I might have missed this, but is there any update on Kino's plans to release Blue Skies with Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire? As I remember, it was announced without a definite date, but I don't seem to be able to find any further information on its pending release. By the way, thoroughly enjoying Thoroughly Modern Millie, a favorite of my mom's who just passed away on Sept. 4, this year.

That title's release date hasn't been announced for this year which means it's not coming out until some time in 2022.

Jet Pilot (1957)
• Includes Both the 1.85:1 Widescreen and 1.37 Versions of the Film
• Theatrical Trailer
• Optional English Subtitles

Color 113 Minutes 1.85:1 | 1.37:1 Not Rated
From producer Howard Hughes (Hell’s Angels, The Outlaw) and director Josef von Sternberg (Thunderbolt, The Blue Angel) comes the thrilling and often humorous Cold War adventure Jet Pilot starring screen greats John Wayne (Rio Bravo, Brannigan) and Janet Leigh (Touch of Evil, The Manchurian Candidate). Wayne gives one of his most commanding performances as an American Air Force colonel who is sent by the Pentagon to obtain top-secret information from a Russian pilot (Leigh). The two eventually fall in love and, with their marriage as a perfect cover, the colonel is ordered to flee to Russia with his bride—this time with him posing as a defector. When the political charade is discovered, however, the courageous couple must embark on a heart-pounding escape with enemy agents in hot pursuit. Written by Jules Furthman (Spawn of the North, Nightmare Alley) and shot by Winton C. Hoch (Joan of Arc, The Quiet Man), Jet Pilot is a high-flying spectacle that “soars in an ecstatic flight of speed, grace and color” (Andrew Sarris).

I'm happy KL has a commentary track from Nick Pinkerton on Jet Pilot. I've always liked this film. It will be nice to get some background on the production.

Coming December 7th!

21 Hours at Munich (1976)
September 5, 1972. The darkest day in sports history. Some 900 million sports fans tune in to watch the Olympics on TV. Instead, they see the most shocking scenes unfold... screen legend William Holden (The Devil’s Brigade, Breezy) and Shirley Knight (The Group, Juggernaut) turn this real-life catastrophic event into a mesmerizing story of suspense, anger and disbelief. The perpetrators wear tracksuits, but they are anything but athletes. Known as “Black September,” these Arab terrorists storm the Olympic village before dawn and take the Israeli team hostage. They make their demands as the minutes tick by. But from this point on, it isn’t about who takes home the gold. It’s about who comes home at all. Franco Nero (The Mercenary), Anthony Quayle (The Tamarind Seed) and Richard Basehart (The Satan Bug) co-star in this pulse-pounding TV movie from veteran director William A. Graham (Change of Habit) based on Serge Groussard’s book The Blood of Israel.

Extras and other details will be announced soon!

"The most violent episode in the history of terrorism"

Sadly, the events of twenty years ago this weekend make this tagline from the 1970s out of date.

Don't know, but it's weird to see this coming from Scorpion. This is WAY more up Kino's alley. I guess it's great that Scorpion wants to expand into other genres but I liked them more when they released horror and Z grade action films
Scorpion has been releasing melodramas since the beginning, The Girl in Blue, Fools, Sweet William, Paper Tiger, A Summer Story, David and Lisa, Steaming, Hard Country...

I remember watching the tragic events of the 1972 Olympics play out on television as a kid. I purchased the DVD of the documentary One Day in September a few years ago and look forward to purchasing this dramatization when it is released. Thank you KL for releasing this!

I know MGM released it on DVD in 2005; will KL's release be DVD and Blu-ray or Blu-ray only?

I saw when it was released. A good film but a real tearjerker.

Yes, but the majority of my Scorpion collection is comprised of horror and exploitation. Maybe Scorpion was only really interested in melodramas all along and just released horror as a way to cast a wider net? It's not uncommon for labels to do that. Judging by the sheer amount of horror and exploitation that they've released so far I'd say it has been their bread and butter.

No new announcements since Sunday! I guess I've been spoiled by the almost daily announcements to which I've grown accustomed. Are we building up to a whole list of new releases, or is this just a well-deserved rest
for Those In The Know?
