    I apologize if this was asked and answered before, I could not find such a post by searching.

    Have any movies been released on DVD that were NOT released on LD (and I am NOT counting those movies that fell into the time period between the birth of DVD and the death of LD; nor am I including any movies that were made/released to theaters after the advent of DVD)?

    I guess another way to put it: were any movies (given the time constraints I explained above) released on DVD that either had NEVER been released before for home use (legally) or only on VHS/BETA?

    Thanks,

    Sam

    Off the top of my head, "The Gypsy Moths" with Burt Lancaster and Gene Hackman was never released on any video format until dvd.

    'Mr. Majestyk" was never released on LD; a lot of Anchor Bay's/Blue Underground's/Synapse's releases have never been legitimately released on either LD or VHS either (Django Kill, etc.)
