looking for movie


Recommended Posts

Greetings! I come here today for help in locating a film that has ran on TCM a few times in the past "Marry the Girl." I've been searching for the movie for a long time but no luck. My interest in finding the film is because of Mary Boland. She was my grandmother's cousin and I'm very interested in seeing her films. I see Marry the Girl isn't available to buy so I thought to ask here to see if maybe someone could refer me to movie collectors or even be so kind to make a copy that I would gladly reimburse for the trouble. My email is imhappeningnow@aol.com

One of my favorite Mary Boland movies is Ruggles of Red Gap (1935), where she plays the part of Effie Floud. Unfortunately, it isn't available on DVD, but here's a photo from the film that shows her looking particularly elegant: http://www.allocine.co.uk/film/galerie_gen_cfilm=369&filtre=&cmediafichier=18409226.html.

It was released in 1992 on LaserDisc through MCA Universal Home Video. Since it didn't have any big-name stars (for a 1992 audience), it probably didn't sell well. I remember it was remaindered as a cut-out not long after it appeared on LaserDisc.

 

tcmprogrammer mentioned that TCM has acquired the rights to a package of early Paramount films. I hope it was included. It's one of Leo McCarey's best comedies, which is saying something when you consider he also directed Duck Soup (1933) and The Awful Truth (1937).

 

I haven't seen all of Mary Boland's films, but it would be her best role among the ones I have seen.

Yes, I remember that post from tcmprogrammer because Wings (1927) was among the early Paramount films to which they've acquired the rights (in 2007, I believe). That's another one I haven't seen, so I can't wait;-)
