Is this going to be a slow year for catalog title?

OK I know the year is not over yet, but other than HELLO DOLLY---FUNNY GIRL---FEARLESS and THE GREAT ESCAPE I don't see much on the horizon that I want. I've almost given up on MGM. As Dick has well stated,there is a ton of titles that these studios are sitting on. Maybe the year will prove me wrong, [I hope so].

Is this going to be a slow year for catalog titles? No. Olive Films are making quite sure of that.

Every year the announcements are reduced in the first few months, and every year this question comes up.
"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

Seems like a decent year for vintage films to me, though its mostly thanks to Olive. MGM and Sony are off to a slow start, but Warners is pushing them out the door. Of course it depends on what you are looking for. I wish somebody would release more films from the silent era.
Forget it, Jake. It's Chinatown.

TCM Vault, Twilight Time, and Olive Films are doing a good job as far as pressed discs go.
