They are ATTACK OF THE 50 FT. WOMAN (1958) and THE NIGHT OF THE IGUANA (1964).

This sounds like a monster movie double bill.

Well maybe it is, but very different kinds of monsters.

If someone thinks to pick up Iguana to go with Attack, they are likely to be sorely disappointed.

I haven’t seen either of the films being released in December, but I’m honestly more interested in Iguana for Richard Burton among other things.

As for potential releases next year, there are so many good possibilities that I scarcely know where to begin listing my hopes. One good thing Mr. Feltenstein mentioned in the podcast posted a few posts up is the fact that the Archive has received an upgraded scanner capable of scanning 65mm, so hopefully we can see some of those 65mm films in their possession such as the much-requested Ryan’s Daughter (even though it’s not my favorite of the Lean epics) or even Cheyenne Autumn (for the 100th Anniversary celebration) released next year.

The Night of the Iguana has an AMAZING cast and Burton is well-matched with everyone.

Yes, but with a movie it's always just a case of; do you like it or not, it doesn't matter about the cast or director. I'll happily pass on The Night of the Iguana, very good release that I'm sure it is, & hope there's some releases next year that I'd love. The trouble is that Warner has such a mountain of films that they could release a lot of great classic movies next year, none of which interest me. Oh well, I already have a ton of discs to watch (& a Chinese Wall of unwatched TV box sets), & now Netflix, so I'm spoiled for choice.
