Young Frankenstein coming on 10/07/08

This one i'm most excited about besides the price, msrp is still $39.98 but i might get sucked into preordering this. From my distributor.

Carrie shower scene in full-frame would be a nice bonus feature.

Excellent, I'm in! Blazing Saddles/Young Frankenstein HD double feature! Give me The Producers & The Twelve Chairs next, and I'm done!

Young Frank! I've passed up on the DVD many times at extremely low prices and now my patience will pay off.

I'll look forward to the specs and features.

I would love to get History of the World Pt. 1 and Spaceballs as well.

I like me some Carrie and Young Frankenstein.

I don't like me some Fox MSRP.

I'll take all 3. Hopefully Sony releases the Amityville Horror remake on the same day.

Carrie needs to be seriously remastered. The DVDs have been absolutely horrible.

I'd seriously like to know what justification Fox is using for their extremely high MSRPs on catalog titles when EVERY OTHER studio comes in ten bucks cheaper.

Odd. I thought Young Frankenstein was a FOX property... they handled the DVD releases, not MGM.

I'm definitely getting Carrie and Amityville Horror. Will probably blind buy Young Frankenstein because I've heard good things and I like Gene Wilder.

I'd say this is a mistake, it IS a Fox film.

Can we expect more lackluster transfers?

Here's hoping they won't be, but since it's Fox...
