Is this by any chance a double feature, filmlover?

 

Was hoping WB would put THE COURT JESTER on BR. But unfortunately it goes to the archives with FIVE PENNIES.

 

Have you bought any of the newer FOX titles on Screen Archives? Bought 3 recently since they gave me 10% on BR that were in my cart. LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN, LOVE IS A MANY SPLENDORED THING and DRUMS ALONG THE MOHAWK. Trying to be very selective due to the steep prices.

They are individual releases. And another one for March 14th. Hatari!

 

I haven't bought Screen Archives titles for awhile. Too expensive. There have been several Fox classics issued on Blu-ray recently that I got at Costco for $9.99. Blood and Sand, Letter to Three Wives, etc.

 

Have you been getting any Criterions at B&N during the sale? I picked up I Married A Witch and To Be Or Not To Be. With discounts, coupons, membership, I got IMAW for $13.49 and TBONTB for $14.39.

That 10% discount did help but titles still expensive for Screen Archives/

 

Bought both I MARRIED A WITCH and THE UNINVITED some tine ago.

 

I might buy CITY LIGHTS and LA CAGE AU FOLLES also maybe TO BE OR NOT TO BE. Not sure yet if I will buy all three titles. Thought I would buy the INGRID BERGMAN set but I could do without this one. I do have the DVD of TO BE OR NOT TO BE so BR iffy.

Filmlover - thank you so much for your continual updates. They're much appreciated.

 

I'm so thrilled to see The Private Affairs of Bel Ami among the list of new Olive acquisitions. As in his other collaborations with writer-director Albert Lewin, George Sanders is in peak cad-form opposite such ladies as a stunning, baby Angela Lansbury, the always-captivating Ann Dvorak, gorgeous Frances Dee, typically-blonde Marie Wilson, etc. Also - Warren William's final screen appearance. Now I just have to be patient, right? ;)
