A critically acclaimed Garson Kanin/Dalton Trumbo collaboration, A Man to Remember is one of six RKO films of the 1930s previously thought "lost" but rediscovered and restored by Turner Classic Movies. A Man to Remember has not been seen since its original theatrical release in 1938. Not part of a 50's television package commonly sold along with the other five "lost" RKO films, it remained relatively unseen until its broadcast premiere on TCM in April 2007. The only surviving copy of this film was a 35mm original nitrate, Dutch-subtitled, English-language print, which was preserved by the Netherlands Filmmuseum in 2000. A rare remake generally considered superior to the original and shot, according to Kanin, in 15 days on a budget of only $84,000, A Man to Remember received extraordinary critical praise. The New York Times named it as one of the years ten best films. The newspaper's critic Frank S. Nugent called it "a distinguished and unusual film, for the qualities which distinguish it are merely such elements as simplicity, honesty dignity and human warmth -- elements which properly should be found in every film drama, yet so rarely are." A Man to Remember is now available for the first time on home video.
