'They Might Be Giants' (1972) - Blu-ray pre-order available from Powerhouse direct - £15.99

Release date: January 16

"The stellar duo of George C Scott (The Day of the Dolphin) and Joanne Woodward (The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds) headline They Might Be Giants, an eccentric and touching comedy.

Grief-stricken widower Justin Playfair begins to believe he is Sherlock Holmes. Briefly institutionalised, he teams up with his doctor – coincidentally named Watson – and, together, they follow a string of clues across New York City as they search for their elusive arch-enemy, Moriarty...

Based on a play by award-winning writer James Goldman (The Lion in Winter, Robin and Marion) and directed by Anthony Harvey (Dutchman), They Might Be Giants is an innovative reworking of Don Quixote, and is presented here in three variant cuts."

'Death Of A Gunfighter' (1969) - Blu-ray pre-order available from Powerhouse direct - £15.99

Release date: January 16

"Starring Hollywood legends Richard Widmark (Madigan) and Lena Horne (Stormy Weather) – the latter in her first dramatic role – Death of a Gunfighter is an elegiac tale of the last days of the Old West.

In Cottonwood Springs, Marshal Frank Patch kills a man in self defence. The town council, wishing to move away from frontier justice and into the modern world, decide that it's time for Patch to retire. Patch refuses, but with the dead man’s son swearing revenge, and the council refusing to take no for an answer, he senses his time might be up.

Based on a novel by Lewis B Patten, the film made history when, due to director Robert Totten’s late replacement with Don Siegel (The Lineup, Charley Varrick), the pseudonym ‘Allen Smithee’ was born, prompting critics to praise Smithee’s debut!"

'Freud' (1962) - Blu-ray pre-order available from Powerhouse direct - £15.99

Release date: January 16

"Montgomery Clift (Suddenly, Last Summer) and Susannah York (Images) star in this examination of the early career of Sigmund Freud from director John Huston (The Maltese Falcon, Fat City).

The film charts Freud’s journey from graduating medical school, to his early investigations into hysteria, hypnosis, and the analysis of dreams, and on to his formulation of the radical concepts which would underpin his psychoanalytic theory, scandalise the medical world, and change the face of the twentieth century.

Born from an epic screenplay by the philosopher and writer Jean-Paul Sartre, the film was praised for its inventive and expressionistic attempts to represent the workings of the unconscious mind."

I was going to order The Big Gundown and Remember the Night direct from Indicator but i'm pleased i didn't.

With today's news that The Big Gundown has been delayed until the ed of January it would have meant not getting Remember the Night until them as well which would have been annoying seeing as it's a Christmas film.

That Myth Magic and Mutilation box set has also been delayed again until the end of January. Pretty sure that's now a three month delay on that one.

Powerhouse is well aware of how annoying this would be, which is why they're dispatching Remember the Night on schedule regardless of whether it was originally part of a bundled order. So if you ordered it, no matter what else was in the order, you'll get it well before Christmas.

That's good to know, thanks.

Remember the Night is now dated as Dec 19th on Indicator's website.

With the Christmas post and postal strikes on top i doubt i'd get this before Christmas.

Disappointing.

If you preorder direct then you should have it delivered before release date (or at the very least - before Christmas). All my previous Indicator preorders arrived before the release date listed on their site.
