    Robert Ryan is the best thing about this film...But the end of the film is a little week. But BD would be fucking awesome...

    Here's my two cents for Blu-rays:


    AUNTIE MAME (Rosalind Russell)

    SPIRIT OF ST. LOUIS

    MISTER ROBERTS

    AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS


    And my two cents for DVDs:


    more silents and early talkies


    Thanks for all that you do.

    Actually, the film was originally entitles THE PIROGUE SARONG, and was a predecessor to THE HURRICANE. THE ROGUE SONG is all that remains.

    I have seen HD masters of VICTOR/VICTORIA, AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS and PENNIES FROM HEAVEN. They all (to use a phrase from the 60's) "look swell." Apparently WB hasn't yet figured how to make a profit from their commercial release.

    I totally agree. The Four Horsemen screened a few years ago in Los Angeles with Kevin Brownlow hosting the event. The gorgeous Carl Davis score accompanied the presentation. Quite a lovely looking print, too. I really can't understand why WB will not partner with Brownlow's Photoplay company, since Brownlow stated in his introduction that he wished they would. The Four Horsemen, The Student Prince, Greed, The Wind and The Crowd have already been restored for various screenings through Photoplay. It would be a matter of creating new HD masters, of course. How about a boxed set of, say, "Masterpieces of Silent Cinema" or whatever they'd like to call it? They did it with 1939 for crying out loud. How would this not be feather in WB's cap? It would be such a treat for fans of historical cinema. Also, would like to add the Robert Wise Helen of Troy and The Rose Tattoo to my WB most wanted list.

    Is Pride of the Yankees controlled by Warner? It's RKO so I presume it is?


    That one definitely deserves their attention ASAP.

    May I ask where you managed to see those other than TV or streaming services?


    Warner probably has the stance that IF they release Around The World in 80 Days then it should be a big thing and come from a new scan.

    As the costs for this would be so high this effectively means that nothing gets released. On the other hand HD versions of the movie are available on Amazon, vudu and sometimes Netflix so that will do until a BD release.

    I think that the HD master looks good for something that one can stream but with a Blu-ray it depends on the perspective of the viewer. From what I have seen it looks as if a Blu-ray would be comparable in quality and issues to the first release of My Fair Lady - we all know how well that one was received....


    Regarding the other two the quality demands for standard 35mm productions should be lower so I can imagine that releasing them in a less than perfect state would be a possibility. They should be far less problematic than Around The World anyway.

    I have to admit that I'm not very knowledgable about who has the current rights to films. I'm basing my list on who put out the DVDs.


    Altman - McCabe and Mrs. Miller 1971
    Antonioni - Blow Up 1966
    Cukor - The Philadelphia Story 1940
    Hawks - Bringing Up Baby 1938
    Hawks - To Have and Have Not 1944
    Lubitsch - The Shop Around the Corner 1940
    Peckinpah - Ride the High Country 1962
    Peckinpah - Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid 1973
    Penn - Night Moves 1975
    Welles - The Magnificent Ambersons 1942

    "The Boy Friend" please as the HD version shown on the Warner Archive is so superior to the SD version WB has for sale. The full stage views used throughout this film really need the extra detail that HD can provide. Would also like a BD of "The Devils","Oh What A Lovely War" and "The Wall" but The Boy Friend is on the top of my list.
    _The_Boyfriend__(1971).
