I agree...the remake is very good, but the original is a classic. I would love to see both versions of the original make their way onto a Blu-ray release, with and without the framing device.

Coming 7/12!






Hopefully they'll port over the High Noon extras.

re: Olive Films to distribute Paramount and Republic titles

Body Snatchers I'm especially looking forward to - I just wish that Olive titles weren't so damn expensive. Between these two, Space Children, Colossus of New York, and whatever other Republic/Paramount stuff they put out in the second half of this year, I'll be cleaned out!

Nope:
Quote:
• THE MAKING OF HIGH NOON (1992 – 23 MINUTES) - NARRATED BY LEONARD MALTIN
Includes Interviews with LLOYD BRIDGES | STANLEY KRAMER | FRED ZINNEMANN | JOHN RITTER | DAVID CROSBY | Archival Interview with GARY COOPER
• THEATRICAL TRAILER
And zip for Body Snatchers. Both are 'restored in HD from the film's original negative' though. Here's what was dropped from High Noon:

Quote:
• Commentary by Maria Cooper-Janis, Jonathan Foreman, Tim Zinneman, John Ritter, and David Crosby.
• Featurette: Inside High Noon (49:56).
• Featurette: Behind High Noon (9:47).
• Featurette: Tex Ritter: A Visit to Carthage Texas (5:57).
Tex Ritter performing the Oscar winning theme song on The Jimmy Dean Show (2:54)
• Radio broadcast with Tex Ritter on the Ralph Emery Show (5:35)
I guess I'll just stick my High Noon disc into the Blu-ray case then.

High Noon and Invasion of the Body Snatchers?! Despite extras being dropped, that still makes me very happy.

re: Olive Films to distribute Paramount and Republic titles

Agreed! I consider it one of the greatest American films of the 1950's, so I'm looking forward to retiring my washed-out German DVD.

Body Snatchers! Johnny Guitar! In HD!

With these two, the Godard releases, and 1900 (among others), Olive is turning out to be one of the most exciting labels.

Check out the list of potential Blu-ray Republic titles here - Beware my Lovely, Ruthless, Letter from an Unknown Woman, That Cold Day in the Park, China Gate, The Quiet Man, and a billion others. The mind boggles!

Would love to see this one get a BD release.
Have never seen it, but it has a substantial, glowing write up in the book 1001 Movies You Must See Before you Die.

Otherwise, IOTBS is my #1 most wanted from the Republic catalog. Thrilled to see it coming sooner rather than later.

Perfect Weapon is $21.99 on Amazon?! Man, I want it, but that's pretty steep...

What I wouldn't give for a blu-ray edition of Firstborn (1984) or The Boogens (1981) as they never got a DVD treatment. I'm not going to hold my breath though, especially with all of the titles on that list that are legitimately worthy.

Lionsgate has been sitting on them for years, so at least they're finally going to be released.

re: Olive Films to distribute Paramount and Republic titles

It turns out High Noon and Invasion won't be taken from the original negatives:

The original negative for INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS does not exist and is considered lost.

The HIGH NOON negative does exist – But this restoration was done off a FINEGRAIN.

I suppose it makes a fair deal of sense to consider it lost if it doesn't exist.

Body Snatchers and High Noon?

Fantastic news.

Now, if someone would just get Ferrara's version of Body Snatchers out, I could complete the trifecta.

re: Olive Films to distribute Paramount and Republic titles

I wish that it were possible to somehow remove the tacked-on voice-over narration and framing sequence in Snatchers, but obviously that's wishful thinking. The film is still a classic, but it would be even better without the compromised ending and redundant, atmosphere-destroying voice-over.
