The Vault of Warner

WBshop.com - The Official Online Store of Warner Bros. Studios: Warner Archive

Warner Brothers has come up with a terrific way to give those interested in their classic films a way to see ones that have not yet been released on DVD. You can peruse titles from their archives; and if you see a title you like, you can order a DVD of it. Warners will then produce a single-copy DVD for you. No extras, and the company probably won't do anything to clean up the picture (although digital masters are used for the DVDs), but you'll have it.

I ordered DOC SAVAGE: THE MAN OF BRONZE. I've never been able to make it through an entire viewing of this movie, which left me hoping that somebody will one day make a good Doc Savage flick. Still, with the '30's setting and the high adventure, it'll be nice to have around.

Thanks for the heads up on the WB shop.

Their filing system was MOST amusing. Under Mysteries I got TWO Thin Man movies (oh boy!) and a CHIPS!!!! (someone was drinking their lunch)

I'm going to have to poke around a bit. It was odd that there was ONE Greta Garbo, but TWELVE Queen Latifa. (I like Queen Latifa, but that ratio just seems WRONG.)

(P.S. I followed you home from Lee Goldberg's site) :)
