    Where are "Stage Door" and "Summertime"?

    Well, Stage Door last came out from the Warner Archives, so they'd be the ones to ask.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Camelot -- in Blu-ray

    That's a fairly recent version, almost a staged concert reading type of thing. I believe the entire cast never leaves the stage. Not sure how much of the book is cut out, but they do emphasize the music.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Camelot -- in Blu-ray

    Camelot suffers from too many prognostications, endless debates and little action. If I were filming it, I'd have trimmed that and focused more on the unique music ( meaning, casting different actors in this film, actual singers, ya know?). As it stands, they did cut only a few of the songs, but...

    Ray Fulmer as Darrin?

    Ray Fulmer actually looked like the long-lost love child of both Dick York and Dick Sargent, so...sure!

    Press Release Columbia Classics 4k Collection (photos)

    Oh, I like the movies but I see no reason for them to be in a single set. And as I said, there's no way they're going to move 8000 copies. They should have made it a limited edition of about eight hundred copies--just to create buzz and promote their products--then release all the same movies...

    Mill Creek's rerelease of SOAP

    Yeah it's on the dvds from whichever episodes it was used. Kind of like a Simpsons alternate take opening on some episodes.

    Mill Creek's rerelease of SOAP

    Well, you know if they ever feel the need to crack open the vaults and prepare a definitive version of this series. I'm still unhappy with the cut episodes on the dvd, missing music, etc. I'm sure there's lots of deleted stuff we've never seen, too.

    Weird selection; these movies don't go together. I'm not sure how they think they're going to sell 8000 units.

    Pick a Night of TV Idea

    I thought of watching all the shows that aired the day I was born. Here's the list the internet gave me, and the ones I know for sure are on dvd. I collect 3 of these shows at present: Fri, 05. Nov 1965 Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. S02E38 Hogan's Heroes S01E08 The Addams Family S02E08 The Flintstones...

    Press Release Warner Archive Press Release: V: The Final Battle (Blu-ray)

    It cost $1 million per week in the Fall. As to why the money is not on the screen, I expect that some at the top were taking mighty big checks. I mean, if they'd just bought some new aerial footage to superimpose behind the fighters footage they already had, it would have helped immeasurably...

    Press Release Warner Archive Press Release: V: The Final Battle (Blu-ray)

    It wasn't; the show had the usual 13 episode order at the beginning of the season. The budget made it the most expensive show on television, but the ratings were middling. However, they were still granted the back 9, with the caveat that they reel in the budget. (I don't blame the ratings. The...

    "Reflections" is A-list schlock. It's the grandfather of "The Room."

    Pre-Order Eureka: The Complete Series (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    Right...I might have to wait for reviews before I decide whether to get the MC version. I wanted the German blu but didn't realize all this time that it was region-free.

    Press Release Warner Archive Press Release: V: The Final Battle (Blu-ray)

    They should re-unite the cast to do a table read of the unfilmed final episode, kind of like they did on the "Lost in Space" blu-ray. This won't happen, but I do have a lot of pipe dreams.

    Pre-Order Eureka: The Complete Series (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I can only imagine that the German edition may have better pq than whatever Mill Creek is coming out with here. German release had 18 discs vs. Mill Creek's 12...hmm...

    Pre-Order Eureka: The Complete Series (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    Was the German release region locked? I wanted to get it when it came out but I remember being leery of either the price or the region confusion. This will be a day one purchase, if only to get rid of that awful eco-friendly packaging-- it's all jaggedy and out of sorts when you line all those...

    Marilyn Monroe on blu-ray

    I sure wouldn't mind a Monkey Business blu. It's not even really a Marilyn movie, it's a Cary Grant/Ginger Rogers movie. And it's not even really that funny throughout; it drags here and there. They spend too much watching the monkey mix the potion for example. But oh when it's funny, it's...

    DVD Sets You Would Like to See Redone?

    It's not that it would be technically challenging; it's just that combined 90210 and MP have over 500 episodes. Very costly to open up all those cans and put everything back together. As far as I've gathered over the years, the precious OCNs and other materials were saved, so it's up to them if...

    DVD Sets You Would Like to See Redone?

    Both MP and 90210 were shot on film and edited on video meaning they'd have to go back to the OCNs, scan and recompose the whole show ala Star Trek TNG.

    Mill Creek's rerelease of SOAP

    The episode is not listed on imdb, although the other 3 recap show are. However, I notice TV Guide had a listing for it on 12/20/77. Ultimate 70s mentions it as "a review of the first 13 episodes" : https://www.ultimate70s.com/seventies_history/19771220/television

    Pre-Order Here Comes Peter Cottontail (1971) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    Honestly, are we back to the days where nobody checks these things before slapping them on to a disc? I bought it but hadn't looked at it. Sure enough--it's about 43 min whereas the old dvd is 51 min. The amazon ad is also quite wrong. They are saying 51 in. with a host of extras. I believe...

    Blu-ray Review Lost Horizon (1973) Blu-ray Review

    The thing with this movie is that I first viewed it on television. They were playing it at about 4 in the afternoon and I assumed it had been a made-for-tv film. Judging it on those merits, I found it passable. I didn't find out until years later that it had been a notorious theatrical. Trust...
