Looks like three of those titles interest me, particularly, "Anne of the Thousand Days" and "A Man Called Peter". I'm interested in "Satan Never Sleeps.

So, A Man Called Peter makes a welcome return from the dead! :) A very small minority has for ages been asking for this, so this will make them and me happy. One HTF-er in Australia will be delighted! :)Come on, Lionel: admit you're pleased!

I've never much liked Satan Never Sleeps despite William Holden and Clifton Webb being two favorite performers. Its so blatant anti-commie message always gets on my nerves, but if this is one of Fox's miracle transfers, I might buy this disc.

I never would have thought to put it that way, but you’re right - I’ve really been blown away by the high quality of the Fox transfers that TT has been putting out. It’s amazing to see 50(ish) year old movies looking like they were just made this year.

I stand to be corrected but I believe Anne Of A Thousand Days is a Universal title. Is this a one off or does TT have a licensing deal with Universal? Anyway, I'm interested in three titles (I found A Man Called Peter a chore to get through). The underrated XY&Zee contains one of Elizabeth Taylor's very best performances. Indeed, Pauline Kael gave her performance a superb review.

Cannot wait for all 4 titles. I sincerely hope Anne of A Thousand Days is a new to Blu scan, as the Euro-import region free disc currently offered has waaaaaay too much DNR and edge enhancement. January will be a fun month, as, living in Canada I generally will not get these until a full 4 weeks after they actually have shipped. But still, cannot wait!

Just A Man Called Peter for me because I love Fox CinemaScope. Hopefully this will be 2.55:1 with at least stereo sound, if not 4.0. I've already got the German Blu-ray of Anne of the Thousand Days, so I'm good there.

Very much looking forward to Anne of the Thousand Days. I mostly Richard Burton and Genevieve Bujold is an actress that I enjoy in the limited roles I have seen her in. Love this film though in every aspect.

I've never seen "Satan Never Sleeps", but the credits are a mind-boggling delight.
Leo McCarey directs William Holden in a film based on a novel by Pearl S. Buck.
This film also stars France Nuyen (aka Bloody Mary's daughter in "South Pacific")
A score by Richard Rodney Bennett and a frame by DP Oswald Morris;
so just the sound and picture on its own merits would make this disc, IMHO, well worth having.
Yup, I'm really looking forward to this discovery.:)
