PORGY AND BESS 1959 MOVIE TO DVD/BLURAY

TO ALL WHO LOVED THIS MOVIE NOW AND THEN: IT HAS BEEN OVER 50 YEARS. THERE HAVE BEEN THOSE WHO HATED IT. AND THOSE WHO LOVED IT DEARLY.


WHETHER IT IS A TAINTING OF THE ORIGINAL OPERA, OR A REINVENTION I DO NOT KNOW. AND AFTER 50 YEARS, WHO CARES. ITS HISTORY, ITS HOLLYWOOD, ITS MOVIE MAGIC AT ITS BEST.

I AND THE OTHER PEOPLE WHO HAVE ALSO SIGNED THIS PETITON BELIEVE THAT ART SHOULD SURVIVE, AND PORGY AND BESS IS ART. THIS FILM SHOULD BE RELEASES TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC IN SOME FORM OF REMASTERED OR RESTORED CONDITION FOR HOME VIDEO MEDIA.

  • TOM OLSON WHEN RELEASED IN 1959, IN ALL MAJOR MARKETS IT WAS RELEASED IN 70MM AND 6 TRACK SOUND. ITS A SHAME THAT THOSE PRINTS AND THE MASTER QUALITY SOUND WAS THERE AND NOW GONE. THE FILM ALSO HAD A FABULOUS OVERTURE BEFORE THE CREDITS STARTED AND IS NOW LOST FOREVER. RAINTREE COUNTY IS ANOTHER 70MM FILM LOST.
