The thing is, it's a very cluttered marketplace. I want all the Signal One, all the Powerhouse, all the MOC, all the Arrow etc titles...but there is no way I could afford them all.

I do hope they manage to honour this upcoming line-up, because 5 of the included titles have been postponed for more than a year already.

All of those were mentioned elsewhere by James before except for Houdini which is interesting (it's a Paramount title).

From what I've heard, Nightmare Alley and The Gunfighter are the definite priorities for the label. I get the impression he's hoping Fire Sale and Next Stop Greenwich Village will go down well whenever they actually get released, but the rest are very much reliant on those 'bigger' titles selling well (and the catalogue in general). It's a shame to see such a decent label struggling but I very much hope things pick up for him in the next 6-9 months!

PS: I would buy loads in that sale but I actually own basically every S1 title. A shame they didn't include Plan B stuff, as I was interested in The Sheriff of Fractured Jaw.

I just picked up the Plan B release of Boston Strangler and it didn't have a booklet. Does anyone know if earlier pressings came with one?

They don’t do booklets I don’t think.

Ok thanks, because otherwise it seems like the caliber of a release that would tend to have one.

I’m not sure that any of my Signal One releases have booklets.

Firestarter from Plan B has a 24-page booklet. But that's the only exception so far, if I remember right. Their upcoming Nightmare Alley will include a 28-page booklet, too.

Unfortunately the market is tough right now, and things such as HMV going into administration definitely put a damper on things. Have been told first-hand that all other titles other than Nightmare Alley and The Gunfighter have been put on indefinite hold for now (including Red Rock West, which I was really looking forward to).

It's a shame as I recently watched The Boston Strangler disc and that has to be one of the best blind-buys I've made in the past 6 months; great film, perfect transfer and encode, excellent extras. What more could you want? I own nearly every S1 and Plan B disc released so far, and none of them have been a disappointment.
I’ve just finished Boston Strangler and I’m very happy with the film and its presentation. How many serial killer movies approach “pure cinema” once the killer has been apprehended? Fleischer and DoP Kline’s experiments with split screen/diopter, associative editing, layering, really depeens what appeared to be an effectively drab film about sad, sick men and failures in the police procedural process.

Was this based on the same transfer as the Carlotta or the Twilight Time, I’m curious? As both used different colour temperatures.

Definitely looking to get Signal One/Plan B’s other Fleischer discs, Mr Majestyk, Compulsion, and Between Heaven & Hell.

It is the same transfer as the TT, so different to the older master used by Carlotta.

Awesome, thanks for letting me know. I was hoping it would be the same as the TT.

So, have there any been any updates concerning their upcoming releases? Is the upcoming Nightmare Alley still happening or can we expect another delay? It's one of my favorite noirs hopefully the December date is final.

Nothing on their Facebook page at all since May, so not a good sign.

I haven’t been asked to deliver the final mix of the commentary yet.

(Although, credit where it’s very much due, it was paid for in full over a year ago.)

Can labels do the equivalent of subletting their licenses? If so, surely Signal One could get ahold of some quick cash by letting go of some of the announced but unreleased Fox titles they’re sitting on and focusing on using those funds to pay for pressing and releasing one or two MIA titles, right? I kind of suspect it’s not that easy, but this was “getting ridiculous” a year ago, now it’s just bad farce

They don't have any of them anymore, aside from 3 titles.

Back in August, they shared this post on blu-ray.com:
Hi Guys,

Another update for you and not one some of you will like.

I can confirm that we will now only be releasing the following films in Q1 next year.

Nightmare Alley
The Razors Edge (1946)
Fire sale (1977)

All the other films I announced last year will not be released via signal one and are now back with Fox to license to someone else.

I’ll keep you updated on extras as they are confirmed for these films. Nightmare alley will be packed with extras but the other 2 might just have a commentary only.

Thanks again for all the support

Well, at least that frees up the Gunfighter and Halls of Montezuma... though I wish I hadn’t sold my DVDs when they were announced! Thanks for the info

Or, more likely, you know... not.
