VHS or DVD?


IMDB doesn't show this movie as being available on VHS or DVD, but it is listed in video on amazon.com and as a DVD on eBay. Does anyone have it in their collection in any format? Just curious...it's a favorite of my mother's and I was trying to secure a copy for Mother's Day.

the isbn for the 1987 Goodtime Video VHS tape is 1-55510-030-9. as of today, there IS a copy avail on ebay for 99 cents. sound quality on that version is TERRIBLE - full of hiss, snap crackle & pop. volume level goes way up and way down. looks like they didn't clean it up for release.

Million Dollar Legs was released by Universal Home Video.. and that one, filmed two years PRIOR to Wiggs... is excellent quality. must have cleaned it up for release.

Thanks so much! With that information I might be able to find an acceptable copy. The older I get the sadder I am that so many treasures have been lost.

its esp hard to find some of these wc fields oldies. turner classics doesnt seem to have them: Her Majesty Love, Follow the Boys, Song of the Open Road. some of these are on amazon, but they are so rare, they are usually $$$$$.

Universal, which owns most of these 1930s Paramount films, isn't aggressive like Warner in releasing old product to the public. As a result, this film is just being legitimately released on DVD-R and is now available on Amazon for $15.98.

Will this lead to the film eventually being shown on TCM? Who knows. Universal seems to make it hard for TCM to get broadcasting rights to its library as well.
