Great comedy from 1947. Bob Hope is a comedian at heart with Lon Chaney jr. and Peter Lorre playing their evil rolls.

Keep waiting for a better transfer!

"I love this movie. Bob Hope, Dorothy Lamour, Peter Lorre, Lon Chaney Jr... what more could you ask for! The version I watched 20 years ago on the late, late show was miles better than this horrible transfer. Since this movie (incredibly) got forgotten by the copyright office and ended up in the Public Domain, all you can find are cheap, HORRIBLE tansfers to DVD's like this god-awful loser. It's better you never even watch this film than to see it in this terribe representation. Why Hollywood wouldn't want to protect gems like these is beyond me, but since they don't give a flying leotard, don't you. This grainy, blurry, audibly incomprehensible, hardly watchable transfer is a complete loser. Don't waste your money. Keep waiting for the "restored version" which hopefully comes out before 2021. Cheers." "remastertered"

"My Favourite Brunette is a wonderful movie. It's problem is that because it is "public domain", anyone can release it, and hence we get lots of techincally terrible versions of a great film. The some studios even have the audacity to declare that they've released a remastered or enhanced version, which is an outright swindle as the release is stil CRAP! I'd love to name names but those of us who've dealt with this company know it's tricks! (I returned these two "enhanced/remastered" DVDs and got all my money back!)

But back to our film.....I'm hoping that Kino gets a little less snobby and gives this film the attention it deseves. If not, I'm sure Image Entertainment or the Roan Group could do good jobs. Finally, why not let Legend Films colorize it????? More young people would want to see this movie, and for the purist, Legend Films does a good job in B&W restoration, and has both versions in all of it's products. It would certainly be better than anything out there now!"
