I just received shipping confirmation for two items that I received several years ago.
I just got a similar email for an order placed in 2015. Hopefully the glitch doesn’t end up being a costly one for them.

I'm hoping they got the numbers mixed up and actually shipped the order I placed last week.

Nice, and good to have Au bonheur des dames back in print again! For the record, that's an earlier version of Poil de Carotte than the one included in the Eclipse set

That retail price is so suspiciously low for a nine film boxed set that I hurried to place an order just in case it was a mistake.

This is an English-friendly, Blu-ray-only edition of the forthcoming French combo set that I was already planning to buy. Thrilled to buy this instead!

Please tell me they’re not BD-Rs.

Its part of their regular line, so will definitely be pressed discs, and a response on their Facebook reveals it will be a five disc set.

Repeat Performance BD/DVD dual format January 24 2022

Anyone seen it?

Image
Repeat Performance, the most requested film in the early years of the Film Noir Foundation’s restoration campaign, is finally available in digital form! An amazingly original hybrid of film noir, supernatural fantasy, and backstage melodrama, the film stars Joan Leslie as a Broadway actress who magically relives the previous year of her life, but can she alter the fateful mistakes and misjudgments that led to a New Year’s Eve tragedy? Think of it as film noir’s answer to It’s a Wonderful Life or a full-length precursor to The Twilight Zone.

Produced as a rare prestige picture by fledgling Eagle-Lion Pictures, the movie features an array of vivid performances: 21-year-old Joan Leslie as Sheila Page, her first mature role following a parade of teenage ingenues at Warner Bros.; Louis Hayward as her husband Barney, a bitter and vengeful playwright; Virginia Field as Sheila’s personal and professional rival, Paula Costello; Tom Conway as suave stage producer John Friday; and Richard Basehart in his movie debut as poet William Williams, one of the era’s most sensitive depictions of a gay artist.

In the years after its 1947 release, Repeat Performance seemingly vanished. For many who’d seen it, the film’s startling premise and stunning set-pieces became merely a tantalizing memory. It fell so far off the cultural radar people began to think they’d only imagined the movie. But thanks to the dedication and diligence of the Film Noir Foundation, Repeat Performance was restored in collaboration with UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Packard Humanities Institute. And now, it lives again in a beautiful Blu-ray/DVD dual-format edition loaded with special features.

BONUS MATERIALS INCLUDE:

VIDEO INTRODUCTION by author, film historian, and “noirchaeologist” Eddie Muller who describes the film’s restoration process and puts Repeat Performance in context as part of a sub-genre of supernatural noir
VIDEO PROFILE OF JOAN LESLIE by author and film historian Farran Smith Nehme who describes the actress’ transition from teenage ingenue roles to mature adult performances
MINI-DOCUMENTARY on the history of Eagle-Lion Pictures, written and narrated by author and film historian Alan K. Rode and produced by film director and author Steven C. Smith
AUDIO COMMENTARY by film historian Nora Fiore (“The Nitrate Diva”) featuring an in-depth history of the film’s production
DIGITAL PRESS BOOK: A complete, on-disc “page turning” digital edition of the film’s original 1947 pressbook
SOUVENIR BOOKLET featuring author Brian Light’s book-to-film comparison of the original 1942 William O’Farrell novel with screenwriter Walter Bullock’s script, along with an array of original photos, lobby cards, and posters.

Isn’t this what Joan Leslie made after she butted heads with WB and they salted the earth of her star profile for literally decades after? She was one of the top movie stars of the 40s and almost no one remembers her because the studio blackout and erasure worked. The description of her is off too— like Linda Darnell, she generally played older adult roles while a teen, not teenage roles

Eddie Muller showed it on Noir Alley a couple years ago. It’s not a lost masterpiece or anything, but it’s alright. The beginning hooks you pretty quickly, but my interest dried up well before the conclusion. Louis Hayward gives a positively insane performance that fans of his will probably like but was a bit much for me.

Slant review The Bitter Stems & The Beast Must Die

Would be great if Flicker Alley release the other Argentinian noir mentioned in the review, Rosaura at 10 O'Clock.

Also, importCDs have both titles for 43% off (though both are on back order.

Thanks for the heads up on importCDs, though when I went to order both were showing as back in stock for anyone else interested. There's a 10% off coupon right now as well.

They were on backorder when I placed my order, and the TENOFF code will only work for titles in stock, alas.
