Anchor Bay is going to release "The Silver Streak" at the beginning of August.

This is very good news.  I will probably purchase this.

 

Don't see an Amazon preorder yet.

Yep, a sure buy for me.  Surprised it took this long to release.


See you at the pah-ty, Richter.

Great film. Patrick McGoohan is at his villainous best as Roger Devereau. I'm always surprised by the relatively high body-count and violence of the film's last 20 mins!

I'll definitely be picking this one up.


Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I will not support anything your company produces until then.

As I'm a jerk, I must point out that it's just "Silver Streak". Possible to correct the thread title?

The first and best Wilder/Pryor film from the chamelionlike hands of Arthur Hiller and the criminally unsung Colin Higgins.

I could hear him discuss "plots and scenarios" for hours ;)

Absolutely! I can hear it now...  :)

 

Of course, this was back in the good old days when actors over the age of 30 could be cast as villains!

 

Looking forward to finally seeing this in HD.

Not seen this one or Stir Crazy in over 20 years but will happily pick this up. Not a Bluray, but Shout is releasing what appears to be an epic CD/DVD boxset of Richard Pryor stand up this month. Fans might be interested. (Ron, please update my link to the HTF one. :) )
