Recommended Posts

Reminder: Please post special sales information in this thread and not in individual new threads. Having it all here in one place makes it easier to find, rather than going through thread after thread. It also keeps the Classic Film DVD Reviews Forum a much neater place. Thanks.

I was at Costco on 02/10/2008, & they were selling some Oscar winner classics for $8.99, in this really cool special gold box, which states "Oscar Winner", & list how manys Oscar the film had been nominated for! I bought "PSYCHO" & the box states: NOMINATED FOR 4 ACADEMY AWARDS INCLUDING BEST DIRECTOR & the bottom of the box 1960 WIDESCEEN! I noticed they also had "Rear Widow" & "Vertigo" too. They had "The Sting" but "ONLY" in fullscreen, so I didn't buy that!

Not exactly info on specific sales, but an overall look at how studios want to hype DVDs in general:

 

Studios Try to Save the DVD

 

A winner has finally been declared in Hollywood?s high-definition DVD war. So why isn?t there more cheering?

 

In the 1980s, the triumph of VHS over Betamax helped develop the lucrative home entertainment market. DVDs, introduced in the 1990s, turned into an even bigger gold mine, accounting for roughly 60 percent of studio profits in recent years, analysts say. The entertainment giants have positioned high-definition DVDs as yet another blockbuster business.

Amazon has a special on film noirs at several different price levels, including a number of the Fox ones at $7.99 each. I'm getting 14 Hours and Shock, two I need for the Fox Film Noir set.

I know about Oldies.com

Anyway 10.00 for a movie that sells for 15-20.00 that is in a store to me is better than 6.98 + shipping & waiting for the movie to arrive

I was really impressed with Virgin, they had Citizen Kane for 10.00 too
