    Most of these have been reported.

    Technically, Hell's Angels should be of major interest to buffs as it will be based upon UCLA's work on the title, inclusive of color sequences. I viewed a copy of this several years ago and the images are stunning.

    Hell's Angels is known for some of the most extraordinary aviation footage ever photographed. In these days of digital effects, the air battles in this film, especially those in dirigibles are not to be believed.

    This is a major film, which has been out of release in any quality form for only about 70 years.

    10/19

    Creature from the Black Lagoon - Legacy three films
    Invisible Man - Legacy - three films
    Mummy - Legacy - three films
    Van Helsing

    11/9

    Marx Brothers - Five films
    W.C. Fields - Five films

    12/7

    Hell's Angels - 1930

    The Marx and Fields sets will be pre-ordered as soon as they're up. I'm selling my 8-disc "Classic Monster Collection" set as soon as Universal announces a re-release of the '43 Phantom of the Opera. I'll probably re-buy all 6 Legacy sets to replace it... including the Creature set. I'm not holding my breath for Universal to release a $100 set with the 3-D glasses, signal box, etc.

    3-D should be seen where it belongs: on the theater screen, with two projectors, and polarized filters.
