> {quote:title=Edgecliff wrote:}{quote}Filmlover, the WalMart site does not have these titles at those prices. No WalMart near me unfortunately unless I take a trip out here. I wonder about others like Fry's. Only 7 yEAR ITCH is selling for that price oddly enough.

The website doesn't match what the price is in stores. In the WM stores, they are $9.96 each. However, the one I went to said they only got 4 copies of each, and when I went to the shelves there were only about 2 of each one.


The good news is that it has been reported that *Costco* has at least 4 of the titles at $9.99 each. The exception seems to be that they don't carry River of No Return.

> {quote:title=audreyforever wrote:}{quote}Ooo, I hate it when they repackage old DVDs in new sets, which seems to be the case with Some Like it Hot and The Misfits in the Forever Marylin set.

These are Blu-rays. But, yes, they are reusing the SLIH and Misfits Blus from before. But if you go to a Walmart store, you can buy the 5 new titles for $9.96 each. Or $9.99 each for four of the titles at Costco (they don't have River of No Return, from all reports).

Is what expensive? If you mean membership to Costco, it is about $50 a year, but it is worth it. I save way more than in about a month of shopping there. From electronics to groceries to gas. Their selection of DVDs and Blus is always very small, especially at this time of year, so that should never be the reason to join. But I love Costco!

Filmlover, it just would not be worth it to me to join Costco. Never really bought anything there and really have no interest. My hope is the Monroe individual titles will eventually be reduced in price. I don't think I want the box set and I do like the covers of each title.

filmlover, I think FOX blew it with their release of the Marilyn set. This should have been a deluxe box set with gorgeous color box cover plus hardcover book and some extra features new to this set. They seems to have slapped this set together updating for BR and that is all plus lousy packaging. Shame on FOX. Now I heard they are not making anamorphic prints for their CinemaScope films in the Classic Cinema releases for MOD. In the past the studio had handled their classics beautifully on DVD now they don't seem to care. Who wants pan and scan for widescreen films. They are setting things backwards.

I agree about the MM set. Bad move all around for their greatest star.


I should mention that for those who haven't made the switch to Blu yet, Fox has also released "Marilyn: the Premiere Colllection", which has something like 17 DVDs:


All About Eve

As Young As You Feel

Lets Make It Legal

Love Nest

Don't Bother To Knock

Monkey Business

O. Henry's Full House

We're Not Married

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

How To Marry A Millionaire


There's No Business Like Show Business

The Seven Year Itch

Bus Stop

Some Like It Hot

Let's Make Love

The Misfits
