You haven't seen the quality of those releases yet.  I'll be buying my share of titles, but I'm not expecting anything that would be a reference quality BD release.

Blowing Wild and File of Thelma Jordon should be very soon - May or June.
Very good news. Very good news indeed . . . . . and exciting! That'll be two VHS tapes I can retire.

All of those will be later. Probably late Summer or Fall. Unless they run into some unforeseen issues.

"Come Next Spring" is also on Netflix streaming. The issue here is that the film has cropped to a 4:3 format which by 1956 should have been at least 1:85, 1:78, or 1:66. It would also be great to see the color restored and the print cleaned up.

I've seen enough of Olive's releases to not be overly worried.

"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

Mister Lime, or anyone who can answer, Any chance that Olive Films titles will be rentable from Netflix or Facets in the near future? Currently, it looks like only a few are available on each site. Thank you.

A lot of the transfers on Netflix are from older Republic video masters and not the transfers used by Olive. Private Hell 36, for example, looks like crap on Netflix compared to the Olive transfer.

JoHud, Thanks for responding. I'm wondering about renting the actual DVDs/Blu-rays from Netflix, not the "instant" films. I wish Netflix carried the actual discs, so I could check them out. So many great Olive releases and I just can't buy them all!

I watched the BRD of Innocent Bystanders last night. This disc is one of the best I've seen from Olive Films. No dirt, no marks, no scratches at all; very clean and clear images. As I said before: it's a pretty good film. Well worth watching if you like action thrillers that are not totally stupid.

Andre de Toth's RAMROD (1947)? November 20th? Wonderful news. It's a significant western, an important western, and a genuine, authentic noir. You'll know it's written by Luke Short when you hear the first line of dialogue. Be sure to give it a full review. I can finally throw away my Republic VHS.
I watched the Ramrod BRD today. You can definitely throw away your VHS tape. This is a good BRD. The elements are less than perfect but the mastering/encoding is beyond criticism. The images are razor sharp.

By the way . I watched Innocent Bystanders with Stanley Baker . I really enjoyed it . I thought Baker was really good as the tired worn out agent . And not a bad ending for an early 70s film either . Blu ray looked pretty good too .
