    Mr. Staddon,

    There could not be a better time to plan a release of ROXIE HART- this film and CHIAGO were both based on the same play and tell the same story. That angle creates a higher tier of marketability for an excellent, though small classic film.

    Production would certainly need to be cranked up and the schedule possibly re-adjusted to fit this on the schedule in time to coincide with the DVD release of ROXIE HART later this year, but there is no better time to do it.

    Fox Movie channel showed Roxie Hart a couple of months ago. Seeing the original you can see what is missing in Chicago - fun!!! Everyone is so serious about eveything they do in the remake. I'm a big musical buff, but did not like Chicago. Second rate singing, dancing, and no Fosse. What were they thinking of.

    I don't think "Chicago" could stand to have another DVD release joined to it at the hip![​IMG]
