FLICKER ALLEY is releasing restored versions in Blu Ray of the following film noirs in April:

 

WOMAN ON THE RUN, Ann Sheridan

TOO LATE FOR TEARS, Lizabeth Scott, Dan Duryea

 

Amazon is listing these two for pre-order at retail price of $39.95 each.  Very pricey and rivals Criterion in price.  Flicker Alley prices their new releases too high for my pocket.  I am sure the prints will look very good knowing this company. There will be several bonus features including commentary.

I believe both these were restored by the Film Noir Foundation (with help from UCLA). So Flicker Alley did not have much to do with it, except to manufacture and market the discs.

My complaint is the high prices Flicker Alley charges for their new releases.  I wait for the 50% off on Criterion sales, but it will be hard to find cheaper prices for these two film noir releases.

I am sure there are reasons for the hefty price tag. Greed being one of them. But also, the Film Noir Foundation probably is trying to make money off it in order to fund other restorations for films that desperately need to be preserved.

I know you are right but unless I can get these two Blu Ray's at a reasonable price I will not purchase them.  They are far from classics and not necessarily a must for my library.  I do think its great the Noir Foundation is putting forth an effort to restore many films.

MAY RELEASES FOR OLIVE:

 

PRIVATE AFFAIRS OF BEL AMI, stars George Sanders, Angela Lansbury

THE KING AND FOUR QUEENS, stars Clark Gable, Eleanor Parker

LEGEND OF THE LOST, stars John Wayne, Sophia Loren

All of those should do brisk business with consumers. I think the first one is among George Sanders' best work. He's excellent and plays the well-heeled cad to a tee.

I think I have the Lombard set. One question: is this a bluray release?

That's strange. The original Dietrich set never included 3 of those 4 titles.

I believe they were the Glamour collections that were released a few years ago. One thing that is slightly erroneous-- Universal may be issuing them, but they were really Paramount icons of the 30s. There's also a Glamour collection for Mae West and Claudette Colbert.

Universal seems to be releasing titles on DVD that are already available as part of the Universal Vault Collection (MOD). That certainly applies to the first three Dietrich titles listed (while Blonde Venus had been a part of the Glamour Collection of Dietrich films released a number of years ago).

 

Desire is one of her best, a sophisticated comedy supervised by Lubitisch and directed by Frank Borzage, with Marlene as a jewel thief and Gary Cooper as an American tourist who becomes innocently involved with a necklace she has stolen. This film deserves to be better known.
