The last one, although you can't go wrong with either of the others, I think (I've not seen High Sierra so I can't say for sure.)

Wow!

All great, but The Magnificent Ambersons on the big screen is too rich an opportunity to pass.

I can't disagree, but They Live By Night is the one that ain't on DVD/VHS.

Is Ambersons currently on DVD? I know it has been, but I think it is out-of-print right now.

twelve years pass...

So looks like Criterion is releasing The Magnificent Ambersons at some point this year. My question is ....did they find the original cut??????

Yeah, it was buried under a U.K. motorway alongside The Wicker Man.

They're probably gonna include stills and the shooting script, because the footage is long gone.

Good viewing for tonight. Or if you're an optimist, save it for three or four weeks from now.

Now it came at last. George Amberson Minafer had got his comeuppance. He got it three times filled, and running over.
