    This is a classic movie from my childhood. I would love to see this movie again in its theatrical form. I HAVE to see Chiun running across the water and Remo jumping from pole to pole and fighting over the Statue of Liberty. I would be grateful. [​IMG]

    Ah, yes. I remember those scenes as well. It has been a while. I'd like to see a Remo Williams DVD, too.

    How about a two-disc set with the TV series included!

    I didn't know there was a TV series.
    I'm sure most of you know the movie was based on the books (I think it was The Destroyer, but I forget now). At one point in time, I had every volume of the series they'd released, and read them all. I think there were like 80 at the time. So you can imagine I was primed for the movie version. I've always seen it as a likable "B" movie. I'm surprised so many others know it and like it. I have it on VHS, but it would make a nice addition to my DVD collection.
    For your Star Trek:Voyager fans, keep an eye out for Capt. Janeway in a military uniform.

    ABC aired either two or four episodes of Remo Williams as a TV series in the late eighties or early nineties. They were aired only once, as filler during rerun season and the show was never picked up. I can't remember who played Remo, but Joel Grey was back as Chiun. It was so long ago that I don't remember much more, other than I really enjoyed the show. And since Dick Clark produced both the movie and the show, hopefully it can be included as part of a DVD package.

    Hey, if Lucas can retitle Raiders, I'm sure Remo could be also!

    Drue--"classic movie from my childhood"????
    Oh my, do I feel old...
    [edit 7/5]
    It was just on Showtime Tuesday night--forgot what an entertaining movie this really is--and the soundtrack was pretty decent too...

    I had started a thread over in Software and a lot of interest was gathered there, found this link on the Last Action Hero thread and wormed over to here to post my needs for Remo as well, MAKE IT PLEASE?
    Thanks,

    My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with a girl who saw Ferris pass-out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious……
