Universal - I'm a great fan of your new double- (and triple-) feature method of distributing discs, but is there any chance you could release some of your W.C. Fields' classics?

Double-feature discs with movies like It's A Gift, The Old-Fashioned Way, Poppy, Never Give A Sucker An Even Break, You're Telling Me, International House and My Little Chickadee would be absolutely tremendous.

I echo Jon's sentiments. Also Fields gems like MILLION DOLLAR LEGS, IF I HAD A MILLION, THE MAN ON THE FLYING TRAPEZE, et al.

Thanks for your time & attention.
