Thanks Matt for another sterling review. Somehow I've never gotten around to seeing this film. Last year my mother told me she saw this while she was pregnant with me, just before I was born. So now I have the opportunity to correct that lapse. Of course, I'll be watching it from a very unique perspective.

Another beautiful master from Warner Archive. Let’s hope that those PD thieves who prey on expensive studio re-masterings have a modicum of respect for those efforts. There’s nothing wrong with the concept of the public domain, but work such as this should not be considered fodder. There are enough old prints out there to satisfy those who post to Amazon and YouTube.

Always great catching up to Matt’s insightful, thoughtful and persuasive reviews. Mr. Hough remains a consistent guide and pleasure of reliability, while adding much to my BD library.

I’ll be adding this WAC release to my often watched copy of Father of the Bride.

Robert, there is no such thing as a PD thief - by definition. Public Domain means free to all.

Frankly, I consider copyright extension for existing work to every bit a much "PD thieves" as the ripping you mention. Only that was the studios that was preying off the Public.

In 15 years, every US movie up to Casablanca will be PD.

This discussion would definitely be worthy of its own thread.
