My credit card bill is pretty high this month anyway, but I couldn't resist getting an OOP dvd for 18 bucks from Amazon.
Check it out:



Also, buy it if you can if you don't have it yet.
I don't know why Amazon started carrying it now.

I was thinking the same thing myself
I can't wait to see it finally.
And for 6 bucks, I really couldn't resist.

There are reports that Truffaut's estate and WB have settled their differences and so it's not going to be OOP any longer.

They're re-releasing it and it comes out 9/12/06, and it'll be only 14 bucks.

I wouldn't be bothered though, you only spent 4 more bucks.

Thanks for the heads up, but I cancelled it a while ago.
I found out they were putting it in the WB International Cinema box and they have some great titles there which I don't own, so I'll just be picking that up in September.

I didn't realize there was a struggle between the two. That explains the bewildering unavailabily of the movie. Could you provide more info on this?

I'd be more than willing to purchase it again but at fourteen bucks it looks like there won't be much to lure you in again for another round.

Shame. Warner has the best movies by Truffaut and Antonioni and they're flimsying them up! (I clearly have no business criticizing Warner after all they've done to the DVD market)

The following article was taken from IMDb. Granted IMDb is known for being wrong a lot, this seems to hold a lot of water and make the most sense.

"PARIS, July 9 (AFP) - Heirs of the late French director Francois Truffaut, who died of a brain tumour 20 years ago, have launched legal proceedings against Time Warner and its French subsidiary over the DVD rights to his Oscar-winning 1973 film "La Nuit Americaine", aka "Day for Night".

Lawyers for Laura, Eva and Josephine Truffaut said they were applying for a summary judgement against Time Warner Inc and Warner Bros France for the "illegal production and sale of the DVD" of the movie, which won an Oscar for Best Foreign Film.

The heirs are asking that an expert be named to assess alleged damage and force Warner to pay out a minimum EUR 1 million (USD 1.2 million) provision and EUR 500 per day

pending a halt in the production and sale of the DVD, the family lawyer Francois Zimeray told AFP.

"This case is typical of the difficult relations between artists and the giants of world distribution," Zimeray said. Truffaut himself "never made a cent" on the contracts with Warner, who said the account was in the red.

Rights to the film, released in theatres May 24, 1973, were ceded to Warner by the French company Films du Carosse for 30 years, thus expiring May 24, 2003.

But the French plaintiffs claim Time Warner and its subsidiaries produced a DVD of the "New Wave" director's movie "only shortly before" the expiry of the rights. The DVD was released in France on November 20, 2002, and in the United States on March 18, 2003.

The film firms thus "became counterfeiters because they continued to produce and sell (it) posterior to May 24," according to the text of the legal assignation.

A bailiff has reported that the DVD was on sale in Paris stores June 30.

"There is a tolerance allowing editors of books and records to sell stocks after rights expire," Zimeray said. "But when tens of thousands of DVDs are produced shortly before the deadline, that is called abusing the law."

He said Warner had ceded the rights worldwide to television stations, and that in France one channel had screened the film last June 3 after acquiring rights for a nine-month period as from last March 1.

The proceedings have been filed before the Nanterre law court in the western Paris suburbs."

I think I can get it a store pretty close near me for 35$ new.
I probably will with my birthday money.
Thanks for the info though, I didn't know ebay users were selling this (although, logically, why wouldn't they?).

Well I got it for 25$...
Meh.
I guess the extra 10$ are worth it for you
That's almost 1 1/2 hours worth of work for me.
Extra.
Good for you.
Boy.

Ten bucks isn't little for me either - that's like what, 45 minutes of work for me? Yeah, it's a lot since I can buy another dvd with that money. But I don't trust ebay so, yeah. It'll have to wait till my birthday later this month.

^That's the the spirit!

I was lazy earlier. But I happened upon this:

Earlier this year, Columbia/Tristar took a lot of their titles out of circulation -- Louis Malle, John Huston, Kaurismaki, and Coronenberg -- and can now be found on DDD for six dollars.

Here's the link:

Wicked, I didn't know that. Thanks.
I'd been meaning to get Fat City for a while, and the Swimmer recently obviously.
I need to get Spider, Vanya, and a few other titles, but that'll be another time.
I need to get some more stuff from the Kino sale.
If only I could scrape up 200 bucks for dvds this month...

No more anything - I guess I'll have to mooch food off my parents

I just need to hug it out for a few more weeks, and then Carnivale and Brisco County Jr. will be mine

Whatever little funds I scrap together go towards it. I'm trying to emerge in August with the Buster Keaton set, the D.W. Griffith set, and Les Bonnes Femmes, meaning no Yi Yi or Petulia.

That sounds good. I'd go for the Keaton set, but not that much money for me. Besides, I only wanted the General and Sherlock Jr. dvds more than anything else. I'll rent the rest.

Les Bonnes Femmes is something I was going to get, but backed out at the last minute for a screwball comedy.
There were other better films, including Femmes and L'Age D'Or, but I wanted a light comedy so I said screw it.
There's always next year for more Kino dvds.

Since I'll be paying for the above item with a money order, it looks like I'll have a shot. Looks like I'll only be able to buy a single item however. I'm torn between getting another one or just buying Double Indemnity from DVD Planet so I can collect some points without having to face the dreaded tariff fines from items that go over a certain price.

I should note that my finacial situation peaked over a month ago, and now I have to greatly restrict my purchases I hardly ever buy any non-criterions and don't buy criterions that often anymore).
