The Scalphunters is a great, fun Western. Not made in Italy but with strong Italian Western influences. I was about to order the German version...not anymore : cool:.

Because Last Year Twilight Time stated they were entering a deal with MGM/UA and there were many titles they were looking out (I believe they were looking at 40 titles) - some they wanted to release but had to pass because the master was not in top shape.

Almost a year later Kino announces a deal with MGM/UA. So due to the time difference and Twilight's statement on sub par masters....

I'm sure that's not the case here. I've heard good things about Region B blu releases of The Scalphunters, Duel at Diablo (Australian release) and Mr. Majestyk.

But that´s not right because the picture quality of the German Blu-ray "Mr Majestyk" sucks.

That's just your opinion. Few people from here and elsewhere had good things to say about the transfer.

Just watched Paris Blues on YouTube. It wasn't, as I remembered, just another Young White Guy With a Horn story. There's a lot going on in the story, perhaps too much (artistic freedom vs settling down, racism, drugs, jazz, and being an ex-patriot American) but what impressed me was Martin Ritt's direction. There's the opening sequence where he goes from an interior tracking shot, to an exterior tracking shot, back to another interior tracking shot. The star of the movie is really Paris and he (and cinematographer Christian Matras) photographs it beautifully. I don't think I'll be pre-ordering, but I'll probably pick it up at some point this year.
Current pre-orders:
05/02/2017: Seven Days in May
05/30/2017: One, Two, Three

Glad a lot of these have been at one time or other on MGM HD, else my wallet would be crying uncle right about now. Duel At Diablo just showed up on my dvr...

Probably will grab a few eventually.

Kino seem to be pumping out these MGM/UA titles - it looks like we can expect about 8 a month. I'm very interested to see what they have planned for Sep-Nov, particularly in the way of horror titles. I expect it's them that has Burnt Offerings, and Twilight Time who have Audrey Rose (we should also find out TT's Sep/Oct slate in a couple of weeks). I imagine Kino will go more for 60s-early 70s horror. Might we get the likes of Raw Meat, the Count Yorga films, The Night Stalker/The Night Strangler, perhaps even a few Vincent Price films that Scream might have overlooked for a potential second VP set?

Someone just posted that On the Beach (1959) is coming from Kino Lorber later this year.

No idea how I'm going to fund these Kino Lorber purchases over the next few months.

Does anybody know of any reason A Kiss Before Dying (1956) might not be in play here?

It's a great book, a fun story and even a halfway decent BD release should look absolutely fantastic.

Was The Earthling (1980) an MGM/UA release? I'd love a BD of that

I'm anticipating Judgment at Nuremburg! Many of the titles they've announced have been out-of-print on DVD for some time -- Separate Tables, Witness for the Prosecution, Duel at Diablo, Scalphunters, etc.

I've been begging for a Blu-ray release of The Earthling since I arrived on this site. It's one of my long-lost favorites, and it was never even released on DVD.

I have an "unofficial DVD" that was pulled from a VHS transfer, but this movie deserves a better treatment.

I really hope they do JUGGERNAUT from the MGM catalog. Hugely underrated thriller/police procedural from Richard Lester, starring Richard Harris, Omar Sharif, Anthony Hopkins, Ian Holm. Steven Soderbergh is a big fan of it, talks about it in the book he wrote about Richard Lester.
