VCI Entertainment heads to the hills on June 11 with a trio of film vault treasures (actually four films in all) making their way to DVD with a downhome, backwoods theme.
Way, way back in the 1960s the late Ferlin Husky was a top country singer with such hits as “Gone,” “Wings of a Dove” “Once” and “Just For You.”
He spun that success into a brief stint with the movies, turning out two musical comedies as the legendary crooner, “Woody Wetherby” — VCI has them both: The Las Vegas Hillbillys (1966, with Jayne Mansfield and Mamie Van Doren) and Hillbillys in a Haunted House (1967, with a cast that includes Basil Rathbone, Lon Chaney Jr. and John Carradine).
Rounding out the June 11 DVD release trio is the remastered double feature that toplines director Albert S. Rogell’s 1940 film adaptation of the Al Capp comic strip, Li’l Abner, with Jeff York (aka: Granville Owen) as Li’l Abner, Martha O'Driscoll as Daisy Mae and none other than the old Stone Face himself, Buster Keaton, as Lonesome Polecat.
This little moonshine comedy gem is teamed with director Edward F. Cline’s 1942 film adaptation of the “Barney Google and Snuffy Smith” comic strip, Private Snuffy Smith (Bud Duncan as Snuffy, with Edgar Kennedy as Sergeant Cooper).
All three SKUs in this promotion carry an SRP of just $9.98 each!
