vote for Where's Charley
14 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You can go to Turner Home Movies website and vote for movies you'd like to see released on DVD. They keep a list, and Where's Charley is on there. You can also suggest other movies if you don't see them on the list. They've got tons of old movies, and apparently lots of them haven't been re-released yet. It's really a shame that something as classic as Where's Charley isn't available to adoring fans. To vote for Where's Charley you can just go to http://www.tcm.com/suggestamovie/index/#suggestions and complete their "suggestion" box & tell them why you want it. They send the list out to DVD companies regularly, apparently. It's worth a shot. Maybe we'll all be watching it again next year!
