Hey, just look at those mistakes! The cinematographers should be Harry Wild (Jane Russell's favorite) Leo Tover, Joseph La Shelle and William Snyder. I hope more care was taken with the transfer!

If the picture is not too bad and has stereo sound, directional dialog I'll buy it.

Coming March 8th from CODE RED and Kino Lorber!
https://www.kinolorber.com/product/starflight-one-blu-ray

Starflight One (1983)
• Brand New 2K Master
• Theatrical Trailer (Newly Mastered in 2K)
• Optional English Subtitles

Color 115 Minutes 1.66:1 Not Rated
Special effects guru John Dykstra (Star Wars) brings his technical expertise to this futuristic vision of the maiden flight of the world’s first hypersonic transport jet. Touted as a technological breakthrough, the super-speed aircraft debarks amid much fanfare. All systems are “go” until a misguided missile renders the craft helpless, pushing it into a deadly orbit above Earth that threatens the total annihilation of its passengers. Time is running out for the Starflight One, a.k.a. Starflight: The Plane That Couldn't Land, in this nerve-jangling space-age disaster movie directed by suspense specialist Jerry Jameson (Airport ’77, TV’s Superdome) with music by the great Lalo Schifrin (Coogan’s Bluff, Bullitt). Heading the all-star cast of this sci-fi adventure are Lee Majors (TV’s The Six Million Dollar Man) as the ship’s captain, Hal Linden (TV’s Barney Miller) as the scientific genius behind the machine, Tess Harper (Tender Mercies) as Majors’ wife, Lauren Hutton (Gator) as Majors’ lover and Ray Milland (Panic in Year Zero) as the high-powered chairman of the aerospace company.

Odd choice to put Robert Webber on the cover but not in the press release.

Thanks, I think I’m gonna pull the trigger on this one. I recently ordered the Spanish version of Circus World, and was beyond satisfied with that release

Did you order it? Would love to know how the video looks and if it is stereo sound.

A shout out to Kino for a fine job on "The Great Escape" 4K disc. I initially had some misgivings when this was announced because it doesn't have any HDR. However, after viewing the 4K disc, I'm very pleased with it. Also, the audio commentary by Steve Mitchell and Steven Rubin is excellent. :thumbsup:

I actually held off, once I read the poster’s comment about the picture only being “okay”. I might still get it, but hoping that Kino surprises us with an announcement soon

Found a video on youtube.com. Looks like it was squeezed.

I recall many many years ago watching Siskel and Ebert when they reviewed the then new release The Grey Fox. Of course, they loved it. I never saw the film until just now when I watched my beautiful Kino Blu-ray. I loved it too, but it struck me how much the music and look of the film reminded me of James Cameron's Titanic. I don't think that's an accident.
