The deal is this: we've got the special-interest laws & corrupt legislature big-business lobbyists' money has bought & paid for, because this is yet another 80+ yr old picture hogtied by "rights" conflicts, according to Wikipedia. Everyone connected with making it moulders in their graves, yet parasites still seek to feed on it (thanks to collusion by a rapaciously venal Congress), rather than undertaking creative work of their own.
I'd never heard of it, I'm ashamed to say, but reading the Wikipedia entry on it just now makes me see bloody red, because not only do I know I'd love it, but by some incredible miracle of good luck, it has survived substantially intact, unlike so many of the other great musicals made at the same time, the Crash. God bless the bootlegger who finds some way to put this into circulation.
