I don't really remember much about this movie except that as a child I really liked the quest for the blue rose.
When I went to rent from Netflix I discovered the versions they had were from 1924 and 1940 which are different story lines.
It was a movie that made the matinée circuit where kids could plunk down part of their own allowance and go see it on Saturday afternoon, so I expect a lot of us boomers went to see it when we were children.
The thing is this movie probably still has a pretty big demographic given the fact that many boomers have delayed having children, but MGM (which has the distribution rights) hasn't made a DVD out of it. They probably should.
