High Time coming out on Blu-ray

See http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/High-Time-Blu-ray/45342/
Looks like it is Blu-ray only and not DVD!

Early indications of the death of DVD? Each new technology seems to have a shorter life span!

When a format begins to die, it is a good predictor that I will start buying more of it.   ;)

Re: High Time coming out on Blu-ray

I refuse to buy blu ray unless they release EVERY Bing film on it - and I mean every one...even his cameo appearances in the Hope movies.

I still have some video so I am way behind the times.

Re: High Time coming out on Blu-ray

Quite a reasonable review of the Blu-Ray ''High Time'' in the New York Post here -

Re: High Time coming out on Blu-ray

I hadn't checked for a while, but I see now that this has been released and is available from Screen Archives Entertainment
both from their site:
http://www.screenarchives.com/title_detail.cfm/ID/20583/HIGH-TIME-1960/

and from them via Amazon marketplace for essentially the same price (taking shipping into account):
http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00942TX26/ref=dp_olp_0?ie=UTF8&condition=all

Nice to be able to go through Amazon and not have to set up yet another on-line account.
How many Crosbyphiles will be dragged kicking and screaming into the Blu-ray age? But I'm already there, and the players still support DVD. It's not really clear to me whether they are really completely replacing DVDs, although I do see a fair number of Blu-rays at Cosco now, which is a fair indication they are mainstream now. But both formats are competing against video-on-demand.

Re: High Time coming out on Blu-ray

Has any one any knowledge of other Bing movies on Blu-Ray? I know of ''White Christmas'' (also on DVD of course) but cannot find any other.

''High Time'' it seems is only available on Blu-Ray, which looks like an unusual approach to marketing. I don't have a copy in any form but I doubt I will get a Blu Ray player purely on that account.

I've been through too many generations of audio formats to want to plunge into another video format as well.

Re: High Time coming out on Blu-ray

"White Christmas" is the only other Bing movie I know of on Blu-Ray.

It does seem unusual to release "High Time" only on Blu-Ray. I suspect they only expected enough sales to justify release in one format, but given the target market, I would have thought DVD would have been a better choice.

I wouldn't recommend buying a Blu-Ray player for one movie! But the nice thing is that Blu-Ray players can play DVDs. So, if you need to replace your DVD player, since Blu-Ray player prices have come down a lot, it's probably worth considering buying one, so you can play both formats.

Re: High Time coming out on Blu-ray

I have recently bought a blu-ray player that could play USA blu-ray discs and I quickly bought "High Time". I have just watched the film from beginning to end, the first time I have done that in many years. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a charming film and Bing still had a lot to give at that stage of his career. Seeing it in High Definition really helps too.

Re: High Time coming out on Blu-ray

I guess I'll be getting this one now. I have blu-ray players. I favor my Panasonic one, it even has am and fm radio! I had trouble with the LG one. I'm not crazy about that movie but maybe I will like it better on blu-ray. I remember not liking Say One For Me but when I got the recent dvd with the clearer picture, I enjoyed it.

Re: High Time coming out on Blu-ray

Wow! That's a lot of money. I'll hold out, maybe another store will have it at a more reasonable price.
