It has been years since I signed up for a notifiction when this version comes out on DVD. I can't believe I am still waiting!!!!! Please Hurry!! I have worn out my VHS tape and am afraid my lazer disc player will crash, making my lazer disc useless!!
Same as above....I recorded a vhs version; the sound was awful and I tossed it, never suspecting that it was irreplaceable! There is a dvd of the Broadway play, but it is sooo hard to see or hear anything. Bring out the film, please!
Please, please, please, please, please, please, release the "Pirates of Penzance" MOVIE version on DVD!!! It stars Kevin Kline, Linda Ronstadt, Rex Smith, and Angela Lansbury. The play version isn't as nice and we all would rather have the movie version, as it is tons better! Thank you.
GREAT NEWS. I have a family member in the industry and learned today that Pirates of Penzance (yes,the movie) will be released by Universal on DVD September 14, 2010. The picture and sound have been completely remastered for quality. No word yet on a possible Blu-ray, expect a formal announcement soon!!!!!!!!!!! Oh happy day we joyous thee!!!!!!!!!!!
Might I suggest for Blu-ray fans like myself that you go to Universalstudios.com, on the bottom of the page is "contact us", then select "home video dvd and Blu-ray" and fill out the form, requesting the title to come out on Blu-ray as well as DVD. Maybe if we all work together they will consider it.
Silvermoon, you're probably right on all of those, unless Universal went out of it's way (which it does not usually do) and mixed the movie for Dolby Digital 5.1. it's always possible, but I believe this was Dolby surround in theaters.
Up for pre-order here on Amazon:-) I want a Blu-ray but since I waited so many years for the DVD, I will settle for that and enjoy it very much. Finally a widescreen version!!!!!! No more watching 1/3 of the musical numbers we can see the rest of the picture (of which almost 2/3 was cut off the sides for VHS, laserdisc and all television broadcasts).
