Don't usually buy these titles since they are very pricy and most I could do without but guess I will have to spring for LOVE IS A MANY SPLENDORED THING. Also bought LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN. Why oh why does not FOX release these two titles instead of farming them out.

Very welcome news. Just wish we could see a few more of WB's prestigious silent titles get the same treatment. The Wind, anyone? . . .

 

By the way, House of Wax is now set for release on Blu-ray 3D the same day. According to The Digital Bits:

Filmlover I seem to have a problem. I cannot make any lists at all with all the text running together (even with paste and copy). Can't use bold or underline either for some time and I can only use Plain Text. Any solutions as to what is going on?

No Filmlover, f I attempt to type out a list all the type runs together. Just straight typing is OK. Also bringing over a list runs together too. This has never happened before. And I don't know why I can never use bold, underline or italics. Could the browser have somethng to do with it?

OK, they've finally come up with something that is good enough to make me buy Blu. I simply must see this war epic with John Gilbert and Renee Adoree in high def. Nothing up to this point has been sufficient to make me buy anything Blu. If there had been Academy Awards in 1925, this would have won all the major awards walking away - maybe even a Best Actor award for Gilbert and certainly a Best Director's award for King Vidor.

1. DEATH HUNT 8/20

2. DRACULA, PRINCE OF DARKNESS, 9/3

3. DAY OF THE DEAD, 9/17

4. VOYAGE OF THE DAMNED, 9/24

5. SHOUT AT THE DEVIL, 9/24
