Reckon they might just do Merchant Ivory, since they still have at least one active deal with a UK label (Eureka have The Old Dark House and King of Hearts coming up in the New Year). I imagine Arrow will have one or two more Cohen-sourced titles too. I'd be surprised if Cohen just tried to release whatever they could over here, Criterion UK-style.Ribs wrote:Cohen will be releasing Howards End themselves in the UK. Totally within their power but I've felt their partnerships with the UK labels have been very fruitful at producing the best versions of their titles and hope this doesn't mean that they'll be doing the same for the Rivette titles or even other Merchant Ivory restorations.
Seems the BFI failed to secure Howards End; I could've sworn they had confirmed a Dual Format release in a press release somewhere. Maybe they requested to port over all the Cohen extras, and Cohen responded by deciding to just port over the entire release? Either that or Sony weighed in and weren't willing to work with the BFI. Who knows...

Just got The Old Dark House. The restoration looks fantastic, but there's one strange thing with the audio - at 57:20, some loud hiss kicks in on the soundtrack. Eventually it goes away, but it's strange - I'm not sure if it was noise introduced into the soundtrack or if it's inherent in the soundtrack and they actually just processed everything else with heavy noise reduction. (The latter is very possible because it does sound like it was cleaned up quite a bit.)

Sorry if this has already been addressed, but I didn't find anything about it here. Does anyone know if Cohen's 75th Anniversary release of Hitchcock's Jamaica Inn is out of print? I was an idiot and didn't get around to buying it when It was released and now every merchant says it's out of stock and it's going to ridiculous prices on eBay ($100+) A different forum I found online said they are just being slow to reprint it and that it's NOT out of print, but that was from last summer. I sent them an email a week ago and contacted them on Facebook and haven't gotten any response back yet. Just curious if any of you are in the know about this.

This isn't new news, but it just crossed my radar and I can't find any mention of it on these forums, so: Cohen is handling U.S. distribution for the restoration of Peppermint Soda, finally confirming after nearly twenty years that Criterion won't be releasing this after all. But who knows, maybe they can still do Cocktail Molotov.
