Good RICHARD DREYFUSS movies not out yet on DVD

I find this odd, considering his popularity and clout in Hollywood, past and present. You got what I call the "Richard Dreyfuss Standards" out on DVD - Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, The Goodbye Girl, Down & Out In Beverly Hills, Mr. Holland's Opus...

...but what about the gems from the late 70's and early 80's? The following movies, surprisingly, are not out yet on DVD:

The Big Fix
The Competition
Who's Life Is It Anyway?
The Buddy System


Any word on these?

WHOS LIFE IS IT ANYWAY features to me, Dreyfuss's at his best, funny and powerful and tragic.

Count me in as a fan of The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz and Inserts. More Dreyfuss-I agree!

Dreyfuss himself panned The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, saying he was surprised to be cast for Jaws based on his awful work in that film. Goes to show.

Is Moon Over Parador out? The one where he doubles as a recently deceased Central American leader.

Universal released it back in August 2004; it's a bare-bones OAR release that you should be able to find for ~$10.

There "IS" (was ?) a version of The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz that came out on DVD (which I bought.) It was released by Alliance Atlantis out of Canada in 2001. The aspect ratio is full frame, however.

Can we even really count "Krippendorf's Tribe" though? The disc is out but mis-labeled as WS when it's in fact FS.

I would definately be in for The Competition. Nice cast and great music.

Man, can you imagine the inflated ego Dreyfuss must have had between the years 1975 and 1977? In 1975, he starred in Jaws, then went on to star in Close Encounters of the Third Kind - and then he goes and wins an Oscar in 1977 for The Goodbye Girl!

Dreyfuss is a great and unique actor - and he will definitely be remembered long after his passing.

I stand corrected. Amazon lists INSERTS with a release date of August 23rd. Joy!

I liked him in: The Goodbye Girl, with Marsha Mason, the reason be, that my mother, and I watched it together many years ago, and it had remained one of her favorite movies.
And to this present day, whenever I watch this movie alone, I get emotional due to the fact that my mother passed away three years ago, and this particular movie will always be sentimental. Generally, I do not prefer romantic comedies, with the exception of: The Goodbye Girl, which remind me of quality time that we spend together, and this movie will be forevermore special to me.
