    Cavalcade. 1933. Directed by Frank Lloyd Fri, Jan 20, 4:30 p.m. MoMA How about a blu ray?

    I also saw the film at MoMA. It was vastly superior to the blu-ray and had a real nitrate "glow" and great sound. I still don't think it's a great movie, but a better case than this could not be made. And of course as a Best Picture Oscar winner, it's vital to keep it in circulation. And it's...

    Warner Archive Press Release: The Opposite Sex (1956) (Blu-ray)

    The Opposite Sex was on TCM last night in stereo, but I think it was the old, unrestored version.

    Blu-ray Review Flower Drum Song Blu-ray Review

    I watched it last night and thought it looked and sounded wonderful. Plus the picture was centered (particularly noticeable in the opening credits). It wasn't centered on the DVD release or any of the TCM showings I've caught. I'm so excited to have it!

    The Color Purple (Musical Remake) (2023)

    I saw Fantasia do the show on Broadway. She was truly astounding and totally became her character in a completely selfless performance. It was unforgettable.

    Criterion Blu-ray titles!

    Shouldn’t a Fox CinemaScope movie from this period like “The Girl Can’t Help It“ have a four-track magnetic soundtrack (Criterion says “uncompressed monaural soundtrack”)?

    Where's High Society on Blu Ray Warner's?

    I just noticed that Fathom Events is having "65th Anniversary" showings of "High Society" in November. I'm hoping that bodes well for a blu-ray.

    Alexa/Amazon Music/Amazon Echo issue

    I have been very happy with the quality and selection of Amazon Music and the sound from my two Echo Studio speakers that I have stereo paired. In the last few days, the system has been emitting a loud CLICK/POP sound before every track (always annoying, but particularly annoying during...

    Marilyn Monroe best album collections on cd?

    In my opinion, this is the best one. It's out of print and kind of pricey, but used ones are reasonably priced. It was on DRG. You could probably get it at a library.

    Actually, I have wandered in off the street and have been able to watch things at the Lincoln Center Library. Normally you need to make a reservation, but if they're not busy you can search the catalog and fill out a form offering a reason that you need to see the performance (I think I said...

    Please forgive me if this has been answered already. Amazon has two listings. Is the Amazon "free for Prime members" version the same as the $3.99 HD rental version?

    I also completely agree with Mark. Something I haven't seen mentioned is the inclusion of all four prologue songs from the 1929 version (the laserdisc only contained Tess Gardella's numbers). Seeing Helen Morgan sing "Bill" up close and live is pretty mind-blowing. And Jules Bledsoe's "Ol' Man...

    Not necessarily. Here in Cincy, all the lower-numbered channels are now HD, but the fact that channel 53 is the only channel listed is a concern.

    TCM: Finally in Real HD?

    Spectrum here in Cincinnati is HD. But it used to be Time-Warner. The picture and sound actually markedly improved recently.
