    Just so you’ll know folks, MORGAN’S CREEK is not in the Universal Television library. It was retained by Paramount due to securing remake rights. Quite possible either Criterion or Olive will get it. Still would have been nice for it to be part of Kino’s sublicense. But it is still a great film, given the subject matter that was ahead of its time.

    Something tells me that the OCN for Ox-Bow Incident suffered the same fate as the negatives for most of Fox’s Technicolor films.

    The same fate as most Fox films from that era.

    I don't want to derail the thread, but wanted to add my support for this forum.

    I've made several hundred thousand posts in various forums since I first went online in middle school back in 1997 or so and believe this community is the most pleasant I've participated in. It's also the most appropriately moderated forum that I've had the pleasure to partake in.

    We have moderators that aren't absent all the time, yet aren't overzealous with their duties at the same time. The vast majority of the time they participate as regular members of the community and you'd only know they're a moderator by the status bar under their name.

    Yet when it's necessary, they step in and guide discussion back towards the rules when we let it drift a bit too far away from the rules from time to time.

    Three must buys!
    Kino is announcing a lot of classics in new 4k master lately. Besides these 3 Cooper, there are also Love me tonight, Christmas in July, the Great McGinty, Dr. Cyclops and The Lost Weekend, that I recall.

    Kino, among the remaining 30’s and 40’s Universal titles, are there other 4k masters?

    I stop into Classic Horror Film Boards frequently (although not as frequently as I do here), because it, too, is a pretty civil group of people, plus Tom Weaver and Larry Blamire often post there. That site has incredibly extensive retention of posts in myriad categories, mostly related to genre films. I recommend it as a viable HTF supplement.

    Three fantastic releases, especially the Bengal Lancer (Henry Hathaway's sole Oscar nomination).

    I have a nostalgic fondness for "The General Died at Dawn," although Cooper's character in it, with his mouthy righteousness, wears increasingly thin as the film wears on. Quite atypical for Cooper, usually known for his quietness and clipped 'yup' type of dialogue and persona. Luckily, the rich photography and atmosphere in "General" happily offset some of the deficiencies in our lead hero. I'm glad the film is making it to blu.

    Although, frankly I would have vastly preferred "Peter Ibbetson" to all three of these. That's always been my big 1930s Gary Cooper 'Paramount' favorite, going back to a late-show viewing when I was still a kid.

    Yes, Peter Ibbetson is sorely needed in BD to render justice to its luminous cinematography (and to Ann Harding). Lest we forget, Akim Tamiroff was nominated for a Supporting Actor AA for playing the General dying at dawn.

    I'll be in for Beau Geste, if only to evoke memories of my intense pleasure as a pre-adolescent child in reading the three books in the trilogy .. Beau Geste, Beau Sabreur and Beau Ideal, all of course by P.C. Wren. Through illness I was confined most days to bed as a child, and these and others were my childhood companions......

    I'm in for Bengal Lancer as I need it for my collection, a nominee, and I'm in for Beau Geste because William Wellman is my favorite director. If only The High and the Mighty was on Blu Ray...

    Yes, "Peter Ibbetson" is a very special film.

    Zero chance of that.
    Yes, Angel (1937), Five Graves to Cairo (1948), The Ghost Breakers (1940) and maybe more.

    Which is a shame, Hathaway was very underrated.

    Put me down as another one who's excited for these Gary Cooper releases. I'm not sure I ever saw "The General Died at Dawn" but I have fond memories of the other two.

    Very excited about the Cooper films. I enjoy all three and will be purchasing them . I was happy to see Ghost Breakers mentioned. I would love to see blu rays of Ghost Breakers and Cat and the Canary.
