I keep up with the news on this site, hoping to catch a glimpse of future Orson releases. Aside from the now $80.00 (Amazon) price tag on the Image (milestone) version of The Trial, does anyone see this coming out in the near future in a region 1 or All Region format (French-Studio Canal like quality)?
Since Studio Canal is listed with Universal overseas, are we in the US forced with the awful Focus Films(despite their claims to the contrary) "Restored" version of The Trial, not to mention The Stranger.
The same would go for The Magnificent Ambersons. Since Warner owns the rights, I'm wondering if they are ever going to come out with this on DVD.
This would especially apply to The Trial, to which I have to suffer through my Laserlight Version. Anyone know anything? Heard any rumors, chat room/forum stuff? I presume it would probably be in the news here, if known.
By the way, I just purchased the Korean import of Othello, which seems to basically be a bootleg of the Image Entertainment version, same special features and all.
Chimes of Midnight is another I would like to see on a Region 1 or all region DVD. Apparently the recent Brazilian import of this movie seems to be a cut version, at least according to their minutes.
