    Yes, I am finally going to get those. Those and the Vaughn Monroe flick. I'm not much into the singing cowboy thing but I love Roy Rogers and the Sons of the Pioneers, Vaughn Monroe did the best version of Ghost Riders In The Sky so I'm getting that movie he's in.

    Though I don't own a 3-D TV to get the full effect, I'm happy to see any release of a classic Woody Woodpecker short. Now if someone would just release them all in one collection, similar to Kino's Pink Panther volumes.

    Totally agree Josh and Kevin. The Roy Rogers films are delightful as is Singing Guns with Vaughn Monroe. All worthwhile purchases.

    Well, they are almost all in a couple of collections already (on DVD at least), Universal's Woody Woodpecker & Friends Vols. 1 & 2. All the classic Woody Woodpecker cartoons, uncut and in good shape, from his debut in the Andy Panda cartoon, Knock Knock (1940) through Jittery Jester (released at the end of 1958), are included, as well as some of the better Andy Panda shorts, ditto for Chilly Willy, Tex Avery's four classic 1950s shorts (two of which are easily Chilly Willy's best shorts), some of the 1930s Oswald Rabbit shorts, some Swing Symphonies, one-shots, etc. A shame that there was never a Vol. 3, as that would've covered the remaining worthwhile Woody Woodpecker cartoons (which are pretty dire after about 1965, and the same could be said for Chilly Willy), the rest of Andy Panda and Swing Symphonies, Maw & Paw, Hickory, Dickory & Doc and other short-lived character series (Maggie & Sam, Homer Pigeon), maybe the rest of the 1940s and 1950s one-shots, and some more Oswald and other 1930s shorts.

    I'm ecstatic that Hypnotic Hick will be included in 3D on the Wings of the Hawk Blu-ray (an instant purchase for me), and I hope that if Kino does another deal with Universal, there's the chance we might see more missing Walter Lantz cartoons released.

    He also did the best version of Smoke Rings, at least the best vocal version. Henry Mancini's recording in the classic album The Blues And The Beat is my favorite.

    It's such a shame that many of the Republic Pictures releases have sold poorly. I was hoping to see at least TRAIL OF ROBIN HOOD (Roy Rogers) and the bonkers but beautiful FAIR WIND TO JAVA get Blu-ray releases as well as more Republic serials.
    At least FAIR WIND TO JAVA is available for rent or purchase from iTunes and Amazon Prime. It's a sentimental favorite of mine being one of the first movies I saw in a theatre in 1953. Gorgeous color and fantastic special effects from the Lydecker brothers. The volcano eruption in the climax is spectacular.

    Just finished STREET PEOPLE, WINTER KILLS, and CHARLEY VARRICK - very impressive transfers, especially the latter two. I haven't seen STREET PEOPLE since VHS format, WINTER KILLS obliterates the previous DVD incarnation and CHARLEY VARRICK is a stunningly beautiful transfer.

    Even though I'm still working my way through films I purchased during Kino's recent Halloween sale, I wasn't about to let these 2 current sales pass me by. I already own some of the sale items, but there was still more than enough of a selection to have plenty of choices. So this weekend, I bought 9 items from the While Supplies Last sale and 6 from the Noirvember sale. Some are films I've wanted but weren't a high priority at the time of release or during past sales, and I want to grab them now before they're gone. Others are films I'm willing to take a chance on based on the low prices.

    While Supplies Last Purchases
    [Blu-ray] Buffalo Bill and the Indians (1976)
    [Blu-ray] Cops and Robbers (1973)

    [Blu-ray] The High Commissioner - aka Nobody Runs Forever (1968)
    [Blu-ray] Kotch (1971)
    [Blu-ray] Midas Run (1969)

    [Blu-ray] Pursuit (1972)
    [Blu-ray] Sam Whiskey (1969)
    [Blu-ray] Target: Harry (1969)
    [Blu-ray] Vigilante Force (1976)


    Noirvember Purchases
    [Blu-ray] The Girl Hunters (1963)
    [Blu-ray] The Mind Benders (1963)
    [Blu-ray] Road House (1948)
    [Blu-ray] The Scar - aka Hollow Triumph (1948)
    [Blu-ray] Scarlet Street (1945)
    [Blu-ray] The Woman in the Window (1945)


    Physical media going by the wayside? In my home, not so much. ;)

    My purchases from these two most recent Kino sales:

    While Supplies Last:
    Pauline at the Beach

    Noirvember:
    The Girl Hunters
    The Mind Benders
    Naked Alibi
    The Hitch-Hiker
    Desert Fury
    Seven Days to Noon.

    Between the Kino, B&N 50% off Cohen Media, and B&N 50% off Criterion sales, my wallet took a real pounding this November...but it was worth it!
