Is it likely that Twilight Time will release Take the Money and Run or will that be the first Woody Criterion?

That's an ABC Pictures title, so it's either with Kino or Criterion.

Fox has truly given up if they relinquished a R&H musical

Kinda figured that Criterion had The Crimson Kimono (and Underworld USA.) Hopefully the good folks at Indicator have it/them, so I can avoid having to buy them from TT.

Good point. It is remarkable how consistently awful their covers are, though. Has there ever been a good one?

Some of the ones based on poster art (e.g. The Driver, Bound for Glory) are goodish I guess.

Twilight Time always manage to screw up the design on covers that use the original poster. Indicator does it so elegantly with perfect font placement, but Twilight Time feels sloppy. And the worst of their covers look like those old airbrushed, Turner VHS covers from their old RKO and MGM catalog. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

Yep.

Though I did actually like TT's cover for Bell, Book and Candle:

That title font and color scheme is basically a Newsweek cover from back in the day. It just needs a tagline, something like "Generation Samurai: What can it mean when our children and their video games and shows idolize ruthless warriors of a bygone age?"
