    These two are among the best examples of 40's film-noir and they show up on AMC and TCM quite regularly with pretty good prints. As far as I know, Out of the Past is already available in R2. Any info on when Warner might be releasing them on R1 DVD ? I love both movies and can't wait to have them on DVD !

    I bet when WB releases some Cagney films, they'll do a whole wave (Yankee Doodle Dandy, The Public Enemy, Angels with Dirty Faces, White Heat, etc) of them.

    I'd certainly love to buy some of these films on DVD!

    I'd buy 'em! White Heat is on my most-wanted list! I'd also like to see the original Scarface, I Am a Fugitive From a Chain Gang, and a bunch of others... [​IMG]

    I've heard nothing about the DVDs of those 2 films, both of which are 2 of my all time favorites.

    Warner really needs to move their ass in getting some Cagney on DVD.

    Two absolutely great films, Deepak. But I am afraid Mark is right. No breath holding here.

    Fortunately, I have very nice Beta copies. They'll have to do.
