    Carmen Jones and The Ghost and Mrs Muir in the same month. Great. Is is a coincidence that they both featured in the Fox poll of desired releases on this site? From memory The Ghost and Mrs Muir won in its grouping, and Carmen Jones came second .... getting trumped only because of unbelievably heavy voting for a rival on the very final day of the poll.

    I see. Well, I'm glad I kept voting for them both. Took me a minute to work out release date ... over here 12/3 means March 12, which is tomorrow! I keep forgetting that in America you put the month first instead of the day ........

    Eh, what? That was one of the last film I ever expected to see given blu-ray treatment. It was unceremoniously and quietly released on DVD a while back, so I never thought Fox had much faith in their early talkies given how few of them are actually released by Fox. Great news nonetheless.

    One of the odd things about Blu-ray is that titles that were prepped for DVD release later in that format's cycle (say, 2005-07) have HD masters easier to tweak just a bit more or ready to go for Blu-ray than the earlier DVD releases of classics.

    Very true, though considering the films that have yet to get released and what has ended up through Twilight Time, it is most surprising.

    man if Fox is releasing In Old Arizona, perhaps there's hope they'll release the two rarest BP releases, the never screened on TV, never released on video East Lynne and The White Parade.

    I'm changing the now sub-licensed new-to-Blu Paramount-to-Warner titles to being listed as "Warner" as it appears, unlike the MGM/Fox arrangement, these are essentially Warner releases with minimal involvement by Paramount.

    Updated:

    The Fog (1980) (Shout Factory) - coming to Blu-ray 7/30/13
    The Incredible Melting Man (1977) (Shout Factory) - coming to Blu-ray 7/30/13
    The Odd Couple (1968) (Warner) - coming to Blu-ray 6/4/13
    Shane (1953) (Warner) - coming to Blu-ray 6/4/14
