    Eric Braeden was first known as Hans Gudegast...the german dude on The 60's show "The Rat Patrol"! I loved that show!

    Colossus is a good movie. I've only seen it on cable. It was available for rent on 16mm up until the late eighties. Videotapes and DVD's seem to have put the 16mm rental places like twyman films out of business.:cry:

    For fans of classic MGM animation, there is a bit of a tease on the recent DVD release of "High Society". They included the Tex Avery cinemascope cartoon "Millionaire Droopy" in non-anamorphic letterbox widescreen as a supplement. The dirty little secret of this film is that it was really not directed by Avery per se. It is a remake of Avery's 1949 cartoon "Wags to Riches" where they took Avery's original art and recomposed the images for a cinemascope frame with new backgrounds.

    Yankee Doodle Dandy is on there, and it sounded like they were looking at more Cagney stuff, too, although they didn't mention titles. I'm personally pretty excited about "One, Two, Three" coming from MGM. It was Cagney's last great lead performance and is one of the two great cold-war comedies. (The other is "Dr. Strangelove". "Ninotchka" would qualify except that it pre-dates the actual cold war. ;))

    Errol Flynn is also finally being released from WB vault captivity. :)

    COLOSSUS: THE FORBIN PROJECT was issued on LD in the early 90's. it was released as a two-disc set, double-featured with another movie; i think SILENT RUNNING.

    i'd love to see two of my favorite films issued on DVD:

    in cold blood

    the boston strangler

    some time ago, i e-mailed jon mulvaney (sic) @ criterion collection re: issuing these films. the reply was something along the lines of "we're working on it, but don't hold your breath."

    later, chris
