It was in the Palomar Pictures library they got from Bristol-Myers-Squibb, about the time they also released LAW AND DISORDER, THE STEPFORD WIVES, SLEUTH, and THE HEARTBREAK KID.

Timeless Media is releasing/re-releasing this on July 29, for $9.99. It can be preordered on Amazon.

Nice. A guilty pleasure of mine. Are we to assume TImeless has rights to the Palomar library?

Certainly hope so, and I hope all the Palomar pictures get reissued, especially 'Sleuth" and 'Law and Disorder", one of both Caroll O'Connor and Ernest Borgnine's greatest performances.

Brad here. This title is on my Favourite 70s Films wish list. This now begs the question , will we see "Aloha Bobby & Rose" on Blu-Ray?

Guess you were right. Just got a note on FB from Shout Factory. No Blu release is planned.

New disc indicates non-anamorphic transfer, groan.

I could see Shout doing a bare bones triple feature of 3 never released on DVD Palomar tiles- The Strange Vengeance of Rosalie, WhateverBecame of Jack and Jill? and To Kill a Clown. Only Clown received a vhs release.

 

Hard to tell who now owns the 1975 The Stepford Wives. Paramount owned it for a while. Otherwise this would be an ideal Shout Bluray for its 40th Anniversary.

 

I second Sleuth (on Blu) but would especially like The Heartbreak Kid and Law and Disorder. 

 

When Michael Calls is a fun thriller but would be better on their tv movie double feature label .

 

Ive never seen The Darwin Adventure-perhaps the most elusive of the Palomar titles
 

The rest are more MGM through the ABC label, which still would reside with Shout. 

 

Disappointed in Aloha which is not, as I assumed a Palomar film. Always watched this as an HBO junkie whenever it was on. Its soundtrack and cinematography deserved the Bluray treatment.
