Titles included in the wave are: Bedtime Story, Car Wash, Coal Miner's Daughter, Come September, Duel at Silver Creek, Electric Horseman, 1953's Law and Order (not to be confused with the television series), Night Passage, a new special edition of the Al Pacino and Ellen Barkin thriller Sea of Love, Two Mules for Sister Sara, and double features of Bend Of The River and The Far Country, The Rare Breed and The Redhead From Wyoming, and Destry Rides Again and Winchester '73.

Thanks, Walt. A news item from Yahoo.com was posted down in the Westerns forum recently, giving the release date as May 6.

I've now moved both of these topics up here to the News Forum and merged 'em.

We're talking about a Region One release ... for us in the U.S. and Canada. There's never been one.

Someone else mentioned the Region 2 and Region 4 release down in the Westerns forum. I have no idea why there hasn't been a DVD release in Eastwood's home country, but it's so. There was never a laserdisc release either. Possibly there's some obscure legal reason for this.

The library titles that Universal Home Video will have
just a trailer and maybe some notes.  That's it.
Unless it is noted as a Special Edition.  One reason
that some films never got released on laser.  Is
that film was very low on the list.  The studios release
a lot of new films, but the library list is a longer list.
They look at how well will this title sell.  Ok its a
Clint Eastwood movie, he has a great following
around the world.  But look how long it took Warner
to release the rest of the Dirty Harry movies.  Look
how long Paramount took to release "The Godfather",
"Saturday Night Fever", "Grease". All of those titles
have sold millions of copies.  

It will be great to see "Two Mules for Sister Sara" in
 the 2.39 scope format. Just like when TCM ran. :)

This is not only an Eastwood film, it's an Eastwood Western, a Don Siegel film, a Shirley MacLaine film, and the first color film by the great Mexican cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa (it was as part of a Figueroa retrospective offered by the Film Society of Lincoln Center that I first saw it). I still don't understand why it never got a laserdisc release when such trifles as City Heat were out there ...  ??? I think it's the only Eastwood feature film (with him in a starring role), that never was on laser. And I don't understand why it's been out on DVD in other parts of the world for a couple of years now, but not here.  >:(

But thanks for your input, Briggs. Yup, it will be good to have it in an unbutchered format at last (though TCM showed it in widescreen a couple of months ago).

Just got "Two Mules for Sister Sara" , it looks great.
It only has the original trailer as a bonus.  It has a 2.35 anamorphic transfer and a 2.0 mono soundtrack.   :)

It looks good on the big screen, I projected the DVD
at 7' x 17'. The image held-up.  ;D

Also got "Coal Miner's Daughter" and "Sea of Love".
They were $9.99 each.   ;D

Anybody know which stores in the U.S. have this on the shelf?  Checked several stores and no luck so far.  I know I can get it on-line but I'd like to have it for tonight.

Nothing wrong with shooting as long as the right people get shot.

Have you tried Barnes and Noble?  I did an online search and it says they have it.  You might call them and see.

Best Buy seems to have it as well.

The best bet for you if you want it tonight is to get out the yellow pages and just start calling.

Hope you find it.
