    I remember when Adolf Green said he saw The Big Parade at the Astor. I was floored. And very envious. I didn't think there was anybody alive who could even say that. Gone quite a few years now...

    Well if a movie doesn't have an exclusives downtown reserved seat engagement in 70MM it can't be very good.

    I was wondering which Goodbye Mr Chips he was referring to until he said since I saw it in theaters which of course means before it was on television and most probably on its original release. Now if he saw the Donat when it was in theaters even if he were let's say 10 he would be about 92 which...

    I've always preferred Ivanhoe to Robin Hood. Stanley Donen said he was dating Taylor in the early 50s and she didn't want to go to England to make the film because she wanted to stay with him. He talked her into doing it and was nonplussed to find while in England she forgot about him.

    I'm surprised England hasn't come up with a bluray of Evergreen a very beloved film.

    What's interesting about Minnelli is that people who worked with him talk about his obsession with decor as if it were the most important thing about his films. MacLaine was asked about SCR and talked about him being more interested in placing a lamp than directing people. Or him requesting the...

    The best thing about NV is Anne Revere and she needs no Technicolor to be the mother every human being deserves and rarely if ever gets.

    I can't believe there are other Kay Francis fans. What's going on with one of the all-time great comedies Trouble in Paradise?

    I'm aging rapidly. I'd like to see a bluray of Royal Wedding before I go to my reward.

    I think to this day Life With Father is the longest running Broadway play. Yet I've never seen it done. Not even in community theaters. Yet it must be somewhere.

    A few that you mentioned already have blurays. Are you not happy with them and believe they should be redone? It is interesting that they went for Madame Curie before Goodbye Mr Chips and Random Harvest. Poor elements? I'm surprised Elvis's picture postcard movies like Fun in Acapulco and Blue...

    It is also available on youtube in a washed out soft looking print. Somebody probably just uploaded a pirate. The thing is I started watching it and I couldn't stop despite my demands for visual quality. I hadn't seen it in many many years and I found it such a joy with two of the very greatest...

    It would be so great if they released Life with Father on bluray as I have already said. I mean come on. Take Me Out to the Ballgame instead? And Jimmy Lydon is still alive.

    Do you think they'll ever release Babes on Broadway on bluray? It's Rooney Garland and Berkeley at their best and though unfortunately we can't unsee the blackface the final number is spectacular.

    If you're talking about the Rex Ingram I thought it was a great film. I have to admit I can only fully enjoy silents in a theater. Video crushes them for me. It's like opera on TV. I can't stand it. And I like opera a lot. Does the Ingram exist in a state where bluray would benefit it?

    Take Me Out to the Ball Game Another musical title that not one person I can remember has mentioned on their wish list. Esther Williams in her autobio reams Kelly. She clearly detested him and Donen. Which is ironic considering that I believe in That's Entertainment ll Kelly introduces a...

    When I wrote that I objected to being taken advantage of I was joking. I was mocking my own willingness to repurchase a product if it were improved. It's like going from the Blu-ray of My Fair Lady to its 4K. I even wrote about going from the Twilight Time The Gangs All Here to the Eureka and...

    Hey don't say this. I bought it based on the bluray.com review. Haven't watched it yet but I don't want to know it's already obsolete and worthless and I have to buy a new version.

    My friend is a big fan of the novels of Sabatini(He also wrote Captain Blood and The Sea Hawk.) I wonder if the silent adheres more closely to the book.

    I am certainly up for Scaramouche and Ivanhoe. The production design of Scaramouche is especially spectacular. A friend of mine got to see the Ramon Navarro silent at the museum of modern art which I am so jealous of and he said the silent is much better.
