I've started replacing movies that I already owned. I purchased these movies last week (the movie store was having a buy 2 used, get 1 for $1, and I have a 10% off discount card); then I got some other movies at one of my other used movie haunts; and I got some others as gifts (movies that I didn't actually already have!)
Movies purchased to replace ruined ones I already had:
-The Mary Tyler Moore Show Season 2 DVD
-The Thin Man Goes Home
-Song of the Thin Man
(I owned all 6 of the 'Thin Man' films separately, but I decided that I would purchase the TCM Thin Man collection which has the first four films and then I got the last two separately)
-Three Little Words
-Xanadu (don't judge me, I love this movie)
-That Touch of Mink
-West Side Story
-What a Way to Go!
-Viva Las Vegas
-A Summer Place
-There's No Business Like Show Business
-Cinderella (1950 Disney cartoon)
-TCM Greatest Classic Legends: Barbara Stanwyck
-TCM Greatest Classic Legends: Astaire & Rogers Vol 1
-Star Wars Trilogy (Episodes IV, V, VI)
-The Reluctant Debutante
-My Man Godfrey
-A Charlie Brown Christmas
Then I actually managed to get a couple things that I didn't already have!
-Frank Sinatra Golden Years Collection (this does replace The Tender Trap and Some Came Running, which I already had, but I gained 3 new movies!)
-Tammy Trilogy (Tammy and the Bachelor; Tammy Tell Me True; Tammy and the Doctor)
-A Letter to Three Wives
In honor of Debbie Reynolds, I got:
Susan Slept Here
The Unsinkable Molly Brown
Presenting Lily Mars
The Lady Eve
I have a bunch of gift cards and hopefully an insurance settlement coming, so I look forward to getting new movies.
I do want to give a shout-out to Valley of the Dolls, the true survivor and hero of The Great Basement Flood of 2016. Despite being right in the center of the disaster, it re-emerged, unscathed. Its shelf-neighbors were not as lucky. I attribute Valley of the Dolls' heroism to the fact that it was still wrapped in cellophane.
