    On another forum, we have a KL Support person. We'll ask him to also setup an account at HTF, so he could answer questions in the Discussions area. This is what they said there:

    Sorry for all of the issues. On some newer titles we've been hit manufacturing production issues and delays and shortages that have been out of our hands (such as mis-stamped Night Strangler's that were rejected before they went out to customers). This has been hitting not just us, but many other labels this season - keep in mind we all use the same replication companies.

    We're helping as many as you as we can and by all means use the form here, but if we don't have it, we can't send it. Once again, venting on public boards doesn't do so much and we don't know who you are, please use this form here to contact us.
    http://www.kinolorber.com/customer-service
    We're a small team and going through these one by one trying to resolve your problems. If you want to order elsewhere, that's fine as well, we still recommend you use a reliable vendor.

    So please everyone - cut us a break-especially on boards like this that should be focused discussing Blu-rays releases and the great add-on content we're including. These supply chain/customer issues concern us too. Be assured, we're working diligently to the DVD and Blu-rays in your hands.

    I recently had occasion to contact KL's customer service line and the experience was first rate. I wish I could remember the customer rep's name but she was wonderful. Eager to help and get the issue resolved (it was). Put an X next to satisfied customer :) As has been noted, a forum like this is hardly the place to deal with blu ray/DVD issues.

    I concur.
    KL are always transparent and professional in their responses. The real issue in the USA is the total lack of SUFFICIENT replication facilities for blu ray releases , I suppose due to falling demand in general for physical media. This may be 'heresay' but I heard one of the major replication facilities closed down recently putting even more pressure on the limited capacity left for blu ray new releases ,let alone exisiting titles awaiting a repress. Here in the UK we are fortunate to have sufficient capacity and new releases in the main hit street date on time.

    The problems with manufacturing seems to have hit more than just one company.

    Yep, couldn't be happier about Sweet Charity. I hadn't imported it, hoping someone would pick it up. Now I look forward to owning it and giving away my DVD.

    Great news! I hope the blu ray is the complete Roadshow presentation! The French import has the overture and intermission but eliminated the entr'acte!

    I wonder if you get to choose which ending you want or if the alternate ending plays after the picture ends like it does when TCM has broadcast the picture.

    Sweet Charity Great! Now hopefully Universal's Thoroughly Modern Millie and Flower Drum Song will follow some time next year.

    Glad to see it coming out. But you'd think when mentioning screenwriter Peter Stone, they'd also mention Father Goose in his credits. After all, he won the Oscar for it.

    I think I read on the HTF that there was a scene in Sweet Charity that was on the VHS and left out on the DVD. I don't think it had to do with the ending. Am I right on this?
