    ...I had an earlier thread in here with about 30 signees, but I decided to start a new one with BOLD subject heading...
    In your last chat, Peter, you mentioned that JTTCOTE had escaped your attention, and you would look into it;
    But as I look at a recent list of proposed 2002 titles, it was nowhere to be found.
    It was, I believe restored or remastered for the very good (THX?) LD back in 1998,so it shouldnt take too much time.
    This is one of the CLASSIC- FOX films...Heres hoping we will see it soon.

    In fact, it's surprising the film isn't on DVD yet. It's great, cheesy fun (love those Iguana-based "dinosaurs" and Pat Boone's pathetic attempt at a Scottish accent). Yet I just love watching this thing.

    I guess it can be called cheesy, but for me it still retains all the power and excitement I got from it at age 10 (I guess that's true of any good movie you see as a kid). And one thing can never be taken away from it: Bernard Herrmann's score is one of the five best ever written for a fantasy/sci-fi film.
    Please, Mr. Staddon - can you find a way to put this on the fast track?

    The Hermann score and James Mason's performance are what make this one fun for me.

    This was one of my absolute favorites when I was growing up - I used to scour the TV Guide every week hoping it was on the 4:30 movie. (This is long before the days of home video, gang!) Finally saw a CinemaScope print in the mid-1980's - it was astounding. I'd love to introduce this movie to my 6-year-old son, he'd love it! C'mon, Fox...

    Count me in, love this movie, James Mason as Prof.Lindenbrook is great as always, and another superb Bernard Herrmann score.
    This and that other Jules Verne classic '20,000 Leagues under the sea' with James Mason as Captain Nemo will hopefully be on my DVD shelves sometime next year, mmmmm.

    I’d love to replace my widescreen LD. I’d also expect that the extras would inlcude the alternate and additional scenes included as a bonus on the LD.

    Does Mr. Staddon post to these threads anymore, or do we only have Mr. Blythe at Paramount?

    Make it the UNCENSORED, uncut, roadshow release; not the cut LD version.
