    Press Release Warner Archive Press Release: The Pirate (1948) (Blu-ray)

    First, I'm thrilled The Pirate is being released on Blu-ray in what is sure to be a beautiful presentation based upon WAC's 3-strip Technicolor releases earlier this year. Secondly, I'm in agreement with Will about the score. Not Porter's best, but still enjoyable and that original Kay...

    Totally agree! Would be a great choice. I think that since Nick Ray directed it there may be a chance of its release. I read that there was a third dance number either filmed or planned for Cyd that was deleted prior to release. Now I can't get Tony Martin singing the title song out of my head.

    Press Release Warner Archive Press Release: Kentucky Kernels (1934) (Blu-ray)

    Yes, a very unexpected and nice surprise. And it does have two other things going for it other than Wheeler and Woolsey, Director George Stevens and Spanky McFarland. Kentucky Kernels is one of the few W & W titles I haven't bought on DVD-R yet, so this will be a nice addition and I'm sure it'll...
