    Which is the correct/true Scarface DVD?? Looking to get a copy but I hear there are a lot of fakes. Which one should I look out for? Looking to order thru Amazon I see roughly between $43-$69 used. Know of any other places to get besides ebay?

    Thanks

    I purchased a used copy of SCARFACE Collector's Edition DVD for $9.99 last year from a local supermarket chain's DVD/Video rental department. That was the last time I saw the DVD in any store.
    What's the scoop on the fakes?

    This was the first DVD I bought. I remember spending countless hours adjusting my set, thinking that the picture quality was so crappy due to a mis-calibration...

    The fake version has a DTS banner and the seller is usually from Hong Kong.

    There are so many people out there trying to sell this online and a bunch of them are claiming DTS tracks. Which is the the one to look out for?

    The UPC# on the official Universal release is: 0-2519-20175-2-0. Don't be fooled by most of the Scarface DVD's for sale on eBay. Many sellers are listing these DTS or Special Edition DVD's as the genuine version of the "Collector's Edition", when it's not! The vast majority you see are the Asian Imports that were produced without consent of Universal pictures. They are bootlegs and it's a shame people are actually buying them thinking they got the real thing. Universal Pictures has NEVER published an "ENHANCED SPECIAL EDITION" or "DTS" version of Scarface.

    The Pal Anamorphic R2 dvd looks fantastic....and is in discrete 4.0 dolby digital...it looks and sounds many times better than the R1 edition - well worth the £10 you can get it on-line for.

    Holy crap.

    Even working just the three days a week at Suncoast, I get no less than 20-30 requests for this disc a week. My manager tells me a 20th Anniversary Edition is in the works for next year but I have yet to see any proof of this.

    Hey Universal. Put this disc on the fast track. I'd like to sell these discs instead of constantly turning people away.

    In the San Francisco Bay area there are LOTS of used CD/DVD stores. I saw 3 original (used) copies of SCARFACE last Friday at 3 different stores. Each one was being sold at $79.99. When these stores have them they have xerox copies of the artwork in the package and a sticky stating they can be piced up at the counter. One of the rumors has been that Universal was doing a Ultimate Edition. So far I've seen nothing more than these rumors. One of them had the movie being rescore by rappers...
    I saw one 6 months ago for $39.99 I wish I had purchased it to sell on EBay! [​IMG]

    I'd love to see this film re-released and re-mastered on DVD and part of a set with the original 1932 Paul Muni Scarface.
