The film is available in TCM's Universal Rarities boxed set.


So does that mean that the odds are high TCM will show it or low?    


I can see TCM not showing something until the purchase orders start to dry up.

An oddball comedy for an olympic year! It is unusual, however it falls into that mythical-toy-kingdom genre that was also the formula for "Duck Soup". Also; "Diplomaniacs" (1934 with Wheeler & Woosley) is in my opinon, the funniest of those! Hugh Herbert as the China Man! The supporting players are almost the same as "Duck Soup" (1933)!

I don't know if it's the funniest movie ever made but a friend of mine was in the hospital after an operation. We were visiting him and Million Dollar Legs came on TV. He made us turn it off because he wasn't allowed to laugh and the movie was killing him!

I think Pauline Kael called it the funniest movie ever made. I'd also like to see it again, although I think it's more interesting than funny.

[I|http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/83509/Million-Dollar-Legs/] read that Million Dollar Legs (1932) with W.C. Fields & Jack Oakie might be the funniest movie ever made and I've never seen it. Please add it to the TCM schedule.

P.S. also please fix the Suggest a Movie page.
