Any news on the Rathbone/Bruce Hound of the Baskervilles and Adv. of Sherlock Holmes?

Well the third and final box set in MPI's release of the Rathbone/Bruce Sherlock Holmes series is finally out. But there's still no mention on when or if MPI will release the two Fox period films in the series, Hound of the Baskervilles and Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Do they not have the rights to these two films?

I believe MPI is releasing both in April. I think Deep Discount already has them up for preorder.

While I'm really glad that the last two will be released, I was somewhat bummed to read the following.

This is quoted from an article in the January 25th edition of Video Store magazine (a trade publication). Ben Pavlovic is production coordinator for MPI.

Pavlovic said that these two, which many consider the best in the series, did not undergo the same extensive restoration that the 12 from Univeral did.

Still, "they look better than what's been out on home video in the past," he said.

They will include commentary tracks, production notes and photo galleries.

"We saved them for last because we put good bonus items on them," Pavlovic said.

Another interesting item from the same article was:

The UCLA restoration project was partially funded by Playboy's Hugh Hefner, Pavlovic noted.
