    I do hope Fox will release The Egyptian soon. One of my favorite films, with a great cast, fascinating story and wonderful music. Also, I hope Fox will issue the restored version of The Robe.

    I too want the Egyptian. The Robe has NOT been restored by Fox - just a new prnt made.
    The already released DVD of The Robe looks and sounds great. Would lvoe to see the alternate flat version of the Robe on DVD. Around 1992 a stereo track for the Flat version was found.
    BTW - Varese Soundtrack club just announced the release NEXT WEEK of a 2 cd set of the Robe. Only two minor cues are missing.

    Wouldn't it be nice if they released this with directional dialog, which the Dolby mixes generally ruin? In fact, are there any DVD's out there with directional dialog? I will start a thread to find out...

    Since it came up at at the other night's chat with Peter Staddon, I would like to add my vote for THE EGYPTIAN

    Yes, there's an official DVD of The Egyptian out in Spain since May 13, 2009. [​IMG] I received my copy yesterday, and I'm absolutely thrilled.

    It has a beautiful anamorphic widescreen transfer in 2.55:1, stereophonic sound in English and mono in Spanish. Subtitles only in Spanish.

    It's this one here: Sinuhé el Egipto - Comprar películas en dvd de Todo Clásicos [​IMG]

    If so, this the first Fox dvd release in any country for The Egyptian. If we get in the U S I hope it has a 4.0 track inswtead of a 2.0.

    But right now Fox is doing nothing.


    This year we have h3ead a rerelease of The Robe, (with most extras only on the blu ray version !!), Man Hunt, hardly a major title, and another reissue of Diary of Anne Frank that looks like it will still be missing the two pieces of music (exit music act One and Entracte).

    I try to link some images directly, though I fear I shouldn't actually do so... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    What a great cover! Now how do I buy it? I wish Amazon had a branch in Spain.

    EDIT. I see I can buy this on ebay for £23.49 (free p&p). If I wait a bit it might be a bit cheaper. Wouldn't it be funny if I could get a R2 before the USA gets a R1 - esp. from Fox!!!

    Does Spain mean PAL which means 4% speedup.
    I don't want that incredible score "f--ked" up.

    Managed to buy this when I was in Spain last week. Picture quality is excellent as is the 2 channel stereo sound, which retains dialogue directionality. Unfortunately my copy was missing the advertised 36 page booklet.
