    Oh, wow. I've been waiting years for White Heat. And I haven't even seen three of these movies, but I've definitely been wanting to.

    But...Mother of mercy! Is this the end of my wallet?

    Not for $68.92 SRP for six movies, it isn't. Shopping on-line will presumably bring this one in for under $50, maybe even in the low 40s. On the other hand, who cares? Warners has kicked so much ass with their classic box sets--Legends Collection, Noir, Hitchcock, just to name the ones I own--that I'd gladly pay noticeably more than that.

    Every single one of those titles is a must-have! Definitely I'll go for the box. I hope more Cagney follows soon thereafter.

    Wow ! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]



    Thank you Warner ! I was expecting a Cagney collection with the 4 Cagney titles, but Little Caesar and Petrified Forest are a great addition to the collection. Can't wait !



    These Warner box sets are making me go broke [​IMG]

    Simply breathtaking!!! These are marvelous news!!!!

    Just after a month and a week of 2005 and WB have gave us 12 grand classics on dvd: The Letter, Ivanhoe, Random Harvest, King Solomon's Mines, Public Enemy, The Roaring Twenties, Little Caesar, The Petrified Forest, White Heat, Angels with dirty faces, Broadway Melody and The Life of Emile Zola!!!!

    I keep on thinking if the rest of the year will be like these two first months. Seems that 2005 will be the best year for classic movie fans.

    Thanks a lot Warner!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And I can't wait for Fred and Ginger, Garbo, Flynn, Cagney, Val Lewton, More Davis and Crawford, The Thin Man collection, More Fim Noir, San Francisco, Test Pilot, The Good Earth, Bathing Beauty, Easter Parade, The Band Wagon, and whatever more comes in 2005.

    The Gangsters box set will be mine, all five DVD Choice winners and the three Best Picture winners (to almost finish off my Best Picture Collection...)



    That's just the first two months (so far,) just imagine what the rest of 2005 will hold!



    (My poor wallet...)

    Simply awesome. [​IMG]



    I have no reason to doubt Warner with their stellar record over the past 2+ years, but here's hoping that The Public Enemy is presented in its correct windowboxed 1.17:1 OAR.
