    DVD Empire posted this morning under the "Recent Additions" the following TCF releases on 11/7: CAROUSEL: SE, THE KING AND I: SE, SOUTH PACIFIC: SE, THE RODGERS AND HAMMERSTEIN COLLECTION; THE QUILLER MEMORANDUM; THE ULTIMATE FLINT COLLECTION. No specific details except on Flint, which contains perks and commentaries.
    I have good reason to believe (from another thread posted) that MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET: SE and O. HENRY'S FULL HOUSE will be released on 11/21. Hope they include "Meet Kris Kringle" from 20th Century Fox Hour on MIRACLE.

    Hot damn! Of all the James Bond knock-offs and parodies of the '60s, Flint is the only one I really dug. (At least in terms of film; TV had a much better success rate.)

    The Rodgers and Hamerstein set contains all six pictures not just the ones being released this year. That is terrible if you bought Sound of Music, Oklahoma, and State Fair last year. From DVD Empire:

    Includes:
    Carousel: 50th Anniversay Edition
    The King And I: 50th Anniversary Edition
    South Pacific: Special Edition
    The Sound Of Music: 40th Anniversary Edition
    State Fair: Special Edition
    Oklahoma!: 50th Anniversary Edition

    Price is good if you didn't buy last year's musicals. $99 list with DVD Empire selling it for $70 . That is under $12 for each 2 disc set.

    THE CHAIRMAN (1969) starring Gregory Peck is also being released on November 7. With THE QUILLER MEMORANDUM and the SE of the Flint pictures, there seems to be a spy/espionage motif, but where is FIVE FINGERS?

    Happy to see the early November date for the other R&H musicals.

    And I'll welcome O. HENRY'S FULL HOUSE, too. I've been making do with a DVD-R I burned off the Fox Movie Channel.

    That inclues the newer transfer for SOM?

    I keep saying I'll wait for HD, but maybe I'll be tempted if I can get the box set at a good sale price. It sure would be nice to have King and South Pacific in 16x9... I hope the R1 discs look as good as the R2 versions.

    Fritz Lang's Liliom? If so, that's one awesome bonus feature. Glad I never picked up the Kino version.

    Since SOUTH PACIFIC was in Todd-AO, shouldn't the "original road show version" be 2.2? And the term "original theatrical version" is certainly confusing. How can more than one version be the "original?"

    And shouldn't CAROUSEL's AR be the same as THE KING AND I - 2.55?

    I saw some specs today that said that the Ultimate Flint Collection was 3 discs (dont know if that is true or not) but it got me to thinking that the Flint TV movie (with Ray Danton replacing James Coburn).

    I wonder if Fox got Coburn to do a commentary before his death? I recall asking a similar question on a Fox chat and the chatee basically said that I would be impressed with the release. It turned out to be the Flint double feature, bare bones but for trailers (if memory serves). I just wonder if a commentary or interview was done for that release and delayed for whatever reason. Here's hoping.

    According to a poster at the DVD Talk forum, there have been commentary tracks recorded by an ex-CIA agent and Jerry Goldsmith's son Aaron.

    What about some other Fox musicals that haven't already been released on DVD multiple times?

    "I hope the R1 discs look as good as the R2 versions."
    Hopefully better than the appalling R2 ToddAO version of Oklahoma. We can live in hope but I'm not holding my breath.

    I sincerely doubt that the Liliom on the Carousel set is the 1934 French film with Charles Boyer but the 1930 version Fox produced and directed by Frank Borzage and starring Charles Farrell and Rose Hobart. Fox made the 1930 Liliom and merely distributed the 1934 Fritz Lang film which is why I suspect it ended up on Kino.

    The Lang Liliom was scheduled to appear on the UK R2, but was pulled at the last moment. It does appear, however, on the German R2.

    Sorry, David, I am an idiot!As I realised during the day, the transfer I was refering to and have is R1.On all accounts, R2 is the same mess.
