    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Damn Yankees – in Blu-ray

    Yep, it has a psychedelic art design and they overused Pythonesque animation tricks and cut out the rousing dance section of "Shoeless Joe," in its place, battle footage from old silent movies. But it's easy to find on youtube:

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

    At 327 episodes, does that make it the largest single blu-ray release ever?

    Upcoming slate of 4k releases 2021 (all studios)

    Interested in what they do with Wonka. I always felt the soundtrack was weak. Some of the high end stuff is shrill--the soundtrack can't take properly take strings and woodwinds. But it's always been like that. I think it was released in monaural originally and only remixed to stereo for home...

    TV on DVD news roundup

    Yep, now we can have the whole Stargate canon on blu. I'm still holding out on reviews for SG-1. I was also starting to worry about "Legacies" which a nice show and a worthy follow up to its two parent series. This season is overdue by about 4 or 5 months. Went ahead and pre-ordered it, and it...

    So Bad They're Fun movies we still want on Blu-ray

    I like bad movies that I used to watch on HBO over and over in the 80s. Kino has put out a lot of those, but I still need: Midnight Madness The Pirate Movie Both probably unlikely because they're both owned by Disney. But I wonder if maybe one of these Disney will stoop to license out titles...

    Scott Atwell Star Trek Discussion thread (Series and Films)

    Quite agreed. I never thought of that solution before. I still don't think it would have been a classic if Spock was the one who shanghaied the Enterprise into that situation, but it would have played a lot more smoothly.

    2021 TV DVD Guesses?

    Likely choices, I think. They're both still popular and both short-lived; shouldn't take too much to get them out on blu if Universal so desires.

    Soap operas

    I used to work on "Days," from what I heard, Corday Productions preserved all the original videotapes since the beginning.

    Is Twilight Time Making A Comeback?

    Little interest in Grind house, Schlock or exploitation films and of course that's what everybody else seems to want these days. Once in a while Kino will put out a really crummy comedy that I saw on HBO a thousand times, and I will buy it. Otherwise, I want the classics, which TT delivered...

    Warner Archive Press Release: The Pajama Game (1957) (Blu-ray)

    It's back up for pre-order at Amazon. Date is 1/26, same as "Good News."

    Warner Archive Press Release: The Pajama Game (1957) (Blu-ray)

    Was Pajama Game once PD? I've seen dvds of it in Walmart $1 bins. I also think Damn Yankees would be the most amazing follow up for the Archives, if they can do it.

    Warner Archive Press Release: Good News (1947) (Blu-ray)

    I think June Allyson is the only MGM star I ever actually met. She was a sweetie; she came into a department store I was working at in the 80s. Gave me her autograph which I still have. And what was interesting about it, is that I literally had learned her name for the first time in my life just...

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

    Updated: Now it says it will arrive Monday 12/07. If they ran out, then it will have to go back to press which is always a good thing for the Archives. There is a demand for oldies on blu!

    Vaudeville references in Singin´ in the Rain?

    The rest were, I think, not actual Vaudeville songs because "Fit as a Fiddle" was written by Arthur Freed.

    Vaudeville references in Singin´ in the Rain?

    I'm pretty sure the montage songs were from old MGM musicals of the late 20s. "Wedding of the Painted Doll" was from Broadway Melody of 1929 for instance:

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Bugs Bunny 80th Anniversary Collection – in Blu-ray

    I can outlive this box o'junk. I don't care what they do. And I also don't think it's easy to watch these types of compilations because they skip around in years and directors. I had a hard time sitting through the Golden collections because of this.

    Warner Archive Press Release: The Harvey Girls (1948) (Blu-ray)

    There's still a lot of MGM Technicolor musicals I'd like to see. The list is getting smaller though. Show Boat Annie Get Your Gun DuBarry Was a Lady Ziegfield Follies The Student Prince Good News Jupiter's Darling Two Weeks With Love Any fans of that last one? It's a great family comedy in the...

    The Carol Burnett Show - Complete Series on Shout Factory TV

    Not really. Maybe it's just that the people who created this music want to be paid for it.

    A Question About Tobe Hooper's Poltergeist on Blu...

    Well, they're still making Ghostbusters movies. They did a remake of Poltergeist in 2015 but it didn't catch on.
