TV GONE WEST
SUGARFOOT: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (1958-59) Saddle up for another shot of sarsaparilla alongside the wild west's coolest counselor-by-correspondence, “Sugarfoot” Tom Brewster (Will Hutchins). Tom continues to wander the west while pursuing his law degree by mail, always ready to outwit first and resort to violence last in this 5-Disc, 20-Episode collection. The gripping season opener, ‘Ring of Sand,” sees Tom going round in circles in an arid wasteland as he desperately tries to save a grieving father (Will Wright) from his suicidal quest for vengeance. He later tests his mettle against foes like his evil, identical cousin “The Canary Kid“ (Will Hutchins) which guest stars Wayde Preston as Colt .45’s Christopher Colt! Tom also aids friends valiant and true, including a caped, crusading Polish pianist played by Adam West! Other notable guests include 77 Sunset Strip’s Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. and Ed “Kookie’ Byrnes, Jay North, Tommy Rettig, Martin Landau, John Carradine, Don “Red’ Barry, Dorothy Provine and Virginia Gregg. Note: Initial quantities of this release will be traditionally replicated (pressed) in anticipation of high consumer demand.

ALICE: THE COMPETE FOURTH SEASON (1979-80) Farewell, Flo — and hello Belle! Alice’s fourth season saw some big changes coming to Mel’s Diner. Polly Holliday’s Flo proved to be such an irresistible spin-off lure, midway through the season she heads off to Flo's Yellow Rose. In a serendipitous twist, Flo’s fill in turns out to be no less a talent than the original Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore’s Flo, Diane Ladd! Ladd plays Belle, a former employee and flame of Mel’s, who considers herself something of a country-western warbler — look out, Alice! This season the show puts celebrities playing themselves on the menu, including Art Carney (who turns out to be Vera’s cousin), both Telly and George Savalas make a pit stop and Dinah Shore even hosts Mel — and his chili — on her talk show! Memorable guests NOT playing themselves include the great Eve Arden as a local talk host and Martha Raye as Mel’s overbearing mother. 3-Disc, 26 Episode Collection. Note: Initial quantities of this release will be traditionally replicated (pressed) in anticipation of high consumer demand.
ALICE: THE COMPETE FOURTH SEASON
Paramount Playhouse - Back in Print
THE ROSE TATTOO (1955) Tennessee Williams reportedly tailored the part of Serafina Delle Rose for Italian actress Anna Magnani (Rome, Open City) but Magnani did not feel her command of English was sufficient to the demands of William’s prosodic dialogue on stage. Thankfully, when the play came to be adapted for film four years later, that was no longer the case and Magnani astonishes. Serafina is a widowed recluse, clashing with her amorous age teenage daughter (Marisa Pavan) when her world is upended by the seemingly cloddish truck driver played by a beaming Burt Lancaster. Daniel Mann directs under producer Hal Wallis, with legendary lensman James Wong Howe framing the action. 16x9 Widescreen

THE MATCHMAKER (1958) Thornton Wilder’s classic comedy about love and errant clerks — which would later become the musical, Hello Dolly! — comes to the big screen courtesy of director Joseph Anthony and writer John Michael Hayes (Winter Kill). Yonkers matchless matchmaker Dolly Levi (Shirley Booth) sets her sights on miserly department store magnate Horace Vandergelder (Paul Ford) who already has intentions towards the lovely lady milliner Irene Molloy (Shirley MacLaine). It’s a good thing for Dolly that Vandergelder’s overworked clerks Cornelius Hackl (Anthony Perkins) and Barnaby Tucker (Broadway cast transplant Robert Morse) decide to play hooky and monkey wrench the works. 16x9 Widescreen

THIS PROPERTY IS CONDEMNED (1966) Sydney Pollack directs this cinematic expansion of Tennessee Williams’ devastating one act play, with a young Francis Ford Coppola making script contributions. A waif dressed in rags (To Kill a Mockingbird’s Mary Badham) tells a tale of woe to a young boy (Jon Provost) outside a condemned boarding house. It’s the story of her sister Alva Starr (Natalie Wood), the town’s main attraction at the too-young age of sixteen and Owen Legate (Robert Redford), the railroad man sent to shut the town down. In a storm of passions and cheap experiences, the chance of reclaimed innocence flickers. But can love truly triumph over knowledge? A superb cast fills out the passion play, including Charles Bronson, Kate Reid, Dabney Coleman and Robert Blake. 16x9 Widescreen
THIS PROPERTY IS CONDEMNED
FIRST MONDAY IN OCTOBER (1981) Master craftsmen Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee (Inherit the Wind) presciently presented a play about the first woman justice on the Supreme Court — a conservative! — in 1977. By the time Ronald Neame directed the film adaptation, life imitated art in a very big way when Ronald Reagan (Voice of the Turtle) nominated Sandra Day O’Connor to the bench on July 7, 1981. Jill Clayburgh plays the conservative Judge Loomis, while Walter Matthau plays her left-leaning foil, Judge Snow, in full amiable curmudgeon mode. Barnard Hughes plays the Chief Justice charged with keeping his fractious court in balance as they take on standards of indecency, pornography and free speech. 16x9 Widescreen

SHIRLEY VALENTINE (1989) Willy Russell's one woman show Shirley Valentine, the tale of a lower middle class Liverpudlian lass' middle aged sexual re-awakening, was a smash stage hit with Pauline Collins in the role. Lewis Gilbert wisely retained her services for this cinematic treatment that opens the story up while still retaining its dramaturgical charms. Tom Conti is a delight as an aging Greek Casanova, lampooning his own considerable screen smolder reputation. Shirley Valentine took world cinema by storm upon its initial release, and still strikes a moving, quirky chord decades later. 16x9 Widescreen
HBO Never Forgets
AN APOLOGY TO ELEPHANTS (2013) Elephants, majestic and intelligent, have suffered under the hands of humans for hundreds of years. They’re poached for their tusks, chained in captivity and their natural habitats destroyed. Narrated and executive produced by Lily Tomlin and directed and produced by Amy Schatz, An Apology to Elephants is an HBO family documentary that illustrates how elephants live in the wild — from their matriarchal structure to their truly impressive memories — and examines the problems and issues that arise when they are brought to live in captivity in zoos and circuses.

I don't want to completely derail this thread, but since the accusation of sloppy research was thrown around.

 

http://en.wikipedia....en_Film_Company

 

Geffen Pictures isn't even in operation anymore. Warner Bros. owns everything they produced outright except for Beavis and Butt-Head Do America (which is obviously Paramount's).

Even if it makes me wrong, i applaud you actually backing up something you said. Since the last article you posted did nothing but prove they were distributor. Now that we have a definitive answer, so yes WB licensed it out to Shout Factory. Case closed and some of us were mistaken.

 

However i'm still not in any way pro to them doing more. While Beetlejuice is a little more rewarding to know they actually put out the whole thing. Sinch the only tv show i've wanted to collect that shout factory has distribution of more than likely won't ever be completed due to their inability/reluctance/laziness to pay music rights. I'm sure to some it may seem like a "better" option, but i don't really see any problem with WA's schedule. I'd rather WA work slowly and get their entire library out and get it right, over a third party get involved where if it gets screwed up, it's going to remain screwed up for however long the license remains.

 

However as i said back on this subject, Maybe my opinion will change as i purchase more things from them.


Blanket Quote for myself for all my postings from Feb 2014 and on

"i'm not shy to mention that i seem to be a major outlier on this forum. But i'm still highly boggled by some things posted here. But hey i can only be so critical but some things do bother me a bit, but to each their own. Even if it's odd conspiracies, not wanting to use terms correctly or just throwing hasty generalizations."

If the horse doesn't want to drink, i'm not going to lead them to water

Young Man of Steel
THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERBOY: THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON (1991-92) Joining series star (and now full Producer) Gerard Christopher were comic scribes Andy Helfer, Mike Carlin, and J.M. Dematteis as well as future Justice League animated mainstay Stan Berkowitz who all helped The Adventures of Superboy sail above any syndicated show limits thanks to their ample imaginations and affection for the source material. This 3-Disc, 22-Episode complete series collection sees young Clark Kent/Kal-El ready to break the bonds of boyhood and emerge as the legendary Man of Steel while battling and befriending classic four color foes like Lex Luthor (Sherman Howard, Batman Beyond), Metallo (Michael Callan, Mysterious Island) and Bizarro (Barry Meyers aka Douglas B. Meyers, Mr. Silver the Robotic Performer), as well as TV originals Chaos (Paul McCrane, Robocop), Adrian Temple (Roddy Piper, They Live) and Tommy Puck (Billy Mumy, Babylon 5). It all leads up to a one-two punch season finale, “Rites of Passage” that sees Superboy return to Smallville to begin his final steps into Supermanhood. Note: Initial quantities of this release will be traditionally replicated (pressed) in anticipation of high consumer demand.

Middle-Aged Man of No Fear - on Blu-Ray!
FEARLESS (1993) Peter Weir directs this visionary tale of ordinary folk transformed by extraordinary events to tragic and transcendent ends. Jeff Bridges delivers one of his most unforgettable performances as Max, an architect who survives a horrific plane crash unscathed. But Max’s family might not be so lucky, as the experience has left the now shamanistic survivor seemingly beyond the reach of his wife (a deeply anchored Isabella Rossellini) and son (Spencer Vrooman). Rosie Perez plays “the other woman” Carla, whose overwhelming grief may prove to be the panacea for both her and Max. Finally presented in its correct wide screen aspect ratio, Weir and cinematographer Allen Daviau’s vision comes to breathtaking Blu-ray from a sparkling new master. Also stars Tom Hulce, John Turturro, Benicio Del Toro, and John De Lancie. Adapted for the screen by Rafael Yglesias from his own novel. 16x9 Widescreen 1080p HD, DTS-HD Audio, Blu-ray Disc
LEE TRACY: Blarney Man of Ballyhoo
THE HALF NAKED TRUTH (1932) Pre-Code cinema fast-talker Lee Tracy helps give birth to a new queen comedienne when he teams up with “The Hot Pepper” Lupe Velez and director Gregory La Cava in this Big top-cum-Great-White-Way ballyhoo. Tracy and Velez play a carnie pitchman and hoochie-coochie girl who take their act off the road to make big rubes out of the seen-it-all citizens of the Big Apple. Eugene Pallette co-stars as their circus strongman pal strong-armed into playing a “Turkish” bodyguard (and “Turkish” is code for a specific type of harem guardian, if you know what we mean) for Velez’s faux fugitive queen. Nothing fails quite like success and the perfect pair of pitchers have a falling out, thanks to a wannabe lothario (Frank Morgan). And this, of course, means war…
THE HALF NAKED TRUTH
THE NUISANCE (1933) Lee Tracy is sublimely in his element as an in-it-to-win-it shyster bleeding the “soulless corporation” running his city’s streetcars in this pitch perfect cynical crusader flick. Unfortunately for the gentry of this fine city, Tracy’s J. Phineas Stevens, Esq. who has the moral edge (albeit a thin one) over the corrupt public utility corp. Creating the quandary is lay private detective Madge Evans, sent undercover and under the sheets to get the goods on Stevens. Frank Morgan plays Stevens’ secret weapon, a dyspeptic dipsomaniac doc who knows how to doctor an X-ray, while Charles Butterworth plays an archetypical example of the now-vanished art of flop men, who throw themselves under cars for a quick payoff (no foolin’!). Directed by Jack Conway.
TURN BACK THE CLOCK (1933) This landmark comedic fantasy directed by Edgar Selwyn and co-written by Selwyn and the great Ben Hecht stars Lee Tracy as the time-tossed middle-aged everyman Joe Gimlet. NYC tobacconist and WWI vet Joe is struck in a rut, married to his high school sweetheart Mary (the always pleasing Mae Clarke) when a chance encounter with his hometown pal-made-good Ted Wright (a charming Otto Kruger) causes Joe to doubt his life’s choices. A horrible accident sends Joe plunging down the depths of his own past and finds himself back in the innocent days of 1910, armed with the memories of 1932. This time around Joe ain’t gonna be a sap, he’s gonna go for the dough, see? He sets Mary aside and makes a play for the one he let away, the wealthy Elvina (Peggy Shannon), and formerly future Mrs. Ted Wright. As Joe changes the present to avoid his future, Joe and Ted trade lives in bittersweet fashion as they discover middle-aged regret is a class-less affair. As an extra bonus — look for a cameo by the now Ted Healy-free Three Stooges as a trio of wedding singers!
HBO ON THE HUNT
MANHUNT (2013) The May 1, 2011 raid on Abbottabad, Pakistan that culminated in the killing of Osama bin Laden took 40 minutes, but the CIA’s hunt for bin Laden took two decades. Manhunt tells the remarkable true story of this nearly 20-year pursuit of the world’s most notorious terrorist. Directed by Greg Barker and based on the book Manhunt: The Ten-Year Search for Bin Laden — from 9/11 to Abbottabad by Peter Bergen, this documentary feature is a real-life spy thriller that reveals behind-the-scenes accounts from CIA analysts, targeters and operatives who testify to the disagreements, frustrations, tragedies and triumphs that make up this fascinating yet painful chapter in American military and political history.

Brave, Bold and Now on Blu-ray!
BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD — THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (2008-09) Bat-mite (voiced by Paul Reubens) put it best: “Batman’s rich history allows him to be interpreted in a multitude of ways. To be sure, this is a lighter incarnation, but it’s certainly no less valid and true to the character’s roots than the tortured avenger crying out for mommy and daddy. AND BESIDES, THOSE EASTER BUNNIES LOOK REALLY SCARY, RIGHT?!” Under the aegis of producer James Tucker, B:TBATB bravely challenged modern fan conceptions of The Dark Knight while boldly exploiting the richness of the entire DC Comics universe. The result is a sly and skillful blend of Dick Sprang’s Batman, TV’s timeless 1966 incarnation, Bruce Timm’s animated series and scores of others which creates a unique show that appeals to fans both new and old. Lead voice actor Diedrich Bader (The Drew Carey Show) uses his crack comic skills to channel Kevin Conroy’s Caped Crusader making his Bats the ultimate straight man in the world’s funnest cape cartoon. And he’s aided by a legion of vocal acting titans (and directed by legendary voice director Andrea Romano) that includes John DiMaggio (Aquaman), James Arnold Taylor (Green Arrow), Will Friedle (Blue Beetle), Tom Kenny (Plastic Man), Grey DeLisle (Black Canary) and Neil Patrick Harris (The Music Meister). This 2-Disc, 26-Episode Blu-ray Disc Collection presents B:TBATB’s inaugural season in all its crisp and clear 1080p High Definition, as it was meant to be enjoyed. A galaxy of Bat-tastic team-ups await as they face any peril — including other heroes OUTRAGEOUSLY stealing the show — in their relentless pursuit of justice. And fun. And really scary Easter Bunnies.
Kissing of the Grits
FLO: THE COMPLETE SERIES (1980-81) Polly Holliday’s character Flo's ever-burgeoning popularity proved irresistible spin-off allure, and the sassy Texas belle was lured out of the confines of Alice’s Mel’s Diner and set-up shop in her own show and roadhouse, Flo’s Yellow Rose. After an Alice-like car breakdown, Flo ends up in her infamous hometown of Cowtown, TX where, thanks to the desperate wiles of local banker Farley Waters (Jim Baker), Flo buys the local rundown roadhouse. Now she just has to talk the he-man cowboy bartender (Geoffrey Lewis) into letting a woman be his boss… Also stars Sudie Bond as Flo’s raucous Mama, Lucy Lee Flippin as Flo’s prim sister Fran, Joyce Bulifant as waitress/BFF Miriam, Leo Burmester as madcap mechanic Randy and Stephen Mills as laconic ivory-tickler Les. Flo: The Complete Series features all 29 episodes from its two-season run plus a bar full of guests including James Cromwell, Robert Englund, Forrest Tucker, Joanna Cassidy, Hoyt Axton and Alice’s Vic Tayback as Mel. Note: Initial quantities of this release will be traditionally replicated (pressed) in anticipation of high consumer demand.
FLO: THE COMPLETE SERIES (1980-1981)
Showtime on TNT
NEVER FORGET (1991) Leonard Nimoy and Blythe Danner star in this telefilm inspired by the life of Mel Mermelstein, the man who in the face of manipulations and machinations by the historical revisionism of professional hate groups, caused the US courts to recognize the holocaust as uncontestable fact. After the horrors of Nazi occupation, Hungarian born Auschwitz survivor Mermelstein finds a new life and new family in the new world, but strives to keep the memory of the family he lost alive by educating a new generation to the truths of Nazi depredations. When the Institute for Historical Review issues a hectoring challenge to Mel Mermelstein to prove the holocaust happened in a court of their making, Mel defiantly teams up with local lawdog Bill Cox (Dabney Coleman) to teach the Institute a lesson in truth. One of Nimoy’s finest performances in a career littered with them.
CRAZY IN LOVE (1992) Holly Hunter, Gena Rowlands, Frances McDormand and Bill Pullman star in this adaptation of Luanne Rice’s novel about a family of women living on an island in the Puget Sound. Georgie (Hunter), the youngest of the women, is head over heels for businessman hubby Nick (Pullman), but the dangers of commuting by puddle-jumper plane start to unravel their domestic stability. Then, as Georgie’s insecurities mount, a dashing photog (Julian Sands) enters the picture. Hunter and Pullman are the focus, but the quiet truths of Rowlands and McDormand are the show.
A LIFE IN THE THEATRE (1993) Playwright David Mamet and frequent collaborator director Gregory Mosher re-team to adapt their stage wonder, A Life in the Theatre, for the small screen starring a pair of true stage and screen superstars, Jack Lemmon and Matthew Broderick. This two-man show focuses on the backstage ramblings of a pair of repertory actors — one an aging vet, the other a rising (wannabe) star — across seasons and shows as the pair wrestle with their craft and each other. Lemmon and Broderick are masterful as they each, in turn, subsume their gifts to inhabit the shoes of the showmen who stand in the shadows.
THE HEIDI CHRONICLES (1995) Wendy Wasserstein’s blockbuster stage chronicle of the baby boomer generation’s slow rise to self-knowledge as seen through the lens of a young, independent woman stars Jamie Lee Curtis. Art student Heidi Holland navigates the choppy waters of a culture in flux, from sock hops and student protests in the Sixties to the sexual revolutions of the Seventies and the cynicism and tragedies of the Me-decade Eighties. Tom Hulce delivers an outstanding (and award winning performance) as Heidi’s pal Peter Patrone. Also stars Peter Friedman and Kim Cattrall.
THE HEIDI CHRONICLES (1995)
DEADLOCKED (2000) Charles S. Dutton and David Caruso star in this crackerjack suspense thriller that mixes courtroom drama, hostage crisis and murder mystery to brew up a powerful stew that takes aim at racial inequality in America while simultaneously examining personal responsibility and family obligations. When correction officer Jacob Doyle’s (Dutton) estranged son is convicted of murder in the first, Doyle snaps and takes the jury hostage inside their own courtroom. Doyle then tasks the DA (Caruso) that just convicted his son with proving his innocence — in 24 hours, or the jury starts to die.
HBO is Here to Help
THE WEIGHT OF THE NATION FOR KIDS (2012) This three part series take aim at childhood obesity through a series of short films designed to empower and educate young people on how to battle this rising epidemic. “The Great Cafeteria Takeover” follows a group of New Orleans kids, who dubbed themselves the Rethinkers, as they make a difference in their community by transforming their school lunch menu with healthier, better-tasting options. “Kebreeya’s Salad Days” follows 17-year-old Kebreeya’s crusade to improve nutrition awareness on a personal, family and community level in her North Carolina town by maintaining a garden at an elementary school and encouraging others to do the same via the student group SWARM (Students Working for an Agricultural Revolutionary Movement). “Quiz Ed!” tests the nutrition and physical activity knowledge of students of varying ages and activity levels to inspire them to choose foods with less sugar and not skip meals. Directed and Produced by Shari Cookson & Nick Doob.

Well, this announcement will surely satisfy that one lunatic in the world who was clamoring for a release of "Flo".

 

Hopefully Warner will celebrate Noir-vember with some new disc announcements and not just tweets about their streaming titles.

Great price on the 4 Goldwyn titles.

I have them all on Laserdisc but hopefully these will be a quality up-grade.

 

Looks like a double dip for me.

I noticed the WAC listings for these Danny Kaye films all contain this message:

 

***Initial quantities of this release will be traditionally replicated (pressed) in anticipation of high consumer demand.***

Either put The Court Jester out on Blu-ray or don't bother. Re-pressing the DVD is of no use to me.  :(

The Danny Kaye Goldwyn set is a no brainer! I already have A Song Is Born on DVD but the other three are highly anticipated. That they are pressed is a nice bonus, too.

Since its been out of print for awhile and goes for a fortune on e-bay people who don't have the title yet will appreciate it. Thats the whole point of their Paramount releases is to put titles back in print that are out of print.

Thank you! I find it a wee bit presumptuous for others to declare put it on blu or don't bother! Realllly! There are other people in the universe besides the blu club. It's not all about you! A simple "I wish they had put it on blu" would have been sufficient.

Having materials good enough to remaster for DVD is one thing. Having good enough materials to master for Blu-ray is a whole other matter. I appreciate the emotion and passion behind the "Blu-ray or GTFO" attitude, but it is shortsighted and terribly disrespectful of the people working insanely hard to accomplish what is truly God's Work, whether you believe in a deity of any sort.

 

I'm thrilled every time they reissue something on DVD that chops the legs out from under eBay and Amazon scalpers, even if it's something I budgetary decide to wait on until it theoretically hits Blu-ray.

Up in Arms and The Kid From Brooklyn on DVD....  Finally!  Transfers of A Kid From Brooklyn that I had come across in the past were all horrid, and Up In Arms never even got a DVD release overseas.

 

Also, the decision to put The Court Jester in the WAC is a pretty clear sign that Paramount is not interested in getting that one out on DVD.  So it's really the WAC or nothing.  At least in the near future.  Sad and disappointing, but that's apparently how it is.

 

Also, Wonder Man and A Song is Born go for absolutely insane used prices, so their inclusion here at a sane price is extremely welcome (even though I already have them).  A shame because the HBO Video edition of Wonder Man looked drop dead gorgeous.

Maybe the four reaming Goldwyn Eddie Cantor titles will get a similar one set release.
