I always wonder if Quintet will improve on later viewings. I remember it as such a dog, though. It would be interesting to see it again, though, just as you say.

Perversely perhaps, out of that great line up this is the one I'm most excited about.

Is that really a *new* restoration of Manhattan? If so, seems silly for Arrow to be using the old discs for their rerelease at the end of the year (good as they may be)...

A) Screenings of restorations for classic films frequently don't translate into new home video releases.

B) Arrow has no choice in the matter.

C) The old disc looks pretty much perfect anyway. Save your tears for Annie Hall.

Yeah, no, I'm well aware of all of that, but part of me still vainly hopes that given they are putting it out again anyway something could still happen despite contracts having already been signed.

The 2016 Reel Thing conference and restoration exhibition is currently underway in Los Angeles, and Grover Crisp was on hand to present a brand new restoration of John Huston's Beat the Devil, which not only looks gorgeous, but restores many scenes that were excised, thus making it more entertaining AND intelligible. Really hope Criterion puts out this one.

Agreed! I was unfamiliar with the cut that's apparently been circulating for decades, but found the version they screened last night hugely enjoyable. And it indeed looked incredible.

The TCM festival usually shows restored film prints, according to their website.

Restoration of a film does not automatically mean there will be a blu-ray release. But films controlled by Warner Bros. stand a good chance of eventual release through the Warner Archive DVD/Blu-ray programs. Broadcasts on HD cable channels is another possibility.

I included the link mainly because of the info about hard-to-see early 30s productions, prime candidates for Warner Archive releases
(see www.wbshop.com under the Warner Archive banner for regular release info).

Hope this helps. Sorry, I have no info other than what is given on the site.

Back in March I saw a beautiful 4K restoration of Carol Reed's Our Man in Havana at the Pacific Film Archive. According to BFI, the restoration was done by Sony-Universal's Grover Crisp. Given Criterion's relationship with Sony and their history with Carol Reed films, I'm guessing it will eventually see stateside release from Criterion. I'm just surprised there have been no rumors in that regard.

Abel Ferrara's Cat Chaser has not been restored. All that's left is a single VHS copy of the workprint. I do wonder if his original cut of Body Snatchers still exists, though.

Yes, strictly speaking that Cat Chaser link is off-topic, but the info was interesting, so I included it anyway.
On a similar note, James B. Harris talks about his cut of The Boiling Point, prepared for TV syndication, though he´s unsure if this cut has ever been shown:
http://www.filmcomment.com/interview-ja ... -part-two/
Harris also talks about the studio re-editing and re-scoring the film.

Major resto of La Roue underway, to be shown in part during Cinema Ritrovato 2017:

http://variety.com/2016/film/festivals/ ... 201886156/




J´Accuse (Gance, 1938) is now on Blu from Olive Films, restored by Gaumont.

Gaumont apparently used a post-1938 reissue print for their restoration.

Robert A. Harris discusses the reissue here:

https://www.hometheaterforum.com/commun ... ay.350041/

”We have some extra footage, and some original footage missing, but it serves the purpose, as the many important bits are generally intact. The downside of the re-issue is a happy ending, and the loss of Diaz rejoining his long-dead allies.”

On Dailymotion I found the 1938 version (now taken down due to "breach of use"), apparently taken from the Connoisseur Video VHS:

Here is the end, with Diaz burned at the stake, then rejoining the dead, a scene not on the Olive disc according to the DVD Savant review:
http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2cak7 ... 3_creation

The whole film is uploaded on Dailymotion, in three separate posts, the first post starts with the Connoisseur Video logo.




Harris apparently restored the 1938 version in 1991, through his company Film Preserve Ltd.

A scholarly article about the 1919 and 1938 versions, including mention of the burning:

https://kuscholarworks.ku.edu/bitstream ... sequence=2

Footnote 35 has info about the reissue version.

Häxan (1922)

Digitally restored in 2K by the Swedish Film Institute, premieres in the Films Institute's Cinematheque January 10th next year. The screening will have live musical accompaniment by Matti Bye. (source in Swedish)
Got nothing else on this right now, but they do good work so it should look great. See .

• Un Homme et une femme (A Man and a Woman) by Claude Lelouch (1966, 1h42, France)
Presented by Les Films 13. The film has been restored by Eclair laboratory in Vanves. It was scanned and color-graded from the original 35mm color and black and white negative with Claude Lelouch. It was digitally restored and finalized in 2K for the DCP. The sound was restored from the original mono magnetic 35mm.
Restoration and digitization with the support of the CNC.




I'm sorry, does anyone know what's the story behind tis restoration?
I thought the film had black and white parts as seen in this trailer too:


But in the restoration the B&W parts have either a teal blanket or a yellow blanket!!!
I don't suppose Eclair went that far as to start tealing and yellowing B&W films too, right??
:shock:

(i don't mention of course the rest of the film which is tealed too, but that is usual now with Eclair)

edit: ok, i found out about the yellowish, that some scenes were indeed sepia-toned. So, i guess this is accurate.
But what about the B&W turned to teal&white?

I'm not quite sure I follow your argument, but the film is well-known for its use of color filters as applied to black and white footage throughout

Oh, I see.
So the teal filter on Black and white was how it was originally. OK.
I didn't know how the film looked and seeing the trailer and reading here and there I always read about "black and white" and not any teal filters.
That's why I asked.
And combining with the fact that the color portions of the film are identical color wise to any film restored by Eclair/Ritrovata I thought maybe they went as far as to apply the filter in the B&W portions too.

Perhaps this is a little bit off-topic, but when does Film Foundation release their annual reports? They seem to have a lot of information on the restorations themselves, as well as schedules for screenings.
