I wish someone would restore it and release it in HD on bluray in the widescreen format. I love the way George plays Evel as the grumpy moody guy. Which Evel could be..

On Oct 17th 1938 a baby was born.
That baby would become a man,that man became a LEGEND.
On Nov 30th 2007 the man passed away.
But his Legend lives on in the hearts the minds and the memories of
the millions of people whose lives he touched in the 69 years he graced the earth.
Thanks Evel we will NEVER FORGET YOU.
