Richard:CDUniverse has on sale right now a similar TCM- Esther Williams collection with "Bathing Beauty," "On an Island With You,"Neptune's Daughter" and "Dangerous When Wet." It was under $15 when I looked a few minures ago.
I bought this a year or two ago to get The Shop Around the Corner (one of my favorite Stewart pictures) and because I had never seen The FBI Story before. All four played beautifully for me on initial viewing.I just picked up Silver Screen Legends James Stewart with The FBI Story, The Stratton Story, The Spirit of St. Louis and The Shop Around the Corner (the reason I bought the DVD to begin with) .
This is kind of a huge risk in case these wind up on Blu ray. My hunch is, these are not priority titles for WAC - I usually dont buy too many DVDs these days because they are subject to Blu-ray
I've been buying Warner Archives MOD discs since day one and have yet to have one go bad on me. It's the pressed discs that are going bad over time!In the past few days I've watched three Elizabeth Taylor movies on Warner Archives DVD-Rs and they all played without any problem: Rhapsody, The Girl Who Had Everything and Julia Misbehaves.
I well remember when the Warners Archive MOD program was introduced in 2009 and the hysteria among film collectors that these burned discs would "rot" or go bad in a matter of a few years. 10 years later, I wonder what these naysayers have to say about it now especially with the irony of the pressed discs going bad instead.Likewise. I actually feel more comfortable buying a Warner Archive DVD-r than the 2006-era WHV pressed equivalent.
