It does explain why the account reads like some 19 year old Redditor’s posts
Well you'll be excited to know they've added reviewing movies they're not even releasing to their catalog of responses.

Forgive if this is asked too frequently, but does Sold Out necessarily mean Out Of Print?

They aren't on Kino Lorber's site anymore, so I think they're gone gone

Yes, OOP once they are sold out at Kino's website. One should be able to find copies at online retailers for a little while, but they'll likely become difficult to find pretty quickly.

Heads-up for those with AMEX cards: For some reason Kino Lorber's store is tagged as a small local business in AMEX's system, so you can get $5 off $10 for using your card on their site via AMEX's current promotion!

Did we miss that there’s now a fourth Noir volume with Calcutta, An Act of Murder, and Six Bridges to Cross? Haven’t seen Bridges but the other two are pretty bad. I feel like anyone here could have picked better Noir titles from Universal’s vault, but I guess that’s why they’re slopping these all together

Interesting remark from KL Insider regarding Dreamchild
A few years ago it was picked up by another label, so I don't know what happened to it.
I thought Twilight Time *may* have hinted at it? Damn shame that no one has released this gem on Blu.

Three more sold out titles:

52 Pick-Up (1986) (DVD still available)
No Man's Land (1987)
The Scar (aka Hollow Triumph) (1948) (DVD still available)[/b])

Other PD companies have BD releases of The Scar (aka Hollow Triumph) available.

Per KL Insider, they got ~30 copies of the BD of The Wicked Lady returned to them as a wholesale return, so that will go OOP again when those sell out.

Saw this on Howard S. Berger's FB Profile from Friday about the audio commentary for DIARY OF A MAD HOUSEWIFE:
Had a blast this morning recording audio commentary alongside Larry Karaszewski and Steve Mitchell for what, for all of us, appears to be a formative masterclass on late 1960s screenwriting and direction - an immaculate cinematic conception if ever there was: Frank and Eleanor Perry’s DIARY OF A MAD HOUSEWIFE (1970)!!! The Kino Lorber Studio Classics Blu-ray drops soon!

Surprised to see Red Ball Express coming up. I never thought I'd see a blu ray of that underrated movie. Now, if only KL studio Classics can release Silver Lode, D.O.A., No Man of Her Own and Romance of a Horse Thief on blu ray, and I'll be all set for American movies.

Unfortunately, that's the 1932 film (which I haven't seen), rather than the 1950 Mitchell Leisen movie with Barbara Stanwyck. The Stanwyck film was at some point considered to be released on blu ray, but it never happened.

As for Silver Lode, I guess I can only dream. That's probably a movie that needs restoration, I bet.

Olive was supposed to release No Man of Her Own; it's Paramount, so Kino won't be releasing it any time soon, as you probably know. D.O.A.'s public domain as you also probably know -- if it hasn't come out yet in better-than-PD quality, I wouldn't take that as a great sign. There are only four American movies unavailable on BD you want to get a release?

There is a non-crappy DOA out there, from Image IIRC.

• Reversible Art

From John Sturges, the acclaimed director of Bad Day at Black Rock, Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, The Magnificent Seven, The Great Escape, The Satan Bug and Ice Station Zebra, comes this action-packed western starring screen greats Clint Eastwood (For a Few Dollars More, Two Mules for Sister Sara) and Robert Duvall (The Godfather, Tender Mercies). During a land war in New Mexico at the turn of the century, an ex-bounty hunter (Eastwood) reluctantly helps a wealthy landowner (Duvall) and his henchmen track down a Mexican revolutionary leader (John Saxon, The Appaloosa). Beautifully shot by Bruce Surtees (High Plains Drifter, Night Moves) with a rousing score by Lalo Schifrin (Dirty Harry, Bullitt) and a wonderful screenplay by Elmore Leonard (3:10 to Yuma, Hombre), Joe Kidd features the top-notch acting skills of Duvall and the rugged charm of Eastwood as a hired gun who takes action based on his own particular sense of justice. The stellar supporting cast includes Don Stroud (Coogan’s Bluff), Paul Koslo (Mr. Majestyk), Gregory Walcott (Prime Cut) and Dick Van Patten (High Anxiety). Joe Kidd is loaded with gunfights, conflicts, and a slam-bang finale which has a locomotive being driven through a saloon.

The Sign of the Cross (1932)
• NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historian Mark A. Vieira, co-author of Cecil B. DeMille
• NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historian David Del Valle
• Theatrical Trailer
• Dual-Layered BD50 Disc
• Optional English Subtitles

B&W 126 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
From Cecil B. DeMille, the legendary director of Cleopatra, Reap the Wild Wind, Samson and Delilah and The Ten Commandments, comes this classic and turbulent biblical tale starring screen greats Fredric March (The Eagle and the Hawk), Claudette Colbert (Bluebeard’s Eighth Wife) and Charles Laughton (Witness for the Prosecution). Ancient Rome comes to life on a grand scale in the epic spectacular The Sign of the Cross. In the year 64 A.D., the corrupt and maniacal Emperor Nero Claudius Caesar (Laughton) torches the city so he can blame the ensuing destruction on the unsuspecting Christians. Meanwhile, Roman Prefect Marcus Superbus (March) falls for an innocent and beautiful Christian maiden, Mercia (Elissa Landi, The Count of Monte Cristo). When the seductive and wicked Empress Poppaea (Colbert) learns that she has a romantic rival for Marcus’s attentions, she conspires with Nero to send all Christians to a chilling death. Filled with some of the most outrageous and breathtaking scenes ever filmed, including the infamous “milk bath,” this pre-Code classic is a dynamic testament to DeMille’s visionary style. The great Karl Struss (Sunrise) received an Oscar nomination for his stunning cinematography.

"Almost amusingly, with the higher resolution you can see the Pre-Code 'nakedness', debauchery and bondage more easily - not to mention Joyzelle Joyner and Claudette Colbert's seductiveness. Delicious!"

Never change, Gary.

Any guesses who they could be? WB or Sony, maybe? Though I could see WB being conservative but Sony would surely be fine with a huger deal like Universal or SC

Oh, I don't know much, so I appreciate hearing what you know. I did know D.O.A. is public domain, but I didn't remember it was Olive that planned to release No Man of Her Own. But yes, there aren't too many American movies I want to own. But there are a lot of movies from Japan, Hong Kong, China, India, South Korea, France, Slovakia, Hungary, Italy and Brazil I'd like to see on blu ray. I mean, Red Ball Express was already getting pretty far down the list of American movies I'd like to see in HD. I suppose I might add Chan is Missing to my little list of U.S. movies I'd like to see on blu ray...does Zabriskie Point count? But I can't think of many other American films that aren't out somewhere, that I care too much about. There's quite a few films like Written on the Wind and The Reckless Moment that I have on blu ray from France or the U.K.––I count those as having been released. So that's how that list comes together.

Of the big studio options of Paramount, Sony, Disney, Warner and Lionsgate I'm leaning Sony myself. I'm really hoping it's Disney or Warner though, due to the size of their catalogs that are unreleased.

A Kino deal with Warner Bros. would basically be like getting twice as many Warner Archive discs, with the same inconsistency in the quality of titles but some of them now have Kat Ellinger commentaries.

Could totally see Kino releasing a ton of MGM silents, especially if the elements weren't up to snuff for full blown restorations.
