It's a bit disappointing that they've got another two dozen 30s films from Universal and yet no Edward L. Cahn films.

Kino did confirm to me that they've got at least one James Whale though, so that's something.

Was it known around here that Peter Ibbetson is being released on August 10? Because I just found this today and hadn't seen it mentioned on these boards.

KL Insider confirmed another 116 titles licensed from Universal. Blu-ray only.

3 TV movies, 2 4KUHD titles (one from 2000s, one from 2010s), no silents or TV shows. Some pre-code titles, apparently lots of film noir titles.
I wonder if the 2 UHDs are the other two Riddick movies - The Chronicles of Riddick (2004) and Riddick (2013)?

The January Man (1989) (BD) has been re-added to the website, so some copies must have been uncovered after it sold out.

Shame about Manhandled, probably a good cue to pick up the remaining Dwans just in case

Kino's advertising a summer sale, and going by an order I placed very recently, a lot of the sale prices remain the same, but alas their Blu-ray of A Sunday in the Country can now be had for $10 and I bought it for $18.

Rule of thumb: Never, ever pay more than $12 for a KL title, just wait

Target B2G1s and DD 15% off sales are also a good time to pick up Kino titles

But they need our money. How else will they fund their replacement disc programs?

The current sale has a bunch of Godard titles cheap, including (what are not advertised as, but which surely are) Cohen releases going for much less than Cohens typically go for. I also noticed that the Cohen blu of Under the Sun of Satan is on sale there- for a lot more than the others (~$25) but that’s significantly less than it’s been marked at by third party sellers for the last year or so. I just assumed it was OOP and doomed to be a greater splurge

Per their social media accounts, they will release two Francesco Rosi films on September 28th: Lucky Luciano and Illustrious Corpses.

Coming to Blu-ray September 28th from Kino Classics and Universal Pictures!

13 Washington Square (1928)
Directed by Melville W. Brown
Starring Jean Hersholt, Alice Joyce and Zasu Pitts

Presented in a 4K restoration from Universal Pictures, 13 Washington Square is a romantic comedy in which a meddling aristocratic mother tries to stop her son from eloping with a grocer’s daughter. So Mrs. De Peyster (Alice Joyce, Stella Dallas) dons a working class disguise and goes on a mission with her maid (an uproarious Zasu Pitts, Ruggles of Red Gap) to track down the lovers and block their illicit vows. But instead she crosses paths with a charismatic thief named Pyecroft (Jean Hersholt, Heidi) who has plans to rob De Peyster’s home. All of them end up at her house on 13 Washington Square where their lies hilariously come to light.

Special features:
*Audio commentary by film historian Nora Fiore
*Music by Tom Howe

I'm guessing we'll be seeing that in Early Universal Volume 2 or more, courtesy of Eureka.

Coming to Blu-ray September 28th from Kino Classics and Universal Pictures!

The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923)
Directed by Wallace Worsley
Starring Lon Chaney

The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923) is a million-dollar super-production of Victor Hugo’s famous novel, presented in a 4K restoration by Universal Pictures. This epic adaptation recreated the Paris of 1482 complete with its own Notre Dame, and it established Lon Chaney as a monstrously sympathetic superstar. Chaney stars as Quasimodo, the mocked and vilified bell-ringer of Notre Dame who selflessly protects the star-crossed street performer Esmerelda (Patsy Ruth Miller), who is in an ill-fated love affair with the dashing Captain Phoebus (Norman Kerry). Chaney created the legendary makeup himself, and gave a performance of enormous sensitivity and pathos, launching him into Hollywood immortality.

Special Features:
*Audio commentary by film critic Farran Smith Nehme
*Booklet essay by film historian Michael A. Blake
*"Life in Hollywood" newsreel
*Lon Chaney home movie footage
*Music by Nora Kroll-Rosenbaum & Laura Karpman
*Slideshow of production correspondence
*Slideshow of production stills
