What happened? I asked the director on Facebook, he didn't know why it was dropped.
Has Samuel Fuller's director's cut of Shark ever been released, as opposed to the producer's cut?
MisterLime -- the press kit for Fedora has interesting info about the dubbing of Fedora´s (Marthe Keller) and the Countess´s (Hildegard Knef) dialogue. Inga Bunsch dubbed the English version, Marthe Keller the French and Hildegard Knef the German version. Seems Bunsch dubbed both Keller and Knef in English -- but the wording is unclear.
Any chance of multiple soundtracks for the Olive Films release?

Previously Released DVD Titles - First Time on Blu-ray - Coming out in July - $24.95SRP - Same as the DVD
Great, Harlow. I got the DVD and will upgrade.
Answering a few of the questions above...
THREE RING CIRCUS will not be released by Olive Films.
Only one version of SHARK exists. The extra scenes were probably destroyed by the film's producers in the 60s.
FEDORA will be released later this year with the 1 hour Making-of doc - The audio will be the same audio as the Warner Brothers version released in the 70s
I don't know why the HANGAR 18 audio commentary was dropped.
Thanks, Mister Lime. Personally, I would love to see a blu release of Olive's Bob Hope releases (My Favorite Spy and Off Limits).
Thanks for the information!
I really hope we get Dr. Terrors House of Horrors ( and with the commentary) and Beware my Lovely soon ..these are high on my want lists...
I am also excited about the Big Combo and Sleep my Love coming down the pike
Thanks for the info, MisterLime!
Do you know if both cuts of God´s Little Acre will be released? One is longer an unrated. A French company, Wild Side, released both cuts on their DVD.
And it looks SO good in widescreen!
TCM shows it in a very good looking widescreen transfer. There must be a good master floating out there.
Olive Films - July Releases - More to come...
Answering a few questions...
The Bob Hope films will be released on BLU-RAY very soon. Also, everything else from the Paramount library will be released on BLU-RAY very soon, with the exception of FACE TO FACE which only has a standard def master acquired from Studio Canal - by far the best elements available anywhere.
They will also release, ICI ET AILLEUR, NUMERO DEUX and POLICE on BLU-RAY.
All the other titles are on the schedule and should be coming out as soon as they're ready. GOD'S LITTLE ACRE should be in July.
How about Looking for Mr.Goodbar, The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, The Keep and The Grey Fox on Blu?
Olive Films is truly doing a great job with the Republic and Paramount catalog. Any chance that they can strike another deal once the rest of the films are released so that they can acquire more content?
Too bad about Face to Face, but overall that's fantastic news!
IIRC, the issue here is music rights. I don't know if any of Paramount's catalog distributors (Warner, Olive, Criterion) would be able to resolve this.
Please be attentive to releasing films in the correct aspect ratio.
Paramount changed to 100% widescreen cinematography on March 24, 1953. Initially composing for 1.66:1, they changed to 1.85:1 on September 21, 1953.
Republic switched to 1.66:1 on May 15, 1953.
Please note: these are production dates, not release dates.
I can answer any questions on the correct ratio and will be glad to assist.
Also, don't forget titles like The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell which wasn't a Republic or Paramount title originally. It's production company was United States Pictures and was distributed by Warner. It was filmed during the summer of 1955, and should be widescreen, I thought it was a cinemascope film with the awful WarnerColor process.
