Hopefully Olive will release God´s Little Acre in both cuts (one of them unrated), as was done on the French DVD from Wild Side.

 

Yes, I'd be very interested to see both versions.

After the latest excellent blu-ray release of "Hello Dolly" by Fox , I would now like to see Olive release the original non musical version called

" THE MATCHMAKER"(58) which was shot in b&w Vista Vision by Paramount.

 

The film has a great cast including a much better suited Shirley Booth as Dolly.

Shirley MacLaine, Anthony Perkins, Paul Ford and Robert Morse are all terrific.

The dialogue is very similar to "Hello Dolly" , so much so that you keep expecting the cast to burst into song at any moment.(sadly they don't)

 

Paramount released an exceptional quality Laserdisc of the movie, so the source material for a blu-ray hopefully still exists.

 

Let's hope that Olive gives some consideration to this forgotten gem as it would be a great companion piece to share with "Hello Dolly" 

 

 

Doug.

The DVD release for The Matchmaker also looked very good as I recall.

I just watched the Matchmaker DVD last night, after having watched Hello, Dolly! last week.  The DVD is beautiful and a blu ray should look spectacular.

Gosh, that one slipped past me.

It's hard to believe that Paramount themselves actually released a wide screen version of The Matchmaker on DVD.

Most unlike Paramount to release a title that doesn't star Audrey Hepburn  ;-)

 

It appears to be discontinued now because Amazon's dealers are offering new copies from $44.50. (thanks but no thanks)

 

Maybe Paramount themselves will think Blu-ray.

On second thoughts no Audrey Hepburn so Olive might be our best and only bet.

 

In the meantime the old 4:3 matted Laserdisc will suffice.

It does have the isolated film score by Adolph Deutsch which is great to have.

 

Does the Paramount DVD contain the isolated score?

 

Doug.

If you can't wait for a Blu-ray release, VUDU and iTunes have The Matchmaker available for HD streaming, though it costs just as much as a Blu-ray.

Thanks Mark,

I'm not into streaming (as yet), so I guess I'll just have to wait and keep the laserdisc handy.

I was just wondering if they will have the UK cut of Breaking Glass as well as the USA one on the disc or whether licensing restrictions prevent this.

I love Flame Of Barbary Coast - "with the compliments of the house" - but I never did get around to buying it on DVD. I will definitely, but definitely buy this BRD.

One Touch Of Venus is not by any normal reckoning a good film. It has two major assets. Speak Low is a brilliant song and Franz Planer's photographing of Ava Gardner shows her to be one of the all-time great screen beauties. If this BRD comes from good elements, it will be worth buying just to ogle Ava in high definition.

Looking forward to what else in on the June slate.


"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
