The 300 Spartans (1962) 7/23/2013

Blood and Sand (1941) 7/09/2013

Bus Stop (1956) 7/30/2013

Love Me Tender (1956) 7/30/2013

Niagara (1953) 7/30/2013

 

Fox has been picking up quite a bit of slack in releasing deep catalog titles this year.  It's really quite something.

Today I checked Amazon and they have that multi-film Forever Marilyn Blu Ray Box for $26 & says a saving of 74%. I paid a lot more than that when it was a pre-order!!!! Does it pay to wait? Not always, I guess.

A good group of titles.  I think I will get them all.  Finally, another Elvis release for his fans.  Western/Civil War movie buffs might like Love Me Tender too. It has a good supporting cast, with Richard Egan doing a fine job and Debra Paget looking awesome.

"Bus Stop" for me.

It's always been near the top of my Marilyn favourites.

I have been very impressed by Fox's output of Classic titles this year, not just with the selections but the quality of the releases, Hello Dolly in particular looked amazing.  Hopefully some classic Sci-Fi/Horror releases like The Fly and Fantastic Voyage will make their way to Blu ray later this year.

Here's hoping Niagara hasn't been DNR'd like Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and retains the original Technicolor pallete. Fox Technicolor films always have color issues by default due to the infamous negative junking in 1978. Since this was shot in 1952-1953 on safety stock, we may have an OCN which would be great. I'm in for Bus Stop and Blood and Sand as well. Blood and Sand's OCN and all dye-transfer IB material have been lost, so here's hoping Fox has retained the original Technicolor palette as best they can. I'm not interested in 300 Spartans and will wait for reviews on Love Me Tender.

Put me down for "Bus Stop" and "Niagara".  Now all I need is "Let's Make Love" and "Prince and the Showgirl" and I'll be very happy.

We may just see the rest of Monroe's movies get released individually. The ones that were not released on DVD with the Diamond Collections will probably find their way to MOD.

Fox is the only studio that seems to be caring about its catalog this year, so major kudos to them as well as Schawn Belston and his team for the great preservation and restoration work they have done. Warner used to be a leader in catalog releases, but look at how hideous of a job they've been doing recently. Mr. Feltenstein, are you listening?

So please enlighten us about the hideous job Warner Is doing with their catalog releases?
