    In other Warner news, the studio has also begun work on extensive box sets celebrating the works of two of today's most critically and commercially successful filmmakers, Martin Scorsese and Barbra Streisand. The Scorsese collection will include five of the director's top Warner titles, including new special editions of Mean Streets, Goodfellas, After Hours and Who's Knocking at My Door?, while the Streisand set is slated to include such classics as Peter Bogdonavich's What's Up, Doc?, the Oscar-nominated Yentl, Nuts and the 1976 remake of A Star is Born. Both talents will be involved in their respective collections, and with production already underway, watch for more details to emerge next year. As always, stay tuned!

    Well, this announcement takes care of two
    of the most asked questions on this forum....

    "When is a 2-disc set (or non-flipper) version
    of 'Goodfellas' coming out?"

    "When is 'What's Up Doc?' coming out?"

    This is great news!

    I am sure these discs will be available
    as single purchases.

    This is the news I have been waiting for.

    I'm wondering though if New York, New York, The King of Comedy, Raging Bull, (both with new SE's planned), will be included?

    Come to think of it, they only mentioned 4 titles, who knows what the 5th one will be ?

    Great news, especially about Goodfellas and After Hours. Don't know if I will replace Mean Streets, though.

    Cept for Cape Fear and Bringing out the Dead, I have always held back on Scorsese titles... now I cannot wait.

    I guess the only tricky addition to the box set would be King of comedy, cause that's a Fox title, but they gratefully allowed Wall Strret to cross in the Olly Stone box set.

    You can bet that Raging Bull and New York New York won't be in there since MGM never licenses anything for box sets. King Of Comedy is no longer Warner and now apparently belongs to Fox.

    This sounds wildly inaccurate to me. YENTL belongs to MGM and there's no way they'd participate in a boxed set with Warner (remember the Kubrick collection sans PATHS OF GLORY, etc.)?

    Excellent news on Goodfellas and What's Up Doc? I only hope that the original What's Up Doc (i.e., Bringing Up Baby) makes it soon.

    Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore has got to be the 5th Warner title. It doesn't make sense releasing the box set without it.
    I can't wait to get this box set & What's Up Doc too!

    Didn't any of you buy VICTOR / VICTORIA ? The disc starts with a Warner logo, then opens with the original MGM logo. Most of MGM / UA's older catalog is now under Warner control on home video.

    I am not sure if this is a mistake on their part, but Columbia House is accepting advance orders for What's Up, Doc? with a release date of September 3. For those of you that are Columbia House members, go check it out!

    Anyone have anymore info on the Scorsese set? I've stopped buy Scorsese titles in case they show up in this set so any updates on what we can expect would be really appreciated!

    Is the flipper of Goodfellas anamorphic?
