Yes!  I remember that 1795 promo appearing on the correct place in the tapes. It's too bad they goofed with the DVDs but this was the period (for the discs) when MPI wasn't apparently doing anything (or much of anything) around quality control in terms of the company authoring the discs--and a lot of bloopers were "cleaned up" and edited out, to the dismay of fans.

Thanks, Darren.  As I am sure I have mentioned multiple times, I own the laserdisc and my VHS tapes of the films are sourced from that.  The friend who made the tapes for me (I have never owned a laserdisc player) was kind enough to include the trailer from each disc. 

Even then WB home video was cheap, lazy, and disrespectful of these films.

Just calling it as I see it.

Golly, Darren, you sure do know how to get an old fan excited!  I'm sitting here salivating over the thought of that 9 second shot from the lost poolhouse sequence.  Of ALL the lost sequences in the two films, I think that is the one I really wish had been salvaged.  The shots from it that we do have are incredible...

It comes as no surprise to read that WB home video missed the boat even with the NoDS trailer.  I presume that the hoDS trailer held no surprises, but, if there are comments to be made, you know I would love to hear them.

Best, Steve

Dear God.  Now THIS is horror.  But thanks again, Darren, for giving us such a beautifully detailed (if excruciating) account of what's been happening with this title.

I know I'm one of the few who feels this way, but etched in my head right now is FDR's voice intoning "2012 ... a date that will live in infamy"--at least insofar as the history of DS is concerned.

My apologies for an off-topic announcement in this thread; I think there are some fans here of the old "The Avengers" TV series from England in the Sixties, the one co-starring Patrick Macnee and Diana Rigg.  I just heard through the grapevine that the "Steed and Mrs. Peel" comic book series has been revived.  There are a couple of 2012 entries on Amazon and one for next May (maybe the latter is meant to be the first few issues collected in graphic novel format).

Just giving the heads-up here for any fans who might be interested.  I had heard nothing about it, but would like to check it. The 1991 redaction, though written by Grant Morrison, had inferior artwork and I couldn't get past that.

How utterly maddening.  But thanks for the eclaircissement, MB.

Hey dom, you could try the local library.  Ask if they can get the discs via Interlibrary Loan (ILL) if the local branch doesn't carry them.  I would bet dollars to doughnuts they could get the films for you.

OK, now THIS is exciting:  the fabulous RJ Jamison, author of the DEFINITIVE biography of Grayson Hall, has reviewed the hoDS/NoDS discs in the new issue of SCREEM magazine!  Yay!

cheers, G.

Holy Hekate, LOOK at those shoulders!  (jaw dropping at Cathy's snapshot of JLM's nude back)  THAT will get you through the straits of doldrum on a Saturday night!

Thanks for the fascinating info, Darren.  I can't make up my mind whether to buy the DVDs or not.  The two snaps posted were not very impressive, but what you say about the color in the hoDS print makes me want to see for myself.

I really lack words to express the distaste I feel for the box cover designs, the same images repeated for those crap menus.

I'll stop now as I can feel a rant coming on.

I doubt this is news, but a friend just rented the movie via Red Box. So, that operation is carrying it.

He mentioned enjoying the art direction, especially the sets, and the fun Burton had with things those of us who lived through the early Seventies recalled from the era.  Julia's clown makeup got a shout-out, too.

Golly, those DVD captures look dark.  Maybe it's the delightful people who work for the home video department punishing anyone who refuses to buy a Blu Ray player. *shrug*

The "cropping" might be a result of the correct screen ratio being restored.  I remember Darren writing in previous posts about pan and scan versions where more of the frame actually showed up than was intended by the director.  I wish I could recall the details, but my short term memory is like a swiss cheese that a rat has had its way with these days...

How cool.  i love the brief scene in hoDS where Stokes visits the deserted mansion and overnight it's become completely desolate again.

Too bad about the staircase.  People just love to destroy fine old things.
