    Hi everyone I am new here and reading some of these posts I am hearing some of you talk about upcoming Wb Signature Sets of stars like Paul NewMan, Flynn in 2007 and so on. I was wondering if any of you know any links or chat recordings I can look to so i can read to see what sets I can expect in the upcoming years thank you!

    I dont understand why they made a Ronald Reagan Signature Set, but not a Marlon Brando Signature set....Julius Caesar and Mutiny should be in it. Add three or two more movies and a cool documentary and we'll be set

    But there is a Marlon Brando signature set coming in 2006. It includes: The Formula, Reflections in a Golden Eye and Julius Caesar.

    Then Mutiny on the Bounty is coming sometime this year as well.

    It depends how many titles Warners own. Perhaps the studio only owns four other Brando titles due for release, his other work may belong to other studios. Don't know the thinking on the Mutiny on The Bounty release, but Warners know what they are doing and have planned carefully.

    As for the Paul Newman and Taylor/Burton Boxsets, we don't even know if they will be part of Warners Signature Collection series. of all the unreleased Paul Newman movies onto DVD, Warners own about ten - so you would expect the 2006 Newman collection would be big. Not sure about Taylor/Burton, except for the 2 disc Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf title to be re-released. Perhaps I might go and do a bit of research.

    There is no official confirmation of the Brando signature box contents at this stage. My guess is Mutiny On The Bounty (1962) will be included in the box.

    As far as we know, the Paul Newman boxset will contain; Harper, The Drowning Pool, Somebody Up There Likes Me and The Young Philadelphians. There are other titles involved, but we are not sure what they are. A SE 2 Disc for Cool Hand Luke is being tentatively planned for 2007. Not sure if this collection is part of Warners' Signature Collection Series.

    This is somewhat off topic, but why is Joan Crawford and Bette Davis part of the Signature Series? Kinda wierd, but love the box art for their sets too

    The Bogart and Bacall Signature Collection just came out. Big Sleep, Key Largo, Have or Have not and Dark PAssage is now available. It was a amazon exclusive but now I guess you can get it anywhere. The new ones have the plastic cases (not the cheaper cardboard ones that I got from the Amazon set).

    I think you will find that the Davis and Crawford Collections are part of Warners Legendary Classics Series, not the Signature series.

    Go to www.whvdvdcollections.com and have a gander. Fantastic site.

    When I was watching TCM, they showed recently restored versions of The V.I.P's, The Comedians, and The Sandpiper. They looked stunning so they'll be in the Taylor/Burton set.
