    Recorded this onto a DVD-R off of FMC several years ago. Still need to watch it.

    JEREMY is an all-time favorite for me. It's always looked pretty rough, though, like it was blown up to 35mm from 16.

    Regarding WHEN THE LEGENDS DIE (1972)
    Did FMC air the film widescreen and anamorphic?

    Letterbox, IIRC. Not 16x9, though.

    Most of these are shown on MGM HD ,so if there's no BR .you can watch excellent versions on that channel

    I'd like to see a better transfer than the one from Hen's Tooth. Mylene Demongeot is a huge draw for me. For her, Steve Reeves sunk the entire Persian navy in GIANT OF MARATHON (1960).A "foreign" film I'd like to see legit is A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE (1957) by Sidney Lumet. That seems to have been a US/French co-production, and seems to be in some sort of rights quagmire. French ownership? The Arthur Miller estate?

    WILD ROVERS belongs to Warner. They released a spectacular DVDr through WAC and it would look spectacular in Blu.

    MGM controls United Artists, right? Twilight Time has a deal with MGM. Might Twilight Time consider releasing the United Artists 3-D film noir I THE JURY (1953)? photographed by John Alton himself? Audiences love this film when they see it in 3-D.

    Bob Furmanek has said several times that there are other rights issues with I The Jury - it's not under the current control of MGM but he can elaborate further perhaps.

    Could be something similar to the Alan Ladd version of "The Great Gatsby" - the rights to the novel were limited to a limited amount of time. The rights need to be renegotiated for any theatrical revival or TV showings, and for any home video release, and that could be expensive.

    It seems the owners have zero interest in allowing any sort of release.

    I would love for Twilight Time to release Ken Russell's The Music Lovers - it would make a divine Blu-Ray.

    Absolutely. I love this film. I had never seen it until I picked up the Laserdisc. At that time I was collecting anything on Laserdisc that was letterbox. I fell in love with it and was very disappointed the DVD was not anamorphic. But this is still a twice yearly viewing with friends.

    Bring on a Blu-ray.

    What about the 1965 MGM John Sturges film The Satan Bug? Is there any chance that Twilight Time could release this on Blu-Ray? I would love to get this movie on Blu-Ray! The MOD DVD is not good. I would be happy with just a good anamorphic DVD release if they wouldn't want to do Blu-Ray. Anyone have any information about whether there are any plans by Twilight , MGMt, or some other company like Criterion or Shout to release The Satan Bug on a good Blu-Ray or a good anamorphic widescreen DVD or MOD?

    Thanks!

    Robert
