Will this stay missing in action?
'New Faces' of 1954 was the film realisation of the very famous stage revue 'New Faces of 1952'. I have the original RCA theatre soundtrack and the even better Jasmine (UK) CD version which boasts very robust sound. But I would love to be able to see this on screen again. It would appear to be free domain because the only DVDs available are virtuallyu unviewable .. not good enough for a movie which fired the glamorous and sexy Eartha Kitt into orbit. With comedy sketches by Mel Brooks and others, and a great cast including Robert Clary (Hogans Heroes), New Faces deserves new life.

I'd love to see this CinemaScope movie rescued from public domain hell! However, I stand to be corrected but this movie was originally released by 20th Century Fox, now "owned" by Disney, who I imagine has the original film elements needed for a HD restoration. Which sadly means ..... the likelihood of a restored blu ray is nil. :(

Yes, it's a great memento of a legendary Broadway revue, the longest running of all the editions of New Faces and one that introduced a great many performers who would grow in the public's consciousness over the next few decades. I have an old pan and scan VHS of it, but would love something better. Here's hoping!
