The Great Man

Anyone who hates dogs and children can't be all bad...
I was delighted to see that the Academy of Motion Pictures has an exhibition of WC Fields memorabilia. I reckon he seems long overdue for rehabilitation of his movies. I also heard a rumour of a release of a new DVD set, which includes at least one hard-to-find treasure, The Man on The Flying Trapeze! Although it looks as though the Pre-order only exists for people in the USA (doh!)
Anyway - sooner or later I may get The Old Fashioned Way, Man on the Flying Trapeze, You're Telling Me!, Poppy and Never Give a Sucker an Even Break - Whoopee!

Excellent! Thanks.

I'll keep an eye on it, in case I get a local release, but if they only release Zone 1 DVDs I'll contact you about getting one that I can (at least) watch on a computer.
