    Once again, Barrie has done an excellent job for me providing info on Sirk which I knew very little about. That is until now and plan to buy Lured from Kino, plus A Scandal in Pars which is rumored to become realeased on DVD sometime this year, plus others as well

    Thanks Barrie

    Thanks for the link to the article: fantastic!

    I rented Lured, and quite enjoyed it.

    It is on my "to buy" list.

    I already own Imitation of Life
    All That Heaven Allows and
    Written on The Wind from Criterion.

    I just hope they get around to releasing
    Magnificient Obsession, which
    was on AMC or TCM not too long ago.

    Thanks to Todd Haynes and Julianne Moore's
    recent critical praise,
    hopefully more will discover Sirk's films.

    I hope Universal starts putting out double-feature discs of their Sirk films in their new $19.95 catalogue line.

    The Magnificent Obsession, Interlude, All I Desire, There's Always Tomorrow, A Time To Love and A Time To Die, Battle Hymn, Sign of the Pagan and The Tarnished Angels I'd snap up in a second.

    Douglas Sirk has a far, far bigger fanbase among film buffs than the studio has ever realised.
