    That's what I thought as well for a second until I scrolled down and saw the artwork.

    WINCHESTER '73 (1950) James Stewart

    DESTRY RIDES AGAIN (1939) James Stewart, Marlene Dietrich

    WATERHOLE #3 (1967) James Coburn

    The KL Insider has mentioned a while ago that Winchester 73 and Destry are not with Kino (and may have been picked up by Criterion).

    Waterhole #3 is Paramount (need I say more?) and I stand to be corrected but I don't believe KL has a deal with Sony which leaves Gunman's Walk out.

    This gets a 4K? Well, okay...Kino turns movies out at such a rate that I guess I can't criticize their (or the studio's) choice of what gets this treatment. Haven't seen the film, but it looks like MST3K fodder to me.

    I actually like this type of movie as pure fun with no intentions of it being a classic. Those are some of the best movies.

    I agree that they are some of the most fun movies, although personally I would hardly call them "the best." I love watching terrible sci-fi movies, on DVD and Blu-ray. I only question the need for a 4K restoration. But, like I said, as long as Kino is doing the same for much better films, I have no real objection. And, what difference would it make if I had? ;)

    I think that's more of a studio decision than Kino as to which titles get 4K restorations.

    Any chance of an old Fox Lorber title, 'Beau Pere', getting a spin on Blu?

    Watched the excellent MELODY (1971) with friends last night, Region B disc. It's a StudioCanal title--any chance of a Kino release? (I don't think it's ever been on disc here, maybe tape back in the day.)
