It is my pleasure to announce the first two films being released by our home video label: Another Man's Poison (1951) starring Bette Davis and Miss Annie Rooney (1942) starring Shirley Temple.

Both will be released on DVD & Blu-ray for the respective retail prices of $24.99 and $29.99 and will be available at all major online retail outlets including Amazon, TCM and MoviesUnlimited in the coming days. Street dates are March 28th for Poison and April 4th for Rooney.

About the transfers, we acquired Cohen's stunning restoration of Poison for this release and transferred and restored Rooney which now looks terrific. We'll be posting clips on our Facebook page in the coming days. There are no bonus features, but they will be English subtitled.

More about our other future releases coming this week also. In the meantime, stay up to date by visiting our Facebook or Twitter page.

Another Man's Poison (1951)

In her first role since starring as Margo Channing in the Academy Award®-winning All About Eve (Best Picture, 1950), Bette Davis plays mystery writer Janet Frobisher, a cold and conniving woman who will stop at nothing to get what she wants -- and what she wants at the moment is her secretary’s fiancé Larry (Anthony Steel).

But Janet’s plan hits a snag when her estranged husband shows up unannounced after attempting to rob a bank. Her husband’s partner in crime, George (played by real-life husband Gary Merrill), further complicates matters for Janet when he pays her a visit later the same day. Getting rid of one of them proved easy. The other, not so much.

Filmed in England and co-produced by Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Another Man’s Poison presents the dynamic Bette Davis at her devious and beguiling best.

Miss Annie Rooney (1942)

It’s spring in the Rooney household, and starry-eyed Annie dreams of blossoming love. Her father dreams of something more tangible -- to be parked on easy street. But in their working-class Irish neighborhood, the odds are against them both.

Shirley Temple stars in the title role of Miss Annie Rooney and displays all the endearing charms that made her America’s little sweetheart. Along the way, Annie jitterbugs a path straight into the heart of Marty (Our Gang alum Dickie Moore) who may fulfill the hopes of both Annie and her father.

Co-starring William Gargan and Shirley’s Captain January co-star Guy Kibbee, and featuring Peggy Ryan, Roland Dupree and June Lockhart, Miss Annie Rooney is a fun, heart-warming treat that all Shirley Temple fans will enjoy!

This is great news, but I'm not familiar with Classicflix. Will these be pressed discs or BD-R's?

At that price I'm going to need at least the trailer included.

Interesting that Cohen is licensing out titles domestically.

I'd assume they'll be pressed discs as it's the proper blu-ray logo on the cases in the mock-up photos as opposed to "Blu-ray Disc" which is on cases for BD-R releases.

I'm glad I rent from them and they even have tons of WAC DVD titles available. Of course they'll be offering this for rent

The case means nothing. My Film Detective Kansas City Confidential BD-R release uses the exact same case as hundreds of other pressed releases by other companies. Just pulled it out to be sure.

I thought that there were two separate releases of Kansas City Confidential. One was a pressed disc in a standard blu-ray case and I believe the other release was a "restored" BD-R version in a case with "Blu-ray disc" on it. Of course I may just be cofusing the Film Chest release and the Film Detective release.

It was my understanding that BD-R's cannot be issued in cases with the standard blu-ray logo on them becuase BD-R discs do not fully meet the blu-ray criteria as outlined by the blu-ray disc association.

Either way, I hope these are indeed pressed discs.

Great news that we got a label focusing on just the classics. There's so many movies from the 30s-50s that need BD releases, just as long as the picture is nice and clear of course.
BD Wishlist: Grandma's Boy, Splendor in the Grass, Ginger Snaps Trilogy, That Night, Roman Holiday, Kitty (1945), Paris When It Sizzles.

Yes, there are two releases of Kansas City Confidential - the original was pressed, and the newer one is BD-R.

Technically, you are not allowed to use the Blu-ray Disc logo for BD-Rs, that is against the rules of the Blu-ray Disc Association. But small labels like this fly under the radar most of the time and get away with things like that.

I'd say distribution through Shout already confirms that these will be pressed, but if there is still any doubt, I did ask them on their Facebook page and I was messaged back that yes, they will be pressed discs.

Looks like Amazon didn't get the message about the 29.99 pricetag

Wow, a Mann/Alton set would be a dream release! T-Men and Raw Deal should look fab on BD. I'm wondering what the potential third film will be, as He Walked by Night is with MGM and Border Incident/Devil's Doorway are WB. I guess it has to be Reign of Terror (aka The Black Book) by process of elimination. (I found it to be a minor Mann, but beautifully shot of course.)

I have the more recent BD-R version (unfortunatly - wish I had the pressed one).....it is in the Same "Elite" brand case as hundreds of my other titles.

And that is the only BD-R release I own.


On another note...some good titles in that update of what is in the pipe that I'm interested in. Hopefully they get some reasonable street prices. The $40 pre order on what is available on Amazon isn't going to cut it.

T-Men, Raw Deal, & You Only Live Once for me. These are all fantastic announcements though. Going to have to start keeping a close watch on this thread, I think.

I cannot wait to upgrade my DVDs of Raw Deal and T-Men.

I have a great region-free Spanish disc of You Only Live Once, but I might double-dip on general principle.

All eight of these discs look like winners, though.
