    Does anyone know if there are any plans to release this film, or if this film has ever been released in any Region on DVD?

    About a month ago I tried to order this title on DVD-R from Crimson Cult Video. During the process of transfering the film apparently the source material they were using suffered damage & the transfer could not be completed. I cancelled the order, as that was an option being offered. They were going to contact me when a new source material was obtained. They have not yet emailed me, but the company is going thru a move so I doubt they have had the time to email me. Once they are open for ordering again I'll contact them at their new email address & find out if new source material has been obtained. I have placed one prior order with Crimson Cult, so this is a place that I think is safe to order from.

    This movie is a cult favorite of mine and, yes it is very offensive. I love to quote in my feeble attempt to imitate James Mason -- "Bring me the Mandingo."

    Drum is out on DVD in region 2?!! Wow. I've never seen it, but heard it was more of the same crazines that Mandingo was.

    The original laserdisc was full screen, so I opted to stay away from this one. Where in R2 is Drum available?

    I watched this as a kid, 15 some years ago. I only remember the pitchfork at his point, and I wish I could erase it from my mind. Despite the absence of further specifics, this movie left a deep impression on my mind, as probably the most unpleasant, most hateful screening experience in my life.

    Why the hell did my parents (who were usually much more careful) let me watch this thing? [​IMG].

    I usually try to look at this subject matter with objectivity, but in this case, I just can't. What an ugly, ugly film.

    Good luck ever seeing this on R1 DVD from Paramount.

    I'd like to see the look on Martin Blythe's face as he responds to queries for this and, yes, the Paramount-distributed "The Legend of Nigger Charley" and "The Soul of Nigger Charley" starring Fred Williamson. No, I'm not making those titles up. And yes, they came from Paramount.

    I think we have a better chance of seeing Song of the South on DVD than this movie. This was a vile, crude, and terrible flick. Susan George was one of the hottest and sexiest woman in the 70's though [​IMG] . The only reason to try to sit through this travesty. But, for fans of the film I hope Martin has good news for you someday.

    Will the people at Paramount ever release this superb film from 1975 on DVD?

    I've wondered this myself, and I would actually like to have this film on DVD, but as much as I like it, I still wouldn't actually refer to it as a "superb film." LOL
