All being well this new 4K might bring the revelation for many ivewers that this is really major Hitchcock. I even prefer it to Rope.

March 9 update of upcoming titles from Kino Lorber Insider quietly added Gone to Earth / The Wild Heart. I wonder if it means both versions will be included. Waiting for his response about this...

They did seem to learn their lesson and announced Adventures of Tom Sawyer will contain both the original and 50s re-edit

The only current reference I can find on the forthcoming Kino release is the Amazon listing under the title The Wild Heart, set for a June 12, 2018 release date, and noting that it is the US edit only.

Could you provide a pointer to an updated listing from Kino that indicates both titles and suggests that both versions might be present? Thanks.

Beaver for The Lion In Winter; it looks extremely similar (ie, not good) to the French BD of which tenia posted caps, though the color grading is a little different.

2017 French BD cap vs 2018 Kino BD cap

Why do some movies with the process (Johnny Guitar, for instance) look relatively normal, while others, like this one, have the desaturated look to them?

Flowers for Algernon is one of the texts we cover in 8th grade language arts. We show Charly every year. Needless to say, it hasn't aged well at all.

That film adaptation in particular or the story in general?

Cliff Robertson, whose project Charly essentially was (he even enlisted his old live-TV pal Robert Nelson to direct it) was inspired to make the film after starring in a TV adaptation of the same story for The U.S. Steel Hour, entitled "The Two Worlds of Charlie Gordon"... which coincidentally was just put online by the UCLA Film & Television Archive.

Geez, that had already aged badly when my eighth grade class watched it over 25 years ago.

Michael Mann always seems so open to doing commentaries, so I'm surprised not to see him here. I'm not too sure, but does he have mixed feelings about this film?

I wonder if they'll include his other television films though I suppose a commentary is already a hefty amount of extras for Kino.

Maybe, after The Keep fiasco, Kino doesn't want Michael Mann involved at all.

A Fistful of Dollars review from blu-ray.com.
Another movie mostly looking like a Ritrovata restoration, if anything else...

Wait, what fiasco? Was Kino on the cusp of releasing The Keep?
