Great news on Mary, Queen of Scots. This is an excellent film with a great John Barry score. I really hope that KL May be able to provide us with an isolated soundtrack as an extra.
I saw the remake last year and this version is so superior.
Thank you KL, a day 1 for me.

Coming June 9th!

Mary, Queen of Scots (1971)

• NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historian and Critic Sergio Mims
• Isolated Music Only Track with Commentary by Film Historians Nick Redman and Jon Burlingame
• 1971 Promotional Featurette

• Optional English Subtitles

• Dual-Layered BD50 Disc

• Theatrical Trailer

Color 128 Minutes 2.35:1 Rated PG-13
Acting legends Vanessa Redgrave (Isadora, Julia) and Glenda Jackson (Women in Love, The Maids) star in this sweeping portrait of two of the world’s most fascinating leaders, Mary, Queen of Scots and Queen Elizabeth I of England. Redgrave earned an Academy Award nomination for her stunning portrayal of Mary, who returns to her troubled homeland following the death of her husband, the King of France. From the moment Mary reclaims her throne, Elizabeth (Jackson) seeks to oust her, fearful that Mary will one day have a son who will ultimately rule both countries. Aided by Mary’s deceitful brother (Patrick McGoohan, Ice Station Zebra), Elizabeth schemes to arrange an ill-fated marriage between Scotland’s queen and a vain nobleman (Timothy Dalton, The Lion in Winter) with allegiance to Tudor England. Mary and Elizabeth’s undaunted quests for power leave a trail of deception, murder and holy war. Directed by Charles Jarrott (Anne of the Thousand Days) and co-starring Nigel Davenport (Play Dirty), Trevor Howard (Outcast of the Islands), Daniel Massey (Star!), Ian Holm (Alien) and Andrew Keir (Quatermass and the Pit), Mary, Queen of Scots was nominated for 5 Academy Awards, including Art Direction-Set Decoration, Costume Design and Score (by the great John Barry, The Ipcress File).

I didn't care for this movie when it first came out as I was in high school back then and it just didn't appeal to me. However, as a "mature" adult;) I've come to appreciate the acting performances in this movie and consider it a very good movie.

Certainly an interesting group you think have a chance. However, we've been told before by the Insider that only ONE W.C. Fields movie is coming from Kino (and it's been previously stated that the Insider was not counting his appearance in the already announced Alice In Wonderland). Since most of the rest of his films have been picked up by another label (since confirmed by whoever is running Kino's FB page that it's Criterion), the question remains, what film seems unlikely to have been picked up by them? While this is still speculation on my part, I still maintain that it is The Big Broadcast Of 1938, since it is Bob Hope's debut film, not to mention the introduction of his theme song (and for both of those reasons, the only pre-Cat And The Canary Bob Hope film that seems likely to have a chance at coming to Blu-ray).

OK i'm flexible, and i was one of the ones asking about all of the Big Broadcast films originally, i would gladly welcome that title along with the other Hope titles. For 1939, i am thinking Midnight with Claudette Colbert, but could be wrong, and this was all on the assumption of titles that Universal has going back and doing restorations on getting a new lease on life, figured the DeMille titles were part of that group, the DVD collection was released in 2006, and since then only Cleopatra has had a updated release.

Received an email from Kino that my April 7th titles have entered the shipping process. So as of now, even with COVID-19, they are still able to function with a semblance of normalcy

Fantastic news! Quite possibly Vanessa Redgrave's greatest performance. But which version is Kino releasing? The original 177 minute Roadshow version? Karel Reisz's 153 minute director's cut? The 131 minute general release version? Hopefully, the first.
