    The next TCM/Sony release is up on the TCM site; 4 Joan Crawford films from the 50s.

    Nice to finally get Autumn Leaves, Harriet Craig and Story Of Esther Costello on DVD though I wish the previously released Queen Bee had been replaced by They All Kissed The Bride and they could have called the set JOAN CRAWFORD AT COLUMBIA rather than JOAN CRAWFORD IN THE FIFTIES.

    I could have sworn that I already had Harriet Craig on DVD, but a quick check on the shelves proves that I don't. Maybe I made a DVD-R of itand have stored it somewhere else..

    Another good Sony TCM set. AUTUMN LEAVES is a gem, with one of Crawford's best performances, a sensitive early turn by Cliff Robertson--and a scene with a typewriter that's very Robert Aldrich, in a movie that's otherwise quite different.

    That would have made too much sense!

    Yeah, not sure why Queen Bee had to be included--the DVD is not even OOP! Maybe it includes a superior transfer, as the original DVD was below the quality standard set by current Sony discs.

    In the days of VHS I recorded the film off TV and ran that typewriter moment frame by frame to see how they did it. By cutting two bits of film together of course

    I got this set yesterday and I'm having problems with playback of Autumn Leaves. It works just fine up till around 1hr 22mins when it freezes. I can get past it by fiddling about with the FF or move on to the next "chapter" and return by rewinding to the point at which it freezes.
    It's a nuisance though.
    Is anyone else having any problems with this disc?

    Mine played fine . Maybe just a bad disc . They are usually pretty good about replacements .

    Funny. It plays fine now. Just a blip I guess.
