    I thought all the new Woody Allens with the last set were going to be designated Contemporary Classics. Is MGM no longer labeling their releases under various banners?

    I'm not sure about the labelling, but the latest set are all plain looking covers. They look good, but all my three sets look awfully inconsistent:
    Box One: Regular covers, 16x9 transfers except for Annie Hall, full frame transfers on opposing side except for Manhattan
    Box Two: Contemporary Classics Covers, 16x9 transfers on all
    Box Three: Regular covers, 16x9 transfers on all....which is odd considering MGM wanted to put full frame transfers on all their releases starting this fall.
    Odd...

    Seems MGM has abandoned it's "Contemporary Classics" and "Movie Time" banners. Probably because those are such broad and arbitrary labels -- just about anything could fall under them.
    They appear to still be doing the "Western Legends," "Midnite Movies" and "Avant-Garde Cinema" thing though.

    I have yet to find this 3rd set, or even the individual titles. What is going on here?

    Tim, a little late responding I know, but there are plenty of the box sets laying on shelves in A and B sound in Victoria. If you still can't find it let me know.
