Gidget has only been available in widescreen on back channels from its TCM airings, this is good news. Great film, and not as "fun" as it sounds. Haven't seen the original Yellow Handkerchief but I've seen the William Hurt remake and that's enough for me. Bananas is pointless thanks to Arrow. Dr Doolittle and Sayonara are two of the worst films ever nominated for Best Picture

I am actually shocked that Dr. Dolittle wasn't already put out as some cheap studio release a decade ago. It's not good obviously but I'd imagine it has better name recognition than a lot of other stuff from the same period!

Sweet! I've been wanting to marathon all the 1967 Best Picture nominees and Dr. Dolittle was the only one I didn't have on blu. Also always excited to get more Woody.

Eh, sadly some of us are still region locked and often depend on these Twilight Time releases. I want to say I read on this board once the rumor that Criterion could get Bananas and Take the Money and Run; I guess that speculation is over? Is Take the Money and Run his only film to not be available on blu ray whatsoever? One of my favorites from the early years.

If something's coming from Criterion at this point it's either one of the unaccounted for 90s titles from Sony or the 4K versions of Manhattan or Annie Hall, but I'd say it's very likely neither is coming. Take the Money and Run is releasing in October - Criterion *had* it, but let it lapse and Kino picked it up, for whatever reason (it wouldn't surprise me if once the Kino release comes it shares similar source problems to the recent releases, considering that's a big reason Criterion might pass if no features are allowed!).

The Twilight Time releases are so expensive that just the cost difference of three of them vs the Arrow releases covers the cost of a decent region-free player.

I've been lucky enough to pick up most of the Twilight Time releases of Allen films that I like during half off sales or heavy discounts. Are the Arrow transfers better? Can't imagine them being much different with the source issues you mention.

If Criterion doesn't release these new transfers of Manhattan or Annie Hall, will it just be MGM again?

They probably just won't be released on disc, to be honest. I guess it's not out of the question Kino'd be interested in a bare-bones re-release, considering they've been doing a lot of that.

The Arrow transfers are better in that they're better encoded but it's an incredibly minor difference as the sources are still the same and TT's never really had a problem with encoding. I just think if you care about this stuff enough to be on this forum it's really not inconvenient at all or a massive expense to go region free!
