Good to get some confirmation these won't be Amazon-only. Making them available through other retailers will probably help with the pricing.

Strange-- I thought the first wave consisted of 35 titles. Where did the other 20 go?? I'm especially interested in Always Goodbye, and it's disappeared... hopefully, for the moment.

I think the Classicflix list included releases from multiple waves. The others will likely be released on August.

Justin, oddly the press release omits some titles, but I pulled this from what the distributor sent to me today:

Are we going to see correct aspect ratios on the (few) 'Scope titles? Fox has notoriously released some P/S versions of movies in Europe (eg. THE ADVENTURES OF HAAJI BABA). Classicflix cites the aspect ratio on FRAULEIN, shot in CinemaScope, as 'Full Frame'. I hope this is an error. THREE BRAVE MEN is only shown FF on the Fox Movie Channel. I hope they don't simply re-use this master. Mike

I certainly hope that Fox's MOD endeavor will eventually release the three Debbie Reynolds' gems that have remained in their vaults for too long: Say One for Me, The Second Time Around, and Goodbye Charlie. I don't know how well the prints of Say One for Me and Second Time Around have held up over the years, but Twilight Time recently attempted to sell Goodbye Charlie through their Limited Edition Blu-Ray collection, and unfortunately, the film elements did not provide a decent enough print for release. Long story short, I hope that these three films, each showing Reynolds' flair for comedy, music, and drama, make their way to DVD, showing, once again, that Reynolds' has more to offer than a cute face and impish on-screen shenanigans :)

Only when they start to release some Best Picture nominees will I start to care...
I recently watched all 485 Best pictures (plus about 10 others films) in 365 days! www.oscarmovs.com

I have the Fox DVD of Second Time Around from Spain. Though in its original 2.35 CinemaScope ratio, it's not anamorphic. But the transfer itself is very nice so that should not be a problem.

What an eccentric attitude! No interest in movies unless they were nominated? Some of the best movies ever made were not nominated.

Hopefully they will get around to releasing The Brasher Doubloon. Eddie Muller recorded a commentary for it almost 3 years ago. Doug

  They don't always show correct OAR on the Fox Movie Channel either (The Best Things in Life Are Free has never seen shown in its Cinemascope ratio), so I'm not sure we'll see any improvement in this series. I hope so, but I'm skeptical.
