Coming to DVD: Warner Gangsters Collection, Vol. 4

September 26, 2008 is the release date for the latest volume in the Warner Gangsters Collection.

This is marvelous news as, like the Warners Film Noir releases, the Gangsters sets are beautifully produced and filled with extras.

The titles in the new 6-disc set are THE AMAZING DR. CLITTERHOUSE, THE LITTLE GIANT, KID GALAHAD, INVISIBLE STRIPES, and LARCENY, INC. The majority of the films star Edward G. Robinson, with a little Humphrey Bogart thrown in.

The set also includes a new feature-length documentary, PUBLIC ENEMIES: THE GOLDEN AGE OF THE GANGSTER FILM.

DVD Times details the extras, which include shorts, cartoons, newsreels, radio productions, trailers, and a commentary on each title in the set. USC professors Drew Casper and Richard Jewell team up for a joint commentary track, and other commentaries are by Alain Silver, James Ursini, Dana Polan, Haden Guest, and more.

Update: The release date has been changed to October 21, 2008.
