I am waiting to see if they bundles the Jolson & Taylor titles. Although it seems likely to me and would not want to pre-order if they do bundle.

I will be very surprised if they don't bundle the titles, maybe not right away, but shortly after they come out. I'm actually thinking of not buying any more individual titles, since you can get them for half the price when they get bundled.

Add one more title to this list:

 

STORY OF THREE LOVES

 

I intend to order the Sheridan & Lupino titles. I am going to take a chance and hope that they don't bundle these. Seems unfair if they were going to bundle (now called Valu Packs) they would do it right away. Would consider the Jolson titles at special prices. With the exception of CONSPIRATOR the Liz Taylor titles are not much, but again with special prices I might consider the set.

Went to check on pre-ordering STORY OF THREE LOVES, and it mysteriously disappeared from the site. It looked like IT'S A BIG COUNTRY did too, but when I requested the title individually it appeared. Someone seems to be playing around with the site. The same thing happened when MAMMY was listed about a week ago and that one also disappeared from the site.

 

And also add THE UNFAITHFUL to the disappearing pre-orders. What gives WB???

Hmm, that makes several Jolson films, along with Mammy. I wonder if they will put together a group set of the Jolson titles? If so, that is one set I will get.

I will wait until they decide to package the Jolson films together.

 

BTW, I goofed re THE UNFAITHFUL. This title was not up for pre-order as of yet. Someone also mentioned two additional Taylor films: BEAU BRUMMEL and RHAPSODY that could have been added to the Taylor pre-orders.

I just think they need to get their act together when they're updating their website with new titles, so it doesn't get confusing for customers who happen to be shopping at that moment.

Sigh, now "Mammy" is not in the collection. I wonder if Mammy was pulled because of racial overtones? It does have things like minstrel shows, and if they didn't include a warning like they did on the WB Looney Tunes sets, some could be offended.

Yesterday, THE STORY OF THREE LOVES was there with cover art and it disappeared that same day. And today they have added THE STORY OF MANKIND. I wonder why WB is playing musical chairs with these titles?

Uh oh, just got the following email from classicflix.com

 

NOTE: Mammy (1930) which we listed as released has been removed from Warner's site. We're still keeping it available as we expect for them to re-list it in the near future. Also listed briefly at WBShop yesterday, then pulled, was Rhapsody (1953) and The Story of Three Loves (1953). We haven't listed them yet, but will as soon as they're back up and available at Warner.

 

I bet it was because of racial problems. If they did send out any, I bet that will become the rarest of the Archives.

I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) there have been other titles that were listed, then un-listed, and eventually listed again.

 

It's probably just a temporary thing, but we'll see.

I doubt seriously if there was a racial problem for the release of MAMMY since the other Jolson films that are coming all have black face musical numbers. More likely someone just jumped the gun and listed the missing titles too soon.

 

I am still debating whether to order any new titles for fear they will put them in "Value Paks" shortly saving quite a bit of money for collectors.

Here's some news I just came across:

 

 

July 7 Warner passed the 200 mark for available titles on its Warner Archive Collection manufacturing on demand DVD service, adding 11 films, including Brian DePalma?s Get to Know Your Rabbit and Green Mansions with Audrey Hepburn.

 

Another 13 films will be available July 21, including six rare Al Jolson films, edging Warner closer to its stated goal of 300 films on the service by the end of the year. Warner said that the 1930 Mammy is not included, since it will be part of a Warner Archive Collection release later this year.

 

Warner will also packaged together six films staring Ann Sheridan and Ida Lupino for Warner Archive, dubbed the ?Women of Warner Bros.? collection. While single-DVD or download orders for Warner Archive titles cost $19.95, the ?Women? collection will have a price tag of $59.95.

THE STORY OF THREE LOVES is finally up for pre-order. I wonder when the Sheridan-Lupino set will be available?

Does this mean all pre-orders are not included? I will wait for the Lupino-Sheridan box set. Plus another title has been added: RHAPSODY. I am sure there will be a Taylor box set.

I believe it does not include any new or recent releases or pre-orders, just 150 titles. Think I'll pass on this one. Hopefully, Tuesday (7/21/) will bring some Value-Paks: Jolson, Taylor, Sheridan & Lupino.

Actually I think its the Taylor-Jolson DVD's that were the pre-orders that reverted to regular sale order today the 3rd Tuesday. And still no Value Packs. There are many titles now that I want, but won't spend $20 a pop.
