    I saw this film decades ago. Starred Mark Lester and Tracy Hyde. I think it was issued on DVD in Hong Kong a couple of
    years back.Any idea if there will be a US print ? Or a
    a reissue ?

    I think I have that Hong Kong DVD. It's certainly from the East, though it may be a bootleg, I'm not certain.

    It's full-frame (open-matte, but the credits get clipped slightly), seriously ropey quality at times, the sound is nothing to shout about, but it's such an impossibly rare film to track down I put up with it! The subtitles are also optional, which is nice.

    I can only assume that rights over the BeeGees soundtrack is what's holding it in limbo, as it's a very popular little film indeed.
