Re: Dr. Kildare on DVD

It's a fair question! My guess, after much thought, is this --

MGM, which owned the movie rights to the 40's series starring Lew Ayres and Lionel Barrymore, licensed the rights for tv. But, get this, it was never even syndicated (packaged for local stations to run out of prime time), which is surprising because that's where the real money was in those days! So, MGM must not have allowed the license to go past network prime time -- no syndication, and no home video, or DVD. At this point, as a black and white series and out of date, they probably think there's no market. But there's always a market for quality dramas of the past.

Anyway, write to MGM care of Culver City, CA. Let us know what you find out.

Interesting that it was not syndicated "officially." I was too young to watch the original run, but I watched a lot of episodes on a local station in the late 60's-early '70's. I wonder how they pulled this off without some sort of penalty.

Re: Dr. Kildare on DVD

As a matter of fact, there is a huge demand for classic TV series from the 50's and 60's that the Baby Boomer generation (over here as well as in Germany!) loved to watch and would like to get on DVD!
I'm still waiting for my favorite TV series being released on DVD like "Yancy Derringer", "Kentucky Jones", "A Man called Shenandoah", "Hank", "Adventures of the Seaspray", "The Magic Boomerang", "Riptide"and many others.

Every new TV series gets it DVD release, but the real good stuff gets ignored. It's awful!

Probably the television production companies don't believe that there is much money in a DVD release and all the Baby Boomers can do is try to get them at ioffer dot com.

Re: Dr. Kildare on DVD

Try TVondvdplanet.com. They have just about everything,

Re: Dr. Kildare on DVD

dvdplanet does not have it. The best place to find it is to to go ioffer.com and put in Dr. Kildare in the search window under the classification television and movies. There are 3 or 4 people selling the dvds. I can't say what quality they are.
