    A word of caution these are early Monroe films in which she has a secondary role in the cast. The best of these films, IMO, are "As Yound as You Feel" which has played on FMC and TCM and "We're Not Married" which is pretty funny.

    I'd say she has a tertiary role in most of them. Love Nest also features a young Jack Paar. They are low-budget "B" films. Fun nevertheless.

    Hmmm ..... if Fox had added O'Henry's Full House to those titles, then ALL of Monroe's Fox titles would have been available on DVD! Curious as it's the best of the Monroe titles not yet released.

    Of course, Monroe's "part" is merely a glorified cameo.

    I have to agree with Thomas T. This would have made another "box set" but looks like each is now being sold on their own? Wonder if the quality and extras will be identical to the previous releases?

    Now if we could get Columbia to release Ladies of the Chorus and Warner to release the RKO Fritz Lang title Clash by Nightwhich also starred Barbara Stanwyck and Love Happy (United Artist - now MGM) which also starred the Marx Brothers the last time as a team.

    If films where MM only had a small role are being released, why not Asphalt Jungle? I believe it's Fox, too.

    Edit: Looks like Asphalt Jungle is MGM, or at least was in its last video release. So, it couldn't be part of these, but it should be released.

    This title now belongs to Warner which probably means it will be release at some time.

    Good news!


    It's just incredible that we can make that statement now. It wasn't so long ago we were (rightly) complaining about Warners sitting on their catalog titles. They have made a wonderful, laudable turnaround.
