    The rights to Harold Lloyd's films have finally been untangled, and most of his features (and a number of shorts) are scheduled for DVD release next spring.
    Some details:

    Cool. Up till now, I've only seen bits and pieces of Lloyd's films. Looks like I'll be able to rectify that soon... [​IMG]

    Cool. I always liked his shorts better than his movies.

    Great, I've never seen anything from Harold Lloyd other than the usual clips.

    I don't want to put a damper on this, since I also want any Harold Lloyd film on DVD, but after reading the letter, I noticed that it does not make any mention of DVD specifically, only "home video."

    I hope that they are released on DVD...

    Although DVD wasn't mentioned specifically in this article, the process of clearing the rights to the Lloyd comedies has been going on for at least a couple of years--and DVDs are definitalely being planned.
