A Reel Treat!

What a delightful surprise! I have not seen this film for over 25 years. I remember it screened on some L.A. channel. It was a faded color print full of the usual commercial breaks etc. Now, Warner Archive has released an almost pristine version. Bright, crisp color and clear sound. Charles Laughton is a Hoot and really camps it up. Most of the songs are o.k. except something about a pine tree, that makes you want to fast forward quickly. Tried and true routines and the forever lovely Hillary Brooke. Here is the restored one sheet for all to enjoy.

Fully agree, John. Haven't seen this since the 1970's and very much enjoyed seeing it again from Warner Archive. Always nice to see A&C in color, too! Rick Greene
