There are some attractive boxed DVD sets which will be released early in 2009.
A third volume of Doris Day films -- preceded by Volume 1 and Volume 2 -- will be released on April 7th. The five films included are STARLIFT, TEA FOR TWO, APRIL IN PARIS, IT'S A GREAT FEELING, and THE TUNNEL OF LOVE. (Click the title of this post to read more.)
Unfortunately I found THE TUNNEL OF LOVE to be a waste of the great talents of Day and her costar, Richard Widmark, but I'm very much looking forward to the other four films in the set, which are all new to me. Extras include trailers, shorts, cartoons, and a radio show.
Closer in time, February 7th the Natalie Wood Signature Collection will be released.
The set includes six titles: GYPSY, CASH MCCALL, BOMBERS B-52, INSIDE DAISY CLOVER, SEX AND THE SINGLE GIRL, and SPLENDOR IN THE GRASS.
There are some interesting titles here, although I would have liked to see DVD releases of LOVE WITH THE PROPER STRANGER or THIS PROPERTY IS CONDEMNED.
The best DVD news I've heard lately concerns the upcoming Forbidden Hollywood Volume 3 Collection, but I've been waiting for the cover art to be made widely available before featuring the set in a post.
