Isn't it about time that that  The Student Prince    was released on dvd  and  bluray? The last release was in the days of VHS. Also SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS  would be very welcome on bluray.It is truly one of the most memorable musicals ever. What also happened to the Rogers and Hammerstein  collection  (South Pacific,Oklahoma,Carousel,King and I and State Fair) that were   listed  for release in the United Kingdom  on bluray more than a year ago but never  emanated as promised. I know that South Pacific is out there and Oklahoma  is due in 2014 but when are the  rest due out.? I did   read that THE KING AND I  was due  for release in Europe   earlier this year but have never been able to  find a copy on bluray. It is a pity that  90% of the  films on bluray   are not worthy of a  release in that medium. It is time that the   studios gave the  majority  of film buffs  the films that they  want to see again and again rather than  release crappy  films that few  people will buy.

The Student Prince was released on DVD a couple of years ago by Warner Archive.  It's one of their made to order titles.

The Student Prince is available on Warner Archive (MOD DVD).

 

(Whoops, looks like while I was searching for the link Larry beat me to it.)

The Warner Archive DVD of "The Student Prince" is only $9.39 at ImportCDs during their present sale.

 

Being Anamorphic it looks a lot better than the old letterboxed Laserdisc.

Thanks   everyone for that.I do have   a copy but I don't think it was Warner's release. Warner's  absolutely refuse to  post ( or ship ,as  you Americans strangely say ) dvds overseas.They have  a lot of MOD  films  but unless you can find someone else selling them on the internet ,you  cannot buy  any from Warner's directly. Seems that they  would rather lose   sales and goodwill  rather than post overseas. It is no wonder that  people  buy illegal copies. It is up to you Warners.Incidentally why do Americans say 'shipping'  when  posting  items. Few items  are sent by ship any more . If you want to send  an item you go to the POST office in order to  send it.Not a SHIPPING office. Does not make sense. Can anyone  explain why you use the term 'shipping'? Other stupid  names that are also used world wide:  VIDEO (as in video shops) when there is no longer any video. FILMS when film has  all but disappeared.

Try importcds.com. They carry all the Warner Archive releases and at a pretty good discount. Of course overseas shipping is a bit more but shouldn't raise the price over what the Warner site charges.

Isn't it about time that THE STUDENT PRINCE IN OLD HEIDELBERG is released at all?  This Lubisch masterpiece has yet to be seen on standard DVD.  It was beautifully restored by Kevin Brownlow years ago.

I don't know why the terms "ship" and "shipping" have taken hold, but that's just what it's commonly called in the U.S. There are many such examples. Comedian Steven Wright used to muse about why it is that we park our cars on a driveway but drive our cars on a parkway.

 

I will take exception to your comment about the use of the term "video" though. "Video" does not just mean a VHS tape (if that's what you had in mind). It is a proper term for moving pictures (in any format), the equivalent of the term "audio" for sound. Video may be provided in a variety of formats: videotape (VHS or Betamax), laserdisc, DVD, Blu-ray disc, digital file, etc.

Oklahoma and Carousel are not Warner - they are 20th Century Fox releases.

I wasn't commenting on whether it was Warners release or not ... I know it's a Fox title.

But in his original post, Cineramoto stated "I know that South Pacific is out there and Oklahoma  is due in 2014'

He didn't state it was a Warner release. Just that he knew it was due in 2014.

That's exciting news. So I ask again .. does anyone have any details?

So, what's this supposed to mean?

 

"News to me (and very welcome indeed) that Warners has formally announced the release of Oklahoma!"

 

Is that hard for you to swallow your pride and to admit that you were wrong?

Maybe Warners is the name of some guy who made the announcement?  :)  And by the way there has been no formal announcement. If there had, reliable sources would have picked it up.

While we are at it, where is the box set with the three versions of Showboat?

Oh dear, how terrible .. I said Warners by accdident. Isn't that just shocking.
I do apologise most profusely to anyone who got totally confused by such an awful awful error.

How could such things happen? I have slapped my wrist and please give me time to respond properly if you wish to challenge me to a duel since you seem to think this was so terrible.

But to get back to my original question which hasn't been answered ... when was the 2014 release announced, as mentioned in the opening of this thread?" I've been waiting for so long for this that I just don't care who releases it!

This may be old news to some, but there was an announcement at blu-ray.com that a BD Rogers and Hammerstein set is soon to be announced in the UK.  Of course, the titles are THE SOUND OF MUSIC, SOUTH PACIFIC, OKLAHOMA, THE KING AND I, CAROUSEL and STATE FAIR.   I'll certainly spring for it, even though I've already got the first two.  You know, it might be a spell before the same set is released in the USA.  I had my CLEOPATRA BD for a couple years before Fox USA got off it's lazy old butt and released it here.

Great news ... I'll probably go for the box set and sell off my copies of Sound of Music and South Pacific.

If they are presently working on the 70mm 30fps "OKLAHOMA!" and I've heard of no updated news regarding work on "The King and I", "Carousel" and "State Fair" it's most unlikely there will be any action before the middle of next year.

 

One would think that "OKLAHOMA!" will get it's own release. (first half of next year?)

 

I'm not sure if Ed was referring to the original UK box set announcement of more than a year ago.

Certainly you would have to make sure the box set contained the 70mm "Oklahoma!" restoration before purchasing.

 

Doug.

Yes, I did think maybe this was a reference to that nuisance posting by Amazon.co.uk more than a year ago of the Rodgers and Hammerstein box set .. but I'm always optimistic!

Meantime, I have kept my original non-anamorphic DVD of the Todd-AO version which looks ok on the projector -- looks way better than the anamorphic 'special edition' travesty that was last issued on DVD! The Cinemascope version is ok but the Todd AO gives us the better performances!

Anthony,

You've got me scratching my head.

I'm probably 100% wrong, but I'm not sure I've ever seen the Todd-AO version on DVD, other than the Anamorphic Special Edition disaster.

Is it a proper Fox release or is my deteriorating memory finally cracking up? (it's been a bit of a worry lately)

 

There was a roadshow version on Laserdisc, but I can't remember (see there I go again) if it was from a 70mm source.

 

 

 

ps. Is it possible I saw you at the State Theatre in St Kilda Road the other week?
