It just depends on what you'd like more of:

More Bernie Ohls (Regis Toomey)? 1945.
More Lauren Bacall? 1946.



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

Looks like this is going to be an essential purchase: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CJCQG3G?dpID=51r-E%2B2TLlL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_SL500_SR110%2C135_&refRID=PW92GB92DJ033GVBJ0YV&ref_=pd_rhf_eetyp_s_cp_27

After having to endure crappy transfers of this PD title, it will be a pleasure to see the improved images. I love that bit with the accelerator in the back seat.

I once rented the dvd but it was such bad quality that I had to turn it off after like 15 minutes. Never saw the rest of the movie.

Bad news, I'm afraid. This is what was in today's Film Noir Foundation newsletter:
Quote
Olive Films will release a Blu-ray edition of Try and Get Me! (1951) on April 19óbut, just so everyone knows (and we've been asked a lot!) this Olive release is not produced from the FNF's 2012 restoration and contains no special features.
Cancel my order!

I have pre-ordered IN A LONELY PLACE, 99 RIVER STREET, and THE CHASE (I have not yet seen THE CHASE).

But DARK PASSAGE is a shitty movie; I don't plan on ever watching it again.

Even if you end up not liking it, you'll still have had another chance to ogle Michele Morgan.

The Chase we are discussing was directed by Arthur Ripley.

The new Blu of The Chase (1946): http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film5/blu-ray_reviews_71/the_chase_blu-ray.htm

The screen caps look really good.

And even though Olive didn't use the Film Noir Foundation's restoration, the screen caps for this look really, really good, so I may have to renew my order: http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film5/blu-ray_reviews_71/try_and_get_me_blu-ray.htm

At last, it finally looks like film again.
