Thank you Edgecliff. "The Captain Hates the Sea" is another release I will add to my John Gilbert collection. So glad more classic films are being released on video.

That's good that there are a few from the 1940's there. But please Sony, more 1930's! And how about some shorts compilations, such as the Columbia Charley Chase shorts?

June 7 releases:

Barbary Pirate (1949)
Key Witness (1947)
Love and Human Remains (1993)
Love Has Many Faces (1965)
Miracle on Interstate 880 (1993)

No Sad Songs for Me (1950)
Slightly French (1949)
Snake River Desperadoes (1951)

To date most of Sony's MOD releases have been from hunger. There may be one or two titles on this list that are OK including NO SAD SONGS FOR ME which is Margaret Sullivan's last film.

*New Releases 5/3:*

THE GODDESS (1958) This film follows young Emily Ann Faulkner from her unloved childhood to lonely superstardom as Hollywood heartthrob Rita Shawn. The great Paddy Chayefsky crafted his script around the talents of the film's star, Broadway titan Kim Stanley, and she more than delivers. An astonishing performance from a great talent. Also features Patty Duke & Lloyd Bridges. 16x9 WIDESCREEN


EIGHT IRON MEN (1952) Lee Marvin stars as a sergeant in charge of a squad fighting its way through Italy during WWII. Joe Mooney's determination to see his squad make it out alive is sorely tested when the most hapless of his unit get pinned down in a trench, mere yards from an enemy machine gun nest. Edward Dmytryk directs.


THE LIBERATION OF L.B. JONES (1969) Sterling Siliphant (The Heat of The Night) co-wrote the script for William Wyler's last film, a searing portrait of race relations in the South of the 1960s. When LB Jones (Roscoe Lee Browne), the richest African American in town, files for divorce, revealing his wife's (Lola Falana) affair with a white cop (Anthony Zerbe) he sets off a murderous chain of events. Superb cast includes Lee J. Cobb, Yaphet Kotto, Barbara Hershey, and Lee Majors. 16x9 WIDESCREEN


THE RELUCTANT SAINT (1962) Edward Dmytryk directs this film version of the extraordinary journey of Giussepe Desa (Maximilian Schell), from "village idiot" to Saint Joseph of Cupertino. Celebrated novelist John Fante contributed to the script. Also stars Ricardo Montalban. 16x9 WIDESCREEN.


BECAUSE THEY'RE YOUNG (1960) Dick Clark steps away from the bandstand to play a young teacher who finds romance while helping his students chart the turbulent waters of adolescence. This rarely scene youth picture also features the radiant Tuesday Weld & a young Doug McClure. 16x9 WIDESCREEN.


SWITCHING CHANNELS (1987) Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur's classic The Front Page gets an '80s makeover and revisits the same dynamic as seen in His Girl Friday. Christy Colleran (Kathleen Turner) is determined to gets out from under her ex-husband & producer John "Sully' Sullivan's (Burt Reynolds) thumb and marry the new man in her life (Christopher Reeve). But Sully knows she's a sucker for a good story... Directed by Ted Kotcheff (Fun With Dick and Jane). 16x9 WIDESCREEN


THE RETURN OF DANIEL BOONE (1941) Western giant "Wild Bill" Elliott puts on the spurs of Bill Boone, grandson of Daniel Boone, and takes on a corrupt town on behalf of a fair maiden (the winsome Betty Miles). And while Bill is busy cleaning up town, his sidekick Cannonball (Dub Taylor) is badly distracted by a fetching pair of twins (the Rodik Twins) that he mistakenly thinks is a single woman.


LARAMIE (1949) The Durango Kid rides again! This thrilling installment of the long-running Durango Kid series sees the Kid (Charles Starrett) racing against time to prevent an all-out war between the Cavalry and the local natives when their chief is murdered at a peace conference. Co-starring The Lone Ranger's Jay Silverheels with Smiley Burnette provided top-notch comic relief.

It does puzzle me a bit. There are so many Columbia titles from the 30s through the 50s that sit ignored and we get this stuff instead! Geez!

March 1 releases

Destroyer (1943)
Dirty Little Billy (1972)
Hammerhead (1968)
The Kid from Broken Gun (1952)
Laramie Mountains (1952)
Out of the Dark (1989)
R.P.M. (1970)

Thanks to Edgecliff and Filmlover for listing the titles, it's very helpful!

I just sent my dad a link for THREE FOR THE SHOW, as I'm sure he'd love to trade in his VHS for a widescreen. :)

of all places, Oldies.com seems to have the info on future releases
