    One of the more surprising facts to emerge from Scott Eyman's recent bio was that Wayne was lousy with money, sinking it into frustrating ventures like THE ALAMO. I'm sure the estate keeps a tighter grip on outflow.

    Folks: Let's stay on topic, please...which is Kino announcements.

    There's plenty of other--appropriate--places to discuss The Alamo and other films.

    Many thanks! :thumbsup:

    I noticed Man Facing Southeast is no longer on the calendar. Has it been cancelled?

    No, it'll be released in the Fall. Most likely a regular Kino Lorber release.

    I've never heard of The Park is Mine but now I say The blu-ray is mine!

    image. I just saw a gorgeously restored DCP of Fox's The Adventures of Hajji Baba (1954) in 2.55:1 CinemaScope. It's unintentionally, hilariously awful, but it would make a great Blu-ray to watch with friends. Any chance Kino could license it from Fox?

    I was most surprised by how they seamlessly matched the color in the duped dissolves, and when they were over there was a quick dissolve to sharp images, like the focus had just been adjusted.

    RAH wrote a glowing review of the Deadline USA disc; congrats on a stellar release PQ wise!

    Does the BD have SDH included? Am hopeful that the good folks at Fox provided the track.

    The Park is Mine was shot in High Park in Toronto, which was practically my back yard. I remember hanging around the set and talking to some of the cast and crew. I think it was one of the earlier films made for HBO.

    I've always liked Elaine Stewart, yet another in that long line of good-looking actresses Hollywood did not take seriously, and I'd welcome a chance to see her in High Definition. I'd like even more to have The Bad And The Beautiful and Night Passage on Blu-ray disc.

    I used to have the Key Video VHS of The Park Is Mine. At the time I wondered about the name of the writer of the film, Lyle Gorch--that's the name of a character in The Wild Bunch.

    This was a Fox theatrical release oversees, but Fox decided to license it to HBO as part of their HBO "premiere movie of the month" program in the 80s - It was not produced or made by HBO. The rights to those HBO TV-movies like Blackout, Sakharov, Act of Vengeance, Terry Fox Story, etc are all with HBO.

    Most likely a pseudonym by someone famous, The Park is Mine is the only IMDB credit for Lyle.

    Love all these Lang titles. But attention paid to your earlier Murnau and Griffith releases would be nice, too...THE LAST LAUGH and BROKEN BLOSSOMS, for instance. Please spread the wealth a bit! :)

    The German titles are pretty much up to what gets prepped in Europe from what I understand.
