quick dvd news

Just wanted to interrupt the corned beef and cabbage for a moment and note that Fox Home Entertainment has listed two films for development on their Fox Classics page, under coming soon: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and Stars and Stripes Forever (1952 bio of John Philip Sousa starring Clifton Webb). I know several Shelfers and classic film fans have been looking forward to Brooklyn for sure- let's hope they continue to do the great transfer jobs they've been doing lately on their classics. You can go to Fox Classics webpage to see the Coming Soon listing for yourself. It also includes several re-releases and the soon to be released special edition of The Robe. We just received a review copy and we will be posting that review soon. You can also read a transcript of the interesting chat with Fox restorationist Schawn Belston that was held at the Home Theater Forum, courtesy of The Digital Bits.
Stay tuned.

Oh, I know it's a penny here and a penny there, but look at me. I worked myself up from nothing to a state of extreme poverty.

For childhood, Saturday - free from school - is the most changeless of institutions - whether it is in city or village, or main street, or in those vital, teeming streets which were the Brooklyn of a few decades ago.

I am really glad to hear this about A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. I had never even seen this truly special film until it premiered on Turner Classic Movies a couple of months ago. This one is a keeper.
Thanks and great blog site.
