    On Blu-ray.com they posted that the UK branch of Fox announced that the Jean Negulesco's 1953 version of TITANIC will hit the stores as a Blu-ray title on April 2, 2012. Can always use some Barbara Stanwyck in Blu along with Audrey Dalton, Clifton Webb and Robert Wagner.

    With this news, I can only hope that Criterion will also do a Blu-ray release of A NIGHT TO REMEMBER, which I think is the best of all the Titanic films.

    It's interesting that the UK branch announces these so much further in advance than the US branch... We found out about "Cleopatra" in early October but we're still awaiting official confirmation on this side of the pond...

    Very glad to hear about this. I love the '53 Titanic. But like you, my main hope is for A Night To Remember to be announced on blu-ray.

    Going to be a heck of a period for Titanic buffs, given we got the classic out on blu a week before the anniversary and the Cameron movie out in theaters on April 9th.

    Just need History/A&E to reissue their 4 hour doc on the sinking and it's Christmas in April for me.

    This is will be the second Clifton Webb film to be released on BD. There will certainly be at least one more (Laura). TCM has been scheduling many of his unreleased films. I would love it if Fox would do one of its year end box sets devoted to him on BD, DVD or some combination.

    For fans of the 1953 Titanic, I just received my copy from Amazon UK. It's all region (ABC).

    Still no US release though, very strange.
