Apparently, either because the original copyright expired and was not renewed, or because the film was never copyrighted in the first place (it's not listed in the Catalog of Copyright Entries), Life with Father's status as a public domain feature resulted in its finding its way into countless VHS and DVD inventories whose dealers do not usually handle copyrighted material, and who rarely have access to original negatives and prints, and these seriously inferior copies have now saturated the market.

I guess the minister is coming to baptize father so he won't have to go to hell.
He can't be baptized in a house. You gotta have water.
We have lots of water.
Not the right kind!

I have been a tremendous fan of this movie for many years. I discovered the movie version after I had seen a local stage production and it was an excellent transfer of the play to the screen. Until recently I had only seen it on TV first in black and white years ago and then in color on TCM. I like it so well I bought two of the DVD versions (I won't mention which) and as other reviewers have said they were horrible with washed out color, grainy images and sound that was not synchronized and barely understandable. I guess this is all you can reasonably expect for a movie that has some how slipped into the public domain and for which there is not much demand. However, while searching on Amazon I discovered a review for a new digitally remastered DVD that supposedly fixed all those problems. I ordered a copy and the review was correct. There is now an excellent DVD available from DigiComTV BarCode # 885444062681.
