    What are the chances of The Wild Bunch on 4K disc?

    The Wild Bunch was released on Blu-ray in 2007 and re-released in 2011. What are the chances that we will ever see a new 4K scan released on UHD 4K disc? Or has it already been scanned? I'm not familiar with the current state of its source elements or digital scans. I have seen the restored...

    Is there some reason why Mike Leigh's much underappreciated and underseen historic epic Peterloo has not been released on Blu-ray/DVD in the U.S.? (Yes, I know it's available streaming.)

    Bull Durham on Blu-ray

    My husband wants to get Bull Durham on Blu-ray. I see a Blu-ray came out in 2010 which got lackluster reviews. I've also seen mention of a Bull Durham MGM 90th Anniversary Edition supposedly released in January 2014 but I can't find any reviews and I can't find it for sale on Amazon. Was there...

    The Mentalist Season 1 now available in Blu-ray

    More John Ford on Blu-ray?

    Anyone know of any additional John Ford films in the pipeline for Blu-ray? My number one Ford film for Blu-ray is She Wore a Yellow Ribbon but I assume it would need an entirely new restored master for Blu-ray transfer. My dream is that WB restores it and debuts the restoration at the TCM...

    Shane Blu-ray... in 1:66?

    Jeffrey Wells at Hollywood-Elsewhere.com posted a column during the HTF hiatus stating that he had talked with George Stevens, Jr., who had told him that SHANE will be released on Blu-ray -- in 1:66. Surely SHANE should be seen in 1:37, even though it was shown theatrically in widescreen when...

    Finnegan Begin Again

    Brian, I am so with you on Preston and Moore, though whatever I'm watching with either actor, I tend to think that about that particular performance. They are two incredibly accomplished and charismatic performers. Finnegan Begin Again is just about at the top of my list of unreleased TV...

    My Friend Tony

    Does anyone remember a TV series that lasted for half a season in 1969 called My Friend Tony? It starred James Whitmore and an Italian actor, Enzo Cerusico. I remember loving this when I was a kid and being really sad when it was cancelled. I've never seen it since but every now and then recall...

    Sam Peckinpah's Noon Wine

    I have been waiting in vain for a DVD release of Sam Peckinpah's critically acclaimed ABC-TV production of Noon Wine, starring Jason Robards and Olivia de Havilland.   It never even got a release on VHS.   Surely there would be enough interest in this to make it worth someone's while to...

    Glitch One: I can't get the menu selections on my BD copy of An American in Paris. I get the menu picture (from the ballet) but no selections for the various options and extras. I tried Gigi and that worked fine. (I am surprised that both Gigi and AAIP go directly to the movie when I put...

    Wouldn't you know it, they finally remaster Stephen Chow's Royal Tramp films, and then release them in two different sets! One is the Joy Sales Hong Kong region-0 set, and the other is Dragon Dynasty's region 1. Which one to get? Best PQ, audio and (very important), best subtitles? Dragon...

    The New Kung Fu Set

    Has anyone here seen the new Kung Fu set with all three seasons? I'd like to know if WB has finally released the first season in the proper full frame aspect ratio, rather than the MAR fake widescreen it was originally released in. (Seasons 2 and 3 were released in the proper fullscreen AR.)...

    Can anyone confirm who has the rights to the short-lived (17 episodes) 1966 TV western Shane? The production company was Titus Productions, which was bought out by Taft Productions at some point, and the studio was Paramount. Some pals of mine want to see about getting this show onto DVD. (I...

    Elevator to the Gallows Aspect Ratio?

    Hi, I just saw Louis Malle's Elevator to the Gallows at the Landmark Midtown Art Cinema in Atlanta, and I'm wondering what the aspect ratio of this film is supposed to be. They showed it 1:85 but at that ratio heads were frequently chopped off -- sometimes just to the middle of the forehead, or...
