With Seven Brides’ imminent blu ray release, it would have made a nice companion release to High Society! But instead we get Two Weeks in Another Town – a “failed” “big” MGM film …plus many strange blu ray releases like Leatherface, Black Scorpion & Batman & Mr Freeze.
Somebody Up There Likes Me a major film success that launched Paul Newman into the elite top – has been overlooked for blu ray with instead, a DVD release finally as a single option for the first time. Not a better option than the Drowning Pool? – neither a critical nor commercial success.
The selection process at Warner Archive is indeed strange (The Rounders on blu ray, why?). But most HTF members will howl me down as being out of touch which I guess I am – the big quality “middle tier” films of the 40’s & 50’s are largely our of favour it seems so with little prospective sales value are unlikely to ever see a blu ray clean up.
While the City Sleeps – a little “sleeper” film is another strange option – but the blu ray transfer is terrific for a “B” film.
Open the Archive Warner a little more often to Blu Ray.
