    It appears that a Preston Sturges collection will be released internationally this coming December.

    https://www.amazon.fr/gp/product/B01M0N2DBP/ref=s9u_simh_gw_i1?ie=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B01M0N2DBP&pd_rd_r=877244a9-dae8-11e7-a558-7b590a9b8a81&pd_rd_w=7EMjO&pd_rd_wg=Yhtff&pf_rd_m=A1X6FK5RDHNB96&pf_rd_s=&pf_rd_r=3H50CWG5S2SKR7KJ022G&pf_rd_t=36701&pf_rd_p=b2aa2a3e-4691-4349-8b50-65f9675cdf61&pf_rd_i=desktop

    The company releasing this box set is Wild Side Video. I couldn't find out much about them, other than they also released Gun Crazy and Night Of The Demon/Curse Of The Demon (both favorably reviewed by DVDBeaver).

    Most of the content is the same as the Preston Sturges - Filmmaker Collection that was released on DVD back in 2006.

    However, the two "Great M" films (McGinty/Moment) have been removed and Unfaithfully Yours has been added.

    The titles are:

    Christmas In July
    The Lady Eve
    (a possible double-dip - Criterion released this on DVD)
    Sullivan's Travels (a double double-dip - Criterion and Arrow released)
    The Palm Beach Story (a double-dip - Criterion released)
    Hail The Conquering Hero
    Unfaithfully Yours

    Preston Sturges on Blu-ray disc! I have all these films on DVD, but If Universal have done some remedial work on the elements and have produced really good HD masters, I'll be interested. It's probable these same masters will be used in other countries so it might pay to see who else produces Blu-ray discs of these titles.
