    What exactly did Universal do to For Whom the Bell Tolls?

    Flower Drum Song
    Thoroughly Modern Millie
    Sweet Charity

    Was really looking forward to the new For Whom The Bell Tolls. The beautiful Overure and Entr'acte have been dropped. That was enough for me not to purchase as the Victor Young score is one of my favorites of classical film music. Then read the reviews especially bluray.com Enough said. Oh well I'll wait for TCM to broadcast it again and record....

    MYRT and MARGE (1933)

    This title is so, so overdue for a proper home video release. It sticks out like a sore thumb when you look at Stooge titles not available on home video. It's arguably the team's best work prior to their long stint at Columbia.

    Over the last several years, we've seen the solo Columbia shorts come out (Shemp, Besser, DeRita), the Shemp Vitaphones, several Healy MGM titles, the MGM shorts..... but no sign of MYRT and MARGE.

    MYRT and MARGE should have come out years ago on regular DVD or certainly as an MOD while Universal was doing those. Hopefully Kino can give it the treatment it deserves.

    ...which is why I still hold on to my DVD copy of the movie. Maybe Kino could put out a Blu-ray of the restored version?

    Only if they make further deals with Universal. For the current deal, they indicated that they are not re-doing anything already available on blu.

    Don't know if this one has been mentioned...

    Lonely Are The Brave

    One of Kirk Douglas' best with an early score by the great Jerry Goldsmith.

    Re: “W.C. Fields and Me” (1976), that wouldn’t surprise me. And if that’s the case, I couldn’t really blame his grandson. I understand that much (maybe most) of the movie has very little to do with with historical reality, but I’ve always had a soft spot for those 1970’s depictions of Hollywood’s early years. Plus, I like Rod Steiger’s performance, whether it’s truly accurate or not. Speaking of guilty pleasures, I even picked up “Won Ton Ton” on blu when it came out, I’m mildly embarrassed to admit...

    Don’t know if it’s been mentioned yet, but I’d also like to single out Bob Fosse’s first directorial effort, “Sweet Charity” (1968). Saw a screening of it at UCLA the other night, and it’s a great time capsule of the swinging era, and a much better movie than its box office receipts would indicate. It would be great to see it on blu, with overture, intermission, and exit music included, along with footage of the different endings Fosse shot, if that footage still exists.

    Yup, and I’ve got it! But there’s still nothing quite like the feeling of truly owning it by being able to hold that shiny little disc in your hands, eh? :banana:

    I love your list. I believe, tragically, THE CAT CREEPS (1930) is a lost film. I would love to see it.

    The Sign Of The Cross is being released in France on September 25th, along with, Reap The Wild Wind & Unconquered. I have the German release of Unconquered, & it looks superb, so I have high hopes of the other two DeMille's. I'm sure these will be on Kino's release slate.

    My list would be much too long. I want EVERY Universal(especially Universal)and Paramount film from 1929-1948. AND ONLY those that have NOT been previously released on DVD. Universal in particular has been very stingy in releasing their own film brand from that period. I realize that this is fantasy. I can only hope to get 2 or 3 new to DVD out of 100.
