    Endless Night is a very good Agatha Christie mystery, not featuring any of her well known detectives but with a scenario and denouement very reminiscent of one of her most famous novels which fans of the author will recognize as soon as it's revealed.

    More Agatha Christie on blu ray is a good thing. I don't think Endless Night is among her best books and the movie is just okay. The best thing about it is the Bernard Herrmann score which I believe has never had a legitimate soundtrack release. I'll definitely be adding it to my collection.

    I am very happy with the announcement of Endless Night; Hayley Mills, Agatha Christie story and Bernard Hermann score make this a definite purchase (I recall it being a good movie from several viewings 73/74).
    Looks like a few more Aussie dollars are going to move to North America!!

    I had been thinking of the1933 State Fair over the weekend. I have only seen clips in reasonable condition. It was part of the Fox 50 collection for TV put together from Fox vaults by the late Alec Gordon(brother of the now late Richard Gordon) when he was let loose in the library of rare Fox depression era Talkies. It may or may not have been on VHS. It was never in the Will Rogers collection Fox issued on DVD and not in the State Fair(1945, 1963) set. I would love to see it. They did Cavalcade from that year on Blu Ray so why not State Fair?

    I bought the digital stream (can't remember now if it was from iTunes or Vudu), and the movie is entertaining but is not in the best shape. I can see why Fox has been hesitant to release it on disc. It needs a lot of work.

    That will be corrected pretty soon. Around Thanksgiving, Quartet Records revealed that they will be re-recording the score as a follow-up to their re-recording of Herrmann’s The Bride Wore Black (no idea when it will be released though).

    Well if, as someone said, it has had a 4K scan, it should look a lot better.

    Outstanding news. I have a "reconstruction" of the score from a master cylinder source, which of course sounds awful.

    Kind Hearts and Coronets was voted #6 on the BFI’s list of the greatest British films of all time! Sir Alec Guinness (The Lavender Hill Mob) became an international star with his extraordinary performance as eight different characters in this 1949 Ealing Studios classic. Dennis Price (The Frightened Bride) is sublime as an embittered young commoner determined to avenge his mother’s unjust disinheritance by ascending to the dukedom. Unfortunately, eight relatives—all played by the incomparable Guinness—must be eliminated before he can do so. Co-starring Joan Greenwood (The Man in the White Suit), Valerie Hobson (The Bride of Frankenstein) and Hugh Griffith (Start the Revolution Without Me), with top-notch direction by the great Robert Hamer (It Always Rains on Sunday) and beautiful photography by Douglas Slocombe (The Lion in Winter).

But when Henry and his odd accomplice (Stanley Holloway, My Fair Lady) melt the gold into souvenir Eiffel Towers to smuggle into France, their perfect crime becomes a disastrous caper of Cockney crooks, customs chaos and an ill-timed group of schoolgirls, all leading to some of the most hilarious and unexpected surprises in criminal history. Sidney James (of the Carry On series) and a young Audrey Hepburn (Sabrina) co-star in this beloved Ealing Studios hit directed by Charles Crichton (Dead of Night) that won the Academy Award for Best Screenplay by T.E.B.

    In this definitive Ealing comedy, Sir Alec Guinness (The Lavender Hill Mob) delivers one of his most beloved performances as Sidney Stratton, an eccentric chemist who one day invents a fiber that never wrinkles, wears out or gets dirty. But when the mill owners and workers both realize that this miracle fabric will destroy their industry, Sidney suddenly becomes the most hunted man in the nation. Can a young idealist trapped between big business and mad unions find safety in science, or will the future of Britain become unraveled by one extraordinary suit? Directed by Alexander Mackendrick (The Ladykillers, Sweet Smell of Success), The Man in the White Suit received an Oscar nomination for Best Screenplay by Mackendrick, Roger MacDougall (A Touch of Larceny) and John Dighton (Roman Holiday).

    Dear KL Insider, if you could respond, even if need be in only the most general terms, as to whether KL is possibly investigating or planning the release of any more vintage or classic American or British B+W or Color TV series?

    Love, love, love your past releases and pending releases thus far announced!

    Gold and Greed in an Alaskan Boomtown!

It’s an adventure as wild as the Northwest Territory itself, featuring an all-out fight to the finish between western icons Wayne and Scott that’s considered one of the most spectacular action sequences ever filmed. Directed by Ray Enright (Return of the Bad Men) and based on a book by Rex Beach (The World in His Arms). Beautifully shot by the great Milton R. Krasner (All About Eve).

After greed tears the two friends apart, it takes a world war to reunite them, as they refuse to let their patriotism be overshadowed by an age-old rift. The stellar cast includes legendary Stooge Shemp Howard (Soup to Nuts), Thomas Gomez (Ride the Pink Horse) and western icon Paul Fix (Red River). Directed by Lewis Seiler (Guadalcanal Diary).
