    That is great news. I am so glad they are going back to these important films and restoring them.

    DVD's just blow my mind. Who'da thunk that cinema would be so accessible to the masses?

    I wonder what the odds are that we'll ever see anything on DVD like The Al Jolson Collection that MGM did on LD. Pretty slim, I'd imagine. [​IMG]

    If you want full-on restorations, and not the crappy prints that MGM/UA used, I'd say they are pretty slim. (But that's not bad. Do you REALLY want WB dumping all the old MGM/UA LD transfers to DVD? I don't...)

    Good news. I don't find The Jazz Singer overrated or dull at all. A moving story and an interesting treatment of Judaism.
