The Big Heat steams up blu-ray!

The more Fritz Lang in HD the better!  One of Lang's best American noirs will make its BD debut as a limited edition release as part of the Twilight Time line.  This is good and bad.  Twilight does excellent work and brings less commercial studio titles to the new format usually with isolated music scores.  On the downside, I sort of hoped that the archival potential of BD discs would be maximized and allow the studios to release multiple movies on a single disc at better prices.  This limited edition $30 SRP release limits the quantity of potential consumers for these type of films.  I think THE BIG HEAT is now the third U.S. Fritz Lang blu-ray.  METROPOLIS and SCARLET STREET have been previously released.  Regardless, this is a 'must-have' for fans of Lang and the film noir style.
