    Earlier this year, Martin Blythe
    indicated the possibility that Milos Forman's 'Ragtime' might be released in region 1 in late 2002. Obviously that is not going to happen, but is this title going to be released in the near future? Thanks!

    Hard to say - depends on filmmaker availability, music clearances - the works!

    Thanks for the info Martin! I truly am hopeful Ragtime manages to find its way to DVD soon. I know it did get released in region 2, so maybe that is a good sign.

    Unfortunately the Region 2 release was only in a full-screen version, so it doesn't really help much. I hope Paramount will be able to sort out the music clearance issues soon and release this great movie sometime during 2003 - it's certainly near the top of my DVD wants list.

    Actually, the region 2 release I saw on ebay was desribed as widescreen 2.35 16/9 Enhanced, although it only had Dolby Digital mono.

    At any rate, I agree 100% this is a great movie, and it certainly deserves the best DVD treatment. It is at the top of my list as well!
