    No news....then again, I haven't asked.

    I was told first-hand from the studio early 2005

    that it was put into production for DVD release.

    I would think the title is ready to go, just

    awaiting a release window.

    Thank you. I can't imagine what kind of a "window" they are waiting for. [​IMG]

    I guess this not being announced in WB's BIG announcement can be taken as perhaps not real great news. (Possible future announcement) I just hope WB doesn't sit on a "ready to go out the door to the stores" DVD with this title like FOX did with "All That Jazz". As mentioned in the prior post, what kind of a "window" they are waiting for? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Once again, what is the release status of this film? Or has said "window" been shut? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The studio says 2007. It will be released as part of an upcoming Burt

    Lancaster set.

    That's a little later than I'd prefer to see, but later is better than NEVER, as in "Robinson Crusoe on Mars" & Paramount! I certain hope it is the proper length & AR. I'd love a nice set of extras if possible. I'm curious about the other Lancaster films. Hopefully "Twilight's Last Gleaming" will be available on its own if I deem the other films in the set as titles I'm not interested in. Thanks for the new & positive news on this favorite film.

    Bob,
    The studio has gone silent.
    Last I spoke with them, the title was due for release this year.
    I have to be limited in what I say here, but there was one
    additional item that the studio wanted to consider that may
    be coming into play here that could still preventing this release.
    I am confident that this title is still in the works, but having
    a little more insight into what may be happening, I think the
    studio is intentionally delaying TLG in order to offer
    the best possible release it can.

    My optimism from 18 months ago has left. I'm now unhappy with the delaying of the release of this title. The only thing in my mind that really justifies a continued long term delay is if we're going to get a multi-disc extra packed Blu-Ray release. If there is no possible Blu-Ray release on the horizon, then get the title out the door! [​IMG]

    I would be happy with the DVD, but would be overjoyed if TLG made its way to Blu-ray.

    I just stumbled on this thread as I'm cleaning up and going through some old movie tapes from off HBO to see what I can get rid of. Not this one apparently. There are a lot of great 70s movies yet to come out - Badge 373Report to the Commissioner, 92 in the Shade, Sky Riders, Fast Break, Freebie and the Bean. What gives?

    Well how much LONGER is WB going to sit on this title? [​IMG] [​IMG] When are the "Highly" paid executives going to figure out a date to release this title. One chance has already been lost when it was not released with the Lancaster box. How many "YEARS" must we wait? I don't want to be dead & buried when it gets released. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Jeff,
    First of all, do us all a favor and downsize your signature
    font considerably, please.
    Okay....
    Listen, I am perhaps one of the biggest fans of this film which
    kind of puts you in a fortunate position since I have been continually
    talking with the studio regarding this title.
    As far as I know the situation that is holding up this title's release
    has not changed. Warner has the opportunity to do something better
    with this release but it means that they need to further delay it. That
    is all I can say.
    The title has not been forgotten.

    Jeff,
    I can't speak for the studio.
    However, I say again that while this title is on their priority list
    it needs to sit a while longer for reasons I would agree with
    the studio to be necessary.

    I might as well chime in too, since I'e been quite vocal about my desire to see this title out the door ASAP! I was going to hold off for a couple more weeks before asking.

    Situation has not changed.
    When this title is finally announced I hope I can talk a little
    more about why it was held up for all this time.
