I hope Warner/Paramount reads the thread linked below as many HTF members are disturbed by this upcoming BD not having a presentation in 1.33:1 ratio which was the original OAR.

Why is the WB and Paramount logo both on the cover, that could confuse people to think that both studios made these movies.

 

Isn't that the same or close to it cover from The Centennial Collection for The Odd Couple?

I agree that having both logos on the packaging makes it confusing as to the studio that originally released it.

 

However, I suppose, it's simply Warner's way of putting their stamp on the product as home video distributor.

 

I suppose if you look at it as the top logo being the original release studio and the bottom logo being the distributor, then you'll be fine.

Better that both are included than Warner alone, which could just as easily have been the case.

True, but why WB of all people wanting to add more to their overload collection of titles. Paramount, not that bad off that it needs another studio to release it's titles. Paramount's logo should only be on the spine and WB should be on the back.

WB includes its logo on the spine of many movies they didn't originally release (notably the pre-1986 MGM titles) so I don't know if it'll really cause any more confusion than it already has.

As far as I can tell, Paramount simply doesn't want to be in the home video distribution business for catalog titles anymore (sans the exceptions of Spielberg, Indiana Jones, Transformers, etc.)


"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

Sounds like it, but Shout Factory would of been a better distributor. Olive Films has released a lot of Paramount titles, though they san on the special features.

Warner has many platforms they can use that Shout does not have, such as their MOD and streaming programs.

I wonder when we'll finally see that other George Stevens classic, A Place in the Sun, on Blu-ray?

That Shane cover gets my prize for most boring Blu-ray cover ever. (Sorry, Alan Ladd.)
