Let's get The Diamond Horseshoe released for purchase!!
31 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have loved this movie since the first time I saw it on TCM years ago. I love classic movies and when I found out that this one isn't even available on VHS I was heartbroken. I can never seem to catch it on television anymore and I as such haven't seen it in years. Also, I love sharing my favorites with friends and family, but am not able to do so with this one. I desperately want it in my collection. If you're as much a fan of this movie as I am, please go to the following websites and put in your request to have it released for purchase. Hopefully, fans of the movie will eventually be able to have it in their collection!

E-mail Universal Studios and request that it be released.
