    A Question For Robert Harris

    My understanding is that Disney has done a wonderful job at preserving their film elements despite screwing up some home video releases to make them look more modern or something.

    Blu-ray Review Laurel & Hardy – The Definitive Restorations Blu-ray Review

    Honestly, I'm fairly happy with my prior dvd set. If this set were dramatically better, I would probably get it. This doesn't seem to be worth it. Maybe someday Criterion will do a Sons of the Desert that is more than slightly better than the DVD.

    It Takes A Thief: The Complete Series DVD Review

    It's oop and that's never going to happen. If you can find the set, there are more practical cases you can easily buy that will hold the discs if that's what you want.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Laurel & Hardy: The Definitive Restorations - in Blu-ray

    Mr. Harris. I, like many here, previously purchased this set , which was the best prior presentation of the L&H's work and had the bonus of being largely complete for sound recordings. Any idea whether it is worth it to upgrade from DVD?

    Mr. Ed -- The Complete Series

    I guess you're joking. Mr. Ed has fairly limited appeal. I find it hard to believe that it would be a particularly lucrative target for a bootlegger or worth it to do a detailed reproduction of the original packaging.

    Shazam! (1974-77) gets restoration

    Yes, that would be great, although I would also like more of the Famous Classic Tales and a dvd release of Mouse on the Mayflower.

    Mr. Ed -- The Complete Series

    Is there any way to tell if the Complete Series set is a bootleg by looking at it? Why would someone go to the trouble to bootleg Mr. Ed in a way that's not immediately obvious?

    Kino Lorber Insider (Read Guidelines Post #3)

    The Fu Manchu titles were restored. At one time, I read that Hugh Hefner had paid for the restoration and may have been a hold up on the release as he wanted to get back his money, but I am not sure if that still applies or if his estate would care.

    Kino Lorber Insider (Read Guidelines Post #3)

    As you have put out some Universal owned Paramount horrors like Supernatural, could you release the two Warner Oland Fu Manchu films, The Mysterious and The Return of? They were restored by UCLA some years ago.

    Dragnet 1967

    That didn't happen. The script was written by Richard L. Breen, who wrote the 1954 Dragnet movie and many other films. he wrote it because he hated .22 rife for Christmas and felt it was inappropriate. Jack Webb greatly admired his writing and loved the script. It was originally performed on...
