Hi everyone,

 

I've been looking to buy the following movies, but I've looked everywhere with no success - does anyone know if they are available to buy on DVD, and if so, where can they be bought from?

  • The Devil Thumbs a Ride (RKO, 1947), staring Lawrence Tierney
  • The Sniper (Columbia, 1952), staring Adolphe Menjou

I hope someone can help!

 

Thanks.

Welcome to the message boards.

 

THE SNIPER was released on DVD by Sony (which controls the Columbia catalogue) in 2009. It's on a disc with four other Columbia noir called Film Noir Classics 1. I checked Shop TCM, and they do not have it. But you can rent it on ClassicFlix.

 

The other film you mentioned, THE DEVIL THUMBS A RIDE, is controlled by Warners and it has not been put out on disc yet. I don't remember seeing it on TCM, which means there may be a legal rights issue.

I have records of The Sniper (1952) being scheduled several times, the first was 2007-02, and the most recent 2016-03. 

The Devil Thumbs a Ride (1947) I have as being scheduled in 2001-05 and 2005-07.
