Beaver for The Hallelujah Trail; it looks terrible and may be an upscaled SD master

Maybe they came with whatever older master they're using?

This really does look bad. Thankfully it's the Hallelujah Trail, so nothing of value was lost

Olive will be handling the US release of Boorman's Hope and Glory, which Sony unexpectedly put out in the UK themselves as a barebones disc for its anniversary last year. It doesn't look like it'll be an Olive signature edition, which is a shame.

I was hoping that Criterion or Shout Factory would put this out, as both would do a great job in terms of supplemental features. Since Olive will release it, I'll take a wait-and-see approach before making a commitment on upgrading my MGM DVD.

Does anyone have advice regarding Godards Numero Deux ? Think this will ever see a Blu-ray release with some bonus materials? Or should I pick up the Olive DVD and just be thankful for that?

I say go for it. I don't see this getting upgraded anytime soon (though an HD MP4 is available on https://www.lacinetek.com/fr/tous-les-f ... x-vod.html for people in righter territories than me, but maybe it's amazing/maybe it's just an upscale). I don't see a blu-ray in any territory. Worldwide the DVDs look mostly out of print.

It's also from his least visually interesting era: he's experimenting with video & multiple monitors, but Comment Ca Va? is on Blu and it doesn't look amazing because of the filmstocks & how it's shot.

Of course, if you buy it then it will be out on Blu in a week. Thanks in advance!

Something hinky is going on with Amazon and Olive. Some of Olive's releases are getting removed by Amazon for intellectual property violations...

This had happened previously with Force of Evil and I just received notification of the same about Secret Beyond the Door and the original release of Macbeth.

I guess it’s a good sign the Signature Line is still alive. Although I’m still waiting for an inevitable Invasion of the Body Snatchers Signature release.
