Is anyone else disappointed that Olive chose not to use the 5.1 remix that was done for the Paramount DVD on McLintock!? Granted the movie was originally in mono, but I wonder why it was left off. Perhaps the licensing agreement didn't grant them access to the remixed soundtrack?

Mister Lime,

 

Does Olive Films have any plans to release any Republic serial on DVD or blu ray in the

 

future? Wouldn't "Adventures of Captain Marvel" having been released on DVD by

 

Artisan warrant Olive Films making it commercially available again and perhaps finally

 

releasing in the picture and sound quality it has long deserved?

 

Thank you,

 

Michael Sloan

I like the covers for The File On Thelma Jordan and Blowing Wild but in both cases they don't give a true impression of the film! I'm pre-ordering both.

Some good titles for May including some DVD debuts and a steady supply of more John Wayne.  Keep it up, Olive!

 

That's the first placeholder art I've seen for an Olive title in regards to "Father Goose."  Threw me for a sec.

Yup, very disappointed in that...

I'm not. Re-mixing a mono film into stereo is as bad as colorizing a B&W film in my opinion. I'm just glad the Paramount DVD offered the original mono as well as the "stereo" mix otherwise I'd be upgrading to the Olive release for the original mono sound.

DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS, huh? Hope that's accurate, as I'd love to see the restoration finally.

The shipping delays were caused by a huge fulfillment center mistake. Everything was ready to go in time for the 3/26 street date, but all these orders were missed by the shipping center and they realized their mistake after the titles had already streeted. They shipped everything last week (a couple of days after the street date), so everything should be up very soon. This was not because of replication delays, it was just a HUGE shipping or non-shipping error.

MisterLime, any chance of Olive licensing Sleuth (orig.) and The Heartbreak Kid from Palomar Pictures?

I hope Olive can work something out with Ignite and the other owner of TRIFFIDS for a release soon.

I just got McLintock! and the most interesting thing about the release is that it is given co-distributor credit to Ignite Films with no Paramount or Batjac logo in sight. 

 

Doing a bit more research on Ignite reveals that they also have done restoration work on the films in the Enterprise library, which is also among the Republic holdings that Olive has been releasing as well as some PD films and select copyrighted Otto Preminger films.  They may have been responsible for the materials for some of the Enterprise produced films Olive released such as Macbeth, The Secret Behind the Door and Letter to an Unknown Woman, most of which are advertised as available in HD.

 

I looked at what Ignite Films has available in terms of movies they advertise as "available in High Definition restored version" that haven't been made available on home video yet and I came up with the following.  Note that some have home video rights outside of Ignite and Olive (i.e. the 2 Preminger films):

 

PATTERNS (1956) FOUR FACES WEST (1948) THE PRIVATE AFFAIRS OF BEL AMI (1947) FIVE SAVAGE MEN (1971) SAINT JOAN (1957) MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM (1955) PANCHO VILLA (1972) PSYCHOMANIA (1971) SECOND CHORUS (1940) THE DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS (1962)

BLOODY BIRTHDAY (1981)

CRUCIBLE OF TERROR (1971)

 

Checking Ignite Films' currently available films is a bit of a pain since they only randomly show one title on their "Film Library" page each time it's loaded and only on that page do they mention if the film is available in High Definition.  Because of this there may be some I missed.  Curiously, I saw no mention of McLlintock! on their website.

 

Because of this new McLlintock scenario, I'm wondering if Olive will be doing more cooperation with Ignite films with PD titles outside of the Republic library and bring out some of these or other titles to home video through the Olive Films label.  It doesn't look like the website is updated regularly, so there may be more titles given HD treatment.

Does that mean we will be getting Day of the Triffids and those other horror titles from Olive ?

Is the restoration of TRIFFIDS done, or still in progress? Last I heard I thought I was still being worked on.
