    Hi
    Does anyome know the current status of "The Jazz Singer" with Neil Diamond? Last One I saw had a terrible transfer from some obscure studio called Liberty. I thought Columbia owned the rights? I also thought at one point it was rumored to be on Anchor Bay's to do list?

    I think Paramount controls the rights now.

    No, Paramount had licensed the film from EMI in the '80's for tape, laserdisc, and CED disc, but that license expired long ago.

    THE JAZZ SINGER is part of the StudioCanal library, and Anchor Bay had planned to do a blow-out DTS transfer. I'm sure music rights got in the way. I don't know if they still have the option or not.
