Bad News for Those Who Want to See This Movie
Bad News: Spoke to Paramount home entertainment. The Conformist is a film they no longer own the rights to, but they do not believe that the rights have reverted to the producer(s) either. Those awful VHS tapes that exist and those appalling bootleg DVDs - that's as good as its going to get. The only person who would be able to change this is Bertolucci, but, as posted elsewhere, he seems to have no interest in having this film made available. I'd be happy to be proved wrong, but it looks unlikely. I don't understand, the film is widely admired, often imitated and was hugely influential. Is there some reason this isn't out there when Legally Blonde II is? .
