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?

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!!!

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 !

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.

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..?

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.

...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.

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.

So is the Universal Vault series dead? There have been no releases since the end of 2016. Just wondering if anybody knows anything. There is so much left in their vaults.
