Ball of Fire update

When I blogged about Ball of Fire back in February 2010, I concluded the post wiht a brief note that the movie is available on DVD. In fact, this is another one of those movies that got a DVD release years ago, but for which that DVD release (or multiple releases) is out of print. A look at TCM's schedule page doesn't have a "Buy DVD" icon next to Ball of Fire, and looking at the prices of the DVDs you can get on Amazon, those are shockingly high. But then, Ball of Fire was produced by the Goldwyn Company and released by RKO. IMDb lists multiple companies as having released the DVDs at different times, which makes me think that whoever owns the rights now only leased the rights to the DVD producers.

Ball of Fire really needs a new DVD release, I think.
