Amazon.com is listing Frank Capra's "Arsenic and Old Lace" as a pre-order for Nov 9.  No other details are available.  I can't find any information anywhere else.  Does anyone know anything about it?  I don't own it yet, so I wonder if it will have any new bonus material (but I kind of doubt it).  I do want to get a stand alone copy to add to my Frank Capra collection instead of the TCM Classic Comedy set.

It's being re-released in new keepcase packaging as it was only previously available in a snapper. Several other Warner catalog titles are being re-released for this reason on the same day.

Well, at least it will be more readily available again.  I think they could've chosen better cover art, though.  Between this and the "Meet John Doe" 70th Anniversary Edition, I should have all my favorite Capra movies by Christmas, as those are the two glaring omissions in my collection.

This article states this release is colorized, and I just noticed the Amazon listing says color also.  Anyone know if that's that true?  If it is, I'll have to pass on this one.

That certainly seems odd.  Did Warner lose the rights to this?  That's the only way I can see something like that happening.

Warner is releasing it.  I'm hoping it's just an error and this is the original b&w version.

Barnes & Noble's website has a picture of the back cover of the DVD.  The back cover shows that it is in black & white.  Whew!
