I wonder what made Universal restore what is a rather obscure and forgotten film from their catalog. Does anyone have any details on the restoration process or how it was decided?

This works well for me since Have Rocket, Will Travel was the only thing I was particularly interested in on the Rare Treasures From The Columbia Pictures Vault set, so now I'll be able get Have Rocket, Will Travel on DVD by itself( I do have it on VHS, but would prefer to have it on DVD).It might be arguable, but the best thing on the Rare Treasures set is by-far the solo Shemp shorts. Have Rocket is typical for the Curly-Joe era, but there's some real goodies on that set. It's a shame they're not offering it as a separate release besides the MOD version you can buy because it's a must-see for fans.
All I've heard about so far are the two screenings mentioned above. But it's quite possible there could also be a screening at one of the UCLA Film Preservation Festivals and/or Cinecon some time in the future.I can see an airing on TCM in its future, but having gone to annual Stoogefests in my hometown growing up there's really nothing like seeing the boys on the big screen. I saw an original print of Nertsery Rhymes back in the late 90s at the same theater that held the yearly festivals and it was very memorable. With Hello, Pop! I can only imagine.
Other than the one at the Alex Theatre -- on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, in Glendale, CA -- which I previously posted about, I have no idea whether there will be any "West Coast screening(s)."I overlooked your post, but I guess it's something. I live closer to the Bay Area, so it'd be nice if it was up here.
Perhaps Universal needs to have their own MOD-DVD service or something. That would be perfect for "Myrt And Marge" as well as other titles. Can they be convinced?I'm actually surprised haven't jumped on to the MOD bandwagon. Sony is letting WB manufacture their stuff, so who knows.
Can I please borrow a copy, please??
Is this nice enough?
OK, first thing I gotta ask is does anyone know when volume 3 of the Bowery Boys is coming out? I have both volumes and I absolutely love what I've seen. I can't stress enough that all Shemp era fans MUST see the films Edward Bernds directed by these guys. Absolute mandatory viewing.Volume 2 hadn't come out that along ago. I wouldn't be surprised to see it in the Fall.
Even the non Bernds films are fun. The worst are entertaining and the best, like BLUES BUSTERS and MASTER MINDS, are classics. No sappy romantic couples, no unwanted musical numbers, just one hour plus no BS comedy with some of the earlier films having a pleasant b grade gangster/noir thing thrown in. Leo Gorcey, Huntz Hall, and Bernard Gorcey rule, and I have 10 films to go, but after that, I hope they at least have a release date announced for volume 3.
Christine McIntyre passed away 29 years ago today. So what better time than to revisit supporting player researcher Bill Cappello's search for her back in the 1970's?Thanks for linking to that article. I myself had always wondered if there was any information about her after she retired from acting and was shocked to actually see a photo of her from the 70s. I realize the article was written nearly 20 years ago but it was a great read.
While I have this title already, I just checked Amazon.com and you can get it new for $12 and used starting at $6. Doesn't appear to be out of print.People will have new copies they've never opened and used copies they own to sell. Amazon themselves are no longer selling it, and neither is any other major e-tailer. The disc is OOP, it's just not commanding sky-high prices.
