Allan Dwan boxset released in France


Recommended Posts

One of the most under-appreciated of American movie directors, Alan Dwan is finally getting some long overdue recognition.... in France:


Sony Pictures is releasing, through its French subsidiary, the Allan Dwan Boxset, which includes: *Silver Lode* (1954), *Passion* (1954), *Cattle Queen of Montana* (1954) , *Escape to Burma* (1955), *Pearl of the South Pacific* (1955), *Tennessee's Partner* (1955), *Slightly Scarlet* (1956)




No word yet on whether Sony intends to release this in the U.S., or even if it owns the rights to all of these films in the U.S.

I'd be very surprised if this set were released in the U.S. As we both know there are many American films released on DVD in Europe and other parts of the world that never see the light of day in this country. While a lot of us on these boards know Allan Dwan and those titles, I'll bet that Sony will think it's a little too obscure for the American market (meaning they can't make enough money on it) and will pass. If the films were owned by Warner, I'd say there might be a chance, but Sony I doubt it. I could be wrong, and I hope I am, but I've seen it happen many times before.
