Wow. I love this movie but that seems wholly unnecessary -- and surprising, since I imagine it's quite a popular disc for MGM/Fox.


Less than stellar transfer though. Could certainly be improved upon.

I guess it's possible the other film is THE DEEP.

Would be nice if Criterion could somehow preserve and present some of the deteriorating nitrate stock just sitting in Paramount's vault for IT'S ALL TRUE, but that's probably way beyond the scope of a reissue project. Here's an inventory done fifteen years ago documentary the existing footage for three of the film's sequences:

"My Friend Bonito" — Approximately 67,145 feet of black-and-white not preserved; 8,000 feet preserved.
"Carnaval" — Approximately 32,200 feet of black-and-white not preserved; 3,300 feet preserved. Approximately 2,700 feet of Technicolor not preserved (in Paramount Studios vaults); approximately 2,750 feet processed for use in the 1993 documentary.
"Jangadeiros" — Approximately 28,000 feet of black-and-white not preserved; approximately 35,950 feet preserved.


There does exist several reels of rushes for the "Jangadeiros" episode that was not included in the 1993 documentary/construction but has been screened at Welles festivals.

Is it time and expense that holds these back, or are they also subject to the usual Welles legal disputes?

Issa Clubb mentioned during the Ann Arbor Welles symposium last week that THE IMMORTAL STORY would be released alongside CHIMES AT MIDNIGHT, but he wasn't clear if it was to be a single release. Given that the two were consecutive films for Welles as director, it would make more sense to combine them than it would to place IT'S ALL TRUE (1942/1993) next to either of them.

Purely time and expense I believe. Paramount owns the footage outright.

Based on what I saw & heard at the University of Michigan Welles Symposium (including some footage from The Deep that was screened by Stefan Droessler), there is no way that anyone is releasing anything related to The Deep any time soon.

I give the odds of the intern having forgotten to confirm the website updates after looking at the preview page before he left the office at 3-to-1.

This is ridiculous. Is it incompetence or are they intentionally toying with us? Weeks to prepare 4-5 little pages, and then all they have to do is update the index on the 15th. How could you mess that up?

They did explicitly say on Twitter that announcements were happening today, so we can totally call them out on it if it doesn't happen

"Sorry all, our September titles announce is postponed until tomorrow—we still have a few kinks to work out! "

I don't get it.... What kind of kinks would prevent the announcement?

They update extra listings all the time, so it's not that. Nor is it release date adjustments. Or cover art. These titles are 3 months away, so there can't be legal hurdles at this point.

Anyone?
