I’ve collected Twilight Time Blu-rays since you started up seven or eight years ago, and have almost never been disappointed with their quality and special features, especially your commentaries and liner notes. You and Nick and Brian certainly built an amazing business model out of little but your love of classic movies. Most of us cannot come close to achieving this sort of enterprise, and while you were probably walking a financial tightrope most of the time, you were able to bring to us movies that you love and wanted to make available to collectors, most of them ones we would never have on our shelves if not for the three of you.
The sad elephant in the room now is Nick’s passing, and, as much as we all “loved” Nick the way people can love others whom they’ve never met, we’ll never feel the loss in the way you did and do. After listening to him on so many audio tracks, I really do feel as though I’ve met him. I watched BRING ME THE HEAD OF ALFREDO GARCIA again last night, and it was just so comforting, somehow, to hear his gentle, Brit-accented voice guiding us through so much information. I only realized a year or two ago that he had recorded commentaries for several releases that did not even come from TT. But the best of his talks were the ones he shared with you. The two of you had such obvious chemistry, sort of like Morning Joe and Mika. I am glad you (and we) had as many years with him as you had.
We all miss the monthly TT announcements which so often revealed gems we never thought we’d see on disc. But carrying on with the business now must be very difficult. Please know that, if you decide, and are able, to carry on with your wonderful label at some point in the future, we will be there to support you.
With great respect and admiration, Rick, HTF member.
