    I'm wondering if anyone received a copy of the film Pinky? It was meant to be released by Fox on I think January 11th. However the place where I ordered it said that its releases was cancelled.

    I'm interested in this info too. This is one of my favorite films.

    See the current thread about the delay of A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN until August. Not to start a rumor but wouldn't it be terrific of Fox to do a Kazan Collection: A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN, BOOMERANG, PINKY, VIVA ZAPATA, MAN ON A TIGHTROPE, WILD RIVER--in addition to the already released GENTLEMEN'S AGREEMENT and the upcoming PANIC IN THE STREETS? Or is Kazan deemed still too provocative?

    I'm thinking the same thing! Last September, while HTF was at Fox Studios during our Meet, I suggested such a collection and was told that it might be a possibility.

    Thanks for the replies. I had A Tree Grows in Brooklyn on order too. That one isn't listed as cancelled, but I guess it will change to that very soon. Rather dissapointing though. I was generating quite a nice Kazan colection.

    The Betty Smith novel was a best seller and a 20th century classic (it was even turned into a Broadway musical) and it was the 1940s equivalent of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. James Dunn won an Oscar for his role as the drunken father. Peggy Ann Garner won an honorary Oscar for the role of Francie.

    The March 2005 edition of PLAYBOY has a review of the dvd. The extra features include a commentary by Richard Schickel, a featurette on Dorothy McGuire, a news clip with Smith. It would certainly be a more credible addition to the Studio Classics line than RETURN TO PEYTON PLACE.
