    I hope an announcement for DR. TERROR happens soon, as it is Peter Cushing's centennial celebration this year (and is rightfully being celebrated in the UK).

    I also would like 3 Ring Circus on blu-ray together with their other VistaVision titles. I am a bit surprised at the slow rate that VistaVision titles are being released on blu-ray considering that the large format films are generally producing the best blu-rays. If Paramount/Warners do not want to release the higher profile titles perhaps they should give them all to Olive.

    I'm not saying you're right or wrong, but have you seen this blu-ray specifically, as opposed to making a statement on past observations? The reason I ask is because I do try to learn on this forum and Robert Harris has stated "when Mr. Harwood adds his thoughts to this forum, they should be taken seriously." I have heeded his words.

    I've seen the McLintock blu-ray. The picture is all right, though frankly I think the DVD looks better. It's the audio that's just awful. When it's not covered up by music you hear that background racket you get on those old flicks (some silent, some not) that TCM runs late nights on the weekend. I'd call it white noise but it's not electronic/electric in nature. In any event, it's very annoying. I don't expect that on a 1963-vintage film.

    That's pretty clearly a film element issue.

    That's what I assumed but they have had good masters so far and this has been the first one with this poor of a transfer. I've watched all of Duke's new BR's at least 5 times each and other then a couple that were poor quality this was the first with an actual flaw transfer.

    Has anybody investigated the running time of the 1958 Miserables? The French DVD is 217 minutes long. Interesting difference between this and the 188 minute Olive release.

    A poster on another forum claimed the Olive release is missing eight sequences.

    Update: a trustworthy poster on a French forum says the French DVD is 179, not 217 minutes. Then another trustworthy
    poster on the same forum checked the home page for the French Pathé company, which lists it as a two-part film (to be shown together) running 210 mins.

    And Stuart Galbraith IV, in his review over at DVDTalk, speculates that the 210 and 217 min. runtimes reported by Leonard Maltin and others are due to overture, entr´acte and exit music tracks etc. though that material can hardly make up for the difference.

    I just read on this informative Westerns blog

    http://fiftieswesterns.wordpress.com/

    that Olive Films has the blu-ray rights to another Regalscope western, Ambush At Cimarron Pass (1958) featuring a lanky young Clint Eastwood. So I looked it up on imdb and sure enough Olive is listed for DVD and blu-ray. Perhaps they'll release it after Showdown At Boot Hill (June 18) sells a few copies.

    [​IMG]

    Regal Films were a low-budget arm of Fox that shot blatantly commercial films for $100,000 or less in 6 days or less on the backlot. The films were in monochrome and widescreen and seldom ran over 75 minutes. There were juvenile deilnquent films, horror films, sci-fi films, noirs, and of course westerns. Some weren't half bad, and all were well-made.

    Due to some unforeseen issues the Audio Commentary for HANGAR 18 was dropped from the Olive Films release. The DVD and BD will not have any extras.

    Man with all the great Olive releases and all the great Shout/Scream releases...I'm going to need a second job. Also now that Warner is re-releasing some great stuff on blu and all of the great WAC titles...man my wife is gonna kill me :p So many great releases this year. It's a great time to be a lover of older catalog titles.

    Yes we must keep up the pressure for 3 Ring Circus, another important VistaVision title.
