Two days ago saw MPI Home Video's release of Here's Lucy - Season 6 on DVD
, the final season of that show. One of our longtime readers, "Brandon," got his copy yesterday and sent us a scan of the marketing insert found inside the package. Below is a part of that scan (thanks!) showing that MPI is working on an upcoming general retail store release of The Return of the Beverly Hillbillies
(note that it's previously been available as an Amazon CreateSpace MOD title
). We checked with the studio, and today MPI replied with the info that this is in production for a 2013 wide release, and told us the following about the item:
The Return of The Beverly Hillbillies is the 1981 reunion TV movie starring original cast members Buddy Ebsen, Donna Douglas and Nancy Kulp as well as Werner Klemperer (Colonel Klink in Hogan's Heroes), Imogene Coca ("Your Show of Shows") as Granny's Maw and Heather Locklear with Ray Young assuming the role of Jethro. Also appearing are original series guest performers Charles Lane, King Donovan and Linda Kaye Henning. DVD includes new intro by Linda along with original cast commercials from the 1960s.
Finalized info, including pricing and a specific street date, are still to be decided upon. Stay tuned and we'll provide that to you as soon as we can!
