We have one more in the Paramount deal.

We will also be releasing some very cool pre-code (PD) RKO films - those are from another deal which will be announced later.
If the titles you mention were part of the Merian Cooper settlement with RKO in the mid-1940s, this is very exciting news! (STINGAREE, RAFTER ROMANCE, DOUBLE HARNESS, ONE MAN'S JOURNEY, RIGHT TO ROMANCE). A MAN TO REMEMBER was also a part of that deal, but it's not a pre-code film.

--well, even if they are not those, it's STILL exciting!

I've never heard of this one. Looks very interesting. Sort of Logan's Run-esque....

Great release I was just thinking about this film the other day when I was watching an Oliver Reed film. I believe this was another film released by Legend films on DVD.

These titles were purchased back by TCM/Warner and released on DVD-R in 2008 - I don't think any of them are in PD. Besides Of Human Bondage that Kino already released on blu-ray from Library of Congress restored print, other RKO pre-codes in PD are The Animal Kingdom (1932), Behind Office Doors (1931), Check and Double Check (1930), Dixiana (1930), Goodbye Love (1933), Kept Husbands (1931), The Lady Refuses (1931), Lonely Wives (1931), Millie (1931), The Silver Horde (1930), The Vagabond Lover (1929) - maybe it's one or more of them. Can't wait for actual announcement - pre-codes are not much represented on blu...

Thanks for the info, Gregory. Yes, I have those DVD-Rs, but they've been OOP for awhile, so I didn't know for sure. Whatever the announced titles are, I'll be in for them!

Mr. Lime,

I see that Fox has licensed a Blu-ray of The Iron Curtain (1948) for release in Region 2 next spring. Is there any chance of Kino releasing it here?

Thanks.

Is the Paramount title, THE NIGHT HAS A THOUSAND EYES (1948) a possibility, Mister Lime?
Most of pre-1949 sound films from Paramount are with Universal, including this one. There are some exceptions like The Miracle of Morgan's Creek (picked up for a Jerry Lewis remake Rock-a-Bye Baby), but most of the time this holds true.

To the best of my knowledge it was pre--1948 Paramounts that Universal owned and NOT this one. Can anyone tell us for sure?

Very good! The Fox Cinema Archives released inexplicably used a Pan & Scan transfer for this.

Now I can buy this film with confidence.
