    Buck Jones THE ROARING WEST, VCI

    Just got this in....another of the new transfers by VCI from Universal's elements. Looks great for a raw scan. Unfortunately, it is BD-R over 2 discs....at least from Amazon. The last one of these I bought (THE VANISHING SHADOW) was a pressed disc. Curiously, THE ROARING WEST DVD was...

    Indicator's FOOTSTEPS IN THE FOG

    Kino/Zeitgeist BOMBSHELL

    Just a quick note for anyone who might be interested regarding this week's blu-ray release of BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY. I'm a big fan of old Hollywood and love documentaries on the subject. This one is really well done and fascinating. It surprised me in many ways. I knew about the...
