    I consider myself lucky to have seen Ann Reinking perform live on stage in a revival of Bye Bye Birdie (with Tommy Tune). She is quite a dancer, and one of the reasons I hold All That Jazz so dear.

    This is also a brazen repost from the "Criterion Blu" thread:

    Thanks for that, Mike. I followed the link and got to see the Bye Bye Life production number which ended the movie. This is going to be a stunning blu-ray!

    I assume it would be left right surround with a phantom center as typical with dolby ltrt tracks?

    I had the privilege of projecting this in 35mm recently, can't wait for this Blu.Curious though - what precisely is Fox's history with the movie? Obviously, it's a co-presentation of Fox and Columbia - neither studio's logo opens the film, it goes straight into opening credits - but during the big dream sequences, the clapboards only list Columbia Pictures, suggesting that Fox came in later, and the print's actual copyright line lists only "Columbia Pictures Industries."Was this one of those situations like Fox had with Paramount on TITANIC, where late in the project Columbia needed a partner to assume some of the ballooning budget, and in exchange for the funds, the original studio completely gave up domestic rights to the film?

    But a Dolby LT/RT track would be encoded as 2-channel.

    This was not a Dolby Stereo film. IIRC, there were some mag stereo prints, so 3.0 would be an accurate representation of the original mix (4-track stereo with no surrounds). This has never been a very surround-heavy film to begin with.

    Absolutely correct. When we played ALL THAT JAZZ I was surprised it was not in Dolby Stereo. I even called Fox to make sure we did not get a wrong print. We spent a pretty penny on equipping our Theatres with Dolby Stereo and constantly spent days making sure we had correct prints that were Dolby encoded. Ah, those were the days!

    As soon as I made my original post (which I have now removed), I suddenly had a look at a copy of the original poster on eBay, and there was no mention of Dolby Stereo on there. It seems unless otherwise specified on the poster, a film was always recorded in mono originally. The film made its home video debut in 1980, and stereo-recorded VHS was introduced in 1982.
