    Didn't Twilight Time announce they would be releasing The Man Fom Laramie at some stage?

    Seems that the Danish distributor SoulMedia has pretty much thrown in the towel with any further classic film BD releases. I have THE LION IN WINTER, which I guess is serviceable, not great by any means. They put out ALEXANDER THE GREAT, DAVID & BATHSHEBA, and THE EGYPTIAN. They also released a gorgeous looking DRUMS ALONG THE MOHAWK that had horrible sound problems. I'll certainly be springing for the TT releases. I guess I just wish that TT would revisit some of these big historical epics like ALEXANDER and DAVID & BATHSHEBA or a couple that never had any BD release whatsoever, like SOLOMON AND SHEBA, STORY OF RUTH and THE VIKINGS. The one I'm excited about that they are doing is KHARTOUM. Some of us experienced these in theaters when we were kids and are quite attached to them still.

    Speaking of Fox historical Cinemascope epics, I'd love to see Twilight Time issue The Virgin Queen.

    Just to be thorough. TT had two confessions."I had a brain flash after reading your Rollerball (1975) announcement. This has popped in my mind.March 2014Rollerball (1975)Bring Me The Head of Alfredo Garcia (1974)Alien Nation (1988)?"TT: "You correctly picked one of our March titles!"So we actually know two of TT's March titles. But which two?

    Yes they did. They also mentioned They Rode Together (1961), Bring Me The Head of Alfredo Garcia (1974), and First Men in the Moon (1964). Alfredo will appear early in 2014 and First Men sometime after The Blob (1988).

    Can't wait for "First Men in the Moon," but I want "Valley of Gwangi!" The SD is a beautiful print upscaled, I can just imagine what it would look like as a BD.

    Now that we know that TT will be releasing La Bamba, perhaps The Buddy Holly Story is on the horizon.

    and with the fact that they are doing The Blue Max, would also like to see some of the other Fox War Classics, would love to see Sam Fuller's Fixed Bayonets

    and I don't think that Twilight has featured any titles with Roy Webb as Composer as of yet?

    i WOULD LOVE The Buddy Holly Story on Blu ray! What a great biopic.
    I did buy the Region B British Blu ray of this title, and ended getting rid of it as fast as I could. It was shoddy ... washed out and inferior in every respect to the DVD. If it does come out, I hope it's not just a repeat of the UK travesty which has to be one of the worst Blu rays in history.

    I still have the BD and it is a stinker to be sure.
