The R1 & R2 Fox Studio Classics, Cinema Classics & Cinema Reserve Thread

According to www.thedigitalbits.com:

"There's some more great new Fox news as well today. In addition to My Darling Clementine, which we mentioned on Friday, 20th Century Fox is also releasing The Diary of Anne Frank (on 2/4), Peyton Place (3/2) and The Grapes of Wrath (4/6) as part of their Studio Classics series. All will have audio commentary and Movietone newsreel footage."

The Grapes of Wrath at last; almost makes up for the (mysterious) cancellation of Laura.

I wonder if Fox will bring forward plans for their rumoured Fox Studio Classics release of Viva Zapata! in view of the demise of Elia Kazan?

So many films, so little time...

I doubt that Ed Harris & Amy Madigan will be rushing to get their copy somehow

Over on the HTF, leading lights have talked with Fox and they can confirm that Laura has been postponed, not cancelled. They hope to have the disc out next year now.

Other great movies that are likely to appear under the Fox Studio Classics banner next year:

The Enemy Below, Drums Along The Mohawk, Planet of the Apes and the silent classic Sunrise may get a release on its own at last.

These insiders received official info from Fox? If so, where is the official announcement by Fox?

So "The Enemy Below" is to get the Studio Classics treatment now? Originally it was to be released as part of the War Series.

Yes Oscar I've read that thread. But I don't see any one who posts there saying that "20th Century Fox officially announces that "Laura" has been postponed until xx/xx/2xxx". If their inside knowledge is so "official", then why has not Fox made an announcement? Perhaps there will be an "official" announcement during the upcoming chat.

That may still be so; on reflection I think I've misinterpreted a quote in the thread Oscar posted a link to above and it will, in fact, be released in the War Series and not as a title in the FSC; thanks for pointing that out Jeff.

It is a darn good war film. Giving it Studio Classic status would have been a bit much, but not unappreciated by me. There are more deserving films.

This is SO annoying! "Laura" was the one I was waiting for! Hope they have a decent reason for bumping it so soon to release date. I don't get why no one can get a statement with a reason? Was really looking forward to it as well.

Will be great to have "Peyton Place" released though

Extras for The Diary of Anne Frank will include:

Commentary by George Stevens Jr. & Millie Perkins;
Diary of Anne Frank: Echoes from the past;
Diary of Anne Frank excerpt from George Stevens;
George Stevens Press Conference;
Millie Perkins Screentest;
Nobel Peace Prize to Belgian Priest;
Academy Award Highlights;
Theatrical Trailer;
International Trailer;
Stills Gallery.


It looks like The Planet of the Apes is being released simply as a two-disc SE and not under the Fox Studio Classics banner, and as for Sunrise, R2 is to get it's own 2-disc edition - click here .

Not sure if this is new information or not, but I received the press release for The Ox-Bow Incident today which fleshes out the extra features with proper descriptions. The confirmed extras are:

# Commentaries by Western scholar Dick Eulain and actor William Wellman Jr.
# "Henry Fonda: Hollywood's Quiet Hero" - as seen on Biography on the A&E Network
# Restoration comparison
# Theatrical Trailer
# Still Gallery

Updated DVDTimes story

Nice; those A&E biographies are excellent - this will make an excellent companion to My Darling Clementine.

Is the R2 going to have more extras than the R1?
