    I was asking more about titles never released in any format. I was merely making a statement. I know there are more of those titles coming, but I didn't read all of the earlier announcements on this. Sorry. Thank you.

    On the other forum there was two major clues given out on the 1930's titles in the new deal with universal. All titles were previously released on DVD and No westerns in the 1930's titles.

    As this relates to Gary Cooper 30's movies in second wave. I have it narrowed it down to 7 remaining titles.

    1931 City Streets
    1932 Devil and the Deep
    1933 Alice in Wonderland
    1934 Now and Forever
    1935 Peter Ibbetson
    1936 Desire
    1937 Souls at Sea

    Note: If I had a Million would count if you count the Universal UK PAL W.C. Fields Box set that was released on DVD.

    If I Had A Million quietly came out stateside in a WC Fields set a few years ago so I don’t even think we need to look overseas to see how that might fit. I think it’s a surprisingly good little package film and I’d be delighted to pick up an HD upgrade if that wound up being one of the titles.

    Does that include coming out on MOD DVD? If so, I’m hopeful for THREE SMART GIRLS and 100 MEN AND A GIRL.

    Yes it is a very good movie and one of my favorites wc fields movies. I had no idea it was released in the states. The uk box set had serious problems with some of discs freezing up but no problem with the disc if i had a million was on. So down to 8 titles then.

    Very excited for Song of Norway and Cattle Annie.
    Song of Norway features the great Welsh baritone Harry Secombe in a supporting role. Harry Secombe was a very popular star in the UK and Australia but not so much in the US ( as far as I know; he had one Broadway show “Pickwick”). April is a great Kino month.

    Well, the likelihood of either Alice In Wonderland or If I Had A Million ultimately depends on what the one W.C. Fields film is. I still suspect it will be the Bob Hope film The Big Broadcast Of 1938. I mean, I know the Insider has confirmed they got more Bob Hope in the new deal, and had expressed interest in 5 or 6 (at least, I think that's they said the number was, so maybe the Insider can clarify if I'm right on that or not) of the remaining 17 unreleased on Blu-ray Hope titles. Now, we got the four Road films and The Ghost Breakers (which should be coming later this year) from the first deal, so I would think The Paleface and The Cat And The Canary would be the two big films they would want. After that, outside of The Big Broadcast of !938, I'd be hard-pressed to figure out what other Bob Hope films they would want. Of course, I could easily be wrong here, so we'll just have to wait and see what gets announced.

    Hopefully, Kino also got “Nothing but the truth”. Hope and Goddard are always an incredible combination.

    I don’t know if it’ll make a difference here but Universal does have an HD master for Alice.

    It could, I don't doubt that. Again, I am just guessing, based on the numbers that I thought the Insider mentioned, in between one W.C. Fields film, along with the number of Bob Hope movies they'd be interested in. I know I personally would be happy with any of the Universal-owned films,but beyond the Road films and The Ghost Breakers (both included in the first deal), and the potential of The Paleface and The Cat And The Canary, I'm not sure what other Bob Hope films would be popular enough that Kino would be looking at them, beyond The Big Broadcast Of 1938, since that was Hope's debut film, not to mention introducing the song that would be his theme song (and, in my opinion, it's better than the follow-up movie that tried to capitalize on the song's popularity, Thanks For The Memories). Again, we won't really know until the Insider either announces something or confirms titles. And they did say just today, over on the other forum, that they have three confirmed 1938 titles, so it *could* be one of them.

    I would think My Favorite Blonde would be on their radar. They've already done My Favorite Brunette.

    Most reviews have the movie as 138 minutes plus intermission. I wonder what the extra 4 minutes will be? Overture, intermission or exit music?

    There's no overture, intermission or exit. This is not the roadshow version. There's an additional two minutes of music after the G rating promoting the soundtrack, but I don't think we're counting it towards the running time.
