    A great line up of new releases, including the long awaited 50s dramas "The Franchise Affair" and "The Young and the Guilty".

    The Franchise affair was one of earliest films I remember watching on television, when I was a young child, and being absorbed by the plot. "The Young and the Guilty" I think had a late night screening on UK tv in the 1970s but has been unseen since then, although it was available on a VHS tape from the USA in moderate quality some years ago.

    Hopefully a nice release of "Mr Denning drives north" will follow in due course.

    I'm looking forward to ditching my poor copy of the Franchise affair for a decent print.

    Wow - some dream releases there - my wallet is heading for intensive care yet again but mustn't grumble! Being a big Roland Culver fan I'm looking forward to seeing The Hypnotist again and fantastic to see a release of Man About The House which hasn't been on tv for yonks.

    Also, The Thief of Bagdad (1940) with Conrad Veidt, Sabu & June Duprez on Blu-ray



    A triumph of film-making, The Thief of Bagdad is one of legendary producer Alexander Korda's best-loved films – and remains the benchmark for spectacular fantasy to this day. This multiple Oscar-winning film is a magical, atmospheric epic – its sumptuous art direction and beguiling special effects making it the definitive vision of the famous Arabian Nights tale. The Thief of Bagdad is featured here in a High Definition transfer from original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

    Imprisoned by the evil Grand Vizier Jaffar, Ahmad - the rightful King of Bagdad - meets young Abu, the greatest thief in the land. Together they escape and embark on a series of fantastical adventures, only just surviving a terrifying encounter with a Djinn, from whom Abu manages to extract three wishes...

    I'm forever impressed at Network's output, both televisual and cinematic, and having admired them for so long, now that I've actually started doing some occasional work for them, I feel rather proud.

    God knows how they afford the rights to retail a large majority of what can surely be only niche titles with limited sales (although I suspect, as is the case with Odeon and Renown, that in some cases "not remastering them" might save a few quid) but hopefully the more I get to work with them closely, I will find out!! All power to them, a rare diamond in today's world, and a constant reminder of a much better one.

    SomeoneAt The Door (1950) was a Hammer/Exclusive effort so I wonder if we will be getting other rarities from that stable eg Celia, Room To Let etc. Would be nice.

    Ahh... yes the 1936 film. It was too much to hope for!

    Celia would be very welcome. A really enjoyable little film.

    Does anyone know if Network ever intends to do downloads in the future? Sometimes I think I'd rather not buy any more plastic and cardboard supports when all I really want is the film itself.

    I think 'remastering' them actually helps the title because it effectively gives them a new copyright from the remastering date rather than the copyright expiring after 60 or 70 years...something like that anyway?

    I'm not sure. Though from what I gather, "they", ie the bigwigs in charge of rights law, change things every couple of years- in their own favour of course. You hear so many things it's impossible to keep track. One bloke I worked with even tried to tell me there was 'no such thing' as public domain, and had a very vocal argument with another distributor about it. It never ends.

    In UK law, practically all sound films are not in the public domain. In the US it is different ....

    Remastering does not help copywrite as far as I understand which expires 70 years after the death of the last 'creator' of the work (which includes director, producer, writer and in some cases the composer). So, titles in the 1940s will start to lose their copyright, and presumably any value, in maybe about 2050. (70 years plus 40 years for everyone associated with the film to die). By 2100 practically nothing made prior to about 1970 will be in copywrite anymore.
