Sudden Fear is currently sold for $9.99 on amazon.com; Howard's End for $13.49. For Cohen BR's these are pretty good prices.

What a wonderful film The official story is!!! I've just watched an old print. In France has been restored and released but only on DVD + book with: Entretien avec le réalisateur Luis Puenzo

- Entretien en 4 parties avec le réalisateur (40 min) : « Un scénario sous haute tension », « Filmer l’histoire », « Les comédiens », « Négation et révélations » - Module sur la restauration + 1 livre de témoignages sur l’histoire du film

When is out in the States?

and behind a VERY strange name is this beauty that looks German Chunchuna Villafañe

Just a quick question that, perhaps, someone here has an answer to.

I really wanted to pick up Arrow's new blu-ray of City of the Dead. I have a multi-region player, and this clearly is the best version of the film available.

But.

I would prefer to purchase a Region A version, if possible. Now I know VCI has their blur-ray, but it has been ripped by most as being inferior, even, to their own earlier DVD of the film (which I own, and am quite satisfied with for now).

Since Cohen shared the restoration with Arrow, does any think a Region A disc from them is possible? They are quite behind on their releases. Still no sign of THE DAY THE EARTH CAUGHT FIRE, and that's months and months late, so I'm not hopeful.

Cohen has said on Facebook that both titles will be released in the U.S. at some point, but offered no idea of what sort of timeline we're looking at. They were especially vague about CITY OF THE DEAD; I think in that case they said it would come out here "eventually." So I share your frustration.

BR.com's forums say Cohen confirmed that a UK label will be doing versions of Howard's End that fix some of the problems on that release - question becomes whether or not it's Arrow or MoC, right?

(If there were more than just the two ready restorations - Howard's End and Maurice - I'd totally bet on it being Arrow as an Academy box, but I could kind of just as easily imagine it just being two attached MoC releases)

I understand "Chunchuna" is a nickname. Her real name is Elba.

Couldn't Cohen just do a proper release of the Brownlow documentary on Keaton, A HARD ACT TO FOLLOW?

Does that even exist in HD form? As a mid-80s British TV documentary, the master may well be SD PAL.

It will be the BFI.
And it seems the Cohen replacement discs with the proper AR suffers from an incorrect color range encode...

Right, I believe the article should have specified that Cohen owns all but two of Keaton's silent films which would be the ones quoted above. These two were produced through MGM and are now owned by Turner/Warner Brothers (although a licensing to Criterion seems likely). I don't know if Cohen has acquired any of Keaton's sound films, most of which were produced through MGM, Columbia, and the poverty-row Educational Pictures, with the occasional outlier like the French-produced Le Roi des Champs-Élysées, but I doubt it. That said, the company could certainly license clips from the later work to flesh out the documentary.

what do you mean exactly?
By the way, looking at the initial screenshots I wasn't very happy with the general encoding either.
I hope BFI does it better.
