    Curse/Night of the Demon is a Columbia/Sony title, so I don't know why not Elijah.

    Although The Abominable Snowman was exhibited by Fox domestically, it is a Hammer picture, so its N.A. home video rights seem less clear...last seen stateside via Anchor Bay DVD.

    As for First Men In the Moon, I have a gut feeling that much like the 2 remaining Sinbad movies last year it will be in our Christmas stockings for '14. At least I hope so...probably just depends on what Mr. Crisp has in his hopper right now.

    Okay, I'm officially envious Allen. I was just in the mood to watch that one, but suspect my own delivery is still 10 days away, depending on the dogsleds*. So it's Fever Pitch instead tonight; Stewart will just have to wait until Easter weekend.

    MR. HOBBS TAKES A VACATION looks great. Colors are nice, sound is mono and there is the right amount of grain. And Maureen O'Hara is just alway gorgeous. What a wonderful actress and I wish I could have the opportunity to see her this year at the TCM Film Festival. I hope the sales are successful to bring us TAKE HER SHE'S MINE and DEAR BRIDGET. I do have both the MOD of TAKE HER and the European Blu of BRIDGET.

    Wonderful news Allen.

    I don't think there was a dog amongst Stewart's early/mid-60s Fox pictures. All well-written, well-directed, well-performed, and solidly crafted. In our household, there was never any dissent over seeing his latest, even when they played at our upscale Belle theatre without a 2nd feature. Jimmy's pix were just a given.

    BTW, I felt no letdown whatsoever watching Fever Pitch tonight. What a marvelous little movie...with charm and wit to spare. I wish more domestic rom-coms could get that infectious mix of character and story right...it wouldn't be such a debased genre.

    Fever Pitch. Never heard of it. Bought it, watched it, and as Steve stated, marvelous little movie, etc., etc.

    I had no frame of reference strong enough to even imagine how Fever Pitch would play Jose...total blind faith buy. And it's not like I jumped on it when the SAE box arrived either; FP ended up being the very last on my list of March TT titles to make it to my player. Yet this one is a keeper...I just started watching it again with the Redman/Kirgo commentary on for another level of entertainment.

    I do hope more folks take a chance on this one. It really sneaks up on you.

    Plus watching Colin Firth's character develop is charming, moving, exasperating, so human. It's definitely a sleeper. But haven't we said the same thing about Rapture, Swamp Water, and how people should take a chance on them?

    Yeah, I know Jose...and they do...at least some of them...eventually.

    In fact, I just received a message here yesterday from a poster from Blu-ray.com who remembered my enthusiasm over Rapture and Swamp Water 2 plus years ago. I think TT's recent sale had more to do with those blind buys, but for more obscure (and initially somewhat head-scratchin') titles such as those or Fever Pitch, it just seems to take awhile for that "A-ha...now I see why they ran with it" moment to hit home.

    I mean, I didn't exactly rip open the SAE box and watch Fever Pitch immediately either...but better late than never. ;)

    I did take a chance on them also both RAPTURE and SWAMP WATER were very engrossing films. I was extremely pleased that Twilight took the time and energy to bring theses titles to us.

    If Anchor Bay still has an arrangement with Hammer, I wish they would do a Hammer Quatermass box with The Quatermass Xperiment, Enemy from Space and Five Million Years to Earth on it. Better yet, make it a Nigel Kneale/Hammer box and include The Abominable Snowman. I'd pay good money for that.

    That said, I'm glad First Men in the Moon is coming. It's more deserving of the blu-ray treatment than the rest of the films I mentioned.

    Twilight Time hinted very strongly today on Facebook that they will be releasing MISSISSIPPI BURNING.
