I am wondering if his page is for one of his final films, the film version of Christine Jorgensen's biography.
Hopefully not, that has to be the dullest film bio I have ever seen, not worthy of Criterion.

So Criterion will give it its own spine number and separate release then

I'm thinking that the most likely Irving Rapper is Another Man's Poison which is with Westchester Films.

Another Man's Poison was released by Cohen Media in UK.

I don't think that necessarily rules it out. Not to anyway denigrate the Cohen Media Group, who by all indication do an excellent job and are one of the best out there right now, but due to the nature of the Rohauer library there seems to be a lot of over lap in rights for many of the films Cohen have in their catalog. For example, the Buster Keaton films have two competing restorations. Janus/Criterion have 'duplicate' rights to several films in the library including Dreyer's Vampyr, Fire Over England and almost half the Paul Robeson box.

Westchester Films definitely have the rights to Another Man's Poison, so if anything, the fact that it wasn't released in the US may even point to the fact they know a competing release is coming. Westchester Films licenses many films to Criterion. Besides August's release of A Taste of Honey, there probably are at least another 5 films in the pipeline (the four from Hulu and Welles' Othello) so they are a likely candidate to be the source of the Irving Rapper film.

I found a page for Elem Klimov. Hopefully, Come and See will receive a Criterion release in the near future.

Klimov was added in a lot with Bondarchuk and Dovzhenko before the announcements for February. All of them are such exciting possibilities but I'm wary of whether to expect any or all these to come to light any time soon.

As much I would love to see a Criterion Come and See, it is most likely for the newly restored Welcome, or No Trespassing.

The reason I mentioned Alan Pattillo is that he was just added to the People list very recently, and Walkabout was upgraded to BluRay ages ago. I'm guessing they added him now for a different reason and linked to his existing work in the Collection when they did. I suppose they might be just tying up a loose end.

I think they're probably just batting cleanup on Walkabout. The only Criterionesque film that he worked on was Performance. With a Warner Blu-ray available, that seems unlikely. I guess Criterion and Warner could be interested in it as a way to fix the missing audio, and if they got Roeg to sit for a commentary, it would certainly be worth an upgrade. Pattillo gets a "special thanks" credit on Gregory's Girl, and I'd love a Criterion release of that.

Just to clarify, the missing audio was restored on the WB Blu-ray. The issue some had with the Blu-ray is that it used the dubbed voice for the Harry Flowers character.
