    I've been wondering if these films on Twilight Time Blu-ray (now sold out) were sourced from 2K and/or 4K restorations. Maybe someone can help me here. These are the films:

    Why is no one answering this? Not to be rude, but I'm asking for a little help here from anybody.

    Probably because most of us don't remember as it's been years since most of those Blu-rays came out. Also, quite frankly and TBH, I don't care enough to research it because I'm very happy with six of those seven Blu-rays. One of them I don't own on disc because I didn't care for the movie.

    I'm asking because there may be a chance that these movies might be released on Blu-ray again (and not through Twilight Time). One of the titles that was reviewed on this site (BELL, BOOK AND CANDLE) was once released on Blu-ray by Twilight in 2012, sold out, and then came back to Blu-ray from Sony last month. I think the Sony release uses the same transfer from the Twilight release.

    This forum isn't the customer service line for Twilight Time; you can't expect or demand that anyone give you an answer in 7 hours or less.

    Should have bought Our Man Flint & In Like Flint before they were sold out. I hope the two movies will get a second chance on Blu-ray.

    Excuse me, but I was not demanding an answer. I just wondered if anyone knew.

    It’s probably best that you didn’t reveal which one because I have a sneaky suspicion that it would be my favorite of the seven! :D

    I swear you once mentioned you didn't much care for either Born Yesterday or Love Is A Many Splendored Thing. I can't remember which one. Am I wrong?

    They've just been released in France, sans the TT extras, but I'm sure the same transfer. I bought Our Man Flint & am happy with it (I have the TT release of In Like Flint). I don't know about regions, the box states region B, but someone over at blu-ray.com said that the company, BQHL Éditions, tend to release multi-region discs, but I don't know about these films.

    I neither know nor care. Why should I? It's the picture and sound quality that matters, not whether it's was 2K or 4K.

    Chris, I can’t comment on the scanning resolution, but your thread has morphed nicely into a playground for a new game: ‘Which of these movies does Crawdaddy hate?’

    So if you don’t mind, I’d like to play... but first, l’ll observe that a few of these titles have already been released on Blu in other territories: Picnic (Eureka) and Born Yesterday (Arrow) in the UK, and The Way We Were (mainly Sony) just about everywhere.

    Now to the all-important game...

    Couldn’t imagine it would be Born Yesterday, as it features Broderick Crawford. It ought to be Picnic (William Holden completely miscast in my view... under Joshua Logan’s direction), but I suspect it is The Way We Were - I just don’t see Crawdaddy as the Streisand type, but then again, what do I know?

    I don't hate movies, I might dislike some movies, but I rarely use the word "hate" towards any movie. As for the movie in question, it just doesn't have any re-watch value to me except for a few scenes.

    You don't know much about me because I always had a thing about Streisand and the "The Way We Were" holds a special place in my heart due to sentimental reasons from my youth. However, I do think William Holden was miscast in "Picnic" as he was just too old for the role, but the movie did have Kim Novak so I always was fond enough of the movie to own it in various video formats.

    Big buzzer sounds.

    Over to the next contestant.

    The prize purse halves as the candidate pool of movies diminishes.

    This game has real potential.

    I'll take a shot -- I SPY that Robert isn't a big fan of Giallo style movies as in much of Classic Arrow Video type releases (Maniac, Toolbox Murders, Driller Killer, Herschell Gordon Lewis style).

    Probably not useful in the TT thread, but I'll take a gamble on an outside style

    I have two of those you mention. CAT BALLOU, and PICNIC. Both look very good , but to my eyes neither looks like 4k restorations . But , I'm not an expert on this subject .

    If they were smart they'd bring them back for a limited time. I've got several and they are always excellent.
