Re: General Costco DVD Thread

My local Costco has the new Blu-ray Alfred Hitchcock Masterpiece Collection for $164, and the Blue-ray Alien Anthology for $30. Picked up both. Christmas is coming.

Re: General Costco DVD Thread

Costco had several of Fox studio classic 4 film sets . 2 sets shrink wrapped for $12.99. That is 8 films for $12.99.

One set had
An Affair to Remember
Leave Her To heaven
A Letter to 3 Wives
Peyton Place
Anastasia
Gentleman's Agreement
The Ox-Bow Incident
The Snake Pit

Another:
Fantastic Voyage / The Lost World / The Towering Inferno / Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea/Battle for the Planet of the Apes/The Day The Earth Stood Still/The Neptune Factor/The Poseidon Adventure)

Another
The Blue Max / The Desert Fox / Immortal Sergeant / Sink the Bismarck/The Desert Rats / Twelve O'Clock High / Von Ryan's Express / The Young Lions

Another
Move Over, Darling / O. Henry's Full House / On the Riviera / Rally 'Round the Flag, Boys!/ Desk Set / Hollywood Cavalcade / How to Steal a Million / I Was a Male War Bride

They may have been another set.


I Love Lucy Season Sets for $12.99 each. Same new packaging that was exclusive to Target. Presumably these will have the remastered Season 1 set that was previously only available in the complete series box set. It was included in the exclusive Target sets and these appear to be the same.

Wuthering Heights has been OP for many years.
Thanks bought Wuthering Heights,I didn't know it was OOP.
I think it was just release this year by WB though.
And more to come.

I own the MGM release of Best Years of Our Lives(2000).but I'm going to buy this newer version too.I doubt it makes it to blu-ray anytime soon.




From early 2012
Seeking to boost its relatively healthy business for classic movies on DVD, Warner Bros. has signed a multi-year deal to release 73 classic films produced by industry legend Samuel Goldwyn.

Among the titles Warner is buying from the producer's son Samuel Goldwyn Jr. are best picture Academy Award winner "The Best Years of Our Lives," the Lou Gehrig biopic "Pride of the Yankees" with Gary Cooper, the musical "Guys and Dolls" with Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra, and Danny Kaye's "Hans Christian Andersen."

Great deal.I bought all these sets years ago,most if not all from Target.
I think most of them were around $10 for just one set.

The release at Costco is the first release of Wuthering Heights since it was released by HBO many years ago. This is the Warner Bros release mentioned in your quote. It is currently a Costco exclusive but will be released elsewhere soon. The first film to be released everywhere under the Warner Bros deal was Guys and Dolls in blu on November 6. Hans Christian Andersen follows on December 18 also in blu.

Re: General Costco DVD Thread

Each of the below is $14.99

Cary Grant Box Set
link for reference: http://www.amazon.com/Grant-Holiday-...dp/B000CEV3L4/

Kim Novak Collection
link for reference: http://www.amazon.com/Collection-Pic...dp/B003O2H7MA/

The Films of Rita Hayworth
link for reference: http://www.amazon.com/Films-Hayworth...dp/B0024FAG7Q/

The Frank Capra Collection
link for reference: http://www.amazon.com/Premiere-Colle...dp/B000ION7A8/

The Cary Grant set has some bad reviews regarding questionable claims on the digital remastering of the discs and that some of them looked as bad as public domain sets. But these reviews are from 2003 and the cover art of this Costco set has a different photo of Cary Grant. Am guessing these have been corrected since then. I am not watching all of them tonight to prove this point :-)

FYI The Towering Inferno in the Studio box is the old non-anamorphic disc.

I certainly wouldn't assume they "corrected" anything. Definitely let us know when you do watch your set what you think.

Re: General Costco DVD Thread

add this as well to the $12.99 sets: http://www.amazon.com/Leading-Ladies...dp/B000GETTIY/

b/w the Joan Crawford collection and Hitch, that would cover 'Dial M for Murder' and 'Mildred Pierce' - hence passed on it. But these $12.99 sets are very attractively priced.

It was around that price weeks before Black Friday. So it would hopefully still be that price unless Costco raised the price after Black Friday.

If any of the other $12.99 have 703843 stock number they would be $3 off. The Marx Bros and Busby Berkley sets have that stock number so they should also ring up with the discount.
