Agree with other users--put on DVD
19 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I agree with other users that it is a shame this is not available. One commenter suggests a double feature with another Korty film. I think that 'Crazy Quilt' would be great as a double bill with 'Silence', which probably even fewer have seen, and is also very moving. Korty's Emmy-winning documentary about the family with 17 or so children I remember well from TV in the 70s. I don't know whether that's available either, though. Very sensitive filmmaker, along the lines of Terence Davies (Distant Voices, Still Lives) and, to some degree, Patrick Keillor ('London','Robinson in Space'}.

I was actually surprised to see this many comments on it, and it makes me aware of how many films have never made it even to VHS and sometimes these are very important ones like 'I Can Get It for You Wholesale', one of Susan Hayward's best, which I only managed to get from someone's taping on eBay. Then a lot of times people tell me everything that was on VHS is on DVD now, but that's not so at all. Plenty of VHS tapes that went out-of-print never have been put on DVD and probably won't be.

Anyway, things like these 2 Korty films used to be made more frequently by alternative directors, and you still find some. But back in the day, things like 'Crazy Quilt' even got a fair amount of publicity, were reviewed in magazines like The New Yorker. By now, you might find a hidden write-up in the Village Voice, and a week-long showing at a place like Quad Cinema, but the audience for this kind of quiet film, never large, is much smaller still today.
