    Sound Of Music 2010 ???????

    There are few other photos of the stars at the christmas tree, "The Sound of Music" went into general release in December of 1965. Back in the 60's a film could run for two years (some did) and then there was the re-lease and the TV sales. There was a picture of Leslie Parrish as Daisy Mae...

    Am I missing something? What's wrong with Flipper Discs?

    The Ten Commandments

    Garybs, normally I would agree with you. I do believe films should not be changed - Unless - the reason was that the film wasn't finished and the intent was to make the changes when the film first came out. If the "Ten Commandments" editors ran out of time before the opening I can understand...

    FOX, what happened the thr Rodgers & Hammerstein releases for 2010???

    last year Fox announced more R&H in 2010. So far only "the Sound of Music" is on the way (and not until December) where are the others? "Oklahoma!" "Carousel" "The King and I" and what about "Hello Dolly!" this Todd-AO film would look great on Blu-Ray

    Warner Bros Archieve - problem movies?

    I would believe most kids today wouldn't even like "Song of the South" and the only people interested in it would be adults who grew up with it. I would guess Disney could issue it this way (maybe change the rating as not appropriate for children?) But as with most things in demand, once it is...

    widescreen please

    "Arthur" "MacKenna's Gold" "Picinc" "Annie" All these films need to be in widescreen. "MacKenna's Gold" is coming out on DVD again this srping - but will it still be Pan and Scanned?

    Warner Bros Archieve - problem movies?

    According to the DVD savant (Glenn Erickson) A pub release by Warners touts the Warner Archive Collection as the perfect venue for problem pictures. Mammy, they say, is "a film whose political (in)sensitivity may make it inappropriate for mainstream audiences, but whose historical importance...

    "A Star Is Born" Garland in 6k resolution

    Joe is right about the studios, once it is in their possession they will claim they own it (they were the creators) and they do screw people over. I sure there are a lot of things out there that are not released due to this reason. Remember Irving Berlin refused to allow "Annie Get Your Gun"...

    SONY and Paramount - where is your classics out put for 2010?

    Sony has only a few titles scheduled for Blu-ray this year - "The Karate Kid I & II" and "The Natural" - where's the rest? Whatever happened to "Lawrence of Arabia" "Bridge on the River Kawi" "Funny Girl"? Paramount has "The African Queen" but that's about all. It's already March and there are...

    Franco Zeffirelli 1968 "Romeo and Juliet" 40th Anniversary. Special Edition soon?

    This is one of a few Paramount catalog titles Amazon has had listed as currently not available but sign up to be notified (usually this means a Blu-ray is coming in the next 12 months - but not always)

    Movies that Deserve Blu-ray Treatment

    IIRC, My Fair Lady, The Sound of Music, and Dr Zhivago have all been dated and detailed for release in the next 6 months. Jesse, where did you hear about "My Fair Lady"? "Sound of Music" is 9 months way

    "A Star Is Born" Garland in 6k resolution

    Speaking of WB trims, does anyone have the complete number of "Together Where Ever We Go" from "Gypsy" the first section and lead in to the song are missing. Also is there a 35mm copy anywhere, the 16mm leaves a lot to be desired. Ironically there are so many stills from this number and it is...
