Drunken DVD

why is there no proper Region 1 DVD release of Drunken Master (1978)?  this is mind boggling to me, when both the hero and villain are still alive to talk to about it.

apparently there is an R2 disc out (this is the cover) which features all this:
Drunken Master
Hong Kong Legends
  • Format: DVD
  • Region: 2 (Not Region Coded)
  • Length: 106 minutes
  • Rated: NR
  • Aspect Ratio: 1.85:1
  • Video: PAL, 16x9 Enhanced
  • Languages: Mandarin Dub, English Dub
  • Subtitles: English
  • Special Features: Hwang Jang Lee Biograpy and Kicking Showcase, Yuen Woo Ping Biography, Interview with Producer Ng See Yuen, Rare Deleted Scene, Trailers, Photo Gallery, Jackie Chan Bio/Filmography 
that's where the picture came from. it would be an easy thing and very marketable thing for someone like Dragon Dynasty to do a top notch job for a release over here.  I'd buy it then.
