Paramount Titles coming to DVD (not DVD-R)

Postby MissGoddess » February 19th, 2010, 7:39 pm

I received this notice from Classicflix. An eclectic assortment of Paramount titles are coming to DVD, including Rope of Sand, a movie I haven't seen in ages but remember it being very good. I think it was a film noir, it's been so long I don't remember, lol! Here is the announcement:

Olive Films is about to make a big splash in the shrinking pool that are classic film releases on standard DVD (not DVD-R).

In new territory for the online retailer/wholesaler, Olive has confirmed that they have licensed 27 films (below) from the Paramount library. Release dates are not solid yet, but they hope to have the first batch out by June.

After June, the schedule should be three to four per month, with a ballpark of 20 out by years end.

And while they all don't fall within the scope of our site (our focus is on pre-1960 films and we don't carry any made after 1969), we'll be sure to carry a majority of them.

Stay tuned for more details...

Thanks a lot for this news, MG. Several entertaining camp classics are listed here that I never thought I'd see on DVD- among them Harlow (hopefully in widescreen!), Once is Not Enough, Where Love Has Gone.
