Thank you for contacting Showtime about "Brothers" on DVD, I can see it left a big impression on them, since here it is over a year later, and still no sign of "Brothers" on DVD. It was a wonderfully funny series and groundbreaking in it's depiction of gay men. Not to mention one of the finest ensemble casts ever. I collected the entire series on Video tape and have watched them over and over. But the quality on the tapes is pretty awful, and pretty soon I won't have a VHS player anymore (Remember those?) It's never too late, so please, please release it on DVD, Showtime! I'm ready to relive the laughter over and over again. I also think it would be interesting to hear commentary from the Cast.
I just saw this film for the first time on TCM this week and was pleasantly surprised. I was attracted to it first because it was a musical and second for the mythical theme. The plot involves Terpsichore (Hayworth) and the muses coming to earth which made me think of the upcoming Broadway Musical version of the cult favorite "Xanadu". I had no idea going in that it is actually a sequel to one of my favorite films "Here Comes Mr. Jordan" which was remade as "Heaven Can Wait" in 1978 starring Warren Beatty and again in 2001 with Chris Rock. This latest version borrowed from this film and was titled "Down to Earth"! Look for James Gleason as Max Corkle and Edward Everett Horton as the fussy Messenger 7013, roles they created in the original film. By the way, there is another link to this film, the 1943 film "Heaven Can Wait" starring Gene Tierney and Don Ameche, but this film had nothing to do with "Here Comes Mr. Jordan."
