It's 2005 and "Two For The Road" is STILL not out on DVD
Am I the only one who wants this movie to be cleaned up and put on DVD but pronto!? The last time I rented this at Blockbuster the copy was so bad it was like watching it through a dirty window.
What a shame that such a carefully made, well-acted 60's flick has been so neglected.
Please Note: Albert Finney and Eleanor Bron are still around so the possibility still exists of a Special Feature interview segment. I'm sure they have some interesting stories about the making of this film.
And Stanley Donen, the film's director, is now pushing 81 (his birthday will be on April 13). He also directed Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face and Charade.
