    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...

    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...

    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...

    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"...

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...

    "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...

    MGM's problems holding up other film releases on Blu-Ray?

    The United Artists Films are controlled by MGM so none of them will come out until MGM is purchased. Jack, the last DVD version of "Fiddler on the Roof" looks great on High Def TV, don't know how much better it would look on Blu-ray (unlike other DVD titles which don't look too good on HD TV)

    Sound Of Music 2010 ???????

    Yeah, ten (10) months away, why do they even bother telling us in Feb????? Most Studios wait until 3-4 months out before they announce. So does this mean we get 1 musical from Fox a year (Wow!) such slow output

    Early DVD Titles that do not look good on High Def displays

    I've been watching a lot of DVDs on my High Def SONY Bravia and Pioneer Plasma sets and many look great - some even better than many blu-ray discs. Last night I put on "Mister Roberts" Hnery Fonda/James Cagney/Jack Lemmon/William Powell and it looked - really bad, this disc was beyond bad. It...

    Sean, i was at the Acadmey screening - it looked very good, but that was the only time I saw it in a theater so I don't know how bad it may have looked before. It would be great if they could do a stereo mix - the soundtrack CD is in stereo
