    Hi All,

    Does anyone have any info who owns this film? Although I am only 30 years old, I grew up watching stuff like this on rainy Saturday afternoons. I think this is one of Danny Kayes best. Is there any news if this will ever be released? I see that there are a few other Danny Kaye titles out there.

    Thanks for the info,
    Scott

    It WAS put out buy HBO. It IS out of print!...

    Nevertheless, I picked up my copy at Borders a while back (within the past year, I don't recall the month). You may get lucky, too.
    Otherwise, it's either eBay city, baby ($75 for the last one auctioned off, and none right now), or Amazon has someone who'll sell it to you used for $125 [​IMG] , or else wait for some other studio to put it out. I believe it would be MGM, but don't quote me on that!

    MGM now owns it, AFAIK, just like they do with all of the old HBO catalog.
    It should be re-released before too long; it's a simple re-issue with new packaging after all.
    Maybe Walter (Kittel) has more info? [​IMG]

    The Samuel Goldwyn films are with MGM right now.

    I think it needs a new master since the current one is from Technicolor, but looks like it was oversaturated with orange!

    Any new news on this? I love this movie, but not enough to shell out $80+.

    I would also like to know about any new news on The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty. I am only 25 years old but I like this movie.

    I didn't know that it was on DVD but I will not shell out a lot of money for just one movie.

    MGM,
    please put The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty onto DVD.

    I have the HBO DVD. I didn't realize it was OOP. I don't see any on EBay right now, and somebody is offering a new one at Amazon for $133.

    I may have to watch it again, sell it, and wait for a rerelease.
