    Doctor Who

    I don't know Ncuti Gatwa -- I trust RTD picked an excellent actor and I hope Gatwa gets good material to work with. BBC's brought back RTD, ok, but how about bringing back Murray Gold? I miss his main title and his orchestral/choral scoring which gave us a sense of adventure and excitement...

    Barabbas HELP !!!!!!!!!

    There are new 70mm prints of LORD JIM? When did this happen? I first saw BARABBAS in grade school when I projected a 16mm print for school viewing.

    THE CARDINAL - 1963

    The Cardinal star (remarkable Moross score) -- Tom Tryon -- also starred in Disney's little comedy Moon Pilot. I would love to see Preminger's BIG film restored on Blu-ray or 4K.

    Public Service Announcement: Why you should wash "minor" cat scratch wounds right away

You do not want to go there. It can easily be treated early on with a regimen of prescribed antibiotics. And if...

    International THE ALAMO (John Wayne's extended cut)

    Barring, of course, the discovery of another pristine 70mm roadshow print in Canada (or elsewhere) -- not holding my breath. Darn.
