Rain or Shine Restored!

It was undoubtedly Frank Capra's involvement that led Sony to restore Rain or Shine starring Joe Cook, but the restoration is premiering at the Palace Theatre in Landing, NJ, a few miles from where Joe used to live along Lake Hoptacong. If any of you do manage to attend the September 15th screening, let me know.. and be sure to drop by the Lake Hoptacong Historical Museum while you're there. Its president, Martin Kane, informs me that they have an extensive Joe Cook collection that includes photos, home movies, and even the piano that visitors to Joe's home used to sign (autographs include Babe Ruth, Groucho and Chico, Ginger Rogers and hundreds more).

This is great. I have a poor VHS copy. Hope a DVD copy will be made.
