Nothing, but there are plenty of other good films out there whose producers aren't so eccentric about DVD releases as Lucas.

Note that I said "Lucas". This isn't a Spielberg issue. With a few exceptions, his films and those of his production company (Amblin) are well-represented on DVD.

Just give me Raiders - maybe Temple of Doom - and I'm happy.

I'd love to have the Indy Trilogy on DVD, but I'd like to see Lucasfilm/Paramount do it right.

There's too many DVD's out there that reveal what happens when a DVD is a rush job.

I'd like the Indy trilogy too. But the the thing is, is getting Spielberg, Lucas, and the studio together to do it right. It'll take a while, especially since Lucas is doing the prequel trilogy. Took him long enough to get TPM on DVD.

No, you're the only person in the history of the Home Theater Forum to express an interest in the Indiana Jones movies.

The only catalogue DVD's I drool over more are the Star Wars DVD's.

Speaking of which, I've waited way too long for these films on DVD.

[rant on]
Seriously, it's sad that, for those of us that have never owned LD, the only way we can view the original trilogy is via VHS Widescreen.

I was able to tolerate the Widescreen VHS renderings for my Star Wars fix until I acquired TPM on DVD. Now it brings tears to my eyes to have to go back to that sad analog format for the OT.

Lucas needs to understand that there are millions and millions of DVD owners who have never owned a LD player. Most of these "early adopters" of the DVD format are going to be Star Wars fans due to the way the demographics skew. (Actually, it's not so "early" anymore!) And many of these DVD owners are not going to be willing to wait until 2006 (or "whenever") for the OT on DVD. More than ever, we need a "Basic Release" of these films to tide us over until the "Definitive Versions" are ready.

Well ... I feel better now ...

I've got all three on widescreen laserdisc. They look as good as some current dvd releases. I'd rather they take there time on the dvd's and put out the best DAMN dvd box set on EARTH!

Not that long ago, e-tailers like Ken Crane's were trying to unload the THX versions for $10 apiece. I hear they finally gave up and destroyed their remaining inventory.

I grabbed two sets while the going was good. As for LD players, used ones can be had for cheap via eBay.

Ask Warner for a DVD SE of Here Comes The Navy (1934)!

If I could find this and the SW trilogy on LD, I would buy them, and it.

Everyone has been waiting too long too see certain much loved films on DVD. The difference between your films & mine are that you know that the Indy Trilogy will be on DVD withen the next year or 2. I don't have that luxury.

I've been waiting too long for:

In Cold Blood
Curse of the Demon
Freaks
Devils, The
Conformist, The
Leopard, The
King of Comedy

& many others that I haven't a clue on when, or if, they will be released on DVD.

I guess what I'm trying to say that try not to get too upset over this. Be comforted by the fact that the Indy Trilogy will eventually be out on DVD in probably a great special edition box set.
