    I'd really like to see Columbia release this taut Cold War thriller. It is a damned good movie starring two great actors: Sidney Poitier & Richard Widmark. My VHS tape is going to wear out soon! This film was to receive a widescreen Laserdisc release a few years ago, but unfortunately it never was released.

    It is really hard to believe that no one else on this forum is a fan of this film. Only 2 views up to this point?? I would have thought that at least one Sidney Poitier fan would have replied. [​IMG]

    I posted this in the correct area for this type of post, [​IMG] but maybe I should have put it in the Software section where by default it would get at least a few more views & maybe a couple of replies. To me this film is at least: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'd buy a DVD, too. I watched the film on TCM last night at 11:00 PM (California time).

    Also, I agree,the film was never released on LD domestically. However, I had heard the film was released on LD in Japan -- which must be true, as a Japanese copy is currently up for auction on EBay. I'm tempted to submit a bid myself.

    Waiting ten years is nothing, I've been waiting for "The High And The Mighty" on any video format for over 20 years.[​IMG] Luckily, I'm a patient man, otherwise, I'll be bouncing off the walls.[​IMG] By the way, my reference to patience was about people responding to this thread.

    I'd love to have "The High And The Mighty" also. 20+ yrs is about how long it has been since I last saw it on TV. But no one did respond until I posted the plea about replying. I'm sure there would have been a faster reply if I had posted it in the "wrong" section(Software).
