There have been some major, very exciting announcements today from the Warner Archive.
On December 6th the Archive will release the four-disc, eight-film Robert Montgomery Collection. I believe Montgomery has been enjoying something of a renaissance, as classic film fans discover his films thanks to Turner Classic Movies and the Warner Archive. This set will please his growing numbers of fans and hopefully help him find new ones!
The titles in the set, with my past reviews linked, where available: THE MAN IN POSSESSION (1931), SHIPMATES (1931), FAITHLESS (1932), LOVERS COURAGEOUS (1932), BUT THE FLESH IS WEAK (1932), MADE ON BROADWAY (1933), LIVE, LOVE AND LEARN (1937), and THE EARL OF CHICAGO (1940).
Now if we could only have Montgomery and Crawford's LETTY LYNTON (1932) untangled from its legal nightmare at last...well, we'll hope that happens before too long.
The Archive is cleverly making December 6th a "Montgomery" day by also releasing Elizabeth Montgomery in BELLE STARR and BETWEEN THE DARKNESS AND THE DAWN.
But wait, there's more! A remastered copy of the long-unavailable THE CONSTANT NYMPH (1943) will be out on November 22nd. I expect that will be an Archive best-seller.
Also coming November 22: the nine-film Monogram Cowboy Collection.
The Monogram Cowboy Collection will include titles with Johnny Mack Brown, Jimmy Wakeley, and Rod Cameron.
