    I agree! It took Shout! long enough to finally decide to release anything I wanted on Blu-ray, but once they started, the onslaught just keeps coming! Now, if only they can get into some of Warner's non-horror stuff from that period...

    Since this is being released in September, it's going to be a while before you hear anything about the special features as Shout usually doesn't announce them until about a month before release.

    Yet, another film title now being released on Blu-ray that I previously purchased the HD digital from iTunes for $4.99 on March 12th of this year.:rolleyes: Luckily, I really like this movie so I don't mind having it on both disc and in my digital library.:)

    Opened my Going My Way/Holiday Inn DVD the other day after getting it several years ago, figuring I should watch it once before this makes it completely obsolescent. :)

    I don't know if it was from being in shrinkwrap for a long time (I imagine it had been in an Amazon warehouse for years before I bought it a couple of years ago), but the slipcover sure hasn't aged well at all.

    Transfer was pleasant enough looking, but I'm happy to see this be superseded by something even better.

    I was thinking about this release today, and went over to Shout Factory to see what bonus features they would add:

    Bonus Features
    • A Collection Of Vintage Shorts And Footage Featuring Bing Crosby
    • NEW Audio Commentary With Pop Culture Historian Russell Dyball
    • Screen Guild Theater Radio Adaptation Of Going My Way
    • Re-Release Trailer
    • Photo Galleries
    Had no idea who Russell Dyball is. Apparently he is an Associate Producer for Shout Factory. Anyone know if he gives good commentary?

    He did the commentary for "Dragnet" (Hanks, Aykroyd). Here's what I said in my review:

    "A few extras round out the set, and these start with an audio commentary from pop historian Russell Dyball. He offers a running, screen-specific look at the source series and its adaptation, story/characters, cast and performances, editing and deleted/altered scenes, music, sets and locations, costumes, and the movie’s reception/legacy.

    Dyball offers a brisk, informative chat. He maintains a rapid-fire pace that allows him to pack a ton of information into the movie’s running time. Expect a top-notch commentary."

    It's a sweet and engaging comedy-drama, but winning seven Oscars in a year that brought us Double Indemnity, Laura, Meet Me in St. Louis, Lifeboat, Cover Girl, Since You Went Away, Gaslight, None but the Lonely Heart, The Woman in the Window, The Keys of the Kingdom, Kismet, The Miracle of Morgan's Creek, Murder My Sweet, Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo, The Uninvited, The White Cliffs of Dover, and Wilson is not to be believed!

    I'd just eliminate Wilson from that list. I've seen a nitrate 35mm print in lovely Technicolor, and that's all that it's got going for it (well, I guess you could include Knox's and Geraldine Fitzgerald's performances). It's really a dreadfully dull film. Furthermore, this film is hagiography of the worst kind. Even Going My Way is better.
