I couldn't find Hen's Tooth Video in a search on this board so I created a new topic for it. Please let me know if a topic for this distributor already exists.

Here are their previously released titles on Blu-ray:

I thought The Ninth Configuration was a WB property?

Unfortunately their web site is pretty awful and doesn't work at all on iPad. And just barely on a PC.

They do have the only US release of Peckinpah's "Cross of Iron" on DVD, which has a well-regarded commentary track by Stephen Prince, so credit for that. The Optimum/Kinowelt Region B Blu release is is otherwise superior in all regards, but is lacking the Prince commentary.

Well, the film was an independent production (half funded by Blatty and half by Pepsi!) that's been released on video by a number of companies. For example, Image did the laserdisc back in the day. It was originally distributed in the U.S. by an outfit called United Film Distributors, which is almost certainly not the same one as this. The copyright on the long-OOP WB disc is still credited to "The Ninth Configuration Company." It seems safe to assume that WB licensed the film at some point—maybe because of the Blatty/Exorcist connection—but never owned it outright. Ironically Blatty never even tried to set it up at WB because he felt they'd cheated him out of profits from The Exorcist.
