filmlover, some good titles here but I wish Olive prices were not so high especially with no extras. Not even a trailer. So I guess I will continue to be very selective in what I buy or wait for a good used price.

Olive has pushed the release of both YOUNG AT HEART and CRY DANGER from October to January 2014.

 

And yes, did not expect anymore Universal Vault films since they seem to be sporadic in releasing much of their library. How about a Ray Milland collection.

Exciting news - those two rare Paramount precodes!

 

Though quietly released with with no fanfare Universal Vault seems to be opening the Paramount vaults at long last!

Lately it's been a disappointing MOD program with lots of re-issues and individual re-issues of box set titles so these are indeed unexpected and welcome.

Let's hope it's the beginning of a trend for the Paramount catalog.

 

(These films are part of) over 700 Paramount productions, filmed between 1929 and 1949, which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution, and have been owned and controlled by Universal ever since. -IMDb

Its unlikely for FOX to release this title on BR. DVD-R is more likely. I am sure it would not sell well. I am still betting on MOTHER WORE TIGHTS for a BR release. And MOTHER had already been released on VHS.

You're right - unlikely we'll see Diamond Horseshoe on blu (at least any time soon) but hope we get Mother Wore Tights soon. I think you meant previously on VHS - Diamond Horseshoe was about the only one that wasn't.

Looks like Amazon pulled the listing of the release of JUMBO from the upcoming schedule of 10/8. Somehow, something was wrong since 10/8 is a Wednesday and new releases come out on Tuesday. No press info at all so its all quite strange what is happening with this title.
