Delmar Daves' 1954 epic heads to Blu-ray's arena in March.

In their latest press release, Twilight Time has revealed 'Demetrius and the Gladiators' is coming to Blu-ray on March 13.

The thrilling sequel to 'The Robe' (1953), 'Demetrius and the Gladiators' (1954) follows the further adventures of the Christian slave Demetrius (Victor Mature), sentenced to servitude as a gladiator in the Roman arena. There, his faith is tested in to-the-death combat and by the wiles of the seductive Messalina (Susan Hayward)—all under the obsessive eye of the mad Emperor Caligula (Jay Robinson). Director Delmer Daves brings epic sweep to the tale, supported by the bravura score of Franz Waxman (available here as an isolated track).

The Blu-ray will be limited to 3000 copies and will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 4.0 soundtrack, and supplements include an isolated score track and liner notes by Julie Kirgo.

I really, really, really wanna get The Big Heat.

Mark C.
04-06-2012, 03:42 PM
That BIG HEAT cover is literally the one of the best I've seen in a while. Its probably the only one out of the batch I would get, I already bought SWAMP WATER which I though had a stellar cast.

Andrew Monroe
04-06-2012, 04:27 PM
Oh yeah, that BIG HEAT cover is easily the most striking film noir cover I've seen. I'll be getting that for sure. That film must sell pretty well, it had a stand-alone release, then was part of a set, and now a BD. Wish some more of Lang's American films would hit BD - like WOMAN IN THE WINDOW, MINISTRY OF FEAR, MAN HUNT, WHILE THE CITY SLEEPS, and THE BLUE GARDENIA.

I actually like it. I think Nicholson is really good in it. But I still don't know whether I will pick it up. That's one title I feel pretty sure will see a region B release.

First review I've seen for Journey To The Center Of The Eart is here (http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Jules-Vernes-Journey-to-the-Center-of-the-Earth-Blu-ray/39539/#Review).

Ian Jane

My copy of The Big Heat shipped today! :up:

Blu-ray.com got a review (http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/The-Big-Heat-Blu-ray/39540/#Review) up the other day, and I'm pretty fuggin' geeked out over this.

And I might just have to get COVER GIRL. I wasn't a fan of musicals for a long time but over the last 5 years or so I've gotten very fond of them. I scored quite a few from the 3 dollar bin at Big Lots and that and TCM gave me a new appreciation for them. COVER GIRL isn't anything groundbreaking but it's fun and Rita looks absolutely gorgeous in it. Oh, and Eve Arden is typically great as the wiseass friend.

Ian Jane
05-31-2012, 02:42 PM
I've never seen it. Great cover art though.

Those covers are stinkers.
I have zero interest in these films anyway.

I'd have preferred they use the NOTLD 90 one sheet...

They should have gone with the original instead.:down:

Alex K.
09-04-2012, 03:51 PM
Meh. I don't hate the new cover but I don't like it either. Would be curious if it has any new extras.

Shawn Francis
09-04-2012, 04:07 PM
Extras for NIGHT/DEAD:

- Isolated Score Track
- Audio Commentary with Filmmaker Tom Savini
- Original Theatrical Trailer

The doc was not ported over.

Alex K.
09-04-2012, 05:07 PM
Too bad. The doc had some of the cut gore footage. Not a lot was cut: 3 headshots and an extra few seconds of Barbara clubbing the zombie in the farmhouse with that poker.

Still should've been included.

Reminder that NOTLD and ENEMY MINE are now up for pre-order.

Richard--W
09-14-2012, 08:23 PM
What, no Peckinpah?
Where's the short-lived TV series THE WESTERNER (1960) ?
Where's the TV special NOON WINE (1967) ?
Where's the documentary PASSION AND THE POETRY (2009) ?

In view of Nick Redman's past involvement with Peckinpah releases you'd think he'd allocate a little attention for the director on his own label.

Shawn Francis
09-15-2012, 02:34 PM
Anyone who wants NOTLD better get it now, it's predicted to sell out quicker than FRIGHT NIGHT did.

Ian Jane
09-16-2012, 01:48 PM
Ordered my copy the other day.

Apronikoff

Thanks. I was on the fence about this one (due to the price), but went ahead and pulled the trigger...

Shawn Francis
09-16-2012, 03:32 PM
TT states they have several more genre titles set for 2013, one of them is Carpenter's CHRISTINE (1983) set for next March. I asked them recently, and several people have, too, about the possibility of THE BLOB (1988) coming out through them, and they never seem to reply to my, or anyone else's, query. My "precognitive intestinal tract" seems to say it MAY be on the list for next year.

A reply TT made in the NOTLD thread on their FB page: "Fright Night took 5 weeks to sell out from 1st day of pre-order: at its current rate of sale, NOTLD won't be around that long...a combination of it being a popular title and increased awareness of TT in 2012..."

Shawn Francis
09-16-2012, 03:37 PM
Just guessing but I'm sure TT will port over the commentary from the CHRISTINE DVD, not sure about the deleted scenes or the featurettes. Oh, and MYSTERIOUS ISLAND and JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH went out of print a couple of months ago.

Ian Jane
09-20-2012, 10:59 AM
Home Theater Forum just posted this interesting interview (http://www.hometheaterforum.com/t/317186/interview-with-twilight-time-nick-redman-on-who-they-are-their-business-model-and-more) with Nick Redman of Twilight Time in which they explain their business model, why they do things the way they do and a lot more.

Ian Jane
09-21-2012, 11:18 AM
From Twilight Time's Facebook page:

"NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1990) has fewer than 500 copies remaining in stock, and Screen Archives has placed a 2-copy per person limit so that as many fans of the film as possible have a chance to get one before they disappear..."

Richard--W
09-21-2012, 11:37 AM
Is NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD a new HD scan for Blu-ray?

It really is inconvenient, releasing a $30 blu-ray in between paydays.

Damn that Nick Redman.

Ian Jane
09-21-2012, 11:59 AM
I don't know of any other HD version of NOTLD90, so I'd imagine it is. Previous Twilight Time releases have looked really nice, no reason to assume this won't as well.

Richard--W
09-21-2012, 12:19 PM
Yeah, Twilight Time does fine work. I've bought a few. They're pricey or I'd buy more.

I called up and bought NOTLD90 after being reassured they wouldn't charge me until about October 5 when it ships.

The 1990 doesn't have the impact of the original -- nothing does -- but of all the remakes, imitations and spin-offs it's the only version that stands on it's own (apart from Romero's efforts, that is). I like how the story veers into a new direction in the third act. The changes make sense. Tom Savini should have been offered a directing career in genre movies after this because he does a first-rate job.

Ian Jane
09-21-2012, 12:28 PM
Agreed. I don't like it more than the original but on its own terms, it's a good movie.

Ian Jane
09-24-2012, 11:18 AM
So the NOTLD 90 Blu-ray sold out on pre-orders Saturday afternoon.

Horace Cordier

Derrick King

I still can't believe that the idiots at Sony are passing on releasing a Stephen King based/John Carpenter directed movie. I know Sony has been having money problems, maybe they should just sell their fucking back catalog to a company that would exploited it properly.

Anyway, someone on the blu-ray.com forums said that TT confirmed to him that they will be releasing THE BLOB (1988) next year.

Andrew Monroe

That's some welcome news, thanks! There's one I didn't really expect to see get the TLC treatment. THE FURY and MAJOR DUNDEE are pretty swell too, was actually planning to rewatch the latter soon, I'll hold off now. And SONG OF BERNADETTE is a favorite of mine too, it made a big impression on me first time I saw it years ago.

Some more announcements popped up at the Twilight Time FB page:

PHILADELPHIA (1993) BLU-RAY - May 14th
LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN (1945) BLU-RAY - May 14th

HARD TIMES (1975) BLU-RAY - June 11th
THE DRIVER (1978) BLU-RAY - June 11th
THE ONLY GAME IN TOWN (1970) - June 11th

Andrew Monroe
02-01-2013, 03:07 PM
Wow! Thanks for the news, Ian. I'll get HARD TIMES, THE DRIVER, and LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN for sure. LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN is a fantastic color noir with Gene Tierney as an ice cold sociopath. Unforgettable scene where she is in a boat...I'll leave it at that.

Richard--W
02-01-2013, 05:43 PM
I haven't bought as many releases from Twilight Time as I'd like because of the high pricing. I want LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN, but I may have to pass on it. I'll definitely get the two Walter Hill films, however, because I love his work and these are my two favorite Hill films of the 1970s.

Horace Cordier
02-01-2013, 08:11 PM
Twilight Time are killing me. I need CHRISTINE and THE FURY. HARD TIMES is one of Bronson's finest films with a crappy USA full screen DVD so that's a must. I've never seen THE DRIVER so I'll want that one too and finally Andrew has just pimped HEAVEN so well that I want that too!

Andrew Monroe
02-02-2013, 01:00 PM
I want to say a lot more about HEAVEN, Horace, but it'd be spoilerific. Tierney is excellent in the film though, she was nominated for an Oscar for it. I'll quote a couple great lines:
"There's nothing wrong with Ellen (Tierney). It's just that she just loves too much." And a pregnant Tierney looking at herself in the mirror,"Look at me. I hate the little beast. I wish it would die."

And.... Christine sold out. In about 6 hours or so. A new record for them I think?

Mark Tolch
02-16-2013, 12:21 PM
The sad thing is that it's probably the number of FRIGHT NIGHT blus that were sold upwards of 150 bucks a piece that motivated the buying spree. Limited edition, but you can buy multiple copies. Huh.

Andrew Monroe
02-16-2013, 01:01 PM
I got my order in last night for both, thanks to Damin for the heads-up.

If I wanted to pick up LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN, what kind of hoops would I have to jump through? I find this all very confusing.

Derrick King
02-17-2013, 11:33 PM
I'd expect that you'd have no trouble ordering LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN, the only Twilight Time titles that have gone quickly are the horror (FRIGHT NIGHT - 5 weeks, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD - 8 days, & CHRISTINE - 7 or 8 hours).

Ian Jane
02-18-2013, 10:09 AM
Yeah, the horror stuff seems to very quickly outsell the non-horror stuff, which is interesting. You'd think some of the more mainstream titles would sell out faster as there's a bigger audience for them. Horror fans are maybe more impulsive or dedicated or quicker to part with their money I guess. All of the above?

Andrew Monroe
02-18-2013, 10:16 AM
I'm still shocked that Lang's THE BIG HEAT has yet to sell out. I very much doubt that LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN will.

Richard--W
02-19-2013, 02:24 PM
Twilight Time says cancellations of CHRISTINE will go up for sale March 8. One per customer.

Also some copies were apparently withheld in anticipation of getting Keith Gordon to sign them, which has been done and there is kind of special offer on those.

Those who missed it, save your coin and try again.

Ian Jane
02-19-2013, 04:30 PM

"Friday, March 15th - we are very proud to announce MAJOR DUNDEE (our first 2-disc set) will be available for pre-order at 4 pm EST. (Disc 2 will present on Blu-ray the original theatrical cut, never before released on a digital format. It was last issued on laserdisc in the mid-nineties.)"

You think this will sell out? I'm undecided on this one, not one of my favorite Peckinpah's but I'd consider it at some point. I'd rather not feel like I have to grab it immediately.

Ian Jane
03-06-2013, 01:14 PM
I don't think it will sell out as quickly as Christine did, but yeah, I don't think it'll be around too long.

Nice I didn't knew about Body Double. Hope it won't sold out too fast as I won't be at home and without internet access for all the month of august as usual (not that I'm that scare since it's not one for the horror troll, so no scalpers for it).

I take a note one my desk to not forget.

edit: The Disapearance sound interesting too...

Ian Jane

FB Update!

Our release of Walter Hill's THE DRIVER (1978) now has a new street date--July 23rd. This is to take advantage of a brand new master / DCP currently in the process of being created at Fox. The slight delay will be well worth the wait.

In other news, Sony's technical services and mastering department have informed us that the stunning new transfer of Brian De Palma's BODY DOUBLE (1984) has been completed, and has been personally supervised by veteran cinematographer Stephen H. Burum. However, Mr Burum has apparently revisited the color timing of certain scenes, so sections of the film may look different to previous homme-video incarnations. We don't have any more details and have not yet seen the finished product, but as we promised you after NOTLD90, if we got word that changes had been made to a film's look, we would pass it along. We will remind fans again of this before pre-orders go up.

Revised schedule is as follows:

PHILADELPHIA (1993) BLU-RAY - May 14th
LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN (1945) BLU-RAY - May 14th
HARD TIMES (1975) BLU-RAY - June 11th
THE ONLY GAME IN TOWN (1970) BLU-RAY - June 11th
SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE (1993) BLU-RAY - July 9th
LOVE IS A MANY-SPLENDORED THING (1955) BLU-RAY - July 9th
THE DRIVER (1978) BLU-RAY - July 23rd
BODY DOUBLE (1984) BLU-RAY - Aug 13th
SEXY BEAST (2000) BLU-RAY - Aug 13th
THE DISAPPEARANCE (1977) BLU-RAY - Aug 13th

As long as it is supervised by the DP who shoot a film that isn't a problem for me. He is the one who knows how the film was supposed to look like. Contrary to the NOTLD remaster he didn't phone is recommandations who were or weren't followed, he was the one doing it.

Andrew, please post your thoughts on the disc once you get it. I've never seen the movie and it's steep for a blind buy.

Andrew Monroe
05-16-2013, 12:07 PM
Will do. I love the film, I'm skeptical of "color noirs" but this one really is. Gene Tierney is just friggin' amazing in this (she was nominated for an Oscar). It's so completely different from any other role she did. The film contains one of the most shocking scenes of anything from the era - and it's still one that'll give you pause today.

I will certainly post my thoughts on p/q but I recommend looking around for more expert input as far as that goes.

Ian Jane
05-16-2013, 12:09 PM
Thanks Andrew. There's a review at Blu-ray.com that confirms the A/V is good.

Andrew Monroe

Watched LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN over the weekend. I thought the TT blu looked simply stunning. Damn, it will really blow you away. The photography by Leon Shamroy is amazing, it's like a painting in almost every scene. And the film just gets better every time I see it.

I love this New Yorker quote on the back cover:

"Technicolor reached its astounding apogee in the lips of Gene Tierney, as red as a witch's apple. Each frame of her appears to be hand-tinted, as if she had ordered it."

The BD carries over the Richard Schickel/Darryl Hickman commentary from the old Fox dvd and has an isolated score track too.

Derrick King

Just in case anyone is thinking about ordering TT's THE FURY Blu-ray, don't, as it looks like Arrow is releasing THE FURY (http://forum.blu-ray.com/showpost.php?p=7584499&postcount=284)

Andrew Monroe
06-05-2013, 02:29 PM
It's an outstanding gothic horror film, Horace. Great twist in it too, so hopefully you haven't read too much about that part. It's one of that small group of films that do justice to an equally fine source novel (in this case, by Thomas Tryon - well worth tracking down as well). Really unique setting and a fine cast too. I have such vivid memories of watching this on late night tv back in the 70s. There's some genuinely macabre moments that will stick with you. The thing is, the dvd is great looking so I'm perfectly satisifed with it.

Richard--W

Derrick King

I wanted to get it, but, for me, it wasn't a pay Twilight Time prices for it, release. Maybe it'll get a European release.

Richard--W
06-21-2013, 05:23 PM
But don't European releases cost a little more once the currency is converted and the shipping is added? I'd buy more Twilight Time blu-rays if it weren't for the high prices. I'm delighted with the quality of those I bought -- The Big Heat, Picnic, Major Dundee, Hard Times and a few others. Wish I could have grabbed a couple of titles -- like Mysterious Island -- before they sold out. Starting in October I plan to buy one TT blu per month until I get those I want.


I didn't want Savini's Night of the Living Dead when it was reported that there were problems with the transfer and the so-called "approved" transfer turned out to be a canard. So I called up to cancel it just as it was being shipped. Later a friend showed me his and it was obviously all wrong. He sent it back for a refund.

paul h.
06-21-2013, 10:08 PM
I almost bought THE BIG HEAT last night, but chickened out. I look at their website often, but the prices are just high enough to make me think twice. Might be different if I was making some money. Criterion is a similar issue, but when they go on sale, I grab a few (like the 50% sale for some on amazon right now). Anyway, I have THE BIG HEAT on dvd, and wish I had the blu. And so many others...

If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.

Not really. Some (6, I think) of the Sony titles that TT have released have been or will be released in Germany (unfortunately, none that I want) and importing them is less expensive than buying the TT Blu. For example, the German AS GOOD AS IT GETS Blu-ray is about $25 or $26 shipped from amazon.de.

Derrick King
06-22-2013, 11:52 PM
One of the Twilight Time people posted at the HTF that they have licensed aroud 40 titles from MGM. Pray that anything you want had already been picked up by Criterion or Shout.

Jimmy Simard
06-23-2013, 12:58 AM
At least contrary to Shout! they won't get an ugly as hell cover... too bad they aren't the one who got Unholly Rollers as we would get it on blue and not in a cheap ass 4 movies set.

Derrick King
06-23-2013, 01:57 AM
You're wrong about ugly covers, Twilight has had a few really awful covers. And does UNHOLLY ROLLERS have an HD master, 'cause if it doesn't Twilight will not pony up and pay for one.

Jimmy Simard
06-23-2013, 02:46 AM
MGM did create an HD master.

To quote jobla on Latarnia

"MGM has a restored print of UNHOLY ROLLERS in widescreen and with all of the original rock and roll songs intact. That print has only appeared on some MGM satellite channel, so it's not commonly available. At least we know that the film has been properly restored--even if most of us aren't permitted to see it."

Even better the limited pressing would permit to bypass the music rights issue... but it's just talking since it is Shout! Factory who have the rights and since it isn't an horror film already release countless time I expect the worst.

Derrick King
06-23-2013, 06:37 PM
Ah. If the limited edition model would get around the music rights issues, then I think UNHOLY ROLLERS would probably be better off with TT. It is also a title that I think would be perfect for the 3000 copies only, but, without knowing the titles, I have suspicion that among the 40+ MGM titles that TT picked up, a lot of them would be better off with Criterion or Shout.

Lalala76
06-24-2013, 03:41 PM
Whats the deal with this label? Why do they release titles with ltd quantities. Wasn't Fright night on this label. That now sells for the price of a luxury yacht. Also did they have exclusive rights or something. Will we ever see NOTLD Savini (corrected of course) or Fright Night released by any other company.

bgart13
06-24-2013, 04:00 PM
Other regions can release them, such as the UK. Sony just has to get off their asses and do it. TT has a contracted agreement with Sony (and others) for 3k copies of their releases. That's how it is, and it is what it is. Take it or leave it.

Ian Jane
06-24-2013, 04:07 PM
Their contracts with the studios they've signed with dictate 3000 copies and 3000 copies only for whatever period of time is specified. That's their business model.

There's an interview with TT's Nick Redman here (http://www.hometheaterforum.com/topic/310943-interview-with-twilight-time-nick-redman-on-who-they-are-their-business-model-and-more/) that goes into some detail into why they do what they do.

In regards to Unholy Rollers, I don't think issuing it as a limited edition would bypass the music rights issue.

Jimmy Simard
06-24-2013, 04:40 PM
Are you sure Ian? I was under the impression that residuals fee only starts at a certain level of units made whatever they are for the music, the cast or crew members.

Ian Jane
06-24-2013, 05:05 PM
I'm not sure if that's the case or not but even if it is, I'd imagine 3k is enough to warrant residuals.

Roderick
06-24-2013, 05:44 PM
I have never heard of any wiggle room when it comes to licenced music.

paul h.
06-24-2013, 06:40 PM
I'm pretty sure the fee is per unit (of course, it depends on your contract). With the advent of dvd and now blu-ray, contracts usually have to be re-negotiated for the new format, unless it was covered in perpetuity in the original agreement. So, yeah, usually no wiggle room.

Derrick King
06-24-2013, 06:47 PM
I was under the impression that they selected 3000 copies because it is the most they can sell without having to pay out most or all of the residuals. (However, like Roderick, I've never heard of wiggle room with music rights.)

Can anyone in the business clarify if there is a number that you can sell before you have to pay residuals to the cast/crew?

Jimmy Simard
06-24-2013, 07:07 PM
I was under the impression that they selected 3000 copies because it is the most they can sell without having to pay out most or all of the residuals.
This is what I tought too... in fact the difference for the music residual is something new for me. Why it is different? an artist is an artist no?

paul h.
06-24-2013, 07:24 PM
Hmm. I hadn't heard that about 3000 to avoid residuals, although it might make sense in that by the time you call your lawyer (and his/her time for doing anything) you may have already spent the residual you were going to receive. Then you're into diminishing returns anyway.

Some music is done as a work for hire, and could be owned outright by the film company (usually the score instead of "needle drops" or pre-existing songs). It all depends on the contract and there are lots of different agreements.

Marshall Crist
06-24-2013, 07:49 PM
I think the "wiggle room" is that by only pressing what you actually sell (like with Warner Archives DVD-Rs) you only pay licensing for the exact amount manufacutred, and don't also have to pay royalties for a bunch of warehoused overstock that does not get purchased. Would apply loosely here as well if 100% sell-though in a short amount of time is a foregone conclusion.

Love THE DRIVER (1978). Love the dramatic minimalism, the terse dialogue, the stoic characters, the austere production, the night time atmosphere. It's a genuine noir in both content and style. It's Walter Hill channeling Jean-Pierre Melville. One of my favorite action-suspense films of the 1970s. Why isn't it better known and appreciated?

“The Other”
Limited Edition BLU-RAY Release
Only 3,000 units available at
www.screenarchives.com
Once they are gone – they are gone!

RELEASE DATE: TUESDAY, OCTOBER 8TH, 2013

“An outstanding example of topflight writing structure and dialog, enhanced to full fruition by a knowing director.” —Variety

“The performances, Robert Surtees’ lush camerawork, and Mulligan’s solid psychological insights make for thoughtful, sometimes even chilling entertainment.” —Time Out London

The Other (1972), directed by Robert Mulligan (To Kill a Mockingbird) and adapted by Tom Tryon from his own best-selling novel, is a psychological horror film set in Depression-era New England about a pair of young twins (Chris and Martin Udvarnoky) who find themselves at the center of a series of ghastly accidents that may not be so accidental, after all. Shot by the extraordinary Robert Surtees (Ben-Hur), and featuring a score by the superb Jerry Goldsmith, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.

“MINDWARP”
Limited Edition BLU-RAY Release
Only 3,000 units available at
www.screenarchives.com
Once they are gone – they are gone!

RELEASE DATE: TUESDAY, OCTOBER 8TH, 2013

“An involving horror adventure…[Director] Barnett has done well with material that might have been just gross in lesser hands, and admirably keeps the tone consistent all the way through to the end.”
—TV Guide

“A post-apocalyptic gore-fest funded by Fangoria magazine…Eye-gouging, blood-spurting nastiness.” —Time Out London

Cult horror veterans Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead) and Angus Scrimm (Phantasm) co-star in Mindwarp (1992), produced by Fangoria Films (an off-shoot of the popular horror film magazine). The film tells the grisly tale of a post-apocalyptic society in which the privileged exist only as “Dreamers,” eternally plugged into a virtual reality fantasyland, Inworld, while in the ravaged Outworld, humans have mutated into savage flesh-eaters, led by a mysterious, charismatic despot interested only in survival. Directed by Steven Barnett (Hollywood Boulevard II).

Andrew Monroe

I'm thrilled they're upping the number of releases, but assuming that the price stays the same, I'll have to very picky about what I get. At least with Criterion you can wait for the B&N twice yearly sales without fear of the ones you want being sold out.

Can someone help me out here. I feel that these are must buys, but I have to get in there when it matters. Can you only buy these through Twilight time themselves and are they usually region free???

Ian Jane
10-25-2013, 11:38 AM
They're available exclusively through http://www.screenarchives.com - as to the region coding, I believe all Twilight Time releases are Region A, not region free but I'm going off of memory. I can check a few of their discs when I get home later to confirm if nobody beats me to it.

I'm in for the new scan and new source for ZULU and I couldn't live without the 3-D MAN IN THE DARK. I'm also in for JANE EYRE with Mr. Orson Welles. I have some catching up to do with previous Twilight Time releases. I like Twilight Time but not the prices. Since they're limited editions, I spend the money when I have it.

Thanks Jimmy, Unfortunately I need the catalogue number more than anything which I cant seem to find, from any shots from the cover. There is method in my madness, as I've just taken a gamble, which is more than likely too good to be true. This was listed very briefly on Amazon under the Twilight time version, but at £9.99.As you know this sells for extortianate amounts. My head tells me that its been listed under the wrong cat number, and is in fact the remake, but I had to take the gamble at that price. I enquired with the vendor as to whether it was correctly listed, but as its a warehouse system, they couldn't tell me as its shipped based on the cat number and they didn't have access to which version it was.

Press Release 02/01/2014

Twilight Time are pleased to announce the exciting First Time ever BLU-RAY release, of Martin Ritt’s & Woody Allen’s lost treasure…

“THE FRONT”
Limited Edition BLU-RAY Release
Only 3,000 units available at
www.screenarchives.com
Once they are gone – they are gone!
RELEASE DATE: TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 25TH, 2014

“Martin Ritt, the director, and Walter Bernstein, the writer, have made a moving, haunted film…even in its comic moments, The Front works on the conscience”
—Vincent Canby, The New York Times

“A smart and funny film…it takes something that in no way should be funny and somehow manages to humanize and bring out the humor in it.”
—Erik Beck, The Year in Film: 1976

“Director Martin Ritt manages to add a visual sense of encroachment…that enhances scriptor Walter Bernstein’s layers of irony into a cinematic one-two knockout.”—Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine

The Front (1976) stars Woody Allen in his first dramatic role as Howard Prince, a nebbishy cashier/part-time bookie who, during the McCarthy-era communist witch-hunt, does a favor for an old school friend, a blacklisted TV writer (Michael Murphy). As his pal’s “front”—representing the scribe’s work as his own and collecting ten percent of the profits—the apolitical schlemiel is soon enjoying not just the money but the perks, including the love of a sophisticated young producer (Andrea Marcovicci). But in an atmosphere of fear, nobody’s above suspicion, and Howard’s growing friendship with another unfairly accused blacklistee (Zero Mostel) brings down the wrath of HUAC—and a confrontation with his own burgeoning conscience.

Twilight Time announces the exciting First Time ever BLU-RAY release of John Guillermin’s long-awaited epic aerial masterpiece…

“THE BLUE MAX”
Limited Edition BLU-RAY Release
Only 3,000 units available at
www.screenarchives.com
Once they are gone – they are gone!
RELEASE DATE: TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 11TH, 2014

“An entertaining WWI flying saga…beautifully mounted…it features stunning aerial scenes and sumptuous cinematography.”
—Glenn Erickson, DVD Talk

“The little things that bring a motion picture to life…are caught brilliantly by the director, John Guillermin. They blend to make…this film remindful of the past glories of the screen and memorable in their own right.” —The New York Times

“Uniformly fine performances…an exciting visual sense.”—Variety

Directed by John Guillermin and starring George Peppard, James Mason, and Ursula Andress, The Blue Max (1966) is based on Jack D. Hunter’s perennial best-seller about an ambitious young German soldier (Peppard) who, from the muck of the World War I trenches, becomes determined to join the aristocratic ranks of his country’s heroic fliers. The film details his journey as he moves up the ladder and into the skies, providing along the way some of the most thrilling sequences of aerial combat ever committed to the screen. Featuring music by Jerry Goldsmith (available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track) that has taken its place as one of the greatest film scores of all time.

TYRONE POWER & KIM NOVAK
“THE EDDY DUCHIN STORY”
Limited Edition BLU-RAY Release
Only 3,000 units available at
www.screenarchives.com
Once they are gone – they are gone!
RELEASE DATE: TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 11TH, 2014

“Director George Sidney has worked out some exquisite scenes that have fine imagery and feeling in color and on the CinemaScope screen…A strong taste for sentimentality should be nicely gratified…it should satisfy the choosy with its abundance of richly played old tunes.” —Bosley Crowther, The New York Times

“One of the best Hollywood weepies of the 50s, comparable to the best of Douglas Sirk in both its imaginative mise en scène and its strong feeling.” —Jonathan Rosenbaum, The Chicago Reader

Directed by veteran George Sidney and shot by the great Harry Stradling, Sr., The Eddy Duchin Story (1956) stars Tyrone Power as the charismatic pianist who came out of nowhere to become one of the 1930s’ top bandleaders and Kim Novak as the society dame who helps, loves, and marries him. Stratospheric success is laced with tragedy in this real-life story brought to the screen in superb Hollywood studio style topped by stunning location footage of a magically romantic Manhattan.

Twilight Time announces the exciting First Time ever BLU-RAY release of Michael Cimino’s signature masterpiece…

“THUNDERBOLT & LIGHTFOOT”
Limited Edition BLU-RAY Release
Only 3,000 units available at
www.screenarchives.com (http://www.screenarchives.com/)
Once they are gone – they are gone!
RELEASE DATE: TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 11TH, 2014

“A funny, tough-fibered crime comedy with an unobtrusive edge of drama…consistently entertaining and interesting…freshly turned in characterization and plot, amusingly ribald and neatly paced.”
—The New York Times

“Hilariously vulgar…Debuting director Michael Cimino obtains superior performances from Clint Eastwood, George Kennedy, Geoffrey Lewis, and especially Jeff Bridges.” —Variety

“A crisp, well-written caper movie sporting some stunning landscapes and a fine core of performances…told in fine detail with richly developed characters.”
—TV Guide

Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974) marked the directing debut of screenwriter Michael Cimino (The Deer Hunter, Heaven’s Gate), working under the meticulous guidance of star/producer Clint Eastwood. Eastwood plays a typically laconic loner, a big-time thief in hiding who hooks up with a goofy young drifter (Jeff Bridges, giving an Oscar®-nominated performance). First attempting to escape from a couple of vengeful former partners (George Kennedy, Geoffrey Lewis), then joining forces with them to pull off a risky robbery, Eastwood and Bridges give us an ultimately touching portrait of masculine friendship. Superbly photographed in Montana’s Big Sky country by Frank Stanley, and featuring a score by Eastwood regular Dee Barton.

Twilight Time are pleased to announce the exciting First Time ever BLU-RAY release, of Woody Allen’s masterful gem…

“CRIMES & MISDEMEANORS”
Limited Edition BLU-RAY Release
Only 3,000 units available at
www.screenarchives.com
Once they are gone – they are gone!
RELEASE DATE: TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 11TH, 2014

“Who else but Woody Allen could make a movie in which virtue is punished, evildoing is rewarded and there is a lot of laughter? The movie generates the best kind of suspense, because it's not about what will happen to people—it's about what decisions they will reach.” —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“It has the richness and breadth of a novel, told with the concision of a densely packed short story…The film cuts back and forth between parallel incidents and between present and past with the effortlessness of a hip, contemporary Aesop.”
—Vincent Canby, The New York Times

Woody Allen’s Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989) is a rare combination of film noir and black comedy, about an esteemed New York ophthalmologist (Martin Landau) whose affair with a flight attendant (Anjelica Huston) puts the careful construct of his life in jeopardy. As he contemplates a permanent solution to his problems, we are also treated to an interwoven story about another kind of moral crisis: a struggling documentary filmmaker (Allen) considers selling out by making a doc about a Hollywood jackass (Alan Alda), with the situation further complicated by the appearance of an entrancing TV producer (Mia Farrow). Highlighted by cinematography from the incomparable Sven Nykvist, the film was nominated for three Academy Awards®.

TT said on their facebook page that BRING ME THE HEAD OF ALFREDO GARCIA will be from the same master as the existing Blu-rays:

A note about the transfer: for those of you familiar with the foreign territory releases on blu-ray, this transfer is the same. There appears to be only one surviving HD master, culled from the best available sources. The transfer is detailed, colorful, and sharp, but its one blemish is the recurring incidences of white speckling, also known as "minus density" (trademark, RAH!) Apart from that, it looks very good. It must be remembered that ALFREDO GARCIA was a low-budget, indie road movie, shot entirely on location in Mexico, and it remains unclear what the state of the original elements actually is, and whether any of them have survived in reasonable shape.

02-17-2014, 10:47 PM
Martin Ritt's CONRACK was a major release in 1974, an important film in the 1970s and a very fine drama. It is cut from the same cloth as the social realism of the 1950s like On the Waterfront and Death of a Salesman etc. Ritt directed social realism plays on live television in the 1950s; he's one of the innovators of early TV, along with Frankenheimer and Lumet. The film's never been on home video before, that I know of. Based on a true story about a white teacher who inspires black children in a southern ghetto and so offends the white leaders that they fire him and shut down the school. Hume Cronyn provides a clinic in racism. He's above and beyond brilliant, and of course Voight, an actor who frequently annoys me, is at his very best. Everybody should check this film out. It's home video release is quite an occasion.

Question about these TT releases.....do they do their own transfers, or do they license them from other companies? Just wondering where the Wild At Heart transfer comes from, since it's already on blu-ray in other regions other than A.

Derrick King
03-04-2014, 07:45 PM
TT does no work, they use whatever the licenser gives them.

They have already said that WILD AT HEART Blu will be using the same master MGM used for their 2004 DVD.

Mark Tolch
03-05-2014, 09:13 AM
Ah. Thanks, Derrick. Being that it's probably the same transfer used on the region free UK disc, I'll pass on this one.

Derrick King
03-05-2014, 04:00 PM
No problemo, Mark. It is hard to justify spending $35 on a Blu-ray created from a 10-year old DVD master.


Honestly, just about the only TT titles that seem safe to pre-order are the ones they've licensed from Sony. (As far as I know, the only cock up with a Sony title has been the color timing on Night of the Living Dead.)

Twilight Time is doing a $10 off 36 different Blu-rays sale over the next few days.

Exclusive to Screen Archives.

It seems like only yesterday, but incredibly, Twilight Time turns 3 years old this month, and to celebrate we are doing something we’ve never done before which is to offer a special price-promotion on 36 of our Blu-ray titles (one for each month we’ve been in operation!) This promotion will last for exactly 5 days - it will begin with the April pre-orders on Wednesday, March 19th at 4 pm EST, and will run to Monday, March 24th at 4 pm EST. The promotion will be exclusive to SAE’s website at www.screenarchives.com (http://www.screenarchives.com) - this is a way to thank you, our intrepid aficionados, for all your support these 3 amazing years, and to give many of you a chance to catch up on titles you may have wanted but put on the back burner, and also to encourage new devotees to try some of our more esoteric back-catalogue items. And thank you again for your patience while the March titles have been delayed.

Over the course of these 36 months we have climbed a very steep learning curve, and that process continues apace.

Press Release 07/01/2014


The “Duke” was never “bigger”, and never “better” than as the big Chicago cop who turns London town on its ear in the brand new Twilight Time Blu-Ray release!


“BRANNIGAN”

Limited Edition BLU-RAY Release
Only 3,000 units available at
www.screenarchives.com (http://www.screenarchives.com/)

Once they are gone – they are gone!

RELEASE DATE: TUESDAY, JULY 8TH, 2014

“A well-crafted action movie—and besides, it’s got John Wayne in it. Wayne moves through the story with authority and conviction.” —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times


“John Wayne…is still the indestructible cow-poke despite a Chicago detective’s badge and the contemporary London locale.” —The New York Times


John Wayne is the eponymous Chicago cop in Brannigan (1975), sent on a fish-out-of-water journey to England to pick up a bail-jumping thug (John Vernon) for extradition. But to the chagrin of Scotland Yard, handsomely represented by Richard Attenborough, the mobster is abruptly kidnapped from under their noses, and Brannigan has to join forces with a whole different breed of cops—including Judy Geeson as a fetching if no-nonsense Detective-Sergeant—to track him down…all over a gorgeous 1970s-era London. Featuring a jazz-inflected score by Dominic Frontiere, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.

There was never a “better” bank heist film than Richard Fleischer’s unforgettable big cinemascope “Noir” in a brand new Twilight Time Blu-Ray release!

“VIOLENT SATURDAY”
Limited Edition BLU-RAY Release
Only 3,000 units available at

Once they are gone – they are gone!
RELEASE DATE: TUESDAY, JULY 8TH, 2014

“The reigning king of Southwestern noir.”
–Nick Pinkerton, The Village Voice

“A pulpy pictorial symphony of frames within frames, foreground-to-background dynamism, and razor-sharp coupling of faces.”
–Bruce Bennett, The New York Sun

Director Richard Fleischer’s noir-melodrama hybrid is a widescreen sensation, pitting a trio of vicious bank robbers (with Lee Marvin the sadistic standout) against a small Arizona mining town riddled with secret sins. Adulterers, alcoholics, voyeurs, and thieves—given life by a stellar cast of Hollywood stalwarts including Victor Mature, Richard Egan, Sylvia Sidney, Ernest Borgnine, and J. Carroll Naish—all find their fates hanging in the balance on one Violent Saturday.

Press Release 07/01/2014

Twilight Time is excited to announce the Blu-Ray debut of Woody Allen’s fascinating tale of the wonderful and fascinating medium of Radio!
“RADIO DAYS”
Limited Edition BLU-RAY Release
Only 3,000 units available at
www.screenarchives.com
Once they are gone – they are gone!
RELEASE DATE: TUESDAY, JULY 8TH, 2014

“One of Woody Allen’s most purely entertaining pictures…not simply about nostalgia, but the quality of memory.”—Variety

“Radio Days is so ambitious and so audacious that it almost defies description…it's inexhaustible, spinning out one delight after another.”—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“[Allen’s] most buoyant, comic and poignantly expressed of memoirs.”—Vincent Canby, The New York Times

Writer-director Woody Allen’s tenderly nostalgic, joyously funny Radio Days (1987) is a vignette-packed memory piece about growing up in Brooklyn in the 1940s, obsessed with the music, entertainment, and news of the wide world brought into every household via the magic of radio. A young Allen surrogate (played by a teeny red-headed Seth Green) lives with his parents (the wonderful Julie Kavner and Michael Tucker) and extended family in the wind-swept Rockaway neighborhood, their daily routines spiced by the glamour, excitement, thrills, and even occasional doses of grim reality coming to them over the airwaves. Also starring Mia Farrow, Dianne Wiest, and Josh Mostel.

A “Cukor” classic – with the “million dollar” cast, in the brand new Twilight Time Blu-Ray release!

“BORN YESTERDAY”
Limited Edition BLU-RAY Release
Only 3,000 units available at
www.screenarchives.com
Once they are gone – they are gone!
RELEASE DATE: TUESDAY, JULY 8TH, 2014

“The bright, biting comedy of the Garson Kanin legit hit adapts easily to film. Judy Holliday delights…her artful delivery smites the risibilities. William Holden is quietly effective as the newspaperman hired to coach her in social graces.” —Variety

“A very simple idea, but enlivened by a sharp, witty script, and by Cukor’s effortless handling of the brilliant performances…Magic.” —Time Out London

Director George Cukor’s 1950 screen adaptation of Garson Kanin’s hit play, Born Yesterday, is a classic of movie comedy, revolving around a corrupt junk dealer (Broderick Crawford) who comes to Washington to “buy” a congressman or two. Fatally, he brings along a Sleeping Beauty, his chorine mistress, Billie Dawn (the great, the unique Judy Holliday in her Oscar™-winning performance); under the ministrations of a newspaperman (William Holden) hired to “refine” her, Billie awakens to an appreciation of her own shrewd brain—and the nastier ways of her bully boyfriend.

Schedule update!

"Twilight Time regrets to announce that our planned August 12th release of the Jerome Kern classic musical CENTENNIAL SUMMER on blu-ray has been indefinitely postponed. This is due to ongoing and unresolved rights issues that prevent the film from being made available to home video at this time. It is hoped that one day in the not too distant future this situation will be rectified, but in the meantime we will adjust and revise our schedule accordingly. Along with many of you we are disappointed that the wait for this long out-of-print film will continue for that bit longer...."

FOLLOW THAT DREAM (1962) BLU-RAY - Aug 12th

THE SECRET OF SANTA VITTORIA (1969) BLU-RAY - Aug 12th

They should put La Bamba and The Buddy Holly Story in the same package. Together, it's a night of awesome hi-def cheese, separately, they're just sad.
