    He was also pretty effective in Sirocco which is coming out on Blu-ray in the U.K.

    I'm sure that at one stage in her life . . . . . . she had a few fans!

    This is very good news for fans of Esther Williams and also for movie fans in general. DVDs of The Unguarded Moment suffered from a very poor transfer and, if I recall correctly, pan-and-scan in Region 1. A new scan from, I hope, good elements, will produce a major upgrade and my credit card is...

    I strongly advise that you include at least one title that didn't get even a DVD release, e.g. Destry.

    I'm sorry to hear that . . . . and also a bit surprised.

    Hey, just look at those mistakes! The cinematographers should be Harry Wild (Jane Russell's favorite) Leo Tover, Joseph La Shelle and William Snyder. I hope more care was taken with the transfer!

    The disc of Le Magnifique provides de-grained images with all faces having ludicrously smooth skin. It's particularly noticeable in the "imagination" scenes which are always more brightly lit than the "reality" scenes. The images are vivid and clear and the color is good.

    The Bing Crosby film I'd most like to have on disc is Man On Fire with a young and radiant Inger Stevens. The title song is still available on some compilation CDs but the film has gone missing in action.

    I have numerous Kino Lorber Blu-ray discs and many of them have good picture quality. I re-watched Foxfire (1955) the other day and that has very good quality images. The film was the last made with the old Technicolor process and was photographed by William Daniels.

    Christmas is not far off, so may I gently remind you that Remember The Night also starred Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck.

    Tight Spot is in one of the U. K. Blu-ray box-sets of Columbia (now Sony) titles. I believe there is a copyright problem with You Were Never Lovelier and was the reason Twilight Time didn't follow up on You'll Never Get Rich. Being a major Rita Hayworth fan, I'd love You Were Never Lovelier to...

    A good list but where's Lost Command? Directed by Mark Robson, photographed by Robert Surtees, and starring Anthony Quinn, Alain Delon and Claudia Cardinale, this movie merits a superb transfer, worthy of Sony's finest!

    I don't think he has been forgotten. Many younger people - "the newer fellows" - have never known him at all and so have zero interest in his work. Older big and loyal Crosby fans have had his films on DVD for a very long time but have never upgraded to Blu-ray and don't need high definition...

    I saw the film when it first came out and the images were not attractive. The Blu-ray disc replicates what I recall from that first viewing. I have no complaints about the disc.

    Like many regular posters here, I have numerous Kino-Lorber discs. I find the quality is hugely variable. Some are excellent, some mediocre and a few are downright awful.

    The Anthony Quinn/Gina Lollobrigida version was released on DVD a long time ago. It might be possible to find one.

    I also not so long ago watched three films in the Tony Curtis box-set. Two of the films, The Perfect Furlough and 40 Pounds Of Trouble have good picture quality while the third movie, The Great Imposter, has even better images.

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    I agree that opinions about picture quality are more interesting than lists of films people would like to own. I've recently watched all three movies in the Kino Western Box-set and all three discs have good picture quality without being startlingly good. The films are Gun For A Coward...

    Kino's new disc of Ulzana's Raid is excellent with very good 1970s picture quality and an interview with co-star Bruce Davison. Anyone who enjoys tough, unsentimental Westerns should invest in this disc.

    In this context I mean with such trust and respect that you base your purchasing decisions on his screen caps rather than on the opinions of people who have watched the disc.

    Are you really telling us that you take DVD Beaver's screencaps seriously?

    I'm watching several Kino-Lorber Blu-ray discs at the moment, and The Spiral Staircase tonight. Two recent discs are Hickey & Boggs, with Robert Culp directing as well as acting, and Cannon For Cordoba. Although both films are open to easy criticism, both discs have excellent picture quality...

    I watched both Lisbon and A Man Alone earlier this week. I was pleased with both discs but A Man Alone has better picture quality. (It's a better movie too! Every fan of Westerns should buy this disc)

    I'm very pleased with Kino's disc of The Sicilian Clan.

    I watched Fuzz this evening. This was the first time I've seen this film properly since it was first released. It's still an uneven and misjudged film, veering uncomfortably between comedy and drama. I'd forgotten how small Raquel Welch's part was. Kino Lorber's disc is excellent with very...

    Last night I watched the Blu-ray disc of The Great Train Robbery. I loved this film when it first came out and I haven't changed my opinion at all. I still can't quite believe that Sean Connery really did that sequence on the roof of the train. Surely it was a stunt double with a Sean Connery...

    I watched the Kino Lorber disc of Report To The Commissioner last night. I saw this film when it first came out and was mildly impressed. The print I saw was muddy with poor definition. KL's Blu-ray disc provides a much better presentation of this rather unusual movie, and I recommend this disc...

    I've never found it difficult to be respectful towards Mr. Lime and I've always been puzzled that some people seem to find it impossible. I think you moderators may have to be a lot tougher and less tolerant with posters who relish conflict than in the past.
