This is very true!
No it isn’t. I’ve been awaiting their announcements monthly for years and they’ve been quite consistent on dropping them on the 15th or 16th.
Twilight Time, on the other hand...
But as it looks today we won’t have any until tomorrow.
No, what Brandon said was basically true.
There have been many times Criterion has delayed announcements for a day. They usually announce it.
Otherwise, they are pretty consistent for the 15th of the month. However, again, I have seen them delay by a day.
I have also seen them post announcements as late as 8 or 9 pm EST.
If Criterion's trying to break their 2014 record they've got 50 minutes.
EDIT: I'm about ready to declare "For whatever reason Criterion decided to announce October a day late" fellas.
EDIT2: OH WAIT NOW I KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING...
EDIT3: Nevermind. I guess we'll do this again tomorrow.
Personally, I have my doubts on that for two reasons:
1) Considering this will be for October, the more likely Cary Grant film would be Arsenic And Old Lace
2) to be a little more serious, it seems like Criterion is only releasing about two Cary Grant movies a year (although, to be fair, that can change). We already got Notorious back in January, and we are currently awaiting a more formal announcement (and release date) for Holiday (since they have been releasing at least one Sony-owned Cary Grant a year).
Could I be wrong? It's possible, as I said. I would easily be happy if ANY of those three films (Bringing Up Baby, Arsenic And Old Lace and Holiday) were announced. Any hesitation I have on wanting them announced at this point boils down to being frustrated with a lack of funds for everything that seems to be coming down the pike this year, since it seems like it's becoming a great year for a lot of the classics coming from EVERYBODY.
Could you be wrong? Could I be wrong? The answer to both questions is a resounding "Yes". But the true question is thus; how could Criterion be wrong - or even go wrong - in releasing the one-two punch of both Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn in either :"Holiday" or "Bringing Up Baby". Now there, good friends, would be a spine that absolutely bats a thousand and lives up to its celebratory number.
Classic Kate. Classic Cary. Classic Criterion.
Cary Grant never liked seeing Arsenic and Old Lace because he thought he was "over the top" in his acting. I like the film and hope Criterion will release it.
An announcement about a Criterion BluRay of Arsenic And Old Lace would be AWESOME, especially if there is some supplements that go into its production history. One of my favorite classic films.
What? Arsenic and Old Lace before Holiday or Bringing Up Baby?
[PMF begins the debate with Jeffrey D rebutting]
Would care for a glass of Elderberry wine. ?
I'm guessing still no announcement at this point?
I am giving it two hours before I retire for the evening.
I’ve never seen Holiday, but I have seen Baby. I like Arsenic more than Baby.
I don't believe this. Are we really going to go all the way to the 19th because Toho wanted to announce that Godzilla box at SDCC?
October's announcement is going to be tomorrow
You had one job Mulvaney.
I certainly can't argue with you, there! I hope that they announce at least one of those three for the month of October!
I also agree that Grant's performance was over the top -VERY over the top. It ruined the film for me. The blame lies with the Director who should have noticed Grant's performance.
I’m gonna predict:
Until the end of the world #999
Roma and the Cameraman (998 & 1000, either could be 1000),
& the Godzilla Showa set which could be no spine number like the Bergman set, or could be another good candidate for spine 1000
And haxan upgraded to blu ray.
For me, his over-the-top performance is part of the film's charm. My biggest complaint about the film is that Boris Karloff should have been in the film as he was on the original Broadway play.
