:shock: :shock: Don't Be afraid of the Dark is a must-have!! The horror film which left an everlasting impression on me during my childhood!! Actually it's a TV film and holds-up quite well if you watch it as an adult.

Hi, everyone. Just thought I would jump in and say that though I've only been renting the titles so far
(I keep waiting for a "good sale" and free shipping), I may be tempted soon. Not only for the Gary Cooper
titles that have come out, but there now are three early Myrna Loys that I am coveting:

The Barbarian (my favorite of all her pre-Thin Man thirties movies; very romantic)
Whipsaw (wonderful, underrated pairing with Spencer Tracy. This is the movie Fred G. Sanford talks about to his son Lamont on "Sanford and Son". If that isn't a recommendation, I don't know what is. :lol: )
Penthouse (not as good as the previous two, but fundamental they say, to turning Mrna's career away from vampish parts to playing more mainstream girls)

Now to just get them interested in opening up Bobby Montgomery's catalogue of titles. I'll go bankrupt.

Here's a site that is a little easier on the eye than Warner's official page, when it comes to listing what's available:

From the New York Post: DVD Extra: Warner Archive gets some remastering.

That note about the high definition remaster done for the Archive's release of Our Vines Have Tender Grapes is interesting. My DVD arrived today and I watched it for the first time tonight, before reading the article, and remember thinking that the image quality was better than on their Mrs. Parkington DVD. It's funny though, because on the WB store's page for OVHTG, they say that it has not been remastered, that it has been made from the best existing elements. That's their standard disclaimer, but you'd think that if they've started to remaster some of these titles that they'd let the potential buyers know about it on their site. :?

PT, I ordered my copy on Monday, got it today. Haven't had time yet to watch it, but I sure would like to know what you thought of it. Had you ever seen the movie? I still think this is one of Aggie's best roles.

I received some e-mails from the TCM site advertising the release of "Remember the Night" (1939) and a Cult Horror Classics Set which includes 5 films, most notably "Murders in the Zoo" (1933), which has been in my Wish List for years (on VHS format), but these are advertised as belonging to the "TCM from the Vault Collection". Are these also on DVD-R format, like the Lost & Found movies collection (Double Harness, Rafter Romance et al)?

I also read that three early Paramounts featuring Cary Grant will be released: "The Devil and the Deep" (1932), "The Eagle and The Hawk" (1933) and "The Last Outpost" (1935).

Are these offerinmgs basically in the same style than The Warner Archive's?

Thanks for your feedback on this subject.

This is a link to the TCM thread about the Cult Horror Classics Set. Judging by some of the posts, the DVDs are pressed and not DVD-r, like the Archives.
