    Why have the Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers musicals not been released on DVD ? Could there release be tied up in the same estate problems that have occured in other areas ?
    A box set of these titles including the RKO titles plus the Barkleys of Broadway at MGM would be a sure winner.

    I think that some of the Astaire/Rogers films are coming from Warners. No official annoucement yet, but work does seem to have been started some time ago, so I would have thought an annoucement must be imminent.
    As yet no idea what titles might be released, assuming that a box set of all 10 titles at once is out of the question?
    I would guess that Top Hat, Swing Time, Shall We Dance and Follow The Fleet would have to be in the first wave?
