    Did I miss something? Amazon & DVD Empire both have Young Frankenstein as not available. I know they just put out the MB set but I assumed YF would still be available on it's own. Anyone?

    Thanks for the info; I was wondering what had happened to Frank. Ah, sweet mystery of life at last I've found you (on September 5th).

    That's awesome news, Dave. I'm glad some classics (read: anything not Star Wars) are getting the treatment they deserve.

    I have the non-anamorphic but will gladly double-dip on this one.

    Great news. The anamorphic/non-anamorphic YF fiasco and the old version of Blazing Saddles put me off of the Mel Brooks Box set so it's great to hear it's coming separate

    That's great news. I'd love to replace my old non-anamorphic DVD. BTW, just saw this on TV the other day...still a classic!

    Nowhere on that Amazon listing does it list "enhanced for 16:9." In fact, this release appears identical to the earlier release (which I've had for well over five years). Hopefully it's a mistake on Amazon's part...

    If not, no sale for me. That just seems so ridiculous to put out the same non-anamorphic title.

    It's so hard to watch my VHS of this. But I've waited and waited for a anamorphic version. Great news!

    Comments on amazon.com say the MB films in that set are not anamorphic?! YF is the older version...Blazin Saddles is the old (not 30th ann) version. Crap...I was going to buy that thing. Although other comments indicate these were "shot in full frame". Da! [​IMG] Also, no Space Balls at all (not even old one I already have).

    Anyway, I'll only buy anamorphic for all of these. I guess individually for me. I'm also tired of my VHS of HotWP1. I need, need, need that one! "Our Lord Jahova has given upto you these 15..." (crash! break!) "10! 10 commandments for you all to obey!!"

    There definitely IS a new anamprphic version floating out there as many people who bought the box set got it. See here...
    http://hometheaterforum.com/htf/show...ght=mel+brooks I doubt they would just sneak the old version in again. People called them on their screwup with the set.
    Also, Amazon's specs are often very inaccurate.

    [​IMG] Just wait to see it in a store and check.

    Oh, I see. I almost always buy from DDD. They only list as "widescreen". I'd never ask them what's in the set. Those guys are retarded. [​IMG]

    I think I'll just buy each separate to make sure I'm getting the best.

    Yep. Individually is the way to go IMHO as a big percentage, maybe 1/3 to a 1/2 who bought the box got the old YF discs mixed in (supposedly) by mistake.

    I looked all over for this and couldnt find it. Best Buy couldnt find a new release in the computer. Only thing i found was Men in Tights. Guess i will have to go the Amazon route.

    I'd guess that it's because Robin Hood is available by itself for the first time and Young Frankenstein has been released before.
