Let the guessing begin…

That’s not a sled, but ‘Citizen Cane’?

Astaire and Rogers in ‘Swing Time’?

On another forum, one person guessed that the two dads might be for the film 'One Sings, The Other Doesn't'. It's a 1977 film but the story is about two women, not two men. However, it is a French film and those definitely look like Euro symbols on the baby slings.

the papoose pouch=Bringing up Baby?

and could the White Rabbit be Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1972 film) ?

If it was Alice in Wonderland (1933), then I'd be interested. As for Klute, I've never seen it, the pictures of the two stars on the film poster looking very po-faced was enough to put me off.

A few people on the other forums have suggested that the rabbit hole is actually for Bondarchuk’s War and Peace (the little pebble-like specks are apparently peas). And considering Janus tweeted about doing a tour of that one a few weeks ago, it kinda makes sense that Criterion would be hinting at that one.

I think the Euro symbols on the babies the two papas are holding hint at Europa, Europa. That’s in addition to One Sings, the Other Doesn’t. And I’m not sure what the “S” balloon is hinting at.

I think the hare and peas means they’re finally releasing Hairpiece, the long thought lost documentary on the life of Alan Brady.

I've seen speculation that the owl and the inch-worm = Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Possibly the rabbit in the hole = Rabbit Hole, another John Cameron Mitchell film (Don't see anything to indicate Shortbus, for a JCM triple feature, however).

Also, since I'm giving on-the-nose readings of these clues, I'm going to say that angel sitting at the table is hinting at An Angel At My Table.

Jesus + board game = At Play in the Fields of the Lord?

The three coke bottles could be One Two Three or The God's Must Be Crazy as for the sled on their Facebook page I guessed it could mean that Criterion might have got the rights to Citizen Kane.

If you're at all interested in acting, then you're missing out. Jane Fonda gives one of the greatest performances by an actress put on film. It's a tremendous performance that ranks right up there with Maria Falconetti in Passion Of Joan Of Arc, Vivien Leigh in A Streetcar Named Desire, Liv Ullmann in Face To Face and Bette Davis in The Letter. Yes, it's that good.

that would be a really short turnaround, Kino's release of One Two Three, isn't even a year old
