Which narration will be used? The original broadcast had Dustin Hoffman narrating, but all video prints have had Ringo Starr narrating (there was even a third narration by Alan Thicke!).

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.

Oh goodie! Put me down for one. Hopefully we will get at least 2 choices for narration. (I'm not sure I'm interested in Mr. Thicke's version.)

And the LP (and CD) feature narration by Nilsson himself! Talk about convoluted rights!

There was another thread on this subject started around the same time.

Perhaps they can be combined...?
Movies I would purchase instantly if they were available in their correct aspect ratio:
Death Trap, Innocent Blood, The Shadow, and Remo Williams

I bought this for $2.50 at the flea market a couple weeks ago, I looked at a few minutes of it and it's from a videotape source. I'll have to watch it this weekend and see just how bad it is.

It seems to have been withdrawn - my original link to Harry's website now defaults to his homepage. Very strange indeed - you could even pre-order through Amazon from Harry's site when I originally posted this thread. Hopefully a new release date is set soon.

Now here's something strange on this title...the DVD is out as I rented it from my local video store a few weeks ago!!! I was shocked to see it sitting there as they normally stock only the latest titles. The video quality is much, much better than my old worn-out VHS tape. I've always thought that the animation is rather simple, but the story is a wonderful one.

Posted Image Oh my God I suddenly remember this!! Oh, I have such wonderful memories of this from the early 70's and I never could find out what it was exactly since it wasn't really shown much in the intervening years.
Oh I'll buy this just for the memories.

I never saw this, though I have seen the advertisment pictures for it. All I ever listened to was a cassette my dad had. Maybe it was an 8-Track. I still have a cassette that I found a number of years ago and picked up. Have it right here as a matter of fact. I have a 2 hour drive tonight, I think I'll bring it. Posted Image
