Double Indemnity update

My order was cancelled and it suddenly went missing from Amazon's site.
Odd, to say the least. I guess that means it's never coming.

It gets even worse, this guy already posted to another thread that was created yesterday, specific to Double Indemnity's status. Someone even told him that Amazon changed their status ... yesterday.

Laura is being delayed because Fox is making it part of their film noir line. No released date have been announced yet, but it is coming.

Is there any new news on this release? I have been wanting to pick it up for over a year since I first saw it in my film class but it was out of print and the rerelease keeps getting delayed.

Worst use of search to revive an old post ever!

At least maybe we can get a ? in the title now, since it's been misleading twice.

Still holding on to my old Image copy.

Hopefully Universal will get around to doing a new version of this and MST3K the Movie someday.

Yeah I know this had a misleading title, but it was the most reason post on the topic, a question mark really needs to be in the title.

I hear this is available for DL on

Mod note: I know it's an older movie but is it really in the public domain? Links/discussions about bootlegging/pirating are not allowed here. If this is a PD movie please substantiate the claim and we can replace the link.

thanks
nemein


That might help you cope for now.

I'm 99 percent sure "Double Indemnity" is not in the public domain. Universal owns the rights.

UPDATE: It's highly anticipated. And it's owned by Universal. Therefore, it'll come up when hell freezes over.


Grrrrrrr... Seriously, there's been no news since the announced DVD was canceled.

Although far from a perfect release, I'm content with my Image release for now, though I certainly wouldnt mind someone like Criterion picking this one up.

you know if you really didn't like it you could delete the thread....or you could just edit the first post to make yourself look less noobed.

let it stand, its a good place to get the info when it come available...and it seems to be found in the search engine well, which is a problem many seem to face

Unless you have some sort of inside info, I don't think that can be said definitively. Criterion & Universal have had a long and fruitful working relationship in the past. Double Indemnity is--as far as I'm concerned--the seminal film noir, and is deserving of a deluxe 2-disc special edition, but Universal has done so little with its back catalogue (except for the Universal Monsters series, its Hitchcock holdings, and a few others) that I doubt they can do it justice. (They were clueless enough to announce a cheap, barebones release before they changed their mind.)

I'm still hopeful that it's been licensed to Criterion, but I agree it's a long shot.

You'll need to post the link---I don't find it listed on their site (and it is still listed as "TBD" in Barrie Maxwell's latest update). Besides, March 28th is a Monday.

I'm tempted to unload my Image disc as they're getting anywhere from $30 to $40 on eBay, definately will if a Criterion is announced.
