    Mr. Martin Blythe or whomever can answer this....

    Is there any chance that the classic 1969 film LAST SUMMER, starring Barbara Hershey and Oscar nominee Catherine Burns, may ever be released on DVD?

    I love this movie and I'd like to see the fully uncut version released on DVD.

    LAST SUMMER is owned by Warner Bros., not Paramount, through their acquisition of the Allied Artists library.

    Paramount does own some good Frank Perry-directed films, including MAN ON A SWING and COMPROMISING POSITIONS, that are not on DVD.

    Another vote for Last Summer , Frank Perry's excellent follow-up to The Swimmer . Excellent performances from the very young cast of Barbara Hershey, Bruce Davison, Richard Thomas, and Catherine Burns (who we never really much more of).

    It remains one of the more interesting and lasting films of the period, very few of which have yet seen DVD release.

    I didn't know Warner Brothers had acquired this film. Glad to see someone else has heard of this film and enjoyed it.
