For you Nicholas Cage fans, iTunes has a TON of his films on sale today for $4.99. Most are HD, but there are a couple of 4K titles as well.

I picked up Liberty Valance and the 1967 film Casino Royale -- only had the latter on DVD. Contemplating buying Viva Zapata.

The Longest Day
is on sale. I know that there were issues with the BD transfer at one time. Does anyone know if the version on iTunes suffers from those same issues?

Several of my wants are on sale but I'm concerned about Peyton Place. The clip appears to be in stereo but on iTunes it has black bars on the sides...and it's a Cinemascope movie. The same clip is on Vudu without black bars: it's 16:9 but that still seems not wide enough to me.

Also, does anyone know if Pal Joey has a stereo soundtrack or not?

It's been in the wrong aspect ratio on iTunes. It is supposed to be 2.35, but is 1.85.

Edit: I just checked, it's still in the wrong aspect ratio on iTunes, but it's a MA title and Vudu has it in 2.35.

I also snapped up Liberty Valence in 4K. And for Marilyn Monroe completists, Monkey Business is on sale. It’s never been on Blu-ray, and according to Cheap Charts, the last time it was on sale was 2018!

I bought monkey business from Amazon prime a year or so ago and it’s a movies anywhere title. Otherwise I would’ve grabbed that one too.

It’s curious the MM set hasn’t been on sale in several years. I’d like to just buy the whole set.

$4.99 titles are going to kill me, lol....

Gangs of New York
Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
The Bourne Legacy (4k)
The Untouchables
Despicable Me 3 (4k)
The Mummy (1932)
Meet the Robinsons

I missed the sale price for The Mummy, so thanks for that. I now have enough of the Universal Monsters releases on iTunes to where I am comfortable selling the BD set that included 8 of the films. I am only missing The Wolf Man (still waiting for a price drop), and two I really don't care for and will not be picking up -- The Creature From the Black Lagoon and Phantom of the Opera.
