By the way, what happened to Moe Lolstein, we haven't heard from him lately.

Two clues as part of the March '15 titles. New Years drawings aside, that leaves just Midnight Cowboy and Odd Man Out left without an official street date, correct?

I am now convinced that the supposed Midnight Cowboy clue was not for Midnight Cowboy at all.

Someone else parsed it, correctly I believe, as:

ILL SORE POSSUM
(Feverish, bandaged tail, possum not rat) for Il Sorpasso

I can't recall, is there a singular Newsletter clue before the New Years Wacky Drawing?

The clue appeared in the November 2013 newsletter, and Il Sorpasso was announced in January 2014. Typically there is a three month lag between a clue and the announcement. I'm sorry, but that clue was definitely not for Midnght Cowboy.

I'm not quite sure you're as sorry as you say you are.

I don't know why I'm dignifying this absurdity with a response but it is 100% guaranteed Midnight Cowboy, your ludicrous phonetics notwithstanding

Yes, last year it was Ace in the Hole. (Confirmed by first page of this thread).

Edit: I can't capitalize or bold worth shit.

I don't think it's Limelight, Charlie Chaplin doesn't have a phantom page.

It is Green Lantern starring Ryan Reynolds, part of the Warner Bros deal.

Ludicrous phonetics meant it took us several pages to figure out lean cow herd.

If it is ill sore possum it would have hit us square in the forums blindspot

The Power of Love, a previously lost film from 1922 that was a precursor to the 3D films of the 1950s and today, will be released through the Criterion Collection.

Seeing as Thomas "Henry" Edison invented the light bulb, this is a rare triple clue for Limelight, Green Lantern and a reissue of Henry Lime's The Third Man.
