Don’t worry folks. This isn’t a Twilight related news article. We don’t do that here on The Criterion Cast. Instead it’s the exciting news that specialty DVD label Twilight Time has partnered with 20th Century Fox to release limited edition versions of many of their films. Similar to what the Warner Archive does, Twilight Time will be taking films from Fox’s archives and pressing a run of 3000 DVDs from a restored transfer. All releases are to include an 8 page booklet with an essay, stills and poster art. Some releases will even have an isolated score, all for $19.99.
Right now you can order the wonderfully under-seen John Huston spy thriller The Kremlin Letter (1970) at Screen Archives. Right now for pre-order is the Richard Fliescher film Violent Saturday (1955) and soon enough will have Fate Is the Hunter (1964), Woman Obsessed (1959), and The Egyptian (1954). Films that most people haven’t seen (or heard of for that matter) is always an amazing thing, and this label will be giving us film fans more time in front of the TV and finding some gems we never knew existed. We have everyone from Lee Marvin, Glenn Ford, Susan Hayward and Jean Simmons features in these films and in a variety of genres.
‘We are embracing this opportunity to engage the film enthusiast, by providing long sought-after collectible and fully restored titles in their original aspect ratios manufactured to the highest quality available and at a very affordable price,’ said Brian Jamieson and Nick Redman, founders of Twilight Time.
