    I'd have to check, but I believe an uncropped LAZY DAYS (1929) has been released through LEGEND FILMS. However, what I'm unsure about is whether the original Hal Roach title cards are used, or if it derives from one of the early 1950s renamed/retitled theatrical reissues, as are at least some of The Little Rascals Legend Films DVD releases.

    CHEERS! :)

    Do you mean this one?
    the_pinch_singer__title_card_.

    I assume that you might have the initial 2008 THE LITTLE RASCALS COMPLETE COLLECTION DVD set, in which 16 of the shorts had the Blackhawk Films replacement title cards including, I believe, the one above. This was rectified on the subsequent reissued DVDs, at first just on the individual Volumes 1 to 7 back in 2011, and more recently, on the complete DVD sets themselves.

    The previously issued CABIN FEVER releases featured the original titles, as well.

    CHEERS! :)

    Indeed it has original titles, but with no lion and "Good Old Days" dubbed in. But I haven't personally done an A/B comparison to see how the cropping is.

    Otherwise, most of the shorts on the Legend DVDs have reissue titles (or reconstructions of same) except for the four shorts which are actually public domain (without having to use a reissue print without a valid copyright notice). Some of the silents have original titles as well.
