To be honest, I'd love to bring it out this year in memory of Rusty, but I just don't know. After The Dragon Painter dvd, we have our next theatrical release which is THE EXILES from 1961 -- premiering in Berlin next week.
I know this isn't the answer anyone wants to hear and no one will like it, but I just need to be honest. We're shorthanded in staff (down to just Amy and I for the next couple of months) and working hard on helping Charles Burnett make another film. Anyone who has seen KILLER OF SHEEP, TO SLEEP WITH ANGER and NIGHTJOHN might understand why this is a priority.
The TCM deal is the reason why we produced the Chase program and I'm very happy that they are played fairly frequently. I'd like to think that when the Killer of Sheep and I am Cuba dvd money comes in, we'll have something extra to produce some of our DVD pet projects like Chase and Marcel Ophuls. (They used to perform together in Vaudeville. I swear...)
