Ball Of Fire is part of the Goldwyn library which resides with Warners.
Which means there is zero chance on any Godwyn title getting released on blu ray. Warner has their hands full just getting their own titles released. Warner only has deals with Criterion and kino has never had and deal with warner.

My advice to anyone is just be very happy with your dvds of the westerner, pride the yankees ball of fire ect. I know i am. My latest dvd of the westerner that was fully restored on the last mgm release 10 years ago looks better upscaled than most of my blu rays from that time period. I was so happy with that restoration i bought 5 copies of it at the walmart bargain bin for under 5 dollars 10 years ago. If you saw and owned the previous release of that film on dvd that scalpers were selling for over 100 dollars you would know what i mean. That release got thown away in the trash bin that was no better than VHS quality.

I have accepted and am content on the fact that over half of my Gary Cooper collection may never be upgraded to blu ray and am very happy to have 28 of his movies on blu ray. Perhaps 29 if kino comes through on one more title "Desire" on this second universal deal. I just pick up blu rays of his films as they are released over the years. Maybe kino criterion or masters of cinema will release more some day but if not i have them all on dvd. This is how i approach all movies from classic Hollywood. Very seldom from back then is a blu ray bought by me that is not already an upgrade as i pretty much have them all. Dont know how many dvds i got but i would say around 10000 if 60s tv shows are included.

Warner has released four Goldwyn titles on Blu-ray: The Bishop's Wife, The Best Years of Our Lives, Guys and Dolls, and Hans Christian Anderson. The latter two have also been re-released on Blu-ray through Warner Archive Collection in the past six months.

Certainly some fine Universal titles coming, but also a lot of (imo) pretty minor fare. Probably Kino had to take the lesser with the better as part of the package. But there are still a few major titles from that studio that remain mia. One of them, AT PLAY IN THE FIELDS OF THE LORD, has been ignored since the laser disc days, and that was a pan-and-scan mess. Any chance, Mr. Insider?

I hope one of those comedies is: View attachment 75312
Yes. I think that be great. It is one of several Universal titles from the 60s that I would like to see released. I posted my list a couple times and here it is again: The Lively Set, Tammy & The Millionaire, Love & Kisses, Wild Wild Winter, A Man Could Get Killed, Bus Riley's Back In Town, I'd Rather Be Rich and Fluffy. Just about all of these have never been commercially released in any format.
