For the last few years, the Republic library has been owned by Lions Gate who did next to nothing with the films. Olive has a much better reputation for issuing older films, but they still have been slow in getting them on the market.
All the same, thank you for bringing the news to this board.

It'll be a very interesting time to be an Orson Welles fan with a Blu-Ray player. I can't wait to see both; their not my favorites, but it's good to have some Welles stuff available. Does anyone have any idea if there will be special features on the Macbeth BD? If so, what will there be?
