Does anyone have any idea if or when Universal Home Entertainment will get around to releasing the science fiction classic movie THIS ISLAND EARTH on Blu-Ray ???
There was talk about this back in 2005 for its 50th Anniversary, but that came and went without it happening. A special edition DVD-Blu-Ray was discussed then, with special features, but as I recall, Universal was being sold from one parent company to another, and any plans they had then were put on hold or scrapped.
As we saw, there was a bargain-level DVD release in 2006, which did not even use the original ads or movie posters, and it came off looking like a B-movie release, which irked a lot of the fans, due to its association with that silly MST3K movie of 1996.
Another classic Universal film of the 1950s I would love to see on DVD & Blu-Ray is the first historical epic made by Universal, SIGN OF THE PAGAN (1954) in CinemaScope wide-screen format.
