Do you all remember when AMC used to actually show movie classics (commercial free, too!). I used to love that station. They also had a monthly magazine a lot like Now Playing. It's too bad that station changed. It would be great to have two channels running the classics.

Not to be too blunt, but AMC really wet the bed, didn't they? Used to get some great commercial-free stuff over there before they screwed up the channel.

Yep! They ruined that station. That was the first channel where I saw many L&H films. One year, it was one a Sunday, they had a marathon and I saw Sons of the Desert for the first time. They used to have great presenters, too, and film intros in great old movie palaces. Now, they run some crappy pictures and they are full of commercials. I never watch it.

Forgot to mention (at least I think I forgot, if this is a repeat post I apologize) that I picked up My Man Godfrey on DVD. I know there are some bad prints out there, but this dvd is part of Universal's centennial celebration. I am ashamed to say I have not seen the film yet. But, I've never seen a Powell movie I did not like! I also picked up Hitchcock's Notorious.

I was excited to learn that Safety Last will be released on DVD and Blu-ray through the Criterion Collection! Criterion puts a lot of care into their releases, and I've heard this pring, and the musical score, looks and sounds great. It also has, included, the documentary that MerryCarey mentioned once on the forums entitled, "Harold Lloyd: The Third Genius." It has some other features, and three Lloyd short films. It's coming in June and I can't wait. Here's a link if anyone is interested:

Looks like a great release. A Carl Davis score---love his silent movie scores! "The Third Genius"---produced by Brownlow and Gill, very good. Rich Correll, one of the commentators, was a friend of Lloyd's; he helped to archive Lloyd's personal film collection and, incidentally, was the son of Charles Correll, of "Amos 'n' Andy" (radio) fame. Criterion does good work.

Just realized my typo in my post (pring=print).

I'm looking forward to this release very much! I've heard Brownlow on the Commentary Track podcast and really enjoyed the conversation. Have you ever met him?

No, I'm just familiar with some of his documentaries. He's also an extra on a DVD we have, I forget which one, talking about discovering lost footage and about film preservation.

I have a question that MerryCarey or Mr. may know. I'm listening to the audiobook of Jerry Lewis' book about him and Dean Martin. Anyway, he references some other old comedy teams and I want to see some of them. One of the teams is Smith and Dale. Do you know if any of their footage is on DVD or available commercially? I've read about them, and I would love to see them! I'm searching the web for any of their stuff, but thought you and Mr. may know more. Thanks!
