Movie has been remastered, but remains uncirculated
It's my understanding that this great movie was re-mastered in the mid-90s, and even shown for one week in New York City before suddenly being taken out of circulation. Apparently, there is a copyright problem over ONE SONG in the movie, which has apparently caused Warner Bros./Turner Classic Movies, or whomever has its rights, to withhold release of The Desert Song (1944 version) from theatrical circulation or home video and DVD. One would think there must be a way around this stumbling block, even if the (probably unfamiliar, non-Romberg) song had to be deleted to permit its re-release. -- Bob Elsner, Palm Sprngs, CA
