    I have ordered The Eye of the Needle and From Noon Till Three. Looking forward to their release for an excellent evening's viewing.

    Eye Of The Needle will be one for me, I think. A great little thriller with a terrific Miklos Rozsa score.

    Any chance TT could do a release of the 1939 classic The Rains Came, starring Tyrone Power and Myrna Loy? It's better than The Rains of Ranchipur imho....

    I find it a little odd that Sleepless in Seattle was ever one of their titles. I remember it be pretty successful and popular. I suppose you could say the same for some other titles like 9 to 5, but Sleepless only goes back to the 90s.

    Today on TT's facebook page I suggested The Age of Innocence, Scorsese's wonderful adaptation of Edith Wharton's novel. They "liked" the suggestion, which perhaps means they already had it in mind? Hope so.++

    I've asked TT a number of times concerning The Age Of Innocence without really getting any answers. 'Rumor' had it with Criterion but if TT gets it that's ok too.. The film went through a full restoration a few years ago that should make any forthcoming Blu Ray a huge improvement over the DVD.

    TT has released such Sony/Columbia classics as Oliver, Remains of the Day, A Man For All Seasons as well as Sense and Sensibility. All films I would have thought that Sony would release themselves. Thus, it is highly possible(likely) that TT would be getting Age of Innocence.

    I hope I'm not telling tales out of school ...

    but the SAE TT 7 for $70.00 bundle sale has been updated ...
    American Buffalo has been included until September 12 (after which all the remaining copies will have to be destroyed :( )... while IT is not discounted further ... can be added to six other titles to complete a seven title package ...

    There's a rumor that TT might be negotiating with Paramount to see if they can release one or more of their titles. Just to waste time I'll suggest a few favorites from Paramount from the late 1940s and early 1950s. Isn't the pre-1948 Paramount catalog owned by someone else--Universal, maybe? Anyway, here are some good (imho) titles from Paramount from long, long ago....

    The Heiress, 1949
    The Furies, 1950
    A Place in the Sun, 1951
    When Worlds Collide, 1951
    The Greatest Show on Earth, 1952
    The War of the Worlds, 1953
    Roman Holiday, 1953

    The Heiress is a tremendous movie and has become one of my favorites of all time. Would look forward to any future Blu Ray. Would really love it if Aaron Copland's grand score was fully reinstated.

    That stated all of these films are worthy of Blu ray upgrades.

    The Heiress is owned by Universal now. The Furies is with Criterion only on DVD at the moment, but I am sure a Blu-ray will appear at some point. Once the deal with WB ends this year nobody knows what will happen to the catalog library. Paramount may just keep certain titles in print and could license a majority of titles to other labels. My guess is that certain titles like A Place in the Sun, The Miracle of Morgan's Creek, Roman Holiday and War of the Worlds may be enticing to Criterion. There are certainly enough titles to go around and it will be interesting to see what happens next year.

    Are most pre-1950 Paramount titles owned by Universal?

    Oh, Nick, may I recommend consideration of "With A Song in My Heart" for a BD release? I know Fox issued it on DVD, but it's a beaut of a film and could stand a classy presentation. I wonder if you could team up with someone to get an isolated score on both the BD and as a CD release?

    Being released as a DVD by FOX would not preclude TT from releasing it ... as they released Stormy Weather unfortunately with the same commentary but with superior Image and Sound

    I hope I'm not repeating myself but John Boorman's Hope and Glory would be a great film for TT to reissue. Lovely film.

    And I agree Age of Innocence would be a welcome blu-ray.

    :( I thought today was the last day to get it. I didn't realize until I checked this thread that it was yesterday.

    Another fan of Hope and Glory here!++

    I've been buying lots and lots of TT blu-rays lately—about half on sale and about half full price. I've doubled my TT collection, and in the process lightened my wallet quite a bit. But I have been treating myself to a few movies a week at home, which is a real treat. Many of these are blind buys for me, which makes it extra special because they are just completely new.

    Julie Kirgo's liner notes, which I usually read right after I've watched the blu-ray, really add a big layer of chocolate frosting enjoyment to these titles for me.

    I like movies from all eras, but I especially appreciate pre-1970 titles, and by buying titles from the 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s I hope to encourage more from those decades.
