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?
The Kino Insider is on vacation this week!

The last of the titles in the old Universal "Marlene Dietrich-The Glamour Collection" set to make it to blu ray. Now the set can be safely dumped.

I've seen this film only once. I'd like to see it again. If this disc is really good, I'll buy it.

I seem to recall that Dietrich loathed Millard so much that she ate raw garlic and coated herself
in goose grease before their love scenes. Am I correct in this?

I like this film. But i like most WW2 based films. Mostly the ones made during or just post WW2. Plus i'm a Milland fan.

I've never heard that story before and I doubt that it's true. First, Marlene Dietrich was a diamond-hard professional and would not behave in such an unprofessional way. Second, Ray Milland seems to have been an easy going nice guy who would not provoke such dislike. I've never heard any of his co-workers say anything bad about him. Even knocking Clark Gable out by accident didn't make him any enemies!

Yeah, Baby as I'm doing my happy dance. :dance: It's too bad this isn't a 4K disc release as this is a beautiful movie that is mainly filmed outdoors on location. Anyhow, it's a terrific replacement for that prior disappointing Blu-ray.
I’ll agree the prior release was not a pristine transfer, but I’m certainly not disappointed in it (say like The Sons Of Katie Elder, Hatari, or Rio Bravo). However, if Kino releases a substantially better transfer, I will certainly double dip on this one

I don't totally agree with you, but will not debate the issue with you further, since those other titles aren't with Kino. That argument is appropriate for another thread.

ps: Did some Googling, and it does seem that the two actors disliked each other intensely. But I can't
find the "goose grease" anecdote. I have a feeling it came from one of those "Bad Things Actors Have Said
About Each Other" books, which are always fun to read, but should be taken with a large grain of salt.

Mitchell Leisen is an underrated direcor. I like many of his films. I would like Kino to publish “Remember the Night” on blu-ray.
