    International New Film Noir Box-Set From Indicator.

    My Bogart box set arrived in California this morning! :banana: I'm debating whether or not to order their upcoming Universal set, as I already have 3 of the 6 titles from Kino. I do love all the bonus features and the booklet that come with the Indicator sets, so I may end up springing for that.

    Press Release SPHE Press Release: 1776 (1972) (4k UHD)

    Sorry to hear that you're still having trouble with your 3rd disc, Ron. I just received my replacement set, and, thankfully, both my Panasonic UB820 and Oppo 203 can play the 4k disc. HOWEVER, the Panasonic will not recognize the 3rd disc of Special Features from the new set, though the Oppo...

    Press Release SPHE Press Release: 1776 (1972) (4k UHD)

    On my Panasonic UB820, the Special Features disc plays fine, but the 4k disc won't even load (though it does load on my Oppo 203). I've requested a replacement from Amazon.

    Blu-ray Review A Few Words About A few words about…™ Flower Drum Song – in Blu-ray

    I'm not positive, but I don't think it was, as I'm sure I would have purchased it in HD from Amazon if it had been, and it's not in my Amazon library. After it became available in HD on iTunes, I purchased it from them for the same price as you. :)

    Blu-ray Review A Few Words About A few words about…™ Flower Drum Song – in Blu-ray

    Amazon had been streaming it in HD. Not sure why it's only available in SD now. Perhaps they had to pull the free HD version to not hamper sales of the new Blu-ray?

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - Singin' in the Rain -- in 4k UHD

    UPDATE: I read on that other site where someone else with an Oppo 203 had been having playback issues with their 4k discs. They now wash their problem discs with a few drops of dishwashing liquid and dry them in an outward motion with a microfiber cloth and it has worked for them. I followed...

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - Singin' in the Rain -- in 4k UHD

    I'm having the same problem with my Oppo UDP-203. The disc constantly freezes up through the entire party scene. I, too, tried wiping the disc clean without any luck. :( I finally gave up and switched over to the 4k digital version. Is anyone else having trouble playing it on their Oppo...

    Sally Ann Howes has died at 91

    I had the great pleasure of seeing her in “The King & I” with Ricardo Montalban in San Francisco. It was my first time seeing that show on the stage and I was enraptured! (I actually preferred it to a touring production I saw years later with Yul Brynner.) And of course she was delightful and...
