    Hi Guys,
    I'm from the UK and coming to Florida on holiday in October.
    Are there any good movie stores in Orlando-I was in Orlando last year and the only movie stores I could find where the Virgin Megastore in Downtown Disney and 1 in the Florida Mall,Are there any more?,I will be driving so Getting around would be no problem.
    I'm searching for two of my all time favourite Bob Hope movies.
    The cat and the canary and the ghost breakers.
    Trying to find these classics is like tying to find a needle in a haystack.
    BBC2 screened the Cat and the Canary a few months back now,I taped it but would love to own the original.
    Same is with W.C. Fields,No luck here in the UK in finding anything by W.C.
    Any help in locating any of the above would be greatly appreciated.
    Best Regards Rob

    It's understandable that you can't find a region 1 copy of The Cat and the Canary (1939) or Ghost Breakers (1940), both starring Bob Hope, because they aren't on dvd. As for W.C. Fields, Criterion has two excellent dvds, The Bank Dick and Six Short Films. Stay far away from any Madacy dvds. Where to find these in Orlando, I can't say because I live in Minnesota.
    They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!
    They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa To the funny farm. Where life is beautiful all the time and I'll be happy to see those nice young men in their clean white coats and they're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!!!!
