I didn't know if you were aware that there is a box set holding all three of those, plus an extra disc. The box can probably be bought cheaper than the three individual discs, as well.

It is called Warner Legends (or something similar.)

Could be mistaken (don't own the DVDs), but aren't the remastered Charlie Chaplin DVDs warner 2-disc sets?

In addition to the two-disc JFK out now in a snapper, WB is releasing a more "official" Two Disc Special Edition to coincide with the 60th anniversary of JFK's assasination.

We have to wait another 20 years? I hope it's in HD-DVD format (or better)!

Not the easiest thing to get hold of by all accounts either...my order from 2 weeks ago still hasn't shipped

I got a bit annoyed at the wait, and emailed Amazon over the weekend. It shipped Monday. Coincidence?

I like saving the money with STL and Trivia but the wait is killing me. I still haven't gotten the Warner Legends box and now they say that the Scarface box set is out of stock too. These titles were no where to be found anyway at the B&M's that I checked so I guess I'd be waiting anyway.

Whoops. My mind was gone for that post.

But I'd assume it's safe to add the new JFK SE to the list. It streets 11/11.

Thanks for the info. I really need to catch up. I don't have any of the two-disc special editions released after 2/18/03. (time to join Columbia House again). I have all the two-disc movies except the Chaplin Collection.

I got a notice yesterday that shipping on my Warner Legends box from Amazon was delayed until Nov 21 and asking if I wanted to cancel. I check again today and it is "being prepared for shipping" and my order "cannot be modified." Weird. I've heard that others got the delay message, too. Maybe a lot of people canceled their orders and mine got bumped up in priority or something. In any event, I can't wait to get it!!!

Don't forget "The Lon Chaney Collection" coming from TCM Archives! (October 28th)

Also, the 4-disc Looney Tunes set should be considered. (the 2-disc version is worthless since it has NO extras and half the cartoons)

I've had this happen with them before too . . . they think that the order will be delayed and then send out the note, but then they get the order earlier than expected, but have already sent out the delay notice. One of the problems of not having your inventory and order fulfilment systems tied together closely enough.
