    One thing that I've been noticing a lot lately is that studios are pretty regular in releasing not-so-popular movies on DVD, obviously without much fanfare or advertising, but they're releasing them nonetheless. I've been hoping that "High Road to China" would be included in that, but I haven't seen anything about it. I'm considering transferring my laserdisc over to DVD-R, but not if it's scheduled for release anytime soon.

    Has anyone heard anything about this possibly being released on DVD? Does Warner still own the rights to it?

    I would love to see this as well. Hey John your laserdisc is P&S isnt it? I dont remember there being a widescreen laser of it.

    I know I'd buy a copy if they put it out.

    I love this movie! I would buy the DVD in a heartbeat if it ever appeared. It was made by Weintraub Entertaininment I believe - and I think Golden Harvest might have been involved. Not sure who owns these catalogues now...

    Great cast (Tom Selleck, Bess Armstrong) and tremendous John Barry score!

    I love this movie as well. It always annoys me when people talk it down and call it an Indiana Jones rip-off. I thought it was terrific and absolutely loved the battle scenes and the ending.

    I would most certainly buy an anamorphic OAR DVD of High Road to China. Fun movie, great score!

    At this stage, I just want something better than the laserdisc. [​IMG]

    It's owned by Warner Brothers and no, it is not anywhere on the radar.
