Still Waiting!
25 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After another 5 years I'm still waiting for this tasty bit of film work to be released for those of us who really love this show. Does anyone know who controls the rights to this movie so that we can get it released? I have a copy recorded on VHS when it was broadcast but I would prefer a DVD copy that I can watch over and over again without major deterioration of the crazy antics of the great cast in one of the best "B" movies of all time.Ian McShane is a real joy (As in Lovejoy)which has now being finally released on DVD for those of us who really appreciate his work, and would love to see this gem as well.Perhaps someday,sigh!

Since my last of 2007, it has now been another 4 years, and still this little gem of a movie hasn't been released. Why? There's a great cast and a lot of quirky antics by this great cast to keep you coming back for repeated viewings. I have become a great fan of Ian McShane since I first saw him with Sean Connery as a Swedish Bank robber. This I feel was one of his greatest roles after his "Lovejoy" series. Does anyone know who has the rights for this lovely bit of film work that has been unavailable for 16 years, so that we could get it released? Anyone?
