    Does anyone else want this great Technicolor MGM musical on DVD? The music is great and it has great performances by Lucille Ball, June Allyson and Nancy Walker!

    Brandon, I second your nomination of Best Foot Forward. The problem that Warner has is that they have so many titles and they are releasing about 6 or 7 new classics each month. I've heard they have close to 6000 titles in their catalog so we might have to wait for Best Foot Forward.

    The soundtrack showed up on Rhino this past year many tracks in stereo and with a prescreen overture and exit music!! p;us a couple numbers cut from the film. I don't know if these numbers exist on film too but it would be great to see.

    Brandon...I also vote in favor for this movie.

    What are the chances they'll give this movie the Ultra-Resolution treatment and put it in stereo?

    Pretty slim, but the sequences in That's Entertainment 3 look so ravishing that I would love to see it!

    The CD of BEST FOOT FORWARD is fabulous and the Laserdisc, while not upto the best DVD quality, is still quite nice and is good value, as it is coupled with DUBARRY WAS A LADY, which is also available on a great Rhino CD.

    I'm really praying for MGM's SUMMER HOLIDAY.
    But in the meantime I'll have to do with an ordinary looking Laserdisc and a wonderful Rhino CD full of deleted musical numbers.

    Since that last post I saw a better print of this film on Turner Classic Movies. It might be a candidate for DVD. Keep your fingers crossed.

    I would love to have a joint commentary with June Allyson and Gloria DeHaven. It would be a real treat to hear from these two ladies who are still very much alive.
