Its with great sadness that we heard about the passing of Nick Redman today.  He was a great friend not only to Home Theater Forum, but to music and movie fans everywhere.  Our thoughts and prayers go to his wife Julie and all of the Twilight Time family.  Here is a link to his obituary in Variety.

It is devastating. It knocked the wind out of me.

Those who just thought Nick was just one of the partners of Twilight Time releases, please dig out there. Without Nick I cant imagine how many film scores would be lost or left to detoriate in the vaults.

My heart is with Julie Kirgo and his family.

What terribly sad news. Film fans everywhere are in Mr. Redman’s debt and I feel like we have all lost a dear friend. I enjoyed getting to know him both here on the HTF and on Facebook, and I’ll miss his wit, humour and kindness very much. My heart goes out to Julie, his daughter, and his family and friends.

I’m very saddened hearing this news. Over the last several years since the early days of Twilight Time we had many good conversations. He will be missed by many and I send condolences to Julie, his family and friends.

My condolences to his family.

Like many here, I never met the man in person, but from years of reading his writings here and elsewhere, and from listening to his commentaries, I felt like I knew him.

His unique voice, insights and passion will be missed. He leaves behind an incredible legacy.

My deepest condolences to Julie Kirgo and to Nick Redman’s Family.
It was Nick and his company who got me into collecting classic cinema. Both he and Julie accepted me as a friend on FB and it was such a privilege being able to talk directly with them about our love for classic movies.

Godspeed Nick Redman.

I'm so sorry to hear this. My condolences to his family and Julie. His writing on film, numerous commentaries, directing of movie extras, and love of film will be greatly missed. Once I really started collecting BluRays, TT was one of my favorite labels and the many overlooked films that they released that never would've seen a home video release.

A great, great loss to the industry, to his family, and to those of us at HTF who have either met him in person on several occasions or felt as though they knew him from internet interactions and listening to his masterful commentaries on a host of film discs.

A sad day and an even sadder loss for us all. R.I.P.
