CineSavant Column

No astonishing links to trumpet today, not even any so-so or mediocre links! But we do have plenty of reviews on the way. Kino Lorber will be showing up on most every post, it has so many winners; Charlie Largent is working on Konga and The Magic Sword as we speak. There are some winners that I’m not expecting screeners for, but I do have commitments that will allow me to review some upcoming greats, like Film Movement’s Fritz Lang’s Indian Epic Films, Criterion’s Until the End of the World, Flicker Alley’s Trapped and Scream Factory’s The Abominable Snowman of the Himalayas.

And thanks go out to Bob Furmanek for forwarding the inside documentation from The Bellboy and the Playgirls, especially Francis Coppola’s employment documents. Thanks also to Gary Teetzel for conducting those trade paper searches for reading material about our old genre favorites — the reader response has been encouraging.

Thanks for reading! — Glenn Erickson
