Great to hear about a potential Criterion release. Afro The prints of this I've seen were mediocre-to-terrible.

I rewatched Odd Man Out a few weeks back and reviewed it thus:

You didn't mention the score, its an integral part of "the bleakest finale offered by any '40s movie."

I'll have to re-watch this; I saw it once a while ago (I when I don't think I had seen many noirs) I wasn't enthusiastic then, but I see you all are; my movies tastes have probably changed a lot in the time since; I am gonna have to give this another shot

okay, I am gonna have to re-watch this; I saw it once, 2 1/2 years ago, my tastes of noir may well have changed, I see y'all like it, I'll give it another try.

I just bought another one of those Korean DVD's on eBay. (According to several eBay sellers, located in the USA, its an official Korean DVD; just has some Korean writing on the case and Korean subtitles that can be removed with the click of a remote.) There are plenty being offered for sale, for about six-and-a-half dollars including shipping. Supposed to arrive Thursday. I'll give it a spin  Smiley

neh, it's ok, we need to support the Korean DVD importers, this makes sure they keep putting discs up for sale on eBay, otherwise lotsa titles wouldn't be available here  Wink

I just noticed this:

http://blog.criterioncast.com/post/81376346477/carol-reeds-odd-man-out-is-now-available-for

Does anyone know if this mean Criterion will also be releasing it as a BD, or if some of their licenses are restricted to streaming only?

I actually already have the Network BD release which is great (http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Odd-Man-Out-Blu-ray/40414/) but am always curious to see what happens when Criterion get their mitts on things.

Just checked the cartoon out. This all sounds very promising.

It's going to be released in April:

Now Criterion just needs to get the rights to "The Fallen Idol" back so they can do a BD release.

Studio Canal is releasing The Fallen Idol:
