It mentions Sergeant York as a trailer. Is this the bluray I wonder? Great film with Gary Cooper.


Key Largo is mentioned too.



Let's hope they all get released.

Hopefully; but they're there simply because they were on the previous SD releases.

Can I be the first to ask, what's the point of buying these as they were made long before HD was ever invented?:devil::rotfl:

Seriously though, must-buys for me:smashin:

We had releases for Casablanca, African Queen, now with the announcement of these two titles that leaves just Key Largo and The Roaring Twenties left for my essential Bogart films. I wouldn't say no to Sahara and The Petrified Forest though.

...don't forget The Big Sleep, still as crisp and snappy as if it were written yesterday, and today's film-makers would (almost) kill to get hold of a script like it.

I was *just* about to post that myself; I waited long enough for an SE DVD that never came, surely a BD cannot be far away.

I also forgot Dead End, We're no Angels and Dark Passage.
I have a feeling we'll wait a long time to see Dark Passage on Blu-Ray. Although Bogart appears to be in it all the way through, for the first hour
his face is covered by bandages
for reasons which escape me. It plays like half-hearted noir with some stiff dialogue between Bogart and co-star Lauren Bacall. Having said that, it's directed by Delmer Daves (3:10 to Yuma) and is an easy watch - just not a priority for HD viewing.

Sony has a very nice HD master of The Caine Mutiny which we should see before too long.

No I was thinking of Run Silent Run Deep (1958).

So the Caine Mutiny is a gap in my knowledge will have to read up on it.
Old yellow stain.

Suprised you not seen it it shown on TV quite a lot its one I think would turn up on Ch4 mos tlikely if not BBC2 the period is set in about the 1940's and as Pecker says a morally ambiguous story José Ferrer realy turns the story on its head although I dont agree with him apart from who he classes the hero of the plot
(not Fred MacMurray the weasle):

A couple of reviews are up for The Maltese Falcon :

DVD Savant

DVD Review

Both very positive, but I would expect nothing less from Warner.

Come on play, get mine sent!
