Jeff, you beat me to it. I got this e-mail from DVD Empire just now. In addition, they are saying The Ox-Bow Incident has been moved from 12/2 up to Laura's 11/4 release date.
Anybody have any idea what's going on with these Fox Studio Classic releases??
Amazon has not taken it down yet, but I'm not going to hold my breath. At least I still have my Laserdisc of "Laura". This is going to be a BITTER shame if this is a permanent cancellation. I sincerely hope that it is just a delay for some good reason.
Got this e-mail from DVDEmpire:
"Fox has just notified us that they have cancelled the 11/4/2003
release of "Laura." The title has been removed from the schedule and
replaced with the "Ox-Bow Incident" which will be moved from 12/2/2003 and
will now street on 11/4/2003.
Anyone know anymore about this? Will it be rescheduled or is there no news on any future release? I was really looking forward to this classic.
Sad news, if true...
So many films, so little time...
God I hope not. By far the best of the upcoming Fox classics, it would really suck to see this one pulled.
I already started a thread about this. Use the search function. Please merge these threads.
Relax. It´s just a delay.
As several people have already stated, this is one of the cornerstones of the Fox Classics library. I highly doubt that they would cancel this title.
It is most likely that new source material or supplemental material showed up and they're going to push it back.
This is what happened to "The Grapes of Wrath" which is rumored to be out early next year. It also might be a strategic move, to hold one of the prominent titles over to next year, since there has been some talk about what the big titles are going to be for next year.
Well we won't know for sure until there is some sort of official anouncement. The faster FOX issues an anouncement, the less speculating there will be.
Noooooooooooooooooooo!!!!! This is truly sad. Why oh why did it have to be this title? Deepdiscountdvd.com didn't notify me yet but I don't hold too much hope.
According to Amazon:
This item will be released on November 4, 2003. You may order it now and we will ship it to you when it arrives.
Oops. Sorry. I was under the impression that Laura was going to be released OCTOBER 4, 2003.
Relax everyone, nothing's been confirmed either way yet.
I'd bet DVD Empire have just got their dates/facts mixed up. Fox wouldn't pull the plug on such a long-awaited title...would they?
Major bummer. If DVD Empire goofed, it would be a pretty huge one.....
I can only assume I'll be watching my VHS copy for the forseeable future.
I remember years ago there was some contractural problems to do with music in the film. Can't remember anymore than that as it was about 10-15 years ago (well before DVD). Maybe this issue has raised its head again?
Or maybe there is a quality control issue as with "The 300 Spartans" and it has been put back till a later date.
Or maybe there are some new extras/ better elements which are now to be used.
This classic Gene Tierney film is a wonderful example of 1940s film noir as released by 20th Century Fox and I just hope Peter Staddon at Fox is reading this, so he can put us all out of our misery???
