Man, I really want to check out The Wayward Bus, but The Roots of Heaven does fill a Huston gap. I have a week to decide at least. Thanks Rock!


I purchased THE WAYWARD BUS when it was first released. I have watched it many times. Great transfer, stellar over the top acting and decent story. You should not be disappointed if you go in this direction.

Lucky you, Jose. I'd never seen Swamp Water before this TT Blu-ray, so I had no idea what to expect. After its final shots, I was dumbstruck...I just couldn't believe such fine golden era filmmaking had never even made it to DVD.

 

Swamp Water is definitely one of my favorite Twilight Time films they have ever brought out.  It came literally out of nowhere, and I'm sure it only got picked up because Renoir's name was attached to it (or one of the TT guys really liked it).  Either way, bought it based on the cast alone and greatly enjoyed it, especially with that superb blu-ray quality.

 

Frankly, I think the cover art might have sent mixed messages about what the film is, making it look like some sort of cheesy slasher movie in the Southern bayous instead of the great golden-age drama it is.

Steve,

The print of Swamp Water I saw decades ago was sepia toned as well. It's too bad that except for Wizard of Oz, we don't get films transferred in sepia as originally shown.

Well folks at first nothing on this list really grabbed me as must have. But I did run some titles thru Uncle Google and found a couple I might end up ordering during the sale. "High Time" and "Cover Girl" look interesting.

You can't go wrong with either. Good choices.

5 titles at 1995 will come up to 99.75.

Will one need to purchase an additional title to get up to that $100 tag for the autograph

and what is the closest we can get without going over $100?

 

Well drat Tony, it's just heartbreaking to hear that TT and SAE are forcing you to buy 6 of their fine Blu-rays for the price of 4...and possibly a 7th, if you're quick enough to make the cut for that FREE autographed copy of The Front too.

 

I mean, it's a cruel, cruel world... ;)

Big congrats to Nick & Julie.  I've just added two additional titles to my Wish List to pick up during the sale next week. 

 

Oh and please move Heaven & Earth to bring Skatetown USA and Thank God Its Friday to Blu.

I know, I know but I think it is a legit question. Still waiting to hear.

 

 

I have gone through the list and only see two that I want to buy not including anything new that comes out in the next wave

which may or may not include two more for me.

Savvy collectors have already noted that the most economic way to pre-load the cart in order to qualify for a free signed copy of THE FRONT utilizing promotion titles is to include four titles priced at $19.95 and one title priced at $24.95 -- a grand total of $104.75.

...and that was just some gentle teasing on my part Tony.

 

Although geeeeez man...TT's catalogue is getting to be pretty extensive and varied by now, plus this once-in-who-knows-how-many-times-we'll-ever-see-something-like-it-again sale already amounts to effectively 1/3 off list for Blu-rays...and 1/2 off for DVDs.

 

As has been pointed out many times before not only here but elsewhere, with only 3000 of these suckers in existence - all but one title region free - they also tend to hold their value exceptionally well in the aftermarket. So even if you took a fly on something of only borderline interest or outside your usual comfort zone, there's almost a no-lose logic to it. Handled with care, you will always be able to find a secondhand buyer out there...somewhere.

 

Even though I already own all TT titles, at these prices, I'll be buying some for friends who I know wouldn't take a chance on them otherwise. And if they really, truly don't like them, heck, I'll gladly take them back and just sit on them for awhile...then resell and recoup. Only Criterion comes close to that same level of built-in no risk resale guarantee.

Remember what Nick said, the March 11th titles will be staggered shipments due to the lack of standard BD cases.

^^
I know you were kidding.
Problem for me is I have all the movies from TT that I want from what is available now
Except for the two I have some interest in.

My $20-30 needs to be spent on movies I actually want. So if I don't get to$100 it's okay.

Am I understanding you right, Twilight Time? The signed copy of The Front is FREE for those who qualify with the orders of over $100? I thought the $100 promotion just qualified you to PURCHASE a signed copy! If it's the case that it is free, well then that's just too good to pass up!

There's other details, Mark (just 150 copies!).  From the OP:

 

Also on Wednesday, March 19th at 4 pm EST when the April pre-orders go live, we will have approximately 150 copies of THE FRONT signed by the lovely Miss Andrea Marcovicci, which will be available for the usual $100 or more of TT product - but this month your $100 will go a lot further if you wish to take advantage of the price-promotion gang of 36 - all of which are listed below. SAE suggests that for those of you wishing to take part in the promotion and also inclined to obtain a signed copy of THE FRONT, use the list below to pre-load your shopping cart so you’ll be able to proceed directly to the autographed copy icon.


There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

Yeah, I read those details, Mike, and the word "free" wasn't in there which is what gave me the impression that the 150 signed copies were only available for purchase to those with qualifying orders.

I'd like to also congratulate TT on three excellent years. The upcoming sale will no doubt nudge me off the fence for a few titles.
