A reader who saw last Saturday’s posting on W.W. and the Dixie Dancekings wrote with staggering promptitude to tell me that this charming little film can be ordered on videocassette from an on-line store called Hot Rod Memories that sells, among other things, movies suitable for viewing at drive-in theaters. Remember those? I do.
This seemed too good to be true, but the price was right ($19.95 plus shipping), so I paid a visit to www.hotrodmemories.com, placed my order, and the package, glory be, arrived this morning. It’s an off-the-air, under-the-counter dub of decent quality: Burt Reynolds’ bright red shirt blossoms a bit on the screen, but the picture is otherwise adequate and the sound is good enough.
To do likewise, go here.
