I tried to add to an earlier thread on this movie but had some trouble. Anyway, the long-delayed DVD releases of Fred Schepisi's CHANT OF JIMMY BLACKSMITH and DEVIL'S PLAYGROUND are now much closer, following the resolution of certain issues. (I mentioned in an earlier thread on this movie that Schepisi and others had been 'lazy' in working on getting the DVD out, which was bogus - other, more serious issues had delayed work on the DVD). Schepisi recorded excellent new commentary tracks for these movies in Melbourne just last week, interviews have been done with him and other members of the cast and crew for BLACKSMITH, and the S.E DVD's of these movies (coming out in both Australia and as a Region 1 DVD in the US) now aren't too far away.
