SYNOPSIS

In a bold departure from his musical comedy roles, Mickey Rooney plays Little Joe Braun, a brash labor union boss who uses strong-arm tactics to evade a federal corruption probe. Two honest factory-workers—Steve Cochran (Private Hell 36) and velvet-voiced Mel Tormé—find themselves caught in the gang lord’s struggle for power, but come to realize they have the power to end Little Joe’s reign of terror...if they can survive Little Joe’s attempts to silence them. 

A production from Albert Zugsmith (Touch of Evil, High School Confidential), the king of the tawdry B-picture, The Big Operator is a sublime specimen of Cold War-era noir, highlighted by the special appearances of pop culture icons Mamie Van Doren, Vampira, Jim Backus, and Jackie Coogan.

Haven't seen any of these.  The Big Operator is intriguing, I love Mickey Rooney noirs.  None of the others are immediately jumping out at me.

I like both The Big Operator and South Of St. Louis so I'll buy them.

 

I've never seen Honour but the core premise sounds interesting, or at least could be interesting if developed properly. Has anyone a firm opinion of this film?

God, that's a shitty line-up of Boop cartoons. One of the all-time greatest cartoons managed to slip in almost by accident, seemingly...

It's their final volume of Boop cartoons, too, since they won't be doing the PD ones (or, should I say, the ones Paramount has determined to be PD).

 

This reduces the Paramount licensed titles to 25 BD/DVD releases and 6 BD upgrades.

 

And it seems they are now back on to a 4 Paramount titles per month schedule, which means they should finish 'em up around May-June 2015 (assuming they don't release anything in December like the last few years).

"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

I remember my dad used to watch "Big Operator" on tv and he'd be sitting there cracking up. Lots of unintentional humor in there, I'd guess.

 

But my dad could never take Mickey too seriously. The family legend goes that my dad's aunt and uncle lived in the same building as Mickey Rooney and his mother back in the 40s. And my relatives would always hear Mickey yelling at his mom, so they'd open up the vent for a better listen. Stuff like "Aw, Ma, you're outta your mind!!" Too bad they didn't have recording devices in those days--they probably heard some good stuff!

So, they're letting DR. TERROR'S HOUSE OF HORRORS go without a Halloween Blu release for the second time since announcing this title...? Either that or they're cutting it really close...

It'll be another month until they announce their October titles. Seems like the key time to release it.

Veterans Day in November?  If they're releasing South of St. Louis that never even had a DVD release, I'm pretty sure a film with one of John Wayne's most famous roles is coming out soon too.

That, or they hold it all the way to Memorial Day 2015 would be my guess. It's easily the most marketable title of the 31 remaining, IMO.

There's some logic to the Memorial Day 2015 date. The Duke's 2 other WW2 films released by Olive were "The Fighting Seabees" in April 2013, then "Flying Tigers" in May of this year. Hopefully it won't be that long but it does seem to follow a pattern (if 2 can be called a pattern).

That, or they hold it all the way to Memorial Day 2015 would be my guess. It's easily the most marketable title of the 31 remaining, IMO.

 

The Adalen Riots (1969)
Adventures of Captain Fabian (1951)
The Beat Generation (1959)
Beware, My Lovely (1952)
Cauldron of Blood (1970)
Come Back to the 5 & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean (1982)
Dragonfly Squadron 3D (1954)
Dr. Terror's House of Horrors (1965)
The Eternal Sea (1955)
Flying Disc Man from Mars (1950)
Hell's Five Hours (1958)
The Invisible Monster (1950)
The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams (1974)
Man of Conquest (1939)
Outrage (1950)
The Private Affairs of Bel Ami (1947)
The Quiet Gun (1957)
Sands of Iwo Jima (1949)
The Shanghai Story (1954)
The Strange Affair of Uncle Harry (1945)
Stranger at My Door (1956)
Track the Man Down (1955)
The Weapon (1956)
Woman They Almost Lynched (1953)
World for Ransom (1954)


DVD-only releases that need Blu-ray upgrade:

The Buccaneer (1938)
The Lawless (1950)
No Man of Her Own (1950)
Pony Express (1953)
Something to Live For (1952)
Tropic of Cancer (1970)

I watched Pony Express a couple nights ago.  It has a lot of three-strip registration errors so it may be why there is no BD.

I jumped all over Distant Drums and South of St. Louis as the price will definitely increase before this time next week.

 

I can't believe that South of St. Louis is going to be on BD.  Another Joel McCrea western classic with Zachary Scott playing his usual villain role, well, maybe not. ;)

Meh....still waiting on "The Sands of Iwo Jima"!!!

+1

Also might be in for "South of St. Louis" budget permitting. Have some TT titles coming out around that time I'm already in for ("The Blob", "Audrey Rose" and "La Bamba").
