    Gary Cooper jumped around a bit, lending his talents to various studios (Warner Bros., Paramount, Goldwyn, Fox), as well as the occasional indie.

    Classic Flix has given us two of those independent productions concurrently, with Along Came Jones and Casanova Brown, both for International Pictures, an entity with a short lifespan (2-3 years), which merged with Universal in July of 1946.

    Casanova Brown, written (again) and produced by Nunnally Johnson, again stars Gary Cooper in an comedic turn.

    That once again, works.

    This time teaming with Teresa Wright and Frank Morgan.

    For this production, Sam Wood directed, with John Seitz behind the camera.

    The Classic Flix release, is everything anyone might ask for, with no problems.

    For Cooper completists, and I'm one of them, these two releases move things forward nicely. With 16 Cooper films in 1940s, and none, thus far on Blu-ray, this is at least a beginning.

    Mr. Cooper remains woefully underrepresented in the format.

    "Good Sam" (1948) is on Blu-Ray, from Olive.

    You and me both! A personal favorite of mine so much so that I bought it in HD on iTunes. A terrific film in my humble opinion.
