    Any of the 1953 3-D films. TT mentioned they would be doing one in 2014.

    You missed Mad Magician. It's probably going to be Mad Magician or Miss Sadie Thompson for their first 3D title. Maybe they could include one or both of the 3 Stooges shorts in 3D.

    No, I didn't miss The Mad Magician. I left it out deliberately because I'm tired of it. There are other 3-D films I'd rather see released before The Mad Magician. Like Gun Fury or Miss Sadie Thompson, for example.

    I have never seen The Mad Magician. Is it that bad? Miss Sadie Thompson would be a better choice.

    The Mad Magician is quite good, actually. You're bound to enjoy it. I've just seen it too often and there are more interesting 3-D films that I would like to study technically. Miss Sadie Thompson for example, is the most abbreviated of the three adaptations of Somerset Maugham's novel. Some people think it chickens out. I might criticize the script for condensing too much of the story, but what it does is just fine. As comfortable as I am with with genre and cult films, it is a refreshing change of pace to watch an adult drama in 3-D that isn't a horror film. Raoul Walsh's GUN FURY was shot in the red-rock country of Sedona, Arizona which alone is sufficient reason to release it in 3-D yesterday. The stereoscopic photography is artfully done, the prolonged chase across the landscape is suspenseful and a visual pleasure, and the story intelligently told. One of the better westerns of the decade. Raoul Walsh was no slouch when it comes to strong character interaction, violent action and a suspenseful chase.

    I'm guessing the REMAINS OF THE DAY Blu coming from the UK will be region-free, and at $13 it's reasonably priced.

    I've been reading the history of filming in Sedona, Arizona --

    bk3334.jpg

    before the landscape gave way to progress. Out of 90+ feature films Gene Autry only made two in color, THE STRAWBERRY ROAN (Columbia, 1948) and THE BIG SOMBRERO (Columbia, 1949). Of the two, THE STRAWBERRY ROAN was partially shot in Sedona, one of the earliest color films to show the red rock country, and on the same sets and locales as THE ANGEL AND THE BADMAN (1947). Both were fully restored and released by Image on DVD. Those are oop and going for insane prices:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000S6LS7U/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me=&seller=

    StrawberryRoan-1947.jpg

    I should have bought it when the Autry series were two for $5.

    Twilight Time might want to consider releasing THE STRAWBERRY ROAN on blu. I can afford one of those per month.

    How about:

    THE LONG SHIPS 1964

    I saw this at the cinema when I was 13 & thought it was the best thing ever. I don't think that anymore, but I do have a soft spot for it. It was shot in Technirama 70 & 6 track stereo (but I'm not sure if it was ever released in stereo), so it could look & sound fantastic. I'd have no trouble paying Twilight Time prices for it.

    Would LOVE just a few more of these colorful wide-screen historical epics in blu-ray, as they look SO much better in HD. Many of us older folk who loved them so as kids just wish you'd toss us a crust of bread from time to time:

    SALOME

    The first serious and historical Robin Hood film written by playwright James Goldman, a bittersweet romance, reuniting Sean Connery with Robert Shaw, and with a John Barry score to die for:

    Robin and Marian is an excellent choice.

    Maybe TT could include Michel LegrandĀ“s unused score. 10 cues have been released on French CD:

    PEPE - an all star cast, a bit like Won Ton Ton. I have seen it just the once and that will do for me!
