I was just thinking about this movie the other day, and how much I would love to see a good DVD made available. Hopefully someone has some info. Mr. Harris, perhaps?

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences (or was it the Cinemateque?) had a screening of the "restored" Becket just this month. A DVD release would seem imminent.

yes BECKET is one I've been waiting for . I hope the DVD is soon and does the film justice.
It was screened at the Academy in Beverly Hills last week. It was touted as a the West Coast premiere screening of the completely restored "hard to see" film. It premiered in London in November 2003.
It also said on the Academy website--"Print courtesy of PARAMOUNT PICTURES" I wonder if that means the Paramount has the rights back to this film?

Unfortunately, MPI is not one of the smaller companies that actually answers e-mails. I have inquired about this title off and on for ages.

Jeffery Wells talked about Becket today in his column. He doesn't think there will be a DVD release until next year:

The good news is, Peter O'Toole has done a commentary track.

I have always said that once a film has been 'restored', the next step should be creating a hi-def, anamorphic transfer.

I guess that time will tell if this has been the case with Becket, which is one of favourite historical dramas.

Any news on this title?

A year ago, it sounded like the release was imminent, but since then, I haven't seen anything about tit. Anyone know of any problems or issues holding this back.

One of my most wanted titles, and I'm getting impatient.

Thanks,

JGreen
