Gaumont Secures Funding to Restore Classic Films

French distributors Gaumont have announced that they have secured funding to restore 270 films from their catalog during the next four years. The restorations will have a minimum quality of at least 2K. Amongst the films considered for restoration are such classics as Jean Renoir's Toni (1935), Henri-Georges Clouzot's The Murderer Lives at Number 21 (1942), and Carl Theodor Dreyer's The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928).

I believe it when I see it. I hope Lucas didn't alter a scene where the shark shoots first.

these bluray announcements are indeed random.

blurays are still overpriced in Australia and too expensive to acquire from overseas unless absolutely essential, but it's nice to know there's a big selection out there somewhere.

Have you checked this one out? https://www.planetaxel.com/

Dunno if it's cheaper even though I don't know where in the world they ship the products. But just wanted to help a wee bit.
