There are more TCM sets coming out in June including a *Legends Joan Crawford s*et in June (these were released in a box set and separetley over the years) with Mildred Pierce, Possessed , etc ..

I thought about getting it but it depends on if they carry the same features in the older releases.

Something else of interest is coming out too

{font:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif}{size:12px}Women in Danger - 1950s Thrillers DVD

{font}{font:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif}{size:12px}This sounded so cool I pre-ordered it based on what I read on the films in the set Women in Hiding and Female on the Beach get some rave reviews..

Anyway if this was posted earlier , my aplogies..I dont scroll back too far :){font}

I think it is too confusing having threads for every possibility. Look at the TCM Vault thread, for example. It was set up with one studio in mind. Now they do it through different studios. So, should we have a thread for every single one? I don't see any reason why we can't just use this one thread as a catch-all, except for WarnerArchive. Having a thread for Olive was also a stretch. Why bother? Do we need to do one for Kino? For VCI? Criterion? Sony? No.


Also, to add to the confusion, the Grapes of Wrath and Zorba the Greek are NOT limited editions. Just for the time being they are temporarily exclusive to SA. Once that time passes, they will likely be available everywhere. It's like titles that are exclusive for a set amount of time to Best Buy or Walmart. Or should we also have another thread for exclusives by store? No, it would get ridiculous.


As long as we mention here where titles are available when they are exclusive, there is no confusion that I can see. Having 10 or so different threads for upcoming releases IS confusing. I know there are some who are list-oriented and need to break every single thing down. I read the other day on a message board that a person who has hundreds of titles filed them on his shelves, not alphabetically, but by studio!


This thread is called "Upcoming Releases." That covers everything that is an upcoming release. Simple.

A note to anyone who is thinking about ordering Screen Archives Entertainment titles, whether it be Twilight Time or otherwise, if you order directly from SAE and order for than $50, you can get $10 off by using the code "AMAZON". (Yes, you use it on SAE's site, not Amazon's.)

filmlover,do you know if the $10 off is a one-time use? BTW, in looking at the site I notice DESIREE with Brando and Jean Simmons in BR is up for pre-order. Will probably be ordering this title as well as DEMETRIUS.

Good catch about Desiree.


Yes, the $10 is one time per account. I placed an order a few hours ago for Demetrius and Mysterious Island, using the $10 code, since they are both available now. (And I ordered Picnic a few days ago through their Amazon listing since I have some credit there.) I did a test, seeing if I could get it again for a pre-order on Grapes of Wrath and Zorba the Greek, but it came up as one time only per account. Too bad, too, because that $10 makes it a little easier to pay the higher price of TT films. I am wondering if one were to use a different email if they could do another order?

Too bad, I think SAE would do well to always have $10 off. I think this would encourage sales. The Columbia titles are way too expensive for me. I am happy with DVD's of those films. Never was a fan of MYSTERIOUS ISLAND. I probably would order JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH. Can't understand why FOX won't issue this title in BR. Very odd.

I don't think it has been mentioned here yet, but there is a strong possibility that *Dial M For Murder* is coming out on Blu-ray *in 3D* later in 2012. There is also a distinct possibility it is going to be a WarnerArchive release.

Im excited about the Colossus of NY coming to Blu, it already looked great in SD.

*Rome Express* I know nothing about it but it is intriging and will rent it first

I ordered blindly the movie *Grand Central Murder* to try the new ordering process on the website and it was on sale, plus I like Mystery Noir so why not ???

The ordering on the site seemed, well, the same actually :)

The other one that sounds good is Homicide and House Across the Street but my budget will not let me order no more than one WB Archive a month (if that)

Too many great Blu Rays coming out this year ( Gorgo, the 39 Steps, Ed Wood, Indiana Jones, US Marshals, Blade, Chinatown) to name a few

If you all remember, we had an annoucement here for The Grapes of Wrath to be on sale in early April, exclusive to Screen Archives Entertainment. Well, I guess that exclusive is only for two months because Amazon now has a listing for it at $20.99, coming out June 5th. So if you are willing to wait the two months, you can save bygetting it from Amazon for about $4 less plus not have to pay SAE's shipping charges.
