    King Kong is supposed to be undergoing a restoration similar to Citizen Kane; it may be out this year. Just recently, Swing Time has been mentioned for a release this year. The others, I have no idea.

    My Darling Clementine is a FOX title.

    I think someone asked about it at a past Fox chat...

    Actually, it just needs a retransfer since the film was restored a few years ago.

    King Kong is being digitally restored as is Swing Time.

    Greed just needs a DVD made since it was recently restored AND reconstructed. The 240 min. film, plus a 5.1 track of Robert Israel's score, a commentary (Rick Schmidlan (sic), Rudy Behlmer, and perhaps Kevin Brownlow), and even the segment about Greed from "Hollywood"!

    Patrick, I think you're the man I need to be talking to. You seem to be in the know about alot of the titles I'm dying to own on dvd.
    Greed is a film I have never seen and am chomping at the bit to own and view.
    Since Turner owns it and produced the VHS, will they do the DVD too? What's their track record with getting titles like this out? The only thing I can go on is other Warner titles I own like The Big Sleep and Citizen Kane, the latter took forever to come out. But the edition that is out is so very nice.
    Any guesses on when it will be out, Greed that is.
    I hope King Kong and Swing Time come out in 2002, that would be welcome news as these are two other releases that I absolutely must have in my collection of films.
    As for the other Warner titles, I just found something on another site that says McCabe and Mrs. Miller is due out later this year from Warner, so that's good.
    Might I ask you about other titles, older titles that are non-Warner?
