    "Making Love" ??!!

    Now that's one movie I thought would never see the DVD light of day. A mediocre film at best, it was, however, one of the first Hollywood films to deal openly and honestly with homosexuality. Not to mention, it practically killed Harry Hamlin's career (I believe it did kill Michael Ontkean's career).

    PIN UP GIRL is hardly Betty Grable's finest hour; there are so many others that are better!

    Pin Up Girl may not be the best Grable picute, but since this seems to be the first wave of a batch of Classic Fox musicals, (3 titles on the same date), Fox might be releasing other Grable's in May.
    And then sure we will see Down Argentine Way, Moon Over Miami, Tin Pan Alley...

    that was my second reaction (the first being "cool! finally a Betty Grable title..." [​IMG]

    now if i (and others) pass on a second tier BG title, does that mean Fox will squash plans to relesase the better ones?
    shame they couldn't just kick it off with DAW or MOM.

    hell, why not just kick out a 4 or 5 disc boxset?

    They probably selected PIN-UP GIRL because of the title identification with Grable herself. It's undistinguished (Whatever happened to John Harvey, her leading man and who cares?) It would be nice if they did a Grable-Dan Dailey boxset (MOTHER WORE TIGHTS, WHEN MY BABY SMILES AT ME -- Dailey was nominated for a Best Actor Oscar--MY BLUE HEAVEN, and CALL ME MISTER). Hope Sony gets around to releasing the CinemaScopic THREE FOR THE SHOW with Gable and Jack Lemmon!

    I have all of Betty's Fox musicals on vidtape except When My Baby Smile at Me which I have been looking for for years.

    How about "Hello Frisco Hello" which includes the song "You'll Never Know" or "Springtime In the Rockies"
