Just heard about INTERNES CAN’T TAKE MONEY. For those of you who don’t know, aside that this is a pre-50 Paramount film owned by Universal Television, this is the first in the long-running Dr. Kildare film series. Odd neither Warner Archive or Shout Select could not make a licensing deal with NBCUniversal for its inclusion in a possible Kildare movie set. As you all know, the remaining Kildare films were made by MGM, and thus are owned by Turner/WB.

What stores? There aren't any real video stores anymore. Most of our films are available at Barnes and Noble stores and a couple of other smaller chains, but rarely at the big box stores.
Amoeba records in Hollywood (California) carries all the Kino Lorber titles.

Every Kino Lorber Blu-Ray or DVD in my collection, and there are a lot of them, was bought at Videomatica in Vancouver, a real video store. Retail only, no rentals.

I have the DVD, but I'll bet this will look even better on Blu-ray. Great addition from Kino.

Very thrilled about Alice in Wonderland. Yep, I have that DVD, too, but I'll happily exchange for the Blu-ray. I first saw this as a kid broadcast on some UHF channel that had gotten a syndicated package of 1930s Paramount films, and it got played a lot. Despite all of the pantomime costumes and strangeness (I hadn't read Lewis Carroll's books at that point), I was mesmerized by the movie.

Darn. I guess right now you don’t have access to LEGEND (1985), unless it is either with Disney/20th or is leased out to another label.

Why LEGEND? It already has a perfectly good special edition Blu directly from Universal -- or is that OOP?

Re All Night Long: wasn't Barbra a last minute replacement (for whom? Raquel Welch? Debra Winger? Faye Dunaway? I've forgotten after all these years). It is a different kind of role for her, so that makes it interesting. She hadn't had second billing in a film ever until this one.

I believe Lisa Eichhorn, already cast and a few weeks into shooting, received the boot when Streisand's manager (married to the film's director) recommended replacing Eichhorn with Streisand.

I don't know if AMC or TCM ever aired this, but I remember seeing it years ago back in the 1970s on a Saturday morning on CBLT, the Toronto affiliate for CBC. This was back when they had dozens of 1930s and 40s films on.

Great news on Alice In Wonderland. I do know people have inquired about Skippy, however I am wondering if anyone knows the status of Tom Sawyer(1930) and Huckleberry Finn(1931). I am thinking Universal still holds the rights for these two rarely seen titles from Paramount. I would enjoy seeing a commercial release of both even if it's just DVD and not Blu Ray. Does anyone have any information on these? Thanks.
