Warner Archives Discussion

Yes finally the Harlow collection. Now if we can get RED DUST and HOLD YOUR MAN released that would be all her MGM films on DVD. We may never get her early films released to DVD but at least we will have the films that made her famous.

Ha ha, it never fails. Give something they have been craving for, and they are right back with wanting more.

just when it seemed like the Warner Archive wasn't releasing anything more from the 30's, they knock it out of the park with their best set ever! alas, if only Red Dust were included, but this is still a phenomenal set at a great value. i'd love to see more like this, the Warner Archive is starting to look like the amazing DVD sets WHV released regularly during the DVD peak.

These are some good titles coming out in the next few weeks, unfortunately after the Archives usual 50% off sale. By the way I got an email the other day saying "Black Friday continues with 25% off!". Sorry, but that was what I once got as a discount for any Warner Archive release just for signing up for their email distribution list. My wallet remains closed until the Warner Archive discounts these cheap burn jobs 50% because that is what they are worth at the very most.

from my email this morning, it looks like the archive is re-packaging older releases into box sets similar to the Jean Harlowe collection. these are a much better deal than the individual discs, i wish i could trade in my Lon Chaney packaging for the set, since the image makes it look like they're slim cases too.

 

*The Tarzan Collection starring Lex Barker*

*TARZAN'S MAGIC FOUNTAIN* (1949) In the first of his Tarzan films, Barker must keep greedy outsiders from discovering a magical Fountain of Youth.

*TARZAN AND THE SLAVE GIRL* (1950) A vanishing tribe seeks to repopulate its numbers by kidnapping women - among those kidnapped: Tarzan's Jane!

*TARZAN'S PERIL* (1951) The arrival of gunrunners in the jungle can mean only one thing for Tarzan: trouble, and plenty of it!

*TARZAN'S SAVAGE FURY* (1952) English jewel thieves dupe Tarzan into being their guide.

*TARZAN AND THE SHE-DEVIL* (1953) In his final Tarzan film, Barker must rely on his elephant friends to battle ivory hunters that enslave tribesmen.

 

*The Tarzan Collection starring Gordon Scott*

*TARZAN'S HIDDEN JUNGLE** (1955) Gordon Scott makes his debut as Tarzan takes on a team of hunters posing as a film crew.

*TARZAN'S FIGHT FOR LIFE* (1957) Tarzan is captured by a witch doctor looking for the heart of a lion - or a jungle lord - for a tribal ceremony.

*TARZAN AND THE TRAPPERS* (1958) Tarzan takes on poachers and plunderers in this film culled together from three episodes of an intended TV series.

*TARZAN'S GREATEST ADVENTURE* (1959) Considered one of the best of all of Tarzan's film exploits, Greatest Adventure also features Sean Connery as the villain!

*TARZAN THE MAGNIFICENT* (1960) Scott's final swing as Tarzan includes a climactic brawl with Jock Mahoney, the next actor to play the role.

 

*Elizabeth Taylor: The Warner Archive Classics Collection*

*CYNTHIA** (1947) 15 year-old Elizabeth Taylor leaves behind her child star persona to play a lovely woman on the cusp of womanhood.

*CONSPIRATOR* (1949) 17 year-old Elizabeth Taylor's is joined by Robert Taylor in this atmospheric, early cold war spy thriller.

*LOVE IS BETTER THAN EVER* (1952) Taylor makes her screen transition from junior miss to romantic ingenue in this frolic directed by Stanley Donen (Singin' in the Rain).

*THE GIRL WHO HAD EVERYTHING* (1953) Now 21, Taylor packs power and pulchritude playing a pouty Kentucky belle with a penchant for bourbon and dangerous liaisons.

*RHAPSODY* (1954) Taylor strives for sweet harmony as a privileged young woman who must choose between the two musicians she loves. Charles Vidor directs.

 

*Lon Chaney: The Warner Archive Classics Collection*

*HE WHO GETS SLAPPED* (1924) Lon Chaney alongside Norma Shearer and John Gilbert.

*MOCKERY* (1927) In a striking performance, Chaney proves his talents were not confined to prosthetics and makeup.

*MR. WU* (1927) Lon Chaney essays dual characters as the sage Grandfather Wu and his grandson, the "Mandarin" Mr.Wu.

*THE UNHOLY 3* (1930) In his last film - and only Talkie - Chaney re-creates his famed Silent role, the scheming ventriloquist Professor Echo.

 

*Randolph Scott: The Warner Archive Classics Collection*

*BADMAN'S TERRITORY* (1946) Sheriff Mark Rowley (Scott) takes on a band of outlaws while searching for his missing brother.

*TRAIL STREET* (1947) Scott takes the badge of lawman Bat Masterson in this sagebrush saga of peace and justice.

*RETURN OF THE BAD MEN* (1948) U.S. Marshal Vance Cordrell faces down the Youngers, Wild Bill Doolin, Sundance Kid and more while trying to restore order.

*CARSON CITY* (1952) Scott is a man with a mission, building a railroad through the lawless land between Carson City and Virginia City, Nevada.

*WESTBOUND* (1959) Budd Boetticher and Randolph Scott's Westerns changed the genre forever, paving the way for Eastwood and Leone.

More 12/13 releases:

 

The Office Wife/ Party Husbands (pre-code)

 

 

I've have already listed the Taylor and Chaney titles below. I didn't list the Tarzan or Scott titles since I felt these weren't that important and these are reissues of titles already released. I am also wondering if these reissued titles are remastered.

Hello! Long time lurker and thought I would make a debut! I spend wayyy too much money on these DVDs, but haven't had a regret yet - I just want more! I was even considering asking WB for an empty slipcase of the Lon Chaney set for a nominal fee - just so the dvds would have a more appropriate home on the bookshelf! Crazy, eh?

 

 

 

 

 

By the way, did anyone notice that the "sample" clip for The Constant Nymph was "Andy Hardy's Private Secretary"? Someone at WB goofed and gave us a sneak peak! Hopefully this is an indication of an Andy Hardy set coming soon!

 

 

Lookin' forward to posting more! A great fan site and resource for classic cinema!!

 

 

cheers!

I'm glad they are finally getting around to releasing some more 30's Joan Blondell movies. With the exception of the TCM Collection Busby Berkeley set (which included 3 of her musicals), It's been a few years since one of her WB movies has been released on DVD. I'm definitely getting the I've Got Your Number / Havana Widows DVD. Both are among her better movies, and both also feature Glenda Farrell.

 

I'm also interested in the Dorothy Mackaill set with Party Husband / The Office Wife. I haven't seen Party Husband, but with a title like that it has to be good. I have seen The Office Wife, and it features some racy dressing/ undressing/ bathing scenes with Joan Blondell. It was her official screen debut too. (Her 2nd full-length movie, but the first to get released). I don't remember much else about the movie, but the few minutes Joan is on screen are well worth seeing if you are a fan. (or if you just want to see Joan Blondell kiss Dorothy Mackaill on the lips, which actually happens, for some reason.)
