    Yah, I know. But they should have thought about it earlier!

    Love Me Tonight is already confirmed to be coming from the first Universal deal, and from a 4K restoration to boot. As for Christmas Holiday, the KL Insider has confirmed that there are legal issues with that one preventing it from being released.

    I've seen The Texan, but I can't remember a thing about it. I know I saw it on a screen (not TV), but where and when???
    I did see The Virginian ('29) at MoMA. Beautiful print.

    From that list, I personally would like to see Alice In Wonderland, but that seems like a longshot from Kino (unless I'm wrong with my theory, which could be possible). I know, on the other forum, the Insider said they had ONE W.C. Fields movie, with many others licensed to another label (most likely Criterion). My guess on that film being The Big Broadcast Of 1938, since they seem to have said they got some more Bob Hope films (and would only be interested in a handful of the 17 unreleased on Blu-ray Bob Hope films from Universal). Due to it being his film debut, not to mention introducing his theme song, Big Broadcast Of 1938 seems likely to be that one W.C. Fields film. However, if it's not that, I can see Alice being the film, since the Insider has also said they have some Cary Grant and some Gary Cooper. Obviously, we'll just have to wait and see. Hopefully, whichever Kino didn't get is with the "other label."

    There are decent copies of Christmas Holiday being sold on Ebay and other sites pretty much all from 16mm and possibly 35mm film prints.

    How about some long unseen goodies: Law And Order(1932), Saturday's Millions(1933) and The Gift Of Gab(1934) made by Universal and several made by Paramount: Night Club Scandal(1937), The Pursuit Of Happiness(1934), Tombstone(The Town Too Tough To Die-1942), The Parson of Panamint(1941), The Fleet's In (1942) and A Medal For Benny(1945). Anyone familiar with any of those? I might just post my own want list like others have done. Even a few getting released would be nice.

    I once saw A Medal for Benny (J.Carroll Naish was nominated for an Academy Award--Supporting Actor) and The Fleet's In when they were broadcast in NYC a lifetime ago. They must be in limbo now.

    FINZI-CONTINIS is with Sony/Fox/Disney or whoever the hell has the Columbia catalog these days. An unlikely candidate for Kino.

    My "like", as always, is automatic for "Comfort And Joy". Also, my Saskatchewan ancestors would "like" "Saskatchewan" if they could, and they'd add that the Warner/TCM is very nice and would upgrade to Blu-Ray nicely. They can't, so it's up to me.

    Skippy (1931) is not with KL. I think my boss would only add it if it was already remastered in HD, I doubt he would pick it up if it was in need of a new transfer.

    We need these smaller titles to sell at minimum 1,500 units, not sure what we can do with 5 sold copies.

    The BD disc is not the same as the DVD one. I think we only acquired the ones that were restored in HD.

    Our Cooper titles are from the 30s. We had asked for Unconquered the last time around and it was not available, most likely with another label.

    It's still with Universal. Most likely an Amazon error.

    Decent and illegal.

    Ebay has become a haven for bootleggers. And the Studios used to care and are not doing anything about it. The same with all the illegal streams on YouTube.

    The HD on iTunes looks great. I can only hope for a Blu-ray with commentary with Nancy Kwan.

    As a huge high noon fan i would donate one of my kidneys to own the prestine print of the Virginian! Many similarities to that movie and high noon. All i have is a vhs copy of it from the 80s and it is far from good quality.

    Yes. I agree. However, some people are desperate enough to want a copy of a film and so will buy it anyway. There are much better places to shop. I should have mentioned that earlier.
