thanks for the heads up, I was literally just looking at Sweet Rosie O'Grady last night and the price was $19.99, but $10 is too good to pass up.

Arturo I picked up this info from another site. I think FOX miscalulated re the release of these films. I don't think they are as yet up on Amazon. These titles should be August-September releases.

This is great news. However on their website, it seems that those titles listed as being on sale effective 07/03/12, you are not able to purshase, only those on sale on 06/26/12. Is this correct, or does it just need updating, or...?

looks like Sweet Rosie O'Grady is only $17.98 now. I hope there are more Betty Grable movies to come, I was always disappointed that Fox never made a Vol. 2 collection.

I don't think I have purchased an Olive film yet. The reviews have not been great. The most I have spent on a single Blu film would be some of the Twilight Time/Screen Archives releases, but even those are so lacking in extras that I hesitate. For a little less money, one could buy a Criterion where you know they will have done some work on the film and provided a bountiful of extras. Or getting a studio-issued release that will be relatively cheap (for example, I just got "Hondo", which was released by Paramount, digitally remastered, has a number of extras, and only cost $12.99. Big Trail (temporarily exclusive at Wal-Mart) is also excellent at the same price.

Re: your question about Singin' in the Rain. Besides the film's 4k remastering, the only thing I have been able to determine as far as new things that could be on the disc is a new documentary. The rest of the collector's set is made up of two DVDs and the contents mirror exactly what was on the two-disc special edition DVD set that came out several years ago. I am going with the single-disc release coming out. I'd really like to have that book in the collector's set but I won't pay $60 more for it and an umbrella (at this moment, Amazon has the single disk release at $13.99 and the UCE at $76.49). I would also not be surprised to learn if some stores have exclusive variant editions when it comes out, like Target did with its digibook of West Side Story, which was a duplicate (except for layout) of the book in the WSS collector's set.

There are maybe 3 titles in the FOX list that I want:

DIPLOMATIC COURIER
SWEET ROSIE O'GRADY
CLAUDIA

I like a number of the titles that Olive is putting out but I think the list price is way out of line. Rather spend that on the Criterion BR discs. I also like Screen Archives but am being very selective on these too. Only ordered JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH and DESIREE. Glad they scaled the price down, but its not enough for me to purchase every title released by that company. Not sure if I will purchase the box of SINGIN IN THE RAIN or the single disc. I am wondering if the single will have most of what is on the box edition.

I know the feeling. And there are so many older titles coming out on Blu now that I find it hard to spend money on DVD-Rs.

Thanx for the followup. I need to be very selective since there are lots of FOX films I love.
