evidently this is now available on DVD
31 July 2008 | by (Boise ID) – See all my reviews

released by Anthem Pictures on April 10th, 2007. I special ordered this for a lady, who was looking for the Johnny Crawford version and not the modern 2006 version. Although, why would you remake a picture that was not really successful in the first place? The knee jerk reaction to the name Hugh Hefner by some people is indicative of the state of our nation. When there is very little money and electricity, and not enough to eat, issues such as airbrushed pudenda will recede to their proper place in the scheme of things. Anyhow, enjoy the film while it lasts. Actually, if you want to use your time wisely, get the book. Even though the research is dated, the backward slide of the American culture and the dumbing down of the populace seems to reinforce the message of the book. Even though the evidence is still out on evolution, only a shaved ape would come to that conclusion.
