"Jules and Jim" / "Bringing Up Baby": To Keep or Not to Keep?

I came across a couple of DVD's this afternoon in my hunts that I was considering keeping for myself.

Firstly, Truffaut's "Jules and Jim" Criterion 2 Disc, $7.99 new. Im green to Truffaut, save "Fahrenheit 451", and am in dire need of Criterion and French cinema titles.

Secondly, "Bringing Up Baby", 2 Disc SE, $6 new.. Grant and Hepburn pretty much tell me it's a no brainer, but I'd like others imput. Worthy of the library?

FYI, blind buy threads belong in the DVD reviews forum.

Jules and Jim is a good movie if you like French New Wave. Bringing Up Baby is a gem. Keep both!

Great deals on both. I haven't seen J&J but I'd keep it in a snap. And Bringing Up Baby is a must-have in any collection.

I'm a fan of Truffaut but I hated Jules and Jim but 7.99 for a criterion is a good deal.

Great finds, snap them up! If for some reason you don't like either or both, you can certainly get your money back.

I'm a fan... and it's (by far) my favorite Truffaut film!

Quality movies both. As blind buys go, you did very well.

Not only are they both great movies, but they have fantastic extras to go along with them.
