Target - 20th Century Fox Classics 4 discs sets 9.99

Target has the new "20th Century-Fox Studio Classics" series at half their list price ($19.98) for $9.99 - an amazing deal as most of these sell as single movies online for around $15. These are four disc sets are apparently the very same discs you get when you buy them individually the exception being the LES MISERABLES which was a two-disc set of the 1935 and 1952 films but in this set they are on a double-sided disc making that set 5 movies for $9.99.

Here are the sets I saw at my local Target:

ANNA KARENINA (1948)/A FAREWELL TO ARMS (1957)/LES MISRABLES (1935 and 1952)/THE SUN ALSO RISES

ANNA AND THE KING OF SIAM/CAN CAN/DADDY LONG LEGS/STAR!

THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY/THE BIBLE/DEMETRIUS AND THE GLADIATORS/THE ROBE

FRANCIS OF ASSISI/THE GOSPEL ROAD/THE SONG OF BERNADETTE/A MAN CALLED PETER

JULES VERNE'S JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH/MY FRIEND FLICKA/LITTLE MISS BROADWAY/THOSE MAGNIFICENT MEN IN THEIR FLYING MACHINES

AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER/PEYTON PLACE/LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN/A LETTER TO THREE WIVES

There's also a seventh set, a film noir collection, that I didn't see locally but it may be in your Target

LAURA/BLACK WIDOW (1954)/CALL NORTHSIDE 777/DANGEROUS CROSSING

Incredibly this half-off-list-price sale is not even heralded at Target - it's apparently their regular price there and these dvds are on the wall with the rest of their current stock.

Re: Target - 20th Century Fox Classics 4 discs sets 9.99

I also got the (mostly) musical Fox Studio pack for $9.99 at Target last week: Anna and the King of Siam/Can-can/Daddy Longlegs/Star. All these packs are excellent values if you don't have at least two of the movies in the pack.

Target has just about all of the Warner 4-packs for $9.99 as well.

Ironically, my local Target was selling Fox 2 and 3 packs for $15 and up while the 4-pack Studio Collection was going for $9.99.

There's also at least two more sets available in the series, both available on Amazon (search under "Classic Quad Set")

Set 7 (ANASTASIA / GENTLEMEN'S AGREEMENT / THE OX BOW INCIDENT /THE SNAKE PIT)

Set 9 (ALL ABOUT EVE / BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS / THE INN OF THE SIXTH HAPPINESS / VALLEY OF THE DOLLS)

Some more sets will be released later in teh Summer according to Amazon.

I agree with the OP that Target's price for the other entries in this series is fantastic. I'd be surprised if set 9 ends up being sold at Target though, as it includes a NC-17 movie.

I thought the Shirley Temple movie with JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH and THOSE ... FLYING MACHINES was a rough match but yowza - ALL ABOUT EVE and THE INN OF THE SIXTH HAPPINESS with the VALLEY OF THE DOLLS movies!!!!

Yes, and the proof is in the ratings of the four movies: 2 G-ratings, 1 PG-13, and 1 NC-17. Not exactly a typical combination for a single box set.

That would be the only one of interest to me also.

Why am I not surprised that my local Target hasn't marked down the prices of these sets?

Did you scan them? Shelf tags mean nothing.

Thanks OP, I'll pick up a few more I'm sure.

Re: Target - 20th Century Fox Classics 4 discs sets 9.99

Thanks for the heads up. I picked up three of the Fox sets, plus the WB Lethal Weapon 4-movie set at the same price. Three of the Lethal Weapon movies are listed as Unrated, and claim to have different material than the original release and noted as "Directors Cuts". Does this mean they have additional material, or are they censored in some way?

The "Directors Cut" of the first three Lethal Weapon movies are extended cuts, running about 3-5 minutes longer than the originals. You can check IMDB to see the additional material. These Directors Cuts have been released previously separately on DVD a few years after the original theatrical version came out.

There was nothing to scan, my store didn't even have these sets. I doubt I'd be returning... might check a different store though.

Even though I'm passing on this first round, applause for the OP. I never would have cruised the multi-title sets at my local store. I'll be picking up sets 11-14 for sure.

If you go on the Target website and look up Fox Studio Classics there is a link to let you know what stores in your area carry them.

Bump. Street date for volume 12 was supposedly June 1. Has anyone seen titles in the new round show up?

Per the Target website the price is now $8.99 per 4 movie set. They still only list Volumes 1-6 .

Re: Target - 20th Century Fox Classics 4 discs sets 9.99

To answer my own question, not yet. At least not here in Target's 'hood (suburban Minneapolis). I decided I would pick up four of the original six at the $8.99 sale price, passing on the two volumes of biblical epics. It looks like other studio four-pack collections are on sale at the same price.

Just curious about Set 9: are the Valley of the Dolls films the same ones that had been sold for $20 apiece for the past few years?

Re: Target - 20th Century Fox Classics 4 discs sets 9.99

Thanks OP!! I've been eyeing a couple of these and looking for "reasonable" prices (which strikes me as funny since the 4 titles in *any* of these sets could cost as much as $40 *on sale* outside these sets which makes the MSRP quite "reasonable"). I missed this when originally posted and only visit Target when someone posts a "deal".

I picked up:

ANNA KARENINA (1948)/A FAREWELL TO ARMS (1957)/LES MISRABLES (1935 and 1952)/THE SUN ALSO RISES
THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY/THE BIBLE/DEMETRIUS AND THE GLADIATORS/THE ROBE

Got them both for *less* than the cost of just a couple of the titles individually - $19.42 for both - tax included! Even though I already own a couple of the titles it's well worth the cost.

There are several more I'd love to get at these prices but Target here only has the first 6 as many have reported.
