I'm a huge fan of The Killing, but I won't be upgrading from my Criterion blu ray regardless of any fresh extras.

Really looking forward to Kino unearthing more new-to-home-media titles; they've had a spectacular track record on this front.

It's been almost eleven years since that Blu-ray release and if they get Eddie Muller and/or Imogen Sara Smith to do some commentary with a newer 4K master then I'm buying these 4K discs.

Well, I am a fan of Eddie; just watched his intro to TCM's latest airing of 1947's Repeat Performance, in which he describes himself as a noirchaeologist. :)

Nevertheless, I'm pretty much outta bandwidth for upgrades.... unless it's an upgrade from a 16mm-based boot... ;)

Man’s Favorite Sport? (1964)

• NEW Audio Commentary by Filmmaker/Historian Michael Schlesinger with Select Remarks by Co-Star Paula Prentiss and Actor/Director Richard Benjamin
• Theatrical Trailer
• Optional English Subtitles

Color 120 Minutes 1.85:1 Not Rated
From legendary Hollywood director Howard Hawks (Rio Bravo, El Dorado), Man’s Favorite Sport? is a hilarious fish-out-of-water tale in the screwball style of Hawks’ classic Bringing Up Baby. Rock Hudson (Come September, Blindfold) is Roger Willoughby, happily employed as one of the world’s great angling experts. Unfortunately, even his own boss doesn’t know that Roger has never been fishing in his life. So when press agent Abigail Page (Paula Prentiss, What’s New Pussycat?, The Black Marble) arranges for Roger to participate in her resort’s upcoming fishing tournament, he’s thrown into a panic. At the resort, he and Abby commence a crash course to turn him into a genuine outdoorsman—only to have their plan riotously upset by a surprise visit from Roger’s fiancée. With a sparkling score by composer Henry Mancini (The Pink Panther), Man’s Favorite Sport? is a comedy classic you’ll fall for hook, line and sinker!

Strange Bedfellows (1965)

• NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historian Eddy Von Mueller
• Theatrical Trailer
• Optional English Subtitles

Color 98 Minutes 1.85:1 Not Rated
Screen great Rock Hudson (Man’s Favorite Sport?) and Italian bombshell Gina Lollobrigida (Come September) are an estranged couple on the verge of a riotous reconciliation in this delightful comic confection. Carter Harrison (Hudson) is a high-powered company exec who needs to polish up his public image. When a P.R. expert (Gig Young, They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?) tells him the answer lies in patching up his shaky marriage, Carter jets off to London to rekindle the affections of his fiery Italian wife Toni (Lollobrigida)—who is already planning her second marriage. But even as she begins to repeat the outrageously eccentric behaviors that split them up in the first place, Carter finds himself falling in love with the irresistible Toni all over again. Wonderfully directed by Melvin Frank (Buona Sera, Mrs. Campbell, A Touch of Class), Strange Bedfellows is a rollicking cinematic treat filled with slapstick antics and hilarious sight gags!
