    A Paramount film that hastened the implementation of the Production Code. It's based on Faulkner's Sanctuary, and it's a real shocker. After having been missing for decades, a 35mm print surfaced in time for the Paramount retrospective at MoMA in 1972. The museum arranged a private screening for Miriam Hopkins who sadly died shortly thereafter from heart disease. I caught the public screening and thought the film was quite, quite good. A Criterion treatment is very welcome.

    I thought with too much hope for THE HOUSE OF ROTHSCHILD, but that doesn’t factor in the duck.

    Until Joel sussed it out so quickly, I was feeling confident it was going to be Duck on a Hot Temple Roof.

    Is that the play written by Tennessee Inge Odets?

    What about Variety Lights, I vitelloni and The White Sheik? I'll take upgrades of all Fellini's films.

    Variety Lights and White Sheik are Studio Canal titles. Good luck with that.

    There have been rumors that Criterion have entered into a new deal with StudioCanal, so if they’re true, it might not be as impossible as you think.

    GREAT NEWS!!!

    Usually I have to buy Criterions from the US, and with conversion and shipping they easily top $40-$50. That's a lot for a single title. It's better when B&N has a sale, but it's still a big chunk of change. Sunrise Records sells them, but they charge over $50. If Unobstructed is able to lower the price, I'll be really happy!

    Great news, for sure! Currently, I buy all my Criterions during the B&N sales, after shipping and exchange, each title works out to about $30, not bad, but if Unobstructed can offer them even cheaper, and I can order whenever not having to wait for sales, all the better!

    I don't know about anybody else, but I am really hoping they FINALLY announce another Cary Grant film with their December releases. After getting about two a year the last couple years, it feels disappointing that we've only gotten just Notorious WAAAY back in January. Not trashing the movie, as I like it, just bemoaning the fact that we only have one film when we know at least Holiday got restored, not to mention how we are waiting for some of the Warner-owned films, if indeed Criterion has licensed any. The only other thing I personally would like to see, if they have any more licensed, would be another Astaire-Rogers film. I also wouldn't mind The Cameraman, but I could wait on that one for a little while yet.

    I love pre-Code films, so I am very much looking forward to The Story of Temple Drake. I hope it lives up to its reputation.

    You know I was just thinking about that very thing, Suzanne. I'm always worried that talking something up so much (and I'm tremendously guilty of that, all the time) might possibly make it a tough act to live up to for those who've never seen it, lol. I hope that's not the case!
