    I'm sorry to read that because this forum is a lot more civil than most boards with an active moderating staff.

    I think many of those posts were in jest as I don't think anybody was trying to be vicious towards you.

    Hail, the Conquering Hero is with Universal and was not available to us, most likely with another label.

    We're releasing The Good Fairy, written by Sturges, directed by Wyler next year. We had released it on DVD in the early 2000s.

    Miracle of Morgan's Creek has been restored by Paramount, it'll either be released by them, or they've licensed to maybe Criterion.

    Yes, it'll play both on regulard players and 3-D ones. Of course, the 3-D sequence would be 2-D.

    Poor film elements, are just that. Once they're in bad shape, not much can be done to fix the issues, it doesn't matter if it's a 2K, 4K or 8K scan. Yes, the potential cost may be one of the reasons, but it most likely due to damaged and missing film elements. They can fix some of the issues with DVNR, but no one wants that anymore. The reason why some DVD releases may look better to an unprofessional eye than the BD.

    A frame by frame restoration is also a possibility, but that could cost millions.

    We released Fox's 4K restoration of THE OX-BOW INCIDENT and some were disappointed. The scan was from the dupe negative, the best surviving film elements, the original camera negative was either destroyed or lost.

    Yes, this is by far the most civilized forum. Battlebeast and Chelsearicky, you guys should visit some of the forums, or Twitter, or Facebook.

    Same with me, I'm very happy with that Blu-ray knowing the history of Fox video library from that film era.

    I strongly agree with comments made regarding other forums. I read many forums but only choose to post on HTF as I don’t wish to subject myself to some of the poor behaviour that I read elsewhere. I love the hobby of movie watching and collecting but cannot believe how the level of personal and offensive comments that get posted elsewhere and can shift our hobby into the realm of personal toxicity.
    I am personally very pleased with the offerings of KL and others and grateful that they engage people like K L Insider to keep us informed. Also, well done to the moderators who assist us to enjoy our hobby in peace.

    Thanks, most people were happy with it. Some weren't.

    I'm watching it again now as I've been meaning to listen to that audio commentary for years since its DVD release.

    Well times the above by 158,400 (frames), and you get an idea of what an average length film would take to restore. I've heard that many of the Paramount films that were considered "safe" because they are now preserved on safety film have succumbed to vinegar syndrome. Have you seen the last DVD release of THE GHOST BREAKERS which included a new master? It is no where as good as the previous DVD releases of that title.

    Not a comment on the KL release but I do hope that OCN shows up someday. Such a brilliant film.

    What makes you think the OCN is going to show up someday as I think it's long gone? I watched the Kino disc earlier today and looked really good and is an improvement over the German BD.
