I believe this was a Fox release, but someone correct me if need be.
It is also my FAVORITE Scorsese flick!!

This is in the top 10 of my most wanted titles. I'm also confused over who owns the title. Columbia used to have the rights but I'm not sure who has it now.

And, if I'm not mistaken, this film has never been available in widescreen. Get on this one quick!

This is close to my favourite Scorcese flick as well (tied with Raging Bull and The Last Waltz). I'd buy a copy in a heartbeat, but...
Wouldn't this thread be better in the Studio and Manufacturer Feedback section? :)

I agree that this probably belongs in the Studio Feedback section. There is already a thread there about a Scorsese box set being requested.
As I stated in that thread, I think that the vast majority of Scorsese's movies need to be either re-released with high quality anamorphic transfers, or released for the first time period (like The King of Comedy).
I am a huge Scorsese fan, but I only own Taxi Driver, as that is about the only DVD of his movies that have been done right (as well as perhaps Bringing Out The Dead).
Its sad that this great directors movies have not received better DVD treatment!

Reserve me a copy - TKoC is an underrated gem. I just love that cynical finale! TKoC also gets my award for best use of a song during the closing credits. Van Morrison's Wonderful Remark perfectly encapsulates the movie...

The King Of Comedy, along with After Hours are hands down my favorite black comedies. De Niro and Scorsese always score winning combination, so whoever owns this, give it the release it deserves! You will appease a lot of loyal fans!
