More Warner Archive Releases

Many thanks to Carrie Liz for alerting me that Warner Archive has added a few more titles to their latest list of releases.

My younger daughter will be very excited to hear that one of her favorite movies, TWO GIRLS AND A SAILOR (1944), made the release list. It stars June Allyson, Gloria DeHaven, Van Johnson, Tom Drake, Harry James, and more.

The other new titles: TOM, DICK AND HARRY (Ginger Rogers), BROADWAY RHYTHM (Gloria DeHaven), BREAKFAST FOR TWO (Herbert Marshall, Barbara Stanwyck), and BADMAN'S TERRITORY (Randolph Scott).

I've seen TOM, DICK AND HARRY but not the rest of this latest list, which all sound very interesting.

The Archive really needs to do something to make their site faster and easier to navigate, as well as make it easier to identify new titles as they're added... The "New Arrivals" page includes 32 titles, but some of them were in the original batch of 150, not added in the last few days.

I've seen Breakfast for Two and found it absolutely delightful. It's a screwball comedy and while Herbert and Barbara are excellent, Eric Blore and Donald Meek make the movie.

I wouldn't mind have TWO GIRLS AND A SAILOR on DVD, but I still think the prices are too high. :-(

I suspect they may come down in future. I filled out a customer survey that was filled with questions asking what I thought was an appropriate price and asking about other lower-cost buying options. I think they're trying to get a feel for the market. It's a unique and valuable service, but most of us agree that this is a high price for bare bones DVDs. Hopefully they will be willing to trade the high price for doing greater volume instead.

Best wishes,
Laura

BREAKFAST FOR TWO sounds very appealing, Evangeline! Thanks for sharing the thumbs up.
