    This is the news I had been hoping to read; besides being Judy Garland classics, all 3 are really, really good movies made by the best MGM craftsman, starring some of the most charismatic and talented actors and actresses of all time. I just know these WarnerArchive releases are going to be...

    At least some of the footage found in that German TV broadcast is out there; I just watched the longer version of the 1941 "Hallucination" scene on YouTube. The above-referenced movie-censorship site really does a spectacular shot-by-shot analysis and notes over 40 differences! Whether cuts...

    Wow, I had not been aware of that - virtually every One, Two, and Three Star reviews referenced the usage of the stills in disparaging terms. I attended the world premiere of the restored version at Radio City Music Hall back in 1983. The original 1954 premiere footage was shown before the...

    I'd buy every film on this list, plus one more very few talk about anymore, unfortunately: A Guy Named Joe.

    Now that the full The Thin Man series is released, I actually hold out hope WarnerArchive follows up with their non-Thin Man films: Manhattan Melodrama, Evelyn Prentice, Double Wedding, I Love You Again and Love Crazy.

    Three absolute must-buys. It's been years since I have seen Edge of Darkness but it was just terrific; a great wartime thriller with superb performances from Errol Flynn and Ann Sheridan.

    I wonder if the WarnerArchive will have anything special planned for the 100 anniversary of Judy Garland's birth, now just over 6 months away. I'd love to see blu-rays of The Clock, Babes In Arms, Babes On Broadway, Words And Music and Till The Clouds Roll By.

    Ooops, sorry Yes! Thank you! Tom Thumb was an MGM-released film and there's a WarnerArchive dvd of it.

    The Wonderful World Of The Brothers Grimm features Jesse Matthews, all but forgotten now but internationally known as the "British Fred Astaire" in the 1930's. So with that tenuous connection and since I am not sure as to which is the right thread, who has the rights to Waltzes From Vienna, her...

    Wow, what a spectacular list! SOME CAME RUNNING has long been one of my Holy Grails. It will be an even better viewing experience if the WarnerArchive does it justice; Vincente Minnelli really paid attention to the impact of color upon every scene. Almost all of the films are must-buys. I...

    In response to WarnerArchive's tweet announcing that Step By Step is now available on blu-ray, they were asked if it was true that a blu-ray of The French Line was being released next month. I have no idea why that person asked the question that way, but more Jane Russell on blu-ray is a very...

    Once again WarnerArchive is certainly unpredictable in their choice of releases.

    Time will tell indeed, because I have looked up classic films for years and I have not seen those semi-detailed "phantom pages" on Amazon. And I looked! I randomly searched a bunch of film classics (Random Harvest/Desperate Journey/Marie Antoinette/Words And Music, etc ) and once I got to the...

    Regime change or no regime change, the one consistency with the WarnerArchive is the absolute unpredictability of their new releases. The best part about Amazon replacing the WbShop is seeing where those releases rank in sales.....even the best of them barely crack the top 1,000 during their...

    Now that Chain Lightning is scheduled for a WarnerArchive release, I wonder if Black Legion will be the next Humphrey Bogart film eventually announced for a bluray release. The version playing on HBOMax now looks pretty good for a 1937 film, at least to my eyes.

    I wonder if Humphrey Bogart's Chain Lighting might be up for release soon. HBO MAX has a new mini-documentary to go along with it.

    The same happened with me, their email only referenced my larger, initial Friday order but did not include the second, smaller order I placed on the sale's last day. I sent an email asking about that issue after business hours and I received a response with a unique case number. So hopefully it...

    I just received an email saying that they were still working on my order, and th provided an order number. The issue is I ultimately placed 2 orders so one was not referenced.

    I "narrowed" my Wbshop.com cart to 34 titles. I will probably get about half of that number.

    Oh yes! I forgot about his brilliant work with the Rhino CD soundtracks, each one features several, sometimes many, archival gems. Some of those rare cds go for a good amount of money on Ebay. I too believe this does explain the sudden burst of amazing titles, some of which I will definitely...

    Well this is distressing news; his LinkedIn profile says he has been at Warners for 24 years and 1 month - mirroring the beyond spectacular run of laser disc, DVD and Blu-ray releases. Even besides the films, I have no doubt all of those outtakes, alternate versions, short films, etc. would have...

    Oh A TALE OF TWO CITIES and SOME CAME RUNNING are two of my favorites; I'd love to see them released on bluray. There ares 4 Elia Kazan films on that list, I wonder if they'll be doing a mini-box set. The Arrangement is one hell of an unusual film.

    Oh good The Mortal Storm and Tennessee Johnson! I was just looking at my collection of films on VHS to see what I can get on DVD-R during the next Warner Archive sale and The Mortal Storm was one of them. Tennessee Johnson is new to me, so that's a must buy.
