Anyone else want the 1960 "disaster" movie "THE LAST VOYAGE" on DVD ?

If so, how do we go about bringing it to the studios attention ? I love this film and it would sit great next to "THE POSIEDON ADVENTURE" and "TITANIC".

Anyone agree?

Also have the laserdisc version - when I purchased Criterion's " A Night To Remember " a couple of years ago on Ebay the seller threw in this title plus " Titanic" - 1996 with George C. Scott as well as " Titanic " - 1953 with Clifton Webb. Which reminds me - the OAR of Last Voyage must be at least 1:66 - the laserdisc version is full frame, unfortunately. Yes, Robert Stack did some good acting in that film. One of the more realistic movies of that type.

Well, it's a 1960 MGM film so that means Warners has the rights. If they can release Night Of The Lepus, I don't think a The Last Voyage release is out of the question.

One more for the "Me too" list. I don't know that I consider this a great movie, and I have NEVER been able to stand the little girl, but I do have this thing for sinking ship movies, and for that, this one is superb.
