Received my Blu-ray of Little Rascals/Our Gang Vol. 6 yesterday and the PQ is amazing!

I only had time to watch two of my favorites, the first, Bored of Education and the last Roach short, Hide and Shriek. Even though Spanky is absent in the last short it's an excellent ending to Roach's participation in the series.

Another excellent job David. Thank you.

Thanks for your support, and, yes, because of the better shape of the elements Volume 6 has the best overall PQ--with the very last Roach short you mentioned having likely the sharpest shot OF ALL 80 SHORTS (at least in the top 3) right at the very end (below).

If you've never seen it, DOWN THREE DARK STREETS (1954), a film we restored in its OAR and released on BD will be playing on Noir Alley this weekend. Below is a trailer we cut for it upon it's release.

Also know that we have not renewed our license on the film (and other MGM titles) and it is officially out of print, but we will be holding one last MGM OOP sale next month on our site before we remove them completely.

Speaking of the '50s MGM titles, I just re-watched my Five Steps to Danger blu ray this past weekend. So glad you guys released this.

Thanks for this! Bob did you ever think of restoring Meet John Doe since you found the OCN?

No, the 35mm nitrate OCN was acquired by the Packard Humanities Institute and a restoration was done by Sony.
No-one does restorations better than Sony! Many thanks for your efforts on this. I look forward to a Blu-ray disc in the not-too-distant future!

To the folks at ClassicFlix, when do you expect the second and final season of the A&C Show to become available on the Blu-Ray and DVD formats to complete that series as I'm looking forward to seeing the newly-restored versions of those classic episodes?

Production delays. It's in replication and we hope to have it in house by the 12th, at which point it will ship out to crowdfund backers immediately. Those who have purchased at ClassicFlix.com will have their ship out on the 25th (day before release).

The trailer will likely be posted between the 15th and 20th of this month.
