    I ain’t pretty now so at least the drop off won’t be too severe!

    Don't believe it. You get to make "new" friends every day!

    Edit: Almost forgot this was the Kino thread - So I should add that Paleface is a welcome addition. Many new items and waiting in anticipation for the next shoe(s) to drop.

    I prefer 'Paleface' to 'Son of Paleface' if only for the glorious version of 'Buttons and Bows'.

    Since this film was a Warners release, I assume Universal got the rights to this when they did their Tom Hanks Dragnet movie in 1987.

    I hope it’s in the correct aspect ratio! The 2010 DVD nor the HD Digital on iTunes are in the correct aspect ratio.

    Universal could have obtained the rights back when Jack Webb revised the series in the late 60's, since it was produced at Universal Studios.

    When this Universal deal was first announced, Dragnet was one of the first films I thought of and hoped would be included. So this is excellent news.

    Now if only someone would release the entire 50s Dragnet TV series. But for now, I'm happy we're at least getting the film...hopefully in the correct aspect ratio.

    Here is the trailer for the 1954 Dragnet. Find out how much Joe Friday made in the 1950's.

    Anytime Jack Webb promoted the movie on the Dragnet radio and tv episodes he always said “It’s in color and widescreen.”

    Jack Webb Johnny Carson Dragnet parody from the Tonight Show. Starts at about the 2:30 mark.

    Speaking of Warners & Universal releases, I am wondering why the Kino blu ray of 4-D Man(1959) with Robert Lansing shows the Warner logo at the beginning instead of the Universal-International logo. Not a huge deal because the picture and sound are so much better than the Image DVD, but I am wondering if the title changed ownership and that is why the original studio logo is missing.

    In case you may ask how a Warner Bros. movie ends up with Kino, let me explain...DRAGNET was originally a co-production with WB and Jack Webb’s company, Mark VII. But when Jack Webb moved his base to Universal, he took the movie with him, so although his estate owns the original series, Universal now owns this film and renewed its copyright.

    Anyway, glad to hear the original movie is coming on Blu Ray!

    a pretty shoddy door in that trailer. Wouldn't be very soundproof. Despite that, I'm looking forward to the release. While I wait, I'll pluck out my old 78 and listen to the ineffable Stan Freberg do 'Dragonet'.

    Wow! Stan Freeberg. That's not a name one hears very often these days.
