    Very happy to finally get Susan Skoog's WHATEVER on DVD, a real gem. Praying that it will be in 16x9 and not just a port of the VHS master.

    December 3rd releases according to TheDigitalBits:

    Passions - (Not sure if this is the 1984 TV movie because IMDB lists Warner Bros. as a production company)
    Help Me, Darling - (I think this is the 1969 Italian film Amore mio aiutami a.k.a. Help Me My Love but I'm not sure)
    My Brother Anastasia (1973)
    The Belle of Broadway (1926)
    Pirates of Tripoli (1955)
    Elizabeth Taylor: Auction of a Lifetime (2012) - (No IMDB Entry)
    Salvage 1: Hard Water (1979) - (The first two episodes of Season 2, apparently)

    Also, I don't know what happened to November announcements; looks like they went from October straight to December.

    I'm on Sony's Press Site. They haven't uploaded any info for any November MOD releases.

    Does anyone on this site have any contact with Sony/Columbia ? If so would you check to see if they plan to release the Joan Crawford war time movie-They All Kissed the Bride on MOD. With Warner Archives' Facebook page saying that they are remastering her unreleased early 1930's MGM titles......Kissed the Bride...would be just about the last worthwhile title left to become available (I know LETTY LYNTON).

    I keep hoping to see a MOD of the rare 1962 Columbia rave-up TWO TICKETS TO PARIS, which stars Joey Dee and the Starlighters, and Charles Nelson Reilly. They've released several "youth" themed MODs, so maybe we'll see that title someday.

    Nice to see them speeding up a bit with the growing lists. I know they aren't WB, but a good number of batches like that a month is still a nice start for them to get deeper into their library.

    The Chase set is an easy buy... I've been hoping for it ever since the first volume came out.

    Hopefully, volume two sells well and they dig deeper into their shorts library. The Harry Langdon series and Andy Clyde series would probably be next on most wish lists. Langdon's series probably could be finished off in two discs, but Clyde appeared in 79 shorts at Columbia, second only to the Three Stooges (190).

    Sony still has some other Chase-related shorts, titles he wrote or directed for others in the unit. Some of those have been released (the Three Stooges, the Smith & Dale short on Vol 1) but there's several others that haven't been.

    THE COMIC is an excellent transfer and one hell of a film.

    I've always liked it, but I haven't seen it in a long time. I'll have to get this release.

    Any word on the Columbia cartoons from the 1930s and '40s? They did a series called "Color Rhapsodies" (a play on Merrie Melodies and Silly Symphonies) that included one of the most beautifully designed cartoons I've ever seen, "The Merry Mannequins" (1939), directed by Ub Iwerks. I'd love to see DVD collections of these cartoons.
