Re: Olive Films / Deep Discount BOGO Sale

IMO, Olive is a bit overpriced. I've been getting mine from Hamilton. There was only 1 title in this sale I wanted: the Cagney indie.

Re: Olive Films / Deep Discount BOGO Sale

I picked up Iwo Jima and Birdman plus a $4 CD for free shipping (shipping is $4 anyway, might as well get a CD out of it).

Most everything is backordered, and DD does not do a great job with BOs.

Re: Olive Films Buy 1 Get 1

I looked at the sale. Is that Olive's complete catalog? I'm a bit disappointed if it is.

No - it's not and doesn't even include every Olive title DD carries. I have a few in my wish list that aren't included - titles I've been waiting to be included in one of these Olive B1G1 for a couple of years...

Re: Olive Films Buy 1 Get 1

Only needed to Olive titles to own everything I wanted from their catalog, and both were in the sale (BODY SNATCHERS and BUCKET OF BLOOD Signatures). Might pick up a couple of cheaper ones later on. Not sure what would be missing as DD has a longer list of titles than I thought Olive even had, although I suspect a couple of Signature editions I already own weren't among the selections.

I actually thought Olive had gone out of business at some point since there hasn't been any (?) new releases in forever.

I just found out the main person in charge of releasing Olive films is now the head of Kino. Maybe they never replaced him

OK... *That's* a surprise! I had pretty much written off any kind of bargain on the Olive titles still in stock anywhere...

I’ve also wondered about this through the last several sales. They seem to be the only retailer that discounts them, too. Maybe they bulk bought Olive’s remaining stock when it folded?

I want to say they were managing Olive's distribution or owned a significant amount of their inventory. Either way, they must own most of the remaining Olive discs in existence outside of private consumer hands.

Re: OLIVE Films BOGO Sale at Deep Discount

I remember when they bought the Collector's Choice cd label (& the retailer). They were pretty much giving away premium titles. I bought several hundred dollars worth for resale. I didn't get rich, but all sold at a profit.

Since Kino is now releasing the Olive films they purchased with better PQ and supplements (Olive were always bare bones except their signature line) and available for
