Would there really be a chance that The Prestige get an Arrow release?

That's the wrong kind of hat for it to be Miller's Crossing (not that that means it's a bad guess!)

Don't know why everyone is ignoring the obvious...

I think that version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is with WB.

Is the hat the same style that Stewart wears in The Far Country? (Haven't seen the film).

Someone on Twitter guessed El Topo, which, given how Arrow's clues usually go, is probably correct.

I would expect any Jodorowsky would be on the Arrow Video line, not Acafemy.

Ah, I see Hollywood Classics have it as Universal in the UK, but WB released it on DVD in the UK. So, maybe.

It's actually the kind of hat worn by John McIntire's character in the movie, Gannon...Image

TBH I suspect Hollywood Classics is mistaken about the '31 Dr. Jekyll—as a pre-1950 Paramount it would be with Universal, except MGM bought it from Paramount to do the '41 remake and WB eventually inherited it via the Turner library. Park Circus also lists the film in their catalog and they have it as a WB title.

I could easily see it being Academy. Borowczyk was Academy, the Vincent Wards were Video...it's not always obvious where Arrow will place them.

I think the Astaire/Rogers film TOP HAT is actually the best guess. It’s an RKO title so, yes its with WB in the states, but most of the RKO library is held by Universal in the UK.

After Criterion’s release of Swing Time I would love to see Arrow tackle the team as well.

I believe that the RKO library changed hands from Universal to Warner in the UK a few years ago - hence the Warner releases of Citizen Kane, King Kong etc.

How ’bout von Sternberg’s Morocco with tophat wearing Dietrich?

Clearly a deluxe 3-disc edition with 100-page book of Michael Mann’s Blackhat.

I think it will be for El Topo as part of the Jodorowsky set, but if anyone is going to put out Michael Mann's director's cut of Blackhat it will surely be Arrow; it's a Legendary/Universal film like Crimson Peak.

Could it be "Black Cat (1934)" (as opposed to black Hat)?

Again, I feel like most are forgetting that this hint is for Arrow Academy, NOT Arrow Video.

I know you're joking, but Arrow releasing a special edition of Blackhat would be pretty awesome.

Arrow’s releases are so ridiculous and unpredictable that every joke guess in this thread is indistinguishable from the sincere ones
