And Kino Lorber has announced that Joseph M. Newman’s Fort Massacre (1958) and The Gunfight at Dodge City (1959) are coming soon to Blu-ray. Also coming soon to both Blu-ray and DVD are Andre de Toth’s Pitfall (1948), Peter Yates’ The House of Carroll Street (1988), Lewis Allen’s A Bullet for Joey (1955), and Robert Florey’s The Crooked Way (1949). And coming soon on DVD only, look for Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins (1985) for the first time in anamorphic widescreen. (The Blu-ray version will eventually be available from Twilight Time.)

That’s all for now. Stay tuned!
