    I have ran across a series of Screen Goddess Collections from region 2 which are box sets that include some lesser known as well as classic movies of several actresses including Marilyn Monroe, Mae West, Rita Hayworth, etc... Looks like combinations of MGM, Columbia releases.

    These look to have been released in October this year. Why haven't they been seen in Region 1?

    The reason I noticed this is because I saw Columbia had released in Region 2 under the banner Columbia Classics the Monroe movie "Ladies of the Chorus".

    Any info on these?

    They're released under the UCA banner - the Universal Columbia Alliance - in the UK, as the title indicates a combination of Universal and Columbia owned titles (which in the UK means some from the RKO catalogue).

    You won't get that combination in R1; and trust me, the RKO titles are better off in the hands of Warners.
