    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Lawrence of Arabia - in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Crawdaddy, That's quite a compliment, especially considering what RAH had to say about the Blu-ray back in 2012: "As to specifics, image quality in terms of overall resolution is other-worldly. Color is dead-on perfect. Shadow detail, superb, along with image steadiness. Grain structure...

    Stagecoach West TV Series 1960-61 New DVD Release!

    A Four Star series that I would like to see come to DVD is Michael Shayne, a private detective series starring Richard Denning that featured many well-known guest stars. I have about half of the episodes on bootlegs that vary in quality from pretty good to barely watchable.

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Damn Yankees – in Blu-ray

    A bit of "Damn Yankees" trivia. Although the film is based upon the Broadway musical of the same name, the musical is adapted from a novel called "The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant" by Douglas Wallop, published in 1954. The title of the book is significant because the New York Yankees had...

    The Sting 4K UHD Coming From Universal

    I can't quite match that, but I have a Panasonic Blu-ray player that's never been out of its box. It's there just in case. I also have a Sony DVD player that I've never used. I have the same model in my bedroom but the remote broke. When I went to price a replacement remote, I found that it was...

    Press Release Warner Archive Press Release: The Great Caruso (1951) (Blu-ray)

    When I was about ten years old I was looking through my parents' record collection and I came across a box set of 45 RPM Christmas carols by Mario Lanza, who I had never heard before. When he reached the finale of "The Lord's Prayer" his voice sent a shiver down my spine, the first time that...

    What's the last TV DVD/Blu-ray you bought?

    I got a good deal on the Mission Impossible original TV series set on Blu-ray at Deep Discount. I'm not crazy about the packaging but the episodes look and sound great.

    The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show and Underdog original cartoons

    "The Clover Boys" is sort of a parody of the early 20th Century juvenile book series "The Rover Boys," written by Edward Stratemeyer under the pen name "Arthur M. Winfield." Stratemeyer also created The Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, Tom Swift, and many others. In 1942 Warner Brothers also spoofed The...

    The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show and Underdog original cartoons

    For those interested in taking a deep dive into the subject, there is a book published in 2000 called "The Moose that Roared: The Story of Jay Ward, Bill Scott, a Flying Squirrel, and a Talking Moose" by Keith Scott. The book includes program synopses and voice credits for all of the Jay Ward...

    Blu-ray Review It Happened On Fifth Avenue Blu-ray Review

    I had one a while back that made it to New Jersey, but then was delivered to the Post Office in the next town south of me. They apparently couldn't figure out what to do with it, so they sent it back to New Jersey, where it was held for a few more days before they finally sent it to my Post...

    Blu-ray Review A Night in Casablanca Blu-ray Review

    I watched the Blu-ray a few nights ago and I agree that ClassicFlix has done a terrific job with it. There was a bit too much slapstick during the last half of the film for my taste, but there were plenty of laugh out loud moments so I am a happy camper.
