Indicator September Releases

Region Free UK Blu-rays

Indicator, a boutique British video label from Powerhouse Films, have announced three upcoming blu-ray releases for September — The Chase (1966), See No Evil (1971), and a three-disc box set, The Wonderful Worlds of Ray Harryhausen, Vol. 1: 1955-1960, which will include It Came from Beneath the Sea (1955), 20 Million Miles to Earth (1957), and The 3 Worlds of Gulliver (1960).

Although these are being released in the U.K., all of the titles are listed as Region Free, so they will play in blu-ray players worldwide.  Usually, Indicator’s titles are available through Amazon, DiabolikDVD and other U.S. retailers.  If their highly-praised previous Sinbad Trilogy: Limited Edition [Blu-ray] box set is any indicator (get it), these should be excellent releases.

Below are the details directly from the Indicator website:

THE CHASE
£15.99

(Arthur Penn, 1966)
Release date: 25 September 2017
Limited Dual Format Edition (UK Blu-ray premiere)

Preceding Bonnie and Clyde by a year, Arthur Penn’s (Mickey One) acclaimed film boasts enviable pedigree – produced by the legendary Sam Spiegel, with a screenplay by Lillian Hellman from the novel by Horton Foote, a rousing score by John Barry, and a stellar cast of the hottest stars of the day (including Marlon Brando, Jane Fonda, Robert Redford, Angie Dickinson and James Fox). The story of an escaped con making his way back to the corrupt Texas town and the people who sent him to prison, The Chase is a telling indictment of violence in American society. A seminal work which is ripe for rediscovery.
