  1. ?Young America (1932) - Spencer Tracy, Doris Kenyon, Ralph Bellamy Another early thirties film and directed by Frank Borzage. (I also picked up their recent Tracy offering from the same year, Me and My Gal - that one directed by Raoul Walsh). This is somewhat of a double-dip - previously available as part of The Murnau, Borzage and Fox box set. Edited by: farnsbarns on Nov 27, 2013 5:13 AM

It most definitely is your style. Clever the way you combined two sentences then denied all. Conveniently ignoring what I meant, seeking to confuse the issues. You're obviously not real big on responsibility for your actions. And wait, you're calling me a liar? >filmlover wrote: >>And "over the years"? >>>Since you are registered as less than a year ago, were you banned by TCM and sneaking back under a new name? Nobody's sneaking around here. There were a half dozen or more clues and hints to my identity in my first post here as farnsbarns alone. You know damn well who I am. Of course, your entire post is less than ingenuous. Also you failed to point out I've started no threads here, none. Old habits sometimes die hard - I'd found those threads became targets and were a liability. BTW, had policies been applied evenly filmlover for sure would have been banned so don't play better-than-thou with me. >filmlover wrote: >>contribute to it all the time. I created this thread. Matter of fact, in collaboration with the TCM moderator at the time, I created the Classic Film DVD Reviews Forum and 90% of the threads in it. Your reply doesn't even answer the question and you mean "admin", don't you? There was NO moderation at the time and I wouldn't even bother posting here now if that was still the case.

  3. What are you watching this thread now? Glad one of us has time for such. Surely you're asking a rhetorical question and furthermore I owe you no answers. You expect civility, decency and the little kindnesses but never offer. You've targeted/attacked me and my threads, lied about me, slandered me, falsely accused me of your own misdeeds and ran me off the boards - we both know that's just for starters. I don't mention all the filth, profanity, insults, name-calling and further vitriol directed at me over the years as I'm addressing "filmlover" here only. Maybe we'll discuss it more later if you're still curious or decide to call me hostile again. Edited by: (edited) on Nov 26, 2013 1:36 AM

Whatever. I have the BR version on hold from the library - I'll watch the two precodes, skip the other two then return. It's a free rental - good luck beating that price.

  5. David Lambert at tvshowsondvd.com reports Amazon has listed Here's Lucy - The Complete Series for March 2014 pre-order. I've already purchased all six seasons (usually for around $20 each) so not something I need. Between 2009 and 2012, MPI Home Video released all six seasons on DVD, but now Amazon.com has added a pre-order listing for Here's Lucy - The Complete Series on DVD. There has been no official studio announcement for this title, so please take it with a grain of salt at this time. Pricing shown at Amazon is $159.98 SRP, and of course you can lock in your copy at a discount if you order it now. Stay tuned for updates, as further developments occur!
  6. Save up to 70% at Warner Bros. 90th Anniversary Sale @ Deep Discount. http://www.deepdiscount.com/Warner-Anniversary? Quite a few classic titles mixed in but no way to filter the list by decade or otherwise exclude newer titles. Edited by: farnsbarns on Nov 22, 2013 12:14 PM
  7. Not wanting to make this the Alpha Video thread but they do arguably, aside from TCM Vault and Warner Archive, seem to be the only company releasing an appreciable number of pre-codes - though their's are usually public domain and quality's ever an issue. It would be nice if there was also more news to report from other companies... Anyhow, they recently presented some pre-code films and collections back on October 29th (all titles mentioned here released on that date). Some public domain titles are new to DVD, others like Daring Daughters (1933) w/Marian Marsh are previously available from Sinister Cinema in which case I would rather pay more and get it from them. Everything's Ducky is also included in a new set from comedy team Clark and McCullough: Clark and McCullough: Lost Comedy Classics Collection: Druggists Dilemma (1933) / Gay Nighties (1933) / Kickin' the Crown Around (1933) / Snug in the Jug (1933) / Love and Hisses (1934) / Everything's Ducky (1934) Everything's Ducky and at least one other short here have appeared previously as bonus features on other Alpha releases. Also released, Framed For Murder (1934) with Wallace Ford and June Clyde. Edited by: farnsbarns on Nov 23, 2013 3:26 AM
  8. Thanks for sharing the links. (I actually haven't checked them out since I've not seen the film yet and am trying to avoid any potential spoilers. I know, sounds funny since I posted Lou Lumenick's review of the movie but I did only skim the part concerning the plot). There are some new silent film collections recently released by Alpha Video on 10/29. Collegiate Comedies is obviously the gem of the bunch. Collegiate Comedies includes two comedies directed by Harry Edwards and starring Carole Lombard, Daphne Pollard, Sally Eilers, Johnny Burke & Matty Kemp: Matchmaking Mama (1929) supposedly has Technicolor scenes with the Sennett Bathing Beauties and Campus Vamp (1928). Also included is Relay (1926). Forgotten Funnymen: Jack Duffy - a six short set Lost Silent Aviation Classics: Flying Fool (1925) and The Cloud Patrol (1929) Mack Sennett Classics, Volume 2: One Night Stand / Cursed By His Beauty / Fatty's Tintype Tangle / Plumber / Star Boarder - these shorts are all from 1914 and 1915 Edited by: farnsbarns on Nov 23, 2013 3:19 AM
  9. Among the Fry's sale blurays starting today thru Wednesday there's a couple precodes included in the Ultimate Gangsters Collection, Little Caesar (1931) and Public Enemy (1931). The 5-disc set also contains two later films, The Petrified Forest and White Heat, and is on sale for $27.99 which is slightly over Amazon's price. Also Enter The Dragon w/Bruce Lee is advertised for $16.99. Edited by: FARNS on Nov 22, 2013 2:22 AM
  10. Just a reminder that Here's Edie: The Edie Adams Television Collection came out yesterday (Ediad Productions). There are currently three Amazon reviews for the product - all very informative about the show and the DVD set if anyone's interested.
  11. Amazon has a price drop to $15.99 on TCM Archives: Forbidden Hollywood Collection - Volume One (Waterloo Bridge / Baby Face / Red-Headed Woman). My copy was one of those initial pressings with mislabeled discs so I finally upgraded - now I'll have an extra copy for a loaner. I do recall the set priced as low as $13 (at Amazon) a few years back but this is the closest they've come to matching that again. Also Volume 2 is $16.49 - that's 67% off list - and Volume 3 is currently offered for $20.99 Edited by: farnsbarns on Nov 20, 2013 11:37 PM
  12. Only a few days left on this week's Fry's sale. It's a Wonderful Life is reduced to half price, $19.99, and Shaft is $10.99. Edited by: farnsbarns on Nov 20, 2013 12:30 PM

  14. Recently released on November 5th from MPI Home Video is the 1974 holiday special, Perry Como's Christmas Show. "Unseen anywhere since its one and only CBS-TV broadcast on December 17, 1974, Perry Como's Christmas Show, presents the host with special musical guests The Carpenters along with Olympics skating star Peggy Fleming and comedy great Rich Little."
