***************Original post from 5-21-07:
Fox had nothing to do with this deal; MGM struck it a couple years ago as part of the deal to get Criterion's RAGING BULL commentary. There are 3 or 4 other titles in the deal. I can't reveal what they are, but I will say they are NOT any of the Kubricks, any of the Wilders or anything Criterion released previously on DVD or laser, with one exception.
Alright, Jameson. Who are you, and what do you know? Come on, cough it up.
Not telling? Very well. It's not called the Random Speculation thread for nothing...You said that one of the titles was previously released by Criterion on laserdisc or DVD. I'm assuming that Salo
has been licensed from someone other than United Artists since Criterion wasn't working with MGM when they released it the first time. I'm also assuming that they wouldn't bother with any of the Woody Allen titles now since he won't contribute to (or approve) any supplements and they can't really offer anything beyond the MGM discs. Supposedly Jarmusch owns his previous MGM films now, so let's rule those out. My money's on Burn!
or Carnal Knowlege
. If Criterion doesn't have Paramount's One-Eyed Jacks
would make a fine home for Meet Marlon Brando
As for the new-to-Criterion titles, I suppose some of MGM's Truffaut titles are possibilities, and I will swoon like a schoolgirl if Criterion has nabbed Sweet Smell of Success
Just nod knowingly if I've guessed anything right.
