I saw Paper Moon for the first time while sitting in my father's lap.  You just don't forget those times.  It's my favorite comedy of all time. 

 

I'd pay just about anything for a good blu ray of it.  All that 4K stuff and all.  And by the way, I gave you a $50!  Look in the register honey, it's a mistake anybody could make.  There it is, says Happy Birthday to My Favorite Radioman right there!   :P

A United States release might not be too far behind.

I believe the Scorpion label has Saint Jack. A Eureka MOC release of Paper Moon might augur a Criterion release here.

Count me in for a Region A Blu of Paper Moon. 

 

If Criterion were to be the company to release it?  Hell, yeah.


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!

With Criterion breaking up their BBS box (by releasing Five Easy Pieces), it does leave The Last Picture Show as a possible re-release.

They could do like they did with the Shawn-Gregory set (a mix of upgrade and new).

 

Create a Bogdanovich black-and-white set -

    The Last Picture Show,

    Paper Moon,

    Nickelodeon (which has been shown both in color and b&w).

How definite is that? Saint Jack is a film I really want on disc. I'm still making do with a DVD-R transferred from VHS!

Wow, great news. I will probably get this region B release unless there is an announcement of a US release. Criterion would be a perfect landing spot for this film.

Scorpion has said it has Saint Jack, but when it may be released I couldn't say. It was on DVD ages ago but needs an upgrade.

I think I'll do everyone a favor and buy the Region B MOC... because every time I do, as soon as it arrives, Criterion announces *their* release!  ;)

Maybe Scorpion worked out their own licensing deal with Paramount? If so, that would be promising.


"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

No, no, Scorpion has Saint Jack, which was also mentioned in the thread.

That makes more sense.
