    Any chance for Fassbinder's I Only Want You to Love Me being upgraded to blu-ray as well? Maybe along The Stationmaster's Wife release?

    It was in CinemaScope. The previous DVD release of The Court Martial Of Billy Mitchell by "Artisan" was in 2.35 wide screen albeit non-anamorphic despite the back jacket stating that it was a full screen version. I look forward to upgrading to the Olive DVD.

    WarnerColor was pretty bad. I just got the new "remastered" DVD from the 1955 Liberace film , Sincerely Yours, from Warner Archive. It is dual-layered so it's not bit-starved, but really looks weak and the color is pretty sickly. I hope they have better material to work with for Billy Mitchell.

    Yes, it will, sometime this year.

    STATIONMASTER WIFE will most likely be in 2014. The restoration of the uncut version has just started.

    Are Beware My Lovely and Dr. Terrors House of Horrors still on schedule for this year ?
    What about the Big Combo ?
    Also will Dr Terror have the commentary that was on the Anchor Bay DVD ? That would be so cool if it could be ported over ! :)

    Thank you so much for your response and made this Fassbinder fan happy. Can't wait for the uncut version of Stationmaster's Wife.

    They will be a bit later, maybe late 2013 or 2014. Don't know about the commentary.
    BIG COMBO should be coming out soon.

    HOME OF THE BRAVE is coming soon. RIOT IN CELL BLOCK 11 is not an Olive title - It was acquired by another company.

    That'd be a shame for Olive not to try and take advantage of the attention going on for Cushing's 100th birthday anniversary in 2013 (admittedly more notable in the UK, but US fans are aware too).

    I second all of these, especially The Keep (would be nice to see the extended Director's Cut, but I'll take the theatrical cut if that's the only way we could get it.)

    Thank you for the information. Do you know how CRY VENGEANCE and The BIG COMBO will be presented as well?

    Reuben, Reuben is released on BD next week via Olive having never had a DVD release anywhere.

    I suspect many will never have heard of this forgotten gem from the 1980's - Tom Conti gave the performance of his career as a drunken Scottish poet on tour in the US, and was rewarded with an Oscar nomination (lost out to Robert Duvall).

    If you like the Ealing Studios comedy output from the 1950's, you will love the whimsical nature of this film. I'm hoping someone here does a review of this - if nothing else, just to raise its profile.

    Peter Cushing remains a star. He sells discs. Wouldn't it be nice if one the home video distributors who controls his films exploited his 100th birthday with a set of titles for the fans with money to spend.
