    The DVD release for The Matchmaker also looked very good as I recall.

    I just watched the Matchmaker DVD last night, after having watched Hello, Dolly! last week. The DVD is beautiful and a blu ray should look spectacular.

    Gosh, that one slipped past me.
    It's hard to believe that Paramount themselves actually released a wide screen version of The Matchmaker on DVD.
    Most unlike Paramount to release a title that doesn't star Audrey Hepburn ;-)

    It appears to be discontinued now because Amazon's dealers are offering new copies from $44.50. (thanks but no thanks)

    Maybe Paramount themselves will think Blu-ray.
    On second thoughts no Audrey Hepburn so Olive might be our best and only bet.

    In the meantime the old 4:3 matted Laserdisc will suffice.
    It does have the isolated film score by Adolph Deutsch which is great to have.

    Does the Paramount DVD contain the isolated score?

    Doug.

    If you can't wait for a Blu-ray release, VUDU and iTunes have The Matchmaker available for HD streaming, though it costs just as much as a Blu-ray.

    Thanks Mark,
    I'm not into streaming (as yet), so I guess I'll just have to wait and keep the laserdisc handy.

    I was just wondering if they will have the UK cut of Breaking Glass as well as the USA one on the disc or whether licensing restrictions prevent this.

    I love Flame Of Barbary Coast - "with the compliments of the house" - but I never did get around to buying it on DVD. I will definitely, but definitely buy this BRD.

    One Touch Of Venus is not by any normal reckoning a good film. It has two major assets. Speak Low is a brilliant song and Franz Planer's photographing of Ava Gardner shows her to be one of the all-time great screen beauties. If this BRD comes from good elements, it will be worth buying just to ogle Ava in high definition.

    "One Touch of Venus" did get a Republic Pictures Laserdisc release.
    It is a good quality disc, so hopefully the blu-ray should look great.

    And yes Ava looks really gorgeous in this one.

    The two westerns seem up my alley. Despite the likelihood of being a riskier purchase, I can't turn down any of Charles Bronson's early performances.
    I'm also more interested in this one due to Frank Tashlin's co-writer credit and looking for flashes of his comic sensibilities that made it on screen. Otherwise I agree that Ava Gardner is by and far the film's biggest asset, which helped cement her growing reputation at the time as a screen goddess.
