  1. >The 30s crowd should be excited, though. Oh yeah. LOTS of pre-codes! Thanks classicstarletsfan for posting the link!
  2. I haven't been buying many DVDs lately... I had a 20% off coupon from Buy.com a couple months ago and picked up: What I Like About You: The Complete First Season Tex Avery's Droopy: The Complete Theatrical Collection No Man of Her Own (1932) Gable & Lombard F-Troop: The Complete Seasons 1 & 2 DuBarry Was a Lady (1943) Queen of Outer Space (1958) Oh yeah, I also bought an AMC cheapo, The Greeks Had a Word for Them (1934). (Terrible quality). Still waiting for a sale or better price on: Hardcastle and McCormack S2 Josephine Baker Collection - Zou Zou/ Princess Tam Tam/ Siren of the Tropics - Kino (retails for $60) Wild Wild West S2 It seems I've built up a backlog of titles to purchase now - mostly recent releases: Threepenny Opera (1931) G.W. Pabst - Criterion Scarface (1932) - George Raft & Ann Dvorak "The Sin of Nora Moran" (1933, 64 min.)/"Prison Train" (1938, 63 min.) I'm buying this one for The Sin of Nora Moran - thanks for the heads up on this title, Mr. Grimes! Two of the best small independent feature films of the 1930s and both influences on Orson Welles' "Citizen Kane". - Amazon Editorial Review Shirley Temple - America's Sweetheart Collection, Vol. 5 with it's inclusion of two color titles (The Little Princess - color/ Stand Up and Cheer - b&w/ The Blue Bird - color) Woody Woodpecker and Friends Classic Cartoon Collection Monster Squad (1987) A Far Off Place (1993) w/ Reese Witherspoon - thanks for the suggestion Theresa! Betty Hutton Show Vol. 1 (Alpha Video) Night at the Family Dog (1970) They Call Me Trinity (1971) - Hens Tooth Video Trinity Is Still My Name (1971) - Hens Tooth Video Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against The West When Comedy Was King (1959) I'm also looking forward to some upcoming releases: Jazz Singer - Vitaphone extras include all surviving footage from the Two Strip Technicolor, Gold Diggers of Broadway (1929) - October 16th! Treasures from American Film Archives III includes Cecil B. DeMille's The Godless Girl (1929) - also available October 16th! Fat Spy (1966) Alpha Video 30 Years Of Fun - Robert Youngson Cat & Canary (1927) - Kino - TCM just aired this a couple weeks ago so I'll preview the recording to see if I'm going to buy it. Love, American Style Season 1, Volume 1! Lots of great guest stars in this sexual comedy series from the 1970s. Kill Or Be Killed/ Witch Doctor - several movies go by the title of Kill Or Be Killed so I'll have to wait and see if it's the one from 1980 (which I've never seen). I own the follow-up movie, Kill and Kill Again - it's camp classic martial arts. The verdict's still out for me on Three Stooges Collection - 1934-1936. Are these sets going to contain the un-cut originals? What's the deal with On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969)? Are they going to release this one individually or what? They're already selling a "Complete Collection" combining all four sets. Expecting the Forbidden Hollywood II box to appear in time for the Christmas season. Rumoured titles are: Illicit (1931) - Barbara Stanwyck Night Nurse (1931) - Barbara Stanwyck Ladies They Talk About (1933) - Barbara Stanwyck Female (1933) - Ruth Chatterton A Free Soul (1931) - Norma Shearer The Divorcee (1930) - Norma Shearer I'm hoping the rumoured Stanwyck box set from Sony will include some more of her pre-code titles.
  3. Hey, thanks for the additional info!
  4. >This one sounds interesting, under the Nov. 20th listing: >Film Noir:Five Classics From The Stud - Kino . >I wonder what the five titles are. Oops - I see the info's been posted already. Message was edited by: Snarfie
  5. One or two new ones from my want list! Love American Style, finally! And Kill or be Killed - I think this might be the 1980 movie with James Ryan from my want list.

  6. Thanks, this was the first I'd heard of it. I'm looking forward to seeing Susan Lenox: Her Fall and Rise (1931).
  7. I'm not going to weigh in on this but great thread title.
  8. Thankfully, she didn't yodel. jhickman, you may want to post this information in General Issues where others are experiencing similar problems. snarfie
  9. Yeah. How about Constance Bennett's Daily Beauty Ritual (1937)? When you wake up in the morning with your make-up already in place the rest of the process should just be gravy.
  10. A short called Echo Mountain aired right after The Most Dangerous Game.
  11. I recorded that one - it was Natural Wonders of Washington State. My first DVR experience recording a short didn't go quite so well. I was manually recording the Ruth Etting Vitaphone short, Roseland and it shut off just before the end. I was watching it though so I did at least get to see it. I have since learned how to extend the recording time. Message was edited by: Snarfie
  12. >Also, the thread listings do not seem to indicate the most recent post consistently. Right, the problem isn't confined to within the threads.
  13. (I had an immediate error page first two times I tried to post the preceding). This problem's really bad today. I've had to edit messages on several threads just to view what I posted earlier. Message was edited by: Snarfie
  14. I had to edit one of my preceding posts here just now to view Rusty's post and my reply to him again.

  17. Hi Rusty, No, it's nothing you did - it's just a glitch on their end. Several people were experiencing this same problem on the Programming Challenge thread. One way to get the post to show up might be to make another post on that thread or edit a previous post of yours on that thread. Jeff Message was edited by: Snarfie
  18. >The lady seated with them is actress Louise Closser Hale. Okay, it's not Myrna's mother then. Thanks for the info and saving me the trouble of trying to look it up.
  19. >Thanks for the wonderful picture of "The Barbarian". >Just the other night I had it on because it's one of >my favorite Ramon Novarro films. Hi metsfan! Have you checked out the Pre-Code Gallery down in the Pre-Code genre forum? I've posted several other pictures from The Barbarian there. There's one with Myrna sitting in front of a dresser that was my original post here. I swapped it out right away though because, well, you'll see why if you check it out. Snarfie
  20. Hi, that's Ramon Novarro - they're taking a break from filming The Barbarian (1933). I think that's Myrna's mother with them - I'll have to get back to you on that one.
  21. Looks like we lost MaryS. : (
  22. In case anyone's wondering how to access the new schedule - just go to "SCHEDULE" at the top left of the screen here then click on view by week. Then adjust your timezone with the drop down box. Festival of Shorts have a green "SHORTS" icon in the genre column and short films have a green "SHORT" icon to make them easy to find. They're only listed thru Thursday right now and I think someone here has mentioned that they're being updated on Thursdays though I can't seem to find where I read it.. So here's the current listings, all EST so no one gets confused.

  23. Hey Larry, The Blue Veil is in legal limbo last I heard which is why we've never seen it. Snarf
