Ahead of the announcement, expected in the next week, of their November releases, Criterion today announced their upcoming mammoth box set, due this December, of 100 Years of Olympic Films. From their website:

 

We are thrilled to announce the December 5 release of 100 Years of Olympic Films, a landmark box set that documents the history of the Olympic Games through the lenses of an international array of filmmakers, including some of the world’s most acclaimed masters. Available in thirty-two-disc Blu-ray and forty-three-disc DVD editions, 100 Years of Olympic Films is now available for preorder at $319.96 from Criterion.com.

Spanning fifty-three movies and forty-one editions of the Olympic Summer and Winter Games, this one-of-a-kind collection assembles, for the first time, a century’s worth of Olympic films—the culmination of a monumental, award-winning archival project encompassing dozens of new restorations by the International Olympic Committee. These documentaries cast a cinematic eye on some of the most iconic moments in the history of modern sports, spotlighting athletes who embody the Olympic motto of “Faster, Higher, Stronger”: Jesse Owens shattering sprinting world records on the track in 1936 Berlin, Jean Claude-Killy dominating the slopes of Grenoble in 1968, Joan Benoit breaking away to win the first-ever women’s marathon on the streets of Los Angeles in 1984. In addition to the work of Bud Greenspan, the man behind an impressive ten Olympic features, this stirring collective chronicle of triumph and defeat includes such landmarks of the documentary form as Leni Riefenstahl’s Olympia and Kon Ichikawa’s Tokyo Olympiad, along with lesser-known but captivating contributions by major directors like Claude Lelouch, Carlos Saura, and Miloš Forman. It also serves as a fascinating window onto the formal development of cinema itself, as well as the technological progress that has enabled the viewer, over the years, to get ever closer to the action. Traversing continents and decades, and reflecting as well the social, cultural, and political changes that have shaped our recent history, this remarkable marathon of films offers nothing less than a panorama of a hundred years of human endeavor.

Blu-Ray and DVD Special Edition Collector’s Sets Feature

 

  • 53 newly restored films from 41 editions of the Olympic Games, presented together for the first time
  • Landmark 4K restorations of Olympia, Tokyo Olympiad, and Visions of Eight, among other titles
  • New scores for the silent films, composed by Maud Nelissen, Donald Sosin, and Frido ter Beek
  • A lavishly illustrated, 216-page hardcover book, featuring notes on the films by cinema historian Peter Cowie; a foreword by Thomas Bach, President of the International Olympic Committee; a short history of the restoration project by restoration producer Adrian Wood; and hundreds of photographs from a century of Olympic Games

Love with the Proper Stranger makes its debut on DVD and Blu-Ray on September 19th.

I am looking forward to this one. Natalie Wood and Steve McQueen both give one of their best performances. Plus there is hilarious comic relief by Herschel Bernardi as Natalie's over protective brother and Tom Bosley as a clutzy suitor.

great news about Barry Lyndon, a masterful film. Also, despite being a bit uneven, Fire Walk with Me has a smashing central performance form Sheryl Lee.

Amazon, Deep Discount, and the Criterion site get close to the B&N price but are still a little more. That is, if you're a member. Now if your B&N accepts a coupon during the sale, they blow the others out the water.

My B&N always honored the coupons until this last November, when new employees were "by the book". Before that, I'd use the coupons on pricey Criterion boxes. A $100 box was had for $38.16 in PA (6% sales tax). Basically 62% off.

I buy all my Criterions during the Barnes and Noble sales in July and November. That's 50% off. Plus members get 10% off. Some B&N stores even honor their coupons with Criterions. Although the coupons explicitly say not to.

 

Amazon often has Criterion sales, too. Maybe 4 or 5 times a year. But I don't think they have 60% off. You can also buy directly from the Criterion site, which has sales 2 or 3 times a year. I usually get a few whenever the sales are on, and have never had trouble buying from them.

Me too, depending on how much the Fanny Trilogy costs. To see these restored is almost too much excitement for me. Can't wait. (I don't care how much they cost, really).

 

It currently has a list price of $79.99 on Amazon, for either the Blu-Ray or the DVD version. It may drop a bit more by release date, but not much, I'm afraid. It's already dropped $20 from the earliest posted price.
