    I was watching this the other day, and remembered what a great movie it is. Why on earth hasn't Columbia released it on DVD yet?

    Not to be confused with MGM's "Lambada" which was released a month or two ago.

    This movie stars Laura Herring & Jeff James. Great music, great dancing and all around great movie!

    Uh, OK, um, yeah [​IMG]

    It would have been amausing if they released it the same day as the WB LAMBADA DVD, since there was a big to-do about both films opening in theaters the same day... and bombing!

    Which one did "The Forbidden Dance"? Golan or Globus?

    Golan (through 21st Century, his post-Cannon company). Globus did "Lambada."

    Supreme irony: MGM now owns THE FORBIDDEN DANCE as well as LAMBADA!

    Provided the lovely Laura Elena Harring does another high profile film, and some distance is established from LAMBADA: THE MOVIE, I'm sure there will be a DVD.

    If only Greydon Clark could do a commentary about how fast he had to make the film.

    OMG! I can't believe I got my wish! Columbia is *FINALLY* releasing this film with an ANAMORPHIC TRANSFER on 9/30! I wonder if my thread had anything to do with it? Maybe they found that someone WOULD actually buy it [​IMG]

    MY PRAYERS HAVE BEEN ANSWERED! THANK YOU COLUMBIA, YOU'RE THE BEST!
