Highbrow distributor Kino Lorber is well-known for its DVD collection of art house films, especially those of historic and international significance--think Fritz Lang's "Metropolis."

Now, the distributor is launching a new 'Studio Classics' label, releasing eight high-profile titles on Blu-ray this July--all of which will be making their Blu-ray debut, and one of which, "Paris Blues," will be released for the very first time on Blu-ray or DVD.  The new collection includes the Best Picture Oscar-winner "Marty," as well as films by giants such as Billy Wilder, Sydney Pollack and Delbert Mann.

Here's a list of all eight releases--no doubt there will be more to come as Kino Lorber's new label grows.

"Witness for the Prosecution"
"The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes"
"Sabata"
"The Scalphunters"
"Marty"
"Separate Tables"
"Duel at Diablo"
"Paris Blues"
