The Magic Sword and Jack the Giant Killer - when will they appear on DVD?

I was given a number of old US monster magazines (including Famous Monsters of Filmland and Monster World ) as a Christmas gift, and one of the films mentioned was Bert I Gordons The Magic Sword known also as St George and the Seven Curses, does anyone out there know if it may become available on the DVD format?

Jack the Giant Killer with Kerwin Matthews was also featured in one of the mags, I did hear a while back that this title was thouight to be in line for a DVD re-release. There was (or maybe still is!) a very poor DVD available, with a dreadful sub VHS transfer! Has anyone out there come across this title in any release pending lists?

"The Magic Sword" is included in the Family Classics 50 Movie Pack that has been talked about in the Bargains forum. I missed the sale but got it for $29.99 at Rite-Aid. Haven't watched any of it yet, so I can't speak to the quality, but given the price, I wouldn't expect DTS.

I have never seen the movie only seen the movie stills in those sixties monster movie mags maybe it is one of those penny dreadful movies I don't know!! If you check it out, and it is any good, I'll have to get next time I'm in the US!

We need both of them badly.

"Jack the Giant Killer" needs to have both versions, regular and the musical...that was a piece of c---!

Just release them in their OAR and we'll all be happy.

I never heard of a musical version of Jack the Giant Killer do you mean two versions of the Kerwin Matthews JTGK were released one with songs and one without?
