Coming January 2nd!

The Bounty (1984) with optional English subtitles

• Audio commentary by director Roger Donaldson, producer Bernard Williams and production designer John Graysmark
• Audio commentary by historical consultant Stephens Walters
• 5.1 Surround and 2.0 Stereo Audio
• Theatrical Trailer

Color 132 Minutes 2.35:1 Rated PG
Screen legends Anthony Hopkins (The Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal) and Mel Gibson (The Road Warrior, Braveheart) lead a stellar cast that includes Sir Laurence Olivier (Rebecca), Daniel Day-Lewis (The Crucible), Edward Fox (The Day of the Jackal), Bernard Hill (Titanic) and Liam Neeson (The Grey) in this action-packed adventure bursting with sensational battles, raging storms and an intensity as powerful as the mighty sea itself. Bristling with commanding performances, blazing dialogue and superb action scenes, this spectacular movie is everything a high-adventure fan could want. Hopkins delivers a brilliant portrayal as William Bligh, a real-life sea captain who, in 1787, steered The Bounty on a 27,000-mile voyage into danger, chaos and madness. After 31 days of battling severe sea squalls and Bligh's ever-increasing cruelty, the weary crew is relieved to finally land on a remote island. But soon their tyrannical captain wants to sail again, and the desperate men turn to first mate Fletcher Christian (Gibson) to help them take the ship back... or die trying. Directed by Roger Donaldson (Cadillac Man) with a screenplay by Robert Bolt (Lawrence of Arabia), based on a novel by Richard Hough (Captain Bligh and Mr. Christian).

The Scarlet Letter (1995) with optional English subtitles

• Audio Commentary by director Roland Joffé
• 5.1 Surround and 2.0 Stereo Audio
• Theatrical Trailer

Color 135 Minutes 2.35:1 Rated R
An erotic tale of forbidden love! Sexy Demi Moore (Disclosure, Indecent Proposal) heats up this powerfully sensual story of illicit love. In a time when adultery is punishable by death, Hester Prynne (Moore) becomes involved in a risky and scandalous affair with her town's handsome minister (Gary Oldman, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy). But when their secret passion results in a child, Hester is confronted with the town's overwhelming scorn... and is condemned to forever wear the scarlet letter "A" as a public brand of shame. A proactive retelling of the classic tale of forbidden love, The Scarlet Letter combines a sizzling story with exciting stars and delivers must-see entertainment. Directed by Roland Joffé (The Mission, The Killing Fields) with a screenplay by Douglas Day Stewart (An Officer and a Gentleman), based on a novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne (The House of the Seven Gables). The stellar cast includes Robert Duvall (True Confessions), Joan Plowright (Enchanted April), Edward Hardwicke (The Return of Sherlock Holmes) and Robert Prosky (The Chamber).

Washington Square (1997) with optional English subtitles

• Audio Commentary by director Agnieszka Holland
• Theatrical Trailer

Color 115 Minutes 1.85:1 Rated PG
She must choose between her father’s fortune and the man she loves! Riveting performances from an all-star cast highlight this passionate tale of a young heiress who must choose between love or money. Jennifer Jason Leigh (Rush, Heart of Midnight, A Thousand Acres) is Catherine, a lonely young woman in search of happiness... until she is swept off her feet by the handsome Morris Townsend (Ben Chaplin, Feast of July). Suspicious of the young man's true intentions, however, her controlling father (Albert Finney, Murder on the Orient Express) threatens to disown Catherine if she follows her heart and marries against his wishes. Directed by Agnieszka Holland (Europa Europa, The Secret Garden) with a screenplay by Carol Doyle (Veronica Guerin), based on a novel by Henry James (The Heiress). Maggie Smith (The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie), Judith Ivey (Hello Again), Jennifer Garner (13 Going on 30) and Peter Maloney (The Thing) co-star in this timeless story both powerful and entertaining.

Coming January 2nd on Blu-ray!

The Appaloosa (1966) with optional English subtitles
• Audio Commentary by Lee Pfeiffer, Publisher of Cinema Retro Magazine with Film Historian Paul Scrabo
• Reversible Art
• Theatrical Trailer


(1966) Color 98 Minutes 2.35:1 Not Rated
Southwest to Sonora rode the lustful, the lawless… living on the edge of violence! Screen icon Marlon Brando (The Missouri Breaks, On the Waterfront) stars in a tale of vengeance against a Mexican bandito and his gang of pistoleros. Matt Fletcher (Brando) has killed many men and sinned against many women. Vowing to give up his sordid past, he returns to his sleepy hometown on the Mexican border with a magnificent Appaloosa stallion. His hopes to start a horse ranch take a deadly turn when the Appaloosa is stolen by the sadistic bandit Chuy (John Saxon, Enter the Dragon, Queen of Blood), who controls the land with his bloodthirsty gang. Seeking revenge, Fletcher disguises himself as a Mexican and trails the gang back to their village. Barely escaping death, he flees with not only his horse, but also Chuy’s beautiful lover, Trini (Anjanette Comer, The Baby, Guns for San Sebastian). When the relentless Chuy stalks Fletcher across the desert into the snow-capped mountains in a final showdown, only one man will leave with the woman, the Appaloosa… and his life. Directed by Sidney J. Furie (The Ipcress File, The Taking of Beverly Hills) with a screenplay by James Bridges (The China Syndrome) and Roland Kibbee (The Midnight Man), based on a novel by Robert MacLeod (100 Rifles). Beautifully shot in Scope by Russell Metty (Spartacus) and co-starring Emilio Fernández (The Wild Bunch) and Frank Silvera (Valdez Is Coming).

Tell Them Willie Boys Is Here (1969) with optional English subtitles

• Audio Commentary by Actor/Filmmaker Pat Healy and Film Historian Jim Healy
• Reversible Art
• Theatrical Trailer


Color 98 Minutes 2.35:1 Rated PG
Tell Them Willie Boy Is Here is a modern western classic based on the true story of a Pauite Indian named Willie Boy (Robert Blake, Busting, In Cold Blood) and his bride Lola (Katharine Ross, The Graduate, The Stepford Wives), who become the objects of the last great western manhunt after Willie Boy kills Lola’s father in a “marriage by capture.” The manhunt, led by Sheriff Christopher Cooper (Robert Redford, Legal Eagles, The Sting), turns into a media circus when President Taft comes to visit the area and a mishap becomes twisted by the newspapers of the day. Released in 1969, Tell Them Willie Boy Is Here was a triumph for Redford and was called by Time Magazine, “A subtle, intense document of racial persecution that stands as one of the finest films of the year.” Written and directed by formerly blacklisted Abraham Polonsky (Force of Evil) and featuring stunning on-location cinematography by the great Conrad Hall (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid). The wonderful cast includes Susan Clark (Valdez Is Coming), Barry Sullivan (Planet of the Vampires), John Vernon (The Outlaw Josey Wales) and Charles McGraw (The Narrow Margin).

What Ever Happened to Aunt Alice? (1969) with optional English subtitles

• BRAND NEW HD MASTER FROM A 4K SCAN OF THE ORIGINAL CAMERA NEGATIVE
• Audio Commentary by Film Historian Richard Harland Smith
• Theatrical Trailer


Color 101 Minutes 1.85:1 Rated PG
Oscar winners Geraldine Page (The Trip to Bountiful, Sweet Bird of Youth) and Ruth Gordon (Harold and Maude, Rosemary’s Baby) sharpen their claws on each other in this chilling thriller about a lost fortune, a mad heiress and a housekeeper hell-bent on digging up the truth. Mrs. Marrable (Page) is a society matron who's had some shocking news: her late husband left her only a stamp collection. Determined to maintain her extravagant lifestyle, she takes advantage of an unlikely new source of income—her housekeepers, by robbing them not only of their life savings, but also their lives. The turnover rate for help speeds faster than a revolving door... until Mrs. Marrable's latest hire, Mrs. Dimmock (Gordon), develops a drive to unearth the terrible secret buried in the front yard. Directed Lee H. Katzin (Le Mans) and co-starring Rosemary Forsyth (How Do I Love Thee?). Produced by Robert Aldrich (The Grissom Gang).

Coming January 15th on DVD and Blu-ray!

The Pink Panther Cartoon Collection Vol. 4 (1971-1975)
• 22 shorts in chronological order (63-84) - All with original audio (no laugh tracks)
• Audio commentaries for 12 selected shorts, by author Mark Arnold, historian Jerry Beck, filmmaker Greg Ford and cartoon writer William Hohauser
• Pink Patter with Art Leonardi (14:53)
• Reversible Blu-ray Art


Color 138 Minutes 1.33:1 Not Rated
Having established himself as a bone fide TV star in 1969-70, the Pink Panther returns to the fine art of making theatrical shorts in 1971. Helping the Panther recapture his silver-screen luster are established directors Hawley Pratt (A FLY IN THE PINK), Gerry Chiniquy (SALMON PINK, PINK AYE), and Art Davis (PINK TUBA-DORE). Joining their ranks are veteran Warners helmer Robert McKimson (PINK DA VINCI) and artful behind-the-scenes DePatie-Freleng multi-tasker Art Leonardi (PINK PLASMA, PINK CAMPAIGN). Still in touch with the Temper of the Times, the Panther amusingly tackles a few then-trending 1970s topics such as environmentalism and animal-rights advocacy.

We're very sad to be losing a great partner in FilmStruck and hope the void it leaves will be filled, but as this ScreenCrush article notes, when it comes to the classics "your best bet is still the same uncool choice it’s been for the last 20 years: Discs."

Long Live Physical Media!

Does anyone know what's happening with Kino's blu-ray of Charly?
It was originally due for summer release, but there haven't been any

Not having to go to Ain't It Cool News to get basic details like the name of the film makes things easier. Just a friendly suggestion.

I love SWEET CHARITY, and I hope Kino doesn't get rid of the film's original 4.0 surround sound mix. A 5.1 mix would be a nice addition, so long as the disc also has the original soundtrack, as it was intended to be heard in theaters. The 4.0 was available on the DVD release, and it's a great historical document.

Will these be released on Blu-ray at some point? I already purchased The Hitch-Hiker Blu from five years back (and every other release of the film, I think) but would love to see the new 4K restoration.
