No Blu Ray listed. Another has them listed as $10.99. I have waited a long time for Wuthering Heights and thought they would go Blu on this. The others I have in DVD and Hans is due now in Blu.

Blu-rays at least for some of these should be coming later. Also, this DVD of The Best Years of Our Lives has additional extra features not on the MGM disc

I didn't know there was anybody left who still didn't have a copy! Seems like MGM had flogged both that one and Pride of the Yankees to death over the years.

And titles such as "These Three" haven't been available on any format since the 1980s.

I never got Wuthering Heights on DVD before it went OOP, even though it's one of my wife's favorites. I have a decent copy from a TCM broadcast I burned to DVD. But I'm not going to buy any of these in SD anymore. At this point classic releases like these must be in Blu or no sale for me.

I have them already on DVD, so a Blu-ray upgrade is also for me the only interest I have in these admitted classics. For those who didn't get them the first time around, however, I'm happy they will be availble for a reasonable price.

I expect blu-rays on these titles especially because these are the tentpole Goldwyn titles that have consistently proven themselves saleswise. Best Years of Our Lives has already been announced and I expect the other three to show up as well. One thing I'm curious about is if these are newly remastered or simply repackaged transfers from the old MGM discs.

Isn't My Foolish Heart with Susan Hayward and Dana Andrews a Goldwyn title? I'd really love to see this on DVD.
