    Anyone know anything whether or not this is due out on DVD? There are some dubious ,at best, offerings on EBay ;for a hefty price but I don't feel like getting burned on those. While I'm at it, any new news on Vanishing Pojnt?(I'm starting to salivate over that one!)

    "Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry" doesn't appear to be currently available on home video period, DVD or VHS. It was at one time issued on VHS from Magnetic Video. (God, remember them? Whatever happened to them?) I believe Fox owns the rights, so you might write to them and request a DVD release.

    There is a Japanese laser disc of Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry, and a European PAL laser disc, both very hard to find and expensive when they show up.

    It was reported by some popular dvd site some months ago that Vanishing Point was to be coming out this year or next, but so far no offical announcement. There is a UK R2 PAL release which I understand is very nice, and at a reasonable price. Try Amazon UK.

    why DM/CL is not out on disc is one of those things that leaves you completely speechless.

    the din and roar if this ever got announced from the people who actually know about it, would be loud enough to pique the interest of the masses that don't yet know about it or haven't seen it.

    in other words, unlike some questionable catalog titles that get released, i would expect this one, over time to sell very well.

    I would love to see this out on DVD, a childhood favorite of mine.

    Plus, we need more Susan George DVDs!!

    I'd love to see this one on DVD as well. If it's ever released I just hope they don't give it the "Joe six-pack" treatment (without those stupid black bars).

    Yep, that was before Hollywood marketing really kicked into gear. So many of those films nowadays wouldn't be made or if they were, they would tack on a "feel good" ending.

    Just be thankful that they killed a Camaro in VP instead of the Dodge...

    Man, I love this film and saw it 3 or 4 times theatrically. This is one of my most-wanted on DVD. All I have is a version on VHS I taped off of Cinemax or something. [​IMG]

    I remember seeing Vanishing Point as a kid and that ending really messed my little mind up!!! In a similar, bleak 70's vein, the ending shot of Electra Glide in Blue.

    I remember in the school holidays when I was 7 (I guess they didn't bother about age ratings), going to the cinema to see this 7 times in a week and never got bored.

    The same year we went to see Man With The Golden Gun (best Bond film by far) but only made it as far as 5 times in the week.

    My old man took me to see it when I was a teenager. He must have knew something about it beforehand as he said it was a "guy movie" so Mom and the girls wouldn't ask to go. We both enjoyed it very much. Dad kept on repeating on the way home how he felt it was vastly superior to Butch Cassidy, which we had seen the week before. He felt that the "criminals" in it were glorified and Dad didn't like it. He felt the unsavory characters in DMCL acted just the way they should have and got their just rewards in the end. Dad has always been very law abiding. In some ways I feel the auto action scenes from this movie are superior to even Vanishing Point. It is fairly obvious in VP in a few scenes that the speeding car was really sped up film footage. Of course, 20th Century Fox realy screwed up the editing of that movie, if you know any of the history of it, you know what I mean. I heard that Barry Newman was quite irked about it, and rightly so.

    seems Anchor Bay will be releasing this much earlier than i was expecting -early enough to watch it outside for that true 'drive-in' vibe [​IMG]

    6/28 and up for pre-order on Amazon!
    hopefully it won't get pushed back
