I haven't seen it in years, but Wonder Boys is probably my favorite Hanson film as well, and the cast - Douglas, Maguire, Downey Jr.,etc. - really are perfect. Sad story, but someone in the business once told me that he got a job on a Hanson project, much to his delight, only to be crushed when Hanson suddenly left the film because it was revealed that he had Alzheimer's (in actuality, a rare form of dementia) that made it impossible for him to continue. (I have no idea if it was already known he was ill or if something acute happened that spurred an examination.) I was shocked to hear this as he was still alive and I had no idea he was ill.

I highly recommend (re)watching the movie alongside (re)reading the book. Neither quite nails their differences and there are things that work better in one medium and not the other, but together they’re fantastic

I'm a bit confused: The Odd Couple (1968) is currently available on Amazon as "Blu-ray," while Deep Discount presents the available blu-ray as "Manufactured on Demand." Is there any hope of receiving a pressed blu-ray of The Odd Couple (1968), if ordered from Deep Discount?
