    First of all, I just bought THAT'S THE WAY OF THE WORLD and I think it's great. It's obvious that care went into this release, from the booklet with essay and ad art to the inclusion of trailers and commentary from selected members of Earth Wind and Fire. (Although their timeline is a little off - Harvey Keitel was headlining movies like Scorsese's WHO'S THAT KNOCKING AT MY DOOR long before the making of THAT'S THE WAY, as opposed to it being the debut they claimed it was. But hey, they're music guys, not movie guys.)

    As such, I'm quite curious about the plans you may have for titles that BCI has already been associated with or just acquired.

    Right off the bat, will there be any revisiting of the Bob Hope titles you inherited from Fremantle Media and Sony Pictures? Or will they be reverting to another party soon? Since Paramount started (and, sadly for now, stopped) the momentum of classic comedy reissues with their Jerry Lewis collection, it would be great to have deluxe editions of the Hope films with supplements like trailers or interviews with his surviving collaborators like Phyllis Diller or Jane Russell.
    For that matter, if there is any overlap between movies that you have licensed and movies that were issued as PD, such as THE BLACK GESTAPO, will they be revisited with new transfers or bonus features?

    Meanwhile, are there any releases planned for these films that, unless I'm wrong, would be in the library packages you've picked up from Crown Int'l, Bryanston, and others:

    ESCAPE FROM WOMEN'S PRISON
    THE KINKY COACHES AND THE POM-POM PUSSYCATS
    SYMPTOMS
    THE HOUSE THAT CRIED MURDER
    THE LAST PORNO FLICK
    CARAVAN TO VACCARES
    NIGHTMARE IN WAX
    LITTLE LAURA AND BIG JOHN
    CHAIN GANG WOMEN
    THE KIDNAPPING OF THE PRESIDENT
    TENDRES COUSINES
    RUNNING WITH THE DEVIL
    THE BLUE SEXTET
    KILL SQUAD
    HEAD ON

    Keep up the great work!

    HOUSE THAT CRIED MURDER is already out from Brentwood, on their BLOOD BATH 4 pack, under another title THE BRIDE.

    LITTLE LAURA AND BIG JOHN is coming out as a double bill with VAN NUYS BLVD.

    It would be nice if they revist KIDNAPPING OF THE PRESIDENT, as the old Rhino dvd was horrible, my old Continental video tape was much much brighter than the DVD!

    KILL SQUAD and KINKY COACHES was released by a very small company called Summa Vista, not Crown nor Braynston.

    When Cliff announced BLOOD SONG, which was also a Summa Vista release, I suspected that perhaps the same licensors that held the Bryanston titles also had the Summa Vista library as well. I'm sure he'll set me straight.
