Four More Bob Movies Coming to DVD!!!

Warner Archive ( is including four Bob movies in their new releases for April: The First 100 Years (1938), Yellow Jack (1938), Haunted Honeymoon (1940), and Piccadilly Jim (1936).

Piccadilly Jim is my fave of the four ... Bob and Madge Evans with a great supporting cast including Frank Morgan, Eric Blore, Billie Burke and Robert Benchley ... what's not to like.  Keep an eye open for uncredited roles by Dennis Morgan, Dennis O'Keefe and Bess Flowers, the Queen of Hollywood Extras!

I really do appreciate Warner Archive releasing four more of Bob's movies, but ... someone really should figure out how to release Letty Lynton (1932) while there are still Bob and Joan Crawford fans around to appreciate it!!  And one could add Unfinished Business (1941) to the list as well!  (Dream a Little Dream ...)

(Life has been a bit of a bitch of late, our house got flooded out due to a failed plumbing housing.  My hard drive with its collection of all things Bob is currently in a rental "Pod" located in the driveway while we're in a motel room waiting for our insurance company to issue the much awaited check before repairs can begin!  Meanwhile, a special thanks to Debbie for stepping up, once again, with her excellent postings.)

That is excellent news! (The DVDs, not the flood). "Piccadilly Jim" is the best of the bunch and has been available digitally on VOD platforms like Vudu for quite awhile so I knew a DVD was forthcoming.

Now where's "Hide-Out"?

Bravo, WB!

Robert - Yes, Hide-Out would be great as well. Rather surprised that one has been overlooked. I hope it's not another legal entanglement! ("...not the flood." Finding humor in my predicament. Good one.)

And now another one! "Blondie of the Follies" to be released by Warner Archive April 19th.
