    I'm wondering if "The Paleface" is a typo error, as it is already in release.

    Hopefully it might be "Son of Paleface"
    This title is in public domain.
    All previous video releases of it have come from poor quality duped prints, so a nice transfer by Universal from Studio sources would be more than welcome.

    Son Of Paleface is not in public domain but the rights are held by Pearson Television. The recent Brentwood release of the two Bob Hope collections in fact are all under license from Pearson televsion and include Hope titles like Paris Holiday, Seven Little Foys, How To Commit Marriage, Private Navy Of Sgt. O'Farrell as well as Son Of Paleface.
    Far from looking like a poor quality dupe, Son Of Paleface looks clean, sharp and in vibrant Technicolor. Check it out. You'll be pleasantly surprised.
    Still, I wonder why re-issue The Paleface when one of Hope's funniest, The Cat And The Canary has yet to make it DVD.

    I'm confused too. (Ditto on Paleface). I'd like two of those, but of course, they're in different sets. Don't they normally release them separately first?
