I, too, saw this over 25 years ago and have never forgotten it. It was one of the most splendidly beautiful productions of the story I have ever seen. The chemistry between George C. Scott and Trish Van de Vere was magnificent.
I also remember that Ms. Van de Vere played Beauty as a strong-willed woman, not a simperer as the character has been portrayed. Although I loved the Disney version, as well as the TV series, this production was the best of the traditional ones. I seem to recall being told at one time that Mr. Scott bought the rights to the production. If that is so, then, Mr. Scott, please allow its release to DVD. I see that I am not the only one who wants a copy.
