    Marty Feldman, Ann-Margret, Michael York, Trevor Howard, Peter Ustinov, James Earl Jones, Henry Gibson, Terry-Thomas...who could ask for anything more?...this title was one of the first MCA DiscoVision titles released, full of plenty of good chuckles...of course mine is now a mass of speckles...(i think it always was!!) But it would be wonderful to have a DVD of this movie...any chance MCA? maybe just for old time sake? Thanks

    MCA, might also consider the excellent 1939, William Wellman, Gary Cooper, version of "Beau Geste"

    I was thinking maybe a Double Set, but on reflection, I'm not too sure that Gary Cooper and Marty Feldman as a double act, would be such a good idea

    Isn't it about time to make another version of this? [​IMG]

    Perhaps a more saleable idea would be to double-feature Universal's two Marty Feldman outings, THE LAST REMAKE OF BEAU GESTE and IN GOD WE TRU$T. While not the funniest films ever made, they have always made me laugh and Marty Feldman has become criminally left behind in comedy history. The man was capable of much more than just YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN.
    For that matter, Fox, where is THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES' SMARTER BROTHER?
