You're right. This was #5. I must have misread something or gotten bad info. But "Easy Rider", "Midnight Cowboy", and this film were three of the top five. That's insane when you think about it.

Just The Incident for me this time around.

I'll have to bank up so that I can order the full slate in March.

It's definitely depressing to see how the masses' tastes have changed for the worse.

Last night I pulled Bunny Lake is Missing from my mile-high stack of unwatched BD. What an interesting film. I found the story of sibling love and madness mixed with police procedural, and its offbeat nature, all quite compelling.

One of the most interesting aspects of the film is Preminger's choice of cast. From the little I've read about the great director, he had a reputation as a demanding and exacting taskmaster who intimidated actors. Yet in Carol Lynley and Keir Dullea, he cast relative unknowns as the film's sibling protagonists, and surrounded them with some of Britain's most accomplished talent (Laurence Olivier, Noel Coward, Martita Hunt, Finlay Currie, etc). While Lynley acquits herself well, Dullea simply looks like he is trying too hard, and comes across as an enthusiastic amateur. However, their presence in the film playing against established greats certainly does amplify the "fish out of water" aspect of the story.

As the police detective heading up the investigation into the disappearance of a girl who may or may not even exist, Olivier is about as understated as I've ever seen him - his role juxtaposing nicely with the intensity of Lynley's near-permanent emotional turmoil. Coward has a quite remarkable cameo as a kinky landlord, which I enjoyed immensely and which added to the overall quirkiness of the film.

The black and white CinemaScope presentation is extremely solid and pleasing throughout, although at times lacked contrast and seemed a little pale (I'd be interested to compare with the Powerhouse Indicator release from the UK). There is also some excellent camera work that struck me as quite innovative for the time (1965) and seemed a precursor to some of the Steadicam techniques we are familiar with now (following an actor into and then out of a room, etc.).

I think like many viewers, I was able to work out the "twist" before it was revealed, but that didn't spoil the impact at all. In fact, there is plenty to enjoy in multiple repeat viewings. I know the TT release is OOP, but there seem to be copies available around the full retail price. And of course, the Powerhouse Indicator release is region-free.

And don't forget the haunting score by Paul Glass. I bought it on CD from Intrada a couple years ago.

Also, the Twilight Time Blu-ray of BUNNY LAKE has one of the label's best commentary tracks.

And let's not forget Noel Coward's immortal comment on meeting the leading man, "Keir Dullea, gone tomorrow."

It's sold out, and even if it wasn't I question the validity of that page.

I just purchased it. I had already posted it in another thread before this one. Must have only had a few copies. I'll let you know when I receive it on Wednesday if it is valid. Otherwise, I'll just return it.

I'd be very, VERY surprised if that was the actual Twilight Time release. You'll probably end up with the Australian disc or something.
