    With all of these long overdue wonderful Hal Roach series releases finally happening, I clearly picked the wrong Year (Though necessary!) for my video purchasing moratorium! :(

    My Christmas wish list has just expanded yet again! :D

    CHEERS! :)

    It was a wonderful day when Hallmark lost control of the Roach library! To this day, I refuse to purchase Hallmark products because of the company's shameful treatment of the Hal Roach films. To say the least, this is a definite purchase for me.

    Clearly they were motivated to release these due to the Todd/Kelly shorts coming out.

    The Roach library video rights are scattered between how many companies now? Three?

    Wonder who has the rights other shorts series such as "The Boyfriends" and "The Taxi Boys". And for that matter, the streamliners/streamliners compilations.

    They have been around for decades dealing in both theatrical and non-theatrical film distribution including reissues and library titles, and have been in video for some time now.
