Warner Brothers has FINALLY released "Perfect Strangers" on DVD!!! (Think they may be reading our stuff over here??? if so...Thanks, cool WB folks!!! ...Now, not to push it, but..Hat Check Girl is sorely needed, y'all!!! :-) )
Here is the link:
...Keep in mind that these DVDs are 'bare bones' releases - just the movie, no extras or scene selections... but this is a big one, as far as Gingerologists go, since for whatever reason, this one has been a tough one to find... it might not be a very good movie, but, if Ginger is in it, I'm there!!!
And, for any of the newer folks on the site, please be aware there are other Ginger movies available in this WB archive series - 'Tom, Dick and Harry', 'Once Upon a Honeymoon', 'Weekend at the Waldorf', and 'Having a Wonderful Time'... plus mucho other old movies of interest...
...I'd say it was a good day! (dancing a hole into the floor...)
Jwalker - VKMfan - PG Giza... :-)
PS... Sorry, but as you probably guessed, this is a 'Region One' DVD ONLY... sad to say. Wish they would make it a 'Universal DVD' (Region zero, I believe)... Since these are somewhat 'limited' as to sales, I would just think there would not be much of an issue regarding piracy... would probably make more making it available to all against any loss from 'copying'... oh well, hope everyone can obtain this one in some manner!
It is my hope that I can continue to make 'G-ology' interesting and informative regarding the 'Beautiful Science' of VKM, which is SUCH a great topic!!! ...And remember, your comments are what make Gingerology click - so keep cranking them out!
Thanks again, JW
