THIS IS WHAT I SENT MGM:
Since DVDs have been on the market, every place I have ever seen them on sale, I have ALWAYS looked for the 1982 MGM classic "CANNERY ROW" because is one of my all time favorite movies, for all of the reasons enumerated by all the other 49 reviews listed on AMAZON.
I understand that the critics panned it back in the day. That's been known to happen to extremely good movies before, take for example "It's A Wonderful Life" -- which finally turned a profit due to video sales-- DECADES after being a box office bomb.
I never bought CANNERY ROW on VHS, largely because I never saw it for sale on VHS, living in the wilds of Canada. However in the brave new world of the internet and Amazon it is now possible for even those of us who are isolated to acquire the merchandise we truly value.
Having read all the other reviews on AMAZON, the consensus seems to be that virtually all of the people who have posted reviews REALLY loved the movie, and most everyone wants to see CANNERY ROW released on DVD.
It is only today on Amazon that I even discovered that CANNERY ROW was even released on videotape. So for the first time right now I could buy a USED copy of it. But personally, I am rather tired of buying movies on video only to have to buy them again on DVD. So I am no longer buying VHS. I want to buy CANNERY ROW on DVD.
It is obvious that those of us who like this movie REALLY like it-- and we are certain to rush out and purchase the thing the moment it is released. So the question is: WHEN are you releasing it?
