Preston Sturges: Spectacular DVD Set

Preston_sturges_1I am a huge Preston Sturges fan, so I was thrilled to see this new box set from Universal Studios.

Preston Sturges – The Filmmaker Collection:

Sullivan’s Travels
The Lady Eve
The Palm Beach Story
Hail the Conquering Hero
The Great McGinty
Christmas in July
The Great Moment

Outstanding list — these are all Sturges classics, and they are wonderful. The Lady Eve is one of of my all time favorite comedies.

A few omissions from the set:

The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek
The Beautiful  Blond from Bashful Bend 

and two of my all time favorites,

Unfaithfully Yours
The Sin of Harold Diddlebook

This one goes straight to the wish list . .  .

    I can’t believe they left out “The Miracle of Morgan’s”

    Man that was a hauler!

    Sullivan’s travels” had Veronica Lake. The Foxiest chick in the history of Hollywood.

    Ditto on Veronica Lake — the closest hottie in my book is Lauren Bacall in “To Have and Have Not.”

    Do not confuse the Preston Sturges/Rex Harrison 1948 version of Unfaithfully Yours with the remake with Dudley Moore, hich is nowhere near as funny . . .
