THE SIN OF HAROLD DIDDLEBOCK (1947)
and GOING PLACES: CARTOONLAND MYSTERIES (1936)
THE SIN OF HAROLD DIDDLEBOCK starring Harold Lloyd, Jimmy Conlin, Edgar Kennedy, Franklin Pangborn, Margaret Hamilton, Raymond Walburn, Lionel Stander, Rudy Valee and Frances Ramsden. Directed by Preston Sturges. This, Harold Lloyd's final starring feature, is built upon a brilliant idea. What would happen to Lloyd's college hero character from his 1925 classic "The Freshman" 20+ years in the future? The answer is, a lot! While down on his luck, Harold partakes of a mysterious cocktail that bears his name. While under its influence he encounters crazy characters, amasses a fortune in gambling winnings and buys a circus - none of which he can remember the following day! A very entertaining film with lots of laughs, a tremendous cast and a legendary director. It was later released in a terrible re-cut version called "Mad Wednesday".
GOING PLACES: CARTOONLAND MYSTERIES narrated by Lowell Thomas. This short film, number 18 in Universal's "Going Places" series, takes us behind the scenes at the Walter Lantz studio to see how an Oswald the Rabbit cartoon is made. There's plenty of fun seeing the artists and animators at work and learning how the sound track and sound effects are produced.

Of the three available versions (at the time of this review) on Amazon it would appear that the GoodTimes version may be the best.
I purchased the GoodTimes version, and while it starts out a little dirty and wobbly, it cleans up pretty good.
Other reviewers have taken the Alpha and Synergy releases to task and I have not seen them, but I have watched other releases by these companies so I have no doubt the other reviewers are correct in their assessments of those releases.
The beginning of the GoodTimes release states in a short preface that the best available elements were used for this disc, but that does not mean that these are the best elements in existence, but they might be. Maybe Criterion is interested in a release?

Harold Lloyd is priceless, and the bar scene with Edgar Kennedy is worth the purchase price!
