    Its app was poor, and I'm glad it's changed. I trust the rest is a work in progress. You can follow him on Twitter and Facebook, where he's been reporting from Toronto.

    I most certainly agree.
    If it wasn't for Lou Lumenick, then I would remove the site from my favourites instantly.

    What a complete stuff-up.

    Thanks so much for the link, Bob. Even with his sometimes faulty research (one of Bergman's subsequent Oscars after her split from Rossellini was for leading actress in Anastasia, not supporting, and she won an Emmy for The Turn of the Screw decades before the posthumous one for A Woman Called Golda, Drums Along the Mohawk was NOT nominated for a cinematography Oscar, Bing Crosby was Oscar-nominated for The Bells of St. Mary's, too), I always enjoy his overviews of recent releases.

    Subtitle for that article should be "In the States", as quite a few of the titles mentioned can be easily found in UK, Australia, etc.

    If you read the article he mentions several titles are available as imports.

    It's been hashed over on Facebook. A good list, though; wish he still chimed in here from time to time.

    The big "news" from this article is that he says that Fox is working to clear the rights issues associated with Shirley Temple's Poor Little Rich Girl. I really hope so. If Lou reads this thread, a great addition for a future list would be The Suspect, with Charles Laughton. I haven't seen it for years, and it would really mesh well with the kinds of hard to find films Universal has been sending to Criterion.

    The Suspect was recently released on DVD in Germany, so the title is in play somewhere.

    The only thing I don't like about Lou is when he writes about unavailable-rare films, links the YouTube videos,which brings attentions to them, where half the time they are pulled shortly thereafter.

    Lou - please keep our "underground movie-viewing secret" a secret,ok? :)
