Netflix masters for these releases are different from the re-mastered Olive ones.

It was suppose to be day and date. But due to some contractual reasons, they had to release the DVD first and couldn't wait for the making-of doc. The 73 minute doc will be on the BLU release of the film. The film was fully restored and looked beautiful. I ONLY WANT YOU TO LOVE also included a making-of doc and that was released on DVD and I've heard that it will not be released on BLU-RAY. Here's the info on the DESPAIR doc: THE CINEMA AND ITS DOUBLE (2011) A feature-length making-of documentary directed by ROBERT FISCHER • NEW interviews with leading actress ANDREA FERREOL, screenwriter TOM STOPPARD, cinematographer MICHAEL BALLHAUS and other cast & crew • Archival interviews with director RAINER WERNER FASSBINDER 2011 | Color | 73 minutes | Not Rated | In English, German and French with English Subtitles

Back to the topic of Twilight's Last Gleaming...


Just for the heck of it I did an Amazon search hoping

that Olive films finally posted an early announcement.


What I found instead -- and I am uncertain if it has been

noted here before -- is a Portuguese version of the film

on DVD.


The audio is English.


I will include a link at the end of this post.


Seems to me quite odd that Olive films would nab the

rights to a film that they knew wasn't completely cleared

for release.  So, I am still holding out hope that a release

is indeed imminent.


However, the moment I lose hope I may actually consider

purchasing the Portuguese version of the film.  Unfortunately,

I don't see any reviews concerning the transfer quality but I

would think it looks better than the VHS tape I own.


Here is the link

All Ingmar Bergman fans [see my avatar?] are grateful for Face to Face (1976), but let's face it, the transfer looks like an analog laserdisc. Once Olive Films secured the USA distribution rights they could have done a better job on the transfer, or found a closer source.

Yikes!


Bob, thanks for catching that.


Guess we are at the mercy of Olive Films to get this out.

Re: TWILIGHT"S LAST GLEAMING That version on Amazon is a bootleg version. The film was not cleared for a portuguese release, Amazon should be ashamed of themselves for allowing crap like that to be sold on their site. Olive will be releasing a fully restored and uncut version of the film. The film's rights are cleared for USA and Canada. And it will be released on DVD and BLU-RAY. It should also include a MAKING-OF Documentary. This is part of the same package that includes DESPAIR, I ONLY WANT YOU TO LOVE ME, FEDORA, STATIONMASTER'S WIFE and DEAD PIGEON ON BEETHOVEN STREET.

They had no choice with this release. The material was acquired from CANAL+, the material from the US studio was in horrible shape. All of their other releases were re-mastered in HD, this was the only SD release. But I'm still happy to finally see this film released.

Paramount titles that are still have Olive listed as distributor that are not on DVD are Fear Is the Key (1972), Promise Her Anything (1965) and The Savage Innocents (1960)...

SAVAGE INNOCENTS will be released in 2012. PROMISE HER ANYTHING and FEAR IS THE KEY are off the schedule.

Judging from the print Netflix Instant has offered, THE SAVAGE INNOCENTS needs a lot of work.

Boris, just a suggestion... It wasn't necessary for you to quote the entire OP to make your comment. I think since you were the first person to respond, it was obvious to what and whom you were responding. Sorry but it's one of my pet peeves when someone quotes a very long post only to reply with a quick comment. Reading HTF on the mobile version via TapaTalk is very frustrating since they have yet to be able to separate a quoted post from a new one so it can be hard to navigate where one ends and the other begins. Anyway, I enjoy reading your posts, so this just a general rant and nothing personal.

Some great titles there. The Hangman, The Jayhawkers, No Man of Her Own, Run for Cover, The Savage and The Trap all immediately caught my eye. But there's plenty more I'd be interested in too. Fingers crossed!
