I purchased Love Letters, and while the print isn't perfect, it isn't horrible.  My only complaint: there's a two-three minute sequence where it sounds as though the actors are talking inside of a fish bowl.  After receiving a second DVD copy with the same sound glitch, I'm beginning to wonder if it's the sound elements and not the DVD.

I rented Flesh and Fantasy recently from Classicflix. Discovered that it was a PAL->NTSC standards conversion. Thankfully, I bought the PAL DVD.

Just picked up THIS DAY AND AGE, one of a gaggle of 1933 Paramount titles "condemned" by the then-vocal Legion of Decency, due in part to a scene featuring vengeful high school students dangling a thuggish Charles Bickford over a pit filled with rats.  Picture quality's soft in parts but it's well worth it to get these Paramount rarities out of Universal's vaults.

 

Apart from the plot of students appointing themselves defenders of the peace, and an exceedingly implausible (and far too long) final stretch, the curiosity factors include its director (Cecil B. DeMille of all people -- though you'll see DeMille-an touches in that long-winded final stretch I mentioned) and a very young John Carradine as a school principal barely older than the actors playing his students.
