    I just hope it's the pre-'86 UA library (or around that time), and that it gets purchased by a company that will take care of and restore classic titles properly, such as "It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World"...

    The portion which doesn't include James Bond or the Pink Panther.

    For some reason I feel like Warner Brothers might buy United Artists. They weren't able to get the whole MGM/UA shebang last year, so this may be their chance to claim a piece of it.

    Sincerely,

    John Kilduff...

    It's pure speculation on my part.

    Whoever gets the video rights to their films, I hope they STOP changing the opening United Artists intros like they seem to have been since the 80s. If the movie came out when they were A Transamerica Company, that's what I want to see at the beginning!

    So do I. Some Like it Hot, West Side Story, Mad World, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, the early Bond films, et al are NOT true Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer films. Their logo should not be there unless it is in addition to the original UA logos.
