Can someone comment or point me to a review on the KL 4k restoration edition of "The Long Goodbye" please. Thanks. EDIT: found it in reviews. 😂

I don't believe Willy McBean has ever been released even on VHS. I haven't seen it since the mid 70's would love to have it. Its hard to tell who owns the rights.

Update: It looks like a small label did release it on VHS according to Amazon back in 1992 but long out of print.
Thanks again, Randy. You are truly a fount of information when it comes to films, television series, and home media!

Hahaha... definitely know whatcha mean. I was supposed to transition some of my purchases/collecting to digital to conserve space and better organize my (arguably too large... and of course, still growing) collection, but these Kino sales (plus the occasional Powerhouse/Indicator UK import ones that thankfully shouldn't entice me quite as much going forward) certainly seem to throw a huge batch of monkey wrenches into my plans, LOL. And I was just about to finally order some much needed, reasonably affordable storage cabinets to handle my existing collection (for my currently very limited apt space) as is... :P

I may need to sit out on this particular sale (at least for the most part)... but will have to see -- maybe I'll just put a strict limit on myself to stay w/in 5-10 titles for $50-100 order, just enough for free shipping for a small batch of my "most wanted" and not veer off towards any completely blind buys (as I typically do), LOL... :lol:

_Man_

Well, like some others, I once again blew thru my planned limit and ended up ordering 19 titles totaling nearly $200 after tax afterall -- at least it didn't come remotely close to the $400 total mark I exceeded during the previous such sale though, LOL.

So where is that disc collectors anonymous support group around here again? :lol:

I restrained myself, so ordered fewer titles than temptation tried to dictate:
Breakheart Pass
The Counterfeit Traitor
Elmer Gantry
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to
the Forum
The Lemon Drop Kid (for the Christmas title)
Quantez
and not part of the sale: The Hallelujah Trail
- but discounted, 2 copies, one for a gift
Finally an order where I’m not duplicating DVDs except for the Bob Hope title, as the DVD was compromised, and The Hallelujah Trail (multiple laserdisc copies seeking that apocryphal uncut version), and the Olive Blu-ray release I never watched due to reviews.

The Hallelujah Trail must be delayed. They processed my payment last week and it usually ships before street date and there has been no shipment notification. Kino no longer has the option to call them/ customer service.

Wish they’d move their replication away from mexico. I buy 3 copies of every kino and archives title I want, to boost my chances of getting one that isn’t scratched. The duds go back to Amazon. Even if it costs $10 more per disc, it’s the price I’d pay for a non scratched disc.

With If I Had A Million being announced this morning, I’m hoping we will also see Million Dollar Legs (‘32) announced as well.


I know Six Of A Kind, Tille And Gus, and International House are should haves as well, but MDL is my next most wanted Fields title (not including David Copperfield, which would come from WAC)

Guess I’ve been lucky so far, but I typically don’t open the shrink wrap until ready to watch the many I’ve ordered from Kino. So I’ve got multiple unopened and therefore unexamined Kino discs. Sounds like that needs to change if the problem is that common.

I watched THE COUNTERFEIT TRAITOR last night. I was disappointed ...lots of print damaged visible. The color was a bit faded. It's not as I remembered seeing it in the theaters. It may be the 4K of the OCN but I don't think any restoration work has been done.
I'm watching it now and you can believe me when I tell you I will have MUCH more to say when I've finished :)

I've never had a Kino Lorber disc arrived damaged.
