Among the great Hollywood directors, I think Frank Tashlin may be one of the most neglected on DVD. One of his first and best, Son of Paleface, is on a surprisingly good-looking PD transfer from Brentwood Communications, and one of his last and worst, The Private Navy of Sgt. O'Farrell, is also available from the same source. Also, two of his Jerry Lewis movies were just released, though they're not among his best (Disorderly Orderly and Cinderfella), and if Chris Lewis succeeds in doing a Martin/Lewis collection next year, we'll get Tashlin's two totally-insane Martin and Lewis movies, Artists and Models and Hollywood or Bust. Also, the new Looney Tunes Golden Collection will include one Tashlin cartoon, albeit not one of his best (the cartoon "Have You Got Any Castles"). But as things stand, except for Son of Paleface, there's just not enough available of one of the most unique and original comedy directors, who influenced everyone from Jerry Lewis to Jean-Luc Godard. Fox owns four of Tashlin's films (his masterpieces The Girl Can't Help It and Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter, and the underrated The Lieutenant Wore Skirts and Bachelor Flat), and Paramount owns most of the others, and of course WB owns most of his cartoons. With Fox sometimes lending things to Criterion, what I'd really love to see would be a Criterion special edition of one of his Fox movies, the kind that would have tributes to Tashlin and a real explanation of his style. I heard a rumor some time ago that Rock Hunter might be one of the Fox titles Criterion would do, but I guess that was a false rumor. Any other Tashlin favorites that I've forgotten to mention? I just thought of another good one, "Susan Slept Here" (a May-December romance film in rather poor taste), but I don't remember who owns it now.
