    You can also add two Buster Keaton MGM talkies to the mix - Parlor, Bedroom, and Bath and Speak Easily.

    I'm happy to see another Errol Flynn title even though it isn't one of my more wanted films. Still, much like The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex (which I screened the other night and it is indeed a magnificent release), I'll be happy to make it a day one purchase. Here's to seeing Captain...

    The two musicals I'm most interested in are Good News and Three Little Words. I'm also looking forward to In the Good Old Summertime.

    This might be a totally dumb question, but has anyone else had issues or not been able to stream the WAC podcasts lately? I went to a few of my go-to websites for streaming podcasts, but I can't get the WAC podcast to stream on any of them. Other podcasts load as normal on these sites. It's just...

    Have the Warner Archive people ever said how well The Sea Hawk sold?

    With a remastered version of Libeled Lady hitting HBO Max, perhaps there's going to be a wave of William Powell features with the WAC. Libeled Lady, Life with Father, and Mister Roberts would make for a strong month of announcements.

    It's not really a matter that it's a bad film on a technical level but more a matter that the film is rooted in the historiography of the 1940s concerning the Civil War and Reconstruction.

    Given the flack that WB and HBO Max received recently over Gone with the Wind, it is weird and perhaps even ironic that a remastered edition of Tennessee Johnson would be added to HBO Max and potentially released on blu-ray by WAC. It is indeed a reasonably well made movie, but don't go into it...

    I wouldn't be surprised if WAC plays catch-up this coming December.

    That's very possible as TCM has eclipsed AMC in almost every possible way during the past two decades. That in itself is remarkable as TCM was in the underdog position when it started. So while TCM may not have started it, it has arguably perfected it.

    How about a musical remake of Sunset Boulevard (yes, I know it was actually done) but with Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney in the Gloria Swanson and Erich von Stroheim roles? Van Johnson perhaps in the William Holden part? Edit: upon further thought, I take back Van Johnson. If we're talking...

    Let's be honest: Bunny O'Hare starring Greer Garson and Walter Pidgeon would have been a train wreck, but I'd think most of us here would be eager to watch it at least once. ;)

    A few comments: 1. To be honest, I was underwhelmed by this month's selections from WAC. However, I view that as more of a reflection on me rather than WAC. It's simply a matter that none of my top wants were among the announcements. That doesn't mean that WAC is releasing bad films. To be...

    The moment I saw the release announcement for "The Bad and the Beautiful" I knew a lot of people were going to be pleased. I've had the film on my DVR for some time so perhaps now is the time for me to watch the film. If I like it enough, I'll pick up the blu-ray. The question that I'm...

    "Kings Row" is one of my most desired titles.

    Thanks for the comments. I used to be something of a Don Quixote figure battling against the windmills, but a few months back while in my home office I started looking at my three large bookcases. The biggest of them has nothing but books, and the other two have mixtures of books, DVDs, and...

    Please do not interpret my words as being harsh or cynical, but I've come to accept that the WAC blu-ray line is not likely to ever make a significant dent upon my list of WB/MGM/RKO classics (mostly pre-1950) that I want to see upgraded to blu. We are quickly coming upon the fifth anniversary...

    If Errol Flynn is in a few of them, I'll gladly agree! (BTW - happy 109th birthday Mr. Flynn!).

    Still waiting for WAC to give "42nd Street" some 1930s siblings..........

    I'll predict nothing from before 1940 again as well. "42nd Street" has to be feeling quite lonely.

    Another month without Errol Flynn or anything pre-1940, but the selections aren't bad at all nonetheless.

    I most definitely agree about Errol Flynn. Bring on Captain Blood, The Sea Hawk, Charge of the Light Brigade, Gentleman Jim, etc. I have been hoping that WAC will give Flynn the treatment it has shown to Humphrey Bogart. For that matter, I've been dismayed about the lack of pre-1940 classics. In...
