Just saw this on TCM this week and enjoyed it. It seems the studios largely ignore older movies in favor of new releases they can sell in large quantities. Like, the big screen, older viewers are not profitable enough and do not go to movies often enough. There are many great older titles out there that are very hard to find on video/dvd if at all. For example, watched "The Facts of Life" on TCM last night with Bob Hope and Lucille Ball, and enjoyed the chemistry between them. Of course, it is not available on DVD either. So, it seems our best hope of watching and keeping many of these older movies is TCM, Turner Classic Movies, or AMC, American Classic Movies, both on Direct TV. TCM is a great channel as they show the movies without commericals like AMC, and in widescreen.
You can always vote for it to be released on DVD at the TCM website. It'll probably take forever, but it's something. I taped off Superchannel quite a while back, but I accidently taped over the first ten minutes - drat!
Only 216 voted for the movie to be released on dvd. How pitty that many people don't know about this movie.
