I wish TT didn't get so many Woody Allen movies. I can't afford to keep getting these!

The fact that a John Wayne film is going to Twilight Time is just sad. They always move a fair number of units and are a great sales bet. Sad to see MGM doesn't think so anymore.

These will eventually come out again on another label. TT only hires the rights for a short period of time. It was worth the wait for THE FURY so I can wait for Woody Allen and David Lynch down the road.

Criterion is the only company worth spending $35 for a blu ray release. TT has not proved to me yet why we would shell out big bucks for non-restored films and very little in the way of special features. With Criterion you know that you are getting a thorough restoration (either from 2K or 4K elements) and tons of special features. TT can limit these unwanted titles as much as they want. None of these are worth buying on DVD, let alone blu ray. Just my opinion.

I highly recommend Violent Saturday and The Secret of Santa Victoria . Brannigan is going to be a "blind buy", but a safe bet.

>Even TT can't sell all of the 3,000 copies of most of the films they contract.

At those prices... I am surprised they sell 300. A good portion probably go to people connected to the original production.

There are so many good deals with general release BDs you have to be a hard-core fan of a specific title (or an uber-rich hoarder) to frequent TT. Ironic too, as it once was a bargain to find a new LD release for $34.95 with any sort of extras back in the day... but times have changed, and so have our options for high quality home entertainment.

YAY! 'Born Yesterday' (1950) is an AMAZING film. William Holden and Judy Holliday are magnificent. Will definitely be getting this.

For anyone interested in The Buddy Holly Story but resent paying that much for it: it's been out in the UK for a long time now, and is REGION FREE! You can pick it for $10 at most, and is remastered, widescreen, has commentary and the trailer with it.

If you care to flip the bird at Twilight Time for either their extortionate prices or limited numbers, then pick this one up for a fraction of the cost. You might find a used copy of it going even cheaper! It seems timely to paraphrase Used Cars, so here goes:

"Wait - it that a 1978 Buddy Holly Story going for $35? That's too f**kin' high!"

Is every conversation ever related to Twilight Time going to become an argument over their business model? Get over it. They have to charge $30 to be able to justify bringing any of these titles to disc at all, and the original studios have absolutely no interest in releasing them otherwise. If the price tag is too high, don't buy them, but it's ignorant to comment that they aren't charging $10 a disc, or that they are going to get released in the Region A otherwise. They won't. And the "no special features" comment that is always brought out in these "discussions" is also ignorant and outdated. TT has included many special features on their discs for at least a year, some of them newly produced. Stick to the films - the TT business model "dead horse" has been beaten enough. Don't like it? Don't support it.

Personally, it isn't a particularly thrilling list for me, but I will be picking up BY and The Buddy Holly Story for sure, and I'll read up on the others.

". They have to charge $30 to be able to justify bringing any of these titles to disc at all, "

Companies like Criterion, Masters of Cinema (in the UK), Shout Factory, Kino Lorber, Raro, and Olive Films among others release titles often alot more obscure then say John Wayne's BRANNIGAN, without limiting them to 3,000 or charging $30 each and they still manage to make a profit. (they'd be out of business otherwise)...

@interplanetaryspy: They don't "have" to, they "choose" to, exploiting consumer ignorance, fear, and the prevailing misconception that discs are dying (something sales figures seem to almost constantly disprove, but certain studios are trying to force their agenda on us, and the internet community, which makes up 100% of the digital market, but far less of the physical market is helping to perpetuate the digital myth even faster) to justify their minimal risk, high reward business model. A business model that is not designed to fulfill demand for these movies, only to move stock as fast as they can by virtually tricking consumers into not only buying something they might have thought twice about, if not for the extremely limited supply, but paying far more than they should reasonably invest for such a mediocre effort. TT does "have" to charge more than the studio itself would to manufacture the disc, since they have additional licensing expenses, but Mill Creek and Echo Bridge I think overwhelmingly indicate that such licensing costs aren't that substantial. By "choosing" such inefficiently tiny production quantites, their cost per disc is no doubt higher than conventional disc production, but you're still talking about basic replication costs of well under $2 for each copy, probably less than $1. That's for the disc, case, artwork; everything except certain mastering or authoring costs they might commission, in which case, unlike Criterion, they likely just replicate whatever they're provided by the studio, maybe do a little digital tweaking after the fact, which itself on degrades fidelity with artificial enhancements like DNR and level boosting to make the image pop more on small consumer displays.

Don't listen to the 25 year old "experts" here, who have absolutely no intimate experience in this industry and have gullibly fallen for this tactic and are tired of hearing about how they've been taken advantage of. TT's business model is born of cheap, exploitive marketing, not any remote manner of necessity.

Secret of Santa Vittoria has been available on a very good transfer from Germany for some time but only with German subtitles. If this new release has English subtitles for the hearing impaired it will be an improvement despite the high price. Even more so if it contains any decent extras

Ditto the first post. though a bit embarrassed to after the previous post. Bought a lot of their titles & never complained about their prices, just made tough choices about which films I could afford and wanted enough. These Woody Allen films fall right in the middle, films I remember fondly & would love to get if they were cheaper, like the Woody Allen 5 film bundle. Same for Used Cars.

Add Radio Days to my list, that and "The Train" are the two TT movies I'm aiming for. I don't mind their business model, sure it's pricey, but it's still cheaper than importing most UK editions or buying a region free BR player and then importing titles.

Twilight Time has some titles I'd like to have, but won't pay $30 for. However, if they ever release Waterland (Irons/Ethan Hawke), The Whole Wide World (Zelwegger), Ghost World, The Station Agent, Nowhere in Africa, Hope and Glory, Fandago, Heaven Can Wait (Beatty), or the World According to Garp, I'd pay whatever it took as I doubt most of these will ever see the light of day. I said that about Mysterious Skin and look what happened. Every other movie I have ever wanted has been released in the US or is out in another country (Bend it Like Beckham and What's Eating Gilbert Grape). There are two others that are unreleased that I want, The Abyss and The Wall, but I'm sure they will be major releases one day and soon in the $9.99 bin at Amazon.

Pre-orders are always roughly a month before release date, but from my experience in purchasing practically every title they've released, you don't need to pre-order unless it's a horror or very popular cult title like Body Double. Those are the only ones that have sold out immediately.

Thankfully (for my wallet...and also my nerves, as a few of their titles seemed to sell out as soon as they were available for pre-order), a list from which my BD collection can go without.
