]According to DVD Savant, the disc is in anamorphic widescreen with good colors! Hard to believe and apparently even the disc cover says 4 X 3, but if DVD Savant is right, I'll get my money out and buy this disc.
Savant also says that it looks as if Fox has regained copyright on this movie. Good! No more low grade bootlegs!
I pray he is right.
I'm certainly not spending what little I have on yet another 4:3 pan and scan or letterboxed travesty.
Is this the start of better things to come?
If it is, then let's hope they rescue "New Faces" out of public domain hell or at least give us a decent Anamorphic/Stereo DVD.
Fox (under their Key Video label) did release an official widescreen edition on VHS many years ago.
Since then we have had to suffer several absolutely dreadful looking, chopped-up public domain DVD monstrosities.
The movie had some really great musical numbers performed by Eartha Kitt, (International recording artist and performer) Alice Ghostley, Robert Clary (Hogan's Heroes), Paul Lynde (Bye Bye Birdie) and others, plus the writing of Mel Brooks and Ronnie Graham.
I'd truly love to see this one returned to somewhere near it's former glory.
