These are the 13 Universal titles I could find (14 if you count "The Paleface" twice )
Road to Morocco Road to Singapore Road to Utopia Road to Zanzibar The Ghost Breakers The Paleface Big Broadcast of 1938/College Swing My Favorite Blonde/Star-Spangled Rythym Monsieur Beaucaire/Where There's Life Sorrowful Jones/The Paleface
Universal's database shows April 1st, but the press release says April 15th. In either case, neither says it's May unless that date was just changed and hasn't been updated in their system yet. It would be bad if that was the case, because it would be "too late".
Why? Because it's the "Bob Hope 100th Birthday Tribute", which will be promoted for the first 15 minute segment of the 2-hour Bob Hope Special which airs on April 20th. The segment "showcases his movies on DVD and video". Apparently this airs on PBS, so this is the "commercial" for Universal's sponsorship of the event. So this is a re-promote, as stated.
Note that this is NOT a single mega-DVD release. It is 13 individual SKUs that showcase 17 films. Here is the list from the database:
Caught in the Draft / Give Me a Sailor Double Feature $14.98 College Swing / The Big Broadcast of 1938 Double Feature $14.98 The Ghost Breakers $14.98 Louisiana Purchase / Never Say Die Double Feature $14.98 Monsieur Beaucaire / Where There's Life Double Feature $14.98 My Favorite Blonde / Star Spangled Rhythm Double Feature $14.98 The Paleface $14.98 The Road Show Series Gift Set $39.98 Road to Morocco $14.98 Road to Singapore $14.98 Road to Utopia $14.98 Road to Zanzibar $14.98 Sorrowful Jones / The Paleface Double Feature $14.98
Note that "The Road Show Series Gift Set" simply consists of the four "Road to..." titles listed immediately below it.
Now, these MIGHT be new lower prices, I'm not sure off the top of my head. Anyone?
ok i went to www.pbs.org and did not find anything but supposedly NBC will be having a 100th B-Day special for Bob Hope. Don, P.S. did anyone hear the news about Bob Hope getting more memory installed in His Computer. and when the Computer Tech. was done Bob Hope said to the Tech thank's for the Memory. Don,
