I don't know about those other two, but All About Eve could stand a better transfer.
Are they getting new transfers or are these re-packaged re-priced re-promotions? Regards,
I agree All About Eve needs a make over but How Green Was My Valley and Gentlemen's Agreement look just fine on DVD.
Hopefully, the remaining 11 titles will include some of the following Fox best picture Oscar winners/nominees in their DVD debuts and not recycled titles already on DVD:
All That Jazz, Decision Before Dawn, Diary Of Anne Frank, Hello Dolly, Julia, Les Miserables, Letter To Three Wives, Peyton Place, The Razor's Edge, The Snake Pit, Song Of Bernadette, Sons And Lovers, Three Coins In The Fountain, The Turning Point,
I've been expecting this announcement for a while from Fox and the initial three releases in January are welcome because in my opinion, the previously released dvds of those films were in need of improvement. Crawdaddy
Laura should be in the mix somewhere.
It is along with My Darling Clementine. However, which month for their releases is still not announced. Crawdaddy
THE GRAPES OF WRATH. This movie stuns me every time I catch it on TV! Can't wait to own this one.
this is absolutely great news indeed and 2003 looks like my dvd collection will be expanded even more with the early claasics like Sunrise, How Green and many others
Three cheers to Fox
Ken, These are new transfers. Crawdaddy
Wow, this announcement is getting better and better. I'm usually clueless as to which studio owns what, so I had no idea what other titles might be in the works.
I'm officially excited now.
This is even better news that these dvds are getting new transfers
I hope they get THE AFRICAN QUEEN out quick, one of my personal faves which hasn't yet hit DVD for some reason.
The African Queen is now controlled by MGM.
Great news on the release of a number of older classics. I sincerely hope that these films do well for Fox. ( I will be making my contributions. ) As the studios continue to mine their catalogs, 2003 may be shaping up as one of the best years ever for DVD from the perspective of lovers of classic cinema. I certainly hope so.
Although I'm thrilled that these films are coming to DVD (in better editions, at least), I am somewhat disappointed that I can't simply go out and buy Sunrise, which is actually one of the only things I wanted to buy. Oh well...
Jeremy, Maybe, you can, the article just says that if you buy those three dvds then you'll be given a free dvd of Sunrise. Crawdaddy
Fox, you have just given a huge kick in the face to silet cinema fans. While the titles are good (I am only interested in Grapes of Wrath and My Darling Clementine), but what the HELL is the idea making people buy 3 DVD's to get one they want?
I'm posting in studio feedback...I want to pay for the DVD I want to get.
Yeah, I was wondering about Sunrise's individual availability myself.
As of right now, looking over the small sampling of titles mentioned, the only other out-and-out purchase I'm guaranteed to be making is The Grapes of Wrath (this is not to say that the other films are not great,however--I'm pleased Fox is releasing them).
Therefore, providing that it's only available promotionally, getting Sunrise would necessitate purchasing an additional title that I wouldn't otherwise buy (again, this only applies to the small group of announced films above). I would consider Sunrise the third paid-for DVD in the equation and the actual paid-for third film the free disc.
Nevertheless, my adoration of Sunrise is such that I would purchase an extra DVD if need be, but I'd rather not, if possible. (Being a poor college student doesn't mesh well with having such a potentially expensive hobby )
I'm with the others who disagree about using Sunrise as a freebie. Honestly, it would've beeen the only title I would've seen myself buying in the immediate future, and this announcement is a ridiculous disappoinment. No sale Fox. -g
