Hey Hollyweird! WHY ISN'T THIS CLASSIC ON DVD & TAPE!?!?!?!?
This is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen, and I can not, for the life of me, understand why it STILL isn't out on Tape or DVD. Its premise is hysterical and the acting is pure Academy Awards! Especially the old lady who sits by the Guillotine and cackles nothing but "Guillotine! Ha Ha Ha! Guillotine!" I swear; everyone in this film is GREAT! James Garner; Dick Van Dyke; Elke Sommer: Angie Dickinson; They're all hysterical, and the last 15 or 20 minutes of the film is is a total riot! PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE, Hollyweird Moguls, Get this one out to us!!!! With all the celluloid effluvia out nowadays, let's get this CLASSIC out as soon as possible!!!
