    Ya think? I already can see the posts around Thanksgiving saying "I cannot believe 200 titles and they still haven't released.... What are they waiting for!?"

    I don't think there will be much complaining. As long as the decade ratio is something like the following I'll be pleased as punch:

    1930's - 45 films
    1940's - 75 films
    1950's - 75 films
    1960's & up - 5 films

    I'm sure that would be agreeable to everyone. Just kidding, just kidding.

    For the new deal, all the releases will be in 2020 ?
    I don't know if this is with Universal, but I hope it includes the 1981 tv movie Masada.

    Any chance for Double-Features and Box Sets of the Universal films?

    Peggy Ryan did a few films with Jack Oakie that would make for some fun double-features and box sets.

    Then of course there's Donald O'Conner's films...

    Coming to DVD and Blu-ray March 24th from Metrograph Pictures and Kino Lorber!

    Downtown 81
    Directed by Edo Bertoglio
    Written by Glenn O’Brien
    Produced by Maripol, Michael Zilkha, Patrick Montgomery, and Glenn O'Brien
    Starring Jean-Michel Basquiat
    Featuring Fab 5 Freddy, Deborah Harry
    With musical performances by DNA, James White and the Blacks, Kid Creole and the Coconuts

    In 1981, writer and Warhol associate Glenn O’Brien, Swiss photographer Edo Bertoglio, and Jean-Michel Basquiat, a graffiti innovator and noise music artist who’d just begun to exhibit his paintings, hit the streets of lower Manhattan to make a movie about the bombed out bohemia that they knew, with a script by O’Brien, Bertoglio directing, and Basquiat, a naturally compelling presence, starring. Left incomplete due to money problems and assembled for release in 2000, Downtown 81, which follows Basquiat trying to move a painting while hustling for a place to sleep, became a window on a lost world of life on the margins and crazy creative ferment.

    Special features:
    *Audio commentary with writer Luc Sante and artist Lee Quiñones
    *Downtown 81: The Metrograph Oral History by Horacio Silva (booklet, Blu-ray only)
    *Re-release trailer

    The Universal 4KUHD title is a newer movie. I doubt Universal would license Psycho. Spartacus is with Criterion and if a 4K release happens, it'll most likely be by Universal.

    We've already announced most of April. The first few Universal 2 titles should come out in May. Even at 20+ titles per months, I doubt we can get all of the titles released before the end of 2020. We still have another 100 or so titles to release from our other deals.

    Any chance for Meet Danny Wilson with Frank Sinatra that is on dvd only in region 2?
    Also Here Come the Nelsons (with an early appearance by Rock Hudson) that has only been on VHS?
    The 1954 Dragnet movie which universal released in their vault series but in the wrong aspect ratio?
    Many thanks.

    Happy to hear that there's one William Powell film. If it sells well maybe more of his films can be released
    I hope its one of The Canary Murder Case, The Greene Murder Case, The Benson Murder Case, For the Defense or Man of the World.
    Also, KL I wanted to know if you have any monster movies or 40s noirs in the new deal
    Thanks!

    Thanks for the responses KL Insider.

    About 4 years ago TCM's Alan Ladd collection announced, and then omitted “And Now Tomorrow“, due to quality issues (we were told.)

    Now I realize it is available as a MOD title, but I was wondering is this title, and/or other Ladds, a part of your acquisition?

    Also, the Fred MacMurray Gershwin musical Where Do We Go From Here is another obscure film, any word on that and/or other MacMurray titles?

    Thanks again.

    What would really be cool (though unlikely), is if Kino and Universal tackled the 23 filmed episodes of the hour-long suspense anthology, Suspicion (1957), which were made by Alfred Hitchcock's 'Shamley' production company, for Revue Studios (which became part of Universal Television library). Another 19 episodes were shot live by an alternate production company, unrelated to Hitchcock.

    Directors of these filmed episodes from Shamley/Revue:

    Alfred Hitchcock (directed the premiere episode, "Four O'Clock", starring E.G. Marshall)
    James Neilson (Dr. Syn - Alias the Scarecrow, The Moon-Spinners)
    John Brahm (The Lodger, Hangover Square, The Undying Monster, The Locket, The Brasher Doubloon)
    Robert Stevens (tons of top Alfred Hitchcock Presents/Hour episodes)
    Bernard Girard (Dead Heat on a Merry-Go-Round, The Mad Room)
    David Greene (The Shuttered Room, I Start Counting, Godspell, Rich Man Poor Man, Gray Lady Down)
    Jules Bricken
    Herschel Daugherty
    (several of the best episodes of Boris Karloff's Thriller)
    Ray Milland (A Man Alone, Lisbon, Panic in Year Zero)
    Arthur Hiller (The Americanization of Emily, Tobruk, The Out-of-Towners, Love Story, The Hospital, Silver Streak, The In-Laws)
    Lewis Milestone (All Quiet on the Western Front, Rain, The Front Page, Of Mice and Men, A Walk in the Sun, The Strange Love of Martha Ivers, Pork Chop Hill, Ocean's 11)

    With Peacock...Universals upcoming streaming service and their recently announced merger with Warner Brothers for physical media...licensing deals with Criterion, MVD, Arrow and Shout! And now Kinos new deal....Universal will be very well represented in 2020 with catalogue titles we all want to see. I think all our wants will be well represented...but I dare not make a list! Great job Kino.

    Thought that would be the case but I felt the question should be asked. Is KL working towards a new deal with MGM?
    Many folks on this Forum have for years asked about John Wayne's The Alamo. If it's ever released on bluray I believe it will come from KL or Criterion

    Wish someone would release El Cid.
