    It's been three weeks since the last inquiry. Sony/Columbia has announced the "Bad Girl's of Noir" collections for 2/9/2010, yet not a word on Rita Hayworth, originally set for 2/23/2010, along with Columbia Film Noir volume two. Volume one of the latter appears to have been critically and sales wise well received. I presume Sony hasn't forgotten them, but doesn't intend to release them, at least in February. They still on sale at the Amazon. Sony should make clear what their intentions are.

    I thought Film Noir 2 became the two Bad Girls of Film Noir releases?

    No. There was supposed to be a Volume 2 Film Noir set with IN A LONELY PLACE, NIGHTFALL, CITY OF FEAR, PUSHOVER, and THE BROTHERS RICO.

    It wouldn't surprise me. Bad Girls of Film Noir is 8 films! Surely that will cover the Noir budget for at least the first 3 months of the year.

    What we really need is the new Gilda transfer released on Blu-ray. :D

    Our sources at Sony have informed me that Rita will most
    likely be available the second half of 2010. It is currently
    being delayed due to normal schedule changes and
    additional work.

    Also, Noir Classics 2 will come out in 2010 in addition
    to the two Bad Girls volumes.

    Thanks for the update regarding Rita and the webiste, Ron. I'm really excited what other Columbia Classics might get a release this year and are still unknown.

    wow, i pre-ordered this set from amazon last may, and it has been postponed twice now!!

    i can only hope-dream really- that the delay may be due to sony adding more films to the set..... i mean, how long can it take to film a special feature short?

    i hope sony will expand this set to match the size and scope of the william castle box set from last year. that would be nice.

    and i know they are working on remastering 'the lady from shanghai'..... that and the two astaire-hayworth musicals (remastered) added to this set would be fantastic and worth the wait.

    I just checked Amazon and I did not see a release date yet for this box set; does anyone else have an update? I am so looking forward to purchasing it, whenever it is released.

    I'll wait for the Blu-ray 3D release of Miss Sadie Thompson. Of course if this problem they are having with 3-D ghosting on the first Blu-ray 3D release of Monsters vs. Aliens is not fixed I'll pass.

    It's time again to ask the question. When is the Rita Hayworth Collection going to be released? The latest speculation I read is November. Can anyone confirm?

    Up until a few weeks ago Amazon had no date listed; now it clearly (and finally) lists a release date of November 2.
