from dvdfile

June 10th comes four long-awaited catalog faves: Grease 2, The Brady Bunch Movie, A Very Brady Sequel and Is Paris Burning? Each is features a new anamorphic widescreen transfer and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround track. Paramount will also release the Humphrey Bogart classic Desperate Hours and the WWII drama Murphy's War on the 10th, each in anamorphic widescreen and mono. Although there aren't supplements on any of the above, retail is $19.95 a pop.

I am looking forward to the Bogart Classic Desparate Hours

Sad to see the Brady Bunch movies featureless, but I will buy them anyway.

Desperate Hours and the underrated Is Paris Burning? (great score by Maurice Jarre!) are mine Posted Image
I hope that Is Paris Burning? will be the Roadshow version.

What is it with these releases being done in MONO? That makes little sense to me. Granted, Grease 2 was done in the early 80's, but the Brady films were done in the 90's...is this a misprint?

Look at the first post again - "anamorphic widescreen transfer and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround track" are for Grease 2 and the BB movies. Mono is for Desperate Hours and Murphy's War only.

I love Grease 2 and have been waiting for this forever.

I still don't understand why this was not release with Grease last fall though. Seemed like it would have been better promotion for the studio. If it was some legal hold-up, they sure managed to fix it it right away.

I think it is safe to believe that those sites are wrong. IS PARIS BURNING is the film released and owned by Paramount. PARIS IS BURNING is a documentary released by Miramax in 1991.
