  1. OUTSTANDING restoration of the 1958 Hammer film classic, on a great region 2 bluray/dvd release that is worth getting! You get the 2007 initial restoration AND the 2012 restoration (aspect ratio 1:66.1) that includes MISSING footage shown only in Japan at the time. Audio commentary by historians Marcus Hearn and Jonathan Rigby. Extras include documentaries and interviews! A very important release that requires a region 2 player/region free player for viewing!!
  2. A totally major restoration, including lost footage, from the BFI in a incredible 3 disc (Bluray, HD DVD, Extras) set. The Hammer film classic, directed by Terence Fisher and starring Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, Melissa Stribling and Michael Gough. This film was initially restored in 2007 and again, in 2012 (with found footage), with concentration on visuals and audio which resulted in it looking as good as it was first released in 1958.

    "DRACULA" (Horror of Dracula) region 2 restoration

    I thought, as the filmmakers tried to put across, that the Count was the enemy of not only religion but of Victorian virtue-'The Terrifying Lover..." meaning he is going after your wife. Lee was seductive as was never caught in the follow ups-more feral or disdainful in his reaction to his female victims!
  4. The final Frankenstein movie from Hammer films (directed by the great Terence Fisher) , starring Peter Cushing, Shane Bryant and Madeline Smith ; finally presented in a clear stellar 3 disc presentation on bluray/dvd, on region 2, from ICON. Presented in full 1:66.1 AND 1.37:1 aspect ratios and fully restored in sound and audio with commentary by Marcus Hearn and star's, Madeline Smith and Shane Bryant. Also are several wonderful documentaries on the film that are worth watching!

    ILLYA MUROMETS

    Classic Russian film, shot in 1956, as a mega cinema event that was released in a cut edition called "THE SWORD AND THE DRAGON". TCM should run this as part of their import showcase!

    VIY 1965

    The classic Nikolai Gogol's classic short story of horror was filmed, in 1960, by Italian filmmaker Mario Bava, titled "The Mask Of Satan (starring Barbara Steele). In 1965, a literal film version was done and I personally feel is far superior! TCM should run this!

    Lynda Day George

    I would love to see the lovely Lynda Day George, who I have talked with many times, come on TCM and discuss her friendship with JOHN WAYNE as well as working with Bradford Dillman, Louis Jourdan, Marsha Hunt and others. She is a delight!!
