Universal is going to give my credit cards a workout ..... can't pass up the A&C sets, or Sliders, or Francis the Talking Mule, or Ma & Pa Kettle, or some of those Monster Legacy sets, or Double Indemnity, or ... or.... or....

Don't get people excited pre-maturely; you mean 'Dracula', not 'The Mummy'.

But thanks for the rest of the news.

Good news - Double Indemnity... Time to sit back and wait for the feature only DVD with no extras in a funky case with no insert for a low, low $26.98 MSRP.

According to Universal's website, all five of the films noirs to be released on July 6th will retail for $14.98:

This Gun for Hire (Frank Tuttle/1942)
Double Indemnity (Billy Wilder/1944)
The Black Angel (Roy William Neill/1946)
The Big Clock (John Farrow/1948)
Criss Cross (Robert Siodmak/1949)

No specs yet (and no mention of a box set), but given the low price, it may mean that Double Indemnity--IMHO, the greatest of all films noirs--will once again get a barebones release. I'll keep my fingers crossed that Universal will come through on this title.

I've still got the image one and I hope Universal at least does a better transfer.

I'll be happy to get a hold of these as well. Don't have to wait much longer for the vol 2 and looks like there are a lot of good ones on vol 3 as well.
