My guess is eitherWell, isn't that irritating.
Legal restrictions on an isolated Entr’acte and Exit score that’s inclusive of an entire film? Well, I guess copyright law has expanded into many more components over the years. I wonder if this aspect of the film falls under a contractual obligation through ASCAP or The Ralph Burns Estate?Sad news for Sweet Charity fans: Indicator posted this in their latest Newsletter: I already have the Kino edition and wanted the Roadshow version as well - have cancelled my pre-order for this.
Sadly, our previously announced SWEET CHARITY specs have had to undergo a change. Owing to legal restrictions, we are unable to present the film in its complete ‘Roadshow’ version, with entr’acte and exit music. Instead, we will be presenting the film in its theatrical version, with options to view with either the overture or the alternative ending. As a result of this setback, both SWEET CHARITY and THE FU MANCHU CYCLE will now be released on 26 October.
Absolutely agree! I remember how thrilled I was when Twilight Time announced a blu ray release of the Technicolor musical Centennial Summer (1946) with Jeanne Crain and Linda Darnell and how equally bummed out when they announced its cancellation due to legal problems.Shouldn’t the legal ends be secured before any announcement, let alone starting work on the physical release?
