Twilight Time will be releasing The Chase on Blu-Ray on October 11th.
"The Chase (1966) is all-star in every department, with Arthur Penn (Bonnie and Clyde) directing from a Lillian Hellman adaptation of a Horton Foote play, and a cast including the sterling likes of Marlon Brando, Jane Fonda, Robert Redford, E.G. Marshall, Angie Dickinson, Janice Rule, Robert Duvall, and James Fox. The film focuses on a small, corrupt Texas town where a prison break exposes local secrets, lies, and violence. Also featuring an astonishing John Barry score, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track."

On 30th September, John Barry's "Raise The Titanic" score will become the first in a new series of Silva Screen vinyl releases for the serious soundtrack collector.
The series will include scores of outstanding quality that for some reason or another exist in their best form as a recording made subsequently to the original soundtrack.
The film of Raise The Titanic was panned by both critics and audiences alike upon its release in 1980. However, although the music was almost universally admired, the masters were either lost or destroyed.
When Silva Screen embarked upon a series of recreations of previously unavailable Barry scores -- masterminded by Nic Raine & James Fitzpatrick -- Raise The Titanic proved a very popular release, selling thousands of copies on CD.
Now aficionados of John Barry and/or Raise The Titanic have the opportunity to own a vinyl version of this classic score, hopefully for a sensible price!
On October 14th, Sony will release a budget-priced 3-CD box-set: "The Real .... John Barry."
It's similar in content to the previous Sony box-set, Themependium, but includes at least one track that wasn't on that one: Theme from "Romance for Guitar and Orchestra". There may also be two versions of "The Ipcress File".
It appears this time all the vocals included on Themependium have been omitted, and we must hope that "Sleep Well My Darling" & "Mary, Queen of Scots" have been properly remastered!
It's a pity they have apparently not included the "b" side version of The Lion In Winter featuring Alan Haven, but then, I don't suppose they knew about it.

We are very sad to report that John's elder sister, June, died on 19th July, aged 86. She had been suffering from dementia for the last few years, but appeared in public in 2011 at a York concert held in memory of her brother's life and career.
Mrs Lloyd Jones was a talented oil-painter who often exhibited locally. Her husband, David was a potter of some renown, the couple having met at Guildford School of Art. Previously, like John, June had attended the Bar Convent School, before studying at York School of Art.
June and David married in York in 1955 and had four children: Simon, Caroline, Emma and Abigail. June had been widowed since the passing of her husband in 1994.
"Please note: This was screened in July 2016."
"Join us for the world premiere of this new restoration of the ultimate dysfunctional family drama The Lion In Winter, the centrepiece of Cinema Rediscovered's tribute to the late cinematographer Douglas Slocombe."
