Savage Messiah: Ken Russell / Re: Gothic coming to Blu-Ray

Good news.

I have one of the strangest releases of Gothic ever, the 3D version.  Of all the films to convert to 3D this seems the least likeliest.

It will be great if the new release has extras.

Ken Russell's Gothic will be released by Lionsgate through
their Vestron series. It will probably be a region A release.

Savage Messiah: Ken Russell / Re: Paul Sutton's "Talking About Ken Russell"

Received the book yesterday and I'm very, very impressed by it. It cost me 95 quid but it was definitely worth it. Don't know what to say, really... It's fantastic! Just been reading about "Song of Summer" and "The Boy Friend", two of my favourites by Ken, and the chapters about them were chock-full of interesting facts and great photos. Every fascinating anecdote I came across made me want to put the book down and re-watch the films right away. That's the highest praise I can give a book about film.

I'm ALMOST considering getting the latest, expanded version now...  :-[ :o

Savage Messiah: Ken Russell / Lisi Russell interview

For anyone's interest, John Clague's amateur 16mm colour newsreel film that had been showing on muted loop at Herne Bay Museum in 2014 as part of the French Dressing at 50 exhibition has now gone to Screen Archive South East in Brighton, providing public access.

It shows Ken and the crew in production at Herne Bay in May - June 1963.

An online preview version complete with Mr Clague's original sound track on reel to reel tape is now viewable at http://screenarchive.brighton.ac.uk/detail/11761/ (the sequence begins at 05:29)

Aware of many other amateur cine films taken of the production unfolding in Herne Bay that once existed but it may unfortunately be that John's is the only surviving and the only in colour respectively. Thanks to Andrew Clague and Tim Jones at Canterbury Christ University for rescuing this archive and allowing public access for future generations.
