By jove, you're right! It does open up the possibility of Olive covering previous Paramount DVDs.

However, their list of 43 acquired Paramount films last year are entirely new to DVD/Blu-ray, with the exception of 1900 (and another?) so its not likely they will be dipping into previously released Paramount titles anytime soon.

Since this is a Twilight Time and not Olive thread, let me bring it back home by saying I just got a peek at Those Magnificent Men and Cover Girl. The former looks spectacular from the 65mm elements, with great color (the one area where Chitty Chitty Bang Bang fails, being way too brown). And Cover Girl looks terrific, too.

Are the July releases going live for preorder on Friday?

yes according to a recent Fakebook posting Friday is indeed the day, but at present no info is on SAE at all, which is pretty ridiculous imo.
I just don't get why TT can inform people on Fakebook, but not get the same info onto SAE the same day.
In fact, it would really be great if TT understood that not every person on the planet cares about lame-o Fakebook or has an account there.

I agree with your suggest about the site. Thanks for the answer on the preorder.

I just wish the preorders would go up once the titles were announced rather than having to wait 3-4 months before they can actually be preordered.

I won't be holding my breath for SUZIE WONG from Olive Films, but I won't be doing the same with Paramount either, though I think this film is as good as BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S. Can anyone see Paramount giving SUZIE the same kind of treatment they've given TIFFANY'S? Very doubtful. So, that leaves Criterion, but I doubt they'd do it, even though there is a rumor that Criterion has ROSEMARY'S BABY.

We'll just have to wait and see, and wait and wait.

Meanwhile, I'm so ready for THOSE MAGNIFICENT MEN from Twilight Time. I can't wait to see this transfer.

You don't need a Facebook account to read their Facebook page.

I cannot load any facebook pages with my dialup internet connection, so facebook is useless to me even if I wanted to use it. Youtube and plenty of other graphic-heavy and video-heavy sites, too, for that matter.

Why still use dialup? With the $30 or more per month I save by not getting the minimum acceptable broadband connection, that's one more Twilight Time Blu-ray I can afford each month, and with the $100 per month I save by not getting the good broadband connection, that's lots more Blu-rays to buy each year. I wouldn't watch movies on streaming broadband unless that were the absolute only way to see them anyway.

Kind of irritating considering how carefully they used to be packaged, yet the cost is the same.
Yes. But my last order was the first time I ordered only 2 items where my request to ship it in a box was denied, so don't know anything of extra padding (when shipped in a box they were). My only other small order was when the Egyptian came out, I recall that was just the same kind of (lame) packing job. Seems you have to order 3 items or more in order to get a box these days.

So aside from the one damaged item I returned (Journey) and need to buy again, not sure I want the other two I don't have. Sigh.

It's not just a rumor that Criterion has Rosemary's Baby, although they're shy of an official announcement as of yet (maybe Friday will finally see that situation changed). But there's also a strong rumor regarding them working on The Blob as well, since someone mentioned it a page or two back.

Seems people have forgotten Sony's agreement for Mill Creek to distribute a bunch of their titles. I'm guessing The Blob would be a candidate. Criterion did the Steve McQueen original back in the day, not the 1988 remake which is a Sony property now.

Exactly. The Blob that will shortly be upgraded by Criterion is the original 1958 film, which is licensed from Worldwide Entertainment.

I ordered it Tuesday as well but mine only shipped today so I probably won't get mine until Monday or Tuesday (it always takes a long time for TT to get packages to me)

I, too, was not going to risk it I learned my lesson from Fright Night
