    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Fox Cinema Archives - DVD

    Zanuck must be weeping in his grave at what his decendants have done to his legacy. (He decreed that all TCF films under his regime would be done in CinemaSccope). Wasserman would be furious at the indifference of Universal to his historic purchase of the pre-1950 Paramount catalog. Fox and...

    Coming Soon From Olive Films

    A good print of COME NEXT SPRING is available on Amazon-on-Demand. The film is a remarkable piece of Americana and the underrated Steve Cochran and Ann Sheridan are both terrific playing against type. Many Olive releases-past and forthcoming are available free on Amazon Prime On Demand.

    Warner Archive Discussion Thread (The Announcements/The Films)

    I suspect that GIRLS TOWN i is owned by Olive Films (it's part of the Republic catalogue). GIRLS' TOWN and HIGH SCHOOL CONFIDENTAL were both brought out on VHS and HSC was brought out on dvd,but the other Zugsmith produced titles (THE BIG OPERATOR, COLLEGE CONFIDENTIAL, THE PRIVATE LIVES OF ADAM...

    Sea Hunt

    Video quality is exemplary. The show itself is ingenuous from a financial point of view (2/3 of the show is underwater and Lloyd Bridges' narration gives it a semi-documentary quality. No big" guest stars" like many of the other shows of the period (except Dorthy, Beau, and Jeff, Robert Conrad...

    Universal: How about Alan Ladd, Ray Milland, Gary Cooper #2 Boxset & Ronald Colman

    .....And William Holden? THOSE WERE THE DAYS, I WANTED WINGS, THE REMARKABLE ANDREW, THE FLEET'S IN, BLAZE AT NOON, DEAR RUTH, STREETS OF LAREDO, ? It would be nice if they brought out the all-star VARIETY GIRL (1947). It did come out on VHS.

    Does anyone know who (the Hope estate?) controls THAT CERTAIN FEELING and BEAU JAMES--neither of which has appeared on home video? BEAU JAMES is to Hope what THE JOKER IS WILD is to Sinatra. Speaking of which it is also MIA although it is available on Amazon-on-Demand.

    TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX HOME ENTERTAINMENT DEBUTS Manufacture-On-Demand DVD SERIES

    NIGHT PEOPLE on Demand is panned and scanned (hey, it rhymes). They showed a beautiful CinemaScoped print of William Holden's THE LION (1962). The first time TCM showed the film it was p & s. It is an interesting comparison with the Alain Delon tv movie (which is available VOD).

    Coming Soon From Olive Films

    Even better is THE SENATOR WAS INDISCREET (1947), the only film ever directed by George S. Kaufman. Powell is superb and the final scene is one of the greatest (self-referential) Hollywood endings.
