The movie has never been and will never be released on DVD, so i doubt these are originals. Usually some Chinaman took the effort to remaster it on dvd.

Thanks and that blows. I’ll have a look around some flea markets this summer and see if the Chinaman shipped any to here :bigsmile:

Not really. AFAIK it has never been officially on DVD – and Universal Home Entertainment (who currently holds the home video rights for the movie) has no current plans to release it on DVD or any other digital video form. This is most likely because the movie was one of the biggest flops of the 1980s.

They obviously don’t hold the rights Howard the duck DVD and its put out by these guys http://www.umbrellaent.com.au/

True for Australia. My post was about the movie’s home video rights in the U.S.

And Australia does not use the same television/video standard as the U.S., AFAIK. Australia uses the PAL standard, which is largely incompatible with the NTSC standard used in the U.S. And that DVD might not have been coded with a specific region – but many DVD players in the U.S. can read only Region 1-coded DVDs.

It’s region free :wink:

Indeed! Wikipedia has been updated

The opinion of the film to the general public while being negative, does however still have a cult following which was strong enough to see a 2007 DVD release in Europe (UK in 2008), and a screening at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco. [1] A fansite titled “Misunderstood Mallard” is also online detailing the film, and many pieces of collectable memoribillia. This cult following has also been strong enough for the staff of the Internet Movie Database website, to give it their “Film of the Day” accolade in 2006.

I’m still wanting a copy. Great movie…
