They re-released it in cinemas last Friday (details of venues here), so the DVD release is probably some way off.

I guess my taping will do for now. At least i dont have to worry about the AR.

Forgot to mention how good Akira Ifukube's score is, especially during the ending scenes.

I have this and if you can see through the speckles, dirt and scratches yes that's the original Godzilla movie; the U.S. version looks better but it's the original you want and only if you are desperate get this it is pretty bad picture wise.

I know, I know; I'm being ultra-paranoid.
It's just that I'm tempted to order from DVDSOON (dirty word I know) using some of my store credit.

Very interesting piece at The Bits - here - in which Robert Harris 'talks with George Feltenstein, Ned Price & Ronnee Sass of Warner Home Video about the restoration work that went into the long awaited King Kong DVD. The piece features interesting information on the history of the film and the efforts to preserve it, as well as the creation of the DVD and its special features.'

Little mention of The Searchers too...

Very interesting stuff - this has got me even more excited (which I didn't think possible). The restoration stuff goes completely over my head (lavenders, etc. ) but Peter Jackson's re-created spider-pit sequence sounds like a fascinating extra. only a few weeks now ....

• Creation Test Footage with Commentary by Ray Harryhausen
Digitally Obsessed has published a new Warners press release which is essentially the same as the one I posted back on page three and quoted from above, but there are slight differences to the description of the 2-disc SE itself:

DVD Special Features Include:
Disc 1: The Movie
* Original 1933 Film classic in Glorious Black and White, Newly Restored and Digitally Mastered
* Commentary by Ray Harryhausen and Ken Ralston, with Merian C. Cooper and Fay Wray
* Merian C. Cooper Movies Trailer Gallery
* Subtitles: English, French and Spanish (Feature Film Only)

Disc 2: King-Sized Special Features

* I'm King Kong! The Exploits of Merian C. Cooper (2005 Documentary)
* RKO Production 601: The Making of Kong, Eighth Wonder of the World
o The Origins of "King Kong"
o Willis O'Brien and "Creation"
o Cameras Roll on Kong, The Eighth Wonder
o A Milestone in Visual Effects
o Passion, Sound and Fury
o The Mystery of the Lost Spider Pit Sequence
o King Kong's Legacy
* Creation Test Footage with Commentary by Ray Harryhausen


...the differences being the description of the personnel taking part in the commentary (it may be that they've excised some of the archive comments), and added the new documentary I'm King Kong! The Exploits of Merian C. Cooper to disc 2 instead of disc 1. Hardly riveting stuff I know...
