Volume VI and Volume VII sets are must buys for me. Psyched that Singapore is finally get a release (I do NOT believe it was ever released on DVD, let alone blu-ray in North America). Raging Tide and Johnny Stool Pigeon also never released. And The Boss will presumably be getting its first release in its proper OAR. An underrated, hard-hitting drama as much as a noir.

Almost Summer (1978)
• Brand New 2K Master
• NEW Interview with Actress Lee Purcell
• Theatrical Trailer

Color 88 Minutes 1.85:1 Rated PG
In this hilarious teen movie that paved the way for Fast Times at Ridgemont High and The Breakfast Club, Bobby DeVito (Bruno Kirby, City Slickers) is the “senior campaign strategist” in a highly contested high school student body presidential election. Christine Alexander (Lee Purcell, Mr. Majestyk) is Bobby’s former girlfriend who’s almost guaranteed to win the election...because her opponent got suspended! To get even with Christine for breaking up with him, Bobby puts up an unknown candidate, Darryl Fitzgerald (John Friedrich, The Wanderers)—and the presidential race gets nasty! This irresistible ’70s cult comedy classic from director Martin Davidson (The Lords of Flatbush, Eddie and the Cruisers) features Didi Conn (Grease), Tim Matheson (Up the Creek) and a rockin’ soundtrack from Mike Love of The Beach Boys!

Cissy (Kane) and Ellen (Grant) are daughters of a deceased African primatologist who kept wild animals in a cage in his living room. Mentally unbalanced, Cissy virtually lives in this exotic ‘Mafu Cage’, crowded with hothouse plants and strange African artifacts. Ellen is obsessed with the caretaking of Cissy and must keep a constant watch on her sister’s unpredictable personality. When Ellen’s co-worker, David (James Olson, The Andromeda Strain, Ragtime), begins making romantic advances towards Ellen, Cissy believes the man poses a threat to the sisters’ relationship. The disturbed Cissy ensnares David in the Mafu Cage and subjects him to a series of horrific, and deadly rituals! Also starring Will Geer (TV’s The Waltons) and acclaimed by critics upon its release.

I remember Singapore being released only on VHS.

Color 101 Minutes 2.35:1 Not Rated
At the onset of the Civil War, seven young Texans hope to join up with General Hood’s Confederate forces. Calling themselves the Concho County Comanches, the eager cowboys embark on a long and arduous journey eastward and encounter class prejudice and mounting danger along the way.

Brenda Scott (Simon, King of the Witches), John Doucette (One More Train to Rob), Noah Beery (Wings of the Hawk), Tisha Sterling (Coogan’s Bluff), James Gammon (The Milagro Beanfield War), Rex Ingram (Anna Lucasta) and Albert Popwell (Charley Varrick) round out the cast of this rousing western from director William Hale (S.O.S. Titanic) and novelist Heck Allen a.k.a. Will Henry (Young Billy Young).

Color 109 Minutes 1.85:1 Rated R
Nastassja Kinski (Cat People), John Savage (The Deer Hunter), John Goodman (Barton Fink), Robert Mitchum (The Yakuza) and Keith Carradine (The Long Riders) star in this war-torn love story that breaks the eroticism barrier with an astonishing directness. When her teenage sweetheart Ivan (Savage) returns home from WWII, Maria (Kinski) eagerly accepts his marriage proposal, looking forward to a lifetime of happiness. But her joy is short-lived when Ivan’s dark past shrouds their wedding night in misery, driving a wedge between them that neither knows how to remove. Confused and depressed, Maria attempts to mend her true love’s heart despite the advances of other suitors. But when a traveling musician (Carradine) hits the right note, Maria struggles to justify her unfulfilling life. Is her passion too powerful to be contained within the sanctity of marriage? Kinski gives a radiant performance in this compelling and provocative drama from renowned director Andrei Konchalovsky (Siberiade, Runaway Train).

One of the very few Robert Mitchum films I've never seen.

Dunne and Boyer made on-screen magic in each of their three film pairings. Ecstatic that Kino will bring us When Tomorrow Comes! With the recent Criterion announcement regarding Love Affair, especially excited all diehard fans and new fans will be able to experience TWO of this screen duo's films more easily, and might I add, more beautifully.
