    Anyone know whom I should be nagging to release this criminally underrated late Billy Wilder masterpiece on DVD? I know Warner issued it on laserdisc, but the original production deal on this movie was quite complicated, so I'm not sure whether they have the DVD rights.

    It is indeed Warner who should be pestered (not that it will do much good). It was indeed a complicated list of producers, but it came together as a Lorimar production, thus it falls under Warner's domain by their acquistion of Lorimar's assets.

    One of Wilder's most underrated films. Luckily I own the laser but I would love to own the DVD.
