Thanks for the update, Edge. Are these being released as a boxed set or in separate volumes?

Nice idea a box set but Sony is releasing these as single discs. WB would have done the box.

NEW TITLES:

2 MORE WHISTLER FILMS STARRING RICHARD DIX

So I suppose we can expect them to release all the Whistler films in short order.

NEW TITLES

THE WHISTLER (1944)
THE POWER OF THE WHISTLER (1945)

Based on the popular radio program, Richard Dix stars

Surprised these were not previously available. Taking them a long time to get around to some of the more obvious titles.

Air Hostess finally shipped. It was worth the wait for such a beautiful print. Have to look pretty hard to find any minor flaws. Overall very nice quality especially for an 80 year old film - clear and sharp, good contrast, mildly grainy, some small specks not real noticeable. I only previewed the first half hour or so as I've seen the film recently - but not looking like this.
Nice job Sony/Columbia!

An Evalyn Knapp precode, a Betty Compson silent - they've definitely got my attention.

12/3

*BELLE OF BROADWAY* (1926) stars Betty Compson A first for Sony as this is a silent film. I wonder if there are more to come.
