Details on the Flint Blu-rays: New Extras!
we learned that specialty label Twilight Time would be releasing the two Flint films on Blu-ray in early 2013, which was very exciting news already. Now we know more, and now these releases are even more exciting. Our Man Flint (1966) will boast all-new special features! Twilight Time has released a list of extras on their Facebook page (along with cover art), and it's pretty impressive. The disc will include an audio track with Jerry Goldsmith's complete isolated score, an audio commentary with Cinema Retro's Lee Pfeiffer and Eddie Friedfeld, the original theatrical trailer, the featurettes from The Ultimate Flint Collection DVDs "Spy Style" (6:46), "Spy-er-ama" (9:13), "Perfect Bouillabaisse" (1:28), "A Gentleman's Game" (4:15), screen tests with James Coburn and Gila Golan (4:36) and Coburn and Raquel Welch (1:53), three storyboard sequences ("Escape from Galaxy Island," "Control Room Battle" and "Escape from Armageddon"), and the all-new documentaries "Derek Flint: A Spy is Born" (24:54), "Directing Flint: Daniel Mann" (11:14) and "Flint vs Kael" (6:11). Those docs were produced by John Cork, one of the guys responsible for the amazing behind-the-scenes documentaries on the James Bond special editions, so they're bound to be good. Additionally, one of the so-called experts interviewed is a certain spy blogger well known to readers around here, so if you're dying to see what I look like in high-def, then don't hesitate to buy this release! Pre-orders for this limited edition Blu-ray of Our Man Flint begin December 19 at 4PM from exclusive vendor Screen Archive Entertainment. The disc will be out on January 15, followed by In Like Flint (which I hope will also boast new extras) on February 12. That's a great way to start the year for Sixties spy fans!
