I read that MGM will be releasing The Goldwyn Follies (1938), It's A Pleasure (1945), and A Song Is Born (1948) on DVD on April 4. I'm hoping this is a good sign, as it seems a long time since MGM released any old library title that wasn't a James Bond or a Pink Panther entry.

What's interesting is that some of these titles I believe are from the Samuel Goldwyn library, the same library where VAMPIRE CIRCUS, TWINS OF EVIL and HANDS OF THE RIPPER come from, which MGM owns the video rights to. If they're smart and what to continue on a roll, they could release them as part of would should be a massive (to make up for last year's drought) Halloween promotion.
