I guess here your referring to the longer version of the Alamo?
Lou, I would love to see the roadshow version especially restored but given the costs if TT would get rights to release The Alamo I suspect it would be the wide release version.
The matter of THE ALAMO keeps coming up in these discussions. The question begs to be asked. If Twilight Time could acquire a hi-def scan of the 2-hour 42-minute version of THE ALAMO, would you buy? if that's all there was? is it better to get the shorter version on blu-ray than no version at all? Maybe I should start a poll.
Personally I'd buy it at the drop of a hat.
I'd buy it, too, grudgingly.
TT basically announced on their page (in the posts) that they have BRING ME THE HEAD OF ALFREDO GARCIA on their docket.
You'd have to race me (and I suspect others) to the website. I'd get multiple copies as "backups".
THE ALAMO? Yes I would get the General Release version if released on Blu. But with the possible release of IAMMMMW of its Roadshow version, I'm thinking that a restoration of THE ALAMO is not out of sight.
Frankly, I'd love for Criterion to get their hands on this and put out a "kitchen sink" edition fully restored...with RAH's full participation in it!!!
Yes, I would buy a Blu-ray of THE ALAMO in the wide release version, and still hope for the roadshow version at a later date.
How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying
Irma La Douce
From Noon Till Three
Smile (Michael Richie)
Not sure if these are available, but Jean de Florette/Manon of the Spring and a handful of Truffaut films I believe MGM Still control. Criterion may have grabbed them already.
I should have said so in my last post but same here I would buy the shorter version and if the roadshow was offered i would buy it again.
Yes I'd buy the shorter version on bluray, but I'd keep hoping that someone would release the roadshow version!
So would I. I want to own both edits.
Jolly good news. I had a hunch Twilight Time might take an interest in BRING ME THE HEAD OF ALFREDO GARCIA (1974). There's a blu-ray in Europe which I haven't seen.
BRING ME THE HEAD OF ALFREDO GARCIA has the blackest heart of any film noir I've seen, even blacker than VICTIMAS DEL PEDACO (1951). The key word there is "heart." It has a lot of heart. I'm a little disappointed by some of the remarks made in the commentary on the MGM DVD. The commentators never refer to it as a film noir, or seem aware that it is a noir. They seem to think the film is an unintentional comedy or a black comedy. It isn't. They almost apologize for it. I think Peckinpah knew exactly what he was doing and made exactly the film he wanted to make. I think it's his masterpiece. Informative though they are, I wish the Peckinpah Posse would reconsider the film and do another commentary. Either that or Twilight Time should ask Stephen Prince to do the commentary. But I am delighted to hear they're bringing it to blu-ray. Next year, probably.
Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia is one great neo noir that further develops themes from Peckinpah's earlier films and i would definately buy the Bluray. More westerns from TT would be great, Duel at Diablo, Man of the West, Lawman, Hour of the Gun, Wild Rovers, Pat Garret and Billy the Kid, i would buy any of these on Bluray.
