Agreed. A/V on the old DVD was never great so this should be a welcome upgrade. And funny timing, as the film was just referenced in the Dietrich/Von Sternberg set for its spoof of the two. :lol:

Got an email from Amazon tonight.

It looks like Stand-In has been delayed for about a month (estimated delivery March 20th to April 10th)

I don't know if other retailers have the same issue.

Yeah, this is about the 4th recent release that Amazon has dropped the ball on. Other retailers have the disc, Amazon delays for a month. Anyone know what's going on with them? Getting really frustrating to deal with them!

It's not just Amazon as my order from another retailer is backordered.

Was waiting for me when I got home. Alas, won’t have time for it until the weekend.

I'm not sure if this is applicable here but over in the boutique label film score CD world, there's been growing discussion (including with label heads) regarding the long time it takes to restock items due to the reduced number of pressing plants in the U.S.

I’m sure it’s hugely applicable here. Every replication plant in North America has closed except for one in Mexico. There were huge logjams and delays for Nov-Dec titles and you have to figure that there would be some residual delays.

It looks like Disc Makers in NJ is still going. I know they've been employed by boutique labels in the past. They only seem to advertise Blu-ray replication right now though, but I guess they'd do CD/DVD too.

Thanks to all for your patience. STAND-IN in stock at ClassicFlix.com and it will ship within 24 hours if ordered.

Twilight Time should have a decent amount of stock on it, but it may be a few weeks before other retailers get caught up in the supply chain as they under-ordered it their initial amount.

You've been missing some great stuff!

I try not to think about it as “missing” so much as “haven’t gotten around to it yet.”

Plenty of ClassicFlix titles I hope to one day look at!

Great to hear Josh!

FYI - This one was supposed to be our first release when we started our label back in 2016, but the sources we test scanned were so bad, that we permanently shelved it thinking no good sources existed.

Fast forward to late last year and we ended up finding a dup negative at the BFI that, while in pretty rough shape, was in good enough condition to warrant a major restoration. Take a look at the restoration comparison and trailer below to get a flavor for both the upgraded image and the plot line.

ENJOY!

- David
