To All of you negative Nellie's who always say, there is no interest, and it cost too much etc. etc. etc.

Has any one of you ever been to the www.BluRay.com website?

Have you ever looked at all the obscure, crappy, out of date, movies that are being released on a monthly basis.
Some are so obscure, I doubt whether they will sell 10 of them.

Elvis is the most popular entertainer in history.

Go to that website and look at all the movies that gets released and tell me they will sell more than Elvis will.
I have never heard of 90% of those movies.

Agreed cadillac-elvis, I am a member there, it amazes me that,some of those movies will sell 500 or more copies, but apparently, they do! WB Archives, releases quite a few too....

I don't think the issue is whether Warner's could sell a reasonable amount of copies of the original film via niche websites.

It's whether it would be cost effective to prepare and compile a special edition built around previously unseen footage. They would certainly expect a much bigger return on their investment due to the production costs of such a project.

Of course, I would love to see it happen, but I doubt the re-edited film that everyone really wants would shift enough copies to make the project commercially viable.

Correct.

Because they've waited too long. 50 years later, with a project like Elvis On Tour, interest will be minimal, partly due to the fact that the people who wanted and would buy it are dying out.

But that's something no one can control.

And also there is a difference between restoring one movie compared to having to transfer countless reels and then assemble it all into something

The best time would have been when EOT was re released in the theaters several years ago. That seemed to generate a fair amount of interest. I’m just not sure a project like this would generate enough attention to justify the cost. I certainly hope I’m wrong.

I went to a theater to see it back then. It was like watching the bluray on a big screen. The theater was about 50% full. The volume was too low for my liking too. Seems like Warner Bros. didn't put much effort then. Maybe they were testing the waters? It did have a decent response from what I remember.

I went to a screening in Charlotte. It was a packed house. It was a really great night. The volume was low at my theatre also.

My guess is that all the available footage already has been scanned and maybe even processed. There however more cost connected with this, like fees to musicians and royalties to songwriters.

Yes, it's the greed of the copyright holders which postpones/scuppers footage releases with songs on them.

:cry: ...but who cares?! We, the collectors/fans have tons ELVIS ON TOUR from the Bootleg-Market.
If Sony/BMG/WB/EPE or whoever released the stuff....i guess more than 81677 Fans will be disappointed... :roll:
