TCM has a new listing on their vault collection for coming soon and the new listing is, Blu-ray and DVD combo of The Lady From Shanghai. This is TCM's first Blu-ray release since The Iron Petticoat in 2012.

 

I'm really happy about this news and I hope this means more Blu-ray release to come.

This is great news - Hopefully this will be based on the terrific restoration that premiered at the London Film Festival last year. Great to see that Eddie Muller has recorded a commentary but I hope this doesn't mean we are losing the Peter Bogdanovich extras created for the previous DVD release.

This is a complete surprise and, if true, a delightful one. Thanks for the info.

went to the site, for those that complain about TT, well here you go, the price is about the same, the great thing is the release date, is 1/27/2014,  so by the end of the month. I am ok with everything listed, as features, the only complaint is man it has some awful coverart.

I just pre-ordered mine with code "TCMGIFT14" in which I just paid $27.10 with FREE 3-7 days shipping. This will be my 12th Vault purchase from them and I hope it continues.

The price is not "about the same." There's a $5-10 difference. I feel more comfortable purchasing this from TCM than some of these other things from TT.

Being from TCM, this should be available through Movies Unlimited, which means better shipping pricing and service than TT. So I'm happy!

Since a new restoration of the film is playing at the Film Forum in NYC beginning January 31, I figured a Blu-ray release was forthcoming, but I did not think it would be this soon. Great news indeed!

might have to cancel and reorder, thought you needed to spend over $59.00 to use that code

 I thought that too until someone on another forum mentioned it works without it being over $59.

Good luck canceling from TCM Shop -- you can't cancel from the website and the CSR I talked to said she couldn't do it either.  The $5 I'd save isn't worth the headache.

Orders can be cancelled over the phone.  I was forced to go through all the trouble of doing so last year when a website glitch duplicated my order into two separate orders.

 

I also didn't use the code, but I agree that the discount isn't worth the fuss.

Ordered it, but the shipping cost to the UK is the same as the price of the BD itself! Making it more expensive than a Twilight Time release, crazy!

There doesn't seem to be any pattern as to why some Sony films with limited release in the US show up in Europe  in wide release at a cheaper price such as The Way We Were and Oliver! and others are only are available in limited  edition from the US such as Picnic and Cover Girl.

The Lady From Shanghai seems to be only available in the US but not as a limited edition.

Try ordering from Movies Unlimited next time.  They carry all of the TCM Exclusive stock and generally have better international shipping fees.

 

The MU link is here:

Edit:  Checked and MU has a flat shipping rate of $11 for all foreign shipping (except Canada which is $9) which seems the cheaper alternative.

Thanks for the tip, worked like a charm. Blind buy for me, but my wife and I are both noir fans and this seemed right in the wheelhouse for us.

Unfortunately the retail and list price at Movies Unlimited is $10 higher then at TCM,  so for this title there would not be much savings ordering from Movies Unlimited.

These are the sort of releases I love to support!  With a bit of luck, perhaps TCM will start doing this regularly and often.  Can you imagine it if they were to strike a deal with WB?  I run into so many young people at the TCM festivals in L.A. who love classic movies as much as I do and they hope and pray for BD releases of their favorites, as well.  Since the studios seem pretty uninvolved with this market, it's refreshing to see TCM jumping in.  Can't wait to get my LADY FROM SHANGHAI!
