Very pleased indeed about The Man From Laramie, one of my favorite films and one of the first DVDs I bought. The DVD is not especially good so if Grover Crisp and his team do their usual magic, the BRD will be a major upgrade. I'll pre-order. I won't take any chances!

Sorry, Luke, yes you are correct of course...I ended up chopping most of what I had wrote out of my post (including that he mentions Capra and Ford films as also underway) and so my post is really just a mess. My point was since he mentions On the Waterfront and Funny Girl and we know these are already on and coming to blu and elsewhere he mentions Major Dundee (also now about to come out on blu) that The Last Detail and Man from Laramie must be coming soon as well...from someone...

No worries, Reggie W...the important part is that there are TWO previously unavailable titles from Sony now coming to BD, thanks to the hard work of Mr Crisp and his crew. No criticism on my part was intended... :biggrin:

They are showing The Last Detail as Cannes this month which is good news.

So, everything in my original post has come out or is announced on blu-ray at this point except The Last Detail which I would hope is on the way as well. The are more films that I have read Mr. Crisp has prepared for release including:

So I wonder who will release the blu-rays for these two...

thought that Shampoo was headed to Criterion, Hal Ashby and all, what I am really surprised about is the fact that Tootsie has yet to be released

I have a newly-released Sony Germany region-free pressing of "Tootsie" purchased from Amazon's German website for US $22...the video transfer and lossless DTS-MA-HD 5.0-channel audio by Grover Crisp's technical team at Sony is sparklingly clear and gorgeous, and the DVD releases' extras have been ported over. You MAY want to get this while you're waiting to see if Criterion gets this licensed from them!!! :thumbsup:

Well, I had read rumors that Criterion was getting Hal Ashby's The Last Detail but if they are getting that as well as Shampoo I'd be thrilled with that.

So, this was the thread where I had brought up the stuff Mr. Crisp had mentioned he had underway or ready to go. All of these except the two Ashby films have hit blu-ray. So, Shampoo and The Last Detail must be coming soon...somewhere...

Plenty of meat for Criterion to get their teeth into there...

In total numbers, I believe Twilight Time is still ahead of Criterion in its licensing of Sony's recently remastered 4k titles. On the other hand, Criterion has a jones for Ashby, so that is more likely where Shampoo will land.

 

As for The Last Detail, it was among the first wave of Sony titles licensed by Mill Creek back in 2012. However, no word on it since...
