Is that the real cover art at postage-stamp size? I'm goin' pop-eyed myself tryin' to make out if it says "Widescreen Collection" on top. Please, let it be!

After this and "3 Women," only about 18 Altmans left to be released. Posted Image

He also states Paramount will release "Ragtime" on DVD that's good to hear.

This IS good news -- maybe they'll even include some deleted scenes?? (though I am not holding my breath). I recall the guy who played Bluto going off on how Altman cut nearly every good scene out of the film, and that the cast was shocked when they saw the final cut at what had been taken out of it. Also, maybe this will pave the way for DRAGONSLAYER -- another Disney/Paramount co-production -- to finally nab a DVD release??

Maybe they will have something about Nilsson who did the soundtrack to the movie...besides a song he wrote for Ringo, the last thing he did before he died. Probably not...........

POPEYE was always one of those films that never made much sense to me, but kept me enthralled nonetheless. It's a mess, but a terribly interesting mess. I'd love to see this one in widescreen. I used to own the 8 track of the soundtrack and still own the paperback "The Making of Popeye".

My wife and I saw the movie when it opened, but she was only able to snatch the VHS copy of it a short time back-several years. This DVD will be extremely good news for her!

That would be Duvall not Long.

Cool. I will pick up Popeye on DVD but only if released in OAR (Anamorphic Widescreen if the OAR is Widescreen).

It's a Paramount disc. Why wouldn't it be in WS?

Well, then I don't have to worry since Paramount is Pro OAR.

I caught a little of Paramount's previous transfer (Popeye is one of a handful of Paramount films with only one NTSC transfer before a DVD remaster, including The Elephant Man) and it's downright... as Popeye would say, disgustipating. This is a weird film, but I'm looking forward to it. I love the classic cartoons (mainly Fleischer) and I like the comic strip. This takes the best from the two (the characterizations are exactly like the Fleischer cartoons).

Thanks for the scoop, Oscar. I'm not at all surprised you got the First Word from DavisDVD.com

a nice 16x9 transfer would be nice (and most likely will happen). It would be nice as someone mentioned if some deleted scenes are included or restored back into the film.
