Paramount Publix used to be a studio back in the 30's. They cranked out a ton of films especially with their hot new star Cary Grant. Cary made 24 films before leaving Paramount Publix. None of these films have made it to DVD. I would assume that Paramount holds the rights to them but I could be wrong. As a Cary Grant fan, I would love to see some of these classics.

From this website, http://www.scripophily.net/parfamlascor1.html:
1930 - Name change: Paramount Publix Corporation.

1935 - Paramount Publix Corp. goes bankrupt. Reorganized as Paramount Pictures, Inc. under Adolph Zukor.
It should seem that Paramount has the rights, but how many really old movie releases have we gotten from Paramount recently? Do you know if these ever saw the light of day on VHS?
