Good to finally get CAT AND THE CANARY and NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH on dvd. These, because of rights problems, were not in the initial rush of Hope films to be released to home video. They were on tv, briefly in the the 90s, but then disappeared, until they showed up, fairly recently, in an anthology of other films, which any Hope fan would have already purchased earlier, in a too expensive composite set. This time, those two, and another rarity, the pretty minor, unfunny, THANKS FOR THE MEMORY, showed up, mixed with a seven older, already released, titles, but at a most attractive price. Apparently, Universal is redistributing a lot of it classic comedy sets (WC FIELDS, the "ROAD' pictures) in different packaging, at far better prices. The two rare items are most enjoyable, while things like GHOST BREAKERS, MY FAVORITE BLONDE, CAUGHT IN THE DRAFT and THE PALEFACE still are fun. The other three are ok, too.
