Frustrating! Mr C maybe u saw my post about 1951s classic Scrooge starring Alastair Sim, VCI had the USA vid rights for decades and they took such great care of the film. They had the film through Fox and lost the film when Fox sold to Disney. Disney has ZERO interest in a 1951 Brit film not produced by them so the film is in limbo. VCI has tried to reach out to Disney to get the film back but the House of Mouse is just too big. I asked Leonard Maltin because he knows both VCI and he continues his work with Disney he was kind enough to pass it along to a contact he knows so who knows.Without disc or digital revenue there is little motivation for the Disney bean counters to see that those Fox titles survive period.
