I found this news snippet on www.prestonsturges.com
This may be true, but it won't be Paramount preparing the release. Universal owns all the Paramount titles pre-1949 and would be responsible for any DVD release. They may be considering another arrangement with Criterion as they did on The Lady Eve and Sullivan's Travels.
Paramount retained the rights to Miracle of Morgan's Creek after selling their library so it is indeed one of their titles (I own the Paramount laser). I wish Paramount still had the rights to their pre-1950 films as they are doing a great job in releasing their classic films on DVD (a lot better than Universal is).
Great news. Make way for ratzy watzy!!!
This film is screamingly funny. It is amazing how it walks the Hayes office censorship tightrope so deftly. It is my favorite Preston Sturges film, and one of my all time favorite comedies. I have a dim recollection that Paramount may have retained the rights to this film since it was connected to its (somewhat loose) remake as Frank Tashlin's Jerry Lewis vehicle "Rock-a-bye Baby" from 1958.
...and wasn't that Ratskiwatski?
Awesome news. Haven't seen this one yet but the little clips from the Preston Sturges: Rise and Fall of an American Dreamer doc looked good.
We also really need releases of The Great McGinity, The Palm Beach Story, and Hail The Conquering Hero
Not to mention Mad Wednesday & Unfaithfully Yours. Actually Mad Wednesday is out in R2 -- can anyone comment on the transfer?
I think that Preston Sturges is one of the five greatest filmmakers ever.
Good news indeed! Why we're on the topic of early comedies, does anyone have the Image release of Frank Capra's Lady for a Day? If so, how is the presentation? Just curious as I'd like to pick it up. Thanks in advance!
