Booze News: PAPA'S DELICATE CONDITION Available on DVD!

>> Wednesday, April 2, 2008

Jackie Gleason's performance as Jack "Call Me Irresponsible" Griffith, the lovable, turn-of-the-century dipsomaniac/family man in Papa's Delicate Condition (1963) is finally available on DVD! The previously neglected picture is part of a package of titles that Paramount is licensing to distributor Legend Films, presumably because the studio didn't think that it could make any money by releasing the flicks directly. Unlike many small distributor releases, the Paramount titles licensed to Legend have all be mastered from the best available dup negatives, released in their original aspect ratios, and anamorphically enhanced.

Papa's Delicate Condition and the other Paramount titles are now available for order directly from Legend Films' Website, and they will be available in June and July for purchase through other outlets. They are priced at $14.95 plus $4.95 shipping/$2 shipping for each additional title. Payment is through PayPal.

A full list of titles (at least the initial wave) is provided below. Papa's Delicate Condition is the only alky-related movie on the list, but several of the titles will be of interest to film fanatics, including the excellent foreign romantic comedy Girl on the Bridge (1999).

I like to drink. I like to watch movies. I like to watch movies about drinking. I like to write about the movies I’ve watched, but only if I’ve had a drink first.
