Well Paramount is at it again. For the umpteenth time four Audrey Hepburn films will be re-released on DVD with colorful new covers. Each disc has Audrey in large letters on the covers: FUNNY FACE, SABRINA, PARIS WHEN IT SIZZLES and ROMAN HOLIDAY. Paramount has sold these items to death. I could see a BR release, but another DVD release is ridiculous. Is this the fourth or fifth time that Paramount brought these items out? For anyone out there who still does not own any of these -- release date 3/29 SRP $14.98

from Blu-ray.com:

 

Speaking with the French magazine Les ann?es laser, Sylvie Collombet, chief of marketing of Paramount France, revealed two major titles that are on the studio's slate for Blu-ray release: *Once Upon a Time in the West* and Le Mans will come out in June, and *Breakfast at Tiffany's* in September.

 

Note that these titles may not be released in all territories.

 

On the other hand, Collombet also said: "We can't confirm a release date for the *Indiana Jones Quadrilogy*."

 

So if they will get them in France, then very likely they will get released in the U.S.

:) Breaking news. Out of the clear blue, Warner Archive is releasing *THE MERRY WIDOW (1925), DON JUAN (1926),* and *NOAH'S ARK (1928)* today. While it's good to see these titles finally available, it is somewhat disappointing that *THE MERRY WIDOW* presumably won't be released with the superior Orchestral score that I mentioned here recently, or the brand new Maud Nelissen score. As this film is well over 2 hours long, I hope it's burned to dual-layer media.

 

I would have to say that all three releases caught me by complete surprise. I definitely was not expecting them at this time. And here *NOAH'S ARK* is on TCM later this month for the first time in 6 or 7 years. You would think they would wait until after the broadcast. However, they have been showing a graphic of the Warner Archive discs just after airing them on TCM lately.

 

*DON JUAN* is certainly one of the most long awaited Silents that the WB has. I'm assuming this will be the same as the previous laser-disc release with the great original William Axt Vita-phone score. There is no indication that the film has been newly remastered, but it was always a very good print.

While I am anxious to see LAILA, I almost wish that TCM were debuting CHICAGO on the 3rd instead. I think it ties in much better with the FRAGMENTS presentation earlier in the evening. Plus the film has gotten allot of requests on the TCM boards. I plan to order LAILA this weekend. I have heard great things about the movie.
