    Foyle's War Season 8 (UK Series 9) - March 3, 2015

    Got an email from Acorn TV today that another Foyle's War series (3 episodes) will air exclusively on Acorn TV streaming service in February 2015. Similar to the final 3 episodes of Poirot. Presumably could show up at a later date on local PBS stations if they purchase them. Acorn's website...

    I don't know if this has been posted somewhere already, but a complete kinescope recording of the famous Game 7 of the 1960 World Series, in which Bill Mazeroski's walk-off (before that term was invented) HR beat the mighty Yankees at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh, was found in Bing Crosby's (who...

    Import versions of two 1954 MGM musicals?

    Both with Ann Blyth. I usually patiently wait for U.S. Region 1 releases. Don't have much experience ordering imported DVDs. But I was wondering if anybody here owns the imported DVD versions noted below and could comment on them. First, THE STUDENT PRINCE (1954). There appears to be a...

    The Strauss Family (1972) mini-series?

    I was doing a little internet searching for this mini-series that I only vaguely remember but would like to see again. It seems there have been VHS boxsets in the past that you can get from ebay or elsewhere. Also, a PAL Region 2 DVD 3-disc set was released by Acorn in the UK in July 2007...

    RIP - Deborah Kerr (1921-2007)

    I was just watching Young Bess (1953), in which Deborah Kerr plays Catherine Parr, last night (recorded off TCM). Then I was saddened this morning to read that she died. She was a fine actress and singer (The King and I, An Affair to Remember, etc.)...

    Disney "Hunchback" DVD won't play

    I bought the Disney DVD of The Hunchback of Notre Dame way back when it first was released (March 2002). We've played it a number of times without a problem, but not lately. Today my daughter wanted to watch it. We put it in my Panasonic RP-91 player and it would not load. Actually, it loaded...

    Where's Dave?

    I realized that I hadn't seen any posts by the previously ubiquitous David Lambert recently. Checking his member profile shows that he hasn't posted since Feb. 5, a whole month. So, who chased Dave away? Come back, Sha.., er, Dave!

    Les Miserables - The Dream Cast in Concert (Superbit)

    I have the previous DVD release of this 10th anniversary concert. I've never been too impressed with the video quality. I haven't watched it for awhile, but I think it's fullframe (or at most non-anamorphic letterboxed). I'll have to check on that at home. Now I see that a Superbit version is...

    DVDfile.com and others are reporting that Columbia-Tristar will release the 1966 film Born Free and its sequel on 3/4/2003. This is a 2.35:1 film -- you don't think they would dare release it full-frame only, do you?
