This is THE big gaping hole in my DVD collection. Luckily, I still have my VHS in case I get desperate.

Oddly, no one seems to know who holds rights to the flick...or at least no one is saying. It's definitely not MGM, which seemed a good a bet, as they've taken over the library of so many a bankrupt '80s production company (original producer: Producer's Sales Organization?!). Anchor Bay has said in chats that they don't know who has rights and I've e-mail Image, requesting that they look into this title, and received back a vague "thanks for the interest in our company" reply.

Glad to see someone else loves this flick as much as I do.

...and Alexandra Paul's glowing ***** hair.

A VHS edition was put out by CBS/FOX, if that provides any kind of roadmap to the rights.

Oliver Stone's lesser-known work has royally gotten the shaft on DVD. (Stone wrote the screenplay for 8 Million Ways to Die.)

I'm still waiting for a DVD of Wild Palms. Bloody 'ell, Anchor Bay put WP out on VHS about three years ago.
