"Come Back To The 5 & Dime" DVD Delay Explained
What seems like forever ago, 'Cher News' reported that the lengthy-titled 1982 movie 'Come Back To The Five & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean' was going to be released on DVD.
One of its stars, Mark Patton, initially revealed the DVD release plans late last year, saying, "I just did my commentary for it - so it's getting ready to come out". However, we've heard nothing about the release since, and no reason has been given as to why the DVD hasn't hit stores yet.
Bill Nugent, has explained the DVD's delay to us...
Before confirming his status as a friend of Patton - "Yes, he and I are friends. I also help out with the conventions he attends, etc" - Nugent explained why the DVD has not yet been released; "It has something to do with the music rights. When those are secure, it will be released."
He continued, "The release date has been given and then cancelled many times."
The movie - for which Cher received a Golden Globe nomination - is the only one of hers that has not yet been released on DVD.
