Rats! No Boston Blackies.
And still no more two-reeler releases.
More Boston Blackie,Lone Wolf and Jungle Jim . Please .
May's slate looks fun. Seems to be a healthy B-adventure wave of films rarely seen.
Sony's also been dealing a pretty healthy dose of early talkie Tim McCoy/Buck Jones westerns that look absolutely fantastic with their new transfers. Fans of those early Columbia oaters will surely be pleased with The Fighting Marshall.
"Walls Came Tumbling Down" is a great, breezy little noir.
The Walls Came Tumbling Down had been announced in this thread for release on 3 June. Does anybody know if this will be released imminently as I cannot find any pre-order information. It stars the delightful Marguerite Chapman, one of my favourites from the 1940s/50s.
The TCM Shop has a pre-order: http://shop.tcm.com/detail.php?p=585988&mobile_browser=on
Any word on the Summer releases?
I think these are with Columbia but Id like to see the Whistler series get an official release...any fans of that series with Richard Dix ?
Yes to the Whistler series. Those and the Crime Doctor would be great for the TCM vault series.
When will Sony/Columbia bring forth from their vaults the last "classic" Joan Crawford title "THEY ALL KISSED THE BRIDE" ?
I know....Letty Lynton from her MGM years.......but Warner has explained umpteen times about the rights issues.
They All Kissed te bride would be good in a TCM Theme package with Bedtime Story(1941) and A Woman of distinction(1950) plus others as Leading Ladies of the Golden Age comedies. I would rather see these Columbia movies in box sets then single releases.
Got mine (ordered via Amazon) and it's from a great, sharp print! I highly recommend it to any '40s mystery or noir (or even light comedy) fans.
Thanks for that. I was beginning to think it might have been pulled.

Wonderful article posted to TCM's "Movie Morlocks" blog regarding Buzz Kulik's TO FIND A MAN - would love to have a proper 16x9 Sony Archive release of this! (Amazon offers only an old 1.33 TV print for streaming right now)http://t.co/0WZrfG5yB9
I have just watched The Walls Came Tumbling Down which is a great 1940's thriller. The image quality is excellent. Fans of Marguerite Chapman should also pick up Strange Affair.
still hoping for the red beret and all the young men.
