Anonymous asked [some time ago]: Can I buy 'The Karen Carpenter Story' DVD anywhere?
The short answer is "no." Although it was once available on video (Laser disc and VHS) in Japan, it has never been released in the US. I have not heard that it was ever released on DVD in any format, but, if it has, it still wouldn't play on US players. To the best of my knowledge, there is no legal way of obtaining a licensed copy on DVD, though it still might be aired on TV from time to time.
Sorry. Apparently, Richard Carpenter was very sorry it was made (though he contributed to it) and does not want it released in the US (though that is a rumor, not a fact).
