    It looks like those listings for the Rare Treasures discs are all from 3rd party sellers who likely separated them from the box set and are looking for a profit.

    I'll sell my rare treasures for $20 shipped with gift paypal if you don't mind me watching it once before I mail it. It's currently unopened.

    Steve, is Rare Treasures the new set that was just released with the extra disc of shorts and features?
    I have a friend who loves Stooges and i might take you up on this if it is.

    Just in case anyone was wondering I took him up on this and offered an extra $5 for the box and I received them from Mr. Satch today. I figured I'd save him from a barrage of PMs by letting everyone know.

    Wow ok, we'll good for you Bill. I posted immediately to the topic but I guess that wasn't the right way to say I was interested, oh well.

    Hi Paul!


    Just a F.Y.I: Being in Canada, this link currently takes me to the Canadian Amazon site, where the above is currently priced at $54.71 used! :P


    For me, the above highlights just how fortunate I was to be able to purchase the entire 20 DVD Ultimate Collection for under $32 Canadian (Shipping & Taxes included!), in January of last year!


    CHEERS! :)

    There's one important detail that's worthy of note. Starting with the 2013 pressings, Volume 7 no longer contains the 3D versions of SPOOKS! and PARDON, MY BACKFIRE, but only the 2D versions!


    I plan to keep my individual Volume 7 Set that I had previously purchased. Big thanks to Paul Mular for posting that update on his Amazon Review for THE THREE STOOGES: THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION: http://www.amazon.com/review/R1G31C6QWUZ87A/ref=cm_cr_rev_detup_redir?_encoding=UTF8&asin=B006WN5W5M&cdForum=FxUIR0EOOKPYZA&cdPage=14&cdThread=Tx2WOA937ZPPVM0&newContentID=Mx1S8TDNSVXJT7O&store=movies-tv#Mx1S8TDNSVXJT7O


    CHEERS! :)

    For those who want SPOOKS! and PARDON MY BACKFIRE in 3D anaglyph, THE THREE STOOGES COLLECTION: VOL. 7: 1952-1954 DVD Set can still be had at a very nice price on U.S. Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Three-Stooges-Collection-Vol-1952-1954/dp/B002MJV786/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1441492948&sr=8-1&keywords=the+three+stooges+volume+7


    CHEERS! :)


    Note: For Canadian isp connections, there may be redirection to Canadian Amazon, where the price isn't quite as nice, at the moment! :P


    Update: From what I've read in Amazon comments for this volume, getting the pre 2013 pressings that include the 3D versions of the aforementioned titles may unfortunately be a hit or miss proposition!

    As great as these Three Stooges Volumes look on DVD, I'm thinking of the possible fixes that could be incorporated into a Blu-ray Issue:


    1. While all 190 shorts already have 1080p scans, the two 3D shorts, SPOOKS! and PARDON MY BACKFIRE (Both 1953) could really benefit from improved 3D anaglyph scans, and this could also be an ideal opportunity to restore the correct sepia tint to the former.


    2. GOOF ON A ROOF (1953) could be issued in its originally 1952 filmed non matte 1.37:1 Academy Ratio. In addition, with the allowed added capacity that Blu-ray affords, Disc 2 of the Volume 7 set could easily accommodate both 2D/3D versions of the above aforementioned shorts, and both Academy & Widescreen versions of GOOF ON A ROOF without compromising BD Disc quality!


    3. FLYING SAUCER DAFFY (1958) could incorporate both original Stereo (Assuming it is extant!) and Monophonic releases!


    Honorable Mention: I would also prefer for the Sony Logo that follows the end of each short in most of the DVD volumes to be removed from a Blu-ray issue.


    CHEERS! :)

    Good luck getting that awful Sony logo off the end of anything. They plaster that junk on anything they distribute whether or not they had anything to do with the original release! I've developed a deft hand at hitting the "menu" button as soon as credits finish on any Sony product just to avoid that logo.

    Sony also needs to ensure a potential BD release has SDH (English subtitles).

    Great list, Tony.

    Hi Howie!


    It doesn't really bother me too much, as I usually play just 1 or 2 shorts at a time, though it would be nice to have the option of accessing the "Play All" feature without having to sit through the Sony Logo after every Three Stooges short!


    The Little Rascals 7 DVD Volumes by RHI/Vivendi are actually worse for this, as the RHI Logo precedes AND follows EVERY short, which gets very annoying when accessing the included "Play All" option! Worse still, there is a bit of "End of short" audio overlap with the RHI/Vivendi Logo after a few of these! :P


    CHEERS! :)


    Tony
