Good news is always welcome. And this is great news.

It's worth it just for the truly remarkable PHENIX CITY STORY.

Wow pressed discs. The depression is over.  Thank you Warner Bros for a new classic film  box set on pressed disc with remastered picture. I will be buying this set. These are all films that I have never seen. That is also unusually as I am a classic film buff who watches many hours of TCM and still misses theaters like the Regency in NYC which showed the great classics on the big screen.  One of the sad victims of home theater.

I will buy this set, too; however, I am just a little disappointed 'The Devil Thumbs a Ride' did not make the cut.

Alas, Warners lost the rights to this several years ago.

 Wow, what a great set!

If I were king, er, queen, I would order WHV to release a Dick Powell noir set with Murder My Sweet, Cornered, Right Cross and Cry Danger.

Who owns the rights to Pitfall now?

Really?  That is very interesting.  Maybe that also explains why it has been so long since the film has been aired on TCM.  The last time it was aired on TCM (a few years ago, I think), I was insufficiently versed in film history to  think to capture the airing on DVR.  Of course, now I wish I had.  Also, of course, I continue to make the same mistake.  Just a week or two ago, on a Saturday morning, TCM aired a nifty little western, previously unknown to me, called 'Tension at Table Rock'.  Once I saw the film was being aired, I immediately wished I had captured the airing on my DVR.

Am I dreaming?  Is this actually an announcement for a boxed set of pressed discs?

I'll check back in a few hours and make sure that I'm not in fantasy land.

Excellent news.  Nice to see Warner Bros. releasing more classic material; especially film noir.

Fidelity to the source should always be the goal for Blu-ray releases.

Finally!  I figured WB had abandoned the noir sets.  I'm all over this!
