I actually called KINO the other day to see if someone there would spill the beans on what Keaton feature is next on blu. No luck. Oh well....didn't hurt to try. Can't wait for these short films though.

It's funny, I LOVE all the Keaton silent features except one.....THREE AGES. That's the only one to me that really wasn't funny at all.

Personally, I hope SEVEN CHANCES is next!!

I hope its The Navigator! I have a feeling they are all coming followed by a eventual boxset like they have for DVD.

No, Three Ages was funny for the Caveman segment (and for the fact that it was one big parody on the bloated "Intolerance"), it's "College" that was a a thin cousin of Harold Lloyd.
And Our Hospitality and 7C just turned up on Instant Netflix, so it's very possible we've got Chances coming up.

(Okay, key question: Does this include "Cops", which was supposed to be on the Sherlock Jr. disk?)

I was hoping for college next but I'm happy with whatever one they choose to do next. Anyone else slightly annoyed the general didn't get a slip cover when all the others have so far. I still can't believe how quick these seem to be coming out. The more the better though (as long as the same love and care goes into each release).

TCM (Not KINO) holds the rights to CAMERAMAN and SPITE MARRIAGE, right? Any chance we'll see those in the near future? I love both of those as well.

They're normally pretty cool with that but you'll have to go through the sometimes tedious process of having a chat with one of their employees.

Yeah, sometimes they're on it. Other times, frankly, I wonder if I didn't follow up with them to "remind them" to follow through on their pre-order price guarantee if they just wouldn't try to pull one over on me.

Good Show!

The only Keaton films I've seen so far are the ones released on blu-ray and that's my least favorite too. I think in part it may be because it looks the worst of them all by far (I wonder if the source was a ragged 16mm print or what).

I'm in the same situation. They didn't update the price on my order. Sent them an e-mail, waiting for the reply.

Just tried "Chatting" with Amazon about this. No dice. Email sent....



EDIT: Got tired of waiting and called. They gave me the credit, but I'll have to use it on my next order. That's fine, but quite strange. I guess you really gotta watch Amazon pre-orders now. Their systems are not communicating with each other. Always check your invoices!! This is the second time this has happened to me...and I haven't Pre-Ordered that much. Once? Fine...just a glitch. Twice? They got problems.

Not only that, but they don't have something like the nice Price History feature that's readily available here on Blu-ray.com, which allows you to see the historical pricing info on a particular title. I find that very odd. This title clearly dipped to 28.99 for a day. If I wasn't so OCD and impatient with my orders -- I would have never known! I may cancel all my Pre-Orders set for this September and just wait for good prices. I don't know...

I'm with you on that one, bro! I don't see what the benefit is anymore of pre-ordering at Amazon.

I understand you, I have kind of the same feelings. Now I only pre-order stuff that has an agreeable price (something I don't mind paying) to begin with. The rest I wait. But I try to pre-order everything I can. I like to show my support for old movies. Waiting for sales you don't do that, and I want them to keep releasing titles.

A clueless Customer Service guy answered my mail rejecting my claim because the price is back to $37 again (I didn't know they couldn't check the price history and now at least it makes sense). But I got the refund anyway. I also got one of those "your saving" mails you get when they ship you some item you pre-ordered and later the price came down. At least somebody got it right (maybe it's because I tried to cancel while "shipping soon" and wrote the reason for it? I don't think so but I don't know).

I looked for this when the price was under $30, but now it appears when the price is back up. I will wait to buy until it drops back to its low again.

FYI, keep an eye out for when Borders does another 40-50% off coupon, which will knock this down quite a bit in price. That's how I got mine.

It won't work that way. Some of the stock will be sent back to the distributors, who are among the biggest creditors. The rest of the stock will be sold to a liquidator, just as with Circuit City or Tower Records. And even though they'll be advertisements claiming that the stock is from 30% to 70% off, the prices will be quite high, although people will pick the stock apart anyway thinking that the prices are good. At least that's what I've almost always seen in the past.

When Tower went under, I was only able to get a very few bargains and I think those were accidental, caused my mis-priced merchandise. When HMV went under, I thought I could pick up some nice boxed sets that I had always wanted, but again, they were still over-priced. When Circuit City went under, I thought I might be able to pick up a high-end TV cheaply, but the reality was that they were charging hundreds of $$$ more than a place like J&R (in NYC) was charging every day. I actually stopped someone from buying a TV when I showed them that the price at J&R and B&H was far less than this supposed "going out of business" sale.

Thank you very much. I will have to check them out again. I lost touch after they changed many years ago from being a laserdisc dealer.

What do you think of this? (from the review):

"As a kind of experiment, though, Kino has also provided "digitally enhanced" alternate versions of The High Sign, The Boat, Cops, and The Balloonatic. Here's the disclaimer that appears before these enhanced versions:

"Generally, Kino International does not apply digital noise-reduction processes to films that show wear, as it subtly undermines the integrity of the image. For the sake of comparison—and for those who prefer a more "polished" look—we are pleased to present this film in an alternate, digitally- enhanced version."
"

Why would they do that? It's just plain weird to me. Have they taken on educating the public? or is it a bad sign of things to come?

I just got it for $29 from Amazon. I hope the shorts are as good as Charlie Chaplin's Mutual shorts.
