The Last Valley from the 65mm neg.
You have probably heard by now that the new "Cotton Club Encore" is coming to Blu next month, right? If not, check this out:
Looks like there's a 4K version of Elephant Man in the works for Europe, and those discs aren't region-locked.Dear Dick, regarding your addendum to the titles I originally listed in post 1: I was referring to region 1 discs. The Christies' won't play in North America so they remain MIA in my opinion. Ditto for The Elephant Man. You were right about The Falcon and the Snowman, though. Whoops! Don't know how I missed that!
There surely is! It was produced by Mel Brook's company Brooksfilms and distributed in the US by Universal, but there has been absolutely no DVD or Blu release of it anywhere. 'Bout time... Sensational performance by Lange. Hard to watch at times, but Brooks was not a stranger to downbeat material (ELEPHANT MAN, DOCTOR AND THE DEVILS, etc.) when he wasn't cracking everyone up with campfire farting fests or libidinous man-made monsters. I'd pre-order FRANCES the moment it is announced.
Have that Paramount dvd release too and a great film about Hollywood's darker side.The one I really want is Day of the Locust. It's one of the best dark Hollywood movies and got shoved aside because it came out at the same time as Nashville. The DVD of it is pretty crummy. It really deserves better.
