Now that you mention it, I actually did see a bunch at that price, but by the time I logged in they were all ones I that already own, or didn't want, so if the ones I did get were at that price, some of them must've been really short-lived. I also checked last year's order or 44 bogo discs and realized that I actually got a (very) small number of titles for that price then, too. Regardless, even the higher sale price still beats what I've seen for Olive discs anywhere else, particularly on this scale. And then there's the resale value up here should any of them not become, uhh, permanent residents!

Re: OLIVE Films BOGO Sale at Deep Discount

I think the $17 April sale prices and the May 1 promotion overlapped a few hours before the May prices were active so there was a very short window like happens at BN occasionally. Sometime theses transition points are a bit asymmetric and dramatic. It happens on small scales frequently at BN when a preorder price is scheduled to end and Release day pricing starts, but an expiring coupon can briefly be added as it goes live, but before the price changes. Sometimes it;s a couple hours, sometimes a couple minutes.

The biggest overlap sale i can remember was the infamous BN Criterion Summer sale when the 50% sale started before the B2G1 sale completely ended leading to a locust feeding of Biblical proportions.

King Solomon's Mines looks serviceable but don't expect a dazzling transfer. The movie itself is recommended as a b-movie Indiana Jones rip-off with a young Sharon Stone.

The Captive has stunning picture quality for 1915 if you're a silent collector.

I obtained so many titles during the last Olive Films sale that I had a hard time putting together an order. I ended up getting "King Solomon's Mines," "Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold," "Houdini" and "Evelyn."

... at a certain point in collecting, there's bound to be a few you call "guilty pleasures." No doubt an intervention would be helpful...

Oh no, I thought it was the 1950 version! That's what I get for placing an order so late in the evening.

I'll still give it a spin. A young Sharon Stone will probably hold my attention.

It's also got an excellent score by Jerry Goldsmith, which certainly elevates it quite a bit in the ranks of Cannon product.

Re: OLIVE Films BOGO Sale at Deep Discount

Man, how long does it take for these guys to get the package out ? Two tracking numbers for USPS were generated 5/8, its 5/11 today and tracking info still shows 'not found' for both

I placed an order last Wednesday night, one of the two went out Thursday and I got it Monday, the second went out Friday and I should have it this Friday. I placed another order of two on Monday and the first was "shipped" Tuesday (but not trackable yet, -haven't checked today) and the other (though listed as "in stock") hasn't shipped.
