Dvd Empire is listing "Black Widow", "Dangerous Crossing" and "Daisy Kenyon' for a march release. And no mentioning of Boomerang.

Anyway, can't wait for these 3. Now Fox has finally announced most of the titles listed on their Fox classics "coming soon" web page (I think the only remaining titles are The Robe and The Day the earth stood still).

I'm becoming very curious to find out what titles are to follow (particularly antecipating the rumoured second volumes for Tyrone Power and Betty Grable collections).

YESSS!!!

Thank you Fox!

I'd like to see them start re-issuing their "War Classics"... especially those starring one of my favorite actors, Richard Widmark.

DAISY KENYON's really a "woman's picture," but a gratifying Preminger release anyway.

Marco, why reissuing war tiltes that are not out of print? I have a lot of them and I'm very pleased with their transfers.

I don't quite understand the classifying of Daisy Kenyon as a film noir. It's a melodrama not a film noir. It's too bad that Road House or Cry of the City wasn't released instead, but that doesn't mean I'm unhappy about Daisy Kenyon. It's just not a film noir.

Yeah...Dana Andrews is so damn dreamy Posted Image

One of the most underrated film noir leading men IMO. (not buying into the debate as to whether Daisy Kenyon constitutes being labeled film noir)

Cry of the City is a good film, directed by Robert Siodmak. It plays on the Fox Movie Channel a lot. I'm suprised it hasn't made the Fox Noir series yet. Maybe if they have another wave of noir releases; hopefully it won't be a year or more before we see more..

There's nothing to buy into, it's not a film noir. Anyhow, it's going to be release so at least another classic film will make it onto DVD.

Does anybody know if these releases are going to maintain the same theme (artwork and numbering) as the previous releases?

Just curious.

Black Widow? That's the one with Ginger Rogers and Gene Tierney, right? Interesting it should be listed as 'film noir', considering it's in color.....
Bring "The continuing story of PEYTON PLACE" home on DVD: the one that started it all- from Dallas and Dynasty to Desperate Housewives and Gossip Girl!!! Starting this May, see the legendary saga starring Mia Farrow, Ryan O'Neal, Barbara Parkins, and Oscar-winner Dorothy Malone on DVD thru...

I don't know why you're surprised given that they've already released "House of Bamboo" as part of the series.

I have no problem with a few color films -- "Niagra" and "Leave Her to Heaven" -- being classed as noir.

Nicholas Ray's 'Party Girl' is another color noir.

Hope that they complete all the Dana Andrews and Gene Tierney films on dvd: BELLE STARR and particularly THE IRON CURTAIN, a very provocative true story that bears many noirish qualities. Also would love to see Preminger's great THE THIRTEENTH LETTER out on dvd.

They will follow the same artwork & numbering according to the pictures of them on the insert in the Charlie Chan Vol 3 box set.

I haven't seen that insert. It sounds like it's a new line..or possibly in the vein of their Cinema Classics line.

NICE NEWS! can't wait, I really enjoyed all the noir Fox has released. I would relaly lie an official copy of Boomerang though. I thought they had the rights worked out on that one.

This news is great! I'm very happy this series isn't dead, and hope it continues after these releases.

Good to see the line coming back, though 2 of these selections are somewhat dubious choices. The reason why Cry of the City and Road House keeps getting passed over is beyond me.

BTW - Black Widow is not a noir either.
