Twilight Time Blu-ray release of Our Man Flint, the first of two Derek Flint superspy capers starring James Coburn. It's supposed to come out in mid-January, with the sequel, In Like Flint, to follow in February. I'll probably pre-order that one, too. Because these discs are only issued in limited numbers, I can't really follow my usual method of buying used discs cheap on the secondary market; when these suckers go out of print, the price only goes up.
So, why did I bite the bullet on this one? Well, first of all, I'm a huge fan of the movie, and even though I have the very nice Ultimate Flint Collection
DVDs that Fox put out a few years ago, this Blu-ray has a buttload of
new bonus features, including a couple of new documentaries by John Cork
- the guy who put together all the great documentaries on the James
Bond and Charlie Chan discs. Ultimately, I just couldn't pass it up.
What can I say? I'm weak.
