The gossip on MoC. Lists and polls are STRONGLY discouraged.

Extremely happy that they've finally gotten to more Keaton.

Also good news re: Lumet's film adaptation of Long Day's Journey into Night. Obviously a tremendous play - a cornerstone in American theater - and this is a keeper, the best version put to film, one of Hepburn's great performances (really the entire cast is outstanding) and for my money one of Lumet's very best works.

It's been years since I've seen Raining in the Mountains but I remember preferring it to A Touch of Zen at the time (which I've since come to appreciate a lot more) and to Legend of the Mountain (which I think is very good but not among his very best). I'd have to see it again but it was my favourite Hu alongside The Fate of Lee Khan (still to see The Valiant Ones).

Can anyone comment on Battling Butler?

I'm really not minding that MoC is just releasing a lot of Olive Films titles, even if they're not going to bother putting any extras on bleedin' Operation Petticoat. A lot of really nice stuff got pretty shabby Olive Films treatment, which I was grateful for at the time because Blu-ray releases of older movies was still something of a novelty, but now I can look forward, hopefully, to Sands of the Kalahari, The Sun Shines Bright, and a few others getting somewhat more dignified treatment.

I hope the third volume of Keaton is a four film set, because we only have Three Ages, Go West, College and, frustratingly, Our Hospitality to go.

I picked up volumes two and three of the Cohen Keaton titles, so can happily say you're all welcome!

I bought Kino's Scarlet Street recently, so I suspect we'll be getting it from MoC soon as well.
