    Thanks to Bill Hunt at The Digital Bits Rumor Mill, The Producers (Special Edition) is finally coming to DVD - I guess I'll have to retire my Criterion LD (no PCM audio!)

    Too early to tell what the specs are going to be - I'm sure Bill & co. will know more soon enough! A commentary from Mel Brooks, Gene Wilder, Dick Shawn and Kenneth Mars would be ideal (Christopher Hewett passed away last year).

    Criterion only had a theatrical trailer as bonus material when they created their laserdisc.

    The film was shot full frame and matted theatrically for 1.85:1 so we can probably expect another anamorphic transfer from MGM.

    Dick Shawn passed away quite some time ago.

    Anyway, I can't wait for this disc to come out. I'm gonna be rich! Max Bialystock sold me 100% of the DVD distribution profits!

    :b

    hmm...I started the thread after trying a search - nothing came up!

    Note to the Mods - a merge, maybe?

    I will get this fantastic film to be sure, but I also would like a DVD of the original cast Broadway musical.

    "Shut up! I'm having a rhetorical conversation with myself!"

    "I fell on my keys."

    "I'm sorry I caught you with the old lady."

    "Come in, Mr. Tact."

    "I have to - I'm the landlord."

    "He's wearing a dress."

    I can't wait for this one - thanks in advance, MGM!
