I really like Party Girl, too. I'm still waiting for some other titles to show up in the archive before I go for the 5 for 25% off dealie (assuming it will still be valid).

Come on CASS TIMBELANE---be in the next batch or else in an official commercial release!!

Bright Leaf (1950)
Colleen (1936)
Flirtation Walk (1934)
Four's a Crowd (1938)
Happiness Ahead (1934)
It's Love I'm After (1937)
One Sunday Afternoon (1933)
Operator 13 (1934)
Ready, Willing and Able (1937)
Roughly Speaking (1945)

It looks like the Copper films (Bright Leaf/Saratoga Trunk/One Sunday Afternoon/Operator 13/Today We Live/Task Force) are also available in a "set" (for $59.95) like the Tarzan films from the previous batch.

Thanks Michi. Do you know when these become available? I see Four's a Crowd on the Warner site, but can't find Colleen nor Flirtation Walk. It's my birthday month and I want to take full advantage of the 25% discount that this event brings...

Kevin,

:roll: About time they released a few more Silents. Even though I have all these off TCM, many people may not have. I may still Spring for a few titles anyway, just to have copies with no TCM logo on them.

THE DIVINE LADY! Woo-hoo! CORINNE GRIFFITH!!!! :-* Definitelty the biggest surprise in the group. A couple of Delores Costello features in WHEN A MAN LOVES, and OLD SAN FRANCISCO, that's nice, but where is NOAH'S ARK??? :P

THE BETTER 'OLE (1926) is extremely hilarious! Wonderful comedy with Syd Chaplin! I figured they would release BEAU BRUMMEL (1924), because it has a Young Composers score by James Schafer. Another chance to see John Barrymore with a young and very beautiful Mary Astor two years prior to DON JUAN. And REDUCING with Marie Dressler meanwhile has Anita Page in the cast. She doesn't have much on DVD.

I like THE SEA HAWK (1924) not many Milton Sills features are around. plus it has Enid Bennett too. Who would believe that Beneett now has more movies on DVd than Colleen Moore or Renee Adoree? oth who have none that are official. And Dressler fans have been screaming for MIN AND BILL for years with Wallace Beery.

Now Warner Archive how about some Renee Adoree movies, and Colleen Moore???? Especially, Renee starring in TIDE OF EMPIRE (1929) with Tom Keene? The film is in almost pristine condition. And where oh where is the restored LILAC TIME? I know it exists the film just ran in Chicago last November. More recently TCM aired a Gary Cooper documentary from 1992, and that had a clip from LILAC TIME in excellent shape.

Some Warner Archive DVDs are now available on Amazon, though at a higher price. Mrs. Parkington is nine dollars more through Amazon. :?

It's pretty odd. I've seen many of the Archive titles listed on Amazon but sold by "these sellers", but this says specifically it's sold by Amazon.com. Hmmm

Meanwhile, at their site, Warner Archive is bundling more sets, all at 50% off. They include:
Cary Grant 5-DVD Collection
Crime Drama 5-DVD Collection
Dick Powell & Ruby Keeler 5-DVD Collection
Gary Cooper 6-DVD Collection
Lex Barker Tarzan 5-DVD Collection
Marie Dressler 4-DVD Collection and a 6-DVD Collection
MGM Musicals of the 1940s 5-DVD Collection
Warner Archive Silents 7-DVD Collection (I just received this and so far the prints are pretty good)
Westerns of the 1950s 6-DVD Collection

Details are here:

I know! Grr. However... they do seem to be listed on moviesunlimited.com (some of them at least; I haven't checked every title), and they take overseas orders.

The TCM website has been carrying some too. Do they ship overseas?
