I finally wore out my elderly VHS tape of this fine film -- the one with Bruce Davidson, Ernest Borgnine and Elsa Lanchester -- and was thrown to discover that I can only find it on DVD if I send for it in whatever disc format they use in Italy. Has it not been released in the good old US of A on a region 1 DVD?

Here's a place that offers Willard and Ben on VHS-to-DVD-R transfer. Apparently it's a very basic DVD, so you take what you can get.

So basically, the answer is "no". :evil: I'll have to think about buying the disc. But thanks for telling me about the site!

I decided to err on the side of the law and sent for a new, shrinkwrapped videotape. It will fit fine in the big white clamshell case, with Ben glowering on the front, that the other tape came in...

Scream Factory is going to release Willard and Ben on DVD and blu ray some time Soon(TM); they just announced that they acquired those titles and eleven others that you probably aren't as interested in at Comic Con.

Excellent news! Except now I have the Jackson Five's immortal love song "Ben" playing in my head...
