  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
  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

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 yo
  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
  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
  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."
  15. Shout Factory has the Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman set currently available ahead of the 12/3 release date and for a decent price for those who just can't wait - around $179. Personally I'm still waiting for a better deal. Hoping to get the set for $125 or less over the holidays. I've found the set as cheap as $145 from Rakuten (formerly Buy.com). The $3 standard postage seemed rather paltry at $80 less than Amazon and B&N's postage-paid prices but during checkout I found they charge (Illinois) sales tax - so that was a deal killer for me. Haven't ordered from Buy recently but don't reca
  16. Oops - guess I didn't check the other thread closely enough. I remember it now that you mention the MU exclusive. Edited by: farnsbarns on Nov 13, 2013 11:54 PM
  17. A couple Jack Benny films released today from WA: George Washington Slept Here (1942) The Horn Blows at Midnight (1945)

  19. Shout! Factory continues to be the big name for 1950s TV on DVD... The recently released 3 disc set, The Jack Benny Show: The Lost Episodes, gave us "new", uncut episodes of the show, unseen in decades - not the public domain episodes so commonly seen and re-seen. They've now scheduled a 2 disc set, The Red Skelton Show: The Lost Episodes, for 02/11/2014. No details yet but I expect it will similarly set itself apart from other past (Red Skelton) collections. (Also hoping for lots of Lucille Knoch). The list of major 1950s shows they've brought us so far is impressive: Leave
  20. Air Hostess finally shipped. It was worth the wait for such a beautiful print. Have to look pretty hard to find any minor flaws. Overall very nice quality especially for an 80 year old film - clear and sharp, good contrast, mildly grainy, some small specks not real noticeable. I only previewed the first half hour or so as I've seen the film recently - but not looking like this. Nice job Sony/Columbia!
  21. Some upcoming releases from Twilight Time: _01-21-14_ Khartoum (1966) Man in the Dark (3-D) (1953) Zulu (1964) _02-11-14_ The Blue Max (1966) The Eddie Duchin Story (1956) Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974) Edited by: farnsbarns on Nov 4, 2013 7:59 AM
  22. My Mother The Car: The Series comes to DVD November 12, 2013 from TGG Direct. The 1965 TV comedy stars Jerry Van Dyke and Ann Sothern (as the voice of the car). The show has gained some notoriety over the years for being a bit of a clunker. Edited by: farnsbarns on Nov 2, 2013 11:09 PM
  23. A definite improvement in shipping times from them with Allied Vaughn. Little Man, What Now? shipped a whole lot quicker than Tillie and Gus and This Day and Age did recently. Anxious to see if they'll announce any pre-codes slated for November. Edited by: farnsbarns on Nov 1, 2013 1:36 AM
  24. VCI has another 50% off _SRP_ thru 11/5/2013 with coupon code: SPOOKY50 www.vcient.com
