Savant Column

More Twilight Time, Kino Lorber and ClassicFlix titles just in — expected reviews soon could be TT’s The Captain from Castile with Tyrone Power and The Pirates of Blood River with a black-clad Christopher Lee, looking as mean as a snake. Plus Twilight has Michael Caine in the superb Play Dirty, and I’m already eyeing The Selznick Since You Went Away, and the Jim Thompson adaptation This World, Then the Fireworks from Kino. ClassicFlix has new noirs on the way, but I’ve doubled back on their restored special editions for the ‘Foggy Poole’ epic The Killer is Loose and a Bette Davis picture, Another Man’s Poison. Plus from Lionsgate, I’m eager to spin the Manga-derived Anime In This Corner of the World.

I have notes wanting to hear about the Warner Archive’s The Green Slime and Severin’s The Devil’s Rain. Plus readers aren’t letting me get away with hinting at a review for a Region B disc of Colossus: The Forbin Project. I think it behooves me to make good on my promise for that one.

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend — — Glenn Erickson
