Interesting. Anyone know when Criterion last released a Fox film? Also wondering if they made a deal with Disney or with Fox before the merger and if so, I wonder if they have any other Fox titles?

I like Jill Clayburgh. She´s also very good in "Starting Over"(she also got an Oscar nomination for that film) with Burt Reynolds.

I also know her from the 1980 film "It´s Your Turn" with Michael Douglas but it´s not a good film.

Normally, I would have said, that's probably not going to happen, but with this title reveal, I would say it's highly possible now.

to answer your original question, unless I'm wrong I think the last Fox (Searchlight) Criterion edition release was Malick's "Tree of Life" (?) oops, no 'Forty Guns' was a Fox movie.

Criterion have been increasing the pace of Fox titles than ever before, with Leave Her to Heaven, All About Eve, Cluny Brown, The Story of Temple Drake, The Grand Budapest Hotel just in the past year. Usually they’re sparser with the Fox licenses. I expect they’ll be more to come.

I'd highly recommended seeing Jill Clayburgh in Silver Streak too ... especially if you enjoy the Gene Wilder/Richard Pryor films. Seeing her in that film is what led me to watch An Unmarried Woman back in the 70s. I haven't seen An Unmarried Woman in decades, so will buy this just so I can revisit it again.

Another Fox title starring Clayburgh: Bernardo Bertolucci's La luna, a lurid and preposterous incest oater, with the poor actress trying hard - but failing miserably - to portray a famous opera singer having an illicit relationship with her son. Glossy rubbish, really: but it occupies a place in the director's output between Novocento and The Last Emperor and looks absolutely gorgeous, so would respond well to HD treatment chez Criterion.

Kino Lorber released it over 3 years ago.

Given how long it takes them to get stuff out, it is safe to assume that these Fox titles were licensed pre-Disney.

Great news! I've seen An Unmarried Woman several times over the years on the old DVD. Excellent film, and a real time capsule of late '70's NYC. The city may as well have been another character in the film.

This film seems to be a fairly accurate depiction of the changing sexual mores & attitudes in the '70's (that started in the late '60's)....I.e., more couples were divorcing by that time & as such divorced people (especially women) didn't have the stigma that they did in previous decades.

The late Jill Clayburgh was truly gorgeous in the '70's - she also looked fantastic in the film Silver Streak (w/Gene Wilder & Richard Pryor, 1976).

[Show spoiler]-There was a key sequence when JC was unfortunately stuck in a taxi with a middle-aged guy her friends set her up with. She had 0 interest in him, and at one point he practically attacked her - she had to fight him off, and then kicked him out of the taxi. It's notable that this guy had an ugly comb-over, and looked like he had never been to a dentist in his life His teeth were probably as bad - or worse - than the "We don't need no stinkin' badges!" actor in The Treasure of Sierra Madre - LOL. This type of "reality" is not something you typically see in contemporary films, and is one of the many reasons the '70's is my favorite decade for cinema - i.e., in many cases re: films from this era, you actually feel like you're watching a documentary more than a film.

-Really liked the ending scene; this featured JC carrying a painting that she had been given by her bf - and having difficulty doing this. I just thought it was a really cool scene that encapsulated NYC to a great extent. I.e., the crowds not batting an eye at the sight of a woman walking down the street carrying a huge painting - LOL.


[Show spoiler]One of my favorite scenes was somewhat after JC & her husband (the incomparable Michael Murphy, a veteran of '70's Woody Allen films) split up: There was a sequence where the affair with his younger gf was falling apart, and so he was trying to get back together with JC. But, JC stood her ground & refused to take him back - even though the split/divorce had definitely unsettled her to a great extent. I admired this strength/resolve of her character - and, again, this was obviously reflecting the changing social attitudes that the country was seeing in the '70's.

That man in the cab was the director, Paul Mazursky.
