Might look spectacular if Fox have performed some kind of miracle. They have performed miracles in the past, magically producing high quality results from 3rd, 4th, 5th generation elements, discs like Drums Along The Mohawk being the evidence. Can Fox do it again with Forever Amber? I hope so. Linda Darnell is one of my all time favorite movie stars.

I'm definitely in for Forever Amber. I'm not familiar with The Hospital, I just watched the trailer and I just might go for a blind buy. There's another version of Wuthering Heights I would have been over the moon for, but alas it resides with the Warner people.

Guns Along the Mohawk was the sequel. Followed by the third film Runs Along the Mohawk which starred Bruce Dern and then a pair of prequels Which way to the Mohawk? and Are we on the Mohawk? which were both based on abandoned Hope and Crosby pictures.

Excellent films the lot.

I am very happy about The Hospital. George Scott is excellent and a great script from Paddy Chayefsky. What more could you ask?

I'm in for Forever Amber! I've never seen that adaptation of Wuthering Heights, but I love the book so I might have to pick that up as well. Thanks, Twilight Time. :)

I'm in for Forever Amber as well, and I'll blind-buy The Hospital. Paddy Chayefsky, and George C. Scott? sold!

The Hospital plays sort of like a warm-up for Network although obviously set in the healthcare industry. Many similar elements though. Great monologues delivered by excellent actors. A middle aged man in somewhat of a crisis in his life, both work related and personal, while he has an affair with a younger woman he meets that has much different beliefs and values than he does all set in a rather crazed environment. I think if people enjoy Network they should, if they have not already, check out The Hospital.

I'm certainly all-in for THE HOSPITAL which, like Chayefski's other masterpiece NETWORK, is satirical and funny almost in the same moments when it is cautionary and depressing. I think the events of both films have more or less become reality since their theatrical releases.

WUTHERING HEIGHTS hasn't the star power of the 1939 classic, but it features extraordinarily atmospheric visuals as well as one of my favorite film scores ever (by Michel Legrand), which is about as evocative as they come.

I'll pick up ALICE also.

Nice picks, TT...once again more exciting (for me) than the recent Criterion announcements.

Thrilled over Forever Amber! I thought it would never happen! I'm sure it will be up to TT's standards but whatever we get, it's got to be better than what's out there now (the Fox MOD, Spanish DVD etc.) As for the rest, I'm content with my Wuthering Heights (what a gorgeous Michel Legrand score!), Alice and L Shaped Room DVDs. I hated the obvious obnoxious The Hospital but then I disliked Network too. Shallow satire masquerading as something witty and profound is not my cup of tea.

Thanks. TT! Alice is an entertaining film and features Keye Luke's final role and a quite memorable one at that. I've never seen the Hospital but given the enthusiasm here for it plus Diana Rigg, it should be a safe blend buy.
