Jeez, I'm tired of folk asking "Is this legit?", yeah, it's legit:

Excellent!

Is the "legit" confusion over the font used on the packaging? Or the lack of a back cover image being displayed on Amazon? My guess is the later.

P.S. Loved the Chase set! All the material was new to me, but having become a Todd fan over the past few years I picked it up. Sure glad I did.

Here's my 5 Star "review" on/from Amazon

A must have for Thelma Todd and Classic film Comedy Fans

Nearly all of these are truly amazing transfers of what I'd guess(?) are rare films.

I became a serious Thelma Todd fan over the past few years, never had much exposure to Chase. This set changed that, some seriously funny stuff here.

Yes I'm a HD whiner :) so I wish this had been issued on Blu-ray, if only to see early Thelma as close to lifelike as possible in HD. If ever released in HIRES [physical or non physical media] they have at least one pre-order customer in me!

If you are a Thelma Todd or Charley Chase or Classic Film Comedy Fan grab this set before it goes out of print and commands high coin from marketplace sellers.
