    Damnation Alley coming from Anchor Bay....

    Still no info on when the release date for this is going to be? The TV scenes would be good as a supplement. They're the only scenes that still have Murray Hamilton uttering any dialogue at all.

    Can Anyone Recommend a Good "Jack Benny" release?

    The one to avoid then is Madacy which edits all the live commercials.

    Can Anyone Recommend a Good "Jack Benny" release?

    I think with the Beach Boys one it could depend on the elements. The one we have seen circulated for years on PD videos is a B/W kinescope of a program that originally aired in color. I can confirm that the original color videotape of this program still exists in NBC's vault at least...

    Can Anyone Recommend a Good "Jack Benny" release?

    I'm facing the same problem myself because I'm finding to my distress that a lot of the PD releases of live Benny shows are cutting out the integrated Lucky Strike commercials whereas they were always left intact on the PD VHS releases. I won't even take a chance on them any longer until I...

    Mary Tyler Moore Show: Season 2 coming in July (CONSOLIDATED DISCUSSION)

    One of the commentaries mentions that another reason why they had to do a new open for Season 2 was because in the Season 1 montage, Mary is wearing a fur coat and suddenly between Season 1 and 2 she went on an anti-fur kick and wouldn't let that shot be used any more. I always hated the fact...

    Mary Tyler Moore Show: Season 2 coming in July (CONSOLIDATED DISCUSSION)

    At the very least, even if we don't get another season past this one, I'll at least have a season of the standard opening theme music on DVD! I can only take so much of just hearing the first season theme music over and over again.

    Mary Tyler Moore Show: Season 2 coming in July (CONSOLIDATED DISCUSSION)

    Okay, just how much of the song is missing from the episode? Because you can still hear Mary singing "May your days be merry and bright..." on the DVD so was a whole chorus originally there that got edited down? And if this were a music rights issue, then how could a line get left in?

    NASA DVDs?

    We've already had released in the past DVD boxed sets devoted to the Gemini and numerous Apollo missions that contain all of the film shot in space and live TV transmissions. I have the one for Apollo 11 and it's an impressive assembly of documentary materials.

    Twilight Zone Definitive Edition

    BB is clearly starting from the premise that $119.95 is the MSRP and discounting it from that assumption, when they haven't gotten it through their heads that $99.95 is the MSRP and thus they should be selling it for about $84.95 I would think.

    Warners-Time To Release "Shoes Of The Fisherman"

    As we honor the life and memory of Pope John Paul II, it seems to me that Warners should consider more strongly to giving this 1968 film a DVD release at last. Though plodding in many areas, it is a fascinating look at the inner workings of the Vatican and also tells an eerily prophetic tale of...

    Best Buy To Alter DVD Layout To Emphasize TV on DVD

    I don't know about you, but this reads like an esoteric April Fools thread if you ask me.

    Twilight Zone Definitive Edition

    Yes, $51 for season 2 ($12 of that from one day shipping). For a five disc set to cost $104 has no justification IMO.

    Twilight Zone Definitive Edition

    Walking in to Best Buy and being greeted by a $104 price was a very rude shock today. And it didn't take me long to walk right out the door! How they can sell it at that price is absolute insanity. I ordered via Amazon and signed up for the Amazon Visa so I could get an extra $30 off and...
