    Image Entertainment released a few Marx Brothers movies on DVD, but they seem to have all but disappeared. You can't buy them anywhere, except perhaps on eBay. Doesn't WB own the rights to most of the Marx Brothers films?

    Is Image planning a re-release or have they lost the rights?

    Thanks,

    Jack

    Universal Home Video owns the rights to the Marx Brothers' films that Image released on DVD. UHV licensed the films to Image for release on DVD but took back the rights when Image cut the MSRP below Universal's agreed MSRPs.

    Hopefully, Universal Home Video re-releases these on DVD.
