    I would enjoy having I Married a Monster from Outer Space on blu also. Would be a day one purchase for me.

    Thanks much for the info and clarifications, Mr. Lime. Every time I (as an outsider) think I have things logically pinned-down, as far as film rights (ditto for TV series) go, there seems to be yet another twist or turn. What a complex (and sometimes nutty) world the film/media business is! :laugh:

    Anyway, I'll be looking forward to seeing (and purchasing) whichever titles do end up getting released under the Kino label (and the one through another company). :cool:

    You are correct. I would love to see these released as DVDs (although some of the Trucolor Roy Rogers titles would look great on Blu-Ray.)

    Look, if Kino put out the Republic serials on DVD, that would be just as great as Blu Ray. On the other hand, define deserving. There's some very good serials, especially from 1939-1946. And they were a part of the pop culture landscape for decades. Just saying.

    As an Alistair MacLean fan, KLSC's already made me very happy with The Satan Bug, Breakheart Pass, and When Eight Bells Toll.....so I'd love to see Fear is the Key if it's part of the deal! And Bear Island if you could get the rights to it!

    I think he meant last in regards to Blu-ray availability, not production. :)

    Thank You. Certainly the first 1/2 dozen. This would have been a 40th Anni for Bugsy Malone a film that I think hasnt been on DVD because it never was a popular hit in the States. GOODBARs 40th is next year. What was once deemed to be One of the Geatest Films of All Time and An Important Film could not exist without its perfect soundtrack. AMERICAN HOT WAX seems hopeless at this point.

    A Seperate Peace with its literary pedigree; The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz with the vastly underrated Richard Dreyfuss performance; Bloodline with its romance/thriller bloodline that always sells and especially Demmes Citizens Band/Handle With Care which struggled as much in its theatrical life as it has on video. And yet its a great film. These are the surprise omissions.

    maybe you should've said "only" or "few" instead of "last" :)

    The deal includes some silent films, two serials and a few 3-D films.

    What I meant was it was his only film I believe not available on bluray.

    In addition to these two films, I also forgot to ask about The Pleasure Of His Company (also starring Fred Astaire). Is there any hope for any of these three films (or any musicals from the 50s)? Also, if you can't tell me about these, can you tell me whether you have announced everything in your deal with Fox, or are there more on the horizon?

    Two serials? Really??? On Blu Ray hopefully???

    While I'm always excited for any and all vintage 3-D films, tell your bosses they just got two guarranteed sales!

    I hope there's more serials than just two, but hey, I'll take them (he said hoping one was Haunted Harbor and the other Mysterious Doctor Satan)!

    Oh, and of course the 3-D movies are already to be considered purchased.

    I've bought both The Invisible Monster and Flying Disc Man From Mars serials Blu-Rays from Olive Films. I'll also be purchasing the Commando Cody serial Blu-Ray too.

    I'd much rather see serials on Blu-Ray than DVD.

    Any chances for a Ridley Scott commentary or a Charles de Lauzirika documentary on the disc for 1492?

    Same here, I also own the same 2 blus that you mentioned, and have also pre-ordered Commando Cody. Hoping to see Radar Men from the Moon hit blu.
