    Powerhouse/Indicator in the U.K. is releasing a box set of four John Ford films on blu ray. Three have seen U.S. releases: The Whole Town's Talking, Gideon's Day, The Last Hurrah and making its blu ray debut with a 4K restoration, The Long Gray Line. There was hope of Twilight Time releasing The Long Gray Line but since its demise, it's moot. Of course, there's always the possibility Sony might release it itself in the U.S. Product details can be found here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B084KCG8GJ/ref=as_li_ss_tl?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&psc=1&linkCode=sl1&tag=dvdbeaver-21&linkId=4dbb89675c828a9c4b405410e2bbadd6&language=en_GB

    This looks enticing. I have Indicator's William Castle, Sam Fuller, and Budd Boetticher sets and they're all A+ quality and the very definition of "collector's editions"

    A word of warning, unlike the other Indicator sets, this set is locked to region B, it seems that Sony are insisting on it now.

    Unfortunately, I have three of those on Blu-ray already so I guess my HD digital for "The Long Gray Line" has to suffice for now.

    Which indicates (no pun intended) that perhaps Sony has plans of its own to release The Long Gray Line in the U.S. The other three are still in print on blu ray.

    I've been dragging my arse about buying those three U.S. released Ford titles so this does seem like the perfect opportunity to kill four birds with one stone.

    I would probably have been all over this if I hadn’t already invested in the two Twilight Time titles. I think I may wait to get the other two from iTunes when the price is right.

    I have several Indicator sets and they play on my Region A player. Is this something they are changing now so the discs you buy from now on won't play unless it's Region B?

    Well as I read it online, it's not Indicator, it's Sony saying that their titles must be region locked from this release on. I suppose it's so that Sony can license the titles in America.

    It says they are Region B on their website ... Some of the earlier Arrow (a different company) discs were marked Region B but played in Region A. Until the discs are released on April 20, there is probably no way to tell. Unless a reviewer indicates (ahem) they play in Region A ...

    Wait, Twilight Time is out of business? Is that correct?

    Nothing has been officially announced but it sure seems that way since they haven't released anything for months and are continually having sales (likely to get rid of their existing stock).
