    A fabulous lineup. MELVIN AND HOWARD is arguably the greatest American film of the 1980's and should be the shinning achievement that Jonathan Demme is known for, rather than that cliched film about a stereotyped serial killer. (Hey, my opinion, but one I hold strongly)

    I've been waiting a long time to see a decent version of THE SNAKE PIT and Leo Tover's monumentally lucid cinematography.

    Personally, I'm not as big a fan of THE PAPER CHASE, but James Bridges is a major stylist whose work I feel has grown richer and deeper over time and THE PAPER CHASE, divorced by its early 70's teen romance trappings, may indeed hold up much better, as many Forum members here have already mentioned.

    And now we come to STAGECOACH, a very personal and underrated achievement of its director Gordon Douglas, which works remarkably well--including Alex Cord's performance---as it's part of an ensemble which is linked to the director's sense of timing and loose but visceral composition. The "Cahiers de Cinema" crowd were really enthusiastic about Douglas' STAGECOACH when it was first released, referring to Douglas' almost winking, self-conscious use of cinematic genre imagery "revolutionary" in terms of its connection to a loose as a goose ensemble where the sum is greater than the parts, though Ann Margaret does at moments almost upset the apple cart. Most importantly, Douglas' STAGECOACH needs to be viewed within its own time as a production from the 1960's, and also to the resonance of its cast without any comparison to the previous film, which has its own legend. One might even argue, though I might not necessarily agree, that Gordon's STAGECOACH is superior simply because it does not have the legend or aura that the previous film does, and is in fact gloriously subversive in that it attacks and undermines all attempts at creating a legend, but does so within its own newfound, cinematic prose. Anyway, that's an argument for another time and place.

    The poster I posted in this particular thread is wrong or is the wrong poster elsewhere?

    Ron,

    You can clearly see John Wayne from the 1939 film in the picture at the top of this thread and on the banner page.

    Someone on the team hijacked this thread with the John Wayne image. That's not my doing. I posted the poster art. Let me see who is responsible for posting the John Wayne image.

    Was Stagecoach ever released with a 4.0 stereo track? IMDB says it was but we know they are not always correct.

    Everyone reading this probably knows that the real Melvin Dummar (the subject of Melvin and Howard) died on 12/09/2018 at age 74 years. In the film, you can see the real Melvin behind a bus station lunch counter.

    THE PAPER CHASE is one of my all time favorite films. Day one purchase for me.

    In for The Snake Pit and The Paper Chase. I wonder if they will include in the commentary or essay information about the scene(s) cut featuring Celeste Holmes' character, in The Snake Pit ,who disappears after the beginning of the picture. Won't mention here in case someone would consider it a spoiler, but it was interesting. Most likely cut scenes no longer exist.

    Unfortunately, Twilight Time just stated on the forum that "Paper Chase" is slated for another company so it will not be released by Twilight Time. The substitute title is "Three Coins in the Fountain".

    ATTENTION


    Due to unforeseen circumstances, THE PAPER CHASE will not be part of the April lineup.

    Twilight Time will be replacing the title with THREE COINS IN THE FOUNTAIN (1954) (2016 4k transfer)

    Given what our Twilight Time friends have been through the past month or so, I totally understand the mixup.

    This is great news! For me anyway. I'm not a fan of The Paper Chase and have long been dreaming of a HD release of Three Coins In The Fountain. Thank you, Twilight Time :)
