I recently emailed Sylvia Stoddard and this was what she had to say about a possible Henie Collection:
Boy, I sure hope so. I made a proposal to Fox last year to do them all. I have a stellar group of skaters lined up to do commentary--including one woman who actually skated in some of the movies and a man who had an affair with Sonja. Given the time frame (I recorded the commentary for Sun Valley Serenade last December), I think it was more a companion to Orchestra Wives than the first of a Sonja set.
She further commented on her relationship with Fox and how those big moguls seem to work:
Unfortunately, I am totally out of the loop regarding Fox releases. At the time I did the liner notes for The Gang's All Here, it was scheduled for release on February 7, 2006 Bedazzled, Lucky Lady and Two for the Road were scheduled for the following week. As all HTF readers know, the studios blunder in, announce stuff, and then realize there are legal problems or missing source materials. I had to get Boomerang! at an inflated price on eBay, just so I'd have a copy of my liner notes in case that one never came out at all.
Even when I was doing 10 of these a month, I never had a clue what extras were going to be on the released DVD. I usually did my work 6-8 months before scheduled release. The producers I work with on the audio commentaries are just as clueless. Fox is notorious for asking them to find someone and make an audio commentary with five days before it's due.
To show you just how small my connection is to Fox, it took me almost 6 months to get a complete set of the lobby cards for Pin Up Girl, Week-End in Havana and Daddy Long Legs, despite the fact that I wrote the captions
