Thanks, Ron - as I said, it sure didn't seem like a boot. I actually didn't have a link in the post - I just said if you search the title on eBay you'll find the dealer I got it from - who also had The Geisha Boy at a fairly reasonable cost. The latter is one of my favorite Lewis films.

Missing on R1 DVD: 3 RING CIRCUS (Martin and Lewis) THE SAD SACK (VistaVision) ROCK-A-BYE BABY (R6) DON'T GIVE UP THE SHIP VISIT TO A SMALL PLANET IT'S ONLY MONEY WHO'S MINDING THE STORE? BOEING BOEING (stinks) THREE ON A COUCH (Sony) WAY... WAY OUT (Fox, who cares?) DON'T RAISE THE BRIDGE LOWER THE RIVER (OOP, but you can get it for $3 on ebay or amazon... don't bother) THE BIG MOUTH (Sony) HOOK, LINE AND SINKER (Sony) WHICH WAY TO THE FRONT? (Warner) HARDLY WORKING (Fox) SLAPSTICK OF ANOTHER KIND (don't even know who owns this, don't care-- Lewis' worst film) SMORGASBORD (Warner, shame this one isn't out)
Where's The Geisha Boy?
Atleast Four of those are actually on bluray from Olive Films now. Still too many to available on any format including Hook Line and sinker and all the movies that were in the two paramount sets from about five years ago. I'm going to start ordering the Olive film releases as they are going for about $20 on Amazon. Since the Jazz Singer was released I thought more of his others would start popping up.

Artists and Models was just a added to Netflix streaming and the HD stream looks great. Also a few of these missing Lewis films are also there. The Sad Sack, The Delinquints, Don't Give Up the Ship and Its Only Money, Who's Minding the Store . Also something g called Fight For Life with Morgan Freeman that looks like it may have been made for TV, not sure.

I'm still holding out hope that the titles you just mentioned AND Three Ring Circus, once they get the music clearances squared up, will finally be available on DVD next year.

Jack, Geisha Boy is out thanks to Olive Films on both DVD and Blu-Ray..I'm looking for Sad Sack, Visit to Small Planet, Way, Way Out and Three Ring Circus. i elaborated earlier on here that Antenna TV had the jerry lewis Labor Day Movie Telethon where they aired four of his films last month...Big Mouth, Hook, Line and Sinker, 3 on a Couch and Don't Raise the Bridge...those might be re-airing during the holidays so check local listings if you get that channel in your area.

Sorry Tony. I was responding to Jack Theakston's message above on what needs to be released of Jerry's films on DVD R1, which is who I was addressing in my post. My apologies to you. Just read my answer to Jack as it relates to one and the same thing regarding what's available of Jerry Lewis's films.

Any info on re-releasing the two Paramount Martin & Lewis Collection’s that has been long out of print?

Paramount Pictures Home Entertainment did a tremendous job when it personally released the Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis catalogue of films at great prices. Unfortunately they are now in the hands of another DVD-Bluray distributor and cost an arm-and-a-leg. I would love to get that latest batch especially THE GEISHA BOY (1958) in Blu-ray but at $25 a piece no way. I must be shamefully spoiled on the more reasonable pricing on these. I guess Paramount just wasn't making enough of a profit on the Jerry Lewis franchise which is unfortunate. Jeff T. :D

Help support a blu-ray release of THE INVADERS (ABC 1967-68) tv series starring Roy Thinnes.

Why do you think the price is $25.00? You can buy it on-line for $14.43.

The Martin & Lewis Collections have been recently re-released through Warner Archive Collection at more reasonable prices.

I spun my DVD of Artists & Models last week. Great film, great DVD, and would make a great blu-ray through the Warner Archive.

 

I also spun 3 Ring Circus. Not a great film but as it is in VistaVision would make a stunning blu-ray.

Keith, agreed, but where did you find 3 Ring Circus?

I thought 3 Ring Circus was caught up in rights problems.

Both volumes of the Martin and Lewis collection go for ridiculous prices on Amazon, but somehow I managed to pick up both at FYE for about $55 used - and that's the total amount together. Talk about a deal!
