The only thing they have in common... is each other. Hot on the heels of Saturday Night Fever and Grease, screen icon John Travolta (Blow Out) teamed up with the sensational Lily Tomlin (Nashville, 9 to 5) for the May/December love story Moment by Moment. Trisha Rawlings (Tomlin), a lonely, middle-aged Beverly Hills socialite, meets Vick “Strip” Harrison (Travolta), a suave young drifter. Their initial flirtation turns into a passionate relationship despite their age and class differences. Tomlin’s longtime partner Jane Wagner (The Incredible Shrinking Woman) wrote and directed this superb romantic melodrama shot by ace cinematographer Philip H. Lathrop (They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?) and co-starring Bert Kramer (Bloody Birthday) and Debra Feuer (To Live and Die in L.A.).

There was a part of me secretly hoping for an MST3K version of this, but I just want to revel in its badness.

What’s So Bad About Feeling Good? (1968)
• Brand New Master from a 2K Scan of the Interpositive
• NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historians Howard S. Berger and Nathaniel Thompson
• Two Theatrical Trailers (Newly Restored in 2K)

George Peppard (Newman’s Law) and Mary Tyler Moore (Thoroughly Modern Millie) star in this infectious comedy from director George Seaton (Miracle on 34th Street). Pete (Peppard) and Liz (Moore) live a cynical existence as part of a beatnik commune in a New York City loft. One day, the loft receives an unexpected visitor—a wayward toucan carrying a highly contagious virus that causes intense feelings of happiness and kindness in anyone affected by it! Pete catches the virus and soon an outbreak of euphoria spreads throughout the city like wildfire. But happiness threatens a society that thrives on misery, so the government sends professional problem-solver J. Gardner Monroe (Dom DeLuise, Cannonball Run), who arrives wearing a space helmet, to save the good people of New York. Co-starring John McMartin (Sweet Charity), Nathaniel Frey (Damn Yankees), Charles Lane (Papa’s Delicate Condition), Susan Saint James (P.J.), Don Stroud (Coogan’s Bluff) and Thelma Ritter (Daddy Long Legs), this sweet-natured, side-splitting satire poses the question: What’s So Bad About Feeling Good?

I believe this is a Blu-ray only release, but I just wanted to check if it will also be released on DVD (I don't think it ever had an official Region 1 DVD release). Thanks in advance for responding.

• Reversible Blu-ray Art
• Theatrical Trailer

Color 90 Minutes 1.85:1 Rated R
Guyana: Cult of the Damned (aka Guyana: Crime of the Century) is a 1970 Mexican-American exploitation drama written and directed by René Cardona Jr. (Tintorera, The Bermuda Triangle).

The names of the central characters are slightly tweaked from the historical ones, the film is set in “Johnsontown” rather than Jonestown, the cult is led by “Reverend James Johnson” (Stuart Whitman, Shadows in an Empty Room, Rio Conchos, Maniac!) rather than Rev. Jim Warren Jones, and the murdered Congressman is “Lee O’Brien” (Gene Barry, The War of the Worlds and TV’s Burke’s Law) instead of Leo Ryan. Guyana: Cult of the Damned features a stellar cast that includes John Ireland (Red River), Joseph Cotten (The Third Man), Yvonne De Carlo (TV’s The Munsters), Bradford Dillman (Chosen Survivors), Nadiuska (Conan the Barbarian), Hugo Stiglitz (Tintorera) and Robert DoQui (The Devil’s 8).

Excellent, thank you for the confirmation, KL Insider. The avalanche of outstanding releases just keep coming! Thank you!
My thanks as well. Please keep up the work releasing films/movies that have never been out in any medium before?
Has Kino/Lorber considered looking into more unreleased tv movies?

Ah, this brings back memories. I was in my mid-teens when this came out and I remember discussing it at school with a fellow film fanatic. Later, in another conversation, when I mentioned Robert Mitchum was my favorite movie star, he grinned and said his favorite was Vincent Price!

The Last Man on Earth (1964)
• NEW Audio Commentary by Richard Harland Smith
• TRAILERS FROM HELL with Joe Dante
• Richard Matheson Storyteller
• 2 TV Spots
• Alternate Ending
• Italian Trailer
• Theatrical Trailer
• Limited Edition O-Card Slipcase (2500)

Screen legend Vincent Price (Tales of Terror, The Raven) gives a masterful performance in this post-apocalyptic sci-fi chiller, the first and most faithful adaptation of Richard Matheson’s classic novel I Am Legend. A plague envelops the earth, decimating the population and leaving one man still alive: scientist Robert Morgan (Price), who exhibits a strange immunity to the deadly disease. The rest of the earth’s people slowly turn into bloodsucking vampires and Morgan must use all of his knowledge to survive their onslaught. Directed by Sidney Salkow (Twice-Told Tales) and produced by Robert L. Lippert (The Earth Dies Screaming), this seminal classic influenced the creation of Night of the Living Dead plus countless imitations.

Thoroughly Modern Millie (1967)
• Roadshow Edition - Newly Restored in 4K by Universal Pictures
• NEW Audio Commentary by Author/Film Historian Lee Gambin and Art Historian Ian McAnally
• Two Theatrical Trailers (Newly Restored in 2K)

Color 152 Minutes 1.85:1 Rated G
The hit musical Thoroughly Modern Millie stars the iconic Julie Andrews (Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music) in the title role of an innocent small-town girl who comes to the big city in search of a husband. Along the way she becomes the secretary of the rich and famous Trevor Graydon (John Gavin, Back Street), befriends the sweet Miss Dorothy (Mary Tyler Moore, What’s So Bad About Feeling Good?), fights off the wretched Mrs. Meers (Beatrice Lillie, On Approval) and hooks up with a lively paper clip salesman, Jimmy (James Fox, Isadora). In the end it takes a rich and nutty jazz baby like Muzzy (Carol Channing, Skidoo) to unravel all these complications, give a great party and match up lovers. Oscar winner George Roy Hill (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting) directed this zany romantic spoof of the Roaring Twenties that garnered seven Academy Award nominations and won for its wonderful score by the great Elmer Bernstein (The Magnificent Seven, To Kill a Mockingbird).

I saw this on a double bill with "The Fabulous World of Jules Verne", Joe Levine's Americanized version of Karel Zeman's "Invention for Destruction". Now that was a fabulous Saturday afternoon at the movies!

The Raven (1963)
• Audio Commentary by Film Historian David Del Valle
• Corman’s Comedy of Poe: An Interview with Producer/Director Roger Corman
• Richard Matheson: Storyteller
• TRAILERS FROM HELL with Mick Garris
• Theatrical Trailer
• Limited Edition O-Card Slipcase (2500)

The legendary “Triumvirate of Terror”—Vincent Price (Scream and Scream Again), Peter Lorre (The Comedy of Terrors) and Boris Karloff (The Crimson Cult)—star in this twisted tale of sorcery most fowl! Director Roger Corman (Tales of Terror) and screenwriter Richard Matheson (The Last Man on Earth) deliver a tongue-in-cheek take on Edgar Allan Poe’s most famous poem. Dr. Craven (Price), the son of a great sorcerer (now dead), was once himself quite skilled at that profession, but has since abandoned it. One evening, a cowardly fool of a magician named Bedlo (Lorre) comes to Craven for help—the evil Scarabus (Karloff) has turned him into a raven and he needs someone to change him back. He also tells the reluctant wizard that Craven’s long-lost wife Lenore (Hazel Court, The Premature Burial), whom he loved greatly and thought dead, is living with the despised Scarabus. Featuring Jack Nicholson (Prizzi’s Honor) in an early screen role, this Corman-Poe classic about two wizards dueling for magical supremacy is utterly bewitching!
