Ah, one of the great character actors! My first recollection of Elisha Cook, Jr was as Wilmer Cook in The Maltese Falcon. Thanks, Kino for bringing us The Lonely Man on blu-ray!

Please, enough with the Elisha Cook posts. He was a prolific character actor in too many movies and TV shows to list in this Kino Announcement thread.

Come Back, Little Sheba (1952) B&W 96 Minutes 1.37:1 NR
Based on William Inge’s classic play, Come Back, Little Sheba is the stirring tale of a life-weary couple who rescue hope from the ruins of the past. Shirley Booth (TV’s Hazel) stars as Lola, slovenly housewife to Doc Delaney (Burt Lancaster, Elmer Gantry), a recovering alcoholic. The Delaneys’ life is dull and unchanging, but takes a dramatic turn when the couple take in a charming boarder, Marie (Terry Moore, Shack Out on 101, in an Oscar-nominated role). Marie becomes the daughter the Delaneys never had. But when Marie takes up with a boorish boyfriend (Richard Jaeckel, The Devil’s Brigade), Doc descends into a jealous tailspin and must once again face the temptations of the bottle. Lancaster, in an early and unconventional leading-man part, displays his towering talent; Booth, reprising her Tony Award-winning Broadway role, gives an Academy Award-winning performance (Best Actress, 1952) in her tour-de-force movie debut. Sharply directed by Daniel Mann (The Rose Tattoo) and photographed by James Wong Howe (Hud), Come Back, Little Sheba is an unforgettable film shimmering with life-truths and dramatic intensity.

The Country Girl (1954) B&W 104 Minutes 1.66:1 NR
Three legendary performers at the peak of their screen careers joined forces in this riveting film adaptation of Clifford Odets’ acclaimed play. Bing Crosby (Going My Way, Road to Utopia) is Frank Elgin, an alcoholic, guilt-ridden former music star desperate to make a comeback. William Holden (Stalag 17, Sunset Boulevard) is the hotshot Broadway director in need of a “name” star for his new stage production. And Grace Kelly (High Noon, Rear Window) is The Country Girl—Frank’s long-suffering wife, who’s both weary of her husband’s weaknesses and wary of the director’s motives. Nominated for 7 Academy Awards including Best Actor (Crosby) and Best Picture of 1954, this sterling melodrama from writer-director George Seaton (Miracle on 34th Street, The Proud and Profane) earned Kelly an Oscar (Best Actress, 1954) for her strong and passionate performance as well as one for Seaton’s spellbinding screenplay.

The Rose Tattoo (1955) B&W 117 Minutes 1.78:1 NR
When Tennessee Williams (A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof) wrote The Rose Tattoo, he had one actress in mind—Anna Magnani (The Fugitive Kind). Williams’ sense of casting proved as sharp as his ear for dialogue. Magnani won an Oscar (Best Actress, 1955) for her bravura portrayal in this torrid drama that also earned Academy Awards for Best Cinematography (James Wong Howe, Hud) and Art Direction. Magnani plays Sicilian seamstress Serafina Delle Rose, who retreats from the world when her beloved husband dies. But Serafina reawakens to life’s joys when she meets Alvaro (screen icon Burt Lancaster, The Rainmaker), a happy-go-lucky truck driver who has the same sunny openness her husband had, even the same occupation. And on his chest is the same symbol of love, The Rose Tattoo. Masterfully directed by Daniel Mann (Come Back, Little Sheba), this lusty, passion-filled classic garnered a total of 8 Academy Award nominations including Best Supporting Actress (Marisa Pavan, The Midnight Story), Costumes (Edith Head), Editing (Warren Low), Score (Alex North) and Motion Picture (Hal B. Wallis).

“Anniversary edition” is pretty lacking… disappointed in the lack of anything other than commentaries/trailers.

I have the Imprint Rose Tattoo which looks just fine to me and I'm content with it but the Julie Kirgo commentary on KL's release means I'll have to double dip!

Julie is great. I justify having to pay silly ebay prices for out of print Twilight Time discs just to read her notes in the packaging etc. I learn something new from all of her writings.

It wasn't; there exist uncropped full-1.37:1 16mm prints of Invasion.

I possess one of the uncropped 16mm syndication TV prints, which was struck in 1969. The question that has always intrigued me is whether any of the uncropped 16mm pre-print elements have even survived today (knowing the history with the 35mm OCN)---unlikely they would facilitate a satisfying transfer if they even exist...but still curious.

If I'm correct, all full-frame home video versions, even going back to the first Nostalgia Merchant Beta tape I had (more like my dad) when I kid in the early 80s, are center extracted from the SuperScope elements---

I’d bet that 35 1.37 survives.

Siskel & Ebert did a great episode all the way back in 1988 on the aspect ratio problems of home video presentations.
