This is my annual post asking for "The Flim Flam Man" and "No Time for Sergeants" on DVD.

These are the two key movies that I'm missing.

The former title is purported to be George C. Scott's personal favorite among his performances.

The latter is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen.

Here's hoping

I have to agree with you that No Time for Sergeants is one funny film. Along with Andy Griffith you have Nick Adams and a small role for Don Knotts. Myron McCormick was great as the put upon Sergeant. Warner Brothers could do no wrong in releasing this on DVD for their 85th Anniversary. Especially if they doubled it up with Onionhead.

I'm surprised that THE FLIM FLAM MAN is not out yet. In addition to Scott, it has one of Jerry Goldsmith's greatest scores!

It's also one of Irvin Kershner's (Empire Strikes Back) best films.
