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.

    A wonderful opera tells a story by great actors.

    This title is long overdue. As much as I do love "My Fair Lady" and "Oklahoma", the music for "Porgy and Bess" is still unbeatable and deserves at least the same consideration. And Andre Previn had the good taste and sensibility to lovingly supervise how the music should be adapted for the big screen, like he did with "My Fair Lady". There have been rumors that the Gershwin estate didn't like, or approve of the final film --- but they didn't seem to mind the latest Broadway trashing of the material.
