I thought it was about time Abbott & Costello got a mention. Anyone know if there is news of more blu-ray releases planned for the boys. I would like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde next. Thank you.

For me, it's Buck Privates, In The Navy, Hold That Ghost, Meet The Invisible Man, and my absolute favorite of theirs, The Time Of Their Lives.

For me, the titles most wanted are:

 

HOLD THAT GHOST

WHO DONE IT?

KEEP 'EM FLYING

THE TIME OF THEIR LIVES

MEET THE KILLER

MEET INVISIBLE MAN

BUCK PRIVATES COME HOME

IN SOCIETY

IN THE NAVY 

LITTLE GIANT

 

All of them, with the exception of IN THE NAVY, look great on the DVDs. IN THE NAVY's fine grain must be in poor condition. Hopefully the original negative is still in good shape. I guess I wouldn't mind all the Universal's on Blu ray. I grew up with these films, and like the horror films, they mean a lot to me.

I think they released their best...meet Frankenstein. I'm happy that they went BD with that one and I can be content with the rest in SD.


...retired at last...and Ray Harryhausen at my side!!!

If anything is done, the smart thing to do would be to put them out as double feature discs, given the short running times and blu's storage capacity. The perceived value would probably help sales.

If any of these are to emerge on Blu-ray (very iffy), I am almost certain they will come from Europe.

All their unreleased Universal films from 1941-1945 films would get my vote as that is when they were fresh and at their funniest: full of energy and improvs. Other than Meet Frankenstein I've always found the rest of the "meet series" to be overrated. They were done when the boys were older and losing interest in their films. Their lack of energy in their 1950's films is very apparent. They displayed much more energy in their 1950's TV show and TV appearances.

 

In the Navy

Hold That Ghost

Keep em Flying

Ride em Cowboy

Pardon My Sarong

Who Done it

It Ain't Hay

Hit the Ice

In Society

Here come the Coeds

The Naughty Nineties

 

I would also like the 3 bigger budgeted MGM films from this period which were also very good:

Rio Rita

Lost in a Harem

In Hollywood

It would be great if they would re-release BUCK PRIVATES without the DNR.

I'll take the Marx Brothers' Duck Soup, Horse Feathers and Monkey Business instead of any more A&C. And W.C. Fields' It's A Gift, Never Give A Sucker An Even Break and the Bank Dick.

Don't care for The Marx Brothers, but I'll take W. C. Fields, for sure!
