Goofs

If the genie can place thoughts in peoples' minds, why could he not have placed the ideas in King Solomon's mind to allow him to marry the woman of his dreams and not to imprison him in the bottle in the first place? See more »

Universal- We want this Classic on DVD !!!
21 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

Please-If anyone from Universal Studios EVER frequents these boards; it's PAST time for this Tony Randall classic to be released on DVD. Tony Randall and Burl Ives are hilarious, and Barbara Eden sets the stage for her role in I dream of Jeannie. The 60's were a different time for movie studios, and this is indeed a family movie that everyone can enjoy and have fun laughing with. It's a true joy to see Tony Randall who was always a fine gifted actor. Why hasn't Universal ever released this on DVD is beyond me. Universal-you can release every other movie made for over 60 years, why not the Brass Bottle. And folks, write Universal asking them to release this movie from their vaults. Thanks
