The Devil Strikes at Midnight is an excellent film. I'd been wanting to see it for years, and then Eddie Mueller showed it on a Noir Festival online and I finally got my wish. It lived up to its reputation.
Note: It has nothing to do, nor does it look like The Night of the Generals.

Great! That leaves only You Gotta Stay Happy as the only one from the James Stewart Screen Legends DVD collection not on blu. Maybe we'll see that one later.

Odd that KL would put Strange Bedfellows and Man's Favorite Sport out on blu when the previous blu rays are readily available. Of course, they don't have the addition of the new audio commentaries.
True. It is still good to see them out. I still am hoping for more never released Universal titles from that same time period.

• Brand New 2K Master
• NEW Audio Commentary by Author/Film Historian Lee Gambin and Costume Historian Elissa Rose
• Theatrical Trailer

B&W 82 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
Screen legends Gary Cooper (Desire, Beau Geste) and Carole Lombard (Hands Across the Table, Nothing Sacred) star along with the irresistible Shirley Temple (Since You Went Away, I’ll Be Seeing You) in Now and Forever. Penny (Temple) is a poor-little-rich girl whose father, Jerry (Cooper), a jewel thief and con artist, comes to claim her from his late wife’s stuffy relatives. Together with new spouse Toni (Lombard), Jerry has sworn to mend his ways and set a good example for his beloved daughter. He soon discovers that old habits die hard, especially when the best schools cost money that Jerry does not have. Directed by Hollywood great Henry Hathaway (The Lives of a Bengal Lancer, Peter Ibbetson) and featuring unforgettable performances, this endearing tale of love, honor and sacrifice will touch your heart—now and forever.

Nice! I hope Kino continues their partnership with Universal for at least a few more years. They keep putting out these great classic titles and all of us on here should keep thanking them for the outstanding job they are doing.

I’ve been waiting for this title (If I Were King) to be officially announced for a long time
(it was strongly rumored to be part of the KL/Universal deal)

Colman is fantastic. Rathbone is fantastic
The performance that should have garnered Rathbone an Oscar. (The extras guild who got to vote that year for the awards made sure one of their own, Walter Brennan, was once again awarded the prize, his second in three years, for Kentucky.)

I am thrilled to see this as an upcoming title!

Yes, it's absolutely the most un-Rathbone-like performance of his entire career. I'm ashamed to admit that the first time I saw this, it took me quite a while before I realized that he was King Louis!

BTW, no disrespect to Frank Lloyd, but if anyone's the auteur of this film, it's Sturges.

Visionary filmmaker David Cronenberg (Scanners, The Fly) and muse Viggo Mortensen (The Indian Runner, Green Book) follow up A History of Violence with another acclaimed joint effort, the mesmerizing Eastern Promises.

Brilliantly written by Steven Knight (The Girl in the Spider’s Web) with terrific supporting turns by Vincent Cassel (Black Swan) and Armin Mueller-Stahl (Music Box), this brooding and provocative masterpiece is “no ordinary crime thriller, just as Cronenberg is no ordinary director” (Roger Ebert). Top-notch cinematography by Peter Suschitzky (Figures in a Landscape, Dead Ringers).

Back Street (1941)
• Brand New 2K Master

B&W 89 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
Back Street
, one of the most popular and endearing romance novels of all time, has been brought to the silver screen several times over the years. This sublime 1941 adaptation stars the luminous Margaret Sullavan (The Good Fairy, The Shop Around the Corner) and the dashing Charles Boyer (When Tomorrow Comes, Gaslight). Five years after meeting and falling in love with a banker (Boyer), a willful shop girl (Sullavan) decides to become his “back street” woman upon learning he has since gotten married and had a son. This classic story of an illicit love affair from author Fannie Hurst (Imitation of Life) is brought to vivid life by director Robert Stevenson (Jane Eyre, Mary Poppins) with wonderful supporting roles by Richard Carlson (All I Desire), Frank McHugh (Going My Way) and Tim Holt (The Treasure of the Sierra Madre). Featuring an Oscar-nominated score by Frank Skinner (The Tarnished Angels), this elegant tearjerker packs a hefty dramatic punch.
