Thanks for the info. She made two films with Ladd at Paramount. The other one was CHINA, produced a year earlier.

More goodies from the Vault in November:

WELLS FARGO (1937)- Joel McCrea, Frances Dee
100 MEN AND A GIRL (1937) - Deanna Durbin
THE BROKEN LULLABYE (1932) - Lionel Barrymore, Nancy Carroll
THE FEMALE ANIMAL (1958) - Hedy Lamarr, Jane Powell, Jan Sterling, George Nader
A GATHERING OF EAGLES (1963) - Rock Hudson, Rod Taylor, Mary Peach, Barry Sullivan
NEVER SAY GOODBYE(1956) - Rock Hudson, Cornell Borchers, George Sanders
SCARLET ANGEL (1952) - Yvonne De Carlo, Rock Hudson

Looks like these are all Universal released films.

The Warner Archives is starting to reach the bottom of the barrel...but Universal is a rich vein, and I am glad they've started mining the vaults.

...and especially THE UNINVITED with Milland and Gail Russell.

 

The Criterion Collection released THE UNINVITED on DVD and Blu-ray in 2013, with outstanding picture quality and good extras.  It's not inexpensive, but worth the price nonetheless (esp. if you get it during one of the Criterion half-price sales).

 

I'd never seen it before buying that release, and was really glad that I took a chance on it for our Halloween viewing.  Spooky but light-hearted story, great cast (besides Milland and Russell, Ruth Hussey and Donald Crisp), and the "Stella By Starlight" melody as the theme.  I had no idea that that beautiful song was from a movie.

oldies.com has lots and lots of old movies on DVD and Blueray.  You can sign up for free printed catalog.  Actually it's the size of a newspaper and about 100 pages with about 40-50 DVD's on each page.  Natuarally they have a website as well.

I thnk they might listen. They are releasing another Carole Lombard set so why not Milland. BTW these are Vault Collections.

Why exactly do we mean by a 'vault' collection..?

How about ALIAS NICK BEAL with Milland? A Mitchell Liesen set is way overdue. HOLD BACK THE DAWN, TO EACH HIS OWN.

ALIAS NICK BEAL is most unusual, a combination of noir and fantasy. Milland is sinister and Audrey Totter is sleazily alluring. I have a so-so DVD of this film, but I'd like to own a first-rate print.

Does writing Universal Home Entertainment help any?
I followed them on Twitter and they thanked me for my suggestions. I'm guessing they only care about things that can be quickly sold like The Man with the X-Ray Eyes. :_| They need a real classics buff in their marketing department!
There are a ton of people who would by a Milland or Leisen box set !

Seen KITTY several times and its one of Goddard best films. Too bad it was not shot in color. Milland seem to be lost in the shuffle like Irene Dunne was before they started releasing all of her films to DVD. Another Milland film...LADY IN THE DARK should be added to the list. UNIVERSAL WAKE UP!!!

Is Universal ever going to consider doing a box set release of Ray Milland's early movies? Would love to see a box set of the stuff from the mid to late thirties and early '40s.. what's taken them so long to bring classics like Arise My Love and Kitty out? Or a Mitch Leisen boxset?
