To whom it may concern, We the undersigned feel that the film "Angus" (1995) merits the proper care and attention that many other fine films enjoy today. This film, among other things: --Introduced the world to the talents of two great young actors, James Van der Beek and Charlie Talbert. --Exposed the emotionally difficult aspects of going through high school, bullies, and crushes, through the eyes of the overweight and confused Angus Bethune, who confronted these matters with courage, honesty, and wit. --Dealt with themes of rejection, alienation, the awakening of youth to social ideology, and the conquest of fear and oppression through self-worth. --Showcased the luscious autumn photography of Alexander Gruszynski. --Featured Academy Award winners Kathy Bates and Rita Moreno, as well as George C. Scott in one of his final film roles. --Made a strong emotional impact on those whose youth resembled that of Angus, gave us confidence and pride in our unique talents and conviction that such a positive film can do the same for others. Therefore, we the undersigned strongly petition for the release of "Angus" on DVD, which should include (but not limit itself to): --A director's cut of the film, presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1. A fullscreen version of the film would be unacceptable. --Deleted scenes and bloopers. --Audio or separate video commentary about the making of the film and its impact on the makers, actors, and viewers. It should include interviews and commentaries by the director, Patrick Read Johnson, the writer, Jill Gordon, the producer, Charles Roven, the writer of the original short story, Chris Crutcher, film reviewer Roger Ebert, and the four young leads, Chris Owen, Ariana Richards, Charlie Talbert, and James Van der Beek. --Music videos, trailers, T.V. spots, and other promotional material. Thank you!
