They just reissued Remember the Night with a new transfer. This was previously available as a DVD-R, with only a very limited run of pressed DVDs to start. Is there a way to tell whether this new version will be pressed or not?

Based on the menu screens with Library of Congress logo, DVD Beaver review is for the new edition.

Considering we only have a totally minor Leisen so far on BluRay, Captain Carey MD which is nothing more than a sideline to his work, this is probably the most desirable title of the Leisen canon to become available in such high quality source material. But we get landed instead with a basic TCM Vault DVD.

It would have been so nice if Criterion had picked this over the - also minor but pleasant enough - Lewis Allen Uninvited for instance. I get the feeling it is now far too late in the era of Optical discs to ever expect anyone anywhere to manage HD releases of the Paramount Sternbergs or Leisens or even Sturges in anything like volume. And I hear the clock ticking to the end of the optical disc era.

Maybe someone at MoC might consider this in its next batch of Universals. If anyone there is listening. Craig? Kevin?

The Lady From Shanghai Vault release has been split off here

Midnight Lace DVD coming in March-- guess they couldn't figure out a boxed set to create around it?

EDIT: This has already been released in a region-free Blu-ray in Australia FYI

If anyone is still trying to sort out the "Sony titles remain pressed" theory in the face of some contradictory evidence, I can report that I just ordered the Karloff, Jolly Frolics, and both Jean Arthur sets (which are the oldest Sony TCM sets and thus most likely to be repressed by now) and all were still on pressed discs

Uh.... TCM Vault's next release is just some Robert Osbourne interviews. Did they give up on this line or something?

It will make the perfect gift alongside your Robert Osborne bobble head.

I love how the cover lists Robert Osborne as one of the people in conversation with Robert Osborne.

I think it's a conversation with Alec Baldwin that will premiere next month or so. I still find the most fascinating talk he had was with Betty Hutton.

It was on a month or two back. The one with Eva Marie Saint is coming up fairly soon (repeat or not I have no idea).

It looks like TCM is putting out a box set with You and Me in it in July. Should at least be worth comparing to the Koch Media release (although it's pretty annoying to be forced to pick up a third copy of Ministry of Fear.)

UPDATE: I got my Dark Crimes Vol 2 set in and it is on two single-sided DVDs, two films to a disc, like the Randolph Scott Westerns set, in a slim digipak. And it is pressed, for those who second guess these things every time.

TCM Vault is going in a bad direction with more TCM Originals instead of Universal or Sony licenses:

So I just finished the DVD of Ford's THE LONG GRAY LINE which is part of the TCM John Ford Vault Collection set. Throughout 2/3s of the film, the image occasionally jitters, causing this strange kind of slowed down look. It's kind of hard to describe. What might this be? For those who own the set, have you had problems with this DVD as well?

Remember the Night! Awesome. Now if only Paramount can dig up Swing High, Swing Low for blu-ray release.

It's PD, so if anyone can dig up suitable elements they could do it.

That is very much to be hoped for! UCLA has the best surviving elements, including a 35mm print (which I saw again last year during their Leisen retrospective), and which was compiled using "an incomplete nitrate release print...and the three missing reels...blown up to 35mm" from Leisen's own 16mm print, according to David Chierichetti in his book "Mitchell Leisen: Hollywood Director", an essential book for anyone with a serious interest in Leisen.
This title will require a LOT of work before persuading any distributor to become interested.
