Ringo wrote a song based on this movie, also titled "Blindman". The song was produced by Klaus Voormann and released as the B-side to "Back Off Boogaloo" in 1972.
Releases for the home movie market are not international, they are released on a country by country basis. "Blindman" has already been released on DVD years ago in various other countries: Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Spain. So the only new thing about this release, is that it is due out in USA and that it has been restored. The USA version will have region code 1 on the DVD.
Release date in USA is 4 November. Note: There is some sex and violence in this movie. The release is preceded by midnight theatrical screenings at IFC Center in New York City on October 7 and 8, and a double feature with Alejandro Jodorowsky’s "El Topo" at the Castro Theater in San Francisco on October 21. And that's another Apple connection. "El Topo" is also owned by Abkco.
