    I'll definitely be picking up the SE's of Leone's films. Pity we have to wait until late 2005.

    About time we got an SE DVD for The Graduate(not to mention an anamorphic transfer). Good thing I stopped myself from ordering it the other day.

    I just want to know if the Leone films will be packaged together in some sort of box-set / collection as I've held off this long on the GTBATU S.E.?

    Marco, the information right now is that the boxset will comprise A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and Duck You Sucker, you can go ahead and buy The Good, The Bad & The Ugly...

    Thanks John, it would've made more sense for the Eastwood flicks to all be packaged together as one unit, but if that's the case, I'm not complaining!

    I've been waiting years for a "Spaceballs" Special Edition, and we're hopefully going to get one at last.

    I hope this is true...I heard there was 40 minutes of footage that didn't make it into the movie.

    Sincerely,

    John Kilduff...

    The 3 things that need to be on the "Spaceballs" DVD: The bleeps, the sweeps and the creeps.

    The Graduate SE! YES!! I'm so happy! One of the first DVDs I ever bought was the original SE (which by today's standards isn't very special), but the transfer is non-anamorphic and just faded and not very good. Would be nice to have a commentary or two, the works... Cannot wait!

    Spaceballs Special Edition?????

    I'd be all over that in a heartbeat! I would definitely love to see all of this deleted footage I keep hearing so much about. Definitely a hilarious film from my yout. I'll gladly double dip.

    THE GRADUATE is out in Korea-it is Anamorphic and a beautiful print-but no extras. It is R0-but with forced subs

    I'll probably double dip for the two Leone Dollars films. Duck You Sucker is a must have! [​IMG]

    That's funny...I almost bought it the other day as well. After seeing Simon & Garfunkel in concert this past summer I've been itching to pick up the DVD. Fortunately, I stopped myself, too.

    I bet Spaceballs:SE comes out right around April/May to capitalize on the release of Revenge of the Sith on May 19. Perfect timing.
