On 9/2, for an SRP of $14.98 each, Universal is bringing out these Don Knotts classics:

* How to Frame A Figg
* The Love God?
* The Ghost and Mr. Chicken
* The Reluctant Astronaut
* The Shakiest Gun in the West

The last two are definately listed as anamorphic widescreen, where the first three don't say one way or the other yet.


No other details are available yet, nor cover art.

Hopefully they'll all be anamorphic widescreen. I'd hate to have waited this long for Ghost and Mr Chicken and be slapped in the face with a P&S version. :frowning:

I presume at these price points that there won't be Don Knotts commentaries. :angry:

Universal's recent releases of classic westerns were at the same low price point. All were OAR with anamorphic widescreen when called for. And Winchester '73 even had a commentary (actually an "audio interview," but presented like a commentary) by Jimmy Stewart. That certainly bodes well for these releases.

Universal's site lists the Ghost and Mr. Chicken DVD as anamorphic widescreen (2.35:1).

I am hoping the The Love God? and How To Frame a Figg will be anamorphic widescreen (1.85:1?)
Interestingly enough, I beleive the Reluctant Astronaut was orginally intended for television but was released theatrically following the success of Mr. Chicken. I don't know know if it was framed with TV in mind but it would be a shame if we get an anamorphic widescreen release of that and not of TLG? and HTFAF. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for next to TGAMC, The Love God? is my favorite Don Knotts film.

Atta boy, Luther!!!

Any fan of THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW owes it to themselves to pick up THE GHOST AND MR. CHICKEN as it features many TAGS cast members and creative staff. Fun from beginning to end.

What? No How to Frame a Figg fans here? Truly one of Knotts' more undervalued efforts, with Joe Flynn, Elaine Joyce and Frank (various voices on The Simpsons) Welker, from a story by Knotts himself.

Oh yeah. I treasure my Percepto disc of Vic Mizzy movie and TV themes....especially the Ghost and Mr Chicken suite. Classic stuff!! He also scored the other four movies on this list, much to my surprise.

What an odd, understated way of describing the 600+ contributions of the Voice God of Hollywood! :eek:

At least mention Scooby-Doo, for chrissakes!

Woo-Hoo! This is great news! I hope the prints on these are wonderful. It would be great if they each had a Don Knotts commentary.

Great news! I'll start planning a double-feature movie party now! Ghost and Mr. Chicken with The Incredible Mr. Limpet! :D
