  1. Wow, The Last Harrah! This John Ford completist is very happy. Also in for The Bravados since I hadn't yet picked up the German Blu-ray and I'm fairly confident that Twilight Time will give us the original 4.0 audio.

  2. Looking forward to The Other Side of Midnight. I know it isnt for everyone but Ive been begging for it for a while now, its a must own for me!

    This is one I cant wait to hear Julie Kirgo’s thoughts in the booklet and who knows a commentary if it gets that treatment. Again it may be one I can see many just think it garbage or can enjoy it for the soapy crazy melodrama that it is.

  3. I'll buy The Other Side Of Midnight too. I saw it when it was new and enjoyed the film without taking it at all seriously. Seeing it again will be fun. I'll also buy The Bravados and The Last Hurrah. The DVD of The Bravados looks a bit tired. I hope the Fox magicians have performed a miracle because this is a Leon Shamroy movie.

    Same here! I decided not to buy the German BD because I was waiting on TT have a proper release of it.:thumbsup:

  5. The Last Hurrah has been one of my most requested titles to TT- thank you, Nick and Brian! It's a gem of a film with a terrific cast and won't disappoint anyone who buys this.

    Very happy this Saturday morning

    I think it's one of Ford's most underrated films.

  7. No love for a John Boorman film starring Samuel Jackson and Juliette Binoche? Boorman was nominated as Best Director at the Berlin Film Festival; must count for something.
    I saw both Hurrah and Bravados when they came out. I last saw them some 40 years ago in 35mm prints. Hurrah looked stunning; Bravados looked magenta. I am certainly looking forward to watching these again.

    I'm sure it's a wonderful film, but I'm just plain more interested in pre 1980 catalog titles.

  9. THE LAST HURRAH is the one of this bunch I definitely plan to acquire. Possibly BRAVADOS. I know nothing about IN MY COUNTRY. I have read only negative reviews regarding THE OTHER SIDE OF MIDNIGHT and have no interest in it. I do, however, own the Michel Legrand score, which is lovely indeed.

    I saw it when it was briefly released in 2004. The fact that I can't remember a single thing about it shows how impressed I was. 🙂

  11. This is where I get royally flamed (again).
    I like it when we get a fox scope film never released in any format (No Down Payment) but lately we are getting stuff I just don’t need and will not by again (blue Denim, Revolt of Mamie Stover, hilda crane) and now the unneeded The bravados.
    I would kill for first releases like Best Things in life are Free, A cedrtqain Smile, The Racers, Prince of Players, View from Pompeys Head.

    Blue Denim and Hilda Crane were only released by Fox on MOD DVD (nothing against MOD DVDs, my shelves are crammed with them) but Hilda Crane wasn't even anamorphic! Revolt Of Mamie Stover has never received a U.S. release (just Spain and France) so blu ray editions are welcome. Hold on to your horses, Joe because I suspect TT blu rays of The Hunters, A High Wind In Jamaica and D Day The Sixth Of June will soon becoming from TT soon (only because like The Bravados they got a blu ray release in Germany) and you probably won't be pleased with that either.

    Well, Thomas, you made my day with this post. I was completely unaware that A HIGH WIND IN JAMAICA had been released on Blu-ray anywhere, and I have been campaigning for it since thew DVD came out. Ordering within minutes from Amazon.de.

    Well, now that you've bought it, for sure TT will put it out on blu ray! Isn't that way it always happens? 🙂 The Long Hot Summer had been available on blu ray from Germany for some time but my gut instincts told me to wait because TT would do a blu ray ….. eventually.

    So in other words, Twilight Time has to check with you before selecting titles?

    He expressed his opinion and disappointment with some of Twilight Times recent releases based on his collection and purchase habits. I found nothing wrong with that. I don't hold the same view, but it led to some good info from other members.

  18. I'm not sure I have ever seen The Best Things in Life Are Free in widescreen. Was there a widescreen laserdisc? Did AMC ever show it in widescreen the way they did Peyton Place, April Love, Star! and others back when they actually showed classics commercial free? I know it's never shown on Fox Movies in widescreen, and my DVD-R isn't widescreen either. Is there a widescreen master for this somewhere?

    Get a break this time- just The Bravdos for me this time.
    Regards,

    I thought the German Explosive Media release of The Bravados had rather harsh contrast with its share of crushed blacks, so I am curious how the TT disc will be.

  20. Whoops – some apologies in order.
    Based on comments here, I wne tback to my collection and realized I made some mistakes.
    Both my discs of Hilda Crane and Revolt of Mamie Stover were leeterbo from brodcasts from Fox movie channel.
    So those are new to dvd courtesy of Twilight Time. Mea culpa.

    Riding tall for the first time on hi-def Blu-ray: Star Gregory Peck and director Henry King

    team for the fifth of their six collaborations, a tough-as-nails revenge Western filmed on brooding Mexican locations and co-starring Joan Collins, Stephen Boyd, and Albert Salmi in one of two performances that brought him 1958’s National Board of Review Best Supporting Actor Award.

    “Executed intelligently in fine, brooding style against eye-filling, authentic backgrounds, so that its basically familiar ingredients glisten with professional polish.” – A.H. Weiler, The New York Times

    “An excellent revenge tale…Leon Shamroy’s cinematography (in CinemaScope) is striking and effective…a film ripe for rediscovery.”

    – Stuart Galbraith IV, DVDTalk.com

    Eight years after their classic Western collaboration on The Gunfighter (1950), director Henry King and star Gregory Peck reunite for The Bravados(1958), a chilling tale of obsession and revenge. Peck plays a rancher bent on avenging the rape and murder of his young wife; when the alleged perpetrators escape the hangman, he takes off after them with a nervous and inexperienced posse. Also starring Joan Collins, Stephen Boyd, Albert Salmi, Henry Silva, and Lee Van Cleef, and highlighted by stunning widescreen cinematography courtesy of the brilliant Leon Shamroy (Leave Her to Heaven, Cleopatra).

    The director of Deliveranceand The Emerald Forestfocuses his camera and storytelling craft

    on South Africa’s tormented post-apartheid process of healing and reconciliation,

    an important though little-seen film now debuting on hi-def Blu-ray. “Boorman treats this

    moving, important subject with restraint, tact, and candid views of horrors

    suffered by the nation” (David Sterritt, The Christian Science Monitor).

    In my country

    Once they are gone – they are gone!

    RELEASE DATE: TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2018

    “Directed by the usually good, sometimes great, unequivocally talented John Boorman…In My Countryis a complex, challenging, almost radical film, and it succeeds…as an expression of what it means to be fellow humans.”

    – Nathan Lee, New York Sun

    “The transitional period in South Africa is a model for an enlightened and humane reconciliation with past evils. In My Countryshows the process at work and argues in its favor, and I…approve of it just on that basis.”

    – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

    Directed by the one and only John Boorman (Hope and Glory), In MyCountry(2004) focuses on the burgeoning relationship between an Afrikaner poet (Juliette Binoche) and an African American journalist (Samuel L. Jackson) as both cover the excruciating South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission hearings in Cape Town. Their personal story is interwoven with tales of apartheid’s victims and perpetrators, and South Africa’s valiant attempts to come to terms with its ruinous past.

    Finally on hi-def Blu-ray: Spencer Tracy and director John Ford run a political campaign to remember, and the “top-notch veteran cast makes the film sparkle” (Leonard Maltin’s Classic Movie Guide). One of 1958’s 10-Best Films/Best Actor/Best Director – National Board of Review Awards.

    THE LAST HURRAH

    Limited Edition BLU-RAYRelease

    Only 3,000 units available athttp://www.twilighttimemovies.com& http://www.screenarchives.com

    Once they are gone – they are gone!

    RELEASE DATE: TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2018

    “Ford superbly at ease on his Irish-American home ground in an elegiac account of the last, doomed campaign of a New England political boss…Outstanding camerawork by Charles Lawton, and a rich gallery of performances.” – Tom Milne, Time Out London

    “Robustly amusing and deeply touching…Mr. Tracy is at his best in the leading role.” – Bosley Crowther, The New York Times

    The legendary John Ford directs screenwriter Frank S. Nugent’s adaptation of Edwin O’Connor’s novel, the barn-burning political film/character study, The Last Hurrah(1958). The singular Spencer Tracy stars as an old-school Irish-American pol, mayor of “a New England City” that just might be Boston; as he faces a potentially rough fifth campaign, he is observed by his journalist nephew (Jeffrey Hunter), fighting charges of graft and abuse of power even as he is assisted and/or opposed by a gallery of colorful characters. The extraordinary supporting cast includes Pat O’Brien, Basil Rathbone, Donald Crisp, James Gleason, Ricardo Cortez, et al; the film was gloriously shot by Charles Lawton, Jr. (The Lady from Shanghai).

    From Sidney Sheldon’s notorious bestseller, supported by a lush Michel Legrand score

    and dressed in Irene Sharaff’s glamorous Oscar®-nominated costume designs,

    this globetrotting, old-style romantic melodrama with R-rated trappings that have made it a

    “guilty-pleasure” staple in the intervening decades now spreads its wings in gorgeous 1080p hi-def!

    The Other Side

    “Gloriously restores the era of Now, Voyager…the movie equivalent of a good long bad read.” Time Out London

    “Quite fabulous…spectacular style details.” – Maegan Tintari, lovemaegan.com

    Directed by Charles Jarrott (Anne of the Thousand Days), The Other Side of Midnight(1977) is a spectacularly epic adaptation of Sidney Sheldon’s melodrama focusing on the rise of a French shopgirl, Noelle (the great Marie-France Pisier). After a torrid World War II-era love affair with an American pilot, Larry (John Beck), leaves her abandoned and pregnant, Noelle vows revenge – which includes becoming a fashion model, an international movie star, and the mistress of a staggeringly wealthy Greek tycoon (Raf Vallone). Susan Sarandon co-stars as Larry’s perky post-war wife, and Clu Gulager is thankfully around, too. Appropriately fabulous score by Michel Legrand, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.
