Warner Brothers: This wonderful LaserDisc title has rotted. Might this title be released on DVD so that i might again watch it?...

Did your laserdisc have the original stereo soundtrack?
Warners quietly included it on their later VHS hi-fi and
AMC broadcast around 1999. Hmmm.. Hey WB, the audio would
once again work great the original 3-D photography.

Side 2 of my HOUSE OF WAX LD has rotted also. Please, Warner, mend your ways and make this available on DVD, preferably with the stereo soundtrack, audio commentary and/or video interviews with still-living HOUSE OF WAX director Andre De Toth, and co-star Phyllis Kirk, well as the lone WB cartoon that was originally shot in 3-D, Chuck Jones' LUMBERJACK RABBIT (starring Bugs Bunny), included as extras. Including bonus trailers for Hitchcock's 3-D DIAL M FOR MURDER (1953), CRIME WAVE (1954, also directed by De Toth and co-starring Phyllis Kirk), THEM (1954) and THE BEAST FROM TWENTY THOUSAND FATHOMS (1953), all WB films which deserve DVD release, would be a nice touch.

Cannot begin to tell you how happy I would be if this film was to see the light of day soon on DVD...

My laser of this film rotted away 5 years ago, and I was unable to get a replacement copy from Pioneer. I would love to see this film on DVD along with at all the many, many, many other Horror films Warner has locked up in their dungeon.

Warner Brothers actually released this gem in field-
sequential 3-D via the the now extinct VHD videodisc
format in Japan. VHD was inferior to the Pioneer LD
format, and there were subtitles, but the field-sequential
3-D itself was *sweet*!
WB needs to go 'back to the future' and re-release
this classic 3-D film in field-sequential 3-D ..along
with the restored stereo/surround mix. (If memory
serves me right, this was also WB's first film with
stereo and rear surround audio.)
