    According to a video on the Warner Archive Facebook page, looks like The Thin Man (the first movie) is coming to Blu very shortly. The video shows them opening up a Blu-ray case with the disc inside.

    Peter,

    I edited the thread's title to indicate it's a Warner Archive release, most likely in July.

    Great news. Would also like the television series which hasn't had a home video release.

    TBH, I think we're lucky to get the first film on Blu-ray.

    So this is the 30s movie they were talking about trying to release! While I've never seen it, I want to, so it's a day one, full price purchase for me! And let me be the person to remind everybody: this is WAC's FIRST release of a 30s film on Blu-ray in nearly 4 YEARS. Otherwise translated, they are expensive restorations and/or poor sellers, so if you want more for that decade (and you want this release), you REALLY need to support this release! Especially if you want more of the series. Do not delay, do not wait for a sale (and especially DO NOT wait for a boxset, as it will be a tough enough job just to get more than this film on Blu-ray). So start saving for this one RIGHT NOW!

    Excited. This will be a pre-order for me, and I hope to see the rest of the series follow in due time.

    I'm tickled too! This is a great film. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I hope they include the documentary Alias Nick and Nora on the disc, too.

    I’ll claim credit for this - my wife recently got me the four movie set on DVD, so naturally, a Blu-ray has just been announced :D

    Should be a 6 movie set unless they re-released it with only 4 of the movies

    At long last! And I never expected to see it because current TCM broadcasts and the DVD look pretty rough in terms of dirt and damage. Of the original six, I do rewatch it the most often.
