Fueling the Letty Lynton Fire

When I was a youngster, I was always told not to play into rumors or start them. Oh hell, this one is too interesting to pass up. I'll leave it to you to decide whether to take it as total BS or bet your life on it.

Letty Lynton on DVD - it's a wish for many. I've caught myself daydreaming a few times of watching the re-release on the big screen in a cushy, new, stadium-seated movie theater.

There's a rumor swirling that Letty Lynton will be played on TCM in the future and if all goes well, be released on DVD in 2012 when the copyright expires (I'm not even sure if that's a correct copyright fact). For me, the weak spot in the rumor is the "play it on TCM and see if anyone complains about the copyright" part. You don't screw with laws, especially if you're a television network. I'll tell you this though, I'd be happy to chip in a few PayPal bucks for the attorney who wants to fight any copyright issues that'd come up.

A tip of the hat to Nadya for passing this tidbit along.

Oh wow, that would be a dream!!! I hope it's true, that somehow TCM gets some special permission or something, lol - I'd be content with just that, you know!
