'Leave Her To Heaven' was my introduction to Gene Tierney (thanks, Grandma!), and Tierney did such an excellent job in that role that I don't think I ever managed to completely disassociate her other performances from it. Definitely picking that one up.

It sickens me to see a Company Like Twilight Get the rights to a Title Like "Philadelphia" that now only "3000" people will be able to enjoy.....soooooo stupid REGARDLESS of the reason. All they do is basically KILL a title that alot of people would love to add to their collection IF they arent lucky enough to be able to buy it. Im checking EVERY day to see when "Christine" will be up for purchase for fear Ill lose out like I did on Fright Night and Journey to the Center of the Earth. If they want to sell them at a High Price so be it.... but I have SERIOUS issue with this limited copies shit! Especially in a world where just getting these movies on BLU RAY is a battle now they create another one to be able to "BUY IT" ---ugh!

Interesting off-beat selection. Sony/Columbia obviously knows what it's doing by giving Twilight Time movies that won't sell up to company expectations, even "recent" films like PHILADELPHIA. Once-popular Oscar nominees and winners like AS GOOD AS IT GETS and STEEL MAGNOLIAS obviously haven't sold close to 3000 copies in the months since TT released them.

Great to see LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN show up, so I can stop suggesting it on Fox Connect's poll on what classics to put on Blu-ray. I wish they'd get more 1940s titles and especially 1930s titles that Fox and Columbia would never consider marketable to today's generation (Capra classics, John Ford at Fox, etc.).

I watched At Long Last Love on Netflix, and only got through a half hour--It's AS legendarily bad as the Golden Turkeys paint it to be. (Think "Struck with its own cuteness.")
That announcement did come out of nowhere, however. And if Fox doesn't want to go the Warner Archive route, and would rather let niche labels do all the small-title hire work for them to make them available for regular sales, I'm all for the idea--I'd rather buy a TT at Fox prices than buy a Fox at TT prices.

The reason why "As Good As It Gets" hasn't sold 3,000 units is because there aren't 3,000 people who want to pay $30 for one of those units. If the cost was half that or less, it would be easy to sell 3,000 units and more. This circular reasoning around baseless fear is annoying, and frustrating from a consumer standpoint.

It perplexes me to read that someone is sickened by such a release as "Philadelphia" that will only see 3,000 copies issued on Blu ray.

It would not BE released on Blu ray at all if TT weren't doing it. Sony can certainly issue it in the future should it so desire. Those poor souls not getting it on Blu ray can see it on standard DVD, surely. It's not likely that 3,000 copies will fly off the shelf in a week or two.

Does Twilight Time pay less for the rights if they cut less copies? Do their rights expire after the 3000 are printed shipped and sold? I can't imagine it's economically feasible to retain the holding after their limited release is done. And if so, it's not Twilight Time's fault that another company doesn't pick up the film and do a wider release. I am in for Christine, but if I miss the boat I'm not shelling out $200 on an aftermarket copy. Would I like to grab the original Fright Night? Yes, but it's not a good financial decision. Eventually another company will pick it up. I don't like the business model either. Twilight Time ought to have a sit-down with Mulvaney at Criterion about how to run a niche market releasing company. In the meantime, if nobody else is putting these out, and TT is making them available, it's not an awful thing at all.

Mysterious Island, Journey to the Center of the Earth(original), Fright Night(original). All limited edition expensive titles that I refused to buy for $30-$40. Now they sell on Ebay for $100 or more from people that stockpiled them knowing the value would go up. Twilight Time has created a black market for classic movies like these on blu-ray. They won't release these movies in a general blu-ray release, but every chapter in the Saw and Friday the 13th series is readily available. It makes no sense to me.

The funny thing about people complaining about the limited edition thing is that only a HANDFUL of TT releases have sold out. If you actually look at their catalog, you'll see that almost all of their limited release titles are still readily available. The reason why they get more popular movies like Fright Night is so that they can afford to release smaller, less popular films. Any release of theirs that is sold out will receive another release some time down the line. The ones that aren't (i.e. MOST of them) won't.

Fright Night was a total loss, as the limited release was gone in a matter of hours. They ruined Night of the Living Dead by Tom Savini. I refuse to buy into their limited to 3000 crap. I hate to see bigger companies whoring their catalog titles out to lesser publishers. Look at what Dimension did to the later entries in the Halloween series, having given their future over to Echo Bridge. Those discs are far worse than their DVD counterparts. Columbia Tri-Star is a big dumper of titles to Twilight Time, and I will stick with my DVDs until these titles end up in the hands of more competent companies.

The comments "blaming" Twilight Time for NOTLD are completely inaccurate. As has been stated repeatedly, Twilight Time is licensing pre-existing masters from either Fox or Columbia/Sony. The perceived defects in NOTLD had *nothing* to do with TT, and as has also been mentioned here (repeatedly), Savini himself loves the Blu-ray. It may not be the look *you* personally prefer and/or remember, but that has nothing to do with TT, other than that they licensed the title and sold it.

I'm behind everybody here that's pissed off at TTs marketing strategy. Most people can't afford to throw $30 or more away on bds. If TT can't make money releasing a title for 15-20 dollars, then don't bother acquiring them in the first place.

Why are bds so expensive to begin with? It's just a disc with some encryption on it. VHS tapes mechanically had a lot more going on inside them than blu-rays.

$300.00 for a bd? Those prices are reserved for the wealthy and mentally insane.

All of you should probably revisit my interview with Nick Redman, where he explained the exigencies of the magazine rate (i.e., limiting releases to 3000 copies). This anger is misplaced. For those you who insist these titles would be coming out "otherwise" if Twilight Time didn't agree to license them, I simply ask--where? How? Point to one release that Twilight Time has brought out that had a major studio (unlimited) release.

Leave Her To Heaven?! Awesome! I saw the Fox restoration of this about 4 years ago at the Pacific Film Archive and it looked AMAZING. They had a Fox technician on hand to show a comparison to the original negatives they had on hand with faded color and dirt. This will be a day 1 for me.

As for Twilight Time, I find the prices a little steep (but really, Criterion's MSRP is $40 -- it's just that Amazon, Best Buy and the others lower the prices) but I've paid it a couple times for titles I've wanted. Like JMK says, if the studios were going to release these titles, they would have released them. If Twilight Time didn't come along and create these minor releases, then they'd likely never get released on blu-ray. The 3000 limit, unfortunately, is because it's the limit before the release takes on a different legal level and requires a lot more cost for licensing.

I'm definitely in for The Driver. It's been rediscovered by a lot of folks because of its similarity to Drive, but it's been a fave of mine for years. It would be nice if they could unearth the extended cut that's about 30 mins longer than the theatrical cut that was on DVD. For those complaining about Twilight Time releases, I bought the blu ray of Our Man Flint and it's fantastic, it's got lots of special features plus a nice booklet. I'm a fan so it was well worth the $30 or so I paid for it. I rarely see the same complaints about Criterion titles that people have about TT titles, despite the fact that those items usually cost about $40. Twilight Time has no control over the 3000 limit as it's most likely a studio imposed limit to prevent competition from any future in-house releases. When I bought Flint, it had already been out for about a month and had no problem securing a copy from screenarchives, which accepts Paypal for payment which is convenient because I have a large balance from selling stuff so it didn't impact my wallet at all.

One last thing, I'm really, really hoping that the original Sleuth comes out on blu. As it was originally released by Fox which licensed it to Anchor Bay for DVD, I'm hoping that TT releases it if the studio isn't willing to.

I'd rather see some company like Shout Factory have the rights to release these on Blu Ray and naturally release more of them. If Shout Factory can release Blu Rays with limited appeal like Futureworld for $19.99 US, not sure why TT can't as well. Also wouldn't have made more sense to release something like The Driver when Drive was in theaters or at least when it was released on Blu Ray?

Some of the TT titles are also sold in 1080p download at iTunes for $15-18, such as The Song of Bernadette, Bonjour Tristesse, Nicholas and Alexandra, Night of the Living Dead (1990), Bye Bye Birdie, Journey to the Center of the Earth (1959), Fright Night (1985), and some others too. But iTunes only allows those who have HDCP-compliant computers to download the 1080p versions. I do, and I would definitely this as an alternative to those high-priced, often barebone TT Blu-rays.
