Michael Apted has passed away
I recently watched all the UP documentaries. A fantastic, unrepeatable achievement.
Also just watched Continental Divide.
Fred Willard - talented comedian passes away from natural causes.

R.I.P. Jerry Herman
Musical creator of Hello Dolly, Mame, Mack&Mabel, and La Cage Aux Folles (among others)
A talent that will be missed
Over the past few years we have been blessed to see most of the big Frank Capra titles released on Blu-Ray

Just saw a listing of Electric Dreams on Blu on Amazon UK.
Releasing company is Second Sight Films, the same company that put it out on DVD a few years ago.

Let me start by thanking WB for releasing the first three Golden Collections which I bought and have enjoyed immensely. I also plan to purchase volume 4 when it is released. However, all of us have favorites that haven't made it to tiny, shiny disc yet. Since we are over a year away from...
