    This is amazing news! I’m very happy!

    There is one 1930 comic film I’d LOVE to have, and I’ve mentioned it before... I don’t think it’s ever been released on home video.

    there are some other titles, too, and I hope
    Some of them get released.

    THANKS KINO!!

    I seem to recall a mention of Five Graves To Cairo. Was it ever released? Forthcoming?

    Thanks

    Great Universal lists, to which I'd like to add:

    Fast Charlie...the Moonbeam Rider, directed by Steve Carver, starring David Carradine and Brenda Vaccaro and many of our favorite character actors. :)

    It's just been released in France by Elephant Films, who usually release Universal catalogue films in France, so I wouldn't be surprised if it's on Kino's slate.

    Well said. And that's partly what makes this hobby/sport so much fun.

    Five Graves to Cairo is already part of the first deal Kino made with Universal and is receiving a brand new 4k transfer.

    I hope Thoroughly Modern Millie is part of the deal.

    Many thanks! I’ll ask a foolish question... I’ve read that KL will be releasing a few 4K uhd releases from the new deal with Universal. Could they be Psycho and Spartacus ? Both celebrating 60th Year Anniversaries in 2020.

    I seem to recall reading that Kino tried to license Millie in their first Universal deal, but were turned down. I wouldn’t be shocked if Shout ends up releasing the film using the 4K restoration that screened at Film Forum back in November.

    I don’t think Universal will be licensing Psycho or any of their other Hitchcock films to the boutique labels, though I could see Spartacus eventually going back to Criterion.

    I also cant see Psycho or the Universal Hitchcock titles getting a Kino release. However, their UHD release would have to be a major title that would sell like hotcakes, something like Tremors maybe ? :)

    Wow! You guys are warriors on behalf of the serious collector of vintage film and TV on disc!

    I'm sure we will love the Universal theatrical features you acquired. And I do hope you chose to release more TV movies, and especially, more TV series. We know you have to be careful with choosing what you will release in that realm, but may I make a case for Darren McGavin's Universal owned 1968-69 single season private eye series The Outsider (1967 TV movie + 26 hour episodes in the series)...The Outsider was created by Roy Huggins and is a spiritual and intellectual forerunner to Huggins Immortal P.I. series The Rockford Files...this is the only Darren McGavin TV series that has never found it's way to DVD...I would hope your success with McGavin's Night Stalker and Night Strangler might encourage the possibilities.

    But seriously, you guys are great! And we Love you for it!

    I also want to thank Kino-Lorber for the forthcoming release of The Cold Blue / Memphis Belle...and for your other forthcoming documentary Recorder: The Marion Stokes Project, which looks to be very intriguing, judging from the trailer I viewed!

    Hoping for a lot of releases from the 1940's and the latter half of the 1930's.

    So pleased to see Kino releasing A Pure Formality. My brother introduced it to me many years ago - still his favourite.

    It’s a powerful and superbly executed film, and on some level for me, packs a punch reminiscent of Rod Serling’s best works in The Twilight Zone.

    Shall definitely buy this, together with Lubitsch’s Bluebeard...
