I was checking Import CDs today to see the list of upcoming Olive Blu-rays, and I discovered that the prices are going up. Titles which I bought a few months ago for $14.19 plus shipping are now $18.87 plus shipping. They aren't taking pre-orders for the April releases yet, but they have posted the prices - $23.06 plus shipping! That's a pretty hefty increase, particularly considering the slow shipping.

I maintain an extensive wishlist of CDs and DVDs on the Import CDs website and, sorry to say, I have noticed that many items on my wishlist have gone up in price this week, not just the Olive DVDs.  I will check them again later, as sometimes their prices go up and down.

Does this mean that Olive Films reconsidered their stance on the Republic serials or could they be cut-downs?

 

 

Well there are cut-downs on both of those serials (one a theatrical, the other one of the Century 66 TV-Film) so who knows. Although the information posted says serial.

I really they hope they consider releasing the Republic serials. There were so many of them that were released on Laserdisc. I would love to be able to get them on DVD or Blu-Ray.

The blu-ray listing is here

 

I had to use google to find it though.  It wouldn't turn up on the site search for some reason no matter what search parameter I used.

My key contact and good friend at Olive Films left his positions as the head of acquisitions and publicity, so I will no longer be posting updates for Olive Films.

Looks like we'll be waiting for news via the press releases rather than through Mr. Lime going forward. Thanks for all the advance info through the years.

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

Yes Mr. Lime, thank you and you will be missed. If Olive was smart they would pass along information to you to distribute. I have only heard of the releases from you so that is the only reason they got my dollars. They owe you a lot.

I'd also like to thank you Mister Lime.  You were really the only person resembling an Olive representative, even if your role was unofficial.

 

Hopefully someone else close to the company will emerge later on.  If not, as Brandon said earlier, press releases will be the only thing that will keep us posted in the future.

I hope Mr. Lime will still post on this board, if only to share discussions about current product from Olive.

Well that sure sucks :) 

This is one of my favorite threads here because it was the only place I knew of that had information on upcoming Olive Film titles. I hope someone else can pick up where Scott left off.. Olives Facebook page has been dead forever too... There must lots of behind the scenes stuff going on
