MisterLime -- the press kit for Fedora has interesting info about the dubbing of Fedora´s (Marthe Keller) and the Countess´s (Hildegard Knef) dialogue. Inga Bunsch dubbed the English version, Marthe Keller the French and Hildegard Knef the German version. Seems Bunsch dubbed both Keller and Knef in English -- but the wording is unclear.

 

Any chance of multiple soundtracks for the Olive Films release?

Answering a few of the questions above...

 

THREE RING CIRCUS will not be released by Olive Films.

 

Only one version of SHARK exists. The extra scenes were probably destroyed by the film's producers in the 60s.

 

FEDORA will be released later this year with the 1 hour Making-of doc - The audio will be the same audio as the Warner Brothers version released in the 70s

 

I don't know why the HANGAR 18 audio commentary was dropped.

Thanks, Mister Lime.  Personally, I would love to see a blu release of Olive's Bob Hope releases (My Favorite Spy and Off Limits).

Do you know if both cuts of God´s Little Acre will be released? One is longer an unrated. A French company, Wild Side, released both cuts on their DVD.

TCM shows it in a very good looking widescreen transfer. There must be a good master floating out there.

Answering a few questions...

 

The Bob Hope films will be released on BLU-RAY very soon. Also, everything else from the Paramount library will be released on BLU-RAY very soon, with the exception of FACE TO FACE which only has a standard def master acquired from Studio Canal - by far the best elements available anywhere.

 

They will also release, ICI ET AILLEUR, NUMERO DEUX and POLICE on BLU-RAY.

 

All the other titles are on the schedule and should be coming out as soon as they're ready. GOD'S LITTLE ACRE should be in July.

Olive Films is truly doing a great job with the Republic and Paramount catalog. Any chance that they can strike another deal once the rest of the films are released so that they can acquire more content?

Too bad about Face to Face, but overall that's fantastic news!


"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

IIRC, the issue here is music rights. I don't know if any of Paramount's catalog distributors (Warner, Olive, Criterion) would be able to resolve this.

Please be attentive to releasing films in the correct aspect ratio.

 

Paramount changed to 100% widescreen cinematography on March 24, 1953. Initially composing for 1.66:1, they changed to 1.85:1 on September 21, 1953.

 

Republic switched to 1.66:1 on May 15, 1953.

 

Please note: these are production dates, not release dates.

 

I can answer any questions on the correct ratio and will be glad to assist.

Also, don't forget titles like The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell which wasn't a Republic or Paramount title originally.  It's production company was United States Pictures and was distributed by Warner.  It was filmed during the summer of 1955, and should be widescreen, I thought it was a cinemascope film with the awful WarnerColor process.

Any chance for Fassbinder's I Only Want You to Love Me being upgraded to blu-ray as well? Maybe along The Stationmaster's Wife release?
