Blu-ray News #66: The Ghost And Mr. Chicken (1966).


Directed by Alan Rafkin
Starring Don Knotts, Joan Staley, Liam Redmond, Dick Sargent

It’s hard to believe The Ghost And Mr. Chicken (1966) has been with us for 50 years. I’ve loved it since I saw it at a kiddie matinee one summer.

The half-century anniversary of Don Knott’s first, and in my opinion best, starring feature will be marked by a Blu-ray release in October. No particulars on it just yet.

I can’t wait to see it in all its Technicolor, Techniscope, high-definition glory.

Up top, that’s Don Knotts and Joan Staley between takes on the Universal lot.

Thanks to Mr. Richard Vincent for the tip.

    Sorry to crash Mr Chicken’s party
    but I’m very excited that Olive Films are releasing
    RETURN OF DRACULA on Blu Ray in October.
    Paul Landres an expert of making something out of nothing
    puts everything he knows about low budget film-making
    into this $100,000 effort.
    This was a short lived foray into drive in fare from the
    Levy,Gardner,Laven outfit better know for much higher budgeted


  2. I’ll have a post on the might Mr. Landres’ The Vampire up soon. I’m a big fan of his late-50s output.
