Amazon has leaked that Flying Leathernecks (1951) is being released by WAC 9/15
Nicholas Ray is probably my favorite director of the studio era, but there's no redeeming this picture. John Wayne is the most un-Ray actor, trained not for psychodramas, but for roles of idealized men, something Ray could have less interest in. The only moment that stood out to me was brief portions of documentary footage that chooses to use some surprisingly bloody imagery. Ranks with Hot Blood as one of Ray's worst.

Maybe it has to do with the director or the Our Gang presence in the film?

The Little Rascals completists and Stevens auteurists are almost as rabid as the Nolan/steelbook intersection.

Thank God, the sorely needed 4K restoration of General Spanky finally has some legs to stand on.

HD versions of Fleischer Popeyes and a Buddy cartoon—interesting.

According to a couple of posters on Bluray.com, Feltenstein said on a podcast that they are interested in releasing A Night at the Opera instead of licensing it to Criterion. If that's the case what the hell are they waiting for...

got a gift certificate and was thinking of grabbing some of the theatrical animation, like the Popeyes, but I see wikipedia no longer hosts a list of blurays on Warner Archive. Anyone know off hand what theatrical animation blu rays WBArchives has put out?

I think these are all of them:

Popeye The 1940s Vol 1-3
Tex Avery Screwball Classics Vol 1
Tom and Jerry Golden Collection Vol 1 (reissue/reprinting from previously wide-release title)
The Flight of the Dragons
Batman: Mask of the Phantasm

There are also theatrical animated shorts included as bonus features on some titles (usually just things that had them as DVD era extras/Warner Night at the Movies extras), and I think most are proper HD transfers.

Worth noting that Batman: Mask of the Phantasm also comes in the WHV Batman: The Animated Series - Complete Series release. I imagine the consumer that wants the film is 99% overlapped with someone that wants the series.

Just for future reference, Blu-ray.com maintains a list of all WAC blu-ray titles.

They have BD lists for most of the major boutique labels. Just google the company's name and "blu-ray.com."

Ha, knew holding out on the German Blu-ray of Sgt York was the way to go! Not surprised at Drop Dead Gorgeous, it has a fervent fanbase even though I thought it was completely laugh-free, but there's definitely an audience for it

I stand by my decision of paying $25 for the DVD a few months ago for the Hawks project

The only sad part is that since the DVD I have came from the Gary Cooper set, getting rid of a slimcase doesn't really clear up any space
