    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    That's the post I made reference to. But it's a far cry from what has been said in this thread about Kino Lorber's thoughts on the viability of Bing Crosby films in today's Blu-Ray market. I suspect Bob Hope's films sell better than the majority of their golden age releases, yet thankfully...

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    It's been said in this thread that Kino Lorber Insider has said many times that Bing Crosby's films don't sell. Curious about just what has been said, I did a search. Going through every instance of Bing or Crosby that he's ever posted at this forum shows no such statements that I could find...

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    I think you've gotten the wrong impressions from my posts, Anthony. I'm not out to tell anyone their business or act like I know all the answers. I've simply been expressing my disappointment along with a fair bit of confusion on why Bing Crosby is a name that they want to avoid while releasing...

    If we're looking at high profile visibility for most of the stars in the average 1930's-1950's Kino Lorber release, only a handful have had much in recent decades. Most remain known in declining numbers due solely to what they accomplished back in the day. And during the 1940's, one of the...

    As a 38 year old classic movie fan, that's news to me that we're not supposed to like Bing Crosby. And considering that all they've released for Bing movies until last summer have been the Road movies and if Kino Lorber is avoiding licensing more Crosby movies due to low sales in the past, it...

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    I wonder why they think Bing doesn't sell. All they've released that feature him to the best of my knowledge are the Road movies and the recent release of The Emperor Waltz. And if the Road movies were such sales duds, I wonder why they've not been shy at trying a lot more Bob Hope. While I...

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    What's the issue been with getting The Good, the Bad and the Ugly correct? I think it looks great now, but I also never saw it in theaters (Not that my memory is good enough to know years later if what I'm watching at home is fully accurate or not). Yet the review at that "other site" as I see...
