I believe the rights to the Republic titles are with Paramount, so hoping Eureka can eventually do a third deal with them if only to release this masterpiece - but I'd also love to see High Noon, Rio Grande, Macbeth and The Sun Shines Bright end up over here too. Fingers still crossed...

The RKO catalogue is littered with quality.

Plenty of possible reasons I guess....
The big problem is that Fox's westerns - particularly their John Wayne ones - are really, really slow sellers in the UK, and always have been since the first days of home video. Indeed, Westerns in general are bad sellers in the UK - go into any HMV branch and they're the one genre the give the least space to. By contrast there's always been a huge market for Westerns in Germany, which is why there aren't just so many titles on BD and DVD that haven't even been released in the US but their investment funds are the majority backers of almost every American western made over the past decade or two.

The 740 feature films have been held in perpetuity by the BBC in the UK since 1979: the problem is that their master material generally varies from pretty poor to shit on toast. Warners have better material but even they are limited by many of the original negatives, including Citizen Kane, being lost in a fire in 1980 and too many of the titles not being financially viable for the kind of major restoration they need. Like the French DVD releases from Editions Montparnasse, many of the BBC's masters are pretty dodgy standards conversions from NTSC to PAL.
