An Arrow special edition of Shaft's Big Score!
I didn't mean having the word "score" in the title

It's obviously Ritorno della Arpeggio with Lee Van Clef

I'm really rusty on my keys, but I think the first is a minor scale and the others are majors.
They've been releasing a lot of Universal titles recently. Billy Wilder's The Major and the Minor?

It's an okay film by an established auteur so I'm sure they're all over it

One of the Facebook comments was hoping/pleading for Lisztomania. Isn't that with the BFI?

Lisztomania is, as far as I can make out, with Warner Bros., but it has been released in the UK by an outfit called Digital Classics and more recently (last July) by RRaW - Rick Wakeman's own distribution label.

The Digital Classics DVD is wretched, with striations across the x axis, as if it was photographed off a CTV. I'm pretty sure the image is stretched as well. It's best feature is the KR commentary, which is delightful.

Yeah wouldn’t be surprised if it is a UK release of The Major and the Minor

Indeed I see that on Amazon. DARK CITY is the Charlton Heston led film.

The Major and the Minor is also getting a US and Can release. (the lone Academy title for those markets)

Kim Newman's site mentions that he contributed to an Arrow Blu-ray of Invisible Man Appears/The Invisible Man vs the Human Fly.

A film that is visible to the eye

Or something by Fulci I guess

My guess would be Umberto Lenzi's Eyeball, since it hasn't gotten a home video release yet, if I remember correctly.

Eyeball is out in the UK from 88 Films, so it’s probably not that one.

They are doing Who Saw Her Die. So it may be that.

It might be as literal as the Pang Brothers' The Eye, especially considering they've been snapping up ex-Tartan title left, right and centre (e.g. The Ring Collection, Oldboy, upcoming Jodorowsky set).

It won't be any of those three.

- The Tree of Life was already licensed by Fox to Sony/Criterion UK just last year
- 2001: A Space Odyssey is a Warner Bros property and therefore would be very difficult to license, not to mention it recently got released via HMV's exclusive 'Premium Collection' (and I bet you WB would say no to sub-licensing any Kubrick to anyone with the exception of Criterion)
- Eyes Without a Face was released by BFI just a few years ago, in a very solid edition I might add (also R.I.P. Edith Scob, what a legacy)

interesting, and I hope so.

And, given the recent Don’t Look Now restoration, this would be timely. As people often compare Who Saw Her Die to DLN.
