On Our Selection (1932)

  1. Will the DAd and Dave films ever be available for general release on DVD similar to "The Sentimental Bloke". I could not think of a more entertaining box set than the Dad and Dave movies all remastered.

    Regards

  3. I long for the same. I have one I made a DVD on which was the one called Dad & Dave Come to Town with an alternate title. A little choppy, the copy is otherwise enjoyable and fun. I did have information that all Cinesounds(not just Dad& Dave) lack original elements and existing footage came from returns from UK which had edits for double bills in the cinemas. That may not be true. But when I first saw On Our Selection it was very choppy and poor but seeing it many years later the copy was exceedingly better quality.

    Your idea is a good one and one I would like to see happen along with other Australian films(and shorts) from the period which are known to be extant.
