The 5 films from 1920s have to include some Hitchcocks.

I was posting that just as FrauBlucher was. There's a good chance that all five are the Hitchcock films StudioCanal (I think) has rights to: Blackmail, The Farmer's Wife, The Ring, The Manxman, Champagne.

If that’s the case I wonder if they’d do a boxset.

I hope they don't do a boxset. Of those titles, only The Ring and Blackmail are must see/own in my opinion and would prefer not to deal with a box for price and space reasons.

I'd gladly purchase a special Blu-Ray release containing both versions of BLACKMAIL -- a total no-brainer, to be bought immediately upon announcement. The rest, not so much.

Has the Studio Classics line does any box sets? Granted, the Hitchcocks might be released under the main Kino Lorber label in a box, but I expect they'll try to maximize profit with individual releases. Or maybe the non-Blackmail films will get paired as double features.

I think The Manxman is Hitchcock's best silent after Lodger and Blackmail, with The Ring after that, so they're worth picking up. Farmer's Wife is mostly a shrug and Champagne has two really good ideas and a lot of Betty Balfour.

I wonder if some of the 30s films are also early Hitchcocks. Murder, The Skin Game, and Rich and Strange were released in that Lionsgate set via StudioCanal, and I think Juno and the Paycock should also be with them. Of course, the big question there is if there are decent restorations available, whereas the silent should be using those recent BFI versions.

They've done sets of cartoons and TV seasons and one repackaging of five early Noir releases, but otherwise no. I suspect every Hitchcock they release will have a commentary, as this label is more inclined than most to commission them, and given there is no shortage of scholars willing to talk about Hitchcock, these will be worthwhile releases

After posting on Instagram about a year ago that Criterion was working on a new restoration, director Michael Steinberg just posted that he is preparing BODIES, REST, AND MOTION for an upcoming Kino blu-ray and theatrical re-release. Don’t know if this means Kino is working with WB, or, more likely considering that a theatrical release is involved, the rights to the film have reverted back to Steinberg/the film’s producers.

Nice looking set, but boo lossy audio. Any word on BFI porting / optimizing this as they did with African American pioneers?

Bloody Disgusting named the KLSC release of Deep Rising as one of the year's 10 best Blu-rays for horror fans.

"Kino Lorber did a stunning job with this release and did not skimp on the bonus content. There are interviews with most of the cast, a commentary with Sommers and some behind-the-scenes looks at the special effects. It’s all very rad."

Coming February 26th!
First Time on DVD and Blu-ray!

The Midnight Man (1974) with optional English subtitles
• NEW Audio Commentary by Films Historians Howard S. Berger and Nathaniel Thompson
• Theatrical Trailer

Color 117 Minutes 1.85:1 Rated R
Screen legend Burt Lancaster (The Train, Elmer Gantry) stars as Jim Slade, a former Chicago policeman who has just been released from prison for shooting his wife’s lover. He’s offered and takes a job as a campus night watchman at Jordon College. When a coed, the daughter of a prominent senator, is murdered and the local sheriff (Harris Yulin, Scarface) tries to pin the crime on a creepy night janitor (Charles Tyner, The Longest Yard), Slade decides to start his own unauthorized investigation that takes the lid off the hornets’ nest. Lancaster and Roland Kibbee (Valdez Is Coming) co-wrote, co-produced and co-directed this top-notch murder mystery with an amazing cast that includes Susan Clark (Tell Them Willie Boy Is Here), Cameron Mitchell (Blood and Black Lace), Morgan Woodward (Cool Hand Luke), Robert Quarry (Madhouse), Ed Lauter (Breakheart Pass), Joan Lorring (The Verdict) and Catherine Bach (Daisy Duke of TV’s The Dukes of Hazzard). The second and final film directed by Lancaster (The Kentuckian).

The Rover (1967)
• BRAND NEW 2K MASTER
• AUDIO COMMENTARY BY FILM HISTORIANS LEE GAMBIN AND DR. ELOISE ROSS
• KLSC TRAILERS

Color 97 Minutes 1.66:1 Not Rated
After a wide-ranging life of piracy and adventure, Peyrol (Anthony Quinn, Zorba the Greek) comes ashore in the port of Toulon during the bloody aftermath of the French Revolution to deliver a message to the Port Commander. Wanted by authorities in nearly every port in the European world, Peyrol barely escapes arrest and flees to an isolated spot near the coast. While searching for a way to return to the open sea, he rescues a deranged girl, Arlette (Rosanna Schiaffino, Arrivederci, Baby!) from a mob of revolutionary “blood-drinkers.” The sweet girl asks Peyrol to stay at her house, where she lives with her Aunt Caterina (Rita Hayworth, Gilda). Peyrol is surprised to find that a French naval officer, Real (Richard Johnson, The Haunting), has also taken a room at the house and it’s not long before Real discovers that Peyrol is wanted by the police. Torn by his growing love of Arlette and his duties to the counter-revolutionaries, Peyrol must choose between his desires and the needs of an entire country. Great direction by Terence Young (Dr. No) with a memorable score by legendary composer Ennio Morricone (The Good, the Bad and the Ugly) and co-starring Anthony Dawson (Death Rides a Horse), from a novel by Joseph Conrad (Lord Jim).

Desert Fury (1947) with optional English subtitles
• NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historian Imogen Sara Smith
• Theatrical Trailer

Color 96 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
Lewis Allen (A Bullet for Joey, The Uninvited) directed this classic film noir in Technicolor, starring Lizabeth Scott (Pitfall), Burt Lancaster (I Walk Alone), John Hodiak (Lifeboat), Mary Astor (The Maltese Falcon) and Wendell Corey (Harriet Craig). Eddie Bendix (Hodiak) and his henchman, Johnny Ryan (Corey), two gangsters in the gambling trade, return to a small desert town outside of Reno. Years ago, Eddie had left town under suspicion of murdering his wife and after running into some trouble in Las Vegas, Eddie now hopes to get involved with the local gambling house whose proprietor is his ex-flame Fritzi Haller (Astor). To complicate matters, Eddie falls for Fritzi’s daughter (Scott), who used to be involved with the local lawman Tom Hanson (Lancaster), who’s still in love with her. Desert Fury was adapted for the screen by filmmaker Robert Rossen (The Strange Love of Martha Ivers) from the far racier and more explicit novel by Ramona Stewart (The Possession of Joel Delaney).

A Bill of Divorcement (1940) aka Never to Love
• BRAND NEW 2K MASTER!
• KLSC Trailers

B&W 74 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
After fifteen years in a mental asylum, Hilary Fairfield (Adolphe Menjou, The Front Page) has suddenly regained his sanity, escaped from the institution and come home. But a few things have changed in his absence. For one, his strong-willed daughter Sydney (Maureen O’Hara, Lisbon) has grown up and is planning to marry. For another, his wife (Fay Bainter, The Children’s Hour) has divorced him and is planning to re-marry. It’s enough to drive a man crazy – or a woman, for that matter. Especially when Sydney learns it wasn’t “shell shock” that send her father to the asylum, but family madness – and now she’s sure she’s inherited it. Brilliantly helmed by director John Farrow (The Big Clock) and co-starring Herbert Marshall (The Letter), May Whitty (The Lady Vanishes) and C. Aubrey Smith (The Hurricane). This 1940 film was a remake of the 1932 film with the same title, directed by George Cukor and starring John Barrymore and Katharine Hepburn in her film debut.

David O. Selznick (Duel in the Sun) produced this remake of his classic 1932 film.
I don't think that's the case. Selznick was long gone from RKO by the time this adaptation was made and he was occupied with Rebecca.

You're definitely right. He produced the 1932 version, but not the remake.

I've already bought so many KLSC releases by now that it's very difficult to get to the $50 free shipping threshold. Standard (domestic) shipping is $8 for one Blu-ray, or $9 for two? That's more than I pay even for most orders from the UK.

I've had the same problem. I'm just planning on sitting out a few of these sales. At least we know they have them quite often during the year.
