From DVDTalk.com: Eric Doctrow Resigns From Paramount LOS ANGELES (AP) - The head of Paramount Pictures Corp.'s home entertainment division resigned abruptly and will be replaced by a veteran video executive from Warner Bros. Eric Doctorow, who spent 20 years at Paramount's video unit, stepped down Thursday. Paramount would only say that Doctorow left to ``pursue other interests and to seek new challenges.'' He was credited with helping push the direct sale of videocassettes in the late 1980s and was responsible for the launch of ``Titanic'' on video and DVD. He'll be replaced by Tom Lesinski, who aggressively marketed DVDs to consumers while he was at Warner Bros. Doctorow is the third top home video chief to leave a studio in the last month. Patricia Wyatt left 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment to form a film company. Warren Lieberfarb, the ``godfather of DVD,'' left Warner Bros. last month after 20 years. Lieberfarb, who won an Emmy in 1999 for his efforts to develop, launch and establish DVD technology, was replaced by James Cardwell. Hmmm, the strangest feeling...I keep wanting to hum a song from The Wizard of Oz...Weird... Seriously though, they have nowhere to go but up. I consider this extremely good news.
