That really is _awesome_ news, Edge - I know many Audrey Hepburn fans have been waiting a long time for Green Mansions to be available. :D

According to one poster on DIgitalbits they mention that THE UNFAITHFUL, THE STORY OF THREE LOVES, BEAU BRUMMELL, THE GIRL WHO HAD EVERYTHING and some other Liz Taylor titles I can't recall that are coming up shortly on the Archives. Want to see more Jane Powell musicals.

If it is the silent Beau Brummell with Barrymore, that is already on the Archives. Came out around the 15th.

Its the Liz Taylor film. Not really interested in many silent films with the exception of the ones by King Vidor.

It might be a situation like with Bright Leaf, which was mentioned a few times but didn't get added to the WBshop for a while.

 

I'll keep an eye out for when those titles like The Unfaithful become "officially" available.

 

Oh and I finally got the Coop set. Guess I shouldn't be disappointed the WAC sets don't come with their own case, at least we get them with 50% off from the regular price.

There probably will be more titles announced next week. The Cooper set does not interest me at all even with the big discount.

That would be nice, even if on the website they said they would be announcing new releases on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month. It looks like they're not actually holding to that.

I was just in the site and they have placeholders set up for a few more groupings:

 

Cary Grant collection 5 DVDs $49.95

Crime Dramas 5 DVDs $49.95

MGM Musicals of the 1940s 5 DVDs $49.95

Westerns of the 1950s 6 DVDs $59.95

Just checked the site. No details yet on these discs nor will the site let you pre-order. Wondering which MGM musicals will be in this set.

All of these new sets are going to be titles that are already available individually, right?

Just checked the site again and all the sets are previously released discs that are now bundled. A big disappointment. But at least I will be spending less money. I already have several of the MGM musicals. MEET THE PEOPLE (pased on this one) and TWO GIRL AND A SAILOR are pretty awful. I do like BROADWAY RHYTHM and LUXURY LINER.

*Has anyone seen these films*

*Johnny Eager*

*The Hard Way*

*The Veredict*

They all sound good to me but having never seen them any feedback would be GREAT !

I would highly recommend JOHNNY EAGER (early film noir with good performances by Turner & Tayor and anything with Ida Lupino is good. Lupino won the NY Critics Award for her role in THE HARD WAY. I don't know what The Veredict is. Do you mean THE VERDICT?

I have to beg to differ on TWO GIRLS AND A SAILOR. :) It has a charming cast and I feel it is quite entertaining, although it's not one of the top-level Technicolor MGM musicals. My now-14-year-old daughter loves it so much she watched it over and over since she was very little, and it definitely helped her develop a love for classic movies in general.

 

Just another POV for anyone who might be considering that one!

 

Best wishes --

I love musicals, and I love both Gloria DeHaven and June Allyson, but this one has a paper thin plot which was padded out with some mediocre musical numbers. Lena Horne stated she hated singing "Paper Doll" which is really a song for a man. And Jimmy Durante seems to do the same routine in every picture he made for MGM. The only musical number I did like was Allyson & Harry James performing THE YOUNG MAN WITH A HORN which was reprised about 10 years later in THE OPPOSITE SEX. TWO GIRLS AND A SAILOR was strictly for audiences during the World War II years and they probably ate it up and anything else the studio put out, but personally I was bored. At least Technicolor would have helped. DeHaven comes off much better in BROADWAY RHYTHM and its unfortunate she never became a major star. Maybe its because she was put in so much drivel by the studio. On a grade scale from 1 to 10, I would have to rate this musical an 8, not exactly a classic by any means.

Interesting...the Cary Grant, Crime Dramas, MGM Musicals of the 1940s, and

Westerns of the 1950s collections are now not showing on the site. Maybe they were just preparing the site for these for July 1st and we just caught an early glance.

Hmm, when I wrote that post, I looked at the items costing more than $20 section and only 5 items were listed. Now they are back up to 9, so that includes them. So they must have changed the site since I looked. And I just got an email announcing the sets...but not the Westerns.

Just visited the site. Some of the titles that we'd mentioned as being available now are actually available for pre-order and will be released on 7/7. They include two titles that I don't think were previously mentioned, Get to Know your Rabbit and Who's Killing the Great Chefs of Europe.

 

These are the titles that are currently listed as pre-orders:

Get to Know Your Rabbit

Green Mansions

Hard Way, The

Juke Girl

Man I Love, The

Moon is Blue, The

Nora Prentiss

Who's Killing the Great Chefs of Europe

 

They're also currently offering free ground shipping on orders of $60 or more, although the small print says "offers and coupons may not be combined" and "offer may be withdrawn at any time".

Although I am not a fan of Jolson, MAMMY has a Technicolor insert and I am wondering if it will be in this release.

My guess is they will use the same video master that was used for the Laserdisc. (I think this was included in the Al Jolson LD set, but I will check to make sure)
