    WITCHBOARD 2?? Really...? Ugh... :wacko:

    Hopefully Olive took some time and interviewed James Hong for THE BAMBOO SAUCER. He's certainly willing to talk about any of his movies.

    Cry Danger is an excellent film noir, a definite purchase. Bang Bang is so-so, a jokey spy movie with a good cast mostly wasted.

    BANG! BANG! YOU'RE DEAD! -- How did this American International Pictures release fall into the hands of Paramount?

    For that matter, CRY DANGER was originally released by RKO.

    Any extras for Cry Danger? Would love to see an interview with Rhonda Fleming and Richard Erdman. I'm sure Film Noir Foundation can make it happen...

    I guess we can expect the original NIGHT OF THE DEMONS from Olive some time, what with WB2 and NotD 2.

    MisterLime, is there any chance that Olive will upgrade Bresson's The Devil, Probably? Also, are the Bo Widerberg films still on track for release this year? Thanks.

    About a year ago I read an interview with Rhonda Fleming. It was in a music magazine and was done as a consequence of her 1950s vinyl album being released on CD in Australia. Rhonda Fleming's mind is clearly in good condition and she was articulate and informative.

    I'm puzzled that she's never asked to contribute to DVDs and BRDs of her films.

    I was able to see the Film Noir Foundation restoration of CRY DANGER a few years ago and I can add my thumbs up! to those who have already written - an excellent film with a fine performance by Richard Erdman as the best friend stock character. This is the first film by Robert Parrish who went on to direct some nice work in various genres, such as the classic (to me, anyway) Robert Mitchum western THE WONDERFUL COUNTRY.

    I am guessing that it was originally a Commonwealth United production that was released by AIP; many films of theirs went through AIP but ultimately reverted back to NTA when they acquired the library.

    THE PAWNBROKER...?
    DR. TERROR'S HOUSE OF HORRORS...?
    SANDS OF IWO JIMA...?
    OPERATION PETTICOAT...?
    some awfully good A-titles still not released!

    I realize this is my personal wish list, that not everything can come out at once, that holding off on some titles might mean a better-looking eventual release, and that these titles will almost certainly come out in time.

    I just get worried that something will happen to prevent these four from happening.

    You're on the right track by mentioning Commonwealth United. But it's not because BANG! BANG! YOU'RE DEAD! was a CU production or because AIP released some CU productions. When CU went bankrupt in 1970, AIP picked up some of their unreleased films (such as BATTLE OF NERETVA and JULIUS CAESAR) for AIP release. But BANG! BANG! YOU'RE DEAD! had been released by AIP years before, in 1966, just as CU was beginning its short life.

    Further research reveals that the Landau-Unger Company was one of the companies (apparently the controlling one) that produced BANG! BANG! YOU'RE DEAD! The Landau-Unger Company was formed In 1961 by Ely Landau and Oliver Unger and produced such films as LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT and THE PAWNBROKER. The Landau-Unger Company was sold to Commonwealth United Corporation in 1967, at which time Unger was named Vice Chairman of Commonwealth United Company.

    So that's how BANG! BANG! YOU'RE DEAD! ended up with CU and subsequently with Paramount, rather than with AIP/MGM.

    i still can't believe they scrapped breakthrough and fighter attack both of which are classic war movies.
