re: "...will only be available for three days?" - I only relay what they write. I'll hope that things aren't so dumb, but hard to say. I will also mention that I've noticed these haven't been 100% correct in the past, which has surprised me a bit.

Nice. All those Pedro Almodóvars. I could see Criterion start cranking them out on disc much like they did with the Fassbinders.

In a Lonely Place
The Virgin Suicides
Baby Face
In a Better World
Hedwig and the Angry Inch
Bugsy Malone
Ace in the Hole
Buena Vista Social Club
Hollywood Shuffle
To Sleep with Anger
Paths of Glory
Mildred Pierce
Mulholland Dr.
Pushover
Jubal

...Plus what looks like all of the "Columbia Noir" titles.

Yes, it is part of that:

Fever-dream reds. Blazing blues. Hallucinatory greens. The all-time master of Technicolor, British cinematographer Jack Cardiff used the process as no one before or since to achieve images of delirious beauty. Renowned for his contributions to the masterpieces of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger--visual triumphs like The Red Shoes, Black Narcissus, and A Matter of Life and Death--he went on to become an in-demand international cameraman. Whether shooting on the Spanish coast for the offbeat fantasy Pandora and the Flying Dutchman, in the East African jungle for John Huston’s adventure classic The African Queen, or among the Norwegian fjords for the epic action spectacle The Vikings, he enhanced every film he worked on with his magisterial eye. Also a director, Cardiff’s intriguing filmography includes the psychedelic Euro-cult curio The Girl on a Motorcycle, the first film ever to receive an X rating in the United States.

The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, 1943
A Matter of Life and Death, Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, 1946
Black Narcissus, Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, 1947
The Red Shoes, Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, 1948
The African Queen, John Huston, 1951
Pandora and the Flying Dutchman, Albert Lewin, 1951
War and Peace, King Vidor, 1956
The Vikings, Richard Fleischer, 1958

I've been trying to get through some of the movies expiring on June 30th...

What I've watched so far:

In a Lonely Place: Absolutely brilliant and a Bogart performance for the ages, not to mention Gloria Grahame.

Drive a Crooked Road: Really underrated Columbia Noir with a nice performance from Mickey Rooney in the type of role I haven't really seen him from before (I haven't watched everything, so it's possible this led to a string of similar parts).

So Dark the Night: A b-picture elevated by some nice acting and camerawork. However,
SpoilerShow
the ending seems to come out of nowhere. Very little builds to it. It was probably an awesome shocker at the time, but it feels like a bit of a "cheat" to me.
Flawed but enjoyable movie.

Bugsy Malone: *Groan* This bored me to tears. I like gangster pictures. I like what the movie was trying to go for. But there just wasn't enough substance here for me. Everyone mentions Jodie Foster because she's the only real star in this, but her role is pretty small and inconsequential.

What else would you guys recommend from the movies expiring on June 30th? Hoping to get in 2-3 before the "deadline." (I've already seen To Sleep With Anger. I own Mildred Burke and In A Better World on DVD - not Blu-ray, unfortunately - so as nice as it would be to see those in HD on The Criterion Channel, they're not a priority because I have other ways to watch them.) Thanks!

I highly recommend Ace in the Hole––Wilder's acidic temperament at its most natural and uninhibited (with a great central performance by Douglas and a very unusual but interesting setting)––My Name is Julia Ross––a very quick but tense and rather terrifying b-thriller, which is about a hundred times better than So Dark the Night, in my opinion––and while I've never seen it myself, Murder by Contract gets quite a lot of high praise from what I've seen (though I can't personally vouch for it).

Paths of Glory is one of Kubrick's (and Kirk Douglas's) best, imo. In sum, an Allied Forces commanding officer during WWI orders a foolhardy attack on a German trench position. A colonel, played by Douglas, sees the folly of the order but carries out with it and calls out the colonel for its failure. I'd love to see what Kubrick would have done with Pickett's charge. But American studios seem reluctant to touch the Civil War (recall Spielberg's hedging on a release date for Lincoln uninfluenced by the Presidential vote) though the potential for intrigue as well as box office is limitless, as I see it. Paths is my pick for tonight. Thanks for the reminder.

Re: Pickett's Charge
I forgot about Ronald Maxwell's 1993 4 hour film, Gettysburg, which culminates in the infamous charge. Might be a good time to watch it this weekend. Gene Siskel called it Southern propaganda, which leads me to believe e that it's a completely different take on the man who orders this charge (General Lee), but it's intriguing to see how Maxwell handled it.

The Gay Divorcee looks stunning in its present incarnation -- nothing like the videotape my wife and I watched eons ago. Fred and Ginger's dancing is great -- and its nice to get first glimpses of the F&G repertory company -- but definitely not nearly as good as the best of the later films. Sadly only one Porter song (from his Broadway show The Gay Divorce) made it into the movie -- and the non-Porter music is mostly pretty mediocre at best -- and the choreography NOT involving Fred and Ginger is pretty poor. Still a must-watch for F&G fans..

It's part of their "Jailbreak!" series on September 8. I wouldn't read much into it considering that we've had The Third Man available for some time now.

In case we needed confirmation, Milestone's Of Mice and Men is playing on the channel with both Criterion and Janus logos.

Apologies if this has already been addressed and I missed it, but “Billy Liar” (confirmed by Kino as forthcoming) as well as “Le Doulos” and “Leon Morin, Priest” (both released on Blu-ray by Kino within the past three months) are streaming on The Criterion Channel with the spinning C Criterion logo at the beginning. I was under the impression that the spinning C at the beginning meant that Criterion had the rights. Is this not the case?

I'm pretty sure the films you mention (at least the two Melville ones) are with Kino and Studiocanal. I'm not positive, but it seems to me that if they"re streaming a film they had the rights to in the past but no longer do, you"ll sometimes see the "C" at the beginning regardless.

I would assume that the spinning C means that Criterion has the copyright to that particular digital transfer or restoration, regardless of if they own the actual distribution rights.

Cool stuff.

I'm particularly looking forward to seeing "The Devils" - which somehow I have missed through the years. I did read the Huxley book. . .
