    The MONOGRAM COWBOY COLLECTION, Volume 10, is listed at Movies Unlimited, Importcds, and DeepDiscount as releasing, October 15, 2019. Nine more Johnny Mack Brown western features.
    3725717-2479354.

    The listings mark this release as a "Movies Unlimited Exclusive!", so the October 15th release date might turn out to be for Movies Unlimited, only.

    Volume 9 was released in 2016. I wonder if this new release might mean Tim Holt Volume 5 is still going to happen? Holt Vol. 4 came out in 2014. There are still ten Holt RKO westerns that have not been released by WAC. Three of them are Zane Grey titles, that were released by Lion's Gate years ago. That still leaves seven that WAC could release.

    Too late for Father's Day, but anyway, here's Walter Huston, Tim Holt, John Huston, and Jack Holt. Backstage, at the flophouse scene, in "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre".

    Tim Holt, featured in films by John Ford, Orson Welles and John Huston. What a remarkable career.

    Big sloppy wet kiss to WAC for The Thin Man and Jezebel on Blu. Already getting excited for their farm out of Now Voyager to Criterion.

    Okay, not the most 'professional way' to begin a dialogue, I'll admit, but I'm singing their praises here. Bravo! Kudos! Love yah!

    Requests? Plenty! For kick starters - would love to see a Blu of High Society, Marie Antoinette, Romeo and Juliet, Maytime, and Bathing Beauty, That Midnight Kiss, The Toast of New Orleans, Holiday in Mexico, Show Boat, The Student Prince.

    More Garland would be nice. Definitely more Rooney, Gable, Flynn and Davis too. Favs? For Me and My Gal, The Harvey Girls, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Boy's Town, National Velvet, Red Dust, San Francisco, China Seas, Test Pilot, Idiot's Delight, Captain Blood, The Charge of the Light Brigade, Gentleman Jim, The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex, Old Acquaintance, All This and Heaven Too, In This Our Life, The Star.

    Looking for information on Wonder Woman (1974) -- the Crosby TV Movie released 2012. Someone asked me if this had ever been available as a pressed DVD or if it was always DVD-R (and still). Amazon doesn't specifically list it as a DVD-R like it does most WAC DVDs (or did at one point) but I thought all their WAC DVD items were burned or at least were during most of the early years.

    I was out of DVD before WAC before a division so other than occasionally scanning the threads, I'm a bit lost

    WONDER WOMAN-1974 was always DVD-R only. Amazon does not seem to be listing even older DVD-R items we know they burned, themselves, as being DVD-R, anymore. Like Amazon CBS Entertainment Mod exclusives, and out of print DVD titles from The Garr Group, like SEA HUNT. DVD-R titles Amazon purchased directly from other distributors were never listed as being DVD-R at Amazon.

    Thank you. I'll pass it on.

    I was fairly sure it was DVD-R, but these WAC DVD have always confused me trying to figure out the format

    IIRC, I think the general rule of thumb is, most WAC DVD titles are DVD-R. BluRay titles are usually "traditionally pressed" (I'm sorry, I don't know what the technical term is - what I mean is, they're manufactured just like the BluRays you'd buy in Walmart, Costco, etc.). Some WAC DVDs (usually tv series) MAY be "Traditionally pressed", but there was usually an announcement on the WAC website to this effect when the title was first introduced.

    The BD are easy. 100% Pressed -- designation always worked for me to distinguish from Burned

    My assumption has been to assume all the DVD are burned and esp the Amazon versions, but the change from specifically screaming DVDR in the listings confused me.

    I somehow missed that the two film adaptations of Kind Lady had been released on DVD as a double feature two years ago.

    Is the 1951 version an upgrade over the master that TCM airs?

    Looks like the Warner Archive have re-released the now out of print TCM Archives Lon Chaney Collection. Unfortunately, based on the specs at the WB Shop, it looks like they've dropped the wonderful Kevin Brownlow feature length documentary LON CHANEY: A THOUSAND FACES. Can anyone confirm that this is true? I wanted to pick up a copy from someone who is very interested in having the documentary, but it looks like no joy on this reissue.

    Sadly, I've confirmed it myself.....the documentary isn't included on the DVD-R set.

    I missed DVD release also and have rectified that situation. In High School I saw the 1951 version on a local TV station and enjoyed this charming movie.

    Has this been released? I can’t find it on the WAC or Amazon website.

    As I mentioned in my original post, "The Monogram Cowboy Collection Vol. 10" is a Movies Unlimited exclusive. The listings for Vol 10 have been removed from DeepDiscount and Importcds.

    It has been a long time since I have noticed WAC giving an exclusive to a specific retailer. I wonder how much longer the title will be exclusive to MU?

    Thanks, I just ordered it from Movies Unlimited. You did clearly state that it was an exclusive, it just didn’t register. .
