: : : Anyways, I'd really like to see the movie "Buck Benny Rides Again" after hearing so many references to it on different radio programs. Does anyone know where I can find a copy? Oh - and I'm in Canada. So this might make it harder to find, or at least more expensive! Thanks a lot!
: : It's a good movie, worth looking for it. Probably the best direct transfer of a radio show to the movie screen. Try contacting people on our Tape Trading List (look under Programs here on the site).

: Yes Laura, it's really a wonderful transfer of Jack's radio show...in fact, the whole radio cast (except for Mary) shows up in this one...even Andy Devine!
: The opening titles are GREAT...It shows Don Wilson standing at a microphone actually ANNOUNCING the film's title and cast members...with Jack standing next to him, wearing cowboy garb and striking a "brave and noble cowboy" pose!
: As Jack would say, "Hmmmm..."...Maybe we SHOULD start bugging MCA/Universal to commercially release those Benny Paramounts...There's lots of good stuff there!
