    At last, Donna Reed Show to be released on DVD!!

    I'm not sure if they had one. If they did, it would have been the last show of the fifth season. But she did return for a few appearances, including in the 200th episode. Which made sense - she was away at college and would come home from time to time to visit. Much more logical than what they...

    At last, Donna Reed Show to be released on DVD!!

    I really, really love this quote from the press release: "In the 1960s, before we lived with computers and cable TV with over 200 channels of mostly junk, the Stone family showed what love, respect and support for one another looked like." I couldn't have said it better myself. Just this...

    If the show was so important to you people that you'll take it in any form, then why didn't you tape them or get someone to tape them for you from Nick at Nite? They ran the show complete for at least 5 years. Why would it be so important to have in now in 2008 in any form but it wasn't...

    Unknown as to where the ownership lies or if it's split amongst the two parties. Sometimes one party buys the other out down the road. I had spoken with Ann Sothern's daughter about the Ann Sothern Show, which she produced. She sold it off years ago to Metromedia which wound up being bought by...

    At last, Donna Reed Show to be released on DVD!!

    I won't. I have enough friends who recorded it off Nick at Nite when they ran it complete that I have no need for cut episodes from ANY source. That is except for the 100 or so episodes that were withdrawn from the syndication package. And I don't think those will come out before I'm ready to die.

    Here's the link: EMA to honor Donna Reed son Paul Petersen - 5/13/2008 - Video Business If this is indeed true it's a very interesting developement. I'm sure that quite a few of the bigger independents like MPI, Infinity and Image have tried to get ahold of this show over the years and...
