    I have the region 2 discs of those too, held off on PHANTOM LADY and made do with my TCM recording. I don't have any insider information Apronikoff, but going by past history with TCM exclusives, it's unlikely there will be individual releases. I don't mind double dipping on those two films, they're so good and I also think there's room for improvement on them.

    Ian, you really need to see LADY. It's one that's a must for even a casual noir fan. And the other two ain't pikers!

    Yeah, that Chandler title has me interested too. I'll probably plunk down for this set when it's available if the reviews are good.

    And THE GLASS KEY, as you probably already know, is based on a Dashiell Hammett novel. Brian Donlevy is in this one too, with Ladd and Lake. There was an earlier adaptation with George Raft (1935), it's inferior to this one but still also worth seeing and MIA on dvd.

    I'm actually 99% sure I've seen The Glass Key. My memories are fuzzy, but I think I have a VHS rip of it somewhere.

    Good review of the sleeper noir FOREIGN INTRIGUE (1956) on this interesting blog:

    I like the film quite a bit more than Colin does.

    I know Ian mentioned a LAURA BD, but here's a follow up with a date I saw at the Back Alley Noir forum:

    "Robert Crawford a moderator at Home Theater Forum, has posted that Fox is releasing " Laura " on blu-ray next year on Feb. 5th."

    Really looking forward to this and DOUBLE INDEMNITY on BD.

    Awesome news. I'll gladly upgrade on both titles.

    Yet another reason to wait for the Image BD of SUDDENLY - the HD Cinema Classics blu has it in the incorrect aspect ratio. It's 1.37.1 instead of widescreen.

    SUDDENLY at dvdbeaver

    In other noir BD news, saw at the BAN boards that Olive Films has confirmed on their official Facebook page that they are working on the terrific noir THE FILE ON THELMA JORDON for a future release.

    Interesting about Suddenly. The framing doesn't look bad in those screen caps though and it does seem to offer a pretty nice upgrade in terms of detail.

    Yeah, the SUDDENLY BD seems to be their best one yet in terms of picture but I think the Image sounds worth the wait. This was posted at the BAN boards several days ago:

    "Image is reporting that the blu-ray transfer is coming from the original 35mm studio fine grain master print. Also, the blu-ray release will contain some cool special features: two new audio commentaries, one with Frank Sinatra Jr. and the other with film scholar Drew Casper, as well as the film short "NY, NY: A Day in New York."
