Very happy to see that a favorite film of mine The Plot Against Harry (1971) will finally get a Blu-ray release. Discouraged by laughless test screenings, director Michael Roemer pulled the film from release. The film finally surfaced in 1989 and i still remember Siskel & Ebert's great review of it.

Have the Blu-ray and did an a/b comparison to the dvd and happy to report it’s a nice upgrade with better contrast and detail. Sound is improved too and some nice extras on it. Happy to see it get released again on disc.

Thanks for posting about this Angelo, I had only recently heard of this film when it popped up on the Siskel and Ebert Best films of 1989 show I was watching on Youtube. It sounded like something that would have been an influence on the Coen Brothers, so I blind bought it. It has not yet arrived but when it does and I've watched it, I will give my thoughts on it.

I missed both of your posts about the Blu and it seems, other than you, nobody around these parts knows of the film.
