Matt:

We recently purchased CAVALCADE OF MGM SHORTS on laserdisc. Vol.1 contains 6
Benchley MGM shorts from 1935 to 1940. _How to Sleep_ is one of them. The
others are: _A Night at the Movies_ (Nov. 1937), _Music Made Simple_ (April
1938), _An Evening Alone_ (May 1938), _That Inferior Feeling_ (January
1940), and _Home Movies_ (February 1940).

I have to recommend this series as well as the VITAPHONE SHORTS boxed sets.
The image transfers are excellent and they present a chunk of americana that
has been difficult to come by until now.
