    The inclusion of Greystoke on that link is a mistake. The sister Warner Archive "replicated" page on WBshop.com doesn't include Greystoke or any of the other blu-rays in that category since it's a given all of the blu-rays are replicated.

    An update on the Grant and Chinook Vol 2 Collection. I just got my replacement disc for this and it is indeed the right one now with the correct movies. So there should be no more issues when ordering this item.

    My Grant/Chinook disc says Volume 2. I'm not able to spin it until late tonight so I will assume its correct.

    The problematic discs have the right Vol 2 disc art, but contain the Vol 1 movies. When you can, load up the menu to see if it has the right movies.

    There are four movies left in the Kirby Grant & Chinook series. I read online somewhere that the last title in the series, YUKON VENGEANCE, is not owned by Warners, because years ago it was sold to NTA/Republic. If that is true, I guess that means it may be with Paramount.

    Has the WB Archive Facebook confirmed this? I was hoping for all four remaining movies on Vol. 3.

    Looked up Chinook at IMDB. Chinook was "The White Shadow" in the Disney Mickey Mouse Club serial: "Corky and the White Shadow". I think I spotted him, or a relative, on an episode of "Tales Of Wells Fargo" or maybe it was "Bat Masterson"?

    Back in the '70s and '80s, I worked at a PBS station and later a local cable outlet and programmed films from the NTA library and we did include YUKON VENGEANCE as one of our B-western series features. It's a shame that it will probably not be released as it is my favorite of the series with stunt great David Sharpe doubling Kirby Grant and former Republic B-western star Monte Hale as the bad guy. If anyone would be releasing this, it would be Olive Films probably and it's not included on Olive's future release list.

    Thanks for confirming that NTA connection, Mr Bailey. Maybe the WB Archive can still make a deal to get YUKON VENGEANCE.

    David Sharpe also doubled mounties in the Republic mountie serials and the Renfrew series. I wonder if he had his own mountie outfit?

    Are there any current coupon codes for Warner Archive titles? I'd like to purchase a couple Jack Benny films and possibly others.

    AHEAD OF TODAY'S ANNOUNCEMENT....




    Warner Archive Collection New Releases http://l.email-warnerbros.com/1x1.dyn?0nEGgqr-C-XlGh230TV6begxU=0 [​IMG] [​IMG] WARNER ARCHIVE HOMENEW RELEASESBESTSELLING DVDsFORWARD TO A FRIEND [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] DR. KILDARE, THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (1962-63) America’s favorite intern, Dr. James Kildare (Richard Chamberlain), returns in the second season of his smash hit NBC series alongside mentor Dr. Leonard Gillespie (Raymond Massey). Thanks to Chamberlain’s and Massey’s able embodiment of the characters originally made famous by Lew Ayres and Lionel Barrymore, Dr. Kildare soared to smash hit heights. Adding sizzle to the second season is a scorcher of a special full color episode, “The Burning Sky”, with guest star Robert Redford playing an arrogant medical student who loses his nerve during a raging forest fire! Other illustrious guest stars making the rounds of Blair General Hospital in this 34-Episode, 9-Disc Collection include Carroll O’Connor, Peter Falk, Robert Culp, Mary Astor, Gloria Swanson, Bill Bixby, John Cassavetes, and Leonard Nimoy! [​IMG] BILL ELLIOTT DETECTIVE MYSTERIES (1955-57) Superstar cowboy actor “Wild Bill” Elliott traded in his boots for gumshoes at Allied Artists for a series of crackling crime dramas playing Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department detective lieutenant Andy Doyle whose dogged determination and canny mind lead him past the obvious suspects to nab the real killers before fade-out. Unhinged war veterans, not-so-innocent blind men, baby racket blackmail, kidnapped cons and careless stranglers all appear in intrepid lieutenant’s case files. Tough guy character actor Don Haggerty appears in the final three films as sidekick Sgt. Mike Duncan. Two disc, Five-film collection includes: [​IMG] [font="arial; font-size: 12px; color: #071c21; font-weight:bold"]DIAL RED “0”[/font] (1955) A traumatized vet triggers a citywide manhunt when he goes AWOL from the bughouse and his soon-to-be-ex-wife gets bumped off. 16x9 Widescreen [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [font="arial; font-size: 12px; color: #071c21; font-weight:bold"]SUDDEN DANGER[/font] (1955) Lt.

Andy must figure out why before he can figure out who. 16x9 Widescreen [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] MUHAMMAD ALI’S GREATEST FIGHT (2013) Stephen Frears directs this all-star docudrama that looks at the biggest fight of Muhammed Ali’s life — the one he fought outside the ring. When Ali was drafted into the Vietnam War at the height of his boxing career, his claim to conscientious objector status led to a controversial legal battle that rattled the U.S. judicial system right up to the highest court in the land. Starring Christopher Plummer (as Justice John Harlan), Frank Langella (as Justice Warren Burger), Ed Begley, Jr. (as Justice Harry Blackmun), Barry Levinson (as Justice Potter Stewart) and Danny Glover (as Justice Thurgood Marshall). 16x9 Widescreen [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] MISS YOU CAN DO IT (2013) This uplifting HBO Documentary Film chronicles the efforts of Abbey Curran, a former Miss Iowa USA and the first woman with a disability to compete in the Miss USA Pageant, and eight girls with various disabilities as they participate in the Miss You Can Do It pageant. Created in 2004 by Curran (who has cerebral palsy), Miss You Can Do It offers girls with special needs the opportunity to be celebrated and not defined by what the world sees on the outside. 16x9 Widescreen [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] If you’re headed to Wizard World’s New Orleans Comic Con Feb. 7–9, be on the look out for Korg himself, Jim Malinda. Korg: 70,000 B.C. was one of Hanna-Barbera’s few live-action Saturday morning TV series about a family of Neanderthals trying to make it in a harsh world. Jim will be in Artist Alley to chat about being a pre-historic poster boy on the screen as well as touring schools around the country!

    Chain of Evidence is pretty ho-hum and Sudden Danger is terrible. I think I'll pass on the Bill Elliott box, but it's always nice to see some noir in the mix.

    Greatest Fight is an unsung gem with a great cast but you can probably watch it on HBO on Demand.

    It appears the Archive is finally entering the soundtrack arena as I just received an e-mail from Screen Archives Entertainment annoucing new releases and the original soundtrack to The Wizard of Oz is being rereleased under the Warner Archive banner-

    http://www1.screenarchives.com/title_detail.cfm/ID/26677/THE-WIZARD-OF-OZ-ORIGINAL-MOTION-PICTURE-SOUNDTRACK/

    I hope they'll consider picking up where they left off with Rhino Handmade about 10 years ago and start releasing OST's of films that haven't been released yet such as High Society, Les Girls and so many others.

    Now that it is Tuesday, we can safely conclude that Search will be released this week.

    However, glancing the site today it's very pleasing to note that this week the Warner Archive is releasing the largest wave of single films in many many months. In addition to pre-orders that were already listed on the site for the past week (Brother Rat, Brother Rat and Baby, and Mystery in Mexico) it includes Norma Shearer & Frederich March films Smilin' Through (1932) and The Barretts of Wimpole Street (1934), Glenn Ford's Dear Heart (1964), late George Raft noirs Nocturne (1946), Red Light (1949), Race Street (1948) and the noir Roadblock (1951).

    In addition to all this, James Cagney's Winner Take All (1932) is up for preorder for 2/28.

    That Smilin' Through is from the early 1930s...the 1941 was Jeanette MacDonald.

    Ooh, Nocturne and Race Street are terrific! Roadblock is kind of meh, and Red Light is a mixed bag of great and not-so-hot.
