Twitter, I just learned that this week Disney has very quietly launched their own manufactured-on-demand DVD-R program, the Disney Generations Collection.
The launch was so quiet that it's hard to find more than a couple references to the program via Google as yet.
The first three titles are AMY (1981), GOLDRUSH (1998), and STUDENT EXCHANGE (1987).
I'm very excited about AMY, a film about a teacher of deaf children which I've not seen since its original theatrical release. The movie stars Jenny Agutter in the title role, with a supporting cast including Margaret O'Brien (who was then in her early 40s), Barry Newman, and Nanette Fabray; the casting of Fabray was particularly interesting as she is hearing-impaired in real life. I've been looking for this film to come to DVD for a long, long time.
GOLDRUSH is a TV-movie starring Alyssa Milano, and STUDENT EXCHANGE is another TV-movie with a cast including a young Maura Tierney and Heather Graham, plus Lisa Hartman, Gavin McLeod, Lindsay Wagner, and O.J. Simpson, back when everyone thought he was a nice guy.
At the Disney site buyers can click to buy direct from Disney or at Amazon, where one can find pages for AMY, GOLDRUSH, and STUDENT EXCHANGE.
Many of us have been watching for rumored MOD programs coming from Disney and Fox, and in the case of Disney, it's now here!
