The Big Circus revisited and Batmania…

Gee Rhonda why aren't we out on DVD yet?Well, it’s been over a year now since we started The Big Circus Project here at Sparkplug.

For the casual reader, this is my quest to get a childhood favourite film – The Big Circus – on DVD.

Apparently Warner Brothers have the rights to the Allied Artists film catalogue and they are starting to bring them out on DVD as “Cult Classics”.  Today, as a matter of fact, Warners is bringing several Allied Artists science fiction films (World Without End and Satellite in the Sky) out on DVD as Best Buy exclusive double features.

I am sure that it is just a matter of time before they reach down into the pile and pluck up The Big Circus and bring it at last to DVD.

In the meantime, it is gratifying to hear from all of the fans of TBC out there.  And I thought that I was alone in my secret desire…


The Dark Knight continues to rack up new box office records every day.  It has made over $300 million so far and is showing no sign of slowing down.  There are even whispers that it could surplant Titanic as the biggest grossing film of all time. 

And that would be satisfying to any true Batman fan.
