Fox Musicals---> August 19th!

First time releases for:

All That Jazz
Hello, Dolly!
The Rose
Simon & Garfunkel: Concert In Central Park
Star!


Looks like a re-issue for The Commitments, but looks like we still don't get a widescreen version! Drat!

WOW! Simon & Garfunkel and The Commitments are must-buys for me--I've been temped by the ebay prices for The Commitments lately, so this rerelease will save me about $140.

Are the first-time releases all OAR?

P.S. - All That Jazz - Fox marketing must have worked overtime to realize they could ride on the coattails of Chicago</i< which comes out the same time.

Thanks for the great news, Mao!

According to DVDFile, each of them will have a $14.95 SRP.
But All That Jazz is the only one they list specs for:
Last but not least is a lineup of modern musical classics sure to make fans trip the light fantastic. August 19th will see the long-awaited DVD release of Bob Fosse's All That Jazz, which features a remastered 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer and an English 2.0 Dolby surround track, plus a screen-specific audio commentary by Roy Scheider, additional new interviews, a film clip montage and the theatrical trailer. Retail is a mere $14.95. Also included in this musical promotion are first-ever DVD releases of The Rose, Hello Dolly, Star!, a new reissue of The Commitments and Simon & Garfunkel Concert in Central Park. All are newly remastered and retail for a cheap $14.95. Watch this space for more...

I find it hard to believe that fox would re-release "The Committments" in P&S only, but I guess we will see.

Finally! As the song says...."It's so nice to have you back where you belong"! In addition to "Hello, Dolly!", come August 19th, I'll be getting "All That Jazz", "The Rose", and Julie Andrews as the "Star!".

Gabe666,

Problem is it's got the same old catalog number...when a new version comes out, the old number is retired! I'd love a widescreen version, as well!

I don't know about the catalog number, but the DVDFile blurb says "newly remastered," which to me means that a different transfer is on this disc.

We'll see.

I'm interested in Hello Dolly, but I'm not sure a thumbs up is in order yet. At that low MSRP I can't imagine this is going to be anything but barebones. Hopefully the picture and sound will be good at a minimum.

The specs for the R1 "All That Jazz" are the same as the R2 version that I've owned since August 2002.

ATJ is great great great. If you like Fosse, or Roy Scheider, or great dance pieces, you should love it. It's also a great musical for those that chafe at the idea of people bursting into song at any given moment. The musical numbers are integrated seamlessly into the pseudo-autobiography.

I love All That Jazz. It may be my favorite musical.

Actually, I don't even really think of it as a musical (although it clearly is), I think because of how well the singing and dancing are integrated into the movie.

I've had an R2 version (Benelux) also for almost a year. I probably won't get the U.S. version, cheap as it is, because they haven't upgraded it for R1. Why they don't do a new 5.1 or 5.0 mix for this great musical movie is beyond me.
