Roger Feigelson of Intrada says:

We tried to do TKAM. Even got the original elements and restored them, but got thrown a curve ball when the licensor turned out to be the film's producer who refused to consider licensing the rights.

Oh my god, this is the single most heartbreaking thing I've read on this board in years. What the hell?!

I don't understand why they refuse to license music if the label is the one who will pay for everything.
This happened with Intrada or other specialty label before, after the production was done?

I wonder how long ago this was - the only credited* producer is Alan J. Pakula (not only a producer with great taste & a fine director, but by the accounts I've read a lovely person) & he's been dead for 14 years.

*perhaps credited is the key word & there's somebody else involved. Or perhaps it's Pakula's estate that's holding it up.

That's why rights are wrong the way they are. Anybody having rights over a work of cultural interest should be forced by law to allow it's distribution.

And why is that, exactly? So we can own soundtrack CDs?

Disappointing news. But maybe we'll see a release further down the line.

Hmmmm....

1. Licensing the rights and making money

or

2. Refusing to licence and not making money.


Tough choice...

...yet the much inferior Mainstream CD tracks are available as an Amazon.com download, supposedly legally...who owns these, the Jackie Mills estate or Legacy?

The original producers are all dead.

I wonder if we all could sign some kind of petition to have the score released on CD.

Wouldn't it have been wiser and more respectful to the licensor to seek the licensing rights before restoring the elements? Some people might not appreciate being presented with a fait accompli.

Things will be different after the revolution comrad! All will be forced to share! smile

Relax pal. It's a business decision. Disappointing maybe. Curious certainly. But hardly the end of the world.

LMF-SOB-GDAP!

Sorry, had to share my acronym of disappointment.

The good news here is the original elements have been located and restored. That's the important thing.

I'm certain a CD will be released someday - if not by Intrada, then somebody else.

I think it happened before to La-La Land. But I can't remember which title it was that they had to scrap.
