Deal Alert: Kino Lorber is throwing a "Customer Thank You" sale on many of their Blu-ray editions. With the distributor amping up their catalog of classic serials, mysteries, and spy adventures, Kino has been on my radar a lot lately! The current sale includes cool titles such as Modesty Blaise ($7.49), The High Commissioner ($8.99), OSS 117 Five-Film Collection ($24.99), Shalako (with Sean Connery, Brigitte Bardot, Honor Blackman, $8.99), The Sicilian Clan ($9.99), Thunderbirds Are Go! Thunderbirds 6 double feature ($8.49), What's New Pussycat ($8.99), and When Eight Bells Toll ($8.99). Kino's website has also listed smaller discounts on some excellent classics like the original Fantomas, Les Vampires, Adventures of Captain Marvel, and Daredevils of the Red Circle serials. If you only get one, however, I suggest picking up the OSS 117 collection. It's probably my favorite vintage spy-related purchase this year. Happy viewing! In other news, check out my episodes of Cocktail Nation radio as I introduce some of the great spy classics and soundtracks: Episode #1 (Danger Man) and Episode #2 (The 10th Victim), Epsiode #3 (On Her Majesty's Secret Service), Episode #4 (Roger Moore/The Saint), and Episode #5 (The Avengers), Episode #6 (The Prisoner), and Episode #7 (The Ipcress File), Episode #8 (The Man From U.N.C.L.E.). Enjoy!
