Which Hepburn films are you taking about? Because Breakfast at Tiffany's (BD and DVD), War and Peace (DVD), Sabrina (DVD) and Funny Face (DVD) are all will Warner now as they are sold at WBShop.com

 

Damnit, WB can't stop gobbling up every title these days.

How can we convince Disney to sign over their catalog titles to Warner?  :)

For those who have not seen it, the third film in this "Rio" trilogy by Hawks (thematic trilogy,actually) is RIO LOBO (1970) which has been out on Blu-ray for a while now from Paramount - this one opens with an excellent train robbery.

Hatari!'s cover looks a lot like Shaft in Africa dvd cover. Why didn't they just stick with the original poster.

Thank you, Warner. You're the only studio who gives a damn about classic titles on Blu-ray!

Mmmm...Fox?

Crazy talk! When it comes to this year's catalogue output, WB has been beaten to the punch by Fox! Boooo Warner, viva la Fox!

The Blu-ray versions. It was disclosed in the thread concerning the Warner/Paramount deal.

Also if you look at the packaging you will not see a Warner Bros logo on it as they do with the WB/Paramount titles. Just the Paramount logo. Just because WB Shop sells them does not mean they are producing them. WB agreed to sell Paramount titles on their web site that were not in the WB/Paramount agreement.

It's an excellent Blu-ray disc too!

WB absorbed Paramount stock on these titles and put a "distributed by Warner Home Video" sticker over the original barcode.

Alex,

 

They were posted a mere 6 posts above yours on the same page.

 

Nonetheless, I have reposted the links below.  Want to thank all of you who preordered using those links.  Going to preorder my copies as soon as I complete this post.

Check the past thread concerning the Warner/Paramount agreement. The Hepburn titles were not part of the deal. Warner only got 600 titles.

I love hearing the story told by James Caan on working with Wayne on El Dorado and how Wayne always got him in trouble with Howard Hawks the director.  One time, Caan got so pissed off at Wayne that he was getting ready to slug him when Mitchum intervene and stopped him. 

Ha, that would have been a quick trip to lights-out city for Jimmy Caan.  He indeed lucky Mitchum stepped in.

Allen, I'm sure everyone reading this thread is bored to tears over our argument, but here is a picture of the copy of Breakfast at Tiffany's I purchased from Amazon earlier this year.  'Nuff said.IMG_0074.JPG

I'm going to give this to you until I find the thread and post where at the Paramount HTF meeting last year one of the Paramount executives told an HTF member that the Hepburn movies were not included and the Wayne films were.
