I have only done a quick run through on each title, and have not sat down to watch any of the completely, but the transfers are first rate no playback issues, and the packageing is excellent.
I will no doudt be buying more titles in the near future.

The Single Standard
Souls for Sale
Beast of the City
I have only seen Exit Smiling once before and it's been years since I've seen Strange Interlude on TCM. The others I was buying based on reputation.
Only Thursday April 2 did I finally get a message from WBShop saying they shipped. Like the author of this thread they also mentioned that The Single Standard was what was holding things up and said they had credited 15% back to my credit card because of the delay. The order is yet to be delivered, but I'll get back to you on quality when I receive them.
I guess it's a good sign if volume is so high WBShop is having to delay shipment a week to catch up with brisk business. They would do even better business if they would lower their prices just a few dollars.

since these are rarer 'on demand' titles, i suppose they will stay at $20 @ title...... the price is too steep for me though. i might just get 2 or 3 titles this year.

SO THIS IS LOVE
ON BORROWED TIME
3 SAILORS AND A GIRL
Only watched SO THIS IS LOVE. Very impressed by the print. The last time I saw this film was on a small screen B&W TV. This was a bare bones DVD, with no trailer. I have yet to watch the others.
I agree with many people that the price of these DVD's should be no more than $14.99. Hopefully the archives will have more sales, otherwise I am being very, very selective about which titles I choose.

first of all, i'm curious to know:
which titles other people bought.
which format you oped for: DVD-R, download, rental
if you've received any of yours yet.
any reviews, issues, questions, complaints that may arise
i bought all the Garbo pictures: The Kiss, Wild Orchids, The Single Standard, and Love, plus Ice Follies of 1939. although i got a shipping confirmation from Warner saying all the titles had shipped, i got an apology email a few days ago saying that the Single Standard wasn't ready but would be within 10-14 days (they also said i would get an additional 15% off of it and it would be overnighted, which was impressive). Yesterday i received Love, the quality was just what was depicted on the site, there were no playability issues, and it even had 10-minute interval chapter-stops, which i didn't expect. overall, i love Love and can't wait to get the others, i will definitely have to allocate part of my budget for this library.
