"It Couldn't Happen Here" on DVD

#1 Post by grantwww » Sat 08 Sep 2012, 10:24 am

The iTunes commentary for "Elysium" confirms that "It Couldn't Happen Here" is going to be released on DVD.

Talking about people that the PSB could work with:

David: Barbara Windsor sings.

Neil: We've worked with Barbara Windsor.

David: Oh, of course. She's in "It Couldn't Happen Here".

Neil: Which is going to be reissued on DVD.

David: And Blu-Ray?

Neil: No, I don't know that. Probably.

David: Are you going to do a commentary for it?

Neil: Of course.

Chris: That's why we're doing it.

And some more chat about the movie.

Yippee! I *love* that film. Have it on VHS and a friend transferred it to DVD for me but picture quality is lacking. Can't wait for the DVD. Good news. :)

What's the point of restoring this movie to DVD and not BD?

Sold my Japanese laserdisc for a nice sum a few years ago, but made a dvd copy to hold me over.

Region free Blu-Ray please.

This is good news (as my VHS copy is stored away somewhere and I couldn't be bothered to transfer it to DVD).
Hope they also release 1989 Tour DVD and Discovery Tour DVD too!

I agree that this is good news. Joss Ackland in the Always on my mind segment is Priceless. And I want the DiscoVery Tour on DVD, too.

I know this probably won't happen but I hope they get other (surviving) actors who were in the film to do some commentary on the DVD. I think Barbara Windsor would be up for it although Joss Ackland wouldn't because I think he said he regretted doing it. Gareth Hunt is sadly no longer with us and not sure if Neil Dickson would agree. It would be great to hear their memories of working on the film. Also Jack Bond (the director) too?!

Joss Ackland pretty much stole the show, he is indeed priceless in Always on my Mind and never fails to make me giggle. For me it was a shame about Barbara Windsor, I don't think she's a good actress at all.

Babs Windsor would definitely be up for it. She's a game girl. Mr Ackland should also do it - even if he regretted it.
Perhaps he could condemn ICHH as " Ego Video " ...

Add my support. That is a good idea.

I hope Neil is not having a laugh, or there would be harm done.
