    I believe that BILLY BUDD, the extraordinary film from 1962 (and actor Peter Ustinov's only directorial effort), belongs now to Warner Bros, as other Allied Artists films such as HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL and MAN WHO WOULD BE KING have been released to DVD by them. The film has been given couple of widescreen showings by TCM, but this is such a good work that a DVD is really very desirable.Much of the cast survives for potential supplementary material.

    I'm dying to see this film on DVD. For years I was hoping that it would wind up on Laser. Please Warner, put this on your schedule.
