When a severely depressed fashion photographer (Elliott Gould – M*A*S*H, The Long Goodbye, California Split) meets an optimistic young woman (Marcia Rodd – Citizens Band, Last Embrace), she is determined to save him amidst the series of random muggings, sniper shootings, garbage strikes and total blackouts that are ravaging the city of New York.

    (Paul Newman, 1972)
    Release date: 23 April 2018
    Limited Blu-ray Edition (UK Blu-ray premiere)

    Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Paul Zindel, Paul Newman’s second film as director stars his wife Joanne Woodward (Three Faces of Eve, Sybil) as an abusive, over-bearing mother raising her two daughters (Nell Potts and Roberta Wallach) in an atmosphere of bitterness and hatred. The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds is a powerful, searingly unsentimental and ultimately transformative drama, with a trio of towering performances from the three female leads at its core.

    (Roger Corman, 1967)
    Release date: 23 April 2018
    Limited Blu-ray Edition (UK Blu-ray premiere)

    Roger Corman’s most ambitious and expensive production – his only film for a major studio – is a violent and lurid account of the events leading up to one of the most infamous events in American crime history. Detailing the bitter and brutal rivalry between feuding Chicago mob bosses Al Capone and ‘Bugs’ Moran, Corman’s vividly realised film features terrific performances from Jason Robards, Ralph Meeker and George Segal, and remains one of Corman’s best films.

    • Original mono audio

    (Joseph L Mankiewicz, 1959)
    Release date: 23 April 2018
    Limited Blu-ray Edition (UK Blu-ray premiere)

    Directed by Joseph L Mankiewicz (Dragonwyck, All About Eve, Cleopatra) from the play by Tennessee Williams (A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof) and brilliantly adapted for the screen by Gore Vidal (Ben-Hur, Myra Breckinridge), Suddenly, Last Summer casts three of Hollywood’s most iconic talents (Elizabeth Taylor, Katharine Hepburn, Montgomery Clift) in a daring and often delirious mix of lurid drama and Gothic horror. Sensational and wildly controversial at the time of its release, Suddenly, Last Summer now stands as a classic – and stills packs a provocative punch.

    • Original mono audio

    I haven't picked up the Twilight Time Suddenly Last Summer yet so I might opt for Indicator's release as the extras are plentiful unlike TT's edition. The others don't interest me.

    LITTLE MURDERS is incredible. Some of the extras repeat from the DVD; strange that Arkin isn't involved. (He directed just one other film.) Twilight Time has the other three but SUDDENLY, LAST SUMMER does have plentiful extras.

    I have the Twilight Times discs of both Suddenly, Last Summer and The St. Valentine's Day Massacre! Two truly excellent transfers which I recommend to anyone who's interested in these films. I'm assuming these new U. K. discs are using the same transfers.

    Alas, Indicator's release of The Inspector (released as Lisa in the U.S.) which was due out this week was pushed back and the new release date given is July 30, 2018.

    That's the downside. There's no shipping notification or tracking. The good news is that they use Royal Mail as opposed to Iparcel. I received The Passenger from them yesterday which had a street date of March 19.

    I'm very disappointed by this. I received notification from Zavvi about the delay but when I tried to interrogate Signal One's website for a revised release date, I drew a complete blank. As the end of July is some way off, there's a chance this may come out via Kino or Twilight Time before then.

    A little clarification here for those (like me) initially confused. The movie Lisa (1962) is in no way connected with the 1990 film (featuring Staci Keenan) of the same name.

    curious, i know some comedy works well in some places, and not so well in others, how big is The Stooges fanbase in the UK, it just seems such a shame with all the work and restorations not to get a real HD presentation, this wold be one of the companies i could see doing, something like releasing the Volumes, and maybe some of the films as well,
