    Does anyone have any information about when this is due? I heard they were working on it early last year to be released in 2001. It's still not on the schedule, but I hear it's still planned.

    Anyone know of possible special features? Screen Tests would be great, but I'd really like to see any deleted scenes. I don't think it's slated for a two disc set, so I'm curious what might be planned.

    I am definately looking forward to this one too. Last I heard, it will be out sometime later this year. A new documentary will most likely be included in the supplements.

    I will gladly buy it to replace the flipper I have now. Bring it on. This is one underestimated, unappreciated film.

    My wife is eagerly awaiting the SE's arrival; we've held off on the flipper version for the entire 2½ years we've owned the player, because the SE's been rumored that long!
    In another thread there's discussion of a recent post at The Digital Bits' Rumor Mill section about many SE's on the way for 2002.
    The Color Purple is listed among the titles! Our own Ron Epstein has stated that Bill Hunt's posts there are usually extremely accurate, as Ron has access to much of the same info Bill does.
    So here's hoping!! [​IMG]

    Still no new news on the SE for The Color Purple? At this rate, I would think it'd be Christmas before we see the release.

    I guess I'll have stick with my CAV LD for a little longer. Too bad WB can't get it out the door a little quicker. Is perhaps Steven holding it up?[​IMG]

    Can't wait. Hold on to your LD...the 16x9 double-sided DVD is HORRIBLE...so much EE and MPEG artifacting that some images (like the opening credits) look like a double exposure! It has that aweful "digital grain" that many early Warner titles (rob roy) have.

    DTS DTS DTS PLEASE Warner...at least give us 448 kbps DD!!!

    Any news on this yet? I haven't heard anything new, and am still awaiting this SE.

    It's the first DVD I bought, and I'm dying to see the SE!

    According to various sources, the SE will have involvment by the cast and crew. Even better, it'll have a new high-def mastered anamorphic transfer.

    Pacific Title is doing the remastering, so expect a transfer as good as the one for Amadeus: DC.
