    I’d love either or both, but would also love The Owl and the Pussycat.

    (Hell, I’d even buy For Pete’s Sake.)

    We believe those are assigned elsewhere. And no thoughts on our answers to your last questions?

    While it is gratifying to learn several of the titles I mentioned earlier are under consideration by TT, I sincerely hope that Wilson is among them, as Three Coins in the Fountain - two Fox classics I absolutely adore. Fox's output via TT and Kino Lorber has been very impressive of late - real quality transfers. I certainly wish they and you would revisit Demetrius and the Gladiators with a new master. With all due respect, the quality of that release is not very good and, compared to the full-blown restoration conducted on its predecessor, The Robe, is a colossal disappointment.

    Recognizing, of course, that you are at the mercy of the transfers Fox provides to you, I also know you have your standards; hence, the delay on Star! (one of my favorite movies of all time). It's rather disheartening to learn You Were Never Lovelier (Sony) is held up because of a rights issue. Ditto for Centennial Summer (Fox).

    Too many great movies in limbo or MIA to mention. I wouldn't venture to guess which titles on my list are also on your 'coming soon' lists too. Suffice it to say, whatever they are, they will be welcome editions when they get here. But please - pretty please - sooner rather than later....I am aging rapidly. Well, alright...I'm aging. Aren't we all.

    But again, you've done a fabulous job with Fox in the past. I sincerely hope more comes down the pike once Disney ratifies the deal and closes the door on an independent 20th Century-Fox forever. Who would have thought?!? Darryl and Richard Zanuck must be turning over in their graves.

    I hope the folks at Disney respect the Fox heritage and treats their films with respect.

    I hope this doesn’t turn out to be a case of “famous last words”.

    Disney don't do much with their own back catalogue - they release very little of it, unless it's a feature-length cartoon - so it doesn't bode well for the Fox back catalogue. Hope I'm wrong.

    Judging on the recent ABC titles that Kino released that is true. I hoping Disney lets the Fox team restore some of those titles.

    My hopes are always up for some big Columbia films: Barabbas (1961), Lord Jim (1965) & Mackenna's Gold (1969), but Sony has to do their excellent HD work on them first (& I hope they've done one or two of them).

    Dear TT Insider
    with this news about Fox I would assume we may likely never see the last Fox Elvis picture, "Wild In The Country". What do you think?

    Will "Loving You" be listed for pre-order in November or December?

    Does Twilight Time have plans, or at least access to consider for release, any other Elvis Presley films?

    If 27 titles is a "small" list...;)

    My votes are for "Wilson", "Three Coins in the Fountain", "The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit" and "The Longest Day".:)

    We might see WILD depending on the state of the transfer - LOVING YOU is coming out on our sister label Redwind Prods - not sure of the schedule on that one - Don't think there is any other Elvis in our future at this time.

    What will Redwind's main focus be? What studios will be represented? How many titles are planned?

    Thanks for confirming the news about
    Loving You. All we need now is a release date.
    I


    Wild In The Country
    is available overseas and from what I hear & see, the transfer is quite good. Be ever grateful if TT could bring it here.

    I’m good for two copies, one for me and one for my cousin Val.

    Small compared to what I could have come up with. Did not even start a Sony list.

    :eek:

    I don't always open my discs when I get them. I guess I probably should.
