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

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 Thanks to Chamberlain’s and Massey’s able embodiment of the characters originally made famous by Lew Ayres and Lionel Barrymore, Dr.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!

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:

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

Hey what do you know, you can go meet Korg!


Blanket Quote for myself for all my postings from Feb 2014 and on

"i'm not shy to mention that i seem to be a major outlier on this forum. But i'm still highly boggled by some things posted here. But hey i can only be so critical but some things do bother me a bit, but to each their own. Even if it's odd conspiracies, not wanting to use terms correctly or just throwing hasty generalizations."

If the horse doesn't want to drink, i'm not going to lead them to water

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.screenar...URE-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.

Another TV series appears to be coming in the next few weeks, the 1972 TV series Search, the complete series on pressed DVDs.

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.

Why do you think it will be this week (as opposed to some future week) ?

And where does it mention 'pressed'?

While I would love both to be true, I didn't see that information listed.

The discs are visibly pressed in the posted sneak peak video when the DVD case is opened, silvery as opposed to black/purplish.  The banner ad for Search is now posted on the front page of the Warner Archive site and is included as the feature attraction with a new uploaded preview.

 

Found the order page.  Price is $49.99

Have not all the Archive TV series releases been pressed for the last year and a half? (Except for those ordered and duplicated on DVD-R from Amazon.)

Have there been exceptions where the Archive has recently released any TV series on DVD-R? I think someone at HTF said the Jimmy Stewart Show was DVD-R?

Have any of the Archive TV series released on pressed Discs actually gone off the replicated list, and are now only available as DVD-Rs?

Thanks for the link. I wasn't doubting you - I just mused the info you saw.

I have posted a question on the Archives FB page asking if Probe (the previously released pilot) would be included in this 'complete series' release. The posting, at this time, is unclear.

Have there been exceptions where the Archive has recently released any TV series on DVD-R? I think someone at HTF said the Jimmy Stewart Show was DVD-R? But that may be a surmise, based on an intransit preorder, because the show is not on the replicated list,(yet).

My copy of The Jimmy Stewart Show was DVD-R.

And their response was;

"Probe is available as a separate release - as such it was not included in order to contain costs and maximize quality."

False alarm on Race Street.  Seems they leaked the cover art prematurely and its actual date of availability remains unknown.

It'll probably be out in the near future.
