By the way Allen, what if Goldwyn and the Gershwins bury PORGY AND BESS again when the time expires with MGM? I wish they'd just transfer the best print they have (it would have to beat my bootleg copy) so we have access to the full version again. There's a legion of folk who would stampede to Tower to get a halfway reasonable version of this film.
My comment was that if the Goldwyn titles get out from under MGM perhaps we will have get some of the great titles that are in that library and not on DVD, such as the Danny Kaye and Eddie Cantor films. Both of those actors are not represented well in the DVD market.
The only time I have seen PORGY & BESS was a telecast on the ABC Sunday Night Movie back in ????, So I have never seen it widescreen and heard it in stereo. I do remember that it made a very lasting impression on me at an early age and to this day I remember a lot of the scenes. I would love to see it is a glorious legitimate DVD release, but we will never see it under the MGM label and getting out from under them there is a small chance.
