    So you did actually see the soundtrack LP of this somewhere? I noticed on the one-sheet for the movie that it stated "soundtrack available on Columbia Records," but I've never come across a copy!

    I can never find soundtrack CDs - I just think studios are contractually obligated to post "soundtrack is available" notices in the credits at the end of films, probably because it was standard practice 30 years ago, who knows. I always chuckle whenever I see the word "albums" - reminds me of a bygone era of records and 8-tracks :)

    And the 50's 'Titanic' is out as part of the now defunct 'Studio Classics' line from Fox.


    It is listed 'In Stock' at Amazon.

    I realized about "Titanic" shortly after submitting. As for "Fourth Protocol," I didn't know Warner Archive has it, but I meant an actual release, not a BOD.


    Later Edit: "Fourth Protocol" isn't even a BOD. It's a download. That's not a DVD release.

    Interesting. The Fourth Protocol was announced as a burn-on-demand DVD, but the listing seems to have disappeared from their site.
