I hope PAJAMA GAME shows up on iTunes as well!!!!!
What do you folks think are the chances of seeing, among the next Archive releases, Arthur Penn's The Left-Handed Gun (1958)? I'd love to see a hi-def upgrade of this terrific though little-talked-about western. The DVD was all right but I think there might be room for improvement...
Speaking of westerns, I'm also wondering if the folks at WB are giving any thoughts to blu-ray upgrades of the following MGM titles:
Escape from Fort Bravo (1953)
Many Rivers to Cross (1955)
Tribute to a Bad Man (1956)
The Fastest Gun Alive (1956) --did this even get an official Warner dvd release??--
Saddle the Wind (1958)
PS. I didn't mention what is actually my most-cherished title, Mann's The Naked Spur (1953), but I hope (also heeding some rumors here and elsewhere) this might get the Criterion treatment sooner or later...
Saddle The Wind is a possibility because the DVD indicates the elements are in reasonable condition.
Added a thread in the deals section, but since many people never go there, a heads up
WBShop 4 for $44 + Free Shipping

Well, at least Prime Day is good for something as everybody is piling on once the BUY ME juices get going
Wow and Double Wow! I grabbed up ten of the twelve on my Wait For Sale list. The only
ones I couldn't get were the Blu-Rays of FOOTLIGHT PARADE and THE THIN MAN, which
will undoubtedly appear in the next sale. Between this and the Barnes and Noble Criterion
Sale, I may have to cut out a few things such as food. Too bad. I need to lose a few pounds
I can’t get into my account, and can’t get a link for a new password sent, either. Frustrating.
A Star is Born '54 and '76 were both just quietly issued on Blu ray by WAC, so anything is possible.
Both are merely making previously available blu-ray discs from WB available again through the Archive. They aren’t new releases.
Caught up on some musicals in the sale:
Lovely to Look at At
I wasn't expecting this sale, but I'm grateful for the heads-up. I used to get email notifications about WAC sales, but I didn't this time. So thank you, David Norman. for posting about it here. I just purchased these 5 films on blu:
Dracula A.D. 1972
While the City Sleeps
August releases should be any day now. I hope we get some Long awaited classics !
It looks like they're making their announcements today. They just announced their Blu-ray set for The Jetsons series to start the day.
Riverdale Season 3
V: The Miniseries
And just announced on FB
I bought way too many titles, but since they have fewer sales, I guess it evens out. I was pleased to see that Summer Stock was on sale and some other fairly recent releases. I picked up 20 this time; a mixture of DVD and Blu-ray. I also noticed that there are several titles that are listed as $12.99 regular price. I now have some incentive to pick up some of the older titles even when they are not on sale.
Just The Jetsons for me. I hope The Curse of Frankenstein will be released in the coming months. October maybe for Halloween ??
With last month's and this month's, the WAC announcements have gotten exciting again, after months of meh.
I would love to see CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN looking decent for once. IT remains conspicuously missing from the Warner Bros Blu Hammer releases, hopefully because they have been searching for better elements.
I would love to see the last remaining big war epic on blu ray Operation Crossbow I am sure the Warner Archive team read this thread All the other great epic war movies have had a release on blu
I agree much better recently. Though, If they ever get Journey Into Fear & Blood on the Moon out, I'd pay full price. And not wait 6 months for them to show up in 4 for 44 sale.
Really stoked about this batch! Moonfleet, Wagon Master, Jezebel are all day one purchases. Now I'm getting a bit excited that someday we might actually see BD versions of Helen of Troy, Scaramouche, Ivanhoe, The Silver Chalice, Raintree County and Land of the Pharaohs. Hope these deep classics sell like hotcakes.
