    Thanks to the success of star Diane Lane in "Unfaithful", I've been informed that Warner are doing a Special Edition as we speak to be released in 2003!

    These words were from Warner themselves, but remember things can change, but hopefully we'll see "A Little Romance" next year.

    You find that when someone becomes a big star alot of their "untapped" catalog stuff starts to appear.

    Hmm, I wonder if we can convince Warner that Katharine Hepburn is a star?

    I would have said Katherine Hepburn IS a star, even if she isn't current. I would still call her a star.

    Why? What is the connection with this "A Little Romance" thread?

    Trevor, I think the "joke" was that there are still a few Hepburn films conspicuously missing on DVD.

    My wife and I just watched part of our old VHS tonight. Absolutely can't wait to see it in WIDESCREEN! Awesome news. Strange that the popularity of Diane Lane is getting this released on DVD instead of Sir Larry.

    A George Roy Hill and Diane Lane commentary would be great. It would be interesting to hear what Diane Lane felt like working on her debut film with Hill and Sir Olivier. It would be quite a "unique" commentary I think. Warner, please make it so.

    Warner Bros are releasing "A LITTLE ROMANCE" starring Diane Lane (Unfaithful,
    Perfect Storm) and Sir Laurance Olivier (Sleuth, Marathon Man) on DVD.
    It's coming on January 7th, 2003!!!!!!

    This award winning 1979 film has appeared on many peoples top romantic movies of all time. It was a big boxoffice hit in 1979 and won several awards including some Academy Awards. The film is also notable as the big screen debut of 12 year-old Diane Lane recently seen in "Unfaithful", "Hardball" and "The Perfect Storm".

    According to Warner they were hopeful of getting Ms Lane and director George Roy Hill (The Sting, Butch Cassidy...) involved in the DVD, but both were busy filming and declined.

    The DVD will be anamorphic widescreen, Dolby Digtal 2.0 stereo, with trailers and maybe filmographies for the director and stars.

    [​IMG] I'm glad to see it so soon! At least WB didn't announce that there would be commentaries only to recant later. It would have been nice to have had them, but getting the movie in WS is more important.

    very odd, but less than 3 weeks away and neither Amazon, nor DDD has a listing for this.

    i hope this doesn't mean what i think it means...

    definitely one of the 5 titles i'm looking most forward to in '03

    I finally received my copy of "A Little Romance" today from DVD Empire. I watched it and was pleased with the production values of the DVD. The film is still everything I remembered it to be. I thoroughly enjoyed watching it again, especially in WS!
