Stranger On Horseback has long been readily available in the U.S. via VCI Entertainment.

Four Fast Guns and Stranger on Horseback are coming out a week earlier on Monday 10th October, as part of a boxset of three westerns, the other film in the set being Outlaw Women. The set's name is called Darn Good Westerns Set #1 (release date of Monday 10th October).   Another forthcoming Odeon Entertainment title (but not yet passed by the BBFC for DVD yet) is The Emperor Jones (1933). Release date of Monday 17th October.

I think considering a lot of VCI titles being released by Odeon, the transfers are going to be identical and Stranger on Horseback will use a BFI print.

Odeon's own website has a listing for Darn Good Westerns Set # 2 (Hellgate, Panhandle, Shotgun) for October 17

An Odeon rep has said in a Facebook post that they are currently looking at releasing 40 more RKO and Fox titles next year.

Shotgun (1955) was passed by the BBFC last Wednesday (31st August). That had a UK release date of Monday 24th October. Hellgate (1952) and Panhandle (1948) haven't been passed again by the BBFC yet. Darn Good Westerns #2 is available to pre-order on Amazon UK. There is now front cover artwork for the first Darn Good Westerns set on Amazon UK:

That's welcoming and promising about further RKO and Fox titles next year.

You'll find that Renown is listed as the studio for Darn Good Westerns #2 on the Amazon UK listing page, when it's available to pre-order on Odeon's website.

Two new titles being released by Odeon Entertainment in November (source: Amazon UK):     The Comeback (Digitally Remastered) (1978) - Monday 7th November (previously released on DVD in the UK by Anchor Bay Entertainment) Caught in the Act (1997) - Monday 7th November.   Also, the BBFC passed Odeon's DVD releases of The Emperor Jones, Hellgate and Panhandle on Tuesday, giving each title a 'PG' certificate. The release date for The Emperor Jones on it's new BBFC listing page is Monday 17th October (which is the same on it's Amazon UK listing page). The releases for Hellgate and Panhandle (Monday 24th October and Monday 17th October respectively) contradict the Monday 31st October release date on Amazon UK's listing page for Darn Good Westerns #2.

THE COMEBACK? As in the Pete Walker movie? Hmm. Would've preferred seeing FRIGHTMARE remastered first. Still, Walker is always a fun watch. Thanks for the head's up.

Double checked the BBFC earlier, when making the previous post, and yes it is the Pete Walker film. It hasn't been re-passed by the BBFC yet though.   Funny you mention Frightmare. That's a horror film I've been meaning to get on DVD.   EDIT: There is a listing page on Odeon's website for The Comeback.   Also, there's another Odeon DVD boxset coming soon. Released on Monday 17th October, the Best of British Classic Comedy boxset contains three films:   The Battle of the Sexes (1959) The Boy Who Stole a Million (1960) Ladies Who Do (1963).

I hope Second Chance with Robert Mitchum, Linda Darnell and Jack Palance is one of them. This movie is long overdue.

I'm hoping for "The French Line" with Jane Russell.

  If the Italian Sony disc of this movie is anything to go by then the elements are in a pretty poor state. Unless Odeon could source a better print it wouldn't be a great looking release.

From what I understand (though could be wrong), Odeon just licences whatever is out there already.

I'm very sorry to hear that. Most discouraging.
