I hadn't heard anything about that Our Hospitality release. Where can I learn more about that? There are too many rival Keatons coming out.

Those are far better extras than Cohen’s releases have had.

This is true but it's a shame Kino didn't carry the 49 minute alternate workprint cut of the film over to their new release. Still worth holding onto your old Kino Keaton blus if you got 'em.

EDIT: Regarding the other extras, The Iron Mule is more relevant than that synopsis lets on. It was directed by Fatty Arbuckle but he didn't take credit as he was in the midst of his blacklisting and it even has a little Keaton in it but he is also uncredited. Also, the French short as far as I can tell is actually a rarity and has never been released on any of the previous Keaton releases (unless I'm overlooking it). That alone will make this a must-buy for me (but I'll also keep the old Kino and get the inevitable Cohen--this may end up being the most represented film in my disc collection, just edging out Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein).

Very true. The Cohen's sole drawback have been the utter lack of extras. And I haven't thrown out my old Kino Keaton Blu-rays. But Kino/Lobster's washed out overbrightened release of the Keaton shorts has made me very wary of what they do.

On the other hand, the Cohen/Ritrovata 4K restorations are tremendous. Technically speaking, I wished Lobster to have the funds to do what Cohen is doing, but it just doesn't seem to be the case.

We're working on it, early next year. BTW, we never announced or confirmed this, so not sure why you're asking "What happened...?"

Kino is putting out Claude Sautet's Max and the Junkmen. Hope this means
they licensed other films from the StudioCanal box set from a couple years back.

Here we go again: KL apparently used the old 2011 master of Kind Hearts and Coronets instead of the new 2019 one SC has put out on Blu in the UK— so there’s a title where KL can say their release is different from the equivalent UK disc!
