Duel finally coming out?

Noticed Scarecrow Video has it listed as due out on July 24.

Anyone else heard anything?

I never heard of Scarecrow Video. I will start believing Duel is coming out (again) when I see Amazon and other name retailers advertising it. I missed out like most when a few copies slipped out the first time. Stupid people are paying stupid prices on EBAY. I love this movie but (NO) movie is worth that price to me.

It came out in 1970 right? I posted a thread about this a while back and someone posted a site saying it will be officially released in December iirc.

I bought a copy of this on eBay for $40. It was guaranteed authentic. It wasn't. I paid with PayPal. The person didn't use "Delivery Confirmation." PayPal's bidder protection policy states that if someone cannot prove the package was shipped to you, you get a refund. This person couldn't prove it, and they were not smart enough to go pitch a postcard in the mail with a tracking number.

What did I get? A DVD that has THX and plays great. However, I've compared it with an original and it is not the same cosmetically. I get to enjoy the movie for free at the expense of a bootlegger...

He absolutely did NOT. He paid for an authentic copy and got a bootleg. He asked for his money back and was rebuffed, so he used Paypal to get it back.

He got turned down by seller? Didn't he say he tried the old "I didn't recieve, you can't prove it" trick? Thats what he said,....the seller couldn't prove he recieved it.

Bootleg copy for free? Good deal. Maybe that'll teach the rotten bootlegger. Enjoy your free DVD

I was robbed by being sold a bootlegged DVD marketed as authentic, so I snatched my money back. I wouldn't call that stealing.

Oh, and the seller even left me a positive feedback

But since he did have some sort of loss, I didn't ream him with a negative. I just let it go.

Woohoo, earlier than I thought

"Some new street dates have just come in from Universal Home Video. Look for Steven Spielberg's Duel: Collector's Edition (finally!) and The Sugarland Express on August 17th, a Jesus Christ Superstar: Special Edition on August 31st and Mask: Special Edition (the one with Cher) on September 7th. Stay tuned for disc specs as they are announced. "

from here. thanks basaro!
