    Moe, I stand corrected. Unfaithfully Yours is indeed still available from the Criterion Collection, though Amazon only has it only from third-party sellers. Criterion sometimes licenses on a non-exclusive basis; Sony is putting out another Criterion title, Anatomy of a Murder, through its MOD program this month. Universal released its own version of My Man Godfrey last year. Justin, Say One for Me wasn't in the FCA press release. Thanks A Million was. Sometimes they announce stuff and pull it back. This happened to Deadline USA. This week's column covers Warner Archives Collection's Philo Vance Collection, the Dead End Kids in Hell's Kitchen, West of Shanghai with Boris Karloff, the uber-rare Rare of the Dragon, and the Lucille Ball-Victor Mature musical Seven Days' Leave.

    Can you confirm that Holiday For Lovers is in the proper CinemaScope format, Mr Lumenick?

    Maybe a Blu set with three of Clifton Webb's biggest hits: Sitting Pretty, Cheaper by the Dozen, and Three Coins in the Fountain.

    I'll second that. But add in Woman's World; a star-studded CinemaScope spectacular that needs to be saved from going to the hell of FCA's P&S MOD discs. The Man Who Never Was and The Razor's Edge would be quite welcome as well.

    I also noticed the significant upswing of Clifton Webb material both on blu-ray and MOD (yet no Sitting Pretty. WHY?). The MODs also are some of the better looking releases they've had for the most part. I hope to see more.

    Hawaii? MOD? At the bottom of a double bill? Someone must have it in for Julie Andrews.
    Victor/Victoria also went MOD.

    Despite the fact that they both feature Max Von Sydow, HAWAII and NEEDFUL THINGS make a rather strange double bill!!

    Can anyone confirm if that release of Hawaii is different than the old MGM release? The description starts with "This restored film version..." which makes me wonder if it is uncut or at least more uncut that the previous DVD.

    There's a thread about the TGG HAWAII. And I picked up their ONE EYED JACKS. Both are crap.

    Yes, this is a link we definitely need to bookmark if we want to keep up with Lou's views on archive releases.
