This review is from: 77 Sunset Strip (DVD)
I, too, am wondering why this show has not seen a dvd release when such questionable "classic" tv stuff as "Hogan's Heroes" does get the disc treatment. I caught up with this show a year or so ago when one of our local tv channels started playing it and I thought it just sparkled with wit, fine writing and good stories. Not to mention delightful performances by all the cast.
Yes, the folks in their 50s and 60s would most certainly like to see it again - but so would us younger squirts who can recognize quality when we see it. This show is miles ahead of the rubbish being produced today and I for one would be delighted to see a proper dvd release. And since several of the show's stars are still thankfully with us they could be interviewed for a dvd set.
I encourage Warner Brothers, which has announced a feature remake of 77 SUNSET STRIP(God help us), to spend their money better by striking new 35mm prints of the show and using them for dvd masters.
This is an excellent show which well deserves a proper revival.
