    Today at work (Wal-Mart) we were told to pull all Gettysburg titles off the shelves. The note only said there was a dispute between the writers and the studio. Does any one know what this is about????

    My guess is they're pulling it out of print temporarily, only to rerelease it once Gods & Generals comes out on DVD.

    I wouldn't worry too much... even IQ-challenged Warner DVD execs can probably see the (monetary) advantages of putting Gettysburg back on the shelf along with G&G when its out. [​IMG]

    I knew I should have bought it a Best Buy last weekend when I had it in my paws. I hope they keep it on the shelves.

    Well, I was about to ask if I should get the DVD. Looks like I'll get it now.

    Glad I already have a copy on DVD and LD. But too bad they don't release an extended cut of Gettysburg like they did with the laserdisc.

    I almost bought this last weekend in anticipation of seeing "God and Generals" but I became hesitant when I realized this was 4+ hour movie with extras all on one disc. How is the picture quality?

    I agree with the above opinion that this is probably being prepped for a re-release along with "Gods & Generals"

    Eric, it's double-sided.

    I don't know why there would be any dispute, the same people who did GETTYSBURG did GODS AND GENERALS.

    Also heard that GODS will be released in an extended version on DVD. I think the director said it was going to be a 5 hour film on DVD, don't know what it will be thatrically.

    Maybe (wishful thinking) they'll release the extended version of Gettysburg, too.

    Hope they had an intermission. That's beyond bladder limits for most folks.

    This doesn't have anything to do with Ted Turner's well-publicized exit from AOL Time Warner, does it? I wouldn't think so, but you never know.

    I agree the longer Director's Cut of GETTYSBURG should have been put out on DVD. Glad I still have my laserdisc (complete with the "authentic Civil War bullet"!).
