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...

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.

That's a pretty cool turnaround time! It seems like it only left authoring here about 2 weeks ago.

They already have the stock in Fopp in Covent Garden in readiness for Monday's release date, too. A fine irony considering that all the releases in the (parent?) Signal One forthcoming catalogue are on an endless series of deferrals.....

I literally just won a copy of this but would've pre-ordered - a no-brainer at £8.99, being a classic Western starring Jimmy Stewart and directed by Delmer Daves.

Very nice mate, congrats

I saw the comp but not until after my copy was already in flight. Speaking of which:

Cheers! Cool, just a commentary on this one, right? Pic a bit small but could just about make that out.

Apparently Plan B have at least 5 more titles lined up, and at least a couple are pretty big ones if you ask me...

Yep, just the commentary, and trailer. Tbh, with movies of this age they're going to struggle to pull too much together in terms of extras. We do know that they have, and continue to try though, so ultimately, if some of these are thin in terms of additional content, it's not through a lack of effort.

They obviously have The Sheriff of Fractured Jaw coming up next month, and then four more titles that either S1 will announce or Amazon will spoil in due course. Suffice to say though, yes, I think people will be very pleased with some, if not all, of the upcoming titles

Has any formal explanation of the distinction between Signal 1 and Plan B been made? I wonder why he started a second label, rather than simply putting everything out under one label?

I don't think so. Not to my knowledge at least.

There are more people involved with Plan B whereas S1 is, from memory, just James. Beyond that though, your guess is as good as mine, or anyone else's...

Perhaps it was done to share the workload and costs? I suppose it's not that different from Shameless and Cult Films being 'sister' labels, though I don't know if they actually share staff or not.

Anyway, I had assumed Plan B would just be classic Westerns but apparently they've got a few films from other genres/periods so yeah, similar range of titles across both labels. So far it seems Signal One generally include more extras but that does seem to change from title to title based on what they can get hold of. Little difference, from what I can see, and maybe they'll even merge eventually.
