They're Region A locked.
That's not true, Robert. Some, probably all of the newer releases are definitely Region A locked - don't know whether there are any exceptions I only checked Cloak and Dagger and Hoodlum Empire, but the older ones, e.g. Hannie Caulder and Sands of the Kalahari are not region coded, they work both on my Region B player and I think there are many more region free discs from Olive from the "early" days.
Then I stand corrected as all of the Olive titles I own are locked.
Based on the Olive titles I own, it seems that Olive started region A locking around November 2012. All my Olive titles before that were region AB, everything from "Twilights Last Gleaming" and "The Trap" have been region A locked.
Speaking of William Powell (post 2151 above), unless I'm mistaken "The Senator Was Indiscreet" was a Republic release.
Will this be coming via Olive?
So Olive has more inventory to share with us. Wonderful news. I'm still haven't caught up with previous releases.
Mister Lime, keep the news coming.
men in war is one of my favorites. a little known actor made his debut vic morrow.
Isn't the correct title "Dead Pigeon on Beethoven Street", not "Dead Heat on Beethoven Street"?
Nope, he debuted in BLACKBOARD JUNGLE. He also did two other features and some TV before MEN IN WAR.
Have Young at Heart and Cry Danger been rescheduled for January as a couple of retailers have shown a 01-21-2014 release date?
Yes they have..Import CDs has them listed for Jan. 21 2014
Yet, DD has them releasing on October 15th. Hopefully, MisterLime can clairfied which date is correct.
I wonder if Olive is going to release the 85 or 91 minute version of Love Happy. The longer version was missing the scene in which Groucho observes that the show would have been saved if Vera-Ellen had accepted the sardines Harpo gave her.
Amazon has it for Jan. 2014 as well. Im certain its been pushed back , just some websites are faster than others with the updating
FINALLY, we are getting The Bells of St. Mary's, Flying Tigers, Operation Petticoat, Distant Drums, and my most wanted Olive title; Sands of Iwo Jima.
Distant Drums: the first appearance of the Wilhelm Scream
Sands of Iwo Jima: John Wayne's first Oscar nomination.
I hope these listed above come sooner rather than later
Maybe, as Amazon and ImportCDs are the two retailers I alluded to with my original question about the release date.
Yes. As Young at Heart is an eagerly awaited title for myself, I would be greatly interested in any update from Mr. Lime (who seems so intimately familiar with the goings-on at Olive).
A little insight from Eddie Muller from Black Alley Noir Forum:
Disappointed that Olive aren't using Film Noir Foundation restoration of future release of TRY AND GET ME.
Disappointed that Paramount seems to be using 2k. 4k is the bare minimum that should be used on a neg scan.
First of all, Mr. Muller is incorrect. Olive Films paid for the material they used for their release of CRY DANGER. Second, nothing has been decides regarding TRY AND GET ME, so please stop posting erroneous information.
