Trivia

No Longer Lost
12 February 2015 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

For years only the Vitaphone discs were available for this film, but according to the new book The Dawn of Technicolor, a black and white print is extant. This is yet another encouraging recent example of previously missing movies resurfacing, even if not always in their original form. Any fans of Joe E. Brown and Winnie Lightner should be thrilled by this news, particularly since Lightner's film career was relatively short. Originally a Broadway show starring Bert Lahr, this adaptation is a prime showcase for Brown and Lightner, and it was a big success at a time when interest in musicals were waning Hopefully HOLD EVERYTHING will be made available on DVD before long!
