The Winds of War will be out on DVD later this year from Paramount
This is a quote from Dan Curtis taken from a
Question & Answer session posted at the MPI Home Video site. Now that both parts of "War and Remembrance" are available it is fabulous news that "Winds of War" will appear. As a precaution, I won't go disposing of my VHS tapes until this set is in my hot little hands! :D :D :D

I sure hope so. I've bought both of the War & Remembrance dvd box sets, but am not going to watch them until after I have Winds of War so I can do it right.

Great news, I've lived with the VHS full frame tapes for many years.

Since it was a made for television miniseries, 1.33:1 is the OAR and there's no point in anamorphic.

At the end of the behind the scenes documentary on the extras disc of "War and Remembrance" Final Chapter, is a promo for the "Winds of War" DVD set. That's at least two sources. Now if Mr. Blythe would be very kind & generous, we might know for sure.

The April press release schedule I received had it listed as 'coming in May' with a list of other titles.

One of my all time favorite productions, too (and I don't watch much TV)

Robert Mitchum rules

I hope the local B&M stores are going to carry this....I'm taking a chance by not pre-ordering.

One of my local Best Buy stores carries the 2 "War and Remembrance" boxes so I figure they will carry Winds.

Is this set the entire series or just half, like War and Rememberance? I didn't see any description at Amazon.com.

Wow. To each their own, I guess. Seeing the series in the slim cases was a pleasant surprise to me when I opened my set.

Now what I hate are those oversized (& overpriced) boxes that MPI released "War & Rememberance" in. Still holding out for a more reasonably priced & packaged reissue.

I Love those Big Fat Alpha type keepcases!!!! I may be the only one on several Discussion Boards who says he likes them, but I continue to see that InetDVD is selling them, so someone is buying them other than me! :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

I agree that "War and Remembrance" was overpriced!

I vote for the slim cases. It's so nice to have the entire Winds of War in a durable and compact collection that takes up less space than 1/2 of the War & Remberance dvds.

I started watching "Winds of War" yesterday. The first DVD looked somewhat grainy in spots & seemed to not look 100% clean. But the quality is at an acceptable level for me. I enjoyed the featurettes.

I just had to exchange my set at Target since disc 2 had a manufacturing defect that prevented it from playing. Sure am glad I saved the receipt.

Watched disc 1 the other night; DAMN, this is a fine series!
