This set seemed to disappeared after Christmas 2010 and now seems to be available in a few places. It is available at an Amazon 3rd party seller for $69.99 and for-filled by Amazon. http://www.amazon.co...ion&tag=yjtv-20 At TCM shop for $89.99 http://shop.tcm.com/...4e716544c4d6bfb At WB Shop for $79.99 http://www.wbshop.co...cks&from=Search Be aware that some people mentioned when this was released in 2010 that Treasure of Sierra Madre was pressed with disc 2, the special features, being included but the movie was missing. Not sure if this was all sets and if this has been corrected.
