Thank goodness for Anne V. Coates. In the wrong hands we might have had Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

There most certainly is a sense of loss.  But I'm encouraged by the new digital medium in this one respect.  I'm finding more and more theaters are able to show classic films since they can be delivered digitally.  I'm now able to see my favorite films in a lot more theaters instead of hoping they will appear at my local art house.  Yes, there is a loss for those of us who grew up on film and really appreciate its aesthetic quality.  But knowing that people younger than me can still be exposed to great cinema at their local theater is very comforting.

 

If they can get it right. Saw Meet Me in St. Louis stretched to 1.85:1 at Shubert theatre in New Haven, CT. There were only 30 people in the audience, and the Shubert was never a movie theatre so, no big deal. It was holiday party for subscribers but a snow storm reduced the attendance.

A (slightly) *different* memory of Peter O'Toole.

Very interesting, but not in the least unexpected.

It doesn't say when this new master was created. I played It Happened One Night on DCP last Valentines Day and the credits were windowboxed. That had to have been the older version, right?

I can't imagine they'd prepare a windowboxed version meant for 4K TVs.

Looking at the 60ies and earlier titles on the 4k unlimited service Sony has some great titles available:

It happened one Night
On the Waterfront
The Bridge on the River Kwai
The Guns of Navarone

and of course

Lawrence of Arabia

Oh my.  Exceptional.  

 

I know one should always leave 'em wanting more.  But what this left me wanting was the ability (after taking in the whole thing, of course) to stay on one of those shots at a time...say, looking across the city from the Griffith Observatory...and watch and marvel at just that one view of the lights and movement for a while.

There is another "Griffith Park" photograph(s) that has been getting a lot of publicity recently - the shot of the wild cougar who now lives in Griffith Park juxtaposed against a backdrop of those same city lights.

Can't tell if she killed it or if that's just fortuitous roadkill.

The deer may have been struck down by a 1932 Brough Superior SS100 Motorcycle traveling at excessive speeds.

 

Was a pair of goggles found nearby? :biggrin:
