The latest issue of NEWSWEEK 7/5/04 has an interesrting article on Warren Lieberfarb and the history and future of the DVD. In it is the statement " The prospect of issuing old films anew on DVD is behind Sony's current eargerness to sink perhaps $5 billion into buying MGM, with its trove of classics like "The Wizard od OZ". I had thought the it and other early MGM films were now owned by Turner which is now part of Time-Warner. Am I wrong or does NEWSWEEK have the wrong info? I know that MGM has the rights to the MGM films of the 80's and 90's along with much of the UA catalog, but just what films does MGM actually own?
