    RAINTREE COUNTY on Blu?

    It's a great photo (taken by her friend Firooz Zahedi) and really shows off her playful side!

    RAINTREE COUNTY on Blu?

    I was delighted that Tim Millard asked my question about Raintree County on the latest episode of The Extras Podcast. George Feltenstein gave a very in-depth response, around seven minutes in length (beginning around the 21-minute mark), about the history of the film, the challenges of restoring...

    IDENTIKIT (aka THE DRIVER'S SEAT) starring Elizabeth Taylor coming to Blu-ray

    I'd buy all three in a heartbeat! I'm surprised The Taming of the Shrew hasn't been released yet. Hopefully it's part of Kino's Sony deal. Paramount has been churning out a number of releases over the last two years, so we could see Elephant Walk from them at some point.

    IDENTIKIT (aka THE DRIVER'S SEAT) starring Elizabeth Taylor coming to Blu-ray

    Speaking of her post-Virginia Woolf output, I was hoping that we would see Ash Wednesday through Kino's deal with Paramount. A member of another forum included it in a list of films they were interested in, but the KL Insider said none of them were part of the deal, although they'd asked for...

    IDENTIKIT (aka THE DRIVER'S SEAT) starring Elizabeth Taylor coming to Blu-ray

    Agreed! Not thrilled about having to purchase three films I have no interest in to get this, but I'm pleased that it's being rescued from PD hell. Never thought I'd see this one on Blu-ray!

    Warner Bros Archive Wish List 2022 and Beyond!!

    If you're referring to the 1945 adaptation, WAC released it on Blu-ray back in 2014. It looks gorgeous! :)

    One of my regrets is not seeing Raintree County in 35mm at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto about a decade ago. Have a great time, Ken, and please share your experience with us after!

    Blu-ray Review The Tales of Hoffmann Blu-ray Review

    This has been on my list of films to see for ages, and this release sounds like the perfect opportunity for me to fix this oversight. Thanks for another great review, Matt!
