    Foxy is right. Olive has it on it's list. Cagney produced it during his second independent phase (1942-1948) with his brother. The pictures were released by United Artists and JOHNNY COME LATELY was the first of three films. BLOOD ON THE SUN being the second. After the poor returns of the third film, THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE, he folded the company and went back to Warner's. Distribution of the films went to Republic and could have been an out right purchase of the titles to help Cagney pay off debts. So that's the history and why Olive has it. Looking forward to it also.

    Thanks for the info on those films. Forgot that Johnny Come Lately was on the Olive schedule. More Cagney is always welcome.

    Unfortunately, of those produced by Cagney's independent production company, Blood on the Sun was recently dropped from the schedule.

    Im glad to see the Noirs coming out here and there, but the one I want the most is still not out Beware My Lovely...its a great film and cast and only had a VHS release...I was hoping a title that hasn't even had a DVD release yet in the USA would go to the front of the line
    I wonder what determines what goes out when ?

    Nice to see Gordon Douglas get some attention on that KISS TOMORROW GOODBYE cover.

    I don't know what replacement titles have been acquired by Olive for the ones dropped from the schedule, but I'm hoping that one of them is THE PSYCHOPATH. It has turned up on TCM from time to time - albeit in a pan-and-scan version and it would make a nice double bill with DR. TERROR'S HOUSE OF HORRORS (which is also directed by Freddie Francis). If so, here's hoping that the film elements don't get in the way.

    Is Escape from Zahrain the one where James Mason makes an uncredited guest appearance? ("Oh, not my Scotch")

    Any more info about when Plunder Road will be released?
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0050847/combined

    IMDB says that there are two versions, one with voice over narration and one with out. It would be great to have both versions, e.g. an alternate sound track.

    Sure hope PLAYING FOR TIME will be the full-length t.v. movie and not the truncated version currently available on DVD.

    The running time for Playing For Time is 2 1/2 hours. It played at that length on TV. The DVD is 2 1/2 hours. How is this truncated?

    It seems you are correct, Thomas. It may have been a VHS release or something I was think of. In any case, the DVD looked like crap, so this can only be an improvement.
