    I just had finished watching Paul Mazursky's "Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice" when i stumbled across a feature in the Special Features section of the DVD, namely: "Tales of Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice" which was recorded in September 2003 at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute, where David Strasberg announces that Columbia Tristar is recording this discussion in preparation for 3 DVD releases: Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, The Pickle and The Tempest !!!

    So truthfully a year later, in November 2004 Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice and The Pickle were released but The Tempest is nowhere mentioned anymore.

    I for my part hold it in higher regard than either Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice and The Pickle, so what's the reason it was dropped or delayed ?

    Has anybody any information on this ?

    p.s.: Harry & Tonto is also very dearly missed on DVD, come on Columbia bring on the goods ....

    "Tempest" was playing on DirecTV a few months ago. Sometimes that's a good indication that a DVD release is coming soon. Also, the transfer was pretty good so it's obviously been cleaned up for digital. Keep watching the monthly annoucements... I know I am.

    I would also like to see The Tempest on DVD as well as Harry & Tonto. Since The Tempest is not very well known, I can somewhat understand why it hasn't been released yet, but there's no excuse for Harry & Tonto.

    I'm puzzled as to why so few of Muzursky's early films are on DVD. My most wanted DVD releases are Next Stop Greenwich Village, and An Unmarried Woman. And although it is flawed, I would also like to see Alex in Wonderland.

    I've never seen Willie & Phil or Blume in Love but would at least rent them if they made their way to DVD.

    @ Jay E: I don't know if Columbia Tristar Entertainment owns the rights to all of the titles mentioned by you, but if they do maybe they are planning to release a Paul Mazursky Box Set (with Harry & Tonto as the flagship). Now in the days of DVD Box Sets it wouldn't surprise me, although i have the fear that it is just wishful thinking on my part...
