    Wow! Clouzot: The Early Works is the sort of release that I find incredibly exciting. Indeed, this is why I love collecting. Thank you, Kino, now and always the classiest act in the business!

    Coming to DVD and Blu-ray on November 20th from Kino Classics and the Library of Congress!

    PIONEERS: FIRST WOMEN FILMMAKERS
    Executive Producer: Illeana Douglas

    A monumental 6-disc set including over 50 films, accompanied by an 80-page booklet.

    In the early decades of cinema, some of the most innovative and celebrated filmmakers in America were women. Alice Guy-Blaché helped establish the basics of cinematic language, while others boldly continued its development: slapstick queen Mabel Normand, action star Grace Cunard, and LGBTQ icon Alla Nazimova. Unafraid of controversy, filmmakers such as Lois Weber and Dorothy Davenport Reid tackled explosive issues such as birth control, abortion, and prostituion. This crucial chapter of film history comes alive through the presentation of a wide assortment of films (spanning 1911-1929), carefully curated, meticulously restored in 2K and 4K archival sources, and presented with new musical scores.

    Special features (DVD and Blu-ray):
    *80-page booklet with essays and photos
    *Interviews with historians and archivists
    *Musical scores by Renee C. Baker, The Berklee Silent Film Orchestra, Makia Matsumura, Maud Nelissen, Dana Reason, Aleksandra Vrebalov, and others

    DVD (6 discs)
    *Total Running Time approx. 1,320 minutes

    Blu-ray (6 discs) - over six additional hours of material
    *Total Running Time approx. 1,710 minutes

    Disc 1: Alice Guy-Blaché
    Disc 2: Lois Weber
    Disc 3: Genre Pioneers
    Disc 4: Social Commentary (Part 1)
    Disc 5: Social Commentary (Part 2)
    Disc 6: The Feature Film

    Curator: Shelley Stamp
    Producer: Bret Wood
    Executive Producer: Illeana Douglas

    Let us hope and pray that this epic is part of the Universal deal. I've never seen the movie but this trailer looks great...and directed by Paul Henreid of all people.

    Stick (1985) was originally set to be released in August 1984 with Annie Potts among the cast. She receives immediate after-title billing on the original 1984 poster. Potts even appeared on the Tonight Show in the summer of 1984 for Ghost Busters (1984) and mentioned the film coming out later in the summer. It was not to be.

    Universal ordered Reynolds to make significant changes to the film and reshoot the ending. Annie Potts scenes were deleted.

    When Stick was broadcast on BBC1 in 1989 and 1991, the version shown in a 100-minute timeslot had alternate opening music and the original ending.

    Even if that original version only exists in workprint form, it would be interesting to see that included on the BluRay release. Seems unlikely though.

    All the above plus STICK and THE MIDNIGHT MAN looks like a pretty good start to me. I'm in for 8 of the 13 announced so far.

    I have the German BD of "Bend of the River". The following are my comments about it from last year. I'm hoping Kino's release to be an improvement over the Explosive BD Release.

    Over at the other forum, KL Insider says KL one has one more Stewart/Mann title and 2 more Stewart westerns. He also states that Winchester '73 and Destry Rides Again are with another label. So, I'm guessing The Far Country for the other Mann/Stewart western, and Shenandoah and Night Passage or The Rare Breed as the other two westerns.

    Not even in a year by year scenario were each and every one of the films cranked by Hollywood, during their initial theatrical releases, considered impressive. With that said, I am very impressed with how physical media and Kino Lorber chugs along with no signs of quitting.

    It's impossible to like every title put out on a monthly basis by each and every BD group; that is to say, unless, one liked every film that Hollywood gave us throughout their annual history.
    I'm game for "Bend of the River". Never heard of it, but now I've got a chance to discover both another James Stewart and Anthony Mann film.

    Neither of these names seems anywhere near a slim pickings offering to my mind.:thumbs-up-smiley:
