I just watched the original w/ Lana Turner and John Garfield on TCM this evening and would like to pick up the DVD but am hesitant since Warner is slowly revisiting their earlier released classics in elaborate box sets with upgraded keepcase art.
I just wanted to post here to ask wehther there was any strong possibility that this title might turn up in just such a packaging in the near future? I couldn't think of any box-set contexts that it might fit into, and I doubt very much that we'd be seeing a Lana Turner Collection from WB, so would you guys say that this title is a safe buy?
I could see the Lana Turner/John Garfield version appearing in a keepcase in the next year or two. There was word that more of John Garfield's films were coming next year, and if say a signature collection were released Postman would be an obvious addition even if for only the inclusion of the TCM documentary included on the disc. Many of Garfield's Warners films are not available yet, and though he is not quite as popular as say Bogart, Flynn, or Cagney, Garfield does have a solid fan-base that would welcome a collection. But, in any case I would reccomend purchasing the film, because it is a wonderful disc, and in the event of a box set the price will be so cheap that you will still get your moneys worth.
