    I needs restoration.

    TCM's print is great, but it has a few tears and specks throughout.

    Too bad WB didn't release it this year...June 6th was its 60th anniv. I guess 2003 would be ok, since that would be the Sweedish anniv date.

    I just finished watching my LD version of it. I did notice the tears and specks throughout that you mention. I agree that it was a shame WB could not have released it on the film's 60th anniversary. Here's hoping we see it soon! Boy, Cagney was fabulous in it![​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    In the meantime, enjoy Rhino's new, just released, fabulous Soundtrack CD.
    It contains outakes and rehearsal tracks.

    This is my most wanted musical. C'mon Warner, and how about a Cagney box set while you're at it. Footlight Parade and the gangster pics.
