    This movie has been out on VHS, Laser Disc, and even Region 2 DVD. Why can't we get a Region 1 release of this American movie?

    Most all Janye Mansfield movies out are Public Domain and in terrible condition! She only did a couple big studio feature films and this is one of them. Heck, even "The Jayne Mansfield Story" has been postponed.

    What gives?

    There may be less traffic here in Studio Feedback, Eric. But it is the correct location for your post.

    I agree on this one. With its terrific and witty opening ribbing multi-channel sound and CinemaScope, it'd be a must on DVD.

    But, then any Frank Tashlin on DVD is a good thing.

    Wow, this is the first time I've heard someone mention Fox should do a Mansfield box set- what a great idea. Most of-possibly ALL of- her good films were made at Fox, and Mansfield WAS an iconic figure of the 1950's (meaning "figure" in the most literal sense of the word- my dad still can vividly recall the first time he saw Jayne on the screen in a bit part, displaying physical dimensions he'd only dreamed of observing till then).

    The three films AlanP suggests would be enough for me- add a documentary on Mansfield and some commentaries, and count me in!
