    Go to Amazon and click on the DVD tab and look to the right side for the $3.99 DVD link. Or try this direct link.

    Don Juan DeMarco (WS, non-anamorphic)
    What About Bob? (WS, non-anamorphic)
    Waking Life
    The Ref
    My Neighbor Totoro (full-screen)
    Captain Ron
    His Girl Friday
    Mario Puzo's The Last Don
    Titan A.E. (Special Edition)
    Diner
    A Life Less Ordinary
    The Complete Superman Cartoons - Diamond Anniversary Edition (supposedly the one to get)
    Quick Fix - Stability Ball Workout
    The Great Santini
    Kipper - Fun In The Sun
    Private Benjamin
    Best of Friends Season 1
    Forget Paris
    The John Wayne Story - The Later Years
    The Little Rascals - Little Papa, Dogs Is Dogs, Sprucin' Up
    Night of the Living Dead
    Red Skelton - King of Laughter
    Why We Fight World War II - Divide and Conquer / The Battle of Britain
    The Little Princess
    Stand and Deliver
    The Three Stooges - Funniest Moments II
    Hilary Duff - All-Access Pass (OMG!!!!)
    Point of No Return
    The James Dean Story
    The Legend of Bruce Lee

    Just be aware some are non-anamorphic widescreen, and some are the full-screen version (like My Neighbor Totoro), but for $4 a pop, it's like a rental that you will own. And some are backordered 7-10 days.


    Free shipping if you get 7 of these titles (over $25).

    I wound up ordering 8 titles to push me into free shipping. There is a 2 week delay in shipping, though, per the email confirmation (perhaps Amazon is collecting orders and then making their own wholesale order for each title).

    (Update - 3 out of 8 have shipped today, perhaps the others will ship sooner, rather than later, as well).

    Thanks for the heads up, Patrick! [​IMG]

    I added the Superman set to my August order. As much as Timm et al discuss the Fleischer Superman as one of their inspirations for the look of S:TAS, I thought it was high time I picked this one up. [​IMG]

    Nice link, Gabriel.

    So, no one is admitting to picking up that enticing "Hillary Duff - All-Access Pass" DVD" [​IMG]

    Don Juan DeMarco (WS, non-anamorphic)

    You know, you can also get this one at no cost from Papa John's with a large pizza order.

    It appears the prices have gone back up to normal price again. Y'all missed out on that Hillary Duff special!

    OK, I will admit that I actually wanted to catch her appearance on Jay Leno in HD last night, but I went to bed early and slept right through it. Oh well. . . .

    I was surprised to receive my partial order today via UPS ground in one day from KY to GA.

    Not true. The Papa Johns version is P&S-only and has forced trailers and no menu. Had I known about this, I would have given it back to the delivery guy. But now I'm stuck with this crap. [​IMG]
