Certainly not trying to down grade the talents of Mr. Neeson, we get a great collection of 10 of his films from Fox, but can't get the remaining Tyrone Power, Betty Grable or Alice Faye titles.  If only the Golden Age of DVD lasted a couple years longer.  Sigh.

Lame, I say. Are any of these debuts? This is what the catalog market has come down to on DVd at the studio level, rehashes and repackagings...

Pretty much, yeah. The studios' combined logic seems to be - "Hey, let's put our existing films into fancy new box set collections! People will buy them!". Evidently people must, otherwise they'd stop re-releasing the same films over and over.

Well, I'm not exactly overwhelmed by this collection, however if Rob Roy is remastered, I might give it some thought.

"... if Rob Roy is remastered, I might give it some thought." As if...:)

Seems like they are digging deep into the MGM vault for some of these titles.  I guess what I mean is that in both HIGH SPIRITS and THE BOUNTY, Mr. Neeson is far down the cast list, especially HIGH SPIRITS.  Can I take a guess that this is the complete work of Mr. Neeson for Fox and MGM?

I'd hardly call "High Spirits" a Liam Neeson film. His role is definitely supporting.

No Schindler's List?


Not worth it, at all...

[quote]Originally Posted by battlebeast [url=/t/314752/tcfhe-press-release-the-liam-neeson-film-collection#post_3850894]  SCHINDLER is a Universal Picture and this just covers the MGM (Orion) and Fox years.  Yawn


This sure is a let down from the usual Fox end of year collections.  I remember Ford At Fox, Mel Brooks-Blu, Planet Of The Apes-Blu, and the great Murnau, Borzage and Fox sets.  Last year's Kazan set was some what a let down with all the re-issues.  za'ee

IMHO, if you want to put out a person's ouvre in a nice set, you have to give ALL of their BEST works, and yes, releasing PREVIOUSLY UNAVAILABLE films is very nice. The ONLY films in the Neeson set that I see worthy of an ouvre set are Kinsey and Rob Roy.


I have the Murneau and Borzage at Fox set (I paid $200 for ONE FILM (Grumble)), and although they did a great job, I still don't like the ungodly packagaing they choose...


I have the Mel Brooks set on DVD, Was something different about it on Blu?


was The Twelve Chairs new to DVD when the set released?
