I just saw the Rumour Mill at the Digitalbits web site, and they list "Once Upon A Time In America" DVD coming from Warner.

But the rights are still complicated, since Artisan Entertainment owns the international rights (having inherited the PSO [Producers Sales Organization] and Vestron libraries). Wouldn't Warner have to go through Artisan to create a new special edition of the film?

Anyway you look at it, a dvd edition of Once Upon a Time in America is going to be a long time in coming. Let's just hope they do it right!

At the Warner chat, they said OUATIA would be out in 2003. It sucks to wait a year, but it's cool to have an official word on it. I know it could change, but that's the official word as of the chat.

I think the Brazilian disc is Pan & Scan

They did have "The name of the rose" too, I would like that also. Anybody know anything about that disc?

Name of the Rose would be great to have, and yeah, I think you're right about the Brazillian OUATIA... I just didn't want to utter them nasty words. Posted Image

The short, condensed version of a long story involving OUATIA producer Arnon Milchan has him attempting to bring Leone's longest, never-before-seen cut of the film (some 30 or 40 minutes longer again than the European cut) to disc. The comments the Warner reps made about their mooted 2003 release makes me optimistic that this will happen.

The Brazilian release is actually not P&S, it's full frame. It's also 5.1.

I missed this on TheDigital Bits. I know they referenced Once Upon a Time in the West, I didnt see anything about OUATIA. Glad to see it is at least a distant possibility.

It's "Once Upon A Time in the West". There is no mention of America...unfortunately.

Name of the Rose would be great to have on dvd. Especially the scene with the peasant girl. Posted Image

Not true! Both are discussed - Once Upon a Time In the West in 2002, and Once Upon A Time in America in 2003.

From the Warner chat;

Gannett] What's going with some of your gangster flicks? When will there be rereleases of Goodfellas and Mean Streets? And also a release of Once Upon A Time in America.

[Warner] Yes to all three and we want Martin Scorsese to participate in the first two, so we will do our best by them. The producer of ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA is also working with us to ensure that's done right as well. So look for Scorseses in 2002, OUATIA in 2003.

I am optimistic it will be the extended cut of BOTH movies (although there's much debate about one existing for OUATITW), with loads of extras and goodies.....
