The underlying rights to the film were purchased by National Telefilm Associates in the 1950s for television distribution. NTA renamed itself Republic Pictures in 1985, and merged with Spelling Entertainment in 1994. Spelling was acquired by Viacom in 1999, putting the film under the ownership of the studio which launched the Marx Brothers' film career, Paramount Pictures, which Viacom had acquired in 1994. Their Paramount films themselves are now owned by Universal, having been sold with most of the studio's other pre-1950 sound features to eventual Universal parent MCA in 1957. Paramount has licensed US video rights to the films they acquired in the Spelling merger over the years to Artisan Entertainment, Lions Gate Entertainment, and since 2012, Olive Films, which most recently reissued Love Happy in 2015.
