The Last Valley had stereo tracks as the Rivoli Theater in NYC in 1971 showed it that way. To me it will be a disappointment If the 35mm prints used by Kino did not have at least 2.0 stereo tracks. The Last Valley a 70 mm production and it certainly was one of the last ToddAO films if not the last.
A few years ago TCM (UK) showed The Last Valley, the picture wasn't up to much (it might even have been 4x3, I can't remember), but the sound was stereo.

Sure wish you guys could release a decent-looking Blu-ray of AND THEN THERE WERE NONE (1945), which was based on the same Christie book. The one I have is terrible.
Public domain title, I believe. Originally released by 20th Century-Fox.
Wade Williams has the chain of title and hold all the original film elements. Don't hold your breath.

The 1989 Ten Little Indians is a bit of a trainwreck. Love the book and story enough to eventually get this new Bluray with a sale. I also would love to see a restoration of the 1945 And Then There Were None.

I loved this movie. Edwards was so smart he grew up to be a doctor.

Viktor und Viktoria is a charming film, but do not expect any gay subtext here (not kosher in Nazi Germany). That was added by Blake Edwards.
I'm looking forward to Paracelsus.
I wish Isadora had been available in a longer cut.
Let's be grateful for what we do get.
Strictly speaking Schünzel’s film is Weimar/pre-Nazi. The simple presence of Anton Walbrook adds some gay frisson to the proceedings, but I agree it’s not centrally gay/queer oriented. It is however charming. Schünzel’s best film as director is probably Amphitryon from 1935. The Nazis had managed to keep Schünzel at UFA up to this his last film in Germany. He fled virtually the day after it was finished. He was Jewish and along with Sirk whose wife was Jewish he was among the very last Jewish film artists to get out of Germany. Amphitryon has Willy Fritsch in Page boy drag and is, if not gay themed, extremely camp. Filmmuseum has released a restored BluRay of it. No subs, but there are fansubs Around the joint.

While I'd prefer the impossible happening (i.e., 'And Then There Were None' getting a proper restoration), I wouldn't mind seeing the mid 1960's remake with Fabian getting a release.

Not sure if that's on Kino's radar or if it's even a film owned by one of the companies they have active deals with.

Edit: Should've checked my DVD before posting. I see it was from Warner, so that squashes that.

Nice. Enjoyable film. Conti's complete score is newly available on CD.

Would love to have Away All Boats with Jeff Chandler part of the Universal deal. I don’t think it’s ever had a legit release. Love the weekend release announcements.

Away All Boats did have a legit DVD release. Good Times home video released it in 1999 under license from Universal. Alas, it was P&S rather than in its wide screen ratio.
