Mr. Blythe has stated before that classics such as Sunset Boulevard, Roman Holiday and To Catch A Thief are candidates for full restoration. I was wondering if we are talking about a painstaking effort a la Vertigo and Rear Window that could delay the DVD releases of these titles for years, or just some digital clean-up that would allow these movies to be released on DVD in the next year or so.
In any case, Mr. Blythe I would appreciate your comments and any tentative time-frames you may have in mind for the highly-anticipated releases of these classics on DVD.

It seems to me that between a year and two years ago, I read in several places that SUNSET BLVD. was already in the process of being worked on for DVD, so Mr. Blythe's most recent comments surprise me - it sounds as though nothing has been started at all. But we should have faith that it will arrive, andlook great when it does.

I don't know if they have started restoration work on these titles or not - separate division of the company. I'm sure when we have an announcement, we'll make it.

I too am looking forward to purchasing To Catch a Thief as soon as Paramount releases it.
