Why is this not on DVD?
27 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Granted, "Have Rocket, Will Travel" isn't the Stooges' best work--it's not even their best feature with Joe DeRita (I'd vote for either "Around the World in a Daze" or "The Outlaws Is Coming"). Nevertheless, it's pleasant and has some good moments. Strangely, it's just about the only Stooge film that's not on DVD as of December 2010. I have the VHS release, which looks fine, so decent source material exists and I wouldn't think there would be a rights issue. Maybe Columbia-TriStar is withholding it so that we'll buy it in a box set of the complete Stooges Columbia features (and buy all of the other features, which are on DVD, all over again!). Certainly, now that they've done a spectacular job with all of the shorts in chronological multi- disc volumes, a box set of the other Columbia Stooges films would be a logical release. Anyway, I hope this makes it to DVD soon.
