I'm wondering the same thing...is this movie, not counting low-quality imports and bootlegs, FINALLY for sale on an authorized DVD release? Amazon lists the studio as Paramount, so I'm hoping. I'm going to search and post here what I find.
yes, out 23 march as follows: DVD: Full screen format with English, French and Spanish Mono and English, French and Spanish subtitles. Blu-ray Disc: - 1080p High Definition with English, French and Spanish Mono and English, English SDH, French, Spanish and Portuguese subtitles.
Special features are as follows: ■Embracing Chaos: Making The African Queen-This comprehensive documentary takes a look back at the production with commentary about the cast, the challenges of the filming locations and how the spectacular cinematography impacted the industry overall. Includes on-camera interviews with notable Hollywood icons, critics and crew members from the film including Martin Scorsese, Tony Huston, Richard Schickel and more, plus never-before-seen archival images and home movie footage provided by the estate of cinematographer Jack Cardiff.
The Commemorative, Limited-Edition DVD and Blu-ray box sets include the above along with: ■An audio disc with a recording of the Lux Radio Theater presents The African Queen radio broadcast ■A Senitype® film frame collectible reproduction ■Collectible postcards featuring reproductions of images related to the film ■A reproduction of Katharine Hepburn's out-of-print memoir The Making of The African Queen or How I Went to Africa with Bogart, Bacall and Huston and Almost Lost My Mind
But today's list price is not one of the 4 announced by Paramount. $25.99 matches neither edition of DVD or BD. Is this the Commemorative edition or the Standard? Come ON Amazon, get it right. You messed up on first few days with Alice in Wonderland and on Have Gun Will Travel season 4. But this time I won't profit from your error.
