Maybe because it's now part of their preminium "Paramount Presents" line with a new scan, allied with the fact we're all home waiting for those Warner Archive Blus to arrive with nothing else to do.There didn't appear to be much interest on the Forum in the announcement for the 1st blu ray release of this film. Only 3 posts, two of which were the announcement and a price drop notification.

I liked Ali McGraw much more in Goodbye Columbus and i did view the dvd a few months ago.
OK but the one person who commented on the quality of the original release on the other thread , Haineshisway, said of that release ,Maybe because it's now part of their preminium "Paramount Presents" line with a new scan, allied with the fact we're all home waiting for those Warner Archive Blus to arrive with nothing else to do.
Without Francis Lai, I wonder if Love Story would have evoked all the tears of its audience. IMHO, his score is at the core of this films success.
I liked Ali McGraw okay enough, but I never understood all the fuss over Jenny.
Now you’ve done it, Michael. Now you’ve really gone and done it. You’ve said Oliver’s Story. AND you’ve said it out loud. Now Paramount is gonna be compelled to announce that one, too. OMG, there goes another month.I reviewed the original Blu-ray (can't find the link) and I'm not sure how much better they can make it, except by merely being higher resolution and capturing, in theory, all picture info in the 35mm negative.
Oliver's Story showed that he was the more insufferable of the two by far without her around. One of the worst sequels to a successful movie I've ever seen*; they should have called it "Shut Up, Preppy!"
*Until Michael Eisner moved from Paramount to Disney to eventually negate many of the good things he did there with similarly execrable sequels to hit films.
Yes, she was better in GOODBYE COLUMBUS (a Blu-ray I would buy if released), but for me, that's like saying Keanu Reeves was better in CHAIN REACTION than he was in JOHNNY MNEMONIC.
