Father Knows Red: 24 Hours in Tyrantland on DVD!

On Tuesday, the fine folks at Shout Factory are releasing the first season of the classic Fifties sitcom "Father Knows Best" on DVD. The set features a number of extras, but none more anticipated by CONELRAD readers than the 1959 film that the cast made for the U.S. Treasury Department entitled "Twenty-Four Hours in Tyrantland." CONELRAD posted an article about this strange Cold War curiosity over five years ago and has fielded e-mails about its commercial availability ever since. The film has been available in low-grade VHS incarnations before, but the Shout Factory edition promises to be a sparkling print. This alone makes the set worth purchasing and the Treasury Department would no doubt appreciate any boost to the economy...
