I have The Prizefighter and the Lady and The Wet Parade if you're still needing them. I can offer only VHS copies, though. Send me a private message if you're interested.

I know this is a really old post, but I have a story about The Barbarian that I thought was worth sharing--sort of a case study.

A number of years ago, I was putting on my shoes to go to work and flipped on TCM to see what was on. It just happened to be the celebrated "bathing sequence." Oh, Mrs. Charles!. I think my eyes popped out of my head a little bit. I did an internet search to see if the film was in print anywhere, and when I saw it wasn't, I just figured I'd have to wait until it came up in the rotation again, like on Myrna's birthday. That's when I learned that sometimes a film that isn't your typical "war-horse" may take years to come back...if at all.

After waiting year after year, I became aware of the "collector" sites, where you could get a DVDR of an out-of-print title for a nominal fee. I did business with one guy in New England and that went pretty well. I was just about to make a second transaction with him--including The Barbarian-- and he wrote a somewhat frantic reply to me saying that he was in the process of getting shut down by copyright lawyers.

Now, I notice that Warners is adding more and more titles to their catalog as DVD-Rs, including none other than The Barbarian. I have since gotten over my obsession, and may or may not get a copy (it's twenty bucks), but it was kind of interesting to track the progression of events.
