    Dear Warner Home Video,
    Please release THE GUMBALL RALLY (1976) to DVD in it's original widescreen ratio. This is by far the best of the cross-country road race films that emerged in the mid 70's to 80's. There are great cars, goofy humour, a likable cast... It's just a really fun movie, a good time, and I've pretty much worn out my pan 'n' scan VHS anyways, so please HTF, show your support for this nutty road comedy which I feel is the best of it's genre. Thanks.
    Johnny B.

    I would buy a copy of The Gumball Rally in OAR.
    I already have:
    • [*]The Cannonball Run[*]The Cannonball Run II[*]Smokey and the Bandit[*]Stroker Ace
    (Okay, so I like Hal Needham/Burt Reynolds collaborations!)
    Anyway, I'd like the original fast-cars-across-the-country film...bring on Gumball!

    Gumball!
    Just to have Raul Julia talking about the virtues of a rear-view mirror would make this disc priceless.
    It also has one of the best final scenes in film, IMO.
    "Gumball."
    God, I love this film.

    Warner released a widescreen laserdisc in 1998, just as laserdiscs were becoming increasingly more difficult to find at local retailers. I never did track it down. So yes, a dvd release would be nice. And remember: What's behind me is not important.

    Yes yes. The original Gumball Rally.
    NOT the Gumball 3000
    NOT the USA: Cannonball
    NOT any of those pretenders.
    The Original. Here's all you need to know...
    2300 miles in 34h:11m.

    Reviving an old thread here,
    a brilliant film,still not on dvd [​IMG]
    Please think about releasing this one ,it does indeed make all the other films of this type look poor in comparison.
