  1. Definitely in for The President's Lady which I believe will be making its home video debut and hopefully include Alfred Newman's wonderful underscore as an isolated track. My DVDs of Behold A Pale Horse, The Chairman and 10 North Frederick will do me nicely methinks though I might upgrade 10 North Frederick if the reviews indicate a superior transfer.

  2. Two Gregory Pecks in one month! All four titles are interesting but The President's Lady is the stand-out because I don't think it's been released on DVD. Anyone puzzled by Suzy Parker's career in films should watch 10 North Frederick. She's really good. (So is my German DVD. I'm not sure I'll upgrade.)

  3. These four film titles are interesting. I'm kind of surprise about "The President's Lady" as I've been waiting on that one for many years. It's been years since I last watched "The Chairman" and "10 North Frederick". I've never seen "Ride a Pale Horse" as it's one of many film titles that I always meant to watch, but always falls through the cracks of my film viewings. A solid lineup!

  4. Not only don't I have any of these on any home video format, I've never SEEN any of them (though, of course, I've heard of all of them)! For someone who prides himself on a long and wide life of cinematic experiences, this is kind of embarrassing. I'll have to rectify it with these four releases.

    You're not alone in that boat. It's been so long that I watched a couple of those titles that I can barely remember them.

  6. I haven't seen any of them either, nor have I even heard of any of them lol – top that ! 😛
    The President's Lady sounds the most intriguing and I can stream it which I will – and if I enjoy it Ill add it to my TT collection
    I do like Gregory Peck and have a lot of his films, I might have to check these out but there's no chance in hell I'm blind buying movies for 30.00 🙂

    Considering Varese Sarabande released a CD of Newman’s score many years ago (now long out-of-print), I’d be shocked if they don’t have an isolated score on The President’s Lady.

    there's no chance in hell I'm blind buying movies for 30.00 🙂

    For a movie I really really want, $30 is a bargain. Hell, for blu rays of Dramma Della Gelosia, Lucy Gallant, Pepe, A Man Could Get Killed, The High And The Mighty, Where Were You When The Lights Out, Raintree County, You Can't Run Away From It, Curucu Beast Of The Amazon, The Tattered Dress, Le Diable Par La Queue, Gentlemen Marry Brunettes etc. I'd cough up between $50 to $75. 🙂

    But I definitely get your point about blind buying.

  9. I was thinking that one of 20th century fox’s old cinema classics series of DVDs would be released by twilight time soon. The chairman is it! I was hoping for the Magus or Deadfall but I’ll take this one!

    It is interesting how we value physical media. Back when videotapes first became available, I remember they were priced for rental stores and not for consumer purchase ($100 or more is what I recall), and if you told me back then you could get an even superior product for around $30, I would have been ecstatic!

    Excuse me, I need to yell at some kids to get off my lawn!

    It's because our expectations and circumstances has changed since those early days of home video. Through so many different home video formats we as consumers were bound to change because of those experiences and seeing how much money we've spent on obsolete equipment and video formats. Furthermore, as you get older, you get tighter with your money as retirement/fixed income and health issues look you straight in the eye every single day.

    So true…every single word. I have become very selective in my purchases. Of these 4 fine films I'll probably purchase only one…Behold A Pale Horse…for its cast, director and composer.

  13. Based on a book by one half of the Archers and with Gregory Peck in the leading role, Behold also features the work of Omar Sharif, Anthony Quinn and Maurice Jarre, together combatting withdrawal symptoms from Lawrence no doubt.

    But the main reason I’ll be buying it is that I can’t bypass anything from Fred Zinnemann. This isn’t for me among his greatest works, but enjoyable just the same. Much as I love Gregory Peck, he seemed out of place as a Spanish Civil War hero.

    Also interested in the other three titles as well.

    I never got into VHS (or Betamax). My first plunge into home video was the laser disc. But I distinctly remember going to dinner at a friend's house back in the day who had just bought a VHS player. He proudly whipped out his first purchase. A VHS tape of The Poseidon Adventure. His partner complained, "Can you believe he paid $100 for that!". Imagine paying $100 for a pan and scan Poseidon Adventure with a mediocre transfer and today, you can get The Poseidon Adventure in crisp hi definition in its original wide screen ratio for $10!

  15. I'll definitely have to upgrade The Chairman, as it's a title I had been expecting to come out from TT for a while (last time I inquired about it about a year ago, they were waiting for a HD transfer).

    But I definitely get your point about blind buying.

    Yes 30.00 blind buys isn't well advised, but for something I want, like Warlock, I already ordered it on TT's website 🙂
    Even with Criterion I wouldn't spend over 20.00 for a blind buy – Im very cautious about spending money on movies that have a 50% shot on being on the shelf. I tend to stream if its available or rent from ClassicFlix dot com if they have the film in their library.

    Also, speaking of VHS, because Im a HUGE Godzilla fan I went to tower records in the late 1980s and spend 40.00 for the VHS of The Terror of Mechagodzilla 😀 One of my first VHS tapes in my collection !

    Furthermore, as you get older, you get tighter with your money as retirement/fixed income and health issues look you straight in the eye every single day.

    Though some seem to easily find the cash to watch new release films multiple times in premium format theaters. 😉

    Though I suppose if you're using something like A-List it might lessen the blow.

    First off, I never said I was getting tighter with my monies as I know one person that will say I still spend too much of my disposable income on movies.

    Secondly, I am an A-Lister.

    THE VICTORS and LORD JIM as well.

    Same here never seen any of these, but no doubt will pick these up.

  21. Presidents Lady is a really good film.
    My only fear is the sound processing.
    I just got the TT My Cousin Rachel.
    I have two older transfers off cable and the sound is excellent.
    Here, Fox has severely noise gated the track and it sounds terrioble and artificial. I would hate to see this Happen to Lady.

  22. Thomas T

    And the complete Roadshow version of MacKenna's Gold!

    At this point I'd be very happy with the general release version, if Sony do their usual bang-up job…plus the usual Sony suspects: Lord Jim & Barabbas.

  23. OliverK

    Ok, I seem to be missing something here, what does A-lister mean in this context?

    A program at AMC Theaters where you get a certain amount of movie tickets – including premium showings – per month for a monthly subscription price.

    Thanks, google does not always come to the rescue on matters like these. I think a movie flatrate would be something I'd like to use if I was living in a city where they also offer this for cinemas specializing in repertory screenings, that would be cool!

  25. We got the answer of what the Gregory Peck films are that were in the TT newsletter a while back. I'm still hoping for The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit at some point. Nice line-up. Hopefully my financial woes will cease soon and I could start buying discs again. I'm way behind on Twilight Time and Criterion releases this year.

    I wonder if Twilight Time did not find the transfers of The Magus and Deadfall acceptable. Both have been released in Europe.

  27. OliverK

    Ok, I seem to be missing something here, what does A-lister mean in this context?

    For $19.95 per month, I can watch three movies a week without any restrictions like IMAX, Dolby Cinema and Dolby Atmos. About 12-13 movies per month for $19.95 only at AMC theaters.

    That's a pretty sweet deal if you can watch that many movies a month plus you can watch all the special formats that usually have pretty hefty surcharges.

  29. The President's Lady is a "was" on my 20 most wanted list now. Thank you, TT! Day one purchase for me. My top 20 include Barabbas, Pepe, Raintree County and Lord Jim, and good to hear other folks agree. I'd add Scaramouche, Ivanhoe, Prince of Players, Land of the Pharaohs and my dearly beloved Story of Ruth. Lady is a wonderful surprise!

    I don't have a top 20 most wanted list. It's a top 120 list! All your top 20 are on my list too.

  31. Robin9

    I don't have a top 20 most wanted list. It's a top 120 list! All your top 20 are on my list too.

    I think I'll change mine to a top 120, too. Perhaps a top 420 would be better with beloved peplums, westerns and rare noirs in abundance.

  32. 10 North Frederick is a 20th Century Fox Cinemascope Picture so I’ll be getting that. And I worked on The Chairman and haven’t seen a decent print of it in decades! A fun movie to work on and rather a good one. J Lee Thompson was an amazing Director. The script girl told me one day how he’d been talking about a problem he foresaw on a particular shot. Took her a couple of hours before she realised he was talking about his next movie and was already working out his shots, halfway through shooting The Chairman. Lovely man Lee.

  33. Ed Lachmann

    wouldn’t it be nice to get some really great restorations of Steve Reeve peplums like Last Days of Pompeii, Giant of Marathon, Romulus and Remus, Hercules Unchained, Etc. And get our Fox Cinemascope peplums like Esther and the King, The Story of Ruth, and any others they can find.

    Both Ivanhoe and Land of the Pharaohs have had superb HD transmissions on BBC TV in the UK. Love both. Ivanhoe has the shit of Elizabeth Taylor at a window that made everyone gasp, so beautiful did she look.
    How many more times are we going to have to beg for Raintree County to get the Blu Ray restoration it deserves?

    Too bad it's not 4.0 or 5.1. Hopefully the 2.0 is stereo surround.
