Nick, no offence meant and let me apologize for obviously misunderstanding your comments way back then and then referring to them from memory months later. I only requoted your comments in this thread to make clear to which statement I was referring in this thread here. There is indeed a difference between what you said and how I misquoted it here.peerpee wrote: Tommaso, I'm concerned about being misquoted. I did not say "the MoC Mizoguchis barely (if at all) recuperated their costs" as you implied I'd said. My comments were made just as the last of the twinpacks had been released and was based on initial sales.
Re-reading some replies to your post way back then, it seems that there was a genuine concern from people here about no further Mizoguchi (or Naruse) films coming from MoC soon. Again, sorry for expressing this concern in an inappropriate way which twisted the facts of what you wrote and how things are in reality.
