Cloak & Dagger (1984) finally coming to DVD!

From DVDAnswers:
Universal has set an official date for the first time releases of Cloak & Dagger, Colossus: The Forbin Project, Commandments, The Cure, Little Miss Marker (1980), Missing, Private School, Splitting Heirs and Sweet Liberty. Each of the titles will form part of Universal's November 2004 Studio Selections, and each of them will be available to own from the 23rd November this year. The retail prices should be set at around $9.99 a piece. I'm afraid we have no further details on these titles yet, although it's safe to say that these will mostly be barebones releases. We'll bring you the official artwork very shortly. Stay tuned.
I've been wanting Cloak & Dagger on DVD for years.

Thanks for the heads up!

Am I looking forward to Cloak & Dagger?

Does the Atari 5200 hooked up to my TV give you a clue?

I watched this over and over as a kid and loved it, but fear watching it now will date it too heavily.

I will avoid this one.

I loved this movie as a kid, and have forgotten about it for awhile. Dabney Coleman is great in this film as Jack Flack. If it retails at 9.99 then it probably will be 7.99 at DDD. I will splurge and get this movie on dvd.

HAHAHA, that's great! I was just playing River Raid on my 2600 emulator last week. And I swear it must've been only two weeks ago when a friend of mine mentioned C&D, so we looked it up, finding out it was unavailable. I can't remember the last time I saw that movie, but it probably hasn't been since the 80's, can't remember if it was a rental or on TV.

I'll be looking forward to this, adding to my wish list.

This is great. My sister and I used to watch this constantly when we were kids. I might even send her a copy.

Looking forward to Cloak & Dagger. Liked it a great deal as a younger person.

I've been surprised at how well some movies from my youth have held up in entertainment value. Hopefully that remains the same with Cloak & Dagger.
