    No, I mean the ‘41 version. There’s a decent amount of footage not found on the DVD that apparently turned up on a German television print. https://www.movie-censorship.com/report.php?ID=897474

    Question for Ron: Any idea when the Archive will put out official press releases for the May batch? I am most curious to know if the missing footage from Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde has been restored or not.

    Count me among those who hate The Silver Chalice (except for Waxman’s score, which is undeniably brilliant). I tried to like the film since I’m usually attracted to historical epics, but I simply could not stand sloppily executed storyline which doesn’t try to hide that it’s blatantly ripping...

    Great news about the two versions of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. While the Fredric March is undeniably the superior film, I have a soft spot for the Tracy version (plus, you can never go wrong with Ingrid Bergman in my book). I’m hoping they were able to good materials with English audio for the...

    On the latest The Extras podcast, George Feltenstein has mentioned that the Archive has been working on something that is “quite long” and with elements that are “quite beaten.” Any guesses on what it could possibly be? https://www.theextras.tv/podcasts/blog-post-wacaug21-3122

    I don’t know if it will necessarily be released through the Archive, but on one of the podcasts he’s been on, Mr. Feltenstein has mentioned wanting to do a 4K release of Excalibur, which I believe had a mediocre transfer on Blu-Ray.

    Yeah, I suspect the film’s public domain status may have discouraged them from doing anything with the film at that point. Though it’s quite evident that the Archive is starting to get bolder as far as public domain films with this and Santa Fe Trail last year.

    George Feltenstein has made an appearance on the below podcast, where he states that the two titles previously announced are all we’ll be getting for January, though he says that February’s slate will be a surprise (which I guess it could be now that the Archive has seemingly gone back to...

    Yeah, I miss when they would post clips from their upcoming releases, especially if they posted a restoration comparison (I believe their May batch was the last time they did this). I hope the Archive starts posting clips again soon.

    Yes, I remember the death of Zossima, which really shocked the congregation as Bujaki mentioned. I really found the subsequent part where Alyosha is so devastated by Zossima’s decay that he goes to Grushenka to destroy his soul, only to find renewed spirituality very moving.

    I actually enjoyed the book. Granted, there were moments where it would tend to drag, primarily when the book would turn philosophical and parts of the trial near the end, but I was actually able to keep a clear idea of what was going on and found the characters really fleshed-out, though the...

    I can’t answer for a majority of those Hanna-Barbera shows, but I can see the Marvel connection being a major issue with regards to Fantastic Four. As for some of my personal wants, I’m hoping for films like Land of the Pharaohs, The Prisoner of Zenda (1937), and The Brothers Karamazov...

    Someone please correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe Public Enemy already has a Blu-ray release.

    Looks like it’s just Ivanhoe and Angels with Dirty Faces for December, if this podcast with Mr. Feltenstein is anything to go by. The podcast also brings up potential 4K releases of The Exorcist and Excalibur, further roadblocks with The Devils, and a 1934 film that’s been delayed due to...

    I actually like how Julius Caesar looks without the tinting (but would be open to giving it a shot if it was intended by Mankiewicz) as the lack of tinting gives the film the look of a historical Film Noir.

    I’m not sure I’d call Julius Caesar an adventure film cause apart from the depiction of the Battle of Phillipi, it’s more of a straightforward drama that faithfully follows the play. That said, I would definitely welcome an Archive release of it (preferably with the option to play the film with...

    Someone refresh my memory, please. What was the legal issue that was holding up Angels again? Anyway, I’m glad the Archive was able to sort it out, though I’m going to have to revisit the film before I make any decisions regarding buying. Also super happy seeing Ivanhoe getting the Archive...

    During one of the podcasts, Mr. Feltenstein answered an inquiry I made about the 1937 version (I didn’t think to ask about the remake) saying that both the negative and the second generation dupe were lost and that they’ll have to scour archives across the globe for good elements. This was back...

    While I do love Ivanhoe, I have to concede that Robin Hood is the superior film, particularly with regards to editing (that was one well-deserved Oscar for Robin Hood). However, Ivanhoe does just as well in production values (I’d argue that Miklós Rózsa’s score is just that little bit superior...

    Also, going by the last podcast, the Goldwyn library is apparently in very poor condition, so it may be awhile before we get a restoration of the film.

    It looks like Chain Lightning has been pushed back. The Archive’s Facebook page made a post a few hours ago about this month’s releases (no details) and all but Chain Lightning were listed.

    Amazon links have recently been added for Chain Lightning, It Happened at the World’s Fair, and Madame Curie (which is surprising since George Feltenstein said on the podcast that the next Greer Garson release would most likely be Random Harvest).

    Over at the other forum, it’s been reported that the TCM festival transfers for Take Me Out to the Ball Game and Chain Lightning (a Bogart film I had never heard of before) on HBOMAX are new masters, so we can potentially add those to the list of possibilities for next month’s announcements.

    Perhaps they’re going back to announcing on the third Tuesday of the month, which is what they were doing up until November, when they started doing announcements at the beginning of the month.

    The potentially “last” podcast includes information about a number of films being likely contenders for future Archive releases, including the repetition that there’s a “plan” for The Wind and The Crowd, plus the fact that they don’t have the rights to the 1971 King Lear and that there are...

    The clips seem genuine enough, (and the clips of Elizabeth and Essex look especially pleasing), but considering what today is, I’m concerned it might be an April Fools prank.
