Another cult movie, this time with Karloff. Not sure if I'm going to get this one, even though I have a taste for schlock.
Seems this one has been seriously underrepresented on DVD, so fans should be pleased.
Olive Films Press Release: Sands of Iwo Jima and Cauldron of Blood
Brad here. Guess its safe to assume that Olive will not be including that muddled colorized version of Sands Of Iwo Jima that appeared on VHS some years ago. Oh the colorization job was awful.
Now if someone were to do a modern digital colorization for a Blu release, I'd be down with that. As long as you also get the pristine B&W original as well.
Anyway a must-have for my Blu-ray Library.
A bit bummed that they are seemingly doing just three titles total for Oct-Nov (these two plus Dragonfly Squadron 3D).
29 Paramount licensed titles remaining
23 BD/DVD titles:
The Adalen Riots (1969)Adventures of Captain Fabian (1951)The Beat Generation (1959)Beware, My Lovely (1952)Come Back to the 5 & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean (1982)Dr. Terror's House of Horrors (1965)The Eternal Sea (1955)Flying Disc Man from Mars (1950)Hell's Five Hours (1958)The Invisible Monster (1950)The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams (1974)Man of Conquest (1939)Outrage (1950)The Private Affairs of Bel Ami (1947)The Quiet Gun (1957)The Shanghai Story (1954)The Strange Affair of Uncle Harry (1945)Stranger at My Door (1956)Track the Man Down (1955)Try and Get Me (1950)
The Weapon (1956)Woman They Almost Lynched (1953)World for Ransom (1954)6 DVD-only releases that need Blu-ray upgrade:The Buccaneer (1938)The Lawless (1950)No Man of Her Own (1950)Pony Express (1953)Something to Live For (1952)Tropic of Cancer (1970)
Yeah, I'm thinking this might be it for 2014, save for maybe 1 more. December will likely be skipped entirely like they have been doing in the past. Hopefully the new 2015 releases start in January or February instead of April.
Also, you forgot one more upcoming Republic/Paramount film : Try and Get Me (1950) making the total 29 remaining.

Sands of Iwo Jima now in my Amazon cart, via your link.
Should be a lot better than that crappy colorized version on VHS they did some years ago.
Still wouldn't mind seeing a well-done digital colorization done of this film. Of course now I'll have the "Film Heretic" label tossed my way but what the heck.
