    I know I am.

    Yes, "Victor/Victoria" has been delayed, but that's because Warner is bringing more Edwards titles to coincide with the "V/V" release.

    We all know about "The Great Race", but if you like "Skin Deep" and "S.O.B" (major "S.O.B" fan here), they're coming out too.

    Way to go, Warner. Just do it in OAR, and we'll be happy.

    Sincerely,

    John "Once again, singing Polly-Wolly-Doodle all the day" Kilduff

    Knowing Warner, The Great Race will be P&S. [​IMG] After all, it's a catalog family film. [​IMG]

    I'm excited, though I would be pissed if this isn't OAR. I'm sure I'm not as excited as Scott Weinberg though [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] (for those of you who didn't catch it in another thread, Scott loves Blake Edwards directing [​IMG]).

    Skin Deep was awesome! I hope they include some behind the scenes materials.

    Remember when Ritter was on the Larry Sanders Show and got into a fistfight with Ebert over "Skin Deep"?

    (Yes, I realize it was fiction, it was still funny!)

    calm down lol - all the films are scope!
    my peeve is that my favorite BE film (SOB) is getting NO Extras, while Skin Deep gets a commentary and featurette!
    I understand V/V getting extras, as it is the "hit" of the bunch, but was SD that big?
    I'd be interested to hear JA comment about the scene where she "shows (her) boobies"

    Wow, this is great news. Let's hope Warner releases these films in OAR. Edwards is one of the best examples of a director who uses the entire frame for jokes and gags. Now where is "A Fine Mess" Columbia!

    Looking forward to Victor/Victoria, S.O.B. and Skin Deep. Shame that S.O.B. doesn't get the extras it deserves. Oh well, I hope the transfer for it is good. Looking forward to watching the glow in the dark scene in SD....heh,heh now that was a classic scene.[​IMG]

    Victor/Victoria is a definite must have. I wish I still had my old laserdisc.

    I love Blake Edwards. I really, really love Blake Edwards.

    I am almost verrrry happy to hear about this. But...

    WHY no extras on S.O.B., which just might be his best film?

    Why, for god's sake, Why?????????

    "S.O.B." is easily my favorite Blake Edwards film. It's a shame that some of its biggest stars are no longer with us, but there are still several who are, such as Julie Andrews, Larry Hagman, Loretta Swit, Shelly Winters, Robert Loggia, etc. If the making of this film was even a tenth as fun and wild as the events that take place within it, a commentary or documentary would be highly entertaining and informative.
    But even without any extras, it will be worth it just to finally have the misadventures of Felix, Cully, Ben and Dr. Finegarten on DVD, and especially in OAR.

    S.O.B. was originally released through Lorimar,(Warners never made the film) which may explain why there are no extras on the DVD. CBS/FOX released the video at one time.

    I'm disappointed that Blake and Julie won't be providing commentary for S.O.B., I'd love to hear their comments on Mrs. Edwards' infamous topless scene.

    Nevertheless, I'll probably buy Victor/Victoria, S.O.B, and maybe the Great Race.
