Coming April 23rd on Blu-ray!

The House of the Seven Gables (1940) with optional English subtitles
• Audio Commentary by Film Historian Troy Howarth
• Trailers

B&W 89 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
Jealousy, loyalty, and a family feud between two brothers are all at play in The House of the Seven Gables, based on the classic novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne (Twice-Told Tales). The sudden death of Jaffrey (George Sanders, The Lodger) and Clifford (Vincent Price, Tales of Terror) Pyncheon’s father provides the vengeful and vindictive Jaffrey with the perfect opportunity to get his brother out of the way and seize the family fortune. Framed for murder and forced to leave his fiancée (Margaret Lindsay, Scarlet Street) behind, Clifford is sent off to prison, where he befriends Matthew Holgrave (Dick Foran, Fort Apache), the descendent of the Maule family, with whom the Pyncheons have a long history of turbulence. Can the two join together to foil Jaffrey, or are the families destined to repeat the mistakes of the past and live out the curse of their ancestors? Joe May (Asphalt) directed this classic thriller featuring Cecil Kellaway (Harvey) and Alan Napier (The Uninvited).


The Strange Door (1951) with optional English subtitles
• Audio Commentary by Film Historians Tom Weaver, David Schecter and Dr. Robert J. Kiss
• Trailers

B&W 81 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
Screen legends Charles Laughton (Witness for the Prosecution) and Boris Karloff (Black Sabbath) haunt the dungeons of a medieval château in this horrific adaptation of the classic Robert Louis Stevenson (The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) story. Laughton, the Sire de Maletroit, is an evil French nobleman, so obsessed with hatred of his own brother (Paul Cavanagh, A Bill of Divorcement) that he imprisons him in the castle dungeon. The Sire also tries to destroy the life of his brother’s daughter (Sally Forrest, Not Wanted) by forcing her to marry a rogue (Richard Stapley, The Girl from Rio), but his plans are upset when they fall in love. Aided by Voltan (Karloff), an abused servant, the lovers attempt to escape, but the Sire imprisons them in a cell with closing walls that may spell violent deaths for the young lovers. Directed by Joseph Pevney (Female on the Beach).

Nice, I criticized y'all earlier in the year for not doing this with the Crosby/Hope comedies, but I'd like to see more of this kind of thing: bundle smaller films together and give customers more bang for their buck-- and ignore the mouth-breathers who whine that they can't organize their OCD shelves with sets like this

All for it too. I much prefer this than individual releases that will end up costing more to the consumers (like Olive did with tons of their early westerns).

Helen Twelvetrees! That reminds me of hearing Jon Pertwee tell an amusing
story about how he was once mistaken for her.

Yep. By themselves I wouldn't be too interested, but as a set this is a lot more compelling for me.

Sometimes the licensing agreements prevent combo releases, which I imagine was the case with the Road films. These RKO films are through Lobster Films, it seems.

Not sure if it's the best place to discuss that, but probably : I watched this week The Night Strangler and The Night Stalker and was taken aback by the SDH subtitles punctuation issues that basically turned all the full stops into commas, rendering the subs quite bothering to follow. I'm not an avid buyer of KL releases so I don't know if these are one-off issues or if this is more widespread, but I'd recommend KL to be more careful into checking this kind of things.
PQ was top notch, though.

FANTOMAS 1960s: THREE FILM COLLECTION (1964-1967)
• Audio Commentary by Film Historian Tim Lucas (Fantomas '64)
• Fantômas (1964) - Trailer
• Fantômas Unleashed (1965) - Trailer
• Fantômas vs. Scotland Yard (1967) - Trailer
• OSS 117 Is Unleashed - Trailer
• OSS 117: Panic in Bangkok - Trailer
• OSS 117: Mission For a Killer - Trailer

Color 322 Minutes 2.35:1 Not Rated In French with optional English subtitles
Pierre Souvestre’s Fantômas was originally adapted for the screen by legendary filmmaker Louis Feuillade (Les vampires) in 1913. André Hunebelle (OSS 117: Mission for a Killer) introduced a revamped and modernized version of Fantômas to the 1960s OSS 117 and 007 audience. All three films starred the great Jean Marais (Jean Cocteau’s Beauty and the Beast) as Fantômas, a criminal mastermind and man of a thousand faces. The three films co-starred Louis de Funès as Le commissaire Juve, Mylène Demongeot as Hélène, Jacques Dynam as L’inspecteur Bertrand and Robert Dalban as Le directeur du journal. The first film, Fantomas (Fantômas), was released in 1964, followed by Fantomas Unleashed (Fantômas se déchaîne) in 1965 and Fantomas vs. Scotland Yard (Fantômas contre Scotland Yard) in 1967. All three films were beautifully shot in ’Scope, the first two in Eastmancolor and the finale in Technicolor.

Indeed! And, on a related note, it would be great if Kino could release more Feuillade. The CNC funded a restoration of Tih Minh last year, though I've not heard anything further about it.

Nixon, the Oliver Stone film? I've not heard anything about this release and blu-ray.com doesn't even have it listed in their upcoming releases database. Can you provide some details? Will this have any differences from the existing Election Year Edition released in 2008? Will the theatrical cut finally be included? Will it include the "making of" featurette that was included on the "Collector's Edition" DVD release but dropped from the "Election Year Edition" DVD & Blu-Ray releases?

Three rare Godards and one of Polanski's best. There's a good chance Kino's announcements will beat Criterion's.
