Warner Brothers, please consider revisiting "The Man Who Would Be King". It would be nice if it was pressed as a DVD-9 so that it wouldn't have to be flipped over as is the case right now. It is an excellent film and you did a nice job on it. I hope you will revisit it and press it on one side, plus maybe get Sean Connery and Michael Caine to do a commentary about it since the director, John Huston, has passed away.

I agree. I've been holding off buying not only THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING, but also THE WILD BUNCH and GOODFELLAS, until dual-layer editions of these three great films are finally made available. Bonus material would be most welcome for each, but I'd buy these even if they were just bare-bones non-flippers.

I would welcome the opportunity to replace my current version of this film with a better one. If the video was better and there was no flipping involved, you'd have a sale.
(Same goes with the aforementioned Goodfellas and Wild Bunch)

What kills me is the inconsistency - Warner Bros. manages to get both a full screen and a widescreen version of ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN (138 minutes) on a single disc, yet can't find a way to put the entire MAN WHO WOULD BE KING on side one (129 minutes) and the supplementary material on side two.
