Support the EDGAR WALLACE DVD PETITION to avoid a Disaster !

It has become obvious now, that the upcoming German DVD releases of
the Egar Wallace Krimis will be no reason for hapiness at all and be
far from Kinowelt quality. Kinowelt released some Edgar Wallace DVDs
some time ago. Instead of high-definition transfers of the original
negatives it is planned that already existing TV-masters will be used
for the DVDs. These masters are often incomplete, edited, not in
correct aspect ratio and suffer from various other problems.

The only way and the last chance to avoid a complete disaster now is
to make responsible people believe, that low-quality DVDs of the
Krimis are not wanted and supported by large audiences both in Germany
and abroad and will not sell.

(Quality DVDs of the Edgar Wallace Krimis Petition) has been created
and needs the support of all German movie lovers as well as of all
foreign fans and admirers of the Krimis.

Please use to get a rough English traslation of the
ideas, the Petition is aiming for. The Petition expressly demands the
inclusion of the foreign language dubbings of the Krimis (which are
available in German vaults) and English subtitles !!!

Please remember that originally Blue Underground was hugely intereted
in acquiring the DVD rights of the Krimis. If they had been
successful, there would have been no need in fighting this petition
today !

The petition was created yesterday at 20:00 p.m. and has gained 113
total signatures so far. But much more signatures will be needed to
ensure that the petition is heard and taken serious by the responsible

Please spread the link to other forums and communities who are
interested in high quality DVD editions of the Wallace Krimis. Please
encourage your friends and relatives to sign and support the Petition
! Extensive statements by a large international community are
desperately needed for our demands !

The latest news on this subject will be discussed at the German Edgar
Wallace board in this thread (German only unfortunately): R_FREUDE__0.html

The Petition is supported by the German Edgar Wallace Board , Deutscher Tonfilm 1929 -1972 (German Sound
Movies 1929 - 1972) and renowned German
author Joachim Kramp, who gave us the profound and beloved books on
the Krimis "Hallo - hier spricht Edgar Wallace !" and "Das Edgar
Wallace Lexikon: Leben - Werk - Filme"
