Had an interesting question from Peter about when we are going to have an “enhanced” Dvd … well you can help by writing the head of home entertainment for MGM-UA, Eric Lomis. Here is his email address:
Release of a Remastered Version of the Movie on DVD??
This is my first post here…
The Black Stallion (1979) is one of my all time favorite movies! I can’t begin to count how many time I have watched it. But each time I do, I have a nagging feeling that the print used to make the DVD had experienced some fading of the colors due to age. I read on Wikipedia that the movie was selected in 2002 by the Library of Congress to be preserved. Has anyone read or heard of the possibility that there may be a re-mastered version of the film seeing a re-release on DVD?? The photography of this film is just unbelievable and I would love to see it in all its original glory as I did at its release in 1979.
Cheers – Peter
You can help! We need to have as many people write to MGM as possible and see if we can get them to re master an “enhanced” Blu-Ray DVD.
They did it with the “Godfathers” and the “Outsiders” why not “Black Stallion”?
The costs have come down a lot in the last few years on this process … maybe they just need a little push.
