A fair point, but yes, obviously, I was referring to the content, not the craftsmanship.
Hope I didn't come across as persnickety, as that was not at all my intention. You're absolutely correct, in terms of the subject matter being very un-Lubitsch, though I was concerned more with the emotional experience of watching the film. "The Man I Killed"--this was the original title, it was changed to "Broken Lullaby" on a later re-issue--was the first Lubitsch film I ever saw, and what surprised me was how close it was, stylistically and thematically, to his comedies, which I later saw. "The Man I Killed" was light in its camera movements, pacing and compositions, even though the subject matter was depressing. The comedies have plenty of melancholy undercurrents, while "The Man I Love" has moments that are almost humorous. And Nancy Carroll was luminous.

I was going to ask mr. Insider about this yesterday, but I forgot! I heard about it on Saturday, and wanted to know if it was coming! I’m excited!

I read that one of the reasons this film wasn’t seen for decades was because it was lost. Glad it’s back!

'The Apostle is one of my favorite films, and I had faith KL would release this. One of Robert Duvall's best performances of his career. Thank you so much!

And THAT is why (well, at least one reason) I will...AGAIN...ask that members do NOT ask the Kino Insider about certain titles or make posts wishing for certain titles--especially posts which contain poster art.

This thread is very specifically (and for good reason) ONLY for Kino-Lorber announcements and reaction to those announcements.

I saw One Potato, Two Potato when it opened in '64. Heartbreaking. I could barely stir from my seat. Although I was only 14, I was so stunned by Barrie's performance that I never forgot her name. She was a Cannes winner for this performance but was not even AA nominated.

Oh, no, not at all. Just wanted to clarify my original statement.
(And Nancy Carroll is always luminous!) :cool:

Boris Sagal's daughter Katey is a singer of some note - singing with Bette Midler's Harlettes ... I think she may have done some work in television ;) ...

Hell Boats (1970)
The Last Escape (1970)
