This set would be a great way for those who don't want to pay those prices to get them all at a reasonable price.



Very true, the first three titles are readily available at Amazon.

Bummer. Went to put my order in for the Jean Arthur collection and was told 'Sorry, at this time we are only shipping to US.' I know i've ordered from them before (Cary Grant) so don't understand why I can't get a piece of this... hopefully this is a short-lived problem because I won't be buying them when/if the next run is just dvd-rs...

How is the packaging? Slim cases? Foldout style packaging?

Do the TCM sets have a reputation for using burned discs?

Only the RKO Lost & Found set, House Across the Bay, and Sundown. Everything else from the TCM Vault label was originally released pressed. However, presumably after a limited pressed run, they are sold MOD.

I've often used them instead of the TCM site and have never had a problem.

Do you have a link for the Noir set. I received a coupon good in my email today that if you order at TCM shop by nov 13, you get 10 percent off 50 or 15 percent off 75 or 20 percent off a hundred with coupon code "SAVE." But I can't find it to order.

I wonder if I can call the Turner shop and order on the phone. Moviesunlimited gives a product number on their site. I wonder if they match on the turner shop. I might try before the 13th. Thanks for your answer.

Schilling & Lane. I was sure such a set was listed for issue or was issued but then later I could no longer find any reference to it and I could get no response from the places I had seen it listed. Rather strange. I guess I have all the Three Stooges material and over all the quality is superb(video & audio). The none Three Stooges were shown on early Australian TV under a generic title: Hilarious Hundreds. I got to see Keaton, Andy Clyde, Langdon etc. The Stooges were in the package but were butchered. They would show one sort of complete and then show the second in the same 30mins spot with ads(less ads then allocated). This meant the second one was heavily butchered to fit. I went to a Catholic boys' college for Year 7-up and one of the kids in my class had a father at the station and used to bring matchboxes to school with 16mm frames or strips from these Stooges shorts. He wanted to go into TV and later, when I was working, I came across him near the same school filming a car accident in the pouring rain and it was for same TV station that butchered those films.

But there were lots of other shorts besides the series we are talking about that I have seen little of that Columbia handled, even if on distribution(unfortunately they had too much on distribution where the rights have reverted elsewhere along with the chance of clean restoration or anything else). There were certainly musical gems right back to 1929.


We can live in hope.

Just as an FYI, Movies Unlimited is offering a THANKSGIVING code that gives you 20% off. It would appear that it works on pre-orders because I just applied it to the upcoming Bogart set and got it knocked down to $35.99.
