Long Version of Midaway would be nice but a mixed bag. Since the extra footage was done for TV the release would need to be Full Frame and Pan and scan for the main film. Since the film was originally recorded with mono sound and sensorround bass channel added. The DVD with 1.1 is the original sound and probably the best way to have it. If it was 5.1 it would mean an artificial 5.1 stereo simulation and those usually don't sound very good or natural.
...When you eliminate the impossible whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth

 It's ridiculous that this movie has never made it to DVD anywhere.

wings, Wings, WINGS!!!


My own three-disc set has get me through, but a nice studio version would be very welcome. AND I'd even let them use my "making of Wings" I produced.


Oh yes, and The Pied Piper. (Montey Wooley).
