    It has been almost 11 years since you released the following films on DVD:

    [*]How to Frame A Figg
    [*]The Love God?
    [*]The Ghost and Mr. Chicken
    [*]The Reluctant Astronaut
    [*]The Shakiest Gun in the West
    [/list]When can we expect a Blu-ray set? The DVD are nice, but an HD release of The Ghost and Mr. Chicken, my favorite Don Knott's movie, would be fantastic.

    I have them all on DVD and would especially like to see a BD of The Ghost and Mr. Chicken.

    I was reading something this morning that quoted from The Ghost and Mr. Chicken and it made me wish I had this Don Knotts collection in HD to give it a spin.


    Come on Universal, I'm waiting to give you my money. Are you gonna take it? Are you man enough to take it? What's the problem, pal?

    The horribleness and the awfulness of it will never actually be forgotten.

    (If this isn't released on BD soon!)

    I would love to have these films on Blu-ray. I bought all of the DVDs as soon as they were released. And now we wait, and hope that Universal will reward us with some Don Knotts classics as club exclusives.


    I see that Disney, through it's movie club, is offering the "Herbie" movies and the first "Apple Dumpling Gang" film on blu-ray. And Warner offers "Incredible Mr. Limpet" and "Pleasantville" on blu-ray.


    Now, we just need to convince Universal that their 5 Don Knotts films deserve blu-ray releases.

    The whole Blu-ray situation for stuff like this is so bad. I have all these films on DVD. I become more pessimistic by the day that they (and so many other titles) will ever see a Blu-ray release. :(
