THE ABYSS, seconded (throw in TRUE LIES for good measure).

Call me an optimistic fool but I think Fox is going to be begging Cameron to finally OK new transfers so they can tie them into Titanic's Blu-ray release.

Has there in fact been a domestic Standard DVD release in the correct OAR? Thanks.

I had the early dvd in the clipcase sold it off months ago when I realized it was non-anamorphic. I seem to think it was no more than 16x9 - the latest cable version starts 2.35 then cuts to 16x9 after the credits. It has since been remarketed more than one way, coupled with "Dave" and by itself, in standard DVD keepcases. From the stats on Amazon (which are notoriously unreliable) I don't think it's on DVD in anamorphic OAR. I think the streaming netflix version was even worse, 1.33 via starz.

Regarding Jane Eyre with York and Scott --

Who could claim the rights to this now? MGM? Warners? Universal?

British Lion distributed it theatrically in the U.K. and in Europe, so far as I know. NBC broadcast it in the USA, initially as part of the Hallmark of Fame, and later apart from Hallmark. In other words, I have no idea who controls it know. But if John Ford had filmed Jane Eyre the way he did Mary of Scotland or The Informer, this is how it would look and play out.

Jane Eyre. 1970 George C. Scott/Susannah Yorke. Omnibus Productions UK.

Part of the Public Domain. For that reason, a number of low quality DVD editions have been released on the market throughout the years. Furthermore, most transfered copies offer a cut-down 99 minute version. 


Not to good it seems.

THE ROMANTIC ENGLISHWOMAN is out via Kino Lorber. Nice disc: http://www.dvdtalk.c...glishwoman-the/ THE SUPER COPS is available on MOD disc via the Warner Archive, which is where it's likely to reside. WELCOME TO L.A. is an MGM MOD disc. THE IPCRESS FILE is or was out in a decent region-free BD edition but its price has gone up. THE GO-BETWEEN received a handsome Region B transfer. Check Amazon UK. I'm afraid you're going to remain unsatisfied with a few of these, but I think you know that...:)

I wonder if the Weinsteins will finally release their Miriam titles on BD, including 55 DAYS AT PEKING and CIRCUS WORLD as well as improved transfers of EL CID and FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE. Seems odd that we're still waiting for the latter two in the States. By the way, great list Richard. I'd buy all of the above and several PORGY AND BESS BDs for gifts.

My question would be ...do the Weinstein's still have the 'rights' to the Bronston epics? Are they owed by The Weinstein Co or the Co they sold to Disney?
