  • 40 Pounds of Disneyland DVD News

    Universal is now releasing made-to-order DVD exclusives through Amazon (I wish Disney would do this), including "40 Pounds of Trouble" with Tony Curtis and Suzanne Pleshette - - featuring the awesome on location chase scene through 1960s Disneyland!

    [ame=http://www.amazon.com/40-Pounds-Trouble-Amazon-com-Exclusive/dp/B0033PSHAO/ref=pd_sim_d_4]Amazon.com: 40 Pounds of Trouble (Amazon.com Exclusive): Tony Curtis, Suzanne Pleshette, Phil Silvers, Claire Wilcox, Larry Storch, Mary Murphy, Kevin McCarthy, Edward Andrews, Marion Hargrove, Stan Margulies: Movies & TV[/ame]

    (In other Disney-related films, They also have "The Chalk Garden" with Hayley Mills!)

    odd that Universal is releasing it and not Disney. I was looking for that movie a year ago. Found what I wanted out of it on YouTube, though.

    Can't get enough of Tony Curtis!

      Awesome! That film has a great segment that feature's Nature's Wonderland. Pretty funny.

        It's a Universal movie - - they got permission from Walt to shoot at Disneyland -- and I believe that it was through this movie that Suzanne Pleshette came to Walt's attention.

          It was a Universal Pictures release, Disneyland was seemingly a paid location for the shoot. USH's tour didn't open until a couple of years later.

            What a great scene. They just don't make movies like that anymore. Thanks for the link Nautilus.

              Everytime I see that it's just so cool! That is some great "time capsule" footage of Disneyland!
              Love it!

                So was this a Universal Picture, or Disney?

                    Thanks for the news, mj, and the link, Naut. I'm extremely tempted to add this DVD to my Disney collection now!

                      I just rec'd a copy, we just watched the Disneyland part (maybe 20 minutes) last night. Fabulous! If you order it with something and get the free shipping it's a bargain at $15. Vintage Disneyland!!!
