I dont think he mean crap that way, its just a term or expression, like same ol sh@@
Did they also mention if they were releasing a DVD version? The reason why I asked is I found a DVD version on Amazon with the same release date. I was going to pre-order this just in case, but I was kind of curious.
Obviously. I meant "crap" as in "crap on the customer" because you're too damned lazy to do anything new and exciting, but insist on trotting out the same old "masterpieces" over and over again until we all want to hurl. While other "masterpieces" are sitting in limbo. And, these are the ones you are, indeed, treating like "crap"!
Perhaps Warner is using this set as an opportunity to get rid of unsold discs, and drum up some interest in Bogart to help sales of future releases of his films.
As one who's been passing it around like the Russians were in Jersey, I breathed a little sigh of relief when I saw I have all of these.
Maybe. The African Queen and the latest version of Casablanca have been $7 as a double feature at amazon.ca a couple times this month (and now). It's all the other Bogies (that I already have on DVD) that are more interesting to me.
This set is a little late IMO, ought to have done it first, then make the discs available separately (from a business perspective I mean).
It would be great if that were the case. In addition to his well-known films coming to Blu, I'd love to see the Archive tackle his unreleased Warner films (which is most of his unreleased filmography) and press them as one big box for DVD.
Seems like another missed opportunity- repackaging isn't added value.
I have the collector boxes of Queen, Casablanca (both), and the single release of Falcon so this is a pass for me.
Had to catch my breath for a sec, thought maybe this would be the Bogie/Bacall set.
But, who knows; maybe we'll get a new Casablanca!
Yep, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
Except for those people who RAH referred to earlier:
I don't understand the contempt some show for repackaging films in bargain collections. I've taken advantage of many over the years. And I really can't buy into the argument that such issues somehow interfere with a studio's efforts to bring out previously unreleased films. One workflow is just marketing, another the application of different resources in restoration, mastering, etc.
While I would like new to Blu titles, these repackaged collections must sell or they would not keep doing them. More power to them making money to pay for other titles to come out.
Never mind my post, they changed the DVD to Blu-ray. I;m glad I did pre-order since I don't have any of these films and $35 is pretty good for those.

Looks good. I have all of these, but won't it make a great gift? Hopefully there'll be a Volume 2.
Have all of these, hope Big Sleep, Key Largo are coming up.
I own the four titles in that box also, but...
Yeah, these titles that are in the DVD-Tin-Box are on my wish list (High Sierra, Key Largo, To Have and Have Not, They Drive by Night and Dark Passage) plus The Big Sleep.
Nice would be also Dead Reckoning, In A Lonely Place, Sirocco and The Harder They Fall.
All four I own in a DVD-box set from the UK.
Did I mention The Desperate Hours?
We're No Angels is a must!
"Must" is right! "We're No Angels" is one of my all-time favourite Christmas movies, and the 2005 DVD is about as nice as DVD gets. It's a VistaVision production, and Paramount's transfer is splendid. To my eye, it looks Blu-Ray ready, or as close to Blu-Ray ready as "White Christmas" did in its 2-disc iteration. So, how about it, Paramount, Warner, Olive, Criterion, anybody?
Wasn't there some word that The Big Sleep was coming in 2014? Could've been some rumour though...
Since warners owns men's titles, they include "dead end" in a set. I love that one. (Bo nom)
