Hi all... I am trying to update the Sight and Sound list that Jung Woo initially created... with the listing of which S+S films are out on DVD/ coming soon/ no plans etc. This might be better for the Software section I suppose, but as it really relates to the films on the S+S list, I will put it here and see if it gets moved. Isn't 2002 a year for a new list from S+S ?? Please indicate any errors in the new listing and I will attempt to correct them. Cheers, Gary UPDATED: Those movies already released on DVD are listed in red color, announced titles in purple , titles that are rumored to be planned blue , and the rest are in black colors. Title (Director) - Distributor (VHS) 1. Citizen Kane (Welles) - Warner's restoration is adequate. 2. The Rules of the Game (Renoir) - Criterion is expected to release it in 2002. 3. Tokyo Story (Ozu) - gathering dusts in New Yorker vault 4. Vertigo (Hitchcock) - gloriously restored on Universal DVD 5. The Searchers (Ford) - Warner DVD. Well, they could have done it better. 6. L'Atalante (Vigo) - New Yorker is sitting on this, too! The nerve! 6. Battleship Potemkin (Eisenstein) - Image DVD. But restored one will be coming from Criterion, maybe 2001. 6.

It even got a spine number of #98, so I'm giving it a purple mark. 13. The Bicycle Thief (De Sica) - Image DVD with not so great transfer. 13. The General (Keaton) - Image/Kino DVD - basically transfer of splendid VHS to DVD. 13. Seven Samurai (Kurosawa) - Criterion says it all. 13. Singin' in the Rain (Kelley/Donen) - Warner DVD. 18. City Lights (Chaplin) - Image DVD. great quality. 19. Breathless (Godard) - Fox Lorber (Connoisseur) 19. Letter from Unknown Woman (Ophuls) - Artisan? 19. Pierrot le fou (Godard) - Fox Lorber - OK transfer, though it could be better. 19. Raging Bull (Scorsese) - MGM DVD. looks good. 19. Ugetsu Monogatari (Mizoguchi) - Janus film collection, which means Criterion could give it Criterion treatment. (Home Vision) 19. Wild Strawberries (Bergman) - Criterion is apparently planning to release this gem in 2002. 25. Intolerance (Griffith) - Image DVD. 25. Paisan (Rossellini) - (Hen's Tooth, not a very welcome name for videophile). 27. Andrei Rublev (Tarkovsky) - Criterion DVD and RusCiCo double available! 27.

Fanny and Alexander (Bergman) - MGM I believe. 41. The Grand Illlusion (Renoir) - Criterion DVD. Gloriously restored, it was worth 2 years of wait. 41. Greed (von Stroheim) - Warner/Turner. Greed was recently restored. Why is it not on DVD yet?! 41. Ikiru (Kurosawa) - another Janus film, Criterion candidate. Available on Hong Kong DVD presently. 41. Jules et Jim (Truffaut) - one of better transfers form Fox Lorber. 41. M (Lang) - Criterion DVD. 41. The Man with a Movie Camera (Vertov) - Image DVD with very nice transfer considering its age. 41.

The Gold Rush (Chaplin) - Image DVD, good transfer but not the original silent version (It's version in which Chaplin reads intertitle).

(Video Yesteryear) 63. Chimes at Midnight (Welles) - Disney? Jarod reports that there's rumor, it is being restored by Disney. If true, good possibility that it will follow on DVD. 63. The Godfather, Part 2 (Coppola) - Out by Paramount Home Video in a trilogy box set. 63. Ivan the Terrible (Eisenstein) - Criterion released in two-part box set with Alexander Nevsky in the box set in 2001.

Distant Voices, Still Lives (Davies) - ? (Vision Video, UK) 90. October (Eisenstein) - Image DVD. Transfer not satisfactory at all.
