British label Signal One Entertainment will add two new titles to its Blu-ray catalog: Bryan Forbes' Deadfall (1968) and Jack Smight's Damnation Alley (1977). The two releases are set to arrive on the market this November.

Additional titles are expected to be confirmed shortly.

Deadfall

Synopsis: In this suspense film straining to be Hitchcockian, Michael Caine plays recovered alcoholic Henry Clarke, who finds himself enticed into the home of Fe Moreau (Giovanna Ralli), where he discovers an unusual arrangement--apparently Fe Moreau would rather engage in a relationship with an ex-alcoholic than her husband Richard (Eric Portman). Richard is an out-of-the-closet homosexual, complete with a young Spanish stud (Carlos Pierre) as a plaything. The staid home life heats up to a boil when the three misfits decide to steal jewels from a rich playboy.

Special Features and Technical Specs:
Interview with film Expert Chris Poggiali
Featurette: The John Barry Touch: The Music of a Master
Isolated score and Soundtrack
Still Gallery
Trailer
Booklet by Michael Cain expert Christopher Bray
Optional English SDH subtitles
And More...
STREET DATE: NOVEMBER 20.

Damnation Alley

Synopsis: The world is devastated by a nuclear holocaust, causing the Earth to tilt on its axis and bringing vast meteorological chaos. As the weather stabilizes, mutated insects start to emerge, preying on the survivors. The surviving crew at a U.S. Air Force bomb shelter in the Mojave Desert picks up radio signals coming from Albany. The commander, Major Eugene Denton (George Peppard, The A-Team), unveils two armored vehicles he has constructed and announces a plan to cross Damnation Alley, the hundred-mile-wide strip between areas of radiation hazard, to join the survivors. They set off, taking on two civilians, a novice singer they find in the ruins of Las Vegas and a wild teenager (Jackie Earle Haley, Watchmen), along the way. The journey is also beset by giant mutated cockroaches, storms and crazed survivalists, making for some hair-raising escapes in this post-apocalyptic thriller.

Audio commentary with Producer, Paul Maslansky
Interview with film Expert Chris Poggiali

British label Signal One Entertainment has revealed that it will add to its Blu-ray catalog Henry King's The Sun Also Rises.

The most compelling characters ever created by Ernest Hemingway are brought to life by an equally awe-inspiring cast for this "excellent" (New York Herald Tribune) and stunningly faithful adaptation of the author's The Sun Also Rises!

In 1920s Paris, a group of disillusioned expatriates pursues a life of utter debauchery: American veteran Jake Barnes (Tyrone Power) lives under the cloud of an emasculating war injury; Lady Brett Ashley (Ava Gardner) substitutes a life of promiscuity for the love she cannot share with Jake; Mike Campbell (Errol Flynn) deliberately douses his passions with alcohol; Robert Cohn (Mel Ferrer) becomes more and more hopelessly obsessed with Brett; and Bill Gorton (Eddie Albert) lives faster than his writing can entail. Each member of this "lost generation" clings to the bohemian lifestyle that Paris bars and Spanish bullrings offer... living as though they were about to die.

High Definition Transfer
Commentary by film historians Patricia King Hanson and Frank Thompson
Featurette: The Old Men and The Bulls: The Making of The Sun Also Rises
Featurette – Hemingway on Film

Not sure about the others but the Damnation Alley blu is mostly identical to the Shout Factory release from 2011.
They've added one additional commentary track and an additional interview, but that's it.

Most of Signal One's Shout releases are just straight ports for UK viewers (like GHOST STORY), so the fact it offers anything different is welcome. Frankly it's surprising that movie is getting released at all over there, and that there are enough interested viewers in the UK market for it.

That said, Paul Talbot's commentaries are kinda hard to listen to. Unless they're working from a newer or better master than the rough one Fox provided for Shout's BD, it'll have appeal only for the Brits who didn't import the SF release.
