    2K master from the 35mm IP. 2.0 Stereo. No overture, intermission or exit.

    A song does plays over a black screen for a couple of minutes after the end of the feature.

    While the lack of the Roadshow features is disappointing, it's certainly not a deal breaker. Still very excited about this long overdue release.

    Thank you for the great news, KL Insider! You guys are the greatest and I can't express enough appreciation for all you've done -- especially with your singularly outstanding support for classic 3D.

    I realize that you can't tip any hands on what might surface out of this new deal but, FWIW, I'll echo Thomas T (since I'm also a Thomas, why not?) in pleading with you and Universal to focus on never-before-released titles rather than simply blu ray upgrades of titles already on DVD.

    Wow - 200 titles! That just boggles the mind - Knowing what Universal holds - all the eras (and the Paramount Pictures they own) It is just hard to imagine what we're going to see released. But at least the titles are in good hands where they will get the right treatment and proper release regardless of format.

    Universal did do quite a few TV Movies, but I wouldn't even begin to guess - and those are an untapped resource beyond the theatricals.

    1 TV Series? (maybe more) hmm....There are gems in there TV Library just crying out for release...If there's just one currently KL have gotten the rights for, then it's a safe guess it's a good one and one TV fans are going to be happy to see!

    Two TV-movies I can think of that are Universal that have been on my Grail List for an official release.

    1966-"The Doomsday Flight" (Rod Serling penned tale of Edmond O'Brien planting a bomb on a commercial flight and Jack Lord tuning up for Five-O as the FBI man trying to learn where it is. This gained notoriety when a number of bomb threats were called in while the broadcast was still on)

    1971-"Vanished". The first ever two part-TV movie.

    Definitely thrilled to hear about the new deal with Universal! While I know I'd like to offer up a list of titles I'm hoping are included (cough*Blue Skies from 1946*cough) (sorry, I had to get one in), the main things I'd like to know are a breakdown of number of titles per decade (or film genre), and when we will start seeing some of the titles from this deal announced.

    There is only one movie I still have on vhs and that is the Universal release of UFOria (1985) with Fred Ward & Cindy Williams. A funny film that was never released on dvd so I hope Kino will.
