Two More Titles Coming Up From Olive Films in August

Olive Films have added two more titles to their August slate: Gordon Douglas' Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye (1950), starring James Cagney, Barbara Payton, and Helena Carter, and Lesley Selander's Flat Top (1952), starring Sterling Hayden, Richard Carlson, and William Phipps.
Ralph Cotter doesn't care about anything. Except his next "kill". After escaping from prison, the cold-blooded mobster satisfies a pent-up lust for violence in an unstoppable crime-spree with Barbara, his love-struck gun moll. But when Cotter heartlessly murders her brother and dumps her for a classy debutante, Barbara plots a vicious end to the gangster's cruel campaign. It's James Cagney as his bad-guy best in this tense saga on underworld revenge.
They are reckless. Cunning. And very deadly. Thy are the most fearless fighter pilots in the Pacific. And they turn the blue skies bloody red in this blazing WWII adventure. The Third Fleet carrier force streaks toward the Japanese-held Philippines. Their mission: launch an all-out air strike to regain control of the embattled islands. But the fleet's top-gun fighter squadron must fly into combat without one of its hottest pilots. Grounded by the carrier's steel-nerved skipper for disobeying orders, the young flight officer must sit out the explosive air war. But as the overwhelming Japanese air force downs most of the squadron, the suspended ace is desperately restored to duty. And now, with the squadron's very life at stake, he must win back his commander's respect in a ferocious battle for honor and glory.
I have more than enough money to keep up with Olive Films titles, the ones from the 1920's-1960's, and these are extremely affordable.
They should release these as bundled 5 film sets with certain themes. Individual slim Viva elite cases.
These films should NOT be double and tripled on Blu-ray. Period.
Furthermore, from the boutique labels operating on the U.S. market that strive to bring lesser seen films to Blu-ray, Olive Films actually have the BEST understanding how they should be sold. Just about every single company out there could spend a bit of time looking at Olive's cover designs and learn how classic/catalog titles should look when they arrive on Blu-ray.
Thank God this isn't a label obsessed with the "floating heads" syndrome.
Keep doing what you doing, Olive. Your strategy is most definitely RIGHT, and the people who follow the market closely know it and appreciate everything you do.
