I just read at DVDFile that Columbia is releasing "Dead Reckoning" on January 14th. This film starred Humphrey Bogart and the sexy Lizabeth Scott. I hope the other studios start releasing more Bogart films to dvd in 2003, particularly Warner. Also, while you're at it how about some Cagney, Robinson, and Raft?

I saw this, also, on DVD File and was thrilled. I have Dead Reckoning on laserdisc. Hopefully, Columbia will give us some decent supplements with the DVD.

And, yes, we DO need more Cagney, Robinson, and Raft

Great news from Columbia. A perfect follow-up in February would be IN A LONELY PLACE.

Oscar,
Though, it's not one of his best it's a solid film noir in which Bogart plays a WWII vet searching for his war buddy after his disappearance. A bit of trivia regarding this film is that actor's James Cromwell's dad John Cromwell directed this film.

Glad to see that Columbia released a Bogart film. I'm with Peter on hoping to see In a Lonely Place on DVD from Columbia too. Come on Warner, now it's your turn!

This is great news.

After picking up my Bond choices this morning at Best Buy, I stopped at the bargin area and picked up "Beat the Devil" for $4.99. It's an ugly transfer, but we Bogey fans have to tolerate it till the studios give us better releases. Jennifer Jones was a hoot in this.

Bogie is still much better represented on DVD than James Cagney, Errol Flynn, or Fred Astaire. Posted Image

For Bogie, you have major studio releases of:

The Barefoot Contessa
The Big Sleep
The Caine Mutiny
Casablanca
Dark Victory
Key Largo
The Maltese Falcon
Sabrina
Sahara

and a handful of PD releases of other titles.

For Cagney, you have major studio releases of:

Mr. Roberts

For Errol Flynn, you have major studio releases of:

Cuban Story (I guess)

For Astaire, there's:

Funny Face
Holiday Inn
On the Beach (I guess)
Towering Inferno (I guess)

I'm getting depressed. Posted Image

Oscar,
It's been reported about a 55th Anniversary dvd release for "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" for months now.

Same here.

WB has a handful of silent Garbo films which were painstakingly restored by Kevin Brownlow and David Gill. These films include A Woman of Affairs and The Flesh and the Devil. A few Garbo solo films are in hideous condition (The Single Standard, for example) while some have been preserved well (Queen Christina). Love seems to be restored as well, but has a weird "live" score which has laughter overdubbed at inappropriate times.

I hope the sales of the Chaplin SEs next year encourage them to release DVDs of the MGM silents such as the Garbo films.

(Thanks for the correction Robert...I forgot that The Big Parade just had John Gilbert, sans Garbo.)
