Hulu?? Re-releasing it???  No.  I know nothing about what you are talking about.  This is a new Blu Ray release. Since when does Hulu release videos?

You misunderstood (perhaps because my earlier post was not entirely clear). Let me try again:

 

Hulu has been streaming a restored print of THE KID by Criterion for a long time. Is Criterion re-releasing it? Your earlier post said it is coming out in February which seems strange if it is already available on Hulu. I assumed that Criterion had released THE KID before, and that is why it has been on Hulu which has many Criterion restorations.

Criterion each year on New Year's posts a cartoon that's a preview of the coming year's releases. It's kind of a riddle/game to guess what titles are being depicted. For anyone interested, I'll post the address, or one of the more capable posters can post the picture itself.

Some of these may turn up on TCM later in the year. I love BRIEF ENCOUNTER. It was remade, by the way, in the 70s with Richard Burton & Sophia Loren. And pounced on by critics.
