    Really looking forward to Laura. Maybe we can hope to see more film noir if Laura sales well.

    I hope FOX will be using the recent 70MM print elements for "Hello Dolly" which looked spectacular on the big screen at the Egyptian Theater in LA
    THere was talk of a documentary made for the DVD release which never saw the light of day. Any chance that will be included?

    Are we still getting the Rodgers and Hammerstein collection announced early this year for the UK but which now seems to have fallen off the schedule?

    No problem as I probably should have stated my comment more clearly to avoid any misunderstanding.

    James Cameron is on record as saying The Abyss is definitely coming, but probably not until 2014.

    Looking forward to Laura! Minor question, but will it contain all its DVD extras, along with the 12-minute "Laura: The Obsession" featurette that was on the R2 DVD?

    A sincere thanks to Mr. Finn for the updates. I agree that Laura is one of the best films in their library and I look forward to seeing it, and any other 30s/40s classics, on Blu.

    Question for Mr. Finn....there are indications that the merchandising agreement for the 1966 Batman may lead to the long awaited home video release. Any comments you can make whether those have any validity and, if so, will a BD release be forthcoming?

    Unfortunately press coverage was a bit misleading on that one. There is no correlation with the recent announcement and the show's home video release. I repeat..unfortunately.

    Hello, Mr. Finn. I've been a member here for six years but do not believe I ever had the chance to communicate with you in a HTF thread. Thanks for adding to the already impressive roster of industy folk who are willing to field our questions and provide us with answers where possible.
    And, of course, I have several, but I'll hold it to one for the moment: I am assuming you have a connection to Fox Entertainment, which now distributes MGM product. Has MGM indicated any desire to release any of the classic AIP Corman/Poe series on Blu-ray through Fox?
    Many thanks in advance for any tips or clues about that.

    I would lovew LVE IS A MANY SPLENDORED THING with a good sounding stereo track.
    The one Fox always uses for Vid is a dupe that has been badly noise gated.
    Just listen to anyof the dvds and then jump to the French language track, which is the original, not noise gated. the difference is night and day.
    Luckily, Fox kept the original, untampered tracks.
    Theorigianls are on brown mags and the bad dupes are on grey colored mags.
    How do I know all this. A freind of mine was once in charge of vid mastering for laserdiscs for Fox.
