BLUEBEARD (1944) 80TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION
• 2020 HD Master by Paramount Pictures – From a 4K Scan
• NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historians Gregory W. Mank and Tom Weaver
• NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historian David Del Valle
• Limited Edition O-Card Slipcase
• Optional English Subtitles

B&W 72 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
Scream great John Carradine (The Black Sleep, House of the Long Shadows) stars in this eerie film noir version of the oft-told Bluebeard legend. Carradine is masterful as the dastardly Gaston, an artist and puppeteer in 19th-century Paris with a ghastly penchant for strangling lovely young models and surreptitiously slipping their bodies into the Seine. Gaston’s latest model, Lucille (Jean Parker, Black Tuesday), learns of his shocking secret and bravely vows to bring him to justice. Directed by the master of the strange and the spellbinding, Edgar G. Ulmer (The Black Cat, The Man from Planet X), who sustains a steady level of suspense throughout this most sinister of love stories. A dread-soaked dream for connoisseurs of classic horror and noir! Co-starring “the male Garbo” Nils Asther (By Candlelight).

The "male garbo" for nils ashter is maybe a stretch, but I've never seen this in a good print and I'm looking forward to it. And like so many giants of old, John Carradine is always superlative.

Thanks for the political analysis. Maybe someone else will comment on whether the film is any good.
6.1 Rating on the IMDB

65% Fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes
Critics Consensus
Little Buddha's storytelling may be too childlike to best service its audacious plot, but Bernardo Bertolucci's direction and Vittorio Storaro's cinematography conspire to deliver a visually strong epic

SUBMARINE COMMAND (1951)
• 2020 HD Master by Paramount Pictures – From a 4K Scan
• NEW Audio Commentary by Filmmaker/Historian Steve Mitchell and Combat Films: American Realism Author Steven Jay Rubin
• Limited Edition O-Card Slipcase
• Optional English Subtitles

B&W 87 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
John Farrow (Wake Island, China) directs a story and screenplay by Jonathan Latimer (Night Has a Thousand Eyes, Alias Nick Beal) which takes a very early look at what would later be called Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Screen icon William Holden (Stalag 17, The Bridges at Toko-Ri) stars as WWII Lieutenant Commander Ken White, who orders the submarine USS Tiger Shark to crash dive in order to evade a Japanese aerial attack. While the maneuver saves the submarine, it consequently kills the captain and another crewman. White is promoted, but the events on the Tiger Shark continue to haunt him and also disrupt his relationship with his wife Carol (Nancy Olson, Union Station). Eventually, he takes a desk job. But when the Korean War flares up, White is called back to active duty and asked to command the Tiger Shark once more. One of the very first dramas to tackle the psychological consequences of war, Submarine Command also features first-class work from William Bendix (Lifeboat) and Don Taylor (The Naked City).

TRAPPED...in revolt-riddled Ghandahar!
Screen legends Alan Ladd (Lucky Jordan, Shane) and Deborah Kerr (From Here to Eternity, The King and I) give sterling performances in the romantic war drama, Thunder in the East. In the mountainous Indian province of Ghandahar, 1947, shortly after the country has gained its independence, American gunrunner Steve Gibbs (Ladd) finds himself caught in a raging rebel conflict when he is unable to sell his arms to a peace-minded government official (Charles Boyer, A Woman’s Vengeance). Amidst it all, Steve falls in love with the beautiful and blind Englishwoman, Joan Willoughby (Kerr). Action and romance crescendo in a gun-blazing climax as an army of rebels lays siege to Ghandahar, ensnaring the two lovers. Rousingly directed by Charles Vidor (Gilda, A Farewell to Arms) and co-starring Corinne Calvet (Peking Express) and Cecil Kellaway (Unconquered).

Andrei Tarkovsky explained that in Russian the word “nostalghia” conveys “the love for your homeland and the melancholy that arises from being far away.” This debilitating form of homesickness is embodied in the film by Andrei (Oleg Yankovsky, The Mirror), a Russian intellectual doing research in Italy. He becomes obsessed with the Botticelli-like beauty of his translator Eugenia (Domiziana Giordano), as well as with the apocalyptic ramblings of a self-destructive wanderer named Domenico (Erland Josephson, The Sacrifice). Written with frequent Michelangelo Antonioni collaborator Tonino Guerra (L’Avventura) and newly restored in 4K from the original camera negative, Nostalghia is a mystical and mysterious collision of East and West, shot with the tactile beauty that only Tarkovsky can provide. As J. Hoberman wrote, “Nostalghia is not so much a movie as a place to inhabit for two hours.”

Coming to DVD (2 discs) and Blu-ray (1 disc) April 23rd from Kino Lorber and Milestone Film!

Household Saints (1993)
Directed by Nancy Savoca
Starring Lili Taylor, Tracey Ullman, Vincent D'Onofrio, Michael Imperioli

Pre-order: https://kinolorber.com/product/household-saints-1

Nancy Savoca’s star-studded indie gem Household Saints is a chronicle of a spirited Italian-American New York family that perfectly balances humor, tragedy, and pathos. Joseph Santangelo (Vincent D’Onofrio) is a butcher with a wicked sense of humor who “wins” his wife Catherine (a stellar Tracey Ullman) in a pinochle game. Over the protests of his mother (Judith Malina) who talks to ghosts and makes deals with saints, Joseph marries Catherine. When the old lady dies, her spirit is channeled into her granddaughter Teresa who yearns to serve God. Perfectly embodying a modern day Bernadette, Lili Taylor imbues Teresa with a mix of dedicated innocence and naïveté. Executive produced by Jonathan Demme, with memorable performances from Michael Imperioli, Michael Rispoli and Victor Argo, Household Saints showcases a unique voice in 1990s independent filmmaking.

Household Saints has been digitally restored and remastered by Lightbox Film Center at University of the Arts (Philadelphia) in collaboration with Milestone Films with support from Ron and Suzanne Naples. Restoration Supervisor: Ross Lipman, Corpus Fluxus. Picture Restoration: Illuminate Hollywood. Sound Restoration: Audio Mechanics.

Special Features:
*Renata (1982, Nancy Savoca’s student film)
*Bad Timing (1983, Nancy Savoca’s student film)
*The Many Miracles of Household Saints (2023, making-of documentary by Martina Savoca-Guay)
*Archival interviews with Jonathan Demme, Vincent D’Onofrio, Tracey Ullman, Lili Taylor, Nancy Savoca, Richard Guay, Judith Malina, Peter Newman
*Interview with Nancy Savoca and Lili Taylor by Richard Guay (Courtesy of and © The Criterion Collection)
*Re-Release Trailer
*Optional English SDH subtitles

Coming to Blu-ray April 30th from Kino Classics and the Library of Congress!

Vitagraph Comedies
3-Disc Set

Pre-order link (and full list of films): https://kinolorber.com/product/vitagraph-comedies

The history of screen comedy did not begin with Charlie Chaplin or Buster Keaton. Prior to their appearances on the American screen, an entire generation of comedians was already establishing (and breaking) the boundaries of this rapidly evolving genre. While working at the Vitagraph Studios, music hall artists such as John Bunny, Frank Daniels, and Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Drew retooled their brands of comedy into something uniquely cinematic, advancing the art form and setting the stage for the slapstick explosion. This three-disc collection, presented by the Library of Congress, showcases the bold innovation of these overlooked pioneers, including the ingenious trick film The Disintegrated Convict, the gender-bending irrereverence of Edith Storey, and the epic scale of Larry Semon’s The Sawmill. Vitagraph Comedies also provides precious glimpses of comedians (e.g. Flora Finch or the comedy duo Montgomery and Rock) who are virtually forgotten today, because so little of their work has survived.

Special Features
*Interviews with curators Rob Stone, Lynanne Schweighofer and George Willeman, and film historian Rob Farr
*Audio commentaries for every film by historian Anthony Slide

Will enjoy the super rare John Bunnys in this set, but hope that the legendary Bachelor Buttons and A Cure For Pokeritis appear in HD some day. Love the fabulous Flora Finch too!
