Just read that Peter Graves passed away this morning in LA. Apparently, had a heart attack after returning home from brunch with wife, children and grandchildren. Always thought that he and Doris made a good looking couple in "Ballad of Josie". RIP, Mr. Graves.

That's sad. He and Doris seemed very fond of one another.

He was fun to listen to last year on Doris's birthday call in and seemed to think a lot of Doris, but then who doesn't? Doris will probably make a statement, soon. I haven't seen "The Ballad of Josie" and have wanted to see it since I heard him speak of it last year, but it is not out on DVD is it? I am thrilled to see that "Julie " will be on TCM this month. That is another one that I have not seen. I wish TCM would make April, Doris month! What fun that would be!

Hi,
Ballad of Josie is out on DVD and has been for some time, my DVDis dated 2006.

No extras but is in the 2.35.1 ratio which is good.

I keep checking amazon.com and it doesn't seem to be available in USA format. It is frustrating how sporadically films are released onto DVD. And yet so many that are not worth the time or day are released on a daily basis???

Hi,

I have just checked Amazon.com (the US based Amazon) and you can buy multi region DVD players for around US $60.00, problem solved, If you don't want to buy a new machine read the bit below.

These days you don't have to buy a DVD in your own region, i.e. if your in the USA then it's region 1 and in the UK it's region 2. Nearly half my collection are region 1 DVDs and I live in a region 2 area.
Nearly all DVD players sold today will play any region, if they don't then in most cases all you need to do is to type a code in from your remote and your player becomes Region Free like most machines sold here in the UK.
To find out if your US based machine is multi region all you have to do is to Google it. Type in to the seach box the name and model number of your DVD player followed by the word 'hack' and in most cases you will find the simple code to type in. In some cases you may find that it's already multi region. In the USA you can buy off the shelf region free machines, you may have to go to a specialist DVD shop. Don't try this hack unless you are sure on what you are doing.

I am not a hacker; I will wait until it is released legally. Or wait patiently for them to play on TCM.

Changing your DVD Player to make it multi region is not illegal, as I said most machines are region free when you buy them these days. The word ‘hack’ is just a word; you could use the word 'mod' instead.
