Universal lists them both separately on their website, so I believe you can get it alone. They have pics, but no prices...

Maybe, It appears that you can only get it with the Deluxe Set. Personally, I don't care.

From the site - "This selection is not available for individual sale"

Also they have cover art.

Check this site www.universalhomevideo.com

You need to register.

This set is all mine.I can't wait.

Universal sucks.

It's E.T. all over again. In order to get the original Scarface, you have to purchase an overpriced "deluxe" gift set that likely contains a lot of stuff that many folks don't need or want.

Unfortunately, this time we won't have Spielberg swooping in at the last moment to force a change.

From the Alfred Hitchcock box set scheme, to 800,000 releases of the American Pie movies, to the E.T. debacle, and now this - this studio has continually shown its disdain for the consumer.

Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

 

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.

* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.

* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

I hope the (1983) Anniversary Edition is a 2Disc Set with many "Extras" on the second disc.


For a Cuban like my self I love how Al Pacino mastered the Cuban accent.

This is so sweet!!! Scarface is my favorite movie of all time. I can't wait for 09/30!!!! I hope the film transfer is top notch! Also, is there going to be a DTS track or just DD? Is the 1932 Scarface any good?

Universal really should at least release a bare-bones Scarface (1932) DVD. They really should take pointers from the double features that WB has planned and the ones MGM has created.

In fairness to Universal (and I can't believe I am saying that), E.T. dvd was two different versions of one film. Scarface is not.

I am so disgusted with Universal & their devious marketing tactics. When a great film (the 1932 version), written by a great writer (Ben Hecht), and directed by one of the greatest directors of all time (Howard Hawks) ends up as an exclusive, disc-2 "extra" on an expensive boxset of an inferior 1983 film, it makes me wanna retch.

This is a slap in the face to all classic film fans.

All I gotta say is, I ain't playin your game, Universal. Go hustle your wares someplace else. No Sale.

Well I'm glad they're releasing the '32 version even though it's box set exclusive.

I enjoy both films so this is a no brainer. Posted Image

Now if we could kick Warner in the ass so they'd get moving on a DVD release of White Heat, The Roaring Twenties & Public Enemy.
My gangster film collection would then look much more respectable. Posted Image

Argue all you want about Universal's marketing, it is your right to boycott. I'll be watching a Scarface double feature while you're doing it.

On a lighter note, hopefully this is a sign of Universal revisiting some of their earlier releases, particularly Field of Dreams and Tremors.

C'mon Universal, I know this movie makes an appearance on every episode of MTV Cribs, but that MSRP is a little too rich for me.

No, they're two completely different films; one a renowned classic, the other a film many fans of the original version wouldn't touch with a barge poll. The films are so different, it cannot be said with any certainty that many viewers would enjoy both. I know I will never watch the De Palma version again.
