Gotta admit, though ... Joan Crawford WAS right.
Wire hangers are the work of the devil.

Heck! When you feel lazy just pile all your cloths in the corner. No hangers of any kind.

I'm afraid I'm off topic here ;-) , but I just got a note from Amazon that the release date has been postphoned again. Until June, I think. I don't mind since I already have a copy of it, (I just thought i should buy it as well). I don't understand why they don't want people to buy it... :roll:

I am looking at the DVD now. They have made some changes after the relatives complained.
Like he leaves his first wife before starting a relationship with the second. And some other things have been moved around/cut as well. He isn't laughing about Brambell's scandal when he reads about it in the news paper in this new one either. So Harry Corbett comes off as slightly more sympathetic in this new one. It's still great, so it doesn't really matter. :D
