I would also like to see The Mystery of Oberwald released on DVD at the very least.

As far as I'm aware, there are still no plans to put out any foreign-language titles under the Indicator brand, and they abandoned DVD a year ago (and never released anything exclusively on DVD). Zabriskie Point is the only plausible Antonioni title aside from the already-released The Passenger, and that's with Warner Bros and so inaccessible for now.

So you'd be better off lobbying Eureka, Arrow or the BFI.

Is there any say as to whether Marie Antoinette is a title that Indicator would consider?

It seems a tad unlikely.

Out of curiosity, I thought I'd look at what Indicator has released on a decade-by-decade basis:

1900s - 0
1910s - 0
1920s - 0
1930s - 2
1940s - 4
1950s - 21
1960s - 32
1970s - 26
1980s - 8
1990s - 3
2000s - 1
2010s - 0

Obviously, never say never, and there'll always be occasional surprises (I imagine nobody saw Born of Fire coming), but there's a pretty clear pattern here.

(The one post-millennium title was Ghosts of Mars, snapped up when the success of Christine suggested that more John Carpenter titles might be a good idea.)

Is there any love for Frankenheimer at Indicator?... thinking specifically of The Fixer with Alan Bates and Dirk Bogarde from 1968 which seems to tick a few Indicator-ish boxes. However I can never get my head round who has what in-roads with whom on the distribution stakes so this may already be ruled out being I think MGM.

It's actually with Warner, so that particular ball is firmly in their court.

(Thanks to assorted catalogue acquisitions over the years, we're currently in the bizarre situation whereby films actually made by MGM are with Warner Bros, whereas MGM reps companies like United Artists, Cannon, AIP, etc. This is why Zabriskie Point ended up with Warner Bros, and The Passenger would be with them too if Jack Nicholson hadn't intervened by buying up all the rights and then appointing Sony as worldwide distributor.)

The 1970 Frankenheimer film I Walk The Line has recently been on Talking Pictures TV and that is a Columbia title.

The Last Movie is going to be shown at the London Film Festival in October. If Indicator still has a deal with Universal then would that be a viable future title? Similarly if Can Heironymus Merkin... were to be available, would that be more of an Indicator thing or more of a Flipside thing?

The Last Movie is pretty much confirmed coming from Indicator. They've been liking and retweeting stuff about it for months. When asked if their actions on Twitter meant anything, they said something along the lines of, "We're not doing it accidentally."

So The Last Movie is definitely coming. I would guess it will be Region B only though since Arbelos has the rights in Region A.

I Walk the Line is a possibility?

Frankenheimer was a superb Director of low key drama. Gypsy Moths is even better.

Will be interesting to see which version of The Last Movie makes it to market first. Nice to have choice, in any case.

I really want The Last Movie. Will probably wait for the Indicator.

Arbelos have already announced theirs for November 13th, whereas Indicator’s will be December at the earliest now.

There’s a chance Indicator’s will include The American Dreamer as it doesn’t already have a disc release in the UK.

The photo is of Judy Geeson. Any guesses as to what film this could be?

The Boy Who Turned Yellow - I suspect they succeeded in licensing it as an extra for Age of Consent. Will please a lot of people! :)

I look forward to seeing that yellow glow in HD. It's a film that I imagine would benefit from some contextualising extras of its own, though I feel it would probably be too cheeky of me to suggest that Indicator start producing extras for their extras!

Next month's tease confirmed as California Split (already spotted via the BBFC site). I suppose The Last Movie will be another January release too (or February/March).

Other upcoming titles already leaked include The Reckless Moment, Birdy, Immaculate Conception and Breakout. 2019 is off to a good start!

The actresses in question are from 13 Frightened Girls (or The Candy Web as it was still called at the time), so presumably it's just to tie in with the William Castle releases. The full issue is up on Google Books.
