Who has the distro rights; is it a Republic or UA film?
There's too many UA gems that need to be released, including:
A Thousand Clowns
Day Of The Outlaw
The Killer Is Loose
The Black Sleep
I guess these are all M-G-M properties now?
If so, I wish they would release several dual-layered sets, similar to Universal's economical Classic Western Round-Ups, with their long neglected b-movies like Riot In Juvenile Prison and a poverty row noir themed set with crime thrillers like Cop Hater, The Big Caper, Before I Wake, Guns Girls and Gangsters, etc. Finally a matinee western collection with oaters like Fury At Showdown, The Crooked Sky, My Gun Is Quick, Fort Massacre, Gun Fever, War Drums, The Lawless Rider, etc.
They could dump these out with one single two-disc genre set for each and keep it barebones and simple. I wouldn't even be too picky about the transfers so long as they're competent. The above list however, deserves individual catalog releases for the titles laid out.
I fear that with MGM's current financial state, we may never see these films on any home video format.
Day of the Outlaw is available on DVD since last year.
Woops, you're right!
(I actually own it too)
My Gun Is Quick is a Mike Hammer mystery (which has gotten some airtime on Encore Mystery in the past year or so).
Pitfall was released on VHS in the "Republic Restored Classics" line. Are there p.d. versions out there too?
I've seen the generic Alpha looking collection with Pitfall and the usual DOA, etc. titles. There's one showing on Amazon as discontinued.
I used to own the Republic VHS and ditched it at the height of the studios dumping their classic noirs on disc assuming this would definitely be available. I can't believe we're reaching the end of the line and still nothing... I hope Eddie Muller tries to save this one and convinces whoever owns it to get it out on disc soon.
