    Really looking forward to the Fantomas set, the OSS 117 set was gorgeous. Mylene Demongeot is a true bonus... :)

    Fantomas is on my buy list. Never have seen them but they look like they will be fun.

    I once attended a repertory theater triple-bill of JUDEX, EYES WITHOUT A FACE, and FANTOMAS (1964), circa 1965. All seats were $2.50. The other two Fantomas films from the sixties never played Seattle.

    Not sure what newer technology has to do with a release of a title? We would be interested in releasing some of these if the the needed film elements were available to us.

    I was under the impression new technology that creates 2k/4K scans could create HD masters with poor elements. New ways to get an HD master no matter how good or bad the elements were, anyway I did get the answer from you elsewhere, so thank you :)

    Ha, if only! You could do a wet gate scan that would get rid of a lot of scratches & marks (I don't hear much about wet gate scans these days), but dupes that are really faded are never going to look that good, & anything more than a couple of generations away from the original is never going to look that great. And of course the hard work starts once you have the scan, time &...money!

    Some time ago I had read a post about new equipment making it more feasible for titles with bad shape elements to get HD releases. That post is over a year old now so I cant locate it but anyway it was just something on my mind.

    This is a nice surprise... I like most of McLaglen's films. Coupled with Roger Moore too. I think they collaborated on three films within short order, this one, the Wild Geese, and the Sea Wolves. Cool news!

    Perplexed by the title, though. The basis novel was called "Esther, Ruth & Jennifer," the film has an alternate title of "North Sea Hijack". So what does "ffolkes" represent?

    I'm also not sure why if he "loved cats and ignored women," there's only one cat but four women on the poster? :P

    Yes, it's his name.

    He's holding the cat and ignoring the women hanging on to him.
