I came across this article on VCI’s website. It’s getting a 4K scan and it sounds like this could be a great release. It is VCI, and their other releases haven’t gotten rave reviews but you never know ! And I was happy with their Human Monster Blu-ray !

Sounds promising. If it's finished correctly, without over-processing, could be a winner.

I saw a 35mm print of Rain in the '70s and was amazed at the razor sharp cinematography and the deep, deep blacks. Full of Milestone's touches. Crawford's Sadie is too hard for my liking; Swanson and Hayworth are closer to the good-time gal who is so attractive to men.

This must been what Cinepost was talking about a while back when they released a teaser of Rain.

The video clip of Rain posted above uses the reissue title card!

This is exciting news! I'm a big fan of Maugham in general and I'll be looking forward to this.

This is a terrifying and amazing movie! This is thrilling news. Joan Crawford is at her most beautiful and probably her best acting job ever.

Curious as to whether there's any further news on this. I don't want to sell my DVD copy until I
know I can replace it with an even better Blu-Ray. And while on the subject, I also wonder about
the Milestone release of FILIBUS (1915). As far as I can tell, the current price for this is $295! Does
anyone know if this will be priced for collectors at a more reasonable price?
