    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    Does the new Kino of "Witness for the Prosecution" have the freeze-frame titles over the sword etc above the judge's chair in the courtroom? The original (at least here in the UK) DVD release had this as a travelling shot, finishing with a close-up of the sword etc. Just curious to see if anyone...

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - Frenzy -- in 4k UHD

    "Waltzes from Vienna" was released on DVD (along with "It's Love Again") in the UK as part of a Jessie Matthews double bill by the now-defunct Network label in an indifferent print but there is an official French Universal DVD issue "Le Chant du Danube" that is far superior in quality. I have...

    Warner DVD's not working thread - watch to make sure they still play

    I did buy Don Juan on blu-ray to replace my faulty DVD but I can ill afford to spend money replacing all the faulty Warner Archive pressed DVDs in my collection. It seems to be extremely frustrating trying to contact anyone at Warners that seem to be able to respond/care about their customers...

    Warner DVD's not working thread - watch to make sure they still play

    Really disappointed in Warner Archive - I have quite a few discs of theirs that are no longer playable (all from 2006 - 3007 era) and after emailing them back in May giving them a list of the unplayable ones, I did receive a reply stating that they could supply me with some of them as...

    Regarding the "camera trickery" in the finale number of "Ziegfeld Girl" that Capt D McMars mentions, I presume this refers to the substitution of Judy Garland for Virginia Bruce at the top of the huge revolving staircase set they built for "The Great Ziegfeld" in 1946, the footage of which was...

    Blu-ray Review Blue Skies Blu-ray Review

    Got mine from WowHD. As I said in my original post, the replacement link didn't seem to work on my desktop iMac but it did on my iPad Air. (And, yes, I got an acknowledgment email just after I managed to send the form). Good for Kino - if they do send me a replacement here in the UK!

    Unfortunately, when I try to fill in the form, as soon as I fill in my country (United Kingdom) - the "submit" button at the foot of the form disappears, making it impossible to send. Can this be amended as I desperately want to receive the replacement blu ray. Edit: It didn't work on my iMac...

    Blu-ray Review Gold Diggers of 1933 Blu-ray Review

    It was planned (and the song was pre-recorded) for the song to be performed by Ginger Rogers in the film. Not sure if it was ever filmed but the pre-recording disc exists and is featured on the Rhino 2 CD Busby Berkeley set. It would - for me - have been the icing on the cake regarding this...

    DVD Profiler 4.0.0 is out.

    Is anyone else having problems accessing the Invelos site? I tried to add a blu-day yesterday on my iPad and had no luck and there's no response from the main Invelos website today.

    Blu-ray Review Lullaby of Broadway Blu-ray Review

    I also enjoy the references in the film to earlier Warners musicals - near the beginning the musical being produced is called "Pretty Lady" (the title of the musical being done in "42nd Street") and the tribute to Buzz Berkeley at the start of the "Lullaby of Broadway" finale with Doris' spotlit...

    The quality of this isn't up to the standard of the French DVD. I have both and far prefer the French release. https://www.fnac.com/a1937776/Le-Chant-du-Danube-Esmond-Knight-DVD-Zone-2 Alistair

    Press Release Warner Archive Press Release: Ziegfeld Follies (1945) (Blu-ray)

    "Night and Day"? - if you're referring to Broadway Melody of 1940, maybe you're thinking of "Begin the Beguine" - the former isn't in the film.

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ The Lost Weekend – in Blu-ray

    Just so we are clear here - "MIdnight" was helmed by the under-rated director, Mitchell Leisen, with a Wilder/Brackett script. I agree that it deserves a Blu-ray release - it's a frothy gem of a film.
