Thanks for the excellent news Cameron! Would be nice if Paramount releases these in a box set, as I'll be getting them all.

Let's hope 'The Quiet Man' is not too behind...

John Wayne Double Features in May

Paramount Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of three John Wayne Double Features for 23rd May 2006. They are…

Wake of the Red Witch/Night Riders (Double Feature)

Wake of the Red Witch - Captain Ralls (John Wayne) fights Dutch shipping magnate Mayrant Sidneye (Luther Adler) for the woman he loves, Angelique Desaix (Gail Russell), and for a fortune in gold aboard the Red Witch.

Night Riders - Hazleton (Walter Wills) forges a Spanish land grant and then gets card cheat Talbot (George Douglas) to pose as the owner Don Luis. When the court rules it authentic, they start to kick the ranchers off the land. The Three Mesquiteers (John Wayne, Ray Corrigan, Max Terhune) are included and fight back as the mysterious Night Riders. When Stony (John Wayne) meets Don Luis he remembers him as the card sharp and sets out to prove him a fake.

New Frontier (1935)/New Frontier (1939) (Double Feature)

New Frontier (1935) - In 1889 pioneers race ahead of the law to claim free land in Oklahoma, forming wide-open towns. In one such, citizens elect Milt Dawson (Sam Flint) to challenge the self-appointed rule of gambler Ace Holmes (Warner Richmond), only to have him shot in the back. But leading the next batch of settlers is Milt's quick-on-the-draw son John (John Wayne), who gets help from friendly outlaws.

New Frontier (1939) - When the New Hope Valley ranchers (the 3 Mesquiteers) learn their land has been condemned for construction of a new dam, they decide to fight. When they delay the construction, Proctor suggests they relocate in a desert valley that will be irrigated by a new pipeline. The dam is then completed but when the Mesquiteers (John Wayne, Ray Corrigan, Raymond Hatton) check on the site, they see there was no intention of building a pipeline.

Red River Range/Three Texas Steers (Double Feature)

Red River Range - The Cattlemen's Association has called in the Mesquiteers (John Wayne, Ray Corrigan, Max Terhune) to find cattle rustlers. They get Tex Riley (Kirby Grant) to pose as Stony (John Wayne) so Stony can arrive posing as a wanted outlaw. This gets Stony into the gang of rustlers and he alerts Tucson (Ray Corrigan) and Lullaby (Max Terhune) as to the next raid. But Hartley (Perry Ivins) is on hand and unknown to anyone is the rustler's boss and he joins the posse with a plan that will do away with the Mesquiteers.

Three Texas Steers - Nancy Evans (Carole Landis), lovely circus owner, has a ranch that she's never visited, but for sentimental reasons won't sell to Mike Abbott. Her partners, secretly in league with Abbott, sabotage the circus to force Nancy to sell the ranch; instead, she goes there to live. Will her neighbors, the Three Mesquiteers (John Wayne, Ray Corrigan, Max Terhune), be a match for the secret swindlers? And what's so valuable about that run-down ranch anyway?

Features are TBC.

Paramount Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of From John Wayne's Batjac Productions: The Suspense Collection for 6th June 2006. This gift set collection bundles together the once delayed but recently back on track (follow links for details) Plunder of the Sun (Special Collector’s Edition) and Track of the Cat (Special Collector’s Edition) alongside two barebones releases also due on 6th June 2006 - Man in the Vault and Ring of Fear (details for which follow)…

Presented in Anamorphic Widescreen with English Mono and optional English subtitles.

Ring of Fear - The famed Clyde Beatty Circus becomes a terrifying entertainment venue as it suffers a series of apparent accidents - mishaps that are actually the deadly acts of a determined saboteur.

Celebrated mystery writer Mickey Spillane (as himself) arrives on the scene and attempts to solve the baffling case.

Presented in Anamorphic Widescreen with English DD2.0 and DD4.0 Surround and optional English subtitles.

Thanks for preview of what we'll be seeing coming May 23rd. I'm really glad Paramount seems to delving right into their newly aquired Republic titles.

By the way, what does 'Features are TBC' mean?

I see that the Universal John Wayne box set is up for pre-order. Has anyone been able to find the Paramount or Warner box sets yet?

Cameron

^have not seen a pre-order date for the warner set, conflicting dates are showing for 06.06.06 and 06.13.06

Appears the Warner set is a go for 6/13. Wish the preorders for the Paramount Republic titles would appear.

Thanks Cameron.

Okay Paramount...what's the deal? Two months from today these are suppose to hit the street, and I still can't find any online stores taking a preorder yet.

Certainly hope they are not thinking of pushing back the release date.

seems that lionsgate is getting around to re-releasing older titles and hopefully some of the unreleased canceled paramount John Wayne titles in double feature disc. Not sure if new masters were ever made, and even so if they will be used. http://www.digitalcranium.com/dvd/john-wayne-double-feature-mix-12pk/john-wayne-double-feature-mix-12pk-pid-94685.html has a 12 pack listed for release on 05.23.06 while dvd empire has these double feature disc to release on 05.08.2007

Buy.com also has the 12-pack of double features up for pre-order, but I've got a sinking feeling that these are just going to be recycled titles of previously released material.

A year and a half after it was first announced, I'm still bummed about Paramount selling off Republic's back catelog to Lion's Gate. Talk about a studio dropping the ball BIG time. With all the wonderful titles still not released onto DVD, Paramount esstianally hands them off to a company that might as well put out public domain titles.

I am still waiting for a decent print of 'The Quiet Man' to be released!

It's a crime what Paramount did with Republic's back titles. Besides all the wonderful John Wayne titles that could have been released, there are a number of other truly classic titles waiting....and at the head of that list, Johnny Guitar.

At the very least, Paramount could have licensed out the titles to a company who would have done justice to them. Kind of like the deal Universal has with Shout Factory.
