Mirage (1965) with optional English subtitles
• Audio Commentary by Film Historians Howard S. Berger, Steve Mitchell and Nathaniel Thompson
• Animated Image Gallery
• Theatrical Trailer

B&W 108 Minutes 1.85:1 Not Rated
Gregory Peck (The Big Country), Diane Baker (Krakatoa: East of Java) and Walter Matthau (The Taking of Pelham One Two Three) star in Mirage, a psychological thriller where danger, deception and even murder lurk around every corner. Bewildered accountant David Stillwell (Peck) believes he must be suffering from some form of amnesia and enlists the help of a private detective (Matthau) to help determine his identity. Experiencing flashbacks of a disturbing past and perplexed by the woman (Baker) in his life, Stillwell struggles to make sense of his perilous situation before a murder plot ensnares him. Filmed on location in alluring New York City, Mirage is an edge-of-your-seat suspense film that remains one of the genre’s timeless classics. Directed by Edward Dmytryk (Murder, My Sweet) with a screenplay by Peter Stone (Charade), based on the novel Fallen Angel by Howard Fast (Spartacus). The sensational cast includes Kevin McCarthy (Invasion of the Body Snatchers), Jack Weston (Fuzz), Leif Erickson (Strait-Jacket), Walter Abel (13 Rue Madeleine) and George Kennedy (Thunderbolt and Lightfoot).

In the tradition of Charade and Arabesque, screen icons Rock Hudson (The Tarnished Angels) and Claudia Cardinale (Once Upon a Time in the West) co-star in this suspense-filled espionage thriller with a touch of comedy, wonderfully directed by Philip Dunne (Ten North Frederick).

On his way to Australia, frontier opportunist Jason McCullough (Garner) stumbles into a small gold-rush town and decides to earn a little extra pocket money by accepting a temporary assignment as their sheriff. Happily applying himself to his new position, McCullough manages to turn the town derelict (Elam) into his deputy, outsmart the dreaded Danby clan (led by Brennan), and fend off the lusty advances of the mayor’s daughter (Hackett)—all without breaking a sweat or dirtying his shiny black boots! Directed by western legend Burt Kennedy (Seven Men from Now), Support Your Local Sheriff is sheer entertainment from start to finish!

Hustling gigolo Latigo Smith (Garner) arrives in a mining town for an operation, but while in town he overhears that the local mining baron Taylor Baton (Morgan) is looking to hire the notorious gunman Swifty Morgan to wipe out his competition. Seizing the opportunity for an easy con, Smith passes off a reprobate cowhand, Jug (Elam), as the dreaded Swifty… with bankroll in-hand, he plans to head for the hills at first opportunity. Complicating matters are Barton’s suspicious pistol-packin’ daughter, Patience (Pleshette), and the arrival of the real Swifty Morgan (Connors). Now, can Smith come up with a scheme to save Jug’s hide, stop the mining feud and win over Patience—or will he end up blowing up the entire town! Directed by western legend Burt Kennedy (Ride Lonesome).

Kinkaid is rugged, hard-driving, militant and particularly determined to find outlaw Billy Riddle (John Ericson, Bad Day at Black Rock), a young killer with a high price on his head. Kinkaid traces Billy, takes him captive and starts the long trek to justice. However, this journey may lead him to dire consequences… a gang of cut-throats headed by Angus Keough (Richard Basehart, The Satan Bug) is pursuing them. The great John Llewellyn Moxey (The Night Stalker) directed this action-packed western co-starring Margot Kidder (The Reincarnation of Peter Proud), Gene Evans (Support Your Local Sheriff), Arthur Hunnicutt (The Spikes Gang) and iconic stuntman turned filmmaker Hal Needham (Gator).

With his real daughters unavailable, he recruits three young women with criminal backgrounds to pose as his daughters. Charity (Karen Valentine, TV’s Room 222) the career criminal, Mae (Lesley Ann Warren, Clue) the prostitute, and Ada (Sandra Dee, Gidget) the pickpocket are the “daughters” in this lusty, bawdy western-comedy. The stellar cast includes Jack Elam (Support Your Local Gunfighter), Don Stroud (Von Richthofen and Brown), Henry Jones (3:10 to Yuma), Leif Erickson (Strait-Jacket), Michael Anderson Jr. (The Sons of Katie Elder), Paul Koslo (Mr. Majestyk) and William Katt (Carrie).

Ezekiel Smith (Sammy Davis Jr., A Man Called Adam), an experienced frontier scout with a will of his own, shows up instead of Sam’s friend. Despite Sam’s bigoted reluctance, “Zeke” joins his posse. And when the posse deserts Sam after learning that the kidnappers are not deserters, but renegade Indians, Sam is left to depend solely on Zeke to help him retrieve his daughter. Julie Adams (Man of the West), Norman Alden (The Devil’s Brigade), Jim Davis (The Cariboo Trail), Leo Gordon (Tobruk), Arthur Hunnicutt (The Bounty Man) and William Katt (The Daughters of Joshua Cabe) co-star in this action-packed western directed by Earl Bellamy (Jungle Jim).

That's phenomenal news. I've been on the fence about buying MGM's DVD, so I'm glad I've waited. It's an incredibly underrated work, with each episode
being extremely well-directed, and it's got a mesmerizing Ryuichi Sakamoto score. I hope Bruce Wagner's original narrative illustration stories will come back in
print to coincide with this.

I found out the Kino edition has been postponed to a later street date, as yet unspecified, because of added material such as offering three versions of the movie.

Coming September 24th!
4 Restored Classics Directed by Ida Lupino!

Not Wanted (1949)
• Brand New 4K Restoration
• Audio Commentary by Barbara Scharres, Director of Programming at Gene Siskel Film Center with Filmmaker/Historian Greg Ford
• Trailers

B&W 91 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
In Ida Lupino’s directorial debut Not Wanted, young and naive “unwed mother” Sally Forrest’s life spirals out of control after her musician beau (Leo Penn) ditches her for an out-of-town gig, despite the presence of another man (Keefe Brasselle) determined to win her heart. After leaving Warner Brothers, legendary screen actress Ida Lupino co-founded The Filmakers, an independent production company conceived as an alternative to the dominant aesthetics of Hollywood. With the low-key, intimate Not Wanted, Lupino tackled the “taboo” topic of out-of-wedlock pregnancy, immediately venturing into terrain where big-budget mainstream fantasy-spinners feared to tread. In many ways this extraordinary first directorial effort, while uncredited, already bears the stamp of Lupino’s unique vision: the remarkable empathy felt for the lead character (Sally Forrest as the dazed, traumatized young waitress thrust into the world of unwed motherhood), the hallucinatory moments (note the amazing subjective camerawork of the childbirth sequence), and the deft location shooting (as Forrest wanders through the bus stations and boarding houses of small-town America).

Never Fear (1949)
• Brand New 2K Restoration
• Audio Commentary by Film Historian Alexandra Heller-Nicholas
• Trailers

B&W 81 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
Carol Williams (Sally Forrest, Not Wanted) is a beautiful young dancer whose body, and promising career, is suddenly crippled by polio. Carol’s dance partner and fiancé, Guy Richards (Keefe Brasselle, A Place in the Sun), wants to see her through her illness, but the angry, self-pitying Carol prefers to go it alone. Her father (Herb Butterfield, Shield for Murder) takes her to the Kabat-Kaiser Institute for rehabilitation, where she meets fellow patients like Len Randall (Hugh O’Brian, Ambush Bay) on her tough road to recovery. The second feature directed by Ida Lupino (The Hitch-Hiker), who herself had been stricken with polio as an adolescent, Never Fear is a psychologically probing look at coping with chronic illness. Co-written and co-produced by Lupino and her partner Collier Young (The Bigamist) and wonderfully shot in black-and-white by Archie Stout (Fort Apache).

The Hitch-Hiker (1953)
• Brand New 2K Restoration
• Audio Commentary by Film Historian Imogen Sara Smith
• Trailers

B&W 71 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
Beyond its cultural significance as the only classic film noir directed by a woman (screen legend Ida Lupino), The Hitch-Hiker is perhaps better remembered as simply one of the most nightmarish motion pictures of the 1950s. Inspired by the true-life murder spree of Billy Cook, The Hitch-Hiker is the tension-laden saga of two men (Edmond O’Brien and Frank Lovejoy) on a camping trip who are held captive by a homicidal drifter (the great William Talman). He forces them, at gunpoint, to embark on a grim joyride across the Mexican desert. Renegade filmmaking at its finest, The Hitch-Hiker was independently produced, which allowed Lupino and ex-husband/producer Collier Young to work from a treatment by blacklisted writer Daniel Mainwaring, and tackle an incident that was too brutal for the major studios to even consider.

The Bigamist (1953)
• Brand New 4K Restoration from the Original Camera Negative
• Audio Commentary by Film Historian Kat Ellinger
• Trailers

B&W 79 Minutes 1.66:1 Not Rated
The Bigamist is an amazingly sympathetic portrait of a figure historically given very short shrift: the title character is not only a two-timer—he’s a traveling salesman as well. But, as embodied by that perpetually pressured everyman of the 1950s, Edmond O’Brien, the bigamist comes across as a victim of his own sensitivity. Caught between two complementary spouses, O’Brien’s dazed indecisiveness dominates the narrative. As always in Ida Lupino’s directorial efforts, a strong social consciousness informs all choices: Joan Fontaine is an upper-crust “lady,” reverently attached to her dying father, while Lupino herself plays a tough-talking working woman, waitressing in a cheap Chinese restaurant. But no on-screen triangle could beat the one behind the camera—The Bigamist was produced and written by Collier Young, Lupino’s longtime collaborator and recently divorced husband, whose new wife was none other than Joan Fontaine. The wonderful cast includes Edmund Gwenn, Kenneth Tobey and Jane Darwell.

That Lupino set is a must-have. Hopefully the discs are region-free. I’ll wager there are no other editions of those films coming so region-locking them seems a bit pointless.

Is the heart of the 80-page booklet really just a ten or eleven-page Film Comment article that's been freely (and legally) available on the internet for a while?

Given that these types of sets (I.e. a collection of individual releases) usually dont come with booklets I'm fine with that.

Outrage and Beware, My Lovely are still under license to Olive Films, from Paramount. My boss had acquired them for the label when he was their head of acquisitions.

I just checked the Kino site and Bob Le Flambeur ceases to be found under any search engine. Is there a shake-up going on with the release? Or is it a site malfunction?

Edit: More than likely a site malfunction from my end.
