Don't worry zedz, they ARE keeping Soapdish on pressed disc, so clearly things will be okay

I was hoping Soapdish might get licensed to Criterion, it's really an undiscovered classic.

I was just name-checking a rando Paramount title that just got re-released as a budget $5.97 list price pressed title rather than a $19.99 DVD-R by Warners. I haven't seen it (Yet I still own it somewhere thanks to a certain failed web venture)

The titles that went to Criterion are probably the OOP ones that are commanding big bucks on the secondary market:

Nashville (Robert Altman)
Don't Look Now (Nicolas Roeg)
Pretty Baby (Louis Malle)
Danger: Diabolik (Mario Bava)
A Place under the Sun (George Stevens)
The Conformist (Bernardo Bertolucci)
Ragtime (Milos Forman)
Detective Story (William Wyler)
Targets (Peter Bogdanovich)
Hard Eight (Paul Thomas Anderson)
Day of the Locust (John Schlesinger)

Which would make the ignoring of Pakula all the weirder.

We pretty much know that Nashville is coming out from Criterion (given the newsletter clue), but I would really love for Targets, The Day of the Locust, Ragtime, A Place in the Sun, and Don't Look Now to get the Criterion treatment.

No. The rights reverted back to Paramount years ago.

Absolutely. The Studio Canal blu was so bad I couldn't even watch it on my 37" TV. I stupidly sold my DVD beforehand so I've been Don't Look Now-less for two years now.

Just pray they don't give transfer sign-off to the same QC person that approved Madame de. . .: they looove that smeary watercolour look.

Indeed they did. I wouldn't mind seeing a Criterion release of Big Night.

The fact that this hasn't been reissued by Warner Brothers has me optimistic that it's one of the titles Criterion licensed from Paramount. I think Cigarettes and Red Vines had also mentioned that Criterion were looking in to licensing the film.

I'd say those are pretty safe assumptions. Whatever the holes in the Warner reissues are the guide to what's been licensed elsewhere or wasn't wanted - but if something's fetching big OOP prices, then somebody's gotta want it...

Bummed about Targets, but life goes on. At least now I can get the DVD for less than half of the OOP market.

My votes go for Don't Look Now, The Elephant Man, Testament, King Kong (what you're looking at me like that for?) and most of all...BLOOD AND ROSES!!!!!!!

With Carlo Lizzani's recent passing, I wonder if Criterion would be interested in The Violent Four (AKA Bandits in Milan) for release as a pairing with Bitter Rice (which he worked on as a screenwriter).
