    For those who don't already own these films on Blu, a great box of bargains. Should work out at street to under $10 per title.

    exact same thing I was thinking, I was hoping from the title that possibly this was some "new to blu Bogart"

    This would have been really exciting if they had added The Big Sleep, Key Largo and To Have and Have Not.

    Most fans probably have Casablanca and African Queen. So at least I'm not very excited.

    Dangit! I bought African Queen last month... Had I not, I would've thought of buying this set.

    Actually I'm glad that there is nothing new added. One of my pet peeves is being forced to re-buy titles I already have just to get something new. When they get around to putting out The Big Sleep and Key Largo I'd prefer either stand-alone releases or a box containing all new-to-Blu-ray releases.

    Already own Casablanca and The African Queen on Blu-ray.

    However, the inclusion of the 2 additional films for what I expect will
    be a $40 Amazon price is tempting.

    Me, too. When they do another Bogart set, I'd want ALL NEW TO BLU-RAY items. And they have plenty to choose from.

    I already bought the four individually (and got three of them again when I reviewed the 90th Anniversary Blu-ray box set.

    For a company that won't spend zilch on packaging or fanfare for HD versions of stuff they've ALREADY mastered in 1080 and put out there for streaming, they sure spend a lot repackaging the same old crap over and over again!

    These films are not "crap" no matter how annoyed you are.

    Or you could just buy both Maltese Falcon & Treasure of the Sierra Madre from Amazon today for a total of $26.50 and be done with it...

    I'm surprised Key Largo in particular is taking so long to get out.
