One of my favorite things about Facebook, my social-networking site of choice, is sharing links with friends on upcoming releases and such. However, the bad thing is that these are often links that I would have shared here instead in the early days of Moon in the Gutter. One release I couldn't not promote here though is the very exciting Kim Novak Collection that is coming out in less than a month now on August 3rd. A long-time coming for Novak devotees, of which I am a card-carrying member, this set includes remastered version of Bell, Book and Candle (my favorite), Picnic, Jeanne Eagels, Pal Joey and Middle of the Night. The set was produced with Kim's corporation and each film includes a featurette featuring an interview with her, as well as some other extras. And the cherry on top is that the set will be extremely reasonably priced for just around thirty dollars. So place a pre-order to support one of Hollywood's greatest and most enduring stars and thanks to Columbia Classics for releasing this (when many of the major companies are scaling back new sets in favor of just fancy repackages).
