    In the show, of course.

    Don Lockwood is dead, J.R gas gone to the great oil platform in the sky...but who now would actually own the film?

    Sue Ellen financed it and produced, but surely someone could find it and have it released (probably straight to DVD)...?

    She was with JR when he died so doubtful
    Probably just wants to get on now and forget the bad times
    I wonder if she had a dream sequence filmed though.....

    Sue Ellen should have offered more of an explanation for why the movie was being shelved temporarily, because the financiers who backed the film would have surely something to say about it. She should have conveyed some industry politics jibber-jabber in her explanation to JR about the delay of its release, but still used it as a threat.

    And once he and Cally were on the outs, Sue Ellen should have indeed released the film. Imagine the scandal that would have caused in the final season, even though Sue Ellen is off the show, if she had ordered from London the release of the movie. It would sure beat Leann Dela Lucci and whatnot.

    Oh I don't think Sue Ellen would release it now, but I'm not sure she actually owns it, so someone else could potentially do so.

    That could have been great for the final season!

    Well yeah it was sort of a disappointment how the movie was just shelved for a later occasion and then never revisited. I like the idea of it coming out in the last season as it would have made Sue Ellen more of a presense on the show even though she had moved to England.

    Back then, it would be hard because it would need a distributor, and the time it takes to do that, people would lawyer up.

    Even if Sue Ellen was not present if Le Ann or somebody else had power over the film it could have gave it more creedance
