    Why?

    Warner Home Video is simply re-doing the artwork for Citizen Kane & Dr. Zhivago to now say:

    "Two-Disc Special Edition"

    In fact, on September 24th, 2002, four new "Two-Disc Special Edition" titles street from Warner Home Video...

    True Romance
    Singing In The Rain
    Unforgiven
    Amadeus

    Since WHV indicated that these new releases would be equal to the two-disc sets for Citizen Kane & Dr. Zhivago, it would make sense to make new slightly new artwork for these older releases that match the new releases.

    Same content, slightly different cover art.

    Methinks this will be part of a WB promotion at the big B&Ms, meaning a temporary sale price. I can finally justify having held off on buying Kane!

    Of course, however much money I save on CK will go straight to True Romance, Amadeus, Cuckoo's Nest, Heavenly Creatures, Swingers, Spellbound, The Grifters, Trading Places, and A Hard Day's Night.

    I need to go sit down and have a good cry about now.

    On the bright side, that night will be the US premiere of Buffy. Which is nice.

    Back on my meds,
