    I saw that article, and was very happy.

    I watch this movie every year on my birthday (NYE).

    I hope that if Criterion does release this, they are able to include the 1930 version.

    It took me many years to warm up to "Holiday" as it was never a personal favorite of mine. I watched it earlier this year and found myself enjoying it a lot more than in the past. I will definitely buy it on Blu-ray.

    Well, Holiday is coming; I'm all in for Talk of the Town.

    I got tired of waiting and bought the HD stream on iTunes and have enjoyed watching it a couple of times since I bought it. If Criterion does come out with a Blu-ray, I'm sure I'll buy it. It's one of my favorite Hepburn movies, and I think Grant is completely disarming in the film.

    I'd love to see the 1930 version of HOLIDAY with Ann Harding, Robert Ames and Mary Astor added as a bonus extra on any forthcoming bluray of the 1938 version. I can completely see Ann Harding and Mary Astor in the Hepburn and Doris Nolan roles. And Edward Everett Horton plays the same character in both films.

    Harding and Astor are actually better.

    Oh, how wonderful about The Circus! At long, long last! Just too long to wait for it, unfortunately. I want it now!

    "The Circus"? Yes !!!:drum:

    Boy, Lord Dalek, did I do a double-take when I saw your post.
    THIS has been on my shortest of short lists for quite some time. Most coveted.
    And for those who haven't yet gone to the link, it's gonna be a 4K digital restoration, as well.:thumbs-up-smiley:

    C'mon, Criterion, don't stop now;
    I just know you're holding out on "Bringing Up Baby" until the holidays, right?
    Dare I say it, but I can feel it in my bones.;)

    I’m just agog over all the bonus features!

    Deleted scenes? Oh yah! Interview with chaplain! Premier footage! This is looking to be one of Criterion ‘s best releases this year!

    The thing I don’t get is why it is a restoration of the 1969 rerelease. Perhaps the 1927 version is missing?
