I'm sure if you wait, the price is bound to drop. It won't stay that high indefinitely.

I wish they had an upcoming releases area. I want Stranger on the 3rd Floor, Daddy's Gone a Hunting and few others. They should add more horror and science fiction..but I bet that will happen in October

In reference to the Criterion prices being slapped on the Warner Archives Amazon Exclusives, here are some more titles that are available only at Amazon for $26:

 

Bordertown (1935)

Colorado Territory

Crime School

Doctor Ehrlich's Magic Bullet

The Male Animal (Already mentioned, I believe)

The Unsuspected

20,000 Years in Sing Sing

The Verdict (1946)

Look for the Silver Lining

 

This is a ridiculous price for a barebones unrestored film on DVD-R.

I doubt if the prices will stay that high on Amazon. I think WB is testing the waters thinking that they can get ridiculous prices for these unrestored, bare bones discs. When they realize their mistake I think these titles will revert back to the WB site at $19.95. And I can wait!!

Of this current wave, only ONE SUNDAY AFTERNOON with Gary Cooper. I have no interest in the other Cooper films nor the mediocre Powell-Keeler musicals. If prices were much lower I would consider some of these WB musicals. I am trying to be very selective in my choices of the Archives. I expect to spend big bucks for the upcoming DDD sale.

Looks like the Archives is offering a special price of $49.95 for the set of Powell-Keeler musicals. Will possibly consider since I still have a 15% off from the last survey I did. The price would the come down to about $42.50 not including tax.

HollywoodG.--Thank you very much for the service you provide in updating the list with the new titles in bold.

 

I have told WB in a survey, and also posted a couple times on my blog (hopefully they are searching for public feedback...), that WB desperately needs to revamp their website, including making it easy to discern recent releases. Hopefully that day will come, but in the meantime what you are doing is a real help. Just want you to know I check this thread regularly and your effort is greatly appreciated.

One Sunday Afternoon

Operator 13

Today We Live

Anybody notice we are paying more for these unremastered collections than we would for a regular box set that has bonus features, remastered, etc.?

Yes, the prices are still too high!! Was hoping for a price drop to at least $14.99. Will pass on all the Cooper films with the exception of ONE SUNDAY AFTERNOON. After thinking will also pass on the Keeler-Powell films even at the discounted price of $42.50 with my 15% off. I can do without all of these titles. At these prices I am being very, very selective. Does anyone know what additional title was added today!!

Got the 15% discount from the survey I took a while back. It was due to expire at the end of May but they are still honoring it: WACSUR. I think you would have needed to complete the survey for this to be honored. BTW, spoke to a lady at customer service and she told me these Archive are selling like hotcakes. So why should WB lower the prices. I am disappointed but I am not going to spend hundreds of dollars on titles that I can do without. My collection is too big to get carried away. Even on Blu Ray's I am being selective!!!

Interesting, I was offered a discount for completing a survey but it was only 10% and it was WACSURVEY (also due to expire 5/31). Ironically since it appears TCM is selling the movies for $17.99, you can get them there 10% off any time at all...although I don't know if there's any difference in shipping rates.

I got the extra % due to a slip up when they didn't send me the code right away. I haven't used it as yet and apparently its still good. For a while I hope.

It's great that they're putting out more silents and early sound. I wonder if the Archives will give WHV sufficient cover from the slings and arrows of political correctness that they can release the rest of their Jolson films, maybe even as a set?

As far as getting lists of all Warner Archive products, their year of release, and their price (basically two flavors - Amazon Exclusive price and $19.95), if you go to dvdaf.com and filter on "Warner Archive" under title, you get a completely alphabetized list. dvdaf.com shows 229 total titles so far, and that includes what is planned for June.
