Oh yes! Helen Of Troy & Land Of The Pharaohs, the kind of films (& scores) that they can't seem to do these days, & both epics deliver what was on the film poster.I hope February has some Adventure, and Cinemascope titles from MGM and WB. Helen of Troy ???? For instance.
You should have. It's a lively and very entertaining screen version of the Broadway show with Doris perfectly cast and in great voice.I'd love to see The Glass Bottom Boat.
I haven't heard good things about The Pajama Game. It's one of my last five Doris Day films that I still need to watch.
Yes, this and DAMN YANKEES (also with choreography by Fosse) are two elephant-in-the-room missing titles from the Archives series. Both are wonderful, both need Blu-ray release. And....THE HARVEY GIRLS. And...SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS. And...a better transfer of ON THE TOWN & ANCHORS AWEIGH. And...HIGH SOCIETY. Hope we see at least one or two of these in 2018, but I've discovered that the Archives pretty much don't respond to requests. They simply have their own agenda.Dear LeoA ... I surprised anyone would dis the film version of THE PAJAMA GAME. Nine members of the Original
Broadway Cast were retained, although Ms. Day did replace Janis Paige. Bob Fosse repeated as choreographer.
The score is pretty much intact, and the one new song written for the film was jettisoned. So ... in short ... if you
want to see what one of the brightest and funniest musicals of the 1950s looked like on stage, check out the film.
It's an absolute gem!
I wouldn't say the last. Anthony Mann's The Heroes of Telemark is still needing a blu ray release. It's a Columbia release, so Twilight Time would have to do it. So far, nothing. But I agree that I'd love to see Operation Crossbow released by WAC. The DVD looks great so I think a blu-ray would be excellent.I would like to see Operation Crossbow on Blu Ray. It would be a Warner Archive blu ray release. It is only the only big budget 60s War movie still needing the blu ray treatment....
Anzio (1968) also fits this description and needs a Blu Ray release and is also a Columbia Release.I wouldn't say the last. Anthony Mann's The Heroes of Telemark is still needing a blu ray release.
