Hi Peter Staddon & Fox

I think that I speak for lots of HTF'ers that reside outside the US & Canada who are delighted that Sunrise is coming to DVD R1. There is only a slight problem facing customers outside the US & Canada that we are unable to get a hold of this dvd.

Would you let us know how we can get a hold of the dvd as you are aware of the vast number that have expressed an interest in Sunrise. Technically I have already qualified as I have purchased 3 of the Fox Classic Movies that have come out so far.

Kind regards

Oscar Merkx

I would also like to express my hope that, as a UK resident I can obtain Sunrise, having purchased three Region 1 Fox Studio Classics.

Add me to the list. So far, I only have All about Eve on my shelf but more is sure to come.

Count me in as well. Posted Image

All About Eve has just arrived yesterday, and The Day The Earth Stood Still and An Affair To Remember are (pre)ordered.

I understand it's difficult for Fox to send Sunrise discs to all overseas customers, but can't you get us HTF-ers off the hook, for old time's sake...? Posted Image

Please give us some hope that we will be able to get it. I have been longing for Sunrise on DVD since I bought my first DVD player 5 years ago...

I want to add myself to the list here... I live in Switzerland and am absolutely devastated that there is no way for me to have this DVD. I have seen Sunrise only once and that was on a print that was actually missing one reel (the ride to the city)--I still loved it.

However, since there doesn't seem to be any way for the non-Americans to get this, I guess I'll have to wait until they show up on eBay and then pay an extortionate price to get this DVD.

Please let us know if there is at least some kind of plan to offer this to other countries too, because this feels really humiliating in a way--are the rest of us not deserving enough or what?

Note that it is not a matter of getting the disc for free--I would gladly pay for it, but a matter of getting it at all.

Very unhappy.

Ivan

Another vote here. Please make Sunrise available to customers outside the USA.

Well, I'd like to get Sunrise but I lost my receipts for HGWMV and AAE. Posted Image My fault I know, but I really don't see the point in having Sunrise be available this way. Posted Image Posted Image

If it is economically viable to supply copies of Sunrise to overseas consumers, I would be deeply grateful to Fox. Great film - don't be denied!

Count me in - I'd love a copy. Surely Fox would make more money by making it available elsewhere or at least releasing it as normal and then we can import it.

I too would be most grateful if this offer could be extended to those of us Sunrise fans who live outside North America.

Counte me in!

Fortunately I'm going to New York City next April and I have a friend who lives there, so I think finally I'll get Sunrise. Now the question is which three titles to buy (I have the old versions of All about Eve, How green was my valley and An affair to remember). I think I'll wait for The ghost and Mrs. Muir...

Lord, yes!

I can't, for the life of me, work out why you don't just sell it on its own as well as the mail-in offer, so everyone goes home satisfied.

Do you really believe Sunrise needs the likes of An Affair to Remember and Gentleman's Agreement to help it shift copies?

By not making this offer available to overseas customers, Fox is only going to pad the wallets of Ebay sellers!

I gladly and strongly support this request, but, ahem... I already own Sunrise.
How to put this? Ask the help of a friend (or a friendly retailer).

Hmm, How can they be helpful in this? Is it not Fox that sends out the Sunrise Discs?

I too would love to see Sunrise made available for us overseas customers through some way. Just an announcement from Fox will do really. I'll then know if I should hold out for the retail release or buy it on now eBay for top dollar.
