    The Wonderful World of Disney night is a great idea! While I was off work during the holidays, we watched the old TV shows that are on the "Your Host- Walt Disney" DVD set in the evenings. I'll hunt down a few more shows for Friday nights.

    To my understanding, please correct me if i'm wrong, Song of the South was never released on VHS/DVD, i'm not sure why but disney does so wierd things. I believe you can get the "sequal" So Dear to My heart, even tho its no where near as good as the first one

    Well, I did a search and..........We're both right.

    I found this
    Song of the south DVD - Walt Disney Classic movie on dvd

    "This is the Original 1946 Walt Disney Classic Song of the South on DVD, rare, hard to find and out of print! It is complete, uncut, uncensored, and digitally remastered, in English only, with no subtitles!"

    It would appear that it was never officially released on DVD or VHS, but was released on laser disc, then transfered to DVD. It doesn't look like Disney has anything to do with this however.

    I remember seeing Song of the South at an end of the year assembly in grade school! Man how times have changed. I know the VHS version was released in the UK and Europe. I know a few of them pop up on eBay every now and again. I may sink $15 into this and pick one up. No harm I guess is he takes Paypal.

    If you decide to try him out, let me know the outcome if you would.

    Went to Best Buy again last weekend and purchased "The Black Hole" which I'd nearly forgot. They also had a lot of the older Kurt Russel stuff.

    Was also impressed by the selection at Barnes & Noble

    Oh yeah................Barnes & Noble also had "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride" on DVD. Some of you may have known about this movie, but I'd never heard of it. It was a live action film and the cast includes several of the Monty Python crew. I didn't buy it (opted for the Disney Collectibles Guide Vol. 2 instead), but it looked interesting.

    We were at Best Buy a few weeks ago, and my dad rediscovered "Snowball Express" on DVD....he insisted on buying it, and we watched it, and it was actually a really good movie! It was funny!

    I finally saw the last 3 of the Disney live-action films I Tivo'd off TCM last December, the Herbie sequels. I'm not really a big fan of The Love Bug, but I watched these 3 films because Herbie is such a popular character from the post-Walt pre-Eisner era.

    I liked Herbie Rides Again a bit better than Love Bug. It doesn’t even feature a car race, but I guess I just like Ken Berry and Stephanie Powers together. And of all Keenan Wynn's performances as Alonzo Hawk I like this the best -- he gets louder and more over-the-top with age.

    Herbie Goes To Monte Carlo is the least of the 4 Herbie films for me. The idea of Herbie falling in love seems cute enough, plus there’s a funny supporting performance by someone named Xavier Saint Macary as an overeager inexperienced but sharp detective. But Dean Jones' character is watered down and the female driver/ love interest was a bit irritating. Plus, while Don Knotts’ sidekick was an OK replacement, I missed Buddy Hackett's eastern mystic mechanic from the first film.

    I don’t remember much of Herbie Goes Bananas from the first time I saw it in the theater as a kid so I did Tivo this one also. Again, no actual car race, but I liked it better than Love Bug, probably because I laughed a lot at Harvey Korman and Cloris Leachman. OK, I also have to admit I think Elyssa Davalos is so beautiful and quite natural as the bookish anthropology doctoral candidate I would watch it again just for her scenes. She was also the female lead in Apple Dumpling Gang Rides Again.

    I remember watching a lot of the old movies you mentioned when I was little, brought back a lot of good memories. Oh, and yeah, I agree with whoever said the youngest son on Swiss Family Robinson was a brat...anywho, one of my favorite live action movies from Disney is The North Avenue Irregulars. I had taped it from off of one of the movie channels years ago, a friend of mine borrowed it, fell in love with it, kept borrowing it, until I told her to keep it. Now that you guys have me reminiscing, I'm going to have to go to Amazon and see if it's out on DVD yet.

    We just recently watched Escape to Witch Mountain. The kids weren't really into it since it started kinda slow but once the Alien kids started using their powers they were glued. I think up on our "Wonderful World of Disney" Family night will be Blackbeard's Ghost.
    I just joined the Disney Movie Club and picked up The Black Hole, Robin Hood and The Great Mouse Detective, which is one of my favorites.

    I'm finally getting around to watching the movies I recorded during December. I watched "The Black Hole" this weekend. At first I was impressed with the wire work that went into making the actors move around the space craft in zero gravity, but it wasn't long before I started to see the "tug" on their costumes. Because it was put out about the same time as Star Wars, it rather got dwarfed by the Star War craze, but it was OK. I'm not a big sci-fie fan, so I sat through it to "widen my horizons". The robots reminded me of playskool characters

    I haven't looked very hard, but has anyone seen any of the True Life Adventures films on DVD?

    They were released a few years ago in four volumes. Amazon still has copies of volumes 2 and 3 for 24.99 but 1 and 4 are all gone except for new and used copies at higher prices.

    Re: Old Disney Movies You've Just Discovered

    Just saw Never Cry Wolf for the first time. Breathtaking cinematography, intriguing story, great performance by Charles Martin Smith where he's the only human onscreen for half the film. I will definitely be watching it again. One of the best of the post-Walt pre-Eisner era.
