    The long wait for many is soon to be over. Schindler's List will be released
    on March 9th by Universal. Most of the details are still forthcoming but so
    far it looks like there are three versions planned, anamorphic 1.85:1, pan &
    scan and a deluxe version. The two regular versions will retail for $26.95
    while the deluxe will list at $79.99. Audio looks like Dolby 5.1 no extras
    have been formally announced yet. Just as a point of information, the retail
    sites that are taking orders right now typically have the UPC for these
    titles wrong, they do not pass the checksum test. The correct UPCs are
    Widescreen: 025192386626, P&S: 025192115226 and Deluxe: 025192423628.

    Columbia/Tri-Star will release the Front, a film staring Woody Allen
    concerning the infamous 1950's Communist black list in Hollywood. The
    release date is set for February 17th with a list of $24.95. Specs are
    stereo audio and anamorphic video.

    A&E will release several titles on February 24th including; Randall And
    Hopkirk (Deceased) (1969), Agatha Christie Megaset Collection (includes 13
    two hour movies for $139.98) and Barbarians.

    A few titles are being released by Fox Lorber on March 16th. Dangerous
    Liaisons (Les Liaisons Dangereuses), at least the fifth treatment of this
    book will be released as a regular edition featuring 2.0 audio and
    anamorphic video for $29.95. There is also listed Dangerous Liaisons (Les
    Liaisons Dangereuses) (Extended French Language) for $49.95 which has Dolby
    5.1 listed as the audio format. Still awaiting confirmation on the different
    audio formats. Also on that date is Dream Catcher (1999), Firefly Dreams and
    Under The Skin Of The City.

    New video has two documentaries set for release on February 24th, Death: A
    Love Story and It Was A Wonderful Life both listing at $24.95.

    discontinued Producers (MGM/UA/ Special Edition). Fox has discontinued Big
