YOU NEVER CAN TELL (1951)
• Brand New HD Master – From a 2K Scan of the 35mm Fine Grain
• NEW Audio Commentary by Filmmaker/Historian Michael Schlesinger
• Optional English Subtitles

B&W 78 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
The droll Dick Powell (Christmas in July, Pitfall) stars as a hardboiled PI with a taste for kibble in the over-the-top screwball comedy You Never Can Tell. When an eccentric tycoon leaves six million dollars to his faithful dog, King, trustee Ellen Hathaway (Peggy Dow, Bright Victory) is besieged by fortune hunters when they learn she’s next to inherit. After the German Shepherd is poisoned and Ellen’s accused of the crime, King’s spirit is granted special permission to go back to Earth in human form and help clear Ellen’s name. Returning as private eye Rex Shepard (Powell) and aided by a former racehorse named Goldie (Joyce Holden, Iron Man), King puts his nose to the ground in a dogged attempt to sniff out his killer’s name. You Never Can Tell when everything’s gone to the dogs in this gleefully whimsical farce! You Never Can Tell was the only feature film directed by veteran Hollywood screenwriter Lou Breslow (Murder, He Says, Bedtime for Bonzo).

Please note that this is not a solo commentary; I'm joined by historian Darlene Ramirez. Hopefully this will be fixed quickly.

THE MINUS MAN (1999)
• Brand New HD Master – From a 2K Scan of the 35mm Interpositive
• NEW Audio Commentary by Co-Writer/Director Hampton Fancher and Producer Fida Attieh, Moderated by Entertainment Journalist/Author Max Evry
• Theatrical Trailer
• Limited Edition O-Card Slipcase
• Optional English Subtitles

Color 111 Minutes 1.85:1 Rated R
When quiet, aimless and amiable Vann Siegert—a haunting Owen Wilson (Wedding Crashers)—drifts into town, no one suspects the evil that lies beneath the surface. Despite his easy charm, he is merely a reflection of what those who encounter him want him to be. The more Vann tries to make a go of his new life, the stronger the mysterious forces are that pull him in a darker direction. When locals start to disappear, it becomes clear that an eerie subtraction is at work among the lost and lonely of this sleepy, seaside hamlet. People look toward Vann, but no one can quite put their finger on who he really is. Through it all, he carries on a surreal dialogue with imaginary detectives who question his crimes and motives. Written and directed by Hampton Fancher (Blade Runner, Blade Runner 2049) from the acclaimed novel by Lew McCreary, this unsettling and offbeat psychological thriller gazes unflinchingly into the mind of a serial killer. With Janeane Garofalo (Clay Pigeons), Brian Cox (Manhunter), Mercedes Ruehl (Married to the Mob), Dennis Haysbert (Far from Heaven) and music icons Dwight Yoakam (Sling Blade) and Sheryl Crow.

• NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historian Toby Roan
• Optional English Subtitles

B&W 87 Minutes 1.85:1 Not Rated
Five desperate men...and a girl who didn’t care...trapped on a mountain of gale-lashed rock!
Rory Calhoun (Marco Polo), Julie Adams (Horizons West) and Ray Danton (The Night Runner) star in this rollicking, noir-tinged adventure from director Abner Biberman (The Price of Fear, Behind the High Wall). When a plane crashes in the snow-capped Rocky Mountains of Colorado, two mountain-climbing mercenaries, Pete and Jesse (Danton and Calhoun), set out on their trail with the intention of rescuing the survivors. But Pete is lured by the $250,000 in cash they find among the plane’s debris—and plans a real robbery against the survivors…with final elimination of all witnesses. Co-starring character actor greats Thomas Gomez (Force of Evil) and Frank Faylen (The Lost Weekend).

I believe this is the movie in which Julie Adams and Ray Danton met before they got married for a number of years.

Is the Stanley Kramer Production Featurette ported over from the Olive release? Because I did that! 🤠

I believe this is the movie in which Julie Adams and Ray Danton met before they got married for a number of years.
Probably. They were both Universal contract players. She was actually a few years his senior and was America's newest pinup girl, in a way, following her memorable turn in a swimsuit in Creature from the Black Lagoon. By the '60s, Danton was famously cheating on her (reportedly bedding several women in his hotel room while filming 1962's The Longest Day in Europe), though they stayed married until 1978 and he cast her in his 1975 directorial outing Psychic Killer.

Gary Cooper's "High Noon" Oscar. Janet Gaynor and John Wayne.

John Wayne and Gary Cooper are two of my favorite actors, and High Noon is one of our best westerns. Wayne displayed class and poise in his acceptance speech, especially if the following is true. I remember reading long ago that John Wayne was the first actor approached for the part of Marshal Will Kane, but he turned it down after reading the script. In comments attributed to him, he was concerned about working with the screenwriter, Carl Foreman, who had been blacklisted, and with the story line which had Marshal Kane "fretting" and "begging" several of the men in town to back him as deputies. Curiously, I never viewed Marshal Kane in that light. I just saw him as a very brave lawman who was willing to face the three gunman who were intent on killing him, and he needed deputies to increase his odds of getting through it alive. But, as Paul Harvey would say, this is rest of the story: Producer Stanley Kramer's and Director Fred Zinneman's search for Marshal Kane proceeded through 4 more actors before the studio approached Gary Cooper, who reportedly jumped at the opportunity after reading the script. Those 4 actors in order of appearance were Gregory Peck, Marlon Brando, Montgomery Clift and Charlton Heston, all of which either had existing work conflicts or the same concerns as John Wayne. Wayne may have truly felt some remorse for turning it down, but if any other actor other than Cooper had gotten the part of Marshal Will Kane, High Noon might never have reached the pinnacle it occupies in cinema history today.

Brando would have been a fascinating choice. All four of course would have been more credibly age-appropriate to have Grace Kelly as their wife.... ;)

FLETCH (1985) Color 98 Minutes 1.85:1 Rated PG
Comedy legend Chevy Chase (Foul Play) is at his fetching best in this suspense-packed and laugh-stacked thriller based on Gregory Mcdonald’s bestseller. Irwin Fletcher, a.k.a. Fletch (Chase), is an investigative reporter who changes his identity more often than his underwear. While working on a drug exposé, Fletch attracts the attention of a strange businessman (Tim Matheson, Up the Creek) who wants to be killed so his wife will inherit more insurance. The wily Fletch senses a scam, and soon he’s up to his byline in frame-ups, murder, police corruption and forbidden romance. It’ll be the story of the year, if he can stay alive to meet his deadline! Take fast-paced direction by Michael Ritchie (Prime Cut, Diggstown), add an uproarious screenplay by Andrew Bergman (The In-Laws), sprinkle in a spicy cast with Joe Don Baker, Dana Wheeler-Nicholson, Richard Libertini, M. Emmet Walsh, George Wendt, George Wyner, Kenneth Mars, Geena Davis and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and you’ve got the makings of Chevy’s funniest chase ever!

FLETCH LIVES (1989) Color 95 Minutes 1.85:1 Rated PG
Comedy great Chevy Chase (¡Three Amigos!) returns to the screen as the reckless I.M. Fletcher, investigative reporter, in Fletch Lives. This time, the chameleon-like reporter ventures to Belle Isle, a sprawling 80-acre Louisiana plantation which Fletch inherits from his aunt. Trouble begins when a lovely attorney mysteriously turns up dead, a neighborly lawyer (Hal Holbrook, Creepshow) warns him to leave town, and a ravishing real estate agent comes calling with a persistent offer he may not be able to refuse. Fletch must unravel the reasons for the mad land scramble with his trademark bag of hilarious disguises in this fast-moving comedy-mystery. Directed by Michael Ritchie (Semi-Tough, The Couch Trip), written by Leon Capetanos (Down and Out in Beverly Hills) based on Gregory Mcdonald’s bestselling books, and sporting a spunky supporting cast with Julianne Phillips, R. Lee Ermey, Richard Libertini, Randall “Tex” Cobb, Cleavon Little, George Wyner, Geoffrey Lewis, Richard Belzer and Phil Hartman.
