Great news about TORCH SONG. A truly hideous film....and I love it. I hope it's properly framed in widescreen.

TORCH SONG wasn't a widescreen film. It was released in 1953, shot before widescreen was much of an issue. I just hope they properly restored it because the 1990 Laserdisc was a terrible mess made from a color-fluctuating CRI that was in abominable condition - yet the Technicolor trailer on the disc looked GREAT! LOL

Very glad to see that FLAMING ROAD is being included - another gap in my Curtiz DVD collection gets filled!

I knew FLAMINGO ROAD was going to be one of them. George Feltenstein mentioned that it would be in one of his chats.

TORCH SONG is a camp classic for sure and worthy of inclusion.

2007/2008?? Damn that could be as late as February or March. I'm hoping it's in December though. Warners said it was all ready, but they were just working out some kinks.

There is only 2 things that I have to complain about.

1.To many of her movies from 40s ( if "A Woman's Face" is gonna be in the set) Would be much more fun I they mixed her movies from her heydays in the 30s with her later ones from 40s 50s

2. When they gave us Joan & Bette vol.1 Warner made the impression that the boxes would match together and Bette will get her vol.3 next year when we will get vol.2. I relly hope they are planning a vol. 3 for Joan right now. If they can release "Trog"(the most hated Joan movie) they sure can give us The Last of Mrs. Cheyney (1937), Paid (1930), Today We Live (1933), Goodbye, My Fancy (1951), No More Ladies (1935),Our Dancing Daughters (1928) The Shining Hour (1938) I Live My Life (1935) Mannequin (1937) ect...and the rest of her movies With Clark Gable

I know I sound like a whiny child, but I am ofcourse happy that we are gonna get a vol.2

Well I'm sure we'll see more Crawford in the next Gable set, too. It would be nice if they put a films like Laughing Sinners, Possessed or Chained (no VHS release) in his set. Dance, Fools, Dance and Our Modern Maidens will most likely be in future Forbidden Hollywood sets.

btw I'd prefer a solo release of The Last of Mrs. Cheney. That way they could inlcude Norma Shearer's version and Greer Garson's 1951 remake, The Law and the Lady.

I'm also hoping that the other 2 titles will be her 30s films...those are the ones I've really been waiting for. And the silents, of course...yes, a TCM Archive set would be great!

I checked out that opening link and saw absolutely nothing about a forthcoming DVD set! Where is the proof- can someone give me a REAL link to an actual annoucement of what films will be on the second Crawford set?
Bring "The continuing story of PEYTON PLACE" home on DVD: the one that started it all- from Dallas and Dynasty to Desperate Housewives and Gossip Girl!!! Starting this May, see the legendary saga starring Mia Farrow, Ryan O'Neal, Barbara Parkins, and Oscar-winner Dorothy Malone on DVD thru...

In the meantime, I was a little surprised that Warner included "Reunion in France" in their recent "John Wayne Film Collection" as it is much more of a Joan Crawford vehicle than a John Wayne film. Since Warner does not mix previously released titles with new releases in their box sets anymore, fans can tide themselves over with that one and not have to worry about a double dip with any speculative future Crawford set.

I definitely think it was shot with widescreen intentions.
