    I've been able to find out through contacts here in Hollywood about a few DVDs that are close to being completed. Forgive me if some of these have been announced. This is just some info I ran across.

    The Right Stuff: Special Edition (16X9, full-length version)

    Giant (not sure if this is anamorphic or not -- the aspect ratio is listed as 1.66, but it says nothing about anamorphic)

    Chisum (some John Wayne movie)
    Cahill (another John Wayne movie)
    Foxes (the old Jodie Foster movie)
    Courtship of Eddie's Father (the original movie -- 16x9)
    The Love Bug (I think that's been announced, but I can verify it's 16X9)
    Gay Purree (16X9)
    The Joy Luck Club (16X9)
    Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (2.35, 16X9)
    One, Two, Three (1961, 16X9)
    Kiss Me, Stupid (1964, 16X9)
    Avanti (16X9)
    The Four Feathers (2002, 16x9)

    There MAY be a Rocky & Bullwinkle boxed set in the works, but I'm not sure.

    I have reason to believe there could be a MAD TV Season One boxed set coming, but again, I can't be sure.

    Giant we knew about, and Right Stuff we suspected (glad to have confirmation...great timing after the Columbia disaster to refresh our memories about what heroes the astronauts all are!).

    Love Bug, Courtship, and Joy Luck were all announced, too. Foxes may have been, I'm not sure...but it will be welcome news!

    Rocky & Bullwinkle and Mad TV are good news for TVShowsOnDVD, when and if they can be thoroughly verified. We don't do a "rumor mill" column there, though...so we'll wait until it's official.

    The two John Wayne films are great surprises, and very welcome news! But my favorite item you have listed there is the Jack Lemmon classic, Avanti! Boy, I've always loved that film...it will be great to finally see it in widescreen!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]


    Thanks for the welcome news, Brian. Did you ever see an e-mail I sent you, asking you about something else? If "no", say here and I will re-send.

    Well, it was rumored Giant was being restored by LDI...I don't know why they'd spend the huge amount of money to get it LDI-ized without anamorphic enhancing. Perhaps WHV can finally venture into 1.66:1 anamorphic.

    Quantum Leap is from Universal, and none of the 8 television series they've announced for 2003 have been given dates yet. The most we've heard about any of them is that Galactica *might* be targeted for Sept., but nothing's confirmed. Uni is keeping further info close to the chest. I expect we should start hearing about these any day now, to get them spread out around the year. Unless something's changed. Which is possible, given slower-than-expected sales of Baretta and Law & Order.

    Golden Girls was never "announced" by the studio (Buena Vista). It, along with Home Improvement, were mentioned as possibilities "earmarked for 2003" in an article from Video Store Magazine, which you can read at this Golden Girls fansite. Since we now know that HI is coming, at least in a "Best-of", then perhaps some form of GG is, too. But HI's news was broken by a producer of the show mentioning that he'd done work for the DVD's supplements. Noone has stepped forward to say if GG's in-the-works for sure. In fact, the only new "primetime" TV-to-DVD product I can think of right now that's announced from Buena Vista is Felicity Season 2, and actually that Amazon listing I just linked to is the only "announcement"; it's not in BV's press materials database yet!

    The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes is the one I'm really excited about. One of the best Sherlock Holmes films ever. I wonder if the DVD will include the extra material (documentary and dialogue and still scenes from the deleted sequences) which was on the LD.

    The Joy Luck Club might be a repricing.
