    I e-mailed Criterion concerning this title in November 2002, and Jon Mulvaney replied:

    Dear Mark,

    THE RULES OF THE GAME is a real possibility for 2003. However,
    nothing definite has been determined at this time.

    Best,
    JM

    Rules of the Game is at the top of my list of films which haven't made it to DVD yet. But its pending release has been rumored for so long, I try not to get my hopes up too high . . .

    I understand that, it's been along time coming. I assume it's taking longer because Criterion has been working long and hard to restore the print.

    I emailed Jon Mulvaney 2 or 3 days after I started this post and he said that it was a distint possibility for release by the fall/winter of 2003.
