    Am I correct in finding that there is no DVD release of this title? Does anyone know if it will come to DVD in the near future? If not, who's arm do I need to twist to get this wonderful comedy noticed?

    My roommate is always asking about this title, I'm eager to hear any news.

    Universal released a Letterbox double feature LD of Ghost and Mr. Chicken and The Reluctant Astronaut a few years back and I'm holding on to my copy tightly until Universal gives it a DVD release. I'd love to see all Don Knotts' Universal films issued on DVD.

    Yes, this is a favorite and should be given a proper widescreen release, with commentary (or at least interviews with Knotts). A fun Vic Mizzy score makes this one a treasure and I wish I had it. [​IMG]

    Assuming they were OAR I'd buy the following in a heartbeat:

    The Ghost & Mr. Chicken
    The Reluctant Astronaut
    The Shakiest Gun in the West
    How to Frame a Figg

    I would love an OAR version of this film on DVD, with a commentary by Don Knotts. I read somewhere that the Attaboy Luther refrain was thought up by Andy Griffith. I would love to hear any anecdotes from Don about this wonderful, funny film.

    What? Only eight of us want to see this gem on DVD?
    I am surprised!
    It has a wonderful score, it is CLASSIC Don Knotts, and so many character actors.

    Count me in!!

    My keyboardist in High School figured out that cool Bach-esq organ theme used in the film, and would always perform it during his open solos.

    A really FUN film!

    I just watched it again today on Starz. You know, Pan and Scan really blows. Watching an actor talk to another actor offscreen, when you should be able to see both of them, is really irritating.

    Does anyone know the aspect ratio of this film?
