If you're close to a satellite or cable channel, get on TCM right now. They're running King Vidor's Marion Davies starring "Show People". The pictures are glorious - Turner or someone must have found the negative.

MGM was usually pretty good about keeping and storing their negatives.

Turner kept the pre-1986 MGM library, but only some of the UA library, when he was selling off pieces of MGM.

Until a new 35mm color print of 'Gog' showed up on TNT, only rather old 16mm B/W prints were availiable.

Marion Davies' few comedies are real gems -- besides "Show People", "The Cardboard Lover" is worth checking out.
