UNIVERSALly ignored-the 80s rewind edition

3 Stars

It finally seems that the up to now ignored Universal library of 70s-90s films are getting some respect with no fewer than 5 boutique labels striking up licensing deals. Below is a list of 70s films either never released on video in any form, ONLY REACHED VHS or never made it to Bluray. The 5 boutique companies are Arrow; Criterion; Kino; Shout! and Twilight Time. Also, Universal have also been releasing some catalog films on Blu recently. Thought it would be helpful to see whats available and fun to think which company MAY bring them out. Recently announced (excitedly) were I WANNA HOLD YOUR HAND (Criterion) and WILLIE DYNAMITE(Arrow). Have fun NOV (Never on Video) VHS (only) NOB(Never on Blu) Boldfaced (important films)

  2. I think Universal is probably the most represented studio for catalog titles at the moment. Some of the films on your list they may not have rights to any longer, some may have rights issues, others may reqiure extensive restorations and some may not have enough commercial appeal to even bother.

    Buck Rogers In The 25th Century (1979) has been available (as an import) since October 2016. This includes both versions of the pilot movie and the entire series.
    Just that little annoying fact of the theatrical cut only available in SD.

    I've seen about 40 films on that list, many of them when they came out and I only own a handful. Most of these were not very good–then or now. Universal devoted most of its resources in the 1960s to television, including many TV movies, and so many of their theatrical movies from the time are glossy fluff that was designed to go straight to TV within a year or so of theatrical release. While filmmakers were challenging the Production Code right and left, Universal's output in that decade was the safest and weakest of all the major studios. While Warner Bros. was giving us COOL HAND LUKE, BONNIE AND CLYDE, BULLITT and THE WILD BUNCH; Fox was giving us THE LONGEST DAY, THE SAND PEBBLES, PLANET OF THE APES and BUTCH CASSIDY; Paramount was giving us THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE, SEVEN DAYS IN MAY, EL DORADO, and TRUE GRIT; Columbia was giving us LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS, DR. STRANGELOVE, THE PROFESSIONALS, IN COLD BLOOD, and EASY RIDER; and United Artists was giving us WEST SIDE STORY, THE GREAT ESCAPE, the James Bond films, the Sergio Leone trilogy, IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT and MIDNIGHT COWBOY, Universal was giving us Don Knotts comedies, God help us.

    If you're talking about Universal's 1960s output, I'd rather see some of their TV movies get released, along with box sets of their TV series, e.g. "The Outsider" and "Name of the Game."

  7. Still waiting for the only movie I still have on VHS. UFOria with Cindy Williams & Fred Ward. Completed in 1980 but sat on the shelf until Universal released in 1985. A funny and underrated film that has not been released on dvd.

    There are also so many 60's films to add to that list.

    1979
    The Seduction of Joe Tynan (NOB)

    Assuming NOV means never on video, I have DVDs of Puzzle Of A Downfall Child from France and Moment By Moment from Germany. Both are very good transfers. I have a blu ray of The Seduction Of Joe Tynan from France. A blu ray of Swashbuckler is available from Germany but I don't own it.

  13. Ken Koc

    I did forget to omit those already released title. BOOM! Is it really going to be released on Blu?

    Kino has confirmed that it does have one Elizabeth Taylor title on tap via its deal with Universal. Speculation is that it is either Boom or Secret Ceremony. I'm hoping it is Secret Ceremony since it's the better movie.

    Great list, Thomas. One erratum however. Hollywood Story has been released on DVD by TCM.

    Assuming NOV means never on video, I have DVDs of Puzzle Of A Downfall Child from France and Moment By Moment from Germany. Both are very good transfers. I have a blu ray of The Seduction Of Joe Tynan from France. A blu ray of Swashbuckler is available from Germany but I don't own it.

    It was a Universal film when first released in 1968. Why do you believe it is now with Paramount?

    He's confusing Universal's The Hell With Heroes (1968) with Rod Taylor with Paramount's Hell Is For Heroes (1962) with Steve McQueen.

  17. Timothy Bodzioney

    I'm sorry – I confused it with the Don Siegel movie.

    I've had that happen to me here when I urged Universal to release Albert Zugsmith's Girl in the Kremlin (1958) (Thanks for including that In your own list, btw, Thomas!). A fellow board member asked if I didn't mean 1974's Girl from Petrovka. 🙂

    I think Universal is probably the most represented studio for catalog titles at the moment. Some of the films on your list they may not have rights to any longer, some may have rights issues, others may reqiure extensive restorations and some may not have enough commercial appeal to even bother.

    Lack of commercial appeal as a disc doesn't always mean they won't at least try to gauge interest in some way. Moment by Moment had an OAR HD master that aired on Universal HD in the 2000s. So I gave it a fair shot. Holy mother of pearl, what a clunker. Even in a remastered transfer, I found the film to be unwatchable — I don't think I made it through the first half-hour — and it made The Incredible Shrinking Woman (already on Blu by Shout!) look like a classic by comparison. This is an example of something I would be surprised to see get released. It doesn't even have any camp appeal. It just sits there on the screen aimlessly scrambling to find reasons for us to care about the two self-absorbed lead characters.

    Boom! at least earned the approval of John Waters.

    Diary of a Mad Housewife also has a discrepancy in the running time between the theatrical release and the version released by MCA Home Video in the 1980s. Someone tried to put together a stop-gap reconstruction on YouTube years ago. Hopefully an eventual Blu-ray will restore the uncut version.

    FM* must still be in the clutches of the Music Rights Monster. Didn't that have music replaced in every medium it was released in?

    *Wrongly compared to the TV show WKRP in Cincinnati since they both premiered in 1978; it got a TV version in the late 1980s that flopped.

    Frankly, I'm not much interested in the Universal product of 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. Ken Koc has listed titles from the 1960s. Below are some titles that I want from the 1950s that have not (and I stand to be corrected) legitimately seen the light of day on laser disc, DVD or blu ray.
