    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    Well, if you're a fan of the novel, then the movie might be a harder sell. I've seen the movie and read the novel (plus the Wishbone version), and my own conclusion is that they took the basic concept of the story, a few of the events (but not necessarily in the right order), a few character...

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    And since others have been posting their wish lists, I'll throw mine in, too (and let me be clear: I'm certain few, if any, of these will be included in this first deal, but I certainly hope that Kino and Sony can work out another deal in the future that might include some of these). Pennies...

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    On the other forum, the Insider posted this decade breakdown of all the new-to-blu (in the U.S.) releases: "New to the U.S. market: 90s x 1 80s x 1 70s x 3 60s x 1 50s x 1 - I'm pretty sure" So the 1940s title was previously released in the U.S. There's been some early speculation that it...

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    So far, the Insider has indicated no 4K (although they hope to get the rights to do ONE title in 4K). MOST LIKELY, we are talking about most of the 24 re-releases being OOP titles from Twilight Time.

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    I sincerely doubt that it's as simple as you are making it out to be. Kino has said they think he is a poor seller, yes, but they never said it was for any of their releases. After all, I would suspect that they are likely to have some access to sales data for stuff released by Universal on...

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    At this point, I really don't think anything other than single releases would be the way to go. I'm sorry, but Kino's Insider has repeatedly stated that their actor/actress box sets from last year were poor sellers (a fact that you can tell by the sheer fact that Kino seems to have abandoned...

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    I wasn't trying to argue the quality of the film. I've seen it, I enjoyed it quite a bit, and would be quick to buy it on Blu-ray myself if it was made available. I don't quite understand why you bring its box office success into the equation, as success back during its original theatrical...

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    I don't know why you're so surprised about that. Kino's Insider has stated on numerous occasions that Bing Crosby is NOT a big seller, and I could have sworn they indicated that they did NOT add any Bing Crosby titles when they added more stuff to their third deal this summer (leaving only The...

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    Well, I would say there's two strikes against Bing Crosby. One, we're talking about a star who apparently took a HUGE nosedive in popularity back when his son's book came out. Two (and this may be more important here): what's left of his from the Universal catalog? Holiday Inn is out (and the...

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    Well, if the Insider comes back and answers any more questions today, I have one: are there any films in this new batch featuring George Burns and Gracie Allen?

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    Bing Crosby has already been shot down by the Insider on the other forum. Given their comments that Bing is not a big seller, I can't say I'm surprised (but I'm definitely disappointed). That just means, as I've said before, that we've GOT to make sure that both Blue Skies and The Emperor...

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    To the best of my knowledge, I don't think it is. And, quite frankly, I would be surprised if it did make it. Kino's Insider has made comments to the effect that Bing Crosby is a poor seller (whether true or not, Kino has certainly hesitated about trying to bring any of his non-Road films to...

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    Out of curiosity, has anybody else had a chance to watch their Nothing But The Truth Blu-ray? I was just watching mine, and I noticed part of the scene (right before the hour mark) when the guys are taking off Bob Hope's pajamas was cut on the Blu-ray (compared to the Universal DVD I have)...
