    I'm not. Re-mixing a mono film into stereo is as bad as colorizing a B&W film in my opinion. I'm just glad the Paramount DVD offered the original mono as well as the "stereo" mix otherwise I'd be upgrading to the Olive release for the original mono sound.

    DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS, huh? Hope that's accurate, as I'd love to see the restoration finally.

    The shipping delays were caused by a huge fulfillment center mistake. Everything was ready to go in time for the 3/26 street date, but all these orders were missed by the shipping center and they realized their mistake after the titles had already streeted. They shipped everything last week (a couple of days after the street date), so everything should be up very soon. This was not because of replication delays, it was just a HUGE shipping or non-shipping error.

    MisterLime, any chance of Olive licensing Sleuth (orig.) and The Heartbreak Kid from Palomar Pictures?

    I hope Olive can work something out with Ignite and the other owner of TRIFFIDS for a release soon.

    Is the restoration of TRIFFIDS done, or still in progress? Last I heard I thought I was still being worked on.

    For me and I suspect for many others too, that is really exciting news. I'll pre-order all three titles at the first opportunity. Thank you for the info.

    It's been done for a while. I think it was shown at a TCM festival in '09 or '10.

    I'd like to put in a new request for Olive to reconsider releasing Jess Franco's COUNT DRACULA for three reasons:- there is room for significant growth over the Dark Sky dvd, between image quality being subpar (I remembered incorrectly about it looking good - I'm revisiting it tonight and it's more of a mess than I recalled) and the missing bits available in other international releases. Please include 4:3 and 1.66:1 versions, too.- Jess Franco passed this week and now would be a good time to take advantage of his name being discussed among cult fans, magazines, and forums.- His films are now getting released on bd by Redemption and Kino (I think Redemption stated they have at least 14 scheduled for 2013 alone!), as well as other companies in Europe.I hope you can pass this info along to Olive, MisterLime. Thank you!

    Re: the aspect ratios for COUNT DRACULA, only include a 1.66:1 version if documentation shows this was an option. Franco often show 4:3 even when widescreen was common.

    Wow, it happened yet again: I just purchase a DVD (MEN IN WAR) only to learn a superior version is on the way. Sigh...

    Well, since you seem to have some power, I have a list of titles I'd like you to start purchasing on DVD

    :D
