I'd be stunned if it did, I don't think Buena Vista ever released the DVD in the US. It would be a addition to my library though.

This is actually a really outstanding little flick (if you like it, I'd also recommend Dust Devil) that has had quite a tumultuous history. It was scheduled for a release in the US on at least three occasions. Never happened. In fact, to my knowledge, the only official release on DVD was a very poor Japanese disc in 1:78:1 with awful grain and a stereo soundtrack.

If this actually makes it to Blu, I would suspect an EU release only, since it seems to have a bit of a following there. Here's hoping it's region free, though.

That's an Optimum/MGM release, so it really has no bearing as to whether it releases in the US or not since Buena Vista owns the rights in the States.

Since it's an Optimum Blu-ray, I'll go aheand and say it'll be Region B locked.

OMFG!

I've waited forever for a decent release of this film! There has only been a dodgy german dvd release of this film, and that release used the laserdisc as master (the laserdisc release would probably be the best release of it so far).

Happy happy joy joy!
