Wow, memory rush! I LOVED those Richard Anobile books when I was a kid.
At the risk of wandering too far off topic, I have to say I loved those Richard Anobile books as a kid too. They seem peculiar now, but as a movie-crazy youngster in the days before home video they were great. As you can see here I still have my Why A Duck? hardcover. I think I had the W.C. Fields one too but if I still have it I can't lay hands on it. I also still have my hardcover of Anobile's Marx Brothers Scrapbook which is a different animal entirely but which I must have re-read at least 10 times as a youngster.
On the topic of Jekyll and Hyde, I'm still making do with my old 2004 DVD double-feature disc of the 1931 and 1941, but these reviews are really making me want to dedicate some disc budget to picking up the blu of at least the 1931 -- especially since I just grabbed Kino Lorber's blu-ray of the Barrymore silent in Kino's most recent sale. I've never seen the Barrymore -- maybe this Halloween.
