    There's a German R2 anamorphic disc of this, but it's reportedly atrocious quality and not in the correct aspect ratio (cropped to 16:9).
    Is it Fox who still owns this title? Please, I beg of you, this has a tremendous cult following. It's one of Walter Hill's very finest and it's just damn fun!
    You did a bang-up job on Say Anything, so please turn your attentions to this.
    And I couldn't help but notice this from the IMDB about an extended version and a removed prologue:

    Yeah, this needs to be released pronto. If anyone has ever played The Driver videogame, it was highly influenced by this film, especially the part in the parking garage.

    Walter Hill's excellent noir happens to be playing on Fox Movies in a cropped print right now. Let's see Fox get it right on DVD--with Mr. Hill's participation.
