Red Dust is available on DVD from two foreign distributors, but you would need to get an all-region player:

 

http://www.amazon.com/Harlow-Clark-Deluxe-Boxset-Booklet/dp/B0069ATP2E/ref=sr_1_7?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1345689934&sr=1-7&keywords=%22red+dust%22

 

http://www.amazon.com/Red-Dust-NON-USA-FORMAT-Reg-2/dp/B0042QR5QU/ref=sr_1_5?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1345689970&sr=1-5&keywords=%22red+dust%22

 

But as far as an American release, I think we would have to wait for Warner Archive to release it or for it to come out on Blu-ray at some time. Hold Your Man I have even less hope of ever coming out.

filmlover, do you know if Universal m will be releasing individual BR releases contained in the upcoming box set. I probably am only interested in getting VERTIGO and MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH in BR. I have many of the others in the set especially those that have already been released in BR.

filmlover, I meant selling the individual standard DVD's not the BR in the box. As its stands I only want about 4 of the BR: REAR WINDOW, MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, VERTIGO and THE BIRDS. Most of the other titles I either have on the released BR or standard DVD;s. The more recent titles like TOPAZ I am not interested in.

I have had it on pre-order with UK for awhile now. As a matter of fact, I have both versions that are available from Amazon UK on order, waiting until the actual date of release gets closer to decide which:

 

regular UK version:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B008H45YSO/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i01

 

limited edition coffin version:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B008R8E8VY/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00

 

I am also waiting for confirmation that they are region free.

 

(I have had a few titles from the UK that are region free that don't play on my regular Blu players: Sherlock Series I and II, and some Blus that are region B locked that I can't play on my all-region player (Brighton Rock, The Cruel Sea).)

 

As far as why the prices are less sometimes, I don't know. But I try to take advantage of them when it is a good deal. For example, I have Harvey on order from Amazon UK because it is only 7 pounds. Even with shipping, I expect to save about $10 from the American release and it i region free.

 

I also have on pre-order the Hitchcock Collection and the James Bond Collection.

 

I figure it is good to pre-order because it locks in the price (you save if it goes higher, and if it goes lower you get the lower price) and they don't charge you until it ships. Plus I can cancel at any time up until it ships.

 

By the way, did you notice that the region free UCE of Singin' in the Rain will be released in October in the UK and it is about $28 US with shipping?

filmlover, another alternative for me is to buy used. Never had any problems with this and mostly seem close to mint. A&C MEET FRANKENSTEIN may wait for a used ditto HARVEY. I have bought some of the Monroe titles used from the new BR and it does not bother me to have unsealed copies. This way I save much money.

WB is releasing THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT GIFT BOX SET in BR on 11/20. Since this has been released before, can it be a reissue or a cleaned up set since the prior release of these movies got negative reviews for the quality of many of the films in this set. Amazon claims all new digital transfers.

I think even with new transfers, it will not be good. Since this is a movie made up of hundreds of clips from films of varying quality, they would have to go back to each individual film to find the best quakity copy, restore the section in particular, do a complete recut of TE I, II, and III by inserting the exact footage from each movie (which, in itself, sometimes was an edited section of that particular film). I believe there would be absolutely no way that can be done unless they spend miliions of dollars and also have a psychiatrist on site because such an editing job would drive anyone crazy. The box art on Amazon, which could change, is the same as before. I think this is just a quick rerelease for the holidays.

Sounds like you are right filmlover. It even has the same cover art. One can only hope that this one was not just a re-release. Can't see what the point is since the old version is still very much available. I saw this listed on dVd beaver.
