Night Has a Thousand Eyes and Spider Woman Strikes Back: a solid 1-2 punch of '40s mysteries from Kino Lorber and Universal (3 including The Mad Doctor... 4 including Alias Nick Beal).

And do you notice a pattern here? Look at all the "Likes" the announcements of these formerly AWOL Universal and Paramount horror-mysteries attract here on HTF. Typically some two-dozen or more for each.

Just sayin' .......

The Two Worlds of Jennie Logan (1979 TV Movie)

If you like romance and the supernatural, welcome to Jennie’s thrilling world!
Jennie Logan (Lindsay Wagner, Nighthawks, TV’s The Bionic Woman) lives in two worlds: the present and—by mans of a magical transport—the turn-of-the-century past. In the present she endures heartache, in the past, she finds love in the person of David Reynolds (Marc Singer, The Beastmater, TV’s V and V: The Final Battle), a young artist. Jennie longs to stay in the past with David, but is the past nothing more than a dream? She returns to the present only to discover David has been mysteriously murdered in the year 1899. Once again Jennie travels to the past, risking both of her worlds, matching her love against the course of history as she tries to rescue the man she loves from his fate. Veteran film and television writer/director Frank De Felitta (Anzio, Z.P.G., Audrey Rose, The Entity) wrote and directed this haunting film co-starring Linda Gray (Dogs, TV’s Dallas) and screen legend Gloria Stuart (The Old Dark House, Titanic).

The Kino catalogue has so vastly grown that soon there will nothing left, but for the exception of an inherited 8mm b/w 50 ft. reel of Kodak Safety Film and my great-great-grandparents family picnic.:thumbs-up-smiley:

Oh Kino.....Oh Kino... I've been away from any computer for a month and I return to see Flower Drum Song added to Thoroughly Modern Millie, that means my 2 top spots on my wanted blu-ray list are blank. I can't tell you how happy I awith this. These 2 musicals have deserved a place on blu-ray for years. I was rather surprised to see Flower Drum not being a 4k scan of the negative, very strange for this title, but from what I have seen running on TCM lately this is still going to be a beauty! My question is...what happened to the original negative? The recent showings on TCM are the remastered version (because they show the Samual Goldwyn logo, who owns the TV rights, Universal has the home video rights) and I have to say we are in for one great looking and sounding disc. I can't wait to hear this in lossless audio! Thank you so much Kino!

1) It's a neglected but innovative and quite wonderful Rogers and Hammerstein musical about the minutiae of life in an Asian community in the USA. No big social issues here or intense drama, at least on the surface, just a celebration of life, and an illumination of a type of everyday life that didn't get seen much in big Hollywood films, especially Rogers and Hammerstein musicals.
2) It's pretty darn wonderful, exquisitely mounted and really entertaining, and though there are no R&H standards in this show, the score, by Richard Rogers, is exemplary. A must hear and a must have.
3) It's the last R&H musical to be released on Blu-Ray, and if you collect those--many people on this board do--this is essential.
4) Nancy Kwan is the lead, and for those of us who grew up in the fifties, we adore her, and collect all of her films, and this is probably the best, as she plays an ordinary person, with hopes and dreams, and boy, is she ebullient and charming and real. If you're a Nancy Kwan fan, this is essential.
5) It was directed by Henry Koster, who has not yet been embraced by cinephiles, as Mr. Koster's work is fairly invisible--no fish-eye lens shots, no self-referential images or fancy camerawork that draws attention to itself--yet Mr. Koster's films have a warmth and intelligence that is distinctive and completely individual, and this film contains some of his best work.
6) There's also the ensemble performances and presences of all the other actors in the film as well, bringing humor and heart.
7) It's a big budget Hollywood film that is eye-poppingly expansive. Though it was done at Universal, which was generally low to medium budget at this time, they didn't cut corners. The sets, costumes and photography are all first rate.
8) All of us on this board of a certain age, saw this film in theaters when it was new, totally loved it and saw it multiple times, and we will all be buying this on day one--well, at least I will.
9) It has one of the best sounding soundtracks from the early 1960's, a fantastic mag stereo recording that blows alot of other films of that time out of the water. The bass in the music is incredible.

I really hate to be a pedant, but he always spelled it JP Miller (no periods).

An old friend of mine, David Williams, wrote the book this film is based on. The book, "Second Sight" is wonderful, and has a fairly large internet cult around it. Never saw the film.

J.C. (1972)
• 4K Restoration from the Original Camera Negative
• Theatrical Trailer
• Optional English Subtitles

Color 100 Minutes 1.85:1 Rated R
When Society Turned Against Him… He Made His Own Society! With a religious fanatic for a father, the last thing “J.C.” wanted was to follow in his footsteps. To escape his background, he becomes the leader of a motorcycle gang. Then one night, while tripping on drugs with his gang, a vision convinces “J.C.” that he possesses unique spiritual powers. He preaches a sermon asking for followers to go West with him, but they get no further than his home town before violence and death explode in a confrontation between the “establishment” and the “prophet.” A story of rebellion, “J.C.” is the dynamic portrait of social unrest, caused by a generation torn by conflicting values… with white against black, young against old and culture against subculture, it recalls an age of total upheaval. William F. McGaha (The Speed Lovers) starred, co-wrote, produced and directed this cult classic biker movie. “J.C.” co-stars Joanna Moore (Countdown), Burr DeBenning (The Incredible Melting Man), Pat Delaney (The Bat People) and the great Slim Pickens (The Getaway, Blazing Saddles, Dr. Strangelove).

Can anyone that is familiar with ordering pre-orders on the Kino's site tell me if they charge you now or do they wait and charge you later when the movies are released and ready to ship? I currently have all the Mae West films pre-ordered at amazon but i just noticed they were only 14.97 on kino's site.

I just deleted another post because it requested to the Kino Insider that a certain movie title be released on Blu-ray. We have politely requested that such posts not be posted in this thread as it places the Kino Insider in a bad position. Since, that request has been ignored by certain posters, we are just deleting posts and issuing temporary/permanent thread bans to those that refuse to follow our thread directives.
