    A very good question. I hope Mister Lime can provide a reassuring answer.

    Fedora will be released by Olive Films. Either late this year or early next.

    Very cool movie. There's a scene where the action just stops so Keenan Wynn and Lee Marvin can compare muscles.

    Shack Out on 101 is one of the great B noirs, kind of cheap and sleazy with a bizarre Cold War / Red scare plot, but just overflowing with character and buzzing with oddball ensemble byplay in the diner "shack" of the title. I can now retire my TV recording. And time to pull out my poster and hang it on the wall again.

    Yes, this is a wonderful movie. Yet another one of those films Olive keeps coming up with that I never expected to have on a quality DVD, let alone a Blu.

    Is Robert Siodmak's 1943 film Someone to Remember no longer part of the Republic library a la Borzage's Moonrise? It's a pretty great Republic film that has never had a home video release but I haven't seen it mentioned in connection with Olive.

    I've been hoping that someone would release the thirteen A.C. Lyles westerns on DVD or Blu-ray. Paramount released one. Legend never did any. And now it looks as if Olive won't either. If we can get Republic B westerns, why not these Paramount B westerns?

    Which titles & date, rdimucci?

    Are you referring to JOHNNY RENO (1966) released on Paramount DVD?

    The westerns you refer to were all shoestring budget productions shot on the backlot in a week. Tired old scripts from the 1940s, twenty years out of date when they were made. They're not very good and there isn't much love for them.

    Still, as an almost-completist, I would buy every single one of them on DVD or blu-ray.

    Excellent suggestion, rdimucci
    Here are the backlot westerns produced by A.C. Lyles from scripts by Steve Fisher:
    1968 Buckskin
    1968 Arizona Bushwhackers
    1967 Red Tomahawk
    1967 Hostile Guns
    1967 Fort Utah
    1966 Waco
    1966 Johnny Reno
    1965 Young Fury
    1965 Town Tamer
    1965 Black Spurs
    1965 Apache Uprising
    1964 Stage to Thunder Rock
    1964 Law of the Lawless, AKA Invitation To a Hanging

    The idea was to put some quick, low-budget formula films onto theater screens to pull Paramount out of an economic downslide. Strictly B films targeted for an older audience, but the screen was wide, the color was bright, the western ambiance was thick, the craftsmanship was quite good on a technical level, and the strategy worked at the box-office. Buckskin is notable for being photographed by 3-D pioneer Lothrop Worth. Encore Westerns airs some of these occasionally. Let the posters put a face on them:

    StageToThunderRock-1964-Paramount-one.jpg
    ApacheUprising-1965-Paramount-one.jpg

    YoungFury-1965-Paramount-one.jpg
    TownTamer-1965-Paramount-one.jpg
    JohnnyReno-1966-Paramount-one.jpg
    RedTomahawk-1966-Paramount-one.jpg

    More posters coming.

    I had Johnny Reno on DVD. It's not a bad film but the sets were terrible, about the worst I have seen. The colour looked badly faded and I am not sure how much it would be improved on blu-ray when there probably wouldn't be much money spent on it.

    Thanks for the series of posters, Richard. I really enjoying looking at them and observing how a sort of stock company of players rotated through this series of movies.

    It also made me do a little quick research on Techniscope which I didn't know much about. Wow! Argo and Silver Linings Playbook used Techniscope!
