    Well Fox announced another batch of DVD titles & still there is NO release date for a R1 "All That Jazz"! Fox continues to fumble the ball on this title for region one. For those of you blessed with a multi-region player I heartily recommend the R2 version. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Jeff,
    I think "All That Jazz" will be released in 2003, but not until Fox feels it can maximize sales of this title, perhaps by releasing some other Fox musicals at the same time.

    I personally don't care how long they sit on their hands with this title in terms of a R1 release. I can enjoy my R2 version. I really feel sorry for the fans of this film who are not blessed with a multi-region DVD player. They must do without while Fox tries to figure out when to finally push this long delayed DVD out the door.

    I have a couple of multi-region players, but I'm still waiting on the Region 1 dvd.

    I just prefer the dvd presentations of Region 1 dvds over other regions and with 1800 dvds in my collection, I have more than enough dvds to allow me some patience in waiting for titles that I know are going to be released soon in Region 1. Also, I've seen portions of the Region 1 dvd.

    Sounds reasonable to me Robert. My own desire was to not wait for Fox to make up their minds about it, particularly since I had multi-region PAL to NTSC capability.

    Triage restored All That Jazz for Fox and that is the version which will be on DVD. The company, run by Paul Rutan Jr., also did the outstanding image restorations for Help!

    That being said, this DVD ought to look fantastic. I think it's supposed to be a 5-Star title as well. (Anyone confirm this?)

    i was under the impression that, all other things being equal, that a PAL disc would trump an NTSC because of more lines of resolution, no?
    happily i don't have a concious problem with the notorious PAL speed up. the movie looked great, and sounded pretty good. not alot of special features, but i usually don't care about those anyway.

    when did the rumours surface of this being a 5 star?
