Those two are as exciting news as can be. I've been wanting to see any Berlanga for years now and so this is about as exciting an announcement they could give to me.

Felipe Cazals! I have only see Los Poquianchis and El Apando. I have no idea what Criterion would release out of the rest of his filmography.

Based on the amount of the names they've been adding on their days off, I wonder if they are prepping all these directors for the Filmstruck launch...

The group FrauBlucher poster have been there for years, they've not just been added. They still indicate something is coming but I would't necessarily expect anything in the nar future from them.

I did a search before posting. None of them came up.

Just did a recheck and Ralph Thomas was indeed posted prior to mine.

No, it's fine that they've been posted, but I think there's a considerable difference in noting whether or not an entry was just added (such as the listing for Cazals) or something that just happen to be on the server (like yours). Just think it may be worth mentioning it because something that's *just* been added going on recent history will be in the coming set of releases far more frequently.

What are the chances that the phantom page for George Stevens is for Gunga Din? There's no blu-ray release to my knowledge, at least in the U.S.

Well, it acts as a double confirmation as there was already a page for Bondarchuk with different spelling. This might indicate they've been inspecting what's on the site for an imminent release and thus he will get a release before, say, Klimov that was added at the same time, or it could just be they realized their mistake and added a new page to fix it so it's ready to go for whenever they get around to it.

Both are accepted spellings.
