  1. Great news about "Black Widow". I never cared for Sword of Sherwood Forest or The Adventures of Hajji Baba. With that said, I haven't view either film since I was a kid so perhaps my opinion could change about them. Frankly, I never heard of the fourth title.

  2. Three out of four for me. I'm especially stoked on Adventures Of Hajji Baba, a childhood favorite. Short Night Of Glass Dolls is a superior giallo and Black Widow is a nifty murder mystery among the glamour set a la Laura..

  3. Twilight Time is bringing out some really obscure stuff. Once again these are four titles that I'm completely unfamiliar with. I might have to go for Black Widow and Adventures of Hajji Baba simply because of my interest in CinemaScope 2.55:1 with stereophonic sound.

  4. BLACK WIDOW is also interesting for the short-lived adult screen career of child star Peggy Ann Garner. She worked on Broadway and TV (eg. she was a villain in BATMAN) and sadly passed away at a young age. She was married to Albert Salmi (THE BROTHERS KARAMAZOV, Captain Tucker in Lost In Space), who had an even sadder demise killing his (second) wife and then himself. WIDOW is not in the same league as LAURA or ALL ABOUT EVE screenplay-wise, but is nonetheless very entertaining. Most will guess the identity of the killer before it is revealed.
    HAAJI BABA was restored a few years ago, as was THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE FREE, which needs a correct aspect ratio release after the dismal Archive transfer in 4:3. It is a fun Scope adventure with racy elements which somehow got by the Production Code personnel. The title song by Nat King Cole is guaranteed to stay on one's brain for days after viewing the film, which is a good or bad thing depending on one's personal taste, PRINCE OF PLAYERS has been shown in HD in Scope and stereo- how much longer must we wait for this Philip Dunne gem? Another Dunne title which is excellent and sadly underrated / neglected is THE VIEW FROM POMPEY'S HEAD, with a terrific Elmer Bernstein score, released a while ago by FSM.

    BLACK WIDOW (1954) BLU-RAY – October 16th

    SHORT NIGHT OF THE GLASS DOLLS (1971) BLU-RAY – October 16th

    Sword of Sherwood Forest was recently shown on UK TV in HD ….the film was not that good with Richard Greene looking far too old and Maid Marion was simply awful.

    The Adventures of HB…….never seen this

    Black Widow is a colourful Film Noir which is good but not one you may watch a 2nd time unless you are a Film Noir fan like me.

    Short Night etc……….never seen this one.

  6. Black Widow is a great one, I just rewatched it in the past week.. I need to watch more DVDs as whenever I do,it gets a blu ray announcement short thereafter..
    Well sometimes anyway 🙂
    I need to revisit Short Night of the Glass Dolls, the others I am unfamiliar with..

  7. battlebeast

    Nothing again…

    …which creates the opportunity to catch up on their earlier titles not yet owned.:)

    As for me, I'll always jump at any Nunnally Johnson effort.:thumbs-up-smiley:

  8. I am a Hammer Films fan and collector. But I was hoping Indicator would release Sword of Sherwood with 3 other Hammer adventure titles In a box set. Hammer Films Vol. 4 or Vol. 5 maybe. Twilight Time charges $32.00 + just for 1 movie ! ?? Last year I bought Hammer's The Pirates of Blood River from them.

    $29.95 plus s/h

  10. Black Widow for sure! That one is awesome! Used to own the DVD. BLU is a must own.

    Short Night of Glass Dolls a surprising choice for TT. Curious if any extas will be on disc. But if TT wants a great commentary track they should reach out to Kat Ellinger and Samm Deighan of Diabolique magazine. They have many commentary tracks and they would do an awesome job.

    Nothing again…

    Lucky you! 🙂 With this announcement, this makes 22 TT titles on my want list. I try and wait for their sales but I just might have to pay full price for Adventures Of Hajji Baba.

    Actually, if there are titles for you in this announcement, I'm happy! I'm glad people can get what they like! 🙂

  13. Look, I'm probably one of the only REALLY rabid widescreen historical adventure film loons around here, but let's face it, these two, Sherwood Forest and Hajji Baba, don't register on my "give 'em a try" list or on my "saw 'em on Saturday Night at the Movies" must have list. For God's sake, TT is sitting on stuff like The Story of Ruth, Barabbas, Michael Curtiz's Francis of Assisi and Raoul Walsh's Esther and the King. I want to give it the old school boy try and drop $30 on titles in the genre I adore, but I'm conflicted. I bought the Blood River pirate movie, it was okay and seemingly about the caliber of these two. I'm pre-ordering Genghis Khan, which I'm genuinely excited about and one title I'd pay damned near anything to get. Just wish the A List titles I've loved forever even had a chance. Maybe they never will,

    They are "sitting" on those titles?

    The Story Of Ruth, Francis Of Assisi and Esther And The King are stodgy, rather heavy handed biblical epics that are examples of what killed off the genre. Joan Collins recalls EATK: "it was an awfful film, full of pseudo Biblical Hollywood dialog. It really was awful stuff but atrocious as the film was, my professionalism got the better of me and I tried to do the best I could with the part of the simpering heroine." At least, Hajji Baba is mindless fun in a schoolboy's adventure book way. I actually have Ruth, Francis and Esther on DVD but I'd never upgrade them to blu.

    Ed, I can only comment on The Story of Ruth having a decent master so it could probably be released without a problem by TT but it is a movie genre that has a very limited following these days, I think it took ages for TT to sell all 3000 discs of Demetrius and the Gladiators.

    As for Barrabas if you want a version that is based on the old and ugly master that Sony has now you can buy the French release. I you want something better you'll have to wait as Grover Crisp and his team do not yet have a new version and in fact I do not even know if they are already working on it.

  17. Hajji Baba sounds interesting, I’ll bite. But I have to second releasing those Biblical titles if anyone can get their hands on them. Any widescreen epic from the mid 50s to the early 60s is gold for me.

  18. Billy Batson

    I don't think any company is sitting on those titles, they have to wait until the studio gets around to remastering these titles in HD.

    Yes. That is usually what TT is waiting for before they release certain titles. I was just wondering if I missed a posting someone where they indicated they have been newly remastered.

  19. I'm definitely in for Black Widow! That release announcement certainly came out of nowhere, since I had asked TT on FB about a year ago if they had any Ginger Rogers movies and was told at that time they didn't. Of course, if I could have had my choice of her Fox movies, I would have preferred either Roxie Hart or Monkey Business, but I will be happy with this one!

  20. I will certainly purchase Black Widow and the Adventures of Haji Baba.

    I do not know if TT has renewed its agreement with Fox as I am very interested in several titles that have undergone recent restoration by the studio:

    – Zoo in Budapest
    – Spencer Tracy’s precodes
    – A couple of Shirley Temple’s flicks
    – Pilgrimage
    – An Apartment for Peggy
    – Moontide
    – Cluny Brown
    – a Royal Scandal
    – the Snake Pit
    – Untamed
    – Man in the Gray Flannel Suit
    – a Harful of Rain
    – Warlock
    – Three coins in the fountain
    – Monkey Business

    Among others

    I definitely would like to see a blu of An Apartment for Peggy. For that matter since we're on the topic of Jeanne Crain films, where is Margie? That film has never had any type of home video release! I would be the first in line to plunk down thirty dollars (plus shipping and handling) should Twilight Time announce that film.

  23. I was due for a good month from TT only 2-3 titles for me all year this year so far when I normally want 1-2 a month in previous years. As a Hammer fan Sword of Sherwood forest is a must for me. Peter Cushing is great in one of his rare villain roles. I will also get Haji Baba and probably the Italian Giallo as it has a Morricone score but I have not seen that one. No interest in Black Widow.

    Hopefully with highly directional dialog!

  25. Well, my mind is officially blown – Twilight Time releasing Short Night of Glass Dolls…Wow. Here's hoping that the transfer is that beautiful restoration that the rest of the world has gotten. What a surprise announcement!

    The Story Of Ruth, Francis Of Assisi and Esther And The King are stodgy, rather heavy handed biblical epics that are examples of what killed off the genre. Joan Collins recalls EATK: "it was an awfful film, full of pseudo Biblical Hollywood dialog.

At least, Hajji Baba is mindless fun in a schoolboy's adventure book way. I actually have Ruth, Francis and Esther on DVD but I'd never upgrade them to blu.

    I own the DVD of Esther and the King and I really like it. Full of some of the wildest orgy dance sequences I've ever seen in any of the widescreen "epic" films. Pretty gorgeous to look at, too, and would be incredibly improved in HD, plus it was so much more fun, elaborate and expensive than most all Hammer fare, but that's my opinion. Raoul Walsh did a damned good job with it. Collins thankfully found the genre best suited to her in The Bitch and The Stud. So easy to be snarky about peplum and biblical/historical stuff, I know, but a few of us really get a kick out of it. Paul Newman went on that same snarky path about The Silver Chalice, but his role was simpering boy toy so it's no wonder. Jack Palance and Virginia Mayo probably had a different opinions.

  27. I loved ESTHER AND THE KING when it came out, and I also saw it at the Raoul Walsh retrospective at MOMA which was a beautiful print and I thought it played even better than it did when I initially saw it. Admittedly, that was 40 years ago, so my tastes may have changed, but I'm certainly up for a day 1 purchase. Now that only leaves 2,998 people. See how easy that is! By the way, I also thought that the film was a very accurate adaptation of what when I was young we used to refer to as the Whole Megillah–specifically Megillat Esther. So the film worked for me twice in two very different ways: first as a fairly serious–not to mention lavish–adaptation of one of my favorite books of the Bible, and second, as an excellent distillation of the style and personality of one of my very favorite directors, Raoul Walsh.

    Ed, I'm not being a snob about the genre as I'm a fan of peplum and "biblical" epics too. I'd love to have some of Steve Reeves stuff like Hercules, Hercules Unchained, Goliath And The Barbarians and Last Days Of Pompeii on blu ray. I think The Silver Chalice is undervalued too, certainly its superb art direction and beautiful Franz Waxman score and a terrific Virginia Mayo performance (the other actors "get by") add to the entertainment value. But I stick by my guns on Esther, Francis and Ruth. They're a tough slog to get through and I want to like them but they take themselves too seriously. I like my biblical epics along the style of Samson And Delilah, Demetrius And The Gladiators, The Ten Commandments etc. with just the right amount of kitsch. Esther, Francis and Ruth belong to the Greatest Story Ever Told school of biblical film making (make of that what you will 🙂 ) Of course, I like serious biblical fare if done extremely well like Wyler's Ben-Hur and Nick Ray's King Of Kings.

    As for Miss Collins, she finally found stardom late in life, not with The Stud and The Bitch but as Alexis Carrington Colby on the nighttime soap Dynasty. She was never meant to play virginal heroines like Esther. She found her niche with Dynasty.

  29. Thomas T

    But I stick by my guns on Esther, Francis and Ruth. They're a tough slog to get through . . . . .

    I don't find them a tough slog to get through! I love them and I'd jump for a high quality Blu-ray disc of any of them. Until this Disney deal, I was thinking it was just a matter of waiting patiently and sooner or later Fox would get around to them. Now, I'm not so sure.

  30. So much to reply tol. I collect early scope films from Fox. Never thought I would see Haji baba.
    Already have the dvd of Black Widow, which I think is a truly terrible film. Ginger Rogers is embarrassingly bad in it.
    Fox scope films I would love and now think I will Never see.
    Best Things in Life Are Free
    A Certain Smile
    The Racers
    Prince of Players
    I think Story of Ruth is not a bad film, the other two mentioned are terrible.
    How about the film Marilyn from 1963 – it seems to have disappeared.
    It has an alternate scope version of Diamonds are a Girls best Friend that Zanuck had shot as a scope demo.

    BLACK WIDOW is also interesting for the short-lived adult screen career of child star Peggy Ann Garner. She worked on Broadway and TV (eg. she was a villain in BATMAN) and sadly passed away at a young a young age

    Garner was a last minute replacement for an ailing Maggie McNamara. Fox had a film crew shooting exteriors in NYC and a cameraman who had worked on her pictures when she was at Fox ran into Garner in a hotel lobby and she ended up replacing McNamara. According to fan magazines Garner wore her own clothes in the movie due to the time crunch.

    How about the film Marilyn from 1963 – it seems to have disappeared.
    It has an alternate scope version of Diamonds are a Girls best Friend that Zanuck had shot as a scope demo.

    The clip of "Diamond's Are A Girls Best Friend" is the from the original movie. Monroe's hair gets caught on a diamond bracelet at the exact same point in the number. The C-scope version is still unseen. I originally added this to the IMDb-"The "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" number was later re-shot in CinemaScope, to be used as part of a CinemaScope demonstration held on the Fox lot in March of 1953. Producer Darryl F. Zanuck told "Daily Variety" that it only took 3-1/2 hours to shoot the number in CinemaScope versus four days for the original film version." I got that piece of information from the notes section of the much derided (in some places) book "Widescreen Movies" by John Belton. Somebody later added this-"The public finally saw the CinemaScope version ten years later when it closed Fox's documentary tribute to Marilyn Monroe: Marilyn (1963)," Tain't true. This should take you to a YouTube full screen version but the hair getting caught remains the same-http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9acLIZ5pTg8&t=313s
    The chances of her hair getting caught on a bracelet twice at the same point in the song are highly unlikely. Other than that -Joe Caps, thanks for the great LaserDiscs that I still own and can still play!

    Just because they used the actual movie footage in the pan-and-scan TV print of Marilyn, doesn't mean that the CinemaScope version wasn't used in the Theatrical version which was projected at 2.35:1. It's highly likely that they would has substituted the 4X3 movie version for the CinemaScope retake for the TV print because it would look better on TV than a pan-and-scan of the CinemaScope take.

  34. And I always remember the last shot of the film on TV where she sings "best friend" (and the VHS I made of it) looked squeezed the way CinemaScope does when it isn't cropped or letterboxed, so that's clearly the reshot version.

  35. The last shot is a still frame. Why they cut to that, who knows. There is no evidence available that the Scope version was used in the 1963 "Marilyn" and it's quite reasonable that the re-shot version, screened once 10 years before was long forgotten. If it was premiere footage why doesn't Rock Hudson mention it? That would be a selling point. There used to be a much better letterboxed version of the whole film on YouTube and that's when I originally compared the two. Agree to disagree I guess.

    I'm not going to defend the quality of "Esther and The King" but I will say a word in defense of "Greatest Story Ever Told" which for me is much superior to "King Of Kings" in terms of source fidelity. KOK has a great score by Rozsa but it's through-line narrative is ridiculous. The real pity is that GSET has not been done right on Blu-Ray.

    If TT were able to release "Barabbas" that would also be welcome as the Crucifixion sequence filmed during an actual eclipse was a masterstroke.

  43. I'll be getting Sword of Sherwood simply because for those English and Australian people of my generation, Richard Greene was THE exemplar Robin Hood (after Errol Flynn, of course). 'The Adventures of Robin Hood' was the very first program I ever saw on television, when broadcasts began in late 1956 .. I, along with scores of others, were standing in the street outside our local electrical appliance retailer to see this miracle. On the same bill that evening was either 'Father Knows Best', or 'Our Miss Brooks' .. perhaps both. Maybe 'Leave it to Beaver' as well.
