New on DVD: The Barbara Stanwyck Collection

Just a reminder that the six-film Barbara Stanwyck Collection, part of the Universal Backlot series, went on sale today, April 27th.

Full details, including a list of titles and costars, can be found in my post from February.

Reviews of the films have been posted this week by Lou Lumenick and Sean Axmaker.

Sets such as the Stanwyck Collection have been fairly rare over the past year, so hopefully all those interested in seeing these films will support this release. I'd love to see similar sets from Universal in the future. Universal's Claudette Colbert Collection, released last fall, was absolutely marvelous, and I expect the Stanwyck Collection will be equally interesting. My copy should arrive later this week!

Update: A report from Greenbriar Picture Shows on the print used for THERE'S ALWAYS TOMORROW is disappointing. I'll be watching for further reviews.

Update No. 2: Dave Kehr confirms the problem with the DVD print of THERE'S ALWAYS TOMORROW.

The set was also reviewed by Paul Mavis at DVD Talk.

Update No. 3: Those who are interested in the subject will want to read through the comments to Dave Kehr's review, linked above, where he and Paul Mavis have a spirited discussion about the aspect ratio issue.

Update No. 4: Here are my reviews of the set's INTERNES CAN'T TAKE MONEY (1937), THE BRIDE WORE BOOTS (1946), and ALL I DESIRE (1953).

That's a nice way of putting it, Laura. :)
