I would up getting Intruder in the Dust, The Window, Libel & Bodyguard and happily liked them all to keep.

Thanks to ClassicFlix I have been able to rent some of these 'never heard of it' titles and wasnt sure if it was my cup of tea..

So far the ones I rented were just that - renters :)

I really want to see 20 + 2 and The Tattooed Stranger

*March 15: Musicals*

 

INVITATION TO THE DANCE

YOLANDA AND THE THIEF

THOROUGHBREDS DON'T CRY

LITTLE NELLIE KELLY

 

I though all of these titles would eventually be released as pressed discs. It seems as if WB will dump most of their catalogue on MOD. Its unfortunate.

PT 109 was one of my sisters favorite films when she was a kid. THE LAST DINOSAUR I haven't seen in over 25 or 30 years! What is THE SQUEEZE about and who is in it???

A 2nd anniversary sale on the Archives runs from today through the 28th.

 

Five select films for $50, and save $5 on select multi-disc sets. With free ground shipping. This is similar to the Black Friday sale they had.

 

http://www.wbshop.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-WB-Site/default/Search-Show?cgid=WASINGLE&adid=0311WACAnnivEml

 

If you order $100 worth, use the code SAVINGS. It takes $20 off your order.

 

Don't see Don Juan on the list. : (

 

p.s. -- I called the contact line and they said WB pulled Don Juan from the website, but they didn't know why. Looking on the TCM shop site, it lists an April 22nd release date.

I assume *DON JUAN* had the same processing error as with *THE MAGICIAN* and *PRISONER OF ZENDA.* What is up with that? After one goof, it first happened with *BEAU BRUMMEL*, you would think that they would get it right the next time? Apparently not?

The site knocked me out of the Rewards Program and I don't know how to get back. Anything I put in my cart comes up list price. Anyone have any answers? Customer service claims sometimes this happens to people but does not know how to get it back. Meanwhile sent the site an e-mail. Do not want to pay list for these DVD's.

Yes, by one minute... :)

I ordered Rio Rita before I even posted it here...I was so excited !!

I have waited a long long time for this one - I admit I would have liked a pressed disc on this title but I said the same thing for the Green Slime..

I know the modern DVD efforts are that older classic titles as well as post 1970 titles that the people at WB do not think will sell well ( example Steel with Shaq) as pressed discs will be MOD

I disagreed with a few choices but ultimately it is nice to get them on DVD

I think movies like Green Slime, From Hell It Came, Doc Savage, Rio Rita , A&C Meet Captain Kidd should have been pressed discs...

And Warner could have had a great Noir set (just my humble opinion) with titles like

*The 2 Mrs Carrolls, Stranger on the 3rd Floor , & Where the City Sleeps* leading the way...as the big 3

Those 3 titles alone were better than anything on that 5th Film Noir set from Warner last year.

The Boy Friend is a definite buy for me. Been waiting a long time for this one.

 

Now, all I need is another 5 for $50 sale before I can afford it.

musicalnovelty,

 

Some three years ago they told me that these *Vita-phone Varieties* shorts were being restored, in advance of the Colleen Moore features *SYNTHETIC SIN,* and *WHY BE GOOD?* Those were supposed to be the next in line for the on-going Vita-phone project. So I hope that it is still the case? Apparently, the story on both of these films is that the prints that were found in Italy in 2003 had both once belonged to Antonio Moreno. They must have been found among the effects of his estate.
