    The 87th Precinct

    Timeless Media is releasing The 87th Precinct (1961-1962) The Complete Series on 8/7. Did anyone see that coming? (By the by I was very impressed by GOING MY WAY but have not seen any reviews of it).

    THE NINA FOCH PROJECT

    This may be a bit out of the loop of Movies and Television, but I strongly recommend it. Bankrolled by George Lucas, THE NINA FOCH COURSE FOR FILMMAKERS AND ACTORS is a three hour, two disc dvd culled from 200 hours of footage from Nina Foch's legendary courses at the USC school of Cinematic...

    MONTE WALSH (1970)?

    Both DVD Empire and Amazon are listing MONTE WALSH (1970)--the Lee Marvin, not the Tom Selleck one--for release on 11/16........and from Paramount?????!!!!!. Is there any explanation for this? My guess is that they stumbled over an old crate of these in their warehouse from five or six years ago.

    MIA: A SPENCER TRACY BOX SET FROM WB

    Louis B. Mayer claimed that the three greatest MGM stars were Greta Garbo, Marie Dressler, and Spencer Tracy. Isn't about time that WB brought out a collection of Tracy films: the two remaining Tracy-Hepburn films (KEEPER OF THE FLAME, SEA OF GRASS), historical extravaganzas (NORTHWEST...

    LAST HOLIDAY sans Queen Latifah

    The original 1950 LAST HOLIDAY with Alec Guinness is being released on 6/16 as part of Criterion's Art House Essentials (a title that is new to dvd unlike the other Criterion titles in this line). The film contains one of the great Alec Guinness performances and the disposable remake subverts...

    NOTHING FROM FOX after THE ROBE?

    Fox has become my favorite studio, but after the ballsiest release in the history of dvds (the Fox/Murneau/Borzage Collection), we've heard no classic announcements other than THE ROBE. No Noir, Westerns, Musicals, War movies,Alice Faye, Betty Grable, the Ritz Bros, A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN...

    SUSPENSE and STUDIO ONE ANTHOLOGY

    TV Shows on DVD announcing that the remaining 30 episodes of the "lost" episodes of SUSPENSE will be coming out in 2009. March 17 is offered as a tentative date. Has anyone seen any internet reviews of the STUDIO ONE ANTHOLOGY? It's a fabulous set with terrific bonus features (featurettes...

    MICHAEL POWELL DOUBLE FEATURE

    The Digital Bits is reporting 1/6 as the release date for the Michael Powell Double Feature: AGE OF CONSENT (Extended cut)/STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN (Isn't A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH the preferred title?).

    AFI TRIBUTES

    On the new NOTORIOUS dvd, there is a poignant, tantalizing--but all-too-brief clip from the AFI Tribute to Alfred Hitchcock. I seem to recall that Hitchcock in the year before his death did not recognize Sean Connery (MARNIE). On the MISTER ROBERTS, there is a clip from the Cagney AFI tribute...

    Alfred Hitchcock Presents--Season 4?

    With all the buzz on the "Movies" forum about Hitchcock collections, shouldn't there be an announcement for the fourth season of AH Presents from Universal? The CEs of REAR WINDOW, VERTIGO, and PSYCHO each contain an episode from AHP too.

    FOX HORROR CLASSICS: VOLUME II

    Classicflix.com announced that volume 2 of FOX HORROR CLASSICS (DRAGONWYCK, CHANDU THE MAGICIAN, DR. RENAULT'S SECRET) is being released on 9/9. No details were announced, but I suspect that it will be similar to Volume I.

    THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER: COLLECTOR'S EDITION

    Classicflix.com has a post for a 9/9 release of THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER: COLLECTORS EDITION. There are no specific details, but from the retail price ($26.99), I would suspect that it's a 2 discer. Hopefully, it would include some of the footage of Laughton directing the film (7 hours+?) that...

    UA NOIRS

    Last summer (perhaps under the auspices of Fox), four excellent titles (A BULLET FOR JOEY, THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW, and de-pded THE STRANGER and KANSAS CITY CONFIDENTIAL) were released on dvd from the UA catalog. I'd love to see official versions of SUDDENLY, REIGN OF TERROR, and JIGSAW released...

    Hell Just Froze Over....

    Apparently the release of VILLA RIDES is not pd: if it is, it's a widescreen pd. And the pd company is also releasing on 6/3: KING OF THE GYPSIES. THOSE DARING YOUNG MEN IN THEIR JAUNTY JALOPSIES, STUDENT BODIES, THE ONE AND ONLY, THE OPTOMISTS, THE POSSESSION OF JOEL DELANEY, THE WHOOPEE BOYS...

    VILLA RIDES!

    Movies Unlimited is listing 6/3 as a release date for VILLA RIDES! (Mitchum, Brynner, script by Peckinpah and Robert Towne). I don't see anything similar--and it's listed under "Historical and War"-- but could this be a harbinger of a WB Western Collection?

    RICHARD WIDMARK COLLECTION?

    I've always admired Fox for their creativity in packaging concepts (John Brahm Horror Collections), series (Moto, Chan, Mike Shayne). stars (Tyrone Power, Joan Collins, Bette Davis), and literature (Hemingway), but there remains plenty of films from one of their most important contract players...

    THE DAVID LEAN COLLECTION

    DVDBeaver mentioned last year that MGM would be bringing out (FINALLY??????!!!!!) the David Lean Collection (THIS HAPPY BREED, MADELINE, GREAT EXPECTATIONS, THE PASSIONATE FRIENDS, IN WHICH WE SERVE, OLIVER TWIST, BRIEF ENCOUNTER, BLITHE SPIRIT). Is their any word that if and when this will be...

    ROSALIND RUSSELL?

    I am surprised that no one has suggested the possibility of a Rosalind Russell collection(s?). While she has been represented on dvd by GYPSY, PICNIC, THE WOMEN, and AUNTIE MAME, the range of her performances has not been tapped by dvd: Melodrama (THE VELVET TOUCH, NIGHT MUST FALL), Biography...

    MGM (UA) SPECTACLES

    DVD Empire and Movies Unlimited are listing a release date of March 25 for the dvd debuts of TARAS BULBA, SOLOMON AND SHEBA, and KINGS OF THE SUN.

    NIGHT TRAIN TO MUNICH

    In the wake of Criterion's upgrade of THE LADY VANISHES, I was wondering why NIGHT TRAIN TO MUNICH has never been brought out on DVD. It certainly would have been a more relevent addition to the new Criterion dvd than CROOK'S TOUR and Basil Radford and Naunton Wayne actually reprise their roles...

    OTTO PREMINGER

    I notice that TCM is showing Otto Preminger's SKIDOO in January. Apparently there is a deal to show 150 Paramount films (many of which have not aired on TV in ages). Since there is a new book out on Preminger (THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING by Foster Hirsch), it would be great if...
