    I'm honestly curious and not trying to be snarky. RAH, Kevin Koster, and you have all mentioned 6'8". I'll have to rewatch (as if I needed an excuse).

    In text, Harvey is something like 6'3". But Jimmy Stewart was that height (or thereabouts and he needed to look up to see his friend.) Therefore, he reset Harvey's height accordingly. Harvey of course has had no comment on the matter, but I am told he appreciated Stewart's efforts in this area.

    Oh dad-gum that's funny. And oh so appropriate from Kevin. Thanks

    Old man - you were right. I watched the BD of this tonight and the uplift from DVD is enormous.
    In cliched terms - I saw things in this film that I hadn't in >100 viewings.
    To understand how the cash-strapped unwashed public thinks (not to forward myself as champion) - I have >300 dvds of movies

    I would really like to see The Merry Widow and Foolish Wives on Blu-Ray - these were sumptuous productions.
    Lots of great movies on that list and one of the very few movies that was actually exhibited in 8-perf, Strategic Air Command!
