Not one store in town carries this, and of the 2 I asked, none will.

I got mine yesterday from Amazon, which was a pre-order back when it was $15.99.

The transfer looks quite good, with healthy grain intact and vivid colors. The lossless mono audio is also clear and accurate. Definitely a nice upgrade over the old DVD...

I got mine from a local DVD/Video shop for $11 used. Not bad considering it's a blu-ray and in mint condition. I seem to be the f'n princess of defective corrupted rotting discs. So glad I found this dirt cheap considering none of the stores got any copies.

Not bad considering it came out the day before you bought it. That person must really have disliked the movie. I'll wait until Amazon sells it for $15 before I buy it.

Here's a great article about Clue.

http://www.buzzfeed.com/adambvary/so...y-story-of-how

This paragraph sums up Paramount's opinion of home video:

"Amazingly, Paramount has yet to capitalize on*Clue’s rabid and visible cult fan base. Last year, the studio’s home video division released a Blu-ray edition of the film with*zero*special features. “I asked my agents and manager to call Paramount and ask if they wanted me to do a commentary or anything,” says Lynn. “And they said, ‘Nope.’ I find it very odd.” Paramount never responded to requests for comment, but Landis does offer this dour perspective: “I think the home video market has changed so much that they’re really not investing money in it."

I recall Howard Stern saying that he was interested in doing a special edition of Private Parts, but Paramount just wasn't interested. Pathetic.

Awesome article!

Had no idea that Carrie Fisher was originally cast as Miss Scarlet or that Lynn originally wanted Rowan Atkinson to play Wadsworth. Very interesting stuff!
