and O. HENRY'S FULL HOUSE go to Germany. Let's keep our hopes up, as this is really good news. Just hope Fox is listening in here!

    I hope you are right Doug.
    Nothing in the latest TT releases interests me so I trust it won't be too long in coming.

    God, let's hope so! This plethora of 80s and 90s titles is depressing.

    With the summer here in Greece, remembered that I'm still looking forward to seeing this movie.

    it seems there's still no word from anyone.. :(

    Some GREAT news I've just learned in TT's facebook.


    Someone posted this news about a 4K restoration of the film that will be shown:

    As TT replied, the studio has other plans for it ( implying I guess that FOX themselves will release it)

    They would go to all that trouble of a 4k restoration, just for an inferior streaming?

    I don't think so..

    And if they didn't want to release it on Bluray, they could give it to TT to release it as a limited edition.


    I hope we see it this summer...

    Just saw this on Misterlime's Official Kino thread. Kino is releasing Boy On A Dolphin (1957) as a new 4K restoration onto
    Blu-ray. This also bodes well for a possible UHD Blu-ray release later on.

    Kinda surprised that TT didn't get it but congratulations to Kino Lorber and Misterlime.


    Count me in for a Day 1 Order.

    Kino has been a godsend in giving us all these incredible classic films but THIS beats everything! Plus, I've been through my The Vikings five times now and couldn't be more pleased. They are the greatest!
