    If you go to Costco on Tuesday, August 12th, you should be able to find 2 different 4 DVD blister packs from 20th.

    One contains All About Eve, How Green Was My Valley, Gentleman's Agreement and Sunrise.

    The other contains An Affair to Remember, Song of Bernadette, Love is a Many Splendored Thing and Sunrise.

    The price is a very low $34.99 and you won't have to mail in for Sunrise. But if you bought some of these already, then I guess you won't be happy about this.

    How do I know this? I was in Costco today (August 10th) and I saw both of these sets. I picked up the one starting with An Affair to Remember, stuck in my basket, bought a chicken, some cans of asparagus, a big box of trash bags and proceeded to the cashier. When she scanned my Fox DVD set, she said, "Uh oh. I can't sell you this." My jaw dropped. She then proceeded to tell me that the "street date" for this is August 12th and they are not allowed "by law" to sell them ahead of time and they were put out early by error. They are holding it for me until Tuesday. The moral of this story is if you see something out ahead of street date at Costco, you still can't buy it because their register system won't authorize it to be sold. In this case, I think it's a Costco only promotion so I personally don't see what the big deal is about a street date in this instance.

    I just got my copy of Sunrise from the mail in offer earlier this week, actually. I was beginning to get worried...

    It's a beautiful disc, and it's one of the few single disc DVDs that would be worth a $34.99 price, so if you want Sunrise, it's absolutely worth paying that for that box set. (If Criterion had put it out, and it's a Criterion quality disc, it would cost that much anyway.)

    There are no Costcos in my area...

    Do you think this is the type of set that would show up at a wholesale club such as Sam's Club?

    I thought this set was supposed to come out only on October 14th? I guess Costco has them in advance ...

    Sunrise was $34.99 at Costco, plus you got free copies of 3 other Fox Studio Classics. :wink:

    The 4-packs of Fox Studio Classics were these 3 choices:
    1) The Ghost & Mrs. Muir/Anastasia/Inn of The Sixth Happiness/Sunrise
    2) Love Is A Many-Splendored Thing/Song of Bernadette/An Affair to Remember/Sunrise
    3) All About Eve/Gentleman's Agreement/How Green Was My Valley/Sunrise

    As I don't have any of these films, I'm unsure which to choose.

    I'm not sure that's possible. Costco is a membership warehouse club. Unless you're a member, you probably can't buy directly from them. Their website is www.costco.com

    I'm also wondering if this offer is available in Canada. Anyone up north got a chance to check their Costco?

    Actually you can buy from www.costco.com without being a costco member, you merely pay a surcharge. You only need the membership to shop in their B&M stores. But it's unclear whether they would ship direct to the UK.

    Nope. From costco.com:

    I don't know how correct it is, but the Washington Post hinted at Sunrise being released as a regular Studio Classic in 2004.

    Just to clarify, this isn't a boxset. It's just four movies sold in one package. There isn't a box or anything else to hold them together (unless you like the oversized plastic CostCo packaging [​IMG]). Since I don't plan to stop with just the four, I'm cool with not having a box. Although I wouldn't mind one large box from Paul Champagne. [​IMG]

    I didn't realize there were (at least) three different bundles. But that's OK because I got the one I would have picked anyway (All About Eve, Gentleman's Agreement and How Green Was My Valley).

    I was there picking up Babylon 5 season 3 and ran across these by accident. It's a pretty sweet deal.

    I notice that out of the three listed so far, not one has The Day the Earth Stood Still. That was originally going to be my third choice along with All About Eve and How Green Was My Valley. Now I'll just have to get it seperately. [​IMG]
