W.C. Fields silents coming to blu ray

I just recorded commentary for the W.C. Fields silent features IT'S THE OLD ARMY GAME and RUNNING WILD. They are beautifully restored and will be released on DVD and blu ray by Kino.

Cant wait to buy these. Did anyone happen to say why they didn't include So's Your Old Man?

Probably the same rights problem with the original material (Julian Street's short story Mr. Bisbee's Princess) that once plagued its 1934 sound remake, YOU'RE TELLING ME.
