Bob Wills 1944 Vitaphone Short

PostThu Aug 25, 2011 9:08 am

Saw the Vita short Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys the other day, having TiVo'ed it and letting it sit on the server forever, as usual. Someone asked a question about it for which I do not have an answer; has this short been anthologized on DVD somewhere?

I think it is the one on disc 6 of this collection:

The same short is on the 2 disc STILL SWINGING 100th Anniversary tribute DVD to Bob Wills. The short though is not restored and of poor quality but there are a lot of other old rare Bob Wills clips on this set. A must for Bob Wills fans. The BIG BANDS, JAZZ & SWING version is far superior in quality.
