December 2002 News

Wild At Heart SE DVD in 2003? is reporting in their rumor mill today that MGM is developing a special edition DVD of Wild At Heart for release sometime in 2003. This is somewhat old news, but no word on this disc had been heard for a while, so the fact that it's still being mentioned bodes well for a 2003 release. Keep in mind that it's called the rumor mill for a good reason, so nothing is set in stone. But given the high sales of their Blue Velvet SE DVD, it would only make sense for MGM to want to exploit their other Lynch title in the same manner. If they do as good a job on Wild At Heart as they did on Blue Velvet, this should be a great disc.

No Eraserhead DVD for the holidays

Looks we're all going to have to wait a bit longer for the new Eraserhead DVD. Lynch had this to say in the chatroom on his site:
"DAVIDLYNCH [7:18 PM PST]: I HAVE VERY BAD NEWS ABOUT ERASERHEAD -- WE HAVE HAD NO LUCK GETTING A GOOD CHECK DISC AND ARE NOW MOVING TO A NEW COMPANY -- ERASERHEAD WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE (?) FOR CHRISTMAS .... THIS IS VERY BAD BECAUSE IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN AND I AM PRETTY SICK ABOUT IT." No word yet on a new timeframe, but if they are starting over with a brand new authoring company, I wouldn't expect to see anything till second quarter of 2003 at the earliest.

Frances Bay injured in car accident

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Actress Frances Bay, who has played grandmothers and other elderly women in scores of movies and TV shows, was in critical condition after surgery to amputate part of her right leg, a hospital spokeswoman said.
The 83-year-old actress, who portrayed Adam Sandler's grandmother in "Happy Gilmore," was struck by a car Thursday in Glendale.
She underwent surgery Thursday night at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center where doctors amputated her right leg below the knee, said hospital spokeswoman Adelaida De La Cerda.
Bay broke both her legs and suffered a head injury, multiple abrasions and a possible broken arm in Thursday's accident, De LA Cerda said Friday.
"We're getting inundated with people coming in to visit and we need to curtail that," De La Cerda said, adding only immediate family members would be allowed to visit the popular actress, who was hospitalized in an intensive care ward.
Bay has appeared in dozens of TV shows, including a memorable recurring role on "Seinfeld" as the elderly lady mugged by Jerry Seinfeld in a fight over a rye. She also had a recurring role on "The Hughley's" as Mrs. Fitch.
She has appeared in more than 50 movies, including last year's "The Wedding Planner" with Jennifer Lopez. Others include "Twins" with Arnold Schwarzenegger, "Inspector Gadget" with Matthew Broderick and "Big Top Pee-wee" with Paul Reubens.

Site update

As you can probably tell by the amount of time between news updates, there's just not a lot of Lynch news going on lately. I'm still working on getting the full site up, and hopefully it'll be up in the next couple of months. Several people have asked what's taking so long in getting all of LynchNet back up and running. The reason for the delays is that I want to really beef up the content part of the site. Before, the site was largely multimedia. I'm working on increasing the informational part of the site with lots more interviews, articles, and info about Lynch's various works. All that takes time to both research and create, thus the delays. But I promise, it'll be worth the wait!
