    That's pretty clearly a film element issue.

    That's what I assumed but they have had good masters so far and this has been the first one with this poor of a transfer. I've watched all of Duke's new BR's at least 5 times each and other then a couple that were poor quality this was the first with an actual flaw transfer.

    Has anybody investigated the running time of the 1958 Miserables? The French DVD is 217 minutes long. Interesting difference between this and the 188 minute Olive release.

    A poster on another forum claimed the Olive release is missing eight sequences.

    Update: a trustworthy poster on a French forum says the French DVD is 179, not 217 minutes. Then another trustworthy
    poster on the same forum checked the home page for the French Pathé company, which lists it as a two-part film (to be shown together) running 210 mins.

    And Stuart Galbraith IV, in his review over at DVDTalk, speculates that the 210 and 217 min. runtimes reported by Leonard Maltin and others are due to overture, entr´acte and exit music tracks etc. though that material can hardly make up for the difference.

    I just read on this informative Westerns blog

    http://fiftieswesterns.wordpress.com/

    that Olive Films has the blu-ray rights to another Regalscope western, Ambush At Cimarron Pass (1958) featuring a lanky young Clint Eastwood. So I looked it up on imdb and sure enough Olive is listed for DVD and blu-ray. Perhaps they'll release it after Showdown At Boot Hill (June 18) sells a few copies.

    [​IMG]

    Regal Films were a low-budget arm of Fox that shot blatantly commercial films for $100,000 or less in 6 days or less on the backlot. The films were in monochrome and widescreen and seldom ran over 75 minutes. There were juvenile deilnquent films, horror films, sci-fi films, noirs, and of course westerns. Some weren't half bad, and all were well-made.

    Due to some unforeseen issues the Audio Commentary for HANGAR 18 was dropped from the Olive Films release. The DVD and BD will not have any extras.

    Man with all the great Olive releases and all the great Shout/Scream releases...I'm going to need a second job. Also now that Warner is re-releasing some great stuff on blu and all of the great WAC titles...man my wife is gonna kill me :p So many great releases this year. It's a great time to be a lover of older catalog titles.

    Still keeping up hope Olive Films will release Three Ring Circus...hopefully it happens sooner rather than later, once these music clearances are attended to and taken care of.

    Yes we must keep up the pressure for 3 Ring Circus, another important VistaVision title.

    What happened? I asked the director on Facebook, he didn't know why it was dropped.

    Has Samuel Fuller's director's cut of Shark ever been released, as opposed to the producer's cut?

    MisterLime -- the press kit for Fedora has interesting info about the dubbing of Fedora´s (Marthe Keller) and the Countess´s (Hildegard Knef) dialogue. Inga Bunsch dubbed the English version, Marthe Keller the French and Hildegard Knef the German version. Seems Bunsch dubbed both Keller and Knef in English -- but the wording is unclear.

    Any chance of multiple soundtracks for the Olive Films release?

    Answering a few of the questions above...

    THREE RING CIRCUS will not be released by Olive Films.

    Only one version of SHARK exists. The extra scenes were probably destroyed by the film's producers in the 60s.

    FEDORA will be released later this year with the 1 hour Making-of doc - The audio will be the same audio as the Warner Brothers version released in the 70s

    I don't know why the HANGAR 18 audio commentary was dropped.

    Thanks, Mister Lime. Personally, I would love to see a blu release of Olive's Bob Hope releases (My Favorite Spy and Off Limits).
