Walter from the JB Yahoo-group reports on Monday, November 19: "Just got an e-mail from my record-shop telling me that they have been informed by Warner-records that the release of PETULIA has been postponed indefinitely :-(
There is also no sign of PETULIA anymore on the amazon.de - website..."

Premiere partyAlice’s Adventures In Wonderland has been released on DVD.  That’s the good news.  The bad news is that the print is so bad, I’ve got a ten-year old video taped from TV with a faulty aerial in better shape!  So, only get this if you are desperate (it is cheap) and even then think twice and do without it.

The company concerned is Platinum Disc Corporation of La Crosse, WI, USA, and may God have mercy on them for having the nerve to put this out for public consumption.

It’s pan and scan, unsurprisingly and appears to be region free.  Pity the whole thing wasn’t!  It’s such a shame that it’s not a decent transfer as it’s an excellent film. In fact, I was quite surprised to find so much music not on the original Warner Brothers LP.  This is definitely a candidate for some enterprising company or person to re-record with all the songs and musical bridges intact.
