Commentary by Redman/Kirgo/Seydor listened to--not something I ever want to sit through again. Well, at least I had really pretty pictures to watch. I haven't listened to the director's commentary yet, but I remember it from the LD days (that makes it 20 years old at least!). Then there's the isolated score--man, when am I gonna have time for all this?

Image-wise, the new TT is fabulous.

I liked Frankenheimer's commentary just fine. No need for the interlopers.

You can still get it from Screen Archives for $35. TCM doesn't have this in 1080p.

Groggy missed his chance. The TT Blu is officially sold out. Don't worry, though, Grogs, I can always let you have mine  . . .  for $500. Let me know when you want me to send it!

Do you think Frankenheimer is upset that "John Frankenheimer's The Train" is now just "The Train" on TT's release? Michael Cimino secured "Michael Cimino"s Heaven's Gate" on the CC release, although maybe that's just to avoid confusion with the religious cult?

Isn't it Burt Lancaster's The Train?

Or who else fired Arthur Penn?

The difference between a live director and a dead one. The live ones have more clout.

Sure, but this is the guy who could have had it for half that if he'd pulled the trigger before yesterday. For some reason, I'm thinking he won't pay the 70 . . . he'll wait until the price climbs up high enough that no one will touch it. And then, after he makes his millions, he'll come looking for things to buy. And my price will be attractive.
