A very good film with hopefully a lot better video presentation than previously provided in home video. This is supposed to be a restoration, whatever that means as the term has been used quite liberally in many different ways. Back in July, I watched it on TCM with Eddie Muller hosting his Noir Alley. The video presentation looked like the DVD I own of it. Anyhow, ClassicFlix has been doing some great work with their releases so I expect this release to have a much better presentation video and audio-wise.

So glad this is finally going to look good - I love this film. I had a really stunning 16mm print - could never find it 35mm although I did find Raw Deal in 35. Now do THAT one :)

Hi Martin,

Yes, it is $10 than CRIME OF PASSION, but this one is a special edition. It not only comes with the bonus features below, but we've invested in a lot more money in its restoration than the average title. It's $27.99 at classicflix.com and if Amazon's normal pattern holds, they'll likely have it in the $25 - $28 range before or right around release time.

Bonus features:
  • Audio Commentary by biographer & producer Alan K. Rode
  • Into the Darkness: Mann, Alton and T-Men - Featurette with cinematographer Richard Crudo, film critic & author Todd McCarthy, writer and film historian Julie Kirgo, film historian & director Courtney Joyner and biographer & producer Alan K. Rode
  • A Director’s Daughter: Nina Mann Remembers - An Interview with Nina Mann
  • PLUS: A 24 page booklet with an essay by author Max Alvarez (The Crime Films of Anthony Mann) featuring stills, posters and other production material
  • The mono soundtrack has been restored is uncompressed (Blu-ray only)
- David

Please do less extras to save money to allow for a lower list price. I buy hundreds of movies a year, but I just won't spend this much except in very special cases.

To counter your position, for some people this title is a special case.

Even in special cases, I would still rather spend less money and have fewer special features. I don't need redundant DVDs either. If the extras consist of more films or vintage shorts I'll pay it. (Like with Cohen's excellent Syncopation blu-ray.) But I don't want to pay ten or fifteen bucks extra for talking head interviews and commentary tracks I'll never bother to watch. The worst example of this was Melies' A Trip to the Moon. It had twenty minutes of Melies films and almost two hours of people talking about them. Then they added insult to injury by charging extra for a DVD and then putting a lousy soundtrack on the blu-ray and the proper soundtrack on the DVD. And a totally useless steenbok to boot. That was infuriating! It's good to consider your audience, not just think up excuses to charge them more money.
