    Does anyone have any information about this movie being released on DVD?

    And, while we're at it, does anyone know anything about "Enchanted April?"

    TIA

    No, but with THE BLACK DAHLIA in release now's the time, or to coincide with its DVD release (different studios, though).

    ... And it's my annual time to chime in with my support for this fantastic film. To think of all the free publicity Sony is letting go by with a cross promotion of The Black Dahlia ------ this simply boggles the mind.

    Sony - you really are clueless.

    It was shown in HD on Showtime a few months ago. Looked fantastic!

    God, it's too bad I missed that. I will have to watch Showtime's schedule more carefully to see if it pops up again.

    If anyone is interested, I just found out that HDNet movies will be showing "True Confessions" on October 28. Luckily, I receive HDNet via D* and will be TiVo'ing it.

    TRUE CONFESSIONS was announced for DVD last year, when MGM DVD was still putting out 10 titles a month, but was cancelled for some odd reason. Since they already have a nice widescreen master running on cable currently, you would think Sony would be smart to capitalize on BLACKL DALIHA film's release. Oh well.

    From Davis DVD:

    MGM Home Entertainment will release the previously delayed True Confessions on April 17th. Robert De Niro and Robert Duvall headline this fine, yet underrated, 1981 drama based on the famous Black Dahlia murder case. The DVD will include an anamorphic widescreen transfer and Dolby Digital 2.0 audio track. Extras, if any, have yet to be revealed. Retail is $19.98.

    at 19.98 SRP, I do hope there is some sort of extra.

    I watched True Confessions on HDNet movies. I thought it was a very good transfer, and I presume it will look great on DVD. I used my DVD recorder to make a copy of it, but if the DVD has extras, I may buy it. If it had been released earlier, it would definitely have been a buy for me.

    Herb,
    I received my dvd from Amazon a couple of days ago. I live in the States so I don't know how that factors into the problem you're having in Canada.

    I viewed this dvd yesterday and thought the dvd presentation was excellent. IMO, a very underrated film with some excellent acting performances from both, DeNiro and Duval. Just remember, that the dvd contains a WS and P&S presentations. Too bad they couldn't have left off the P&S and had an audio commentary. Oh well, at least we finally have the film in it's OAR.

    Thanks for bringing up Enchanted April again. I even have my brother looking for it every time he goes to England hoping that it would have been released there. So far, no luck.

    Anybody?
