It clearly has been delayed -- some speculate to coincide with the upcoming August Chicago release. I am also puzzled at the apparent delay for a title that should be fairly eagerly anticipated from what I can tell Posted Image .

It is the R1 release that has been delayed by Fox. It has been available for a long time in R2 & R4. I purchased the R2 version last August. Yes the apparent reasoning for the present lack of a release date is that is was to be joined at the hip to "Chicago" in terms of a release date. Now that "Chicago" has a release date, when will "All That Jazz" R1 appear? The fact that Fox has still not announced a release date for this film in R1 is getting to be very funny!Posted Image Meanwhile I just sit back & smile while I enjoy my R2 version.

I don't buy R2 titles because I don't have a player, and the 4% speed-up is especially bad for musicals. Where's the R1 All That Jazz?

Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I am going to boycott The Walt Disney Company until then. And while you're at it, PLEASE stop dropping DVD/laserdisc extras from Blu-ray releases of other films.

[quote] the 4% speed-up is especially bad for musicals [quote] I suppose if you have "golden ears". I've never noticed any difference in the sound when listening to my copy.

The songs are usually one semitone higher than they should be. I was in Switzerland last year; I caught the end of My Fair Lady (in widescreen, and dubbed in Italian), and noticed this.

As I said above, "golden ears". Since mine aren't that sensitive I'll keep on buying PAL DVDs.
