Followers of HTF will be pleased to know that the UK will be getting two new blu ray releases this spring/early summer: Phantom of The Opera and Captain Clegg (1962) followed by a DVD release only of Shadow of the Cat (1961). These discs will be loaded with extras and are being released by a very dedicated distribution company in the UK called Media Sales (UK) Ltd.
These are exciting releases . The reason that Shadow of the Cat is NOT being released on blu ray as well is due to the distributor being unable to locate suitable elements in order to produce the best possible HD transfer. My colleagues at Media Sales are at pains to ensure that these releases get the best possible transfers .
Exciting times ahead. I am sure further releases of vintage Hammer will follow if these prove to be successful releases.
