Hi Kino Lorber Insider,
Will Kino Lorber's upcoming August 3, 2021 Blu-Ray release of Coogan's Bluff
feature the movie in uncut form?

The DVD version of Coogan's Bluff is edited by approximately three minutes
in all regions for unknown reasons.

The missing scenes include Walt Coogan (Clint Eastwood)
receiving his assignment to return James Ringerman (Don Stroud) from New York,
a short scene in a hospital,
and a scene in which Julie Roth (Susan Clark) talks about Coogan's Bluff,
a lookout point over the ocean near New York
(the real Coogan's Bluff is a site on Manhattan Island between Washington Heights and Harlem),
tying the locations into the film's title.

The old VHS release of Coogan's Bluff did not have these edits and was released uncut.

Even if Kino Lorber's upcoming Blu-Ray release of Coogan's Bluff
doesn't include the uncut version of the motion picture,
I would still be buying their Blu-Ray release of it soon after its official release date
due to the excellent bonus features that will be getting included on the Blu-Ray disc.

Coogan's Bluff is a Clint Eastwood movie that I have on DVD and I've always liked the movie.
In my opinion, the vast majority of the movies that Eastwood has actually starred in are marvelous.
I have nearly all of the movies from Eastwood's filmography in my DVD or Blu-Ray collection.
I've seen the film many times on VHS and DVD and do not remember seeing any of those scenes. I've read somewhere they were included on TV broadcast versions only. I cannot say if they were in the version screened theatrically or not, though.

Lionel Atwell and Gloria Stewart in an early Universal pre-code Murder Mystery masquerading as Horror and utilizing the same house set as James Whale’s “The Old Dark House”, sign me up. Another great announcement: by the way in his book Universal Horror, Tom Weaver stated that this was a hidden gem.

Yeah, it's a pretty good movie. Speaking of Tom Weaver's book, I'm now hoping that someone releases all the movies featured in Universal Horrors. I think there's only a little more than a dozen from that book that haven't come out on Blu-ray yet... although I imagine that most of the remaining ones ain't that great.

This kind of reminds me of "Remember Last Night?", except that one is a comedy house crime mystery with several big name stars. So funny and wild. Directed by James Whale. Would love to see that get an official release from Kino, as it's a Universal film as well. Fingers crossed!

This week I watched The Night Has a Thousand Eyes courtesy of Italian TV. It's an interesting film that has the winsome Gail Russell starring opposite Edward G. Robinson. A BD should look good since it's a dark film with an interesting hook.
All My Sons is an almost literal rendition of the Arthur Miller play. It has elements of tragedy (the Greek kind) in the hero's downfall from grace. Excellent cast.
Both would be added to my collection.
Speaking of Gail Russell, how tragic her personal life turned out to be shortly after her career started in films and her death at still a young age.

a scene in which Julie Roth (Susan Clark) talks about Coogan's Bluff,
a lookout point over the ocean near New York
(the real Coogan's Bluff is a site on Manhattan Island between Washington Heights and Harlem),
tying the locations into the film's title.

The information about the location of Coogan's Bluff is partially incorrect. It does not overlook the ocean. It overlooks the Harlem River, which separates Manhattan from the Bronx. Coogan's Bluff used to overlook the Polo Grounds, the stadium in upper Manhattan where the New York Giants baseball team played before moving to San Francisco. Yankee Stadium is located in the Bronx, almost directly across the Harlem River from where the Polo Grounds was located. Coogan's Bluff is in Washington Heights, just north of W. 155th Street, which is regarded as the northern boundary of Harlem. Here is a photo of people watching a game at the Polo Grounds from Coogan's Bluff in 1908.

When I was a kid, my grandfather took me to see the Polo Grounds site a few years after it was demolished when they started building those apartment complexes that sit on the old Polo Grounds. I remember him pointing out Coogan's Bluff to me as we drove around then he took me to see my Yankees play at the old Yankee Stadium.

I remember watching this on "Chiller Theatre" one night in my yoot. Alas, I fell asleep half-way through and they never repeated it; I was furious with myself. It was literally decades before I finally got another chance to see it and this time managed to make it to the end.

And yes, REMEMBER LAST NIGHT? is absolutely a gem and IMHO Whale's best non-horror movie apart from SHOW BOAT.

Wonderful news. I think this is another effort that uses the Swan Lake music common to early Universal Horror. Now, perhaps a shift to early Paramount horror?

No, probably not. I asked about SKIPPY and they had no interest in it. Which is unfortunate because it’s a best Director winner and BP nom, and never had a release. :/

I never got to a game at the Polo Grounds but I did get to both Yankee Stadium and Ebbets Field in 1956, when I was eight years old. I got to see seven Hall of Famers play in those two games.
