According to Amazon KISMET will be released June 10. KISMET nor the recently

released HIT THE DECK are great MGM musicals. Where is SHOW BOAT or THE BAND

WAGON? I did hear that WB is working on the release of SHOW BOAT.

I find KISMET, infinitely better than SHOW BOAT.  It looks and sounds magnificent on Blu.

John,I have to disagree about KISMET. Although I love the score but I felt its a deadly dull musical. Only the sequence NIGHT OF MY NIGHT is gorgeously presented and lights up the film. Minnelli did not want to direct the film. I love the players and oddly enough I met all four stars: Blyth, Keel, Gray and Damone in the 90s. Yes I heard the film looks beautiful in BR and I have bought it. I do love musicals and anything directed by Minnelli. I do prefer SHOWOAT to this one but I really like the earlier version with Irene Dunne better. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

Here's another BD title from KINO coming 9/23 (don't think this one was mentioned)

 

TARAS BULBA

 

Looks like Kino has access to the whole UA library from MGM. Wish Kino would release some titles not yet on DVD/BD like GENTLEMEN MARRY BRUNETTES which shows from time to time on the MGM cable station. The print is quite beautiful.

Filmlover, I just realized there are two different editions of STAGECOACH. Different covers and list different, $39.95 and $49.95. Only see new edition on BARNES AND NOBLE. Amazon I think lists the cheaper on. Confused.

Can you post a link to the $49.95 one?  Are you sure you are not thinking of Red River, which is also Criterion and is $49.95?

You are right I GOOFED. Somehow got the two films mixed up maybe because of John Wayne. Pretty dumb dumb of me.

filmlover, I had contemplated buying some of the UA/Kino BD;s but have read reviews on two upcoming releases WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION and PRIVATE LIVE OF SHERLOCK HOLMES. Both reviews stated the upgrade is not that good so I will stick with my DVD's. And that goes for other releases. My collection has just gotten too big. Others that interest me are ON THE BEACH and TARAS BULBA so I will have to see what the quality is.

It's hit or miss sometimes.  Sabata, another one they have coming out at the same, got an excellent review from DVDbeaver.com:

 

"This is quite a handsome step above the hazier 2007 MGM, interlaced, DVD. The image crisps-up significantly, colors are tighter, contrast more layered."

filmlover, I don't know about you but I am glad Criterion decided to drop the dual format editions for the new releases. RED RIVER comes in a clunky box set and THE FRESHMAN in a smaller box set. They just take up too much space on the shelf and that is one of the reasons I am debating about the Jacques Demy set which is a very big box. I am running out of space and it was enough when DVD's came in clunky box sets.
