It’s a rarity when a studio makes a public domain production available, whether directly or via a license to a sub, but Disney has done just that – twice in a short period of time – and both to a savvy Kino Lorber.
John Cromwell’s First Made for Each Other, a delightfully heartwarming (don’t let that frighten you off) story of a young family in trouble, and most recently Nothing Sacred.
