ClassicFlix Newsletter - Volume 1, Issue 2
I, THE JURY
Officially out two weeks from today, I, The Jury (Special Limited Edition, 4K UHD/BD/3DBD Combo) has started shipping for those who have purchased the set at ClassicFlix.com. We've also cut a custom trailer which you can see below.
Reviews are already starting to come in for Jury and Matt Hough at Home Theater Forum lauds the release saying the image is "beautifully rendered with Alton’s crisp black and white photography offering endless shadows and wonderfully detailed close-ups", among other superlatives.
THE LONG WAIT
I, The Jury isn't the only Mickey Spillane sourced film that is finally being made available on home video as we can now share that next spring we'll be releasing 1954's The Long Wait. Beautifully photographed, the gripping film noir stars Anthony Quinn, Charles Coburn, Gene Evans and Peggie Castle and will be debuting on 4KUHD, Blu-ray and DVD.
THE ABBOTT AND COSTELLO SHOW - SEASON 2
Have you made it over to Kickstarter yet to support the upcoming release The Abbott and Costello Show - Season 2? If not, there are only 3 days left until the campaign ends so secure your copy today!
Like Season 1 which we released last December, Season 2 will boast stunning, new restorations that have to be seen to believed as very few, if any, 1950s TV shows look this good.
Currently the only way to pre-order Season 2 is through Kickstarter, but it will eventually be made available for wide release.
