I Walked With A Zombie is getting a German Blu-Ray release in April 2022 on what appears to be a single layer disc and a MPEG/AVC encode. Hopefully Feltenstein has told WAC to get on with it and release Zombie and Seventh Victim sooner than later.

On a recent podcast Feltenstein said 2022 will be the best year and early on they will have some great titles. It could be hyperbole but based off of the last several months of announcements maybe he is right on

Alienation *from* a sense of belongingness to dominant groups, or more concisely “thwarted belongingness” would be the clinical term taken directly from suicidal assessments. Also probably helpful to quote the post if you’re on the next page and asking for clarification

Queen Christina, Sea Hawk, Rise and Fall of Legs Diamond and Air Force plus the aforementioned Lewtons are my wanted still-to-happen upgrades.

Air Force
One of Hawks's greatest and severely underrated. I've also been waiting forever for it to hit blu.

The Sea Hawk came out a while ago on Blu-ray.

Oooh! That completely slipped past me. Thank you! I don't think they've done Captain Blood yet though?

Is Greed going to end up in the public domain soon?

They haven't yet. That one's high on my list too, along with a bunch of other Flynn titles.

I think Greed was entered into the public records for copyright purposes in 1925 so three years from now.

Greed entered the public domain in 2020 (release year + 96).

bluray.com.... Angels with Dirty Faces
Angels with Dirty Faces takes a soft left turn during its final stretch, pushing hard for Rocky's death-bed redemption as Jerry pleads with him to find God mere moments before execution. The reason? Those troubled kids, who still idolize the scrappy outlaw, might not follow in his wavering footsteps. It's a sappy swerve that, while not as jaw-droppingly awful as the one in San Francisco (also released during the Hays Code's infancy, just two years prior), still feels like further melodramatic mistreatment of Cagney's character. (And that angelic coda? Gag me with a spoon.) Even so, it's at least not too terribly unexpected and, as part of an otherwise magnetic film packed with fantastic one-liners, great action, and solid performances, one wrong turn obviously can't sink the ship. But had it been made, say, five years earlier, Angels with Dirty Faces would be an absolute classic of Hollywood's Golden Age.
This type of Code counterfactualism :roll:
